Dear Readers who stumble across my page,
Today is November 21st and I just wanted to say that my heart is saddened by the events from Occupy Davis.
My youngest brother is applying to colleges and I want to tell him not to apply to Davis anymore because of the recent going-ons. But hopefully things can only improve from here.
- Occupy Davis, Nov. 18th Page
- Something that really struck me: Why I'm not visiting UC Davis in April by NYU Professor Alexander R. Galloway
- And something a little more humorous.

In case you didn't get the memo, Chibi now resides in San Jose, CA doing wine-related work. She lives with StewartShearer of the former Psi Phi organization. She formerly lived in San Francisco and worked at Maido (then called Kinokunya Stationary and Gifts) in Japantown where she became a pen nerd.
After graduation, Chibi worked at Crepe House Uni until they closed. After that, she worked Wednesday Farmers Market for Monticello Bistro. She also helped them out for catering events and helped to set up their new restaurant, Monticello Seasonal Cuisine.
Chibi graduated from UCDavis in 2009 with a B.S. in Biological Sciences, with an emphasis in Microbiology and a focus on biotechnology. She is also interested in Microbial Food Science, taking Food Science courses when she can. Her last UCDavis course was a Study Abroad course on viticulture (VEN3) in France! She also minored in English.
Chibi is Brazilian, Chinese, and Japanese. Her former residence is the Casa de Cosplay.
"Chibi" means "small/ short." She first gained the nickname because in high school, she had a senior friend named Stephanie, whose nickname was Zahni. To avoid confusion, people called her Chibi Zahni, or Chibi Zee. Now she goes by just Chibi. Although it does help that she is small, her nickname did not originate from her height.
Chibi has retired from being mascot of the Davis Anime Club.
Her title as mascot for DRAGON still stands, as she still has not passed on her crown.
As describled by WilliamLewis Chibi is awesome!

2008-09-04 15:09:22 Hey, I'd love to agree re: cosplay, but during the mid to late 1990s the term "cosplay" utterly took over for all fandom masquerade and costuming. I've always loathed the generalization of the term (it really watered down the original roots of the term, and I lament the shrinking usage of fandom terms with their own history), but it is now in general use among fandom and the original terms it has replaced are dwindling. I'd love to fight against that, but the general real-world usage among, say, Ghostbuster cosplayers or Klingon groups is to use "cosplay", and it pops up in SF cons all the time as a general replacement for the older costuming terms. (Of course, "costuming" somewhat replaced "masquerade" during the 1980s, so it's an old old cycle). Nowadays the term has a larger meaning that applies to different groups, which is why I expanded the scope of the intro — people coming to the entry will be arriving from different perspectives. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
2008-12-19 00:45:29 Hey, I missed the meeting tonight so I don't know the details for this trip to SF on Saturday, but I'd like to go and can drive with room for one person if that would be helpful. —NickSchmalenberger

2009-05-21 12:58:21 You really should put up a pic of yourself. I usually don't suggest this, but I THINK I've seen you @ Dragon, but I'm not sure... —MasonMurray

2010-10-23 16:34:27 Hey, I hope you don't mind, but I "dotted" your stats. (Actually, I hope you like it — I thought the idea of a character sheet for a profile was nifty, so this is my way of trying to help with the cool idea). If you want to go back to the way it was, you can always revert the changes. If you have any questions as to how, just ask, and I'll help you. I'm assuming that's nWoD, in which case, I can't remember if languages is a dot per language, or doubles with each dot. I remember they changed it, but I can't recall if it was just made a merit or if the per-level languages was altered as well. —JabberWokky
2011-01-31 06:30:42 No problem, and I'm really glad you like them! We moved fairly recently, and have had serious problems with gamers in Nashville being flakes. Lots of oddball cancellations, etc. We're literally across from an under construction park with cool little ponds and tiny bridges, etc., which is right between two universities (Vanderbilt and Belmont)... ideal LARPing space. As soon as they finish building it and the weather warms up, we're going to try and start a local game. —JabberWokky
