Random Thoughts

So things didn't exactly turn out as I had hoped in trivia last night so instead of documenting our dominance in the trivia arena you're being forced to read whatever the heck happens to come out of my head for the next 30 minutes or so. Just for the record, we lost by 2 points last night, not bad since we dug ourselves a pretty deep hole after the first round which was theatre. Friggin theatre, really? How is that a category? I don't know Molier but I can tell you I don't like him. This will cause some drama but Shakespeare is overrated and Andrew Lloyd Webber doesn't deserve to clean my gym socks. Ok, ALW is a cool dude and I dig Magical Mr. Mistoffelees but everything else...blaaaaaah! Ok, I've said my peace.

Korean kids whine, Korean women really whine, and I don't even know how to classify the god awful noises that come out of elderly Korean women but it causes glasses to crack if they are within 20 feet of the shrieking Korean banshees.

Over the past 62 days, I've eaten Chinese food 12 times for lunch, had Lotteria (more on this in a second) 9 times, spent 10 amazing days in Thailand, I've watched 8 Celtics games, read no less than 50 articles about the Red Sox and Spring Training, I've seen an interview 6 times of Alex Rodriguez saying he used steroids for a 3 year period but being convinced he still wasn't telling the whole truth, been on a winning trivia team 6 times spanning an 8 week period. All of the things listed have occured more frequently than the amount of classes I've taught in the same time period. I've taught 5 classes in 2+ months and I've been asked more than once if I'm actually paid to screw around on facebook and drink and I have a definitive answer. Yes. This comes to an end on Monday which I'm happy about, I need structure in my life, badly.

I was warned that my school might possibly break up the greatest tandem since Wayne and Garth, which would be Jang and myself. At the start of a new semester there's the potential for a new co-teacher to be given to the native english speaking teacher. Luckily for the sake of the school they allowed Jang and I to continue to break down language and cultural barriers like we're David Hasselhoff tearing down the Berlin Wall.
 
Lotteria, the Korean equivalent is own by the Lotte Corporation. The Lotte Corp is responsible for departments stores, gum, juice, and crappy hamburgers made with Australian beef. I love Australia but I don't like the beef they're shipping to Korea. Lotte sells the kind of french fries that they would sell at a baseball field where Little League is played, they also sell squid rings instead of onion rings and tend to cover all the sandwiches with a god awful brown sauce that's supposed to be sweet and sour but comes off tasting like sewage waste coming from the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant.

Koreans love America and each man or woman wants to sleep with Barack Obama...twice but for reasons which they don't even fully understand, they hate American beef. America's had 1 case of Mad Cow Disease in like 10 years but because of that one case they think they will all die if they ingest American beef. Beef in this country is not good, infact I don't even know what to compare it to, and this is coming from someone who just compared a sauce to nuclear waste. The beef is essentially that bad.

This Saturday night I'll be going to Hooters in Seoul for my first taste of buffalo wings in over 6 months. I've gone roughly 185 days without buffalo wings which isn't cool, not one bit, not at all. But I'm curious about the Korean waitstaff, the female population of this country doesn't exactly fill out a sweater but to be completely honest, I'm way more focused on actually getting to eat wings than any of the peripheral stuff that will be going on. Wings on the bone, wings off the bone, doesn't really matter, it's wings and sauce and bleu cheese and that's what's up.

Tonight I will be engaging in my 4th Century Club and we're going for 125. For those of you who might be unaware, we will be doing 1 shot of beer for 125 consecutive minutes adn that will equal roughly 8.5 beers in two hours. The beer's not the problem, the carbonation is as it fills you up and only will power will allow you to succeed in this event. If you attempt this, don't eat within 2 hours of beginning otherwise it'll get ugly, just trust me on this.

If students misbehave at my school, the disciplinarian who's a physics teacher, makes the students crab walk around the entire perimeter of the school. Students will always make sure their shirts are tucked in and they aren't tardy, I promise you this much.

I've reconnected with a few people from the past in the last couple of weeks and it's helped me to realize that when you're close with someone it really doesn't matter how long it's been because that chemistry never goes away. The same things you thought when you were 16 are still funny at 26 plus you can laugh at how stupid you may have been and how lucky you were to survive some of the things that your stupidity got you into. Knowing that they're doing ok and living a happy life isn't a good thing, it's a great thing. I'm looking forward to getting back and catching up in real time and not world wide web time.

Lost and 24 are both on fire right now and if anyone disagrees then you can just shut your big yapper. Benjamin Linus on Lost might be the greatest bad guy in the history of television. Better than Montgomery Burns, JR Ewing, Dr. Smith, Antoine Mitchell, Klingons or Sleestaks.


Have a good weekend peeps.

Intrigued in Incheon
