You'd like to think that Alexandra Wallace, the charmer of a UCLA student who posted a racist rant about Asians last Friday, was drunk when she made her now-infamous video. Or high. Or very, very confused.

Instead, the video was apparently part of what she hoped would become an entire blog -- an idea that was supported by her father. The Sacramento Bee reports:

...it seems the original video was not intended to be a one-time hit. "My daughter wants to start a blog," wrote Wallace's dad on his Facebook page.

John Wallace, a Sacramento-area retail developer, posted on Friday at 11:17 a.m.: "She's asking for domain suggestions for 'Asians on their cellphones in the library!' She's shooting videos as I write."

Alexandra, who is from Fair Oaks in Northern California, has since taken down the video, and her dad's Facebook page is nowhere to be found.
