Thank you all for the references. I now have my list and it will literally be my mission during one of my vacation days.

It's all coming together so well.

I have absolutely no plans for the holiday. Is that good or bad? haha

My Korean friend is coming home after a couple of years in Prague. I'll wait here for him.

I'm using "burrito" as an excuse to travel somewhere. I don't think I have any place to say if a lack of plans is good or bad.

But I'd say going on a Sonny-style bender might be fun.

I used to write poetry on Dave's to kill the occasional boring spell at work. This thread seems like a place to continue.

Weather weather why must you be so stinking hot?
Never ending humid madness leaving my nerves shot.
Yet the school cannot see fit to turn on the aircon.
Approximately two hours twenty until I am gone.

Gone to join the swathes of traffic struggling to find home.
Driving like a complete asshole, as they say, "When in Rome..."
Though I'm not quite so sure the Romans lacked such class
as Koreans driving Equuses (who can kiss my f***ing ass.)

Through the traffic to my couch, bring on a case of beer.
To blot out wretched memories of teaching kiddies dear.
The weekend's come. It's time to rest. I'm going to be OK.
Next week I'm sure things will be better. Denialism, yay!

It's so frustrating to plan for camp, buy the materials, and only one student shows up.   >:(

I didn't put this in the ranting thread because the one who came was good-natured about it, even though she was disappointed that she was the only one.   :smiley:

Looked outside and saw a swarm of dragonflies  :shocked: I'm not about Korean summer.

I rather like the dragonflies.  They're far less common where I'm from.

The mosquito swarms can all die though.

I requested some marshmallows for camp (just 2 or so bags) and ended up with 17  :huh:

At least I can repurpose some for Christmas and maybe even for winter camp, but still:  :huh: :huh: :huh:

They planned a summer camp once, in my hometown
Everybody was in it, from miles around
Out at the playground, some kind of waygook thing
Well I ain't no movie star
But I can get behind anything
Yeah I can get behind anything

Sometimes the faster it gets
The less you need to know
But you gotta remember
The smarter it gets
The further its gonna go
When you plan a camp 
When you plan a camp

to the tune of Blow at High Dough
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky

Was googling how to make a milkshake, and one of the suggestions was "how to make a milkshake without milk." ...What?

For people who are lactose intolerant? The soy and almond milks tend to change the flavour of the shake so maybe people were looking for ways to keep the same taste and texture without using milk.

I suppose. Seems like a milkshake would be a general no-no if you're lactose intolerant, with the ice cream and milk component.

There's always Rice Dream for the ice cream portion of it. Or homemade sorbet, I guess? Would that work for like a fruity (non-milk)shake? Or would you just end up with more of a smoothie in that case?
