I used to have a Mcbreakfast every Friday morning, as a reward for getting through a week. I wake up relatively early, and had no problem in ordering it. But recently, they've had the "order later" thing come up. I presume it's because they have no drivers at the time?!

It's been months like this, even on a Saturday morning, the delivery service doesn't start till like 9.

Other times, it's taken hours to come. Surely, it can't be difficult to find delivery drivers?!

I'm actually really fond of the shrimp burgers. First had one at a McDonald's in Japan. Glad they're in Korea too. Been many a moon since I've been to a McD's though. I feel like I see more Burger Kings around than Mcdonald's where I go.

So, a few mornings this past week my officemates have come in to find piles of almonds in their computer cabinets in their desks. They think it's rats, but where are all of these almonds coming from and why are rats supposedly hoarding handfuls of them by the computers? Weird...at least thanks to whoever's doing it, the office is getting a few deep cleanings for once. I hope this mystery rat is caught before I leave in Feb.
So, for all of you who think that their school offices are disgraceful nests of filth, you know what to do! ;D

What a waste of almonds! Use a different nut!

Just ordered a 24 pack of sweet, sweet Dr. Pepper from Gmarket.

I imagined #basedcowboyshirt feeling a sudden shudder down his spine as soon as I clicked 'buy now'  ;D

Ew. Unless it was Diet Dr. Pepper. Then... a little bit less ew. Maybe.

If sugar is literally poison, then what of aspartame?

Aspartame is literally poison, too. But! It's obviously the lesser of two evils. Love me some Diet Coke.

I'm actually with you on sugar. But artificial sweeteners?

They're basically harmless.

The available evidence points to the fact that there appears to be a correlation between sugar consumption and health problems; none can be detected with artificial sweeteners.

Personally I just don't like the taste of aspartame. There's an odd aftertaste I can never quite get over.

Coworker points to the giant 3D snowflake I made for practice and asked if I am stressed. Lol just practicing

I know, donovan, but Waygook.org user yirj17 really wanted me to say it was poison.

Aspartame is awesome because I can drink a sweet thing without eating sugar.

But yeah, it does taste funky. And it does not mix well with booze. Like, such a gnarly taste.

But otherwise, basically less poisonous than sugar in every way.

I thought they had found that artificial sweetners had the same effect in regards to insulin production as sugar.

Maybe not literally, but basically yeah   :laugh:

It honestly does taste artificial though. Makes me want to ingest real sugar pronto to compensate.

I don't know if it's just me but the McDonald burgers don't taste the same here as they do back home. Maybe it's just because they're usually not as "fresh" or something, but they don't have the same flavor? Not really a big fan. But I still like the fries and morning sandwiches.

And I prefer BK over McD. So glad we're finally getting one that I can actually find around here.

In North America the meat in McDonalds and Burger King is way fresher and the burgers are usually 100% beef from the said country. Here they use Australian beef usually so it is frozen and shipped here so there is a frozen/old taste to the burgers here.

Some steaks and roasts here are also just glued meat especially at buffets. I got sick from eating glued meat from a supermarket here.

Planning a Christmas lesson and trying to decide on a video to show them. Thinking of "What's This?" from Nightmare Before Christmas (can't find any Korean subtitles but I don't think it's that big a deal, it's pretty fast paced anyway and very visual) along with a video of a light show.

So, Frozen vs Star Wars? I think Frozen might go well for elementary but I like the different camera shots in the Star Wars one, so maybe that one for middle?

No lies, I'm rabidly excited about Christmas, but I hope to never live next to people like this.

I vote Star Wars.

There is a Star Wars/Up Town Funk making the rounds as well.

I agree, Frozen would be better for elementary and Star Wars for middle just because elementary kids will love the song while middle school kids would probably be more impressed with the better light timing of Star Wars.

I also showed the original with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra to my kids last year, went over very well.

I watched a kid carefully and systematically scribble out a girl's face in his textbook before finally moving on to complete the writing activity for today. I'm actually a little disturbed by the boy's very thorough and intense attention to detail in this endeavor, but I'm sure the textbook girl had it coming.
