sorry

Sigh..

 

Urg, I didn’t want to have to resort to this, but I guess I’m having a lot more trouble with adjusting to my new schedule than I thought. As a result, it’s looking like updates will be a little more random and sporadic, at best, during the month of September. We may just have a month of silly, simple shots like this one.


Apologies..

Apologies..

I know it’s pretty tacky of me to already fall behind, considering how I just got back. Unfortunately, my new job has become rather demanding as of late due to upcoming deadlines, and my focus will ultimately be on my source of income. The fact that I’m uploading this at 3:35AM may give curious minds […]

The Weird Thing About Korean Bathrooms

Or rather, things. Or rather, Alfred.

Sorry, that is a joke with an incredibly narrow scope, but I'll leave it in and see if anyone gets it. Maybe I'll give you a prize.

ANYWAYS. I figured that since I spend so much of my time thinking about bathrooms, I'd better make a post about it, in hopes that after taking the time to write about my problems, they might plague me less. Here's hoping!

1. Where the hell is the toilet paper?


Before I moved to Korea, I never realized how lucky I was to be able to assume that all bathrooms would have toilet paper. I took toilet paper for granted. It was always there, unless I forgot to buy it. It was something I could count on.

Hello Again..

Hey there, readers. It’s me again. I hope I haven’t managed to lose too many of you over the past few weeks. I know this probably isn’t the update you were hoping for, but it’s the best I could do for now.

Before I go on, let me just apologize for the sudden disappearance without offering any sort of explanation. Also, despite having stuff regarding the ferry disaster sitting on the front page for so long, the tragedy was not at all the reason for my absence. Honestly speaking, it wasn’t supposed to be up for longer than a week.


Say What?! Episode 8: Koreans Don’t Apologize?

This week’s episode of Say What?! Wednesday is related to the last episode about personal space. Last week we talked about personal bubbles, but what happens when that personal bubble is violated? In America, it feels like if people come within two arms length of you they apologize for possibly being in your way. That’s one thing I noticed when I visited America last time, and I was always looking around for someone else they could be apologizing to because it seemed overboard to be apologizing to me!

We’ve been living in Korea for over 3 years, and this is just one of the examples of how much Korea has changed us! Apologies are not given out often or casually here, especially when it comes to violating your personal bubble. Koreans’ personal bubbles are much smaller, simply because of the size of Korea and its population density.


Sick

Sick

Hey readers! I am so very very very VERY sorry for the weak update this week. At some point during my amazing weekend, I managed to catch something that has left me in a very bad place. I’m surprised I was able to draw this quick thing without passing out. Does it look okay? I fear I might be hallucinating and just drawing senseless pictures of cats.

Anyways, to make up for this mishap, I’ll have a brand new comic for you next week. Here’s hoping it doesn’t mess with the schedule too much!

Also, for you Americans (and even non-Americans), I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I have so much to be thankful for (though I could do without this cold), and the awesome support I’ve received from you readers makes up a large part of by big ball of things to be grateful for.


Getting Old

Getting Old

Hey guys, sorry to say that there won’t be a comic this week. Life seems to get insanely busy at the weirdest times, no? I hope everyone is having a great summer so far!

While there is no comic, I hope this picture of me as an ajumma will do for now. My birthday was this week (technically, just an hour or so ago), and I’m feeling insanely old. I’ll be an ajumma before it anyway. For anyone that doesn’t know what an ajumma (아줌마) is, it’s basically a title given to middle aged women. While being a middle aged woman doesn’t make one stand out in any way, Korean middle aged women are something else.  I will be sure to cover more on this topic in future comics.


Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of comic! It’s going to be a few days late this week. To make up for it, here’s an image I drew for our fine fans at Facebook for Thanksgiving Day. I know it’s too late to post this here, but I hope it will do until I get the new comic up.

Here’s the explanation that went with the image.
