How Many Labels Do I Have?

weather: partially sunny
outside: 13°C
mood: intrigued
If I am just "The Bride" to you, then you are a member of the general public and a guest in my journal. Welcome =)

If you call me "新娘子", you're a friend of my husband's family who can't remember my real name to save your life. =D

If I am "Mrs. Lin" to you, then you are either a vendor or a friend who has invited me to his/her wedding.

If I am "Mrs. Hayashi", then you are most likely Japanese and found me on Orkut. =)

If I am "林玉蘋" (Lin YüPing) to you, then you know me from Orkut or you read my Chinese journal.

If you're confused as to why my initials are "J. L.", then you are a pre-LJ friend that I haven't explained it to. In which case, e-mail me and I'll explain =)

If you call me "Married Bum #2", you are my husband's Best Man. In which case, "Married Bum #1" says he's burning your CDs right now.

If you call me "大師姐", then WOW, 好久不見! E-mail me 90 SECONDS AGO!!! =D These would be the kids at the Guangdong University of Engineering where my father is alumni. We went back for the school's 40th Anniversary and I became a minor celebrity there, being a fellow Geek who could speak both English and Cantonese. They had me read one of the lessons aloud in the senior year Technical English class.

If you call me "舅媽" or "嬸嬸", you are one of my husband's cousins' children.

If you call me "婆婆", you are my little Granddaughter =)

If you call me "老大的太太", you are my husband's Grandfather and can never remember my name nowadays *sigh* =\

If you call me "嘉嘉", you are my parents or extended family on my side.

If you keep calling me by my brother's name and my brother by my name, you're my Mom.

If you call me "Hey" or just holler in my general direction, then you are userinfoHusband Guy.

If you keep calling me by my brother's name and my brother by my name, you're my Mom.

When all three of us were home, this would happen with me and my two brothers, except in the rare instances where Mom used our Chinese names. What also helps a lot is the fact that the one she's trying to talk to is usually named last.

Note the "usually." XD It's not always the last one. On bad days, she'll go through five or six names, hitting the correct one and then changing again.

I don't believe you are old enough to be called 婆婆!!! What is your granddaughter's real relation to you??

And I don't understand the J.L........

My Maternal Grandfather had three wives, 9 daughters and 4 sons. With the huge age spread, I have cousins who are older than my parents. This makes their children (my neices and nephews) older than me. Their children (my cousins' Grandchildren) call me "Grandma" in one form or another, but for the younger ones, they shorten it to just "Grandma" =D

Hmmm... about the only all roman alphabet options that I can understand is the JL one. I had no idea that your initials were even JL. I mean, the L I think I can figure out, but the J... hmmm... Suppose the name I know you as is something you got in witness protection.
