What does "That Girl is Hoisin" mean? Originally starting as a joke between friends when Bell Biv DeVoe's "Poison" would come on, my friends would replace "poison" with "hoisin," because I'm Vietnamese. And they're racist.
Where did "Hoisin Ivy" come from? Just a play on words.
Why is your blog called That Girl is Hoisin but your URL is hoisinivy? Because typing thatgirlishoisin is hard for me.
Where did you meet Rye Bread? Through mutual friends - his cousin was dating my best friend.
Why do you call him Rye Bread? I have no idea, but his username for everything is The Real Rye, similar to how mine is HoisinIvy for everything. I don't even like rye bread.
