Can't wait to try one of the other 호떡 places that opened up right beside my place. Last year there were none nearby, this year I got 3 already with competitive pricing :D

I love the smell of the dry ones. Of course they're full of sugar poison so I don't eat them, but they smell delicious.

Naw, I like 'em sopping in grease, straight off the grill in to a cup that burns my hand as the poison leaks out :)

Had one yesterday that was pretty good, but I need to see what the others have to offer :)

If you ever get a chance to try the dry ones, you should give them a shot.

I wish they made meat versions. Sopping in crease and stuffed into a cup and stuffed into my mouth.

I had a japchae hotteok in Seoul.  I was wondering what this huge friggin line was all about and saw this woman at a stall making a gigantic batch of japchae and stuffing them into hotteok.  You bet I hopped in line!  It moved pretty quickly, wasn't a terribly long wait at all. 

Greasy hotteok stuffed into paper bag and promptly stuffed into my mouth.  Strangely addicting.  I immediately wanted more but resisted.

I had a dry one once but wasn't too fond of it. But maybe it was just from a place that wasn't very good.

Had some horrid back pain (don't recall anything out of the ordinary happening so I have no idea what the cause was) that started late last week, suffered through the weekend and the earlier part of this week.  I figured I'd give it a few days to see if it would improve on its own.  It was, albeit very incrementally.  My coT found out, insisted on taking me to the hospital-- turns out a doctor there actually speaks English very well! 

Doctor:  On a scale of 1 to 10, 2 ~ 3 being mild pain, 7 like giving birth, and 10 like you wanna die. 

 :laugh:  Apparently he studied abroad in the US for a year.  Had a brief consultation, got prescribed some pain meds and physical therapy.  The physical therapy took about an hour and it cost only ... cheon won.   :shocked: :huh:  And it was so effective that I didn't bother taking meds.  Had another round today and I imagine I'll be fully recovered in no time!  I only wish I'da gone sooner!

My wife recently went through child labor, and a more accurate scale might be:

2 ~ 3 being mild pain, 7 like you wanna die, and 10 like giving birth.

Probably how the scale woulda been conveyed to me had the doctor been a mother!

Hehe, so for a guy.  'So on a scale of 1 - 10, how painful?  2 - 3 banging your head on an open car bonnet, 7 falling out of a window, or 10 like a swift kick in swingers'

Hot packs and those sucky, vibrating 'magic' cups?

Oh so magical!! 

Me and the wife had that done a couple of weeks back.  She had a bad back and I had problems with my shoulder, so we got a kind of couple room for our physical therapy.  Those sucky cups don't attach well to hair, so I always feel the need to apologise for being hairy.  My wife was joking.......or not........ when she said one of the nurses mentioned as she was walking off,  that 'ah, I got the monkey'.   :sad:

3 of my middle students (across 2 schools) applied for a study abroad program in the US for next January.  I was asked to help them practice for the interview portion but nobody knew specifics other than a general idea of some questions to ask, so I just did my best to give them an "American style" interview. 

Turns out it wasn't an in person interview at all, but to a computer program!  So I'm not sure how effective my help was BUT they all got accepted!!   :laugh: :laugh:  I'm so proud of them!

Exploding testicles. In any other sport, that would be against the rules.

You know what's really hilarious is how you can see all over the other guy's face that he knows he done screwed up, but he's just trying to play it off like, "Wtf, man, this is MMA." *toe-bounce, toe-bounce, toe-bounce*

Started in my 2nd travel school today, the grade 3 girls are super enthusiastic to speak in English. During our introduction class today, after everyone done a very brief introduction, they were just firing away questions about things they wanted to know about me. The only boy in the class only got a chance to ask something when they took a small pause (he is really shy, so he didn't mind the girls asking everything).

At the same school, the high level grade 2 girl was too shy to speak at all in my class (it took her a long time, just to tell me her name, with lots of encouragement from the other students), but before I left the school today, I managed to get her to speak a little more.

The boys there aren't very rowdy either, and and the grade 1 boys enjoyed practicing English at lunchtime! They came to find me, to ask me some questions about some conversation worksheet they had downloaded and printed to practice with.

It's a tiny school and feels like it is going to be very enjoyable there. :)

I thought MMA required competitors to wear a cup and compression shorts? Unless he put it on backward or something, I don't see how this could have happened.  :huh:

@Kayos - That's adorable!

I finally made it over to the east coast and it was very lovely. It felt amazing to walk on the soft sand along a quiet beach.

I am too! Watch it all this weekend. Made me sad as every season usually does. I just wish I wouldn't binge shows so much. Waited a long time for the 8th and now I'm done have to wait another year.
