Sadly, I am not welcome in most onsens...tats. I leave tomorrow morning for Tokyo though...lol.
Me? Done.
Shouldn't you be planning your Nippon plan????

Damnit, I didn't even start yet.  Only flights done so far.  Actually, I called my bank to extend my credit card limit by 300 000 won today and they said 'Oh, you can extend it to 9.6 million, if you want'  That is a 4 million increase on my limit now.  Obviously, I said, no thanks.  But how much fun could I have in Kyushu with that 4 million over five days!?!?!!  :evil:  Private, luxury, mountain onsen with those clippy-cloppy wooden shoes?    ;D

i have one class full of really tall boys with big personalities. they seem about a year or two older than the rest of the class. i heard from my CT that they cause their homeroom teacher such a headache because they have so much energy and are so domineering.
but i was actually surprised to hear that, because in our class they are so focused and well behaved. i thought they just happened to all be mild-mannered giants but nope, turns out the biggest and rowdiest boys in the class also happen to have the best English skills, probably top 10 in their grade. Lucky for my CT and I, they put all of their energy into learning English and their class is one of my favorites to teach. kinda funny that they change once they get to their homeroom. usually it's the other way around!

As my British driving licence expires in January next year, I've realised now after checking that I can't renew it.  It was valid for ten years.  But now as I'm not a resident, I can't renew it.  In fact, from checking yesterday, my using it for the last ten years when I'm not resident was illegal too.  :-[  It makes sense, I suppose. I actually felt a little sad yesterday that I couldn't use it anymore.  Now I have to look into getting an international licence from here whenever I go home.  My wife said they are valid for a year.   :sad:

You can get them at your local police station. Not expensive either.

CoTs keep dropping in to give me gifts for different things. They claim it wasn't planned, but I feel like there's a conspiracy afoot, and now I'm all like, "I NEED TO BUY THEM GIFTS, TOOOOOOOO! D8"

One of the gifts was really expensive.  :cry:

Nice! I got some "Chuseok" gifts from the English dept yesterday, too. Socks and a blue edition of 'Go-Stop', which I was assured is very #rare and "famous" lol. As for the socks, they couldn't have come at a better time, actually. Was getting low in the wearable sock department.

And I don't feel too bad for not having any Chuseok gifts for them as I brought in a decent haul of sugary snacks from Costco last week  :azn:

I should go running, but I feel like sitting around playing WoW for hours on end instead. Is it lazy if I adjust my calorie intake so I don't have to exercise?

The logic is sound, but...

When I decide to just be lazy and eat nothing cause 'it'll balance out' it always backfires and I end up starving at like 11:30pm and proceed to eat too muchdelicious junk. I am weak.

Be careful  :police:

Fortunately, I don't have that problem as I don't keep junk food at home and am entirely too lazy to get dressed to walk to a convenience store.

Man, I have the exact opposite problem: I can't adjust my intake (I still eat like a teenager) so I spend way too much time running. Thank jeebus that I have the metabolism of a toaster oven!
Burn calories burn!

A sad story. Here, let me help you out!
