Chronicles of a girl nicknamed beanbean.

"beanbean" is a moniker my mom gave me in Chinese, as a sign of her affection. My family has never, ever, called me by my given name, and they rarely use my American name. I'll always be "bean bean" or "piggy monkey" or "stinky monkey" or "stinky bean" or "monkey pig" or "fat piggy" or "skinny monkey". (Beginning to see a pattern here?) Of course, they all sound a bit cuter, or at least less-bizarre in Chinese. I love my mommy. =)
