So apparently my 6th grader with the pet chicken just lets it chill in the school now. So it was in the 4th grade class when I went to teach today. I was saying hello to the kids and one shouted "Teacher look! It's cute!" So I looked at the chicken and said "hello chicken!"

Well all heck breaks loose, the kids won't accept that chicken is the English word for the food and the animal. Apparently I want to eat their cute little chicken which they're opposed to. It's not my fault that they have a delicious bird as their school pet/mascot...

Ugh, I feel like a pedo today. (LET ME EXPLAIN)

Mt Co-T gives thew students a mission before they can leave class, so today the grade 6 students had to ask me, "Can you come to my XYZ party?"

I would then say "Sure, I can." or "Sorry, I can't."

So, on the way out of class I have a dozen or so 11 year old girls asking me if I can come to their pajama party.

My Thursday school has one 5th grader in the entire school. Due to a presentation on skincare, we had to swap his class to after lunch, but after lunch no one could find him! He's not a jerk, he's actually a really nice student and he likes English so he didn't up and run away, it turns out no one told him so he went to his normal class and half the school spent 20 minutes trying to find him while not bothering to check his classroom...

Oh well, that was a short lesson.

I love B99. That's a good idea, I should show that in class.

Guhh I miss Fukuoka. Top notch pork broth ramen.

My usual home ramen includes minced garlic, green onions, and an egg. Dumplings if i've got em. Sometimes even potatoes and carrots though the former can thicken the broth too much if i'm not diligent.

Had brunch with my 8 year old son last Saturday at the Original Pancake House in Itaewon.

He looks out the window and asks, "Dad, what the heck is an Adult Store?"

Kids are hitting puberty earlier and earlier these days.  A perfect opportunity for 'The Talk'.

^^^hahaha. Is it now time for the talk?


I still have 3 classes left.  :cry: It was supposed to be only 2, but because for whatever reason M1-2 is having class cancelled for next week, they have to have class with me twice today.

Edit: That was fast. My first comment was for JNM, not Baby Aubergine.

That's the best name for a podcast I've ever heard. I kind of want to listen to it, but honestly I can't stand political podcasts. But David Cross is on it. So that makes me want to listen.

I think the main reason it's done great (think it holds some kind of all-time Patreon record, so they will probably never need to advertise) is that it's nothing like a normal political podcast. If you're somewhat leftist and either understand or can tolerate some really obscure Twitter references, I'd say give it a crack

Delicious garbage update:

Lotteria has this burger with bacon and an ENTIRE MOZZARELLA CHEESE PATTY. I can't stay away, I won't stay away.

We were talking about stubbornness at lunch yesterday. It came up that I am stubborn about one thing, being on time for class. It was said that I am very set in my ways in that I want all teachers, as well as students, to be on time if they are coming to my class (as in, when the bell finishes ringing everyone is sitting down and ready).  :laugh: :laugh: My response: "I literally only ask for one thing."

Have you tried it already, or only saw it on the posters? I'm intrigued, but I haven't been to Lotteria since my first year here and it was the only thing in my area.
