So now you smell like all those young Korean guys who are covered in cheap cologne...

They make the morning commute really unpleasant.

Not sure how any person could actually enjoy smelling like that.  It's like they are trying to disguise cigarettes and filth.

There might be a lot of truth behind that. They work really hard to try and disguise the smell of cigarettes around here, and there are A LOT of smokers.

The Principal had me come down to her office and fed me pork, onions, peppers, kimchi, and apple slices.

It was tasty

But also a bit strange

And she asked me to teach her how to swing dance during vacation

Methinks (and have for awhile) that she does not, in fact, think of you as a daughter.

Fact: only washing your hands hella gets the smell of smoke off them.

Or time. Peeps that think they're being stealth by covering up with trash perfume are just making the problem worse.

As for clothes smelling like smoke, it's honestly not too hard to keep that under control unless you never clean your clothes. Or if you're going to clubs or bars where you can smoke inside still. Then your jacket gonna be stank.

Waygook.org website user donovan, this is for you:

[url]

Thanks :laugh: Isn't that the the girl from G-bus's Yap TV?
I take issue with her equating Nutella and jam, otherwise I could make it my anthem~~

For a while we were drinking oolong tea out of a nice hot water thermos pitcher thing instead of brewing a second pot of coffee after lunch, but I guess the oolong tea is gone now.

Oolong seems to have all but disappeared from Korea. I can't find it anywhere on the shelves at any market these days. Anyone have any idea what gives? I love oolong.

If it makes you feel better, it wasn't particularly good oolong tea

"Swing dancing." Maybe she "swings" that way.

Those mini bottles of febreeze type stuff from the convenience stores are a godsend. They cover up the smell without being too obvious about it. I always keep one in my bag.

I have a work dinner tonight, so that'll be an extra 3 or 4 hours until I can have my after work smoke  :cry: :cry:

I was thinking that I had some good Oolong here recently... but then I remembered it was in Shanghai.

As you were.

I like to slather on Tiger Balm before work to disguise the fact that I don't actually smoke: need to keep up the appearance of coolness with the kiddies! Bonus: the burning numbness keeps my mind off the text-book drivel I'm obliged to teach!  :azn:

I have had to tell more than one of my swing dance friends that NO, you CANNOT call yourself a "swinger" and we do not go to the "swing bar" and you should definitely not ask someone "Do you swing?"

And then there's the inevitable Korean, "OMG, you have such a dirty mind. Only you would think that." Even though, 90% of North Americans would take it that way. Nope. You're dirty.

It's like drugs. "OMG, why do you know so much about drugs???"

Uhhhh, sorry that I know that heroine gets shot up your arm and coke goes up your nose? This is shit you know when you're 12.

Actually, both drugs can be injected, smoked or snorted.  In the books, Sherlock Holmes injected himself with a 7% cocaine solution for relaxation.

Yeah, but you don't learn that until you're 16.  ;D

Anyway, yeah, you can snort heroine but Mia Wallace taught us a valuable lesson.
