Those cakes look amazing but I'm not fond of the flavor of fondant.  Or maybe I've just never had good fondant.

My wife makes a marshmallow based one that is ok.

My wife and I went to snag some lunch today. I got my usual coffee + milk. I pick up the cup and it's like half full. Take a sip and it's ice cold and tastes like milk.

Upon hearing Americano + milk the lady behind the counter took an espresso shot and then dumped a full thing of milk in with it.

We go back up and the manager just looks at us, listens to what my wife says and knows what I need instantly. He's doing this massive eye roll response as the adjumma behind him is saying she had never heard of that before. The other two college kids behind the counter + adjumma watch him make the drink like he is turning water into wine.

I was surprised as this was on the campus of a major university with a large contingent of foreign students (and I imagine exchange students). I can't be the first white guy who can't handle black coffee.

It could be that others simply order a coffee and then add milk by themselves at the condiment counter.

What fancy coffee shop do you frequent? The only things the condiment counters have in my area are straws, napkins, and, occasionally, sweetener.

Whenever I see the thread "Doing Privates in Korea" pop up, I just think, "Phrasing!"

I've seen too many episodes of Archer.

This depends on two things;

1. There is milk and/or cream at the condiment counter.
2. There is a condiment counter.

Both are untrue in this case.

So there's a new visiting teacher and I greeted him and he responded in kind. 

Then he kind of kept looking at me as though he expected me to say something else.  Slowly I realize that maybe he's wondering if I'm going to introduce myself.  By this time the silence has become palpable and slightly awkward (we both had smiles pasted to our faces) but then another teacher swooped in to guide him to his classroom. 

On the bright side, he seems much nicer than the last samul nori teacher who refused to even say hello (I always gave my greetings in Korean) and would literally just glare at me.

The only Korean friend I've made in Korea was one of these guys. We were made to sit awkwardly next to each other trying to make conversation.

He asks if I know what Xbox is. Friendship born.

I use one of those plastic spoons from Baskin Robbins to stir my drinks at school. It's been my faithful companion for over a year now and nothing has stirred my coffee to perfection the way that little piece of pink plastic has.

And now it's gone. I put it in its usual paper cup for safekeeping, but when I called upon its services once more, it was nowhere to be found.

Now I need to figure out what little weirdo flittered off with it, and to what end.

I'm uploading a picture of the dearly departed into next week's ppts. I may never gain closure over this, but my friend WILL be remembered.

Lol yeah I got it in the summer and use it to annoy the poop out of my hamster. I bought too many dumb instruments here otherwise that melodica would be mine... I haven't seen the dog ones. I'm intrigued now and might need one to enhance my hamster annoying abilities... Jarvis has been being a terrible room mate lately and needs to be put in her place...
