OT: Iris Macadangdang, The Legend

Submitted by Caesar on April 7th, 2009 at 5:34 PM

As a professional, I know Iris is unrivaled in her ability to figure out what is most important and deploy the perfect approach to those issues. Her name is certainly beautiful and unique, but I ask for your vote because she's a genuinely beautiful person. 

Go Blue.

This diary is bizarre because I had a Spanish class with her several years ago before I graduated. I think it was Spanish 232 with Andy Noverr. We were usually paired up in class for dialog exercises. Small world. Either way, I saw the diary title and wondered if I had read it correctly.

But yeah, she's pretty cool. And she listens to Pat Metheny, which is pretty cool, too.

Didn't get the Spanish Apartment, but did get Y Tu Mama Tambien (softcore porn). I'm pretty sure we saw the others, save Maria Full of Grace. We saw TYMT in a small, private screening room in the MLB. I didn't even know they had those at that point, and never had any other reason to go to a private screening room again.

I'm not sure who this Caesar guy is, but this is the second post of his and he reminds me of a lost creative writing major. Labeling "OT" is fine and good, but at a certain point doesn't this remind you of Talladega Nights and Will Ferrell and "all due respect, but..." In a way it's acceptable, but not really. Lions and Pistons and favorite Zingerman's sandwich all seem like somewhat acceptable OT threads, but "I have Iris Macadangdanged during a game" rubs me the wrong way, to carry the tune.

Sorry if it doesn't meet the standards around here. I've read the blog for a while and have been meaning to sign up. I also had a class with Iris once, so reading the name was kinda crazy and I thought I'd jump in.

My roommate and I are obsessed with the woman who is Iris Macadangdang. We even changed our dog's name to Macadangdang in her honor. We renamed Macadamia nuts "Macadangdang nuts". We probably say her name 50-60 times per day and have alienated our friends and family. We feel this is not healthy but the power of the Macadangdang has taken over.

All hail, Caesar!

I've never been to Michigan, I really can't stand sports, but I bow, I bow to your infinite creativity.

I no longer remember how I first happened upon the illustrious name Iris Macadangdang, but it's been a while now.  And your posts about it fill me with joy.  They are goddamn hilarious (as are some of the comments they elicit).

Anyway, thank you.  Hubby and I can't stop saying her name, either.  Ave atque vale!
