There was a shark in the fish market near my apartment the other day. It took the woman all day to chop it up. I bent over and peered into the shark’s eyes. All I could think was, “Wow, that is a massive beast.” I love Suyeong.

These pictures are proof of why I should not drink heavily and then go to McDonalds and take photos of my friends and me. Pictured are my two best friends here in Korea. We look ridiculous.

My kids seem to have the same dozen or so English words in their vocabulary that they regularly use. I wish “fat” was not one of them. I know I harp on this all the time. I just need to find some middle ground. The little kids had a HUGE laugh about how fat this cat was and how it was SO funny. After a few minutes of their laughter, I snapped at them that the word had become verboten. I like using big words that they can’t spell.

When my mom and I are looking for a late night snack, we also go for sundae (순대) —sausage made from pig intestines stuffed with blood, noodles, and vegetables. So delicious!

I’m having a really good day today. Happy that it’s Friday. That is all.

I went to Taejongdae and took a ferry ride around the island with two Korean friends. They looked confused when I started singing The Lonely Island’s I’m On A Boat. “Like Kevin Garnett, anything is possible” did not translate over very well.

Screen shot from a video I took with one of my favorite kids. After I leave, I will miss seconds like this. I cannot believe I have been here for four months already. Time flies.

When Korean people get wasted, they get WASTED. Seeing a person passed out on the streets or in the subway is not uncommon. I guess I know what to do if my hagwon goes out of business and I am forced to move out of my apartment. Oh yeah…

While South Korea has no history whatsoever related to or even associated with Halloween, I was pleasantly surprised by the celebration at work for the kids and in the streets at night. Foreigners swarmed KSU with great costumes, and vigor to match. I was a party animal, with a large group of friends. I am exhausted from the weekend festivities. What a great holiday!
