Does the Paju English Village still have a pub?  I thought someone had said it closed down.  On my one school trip there they just let me go wander.  I wouldn't want to have worked/lived there but they put a lot of bucks into that place.

I saw they had a British Pub Museum. But everything was closed so no idea what that actually means. haha

Also, the campus is the definition of garish. I took so many pics. It's f'in amazing. They have a mock Stonehenge FFS

Also, the campus for Paju Eng Vill is ridiculous.

Haha, yeah -- it was, by far, the largest English village I've ever seen in Korea.

Yeh, the 'pub museum' didn't appear to be open.  My co-teachers thought the whole thing was lovely.  But if you've been abroad and seen the real stuff, the cheap copies like this are not really that interesting.  Like 지중해마을 in Cheonan, which is supposed to look like Santorini in Greece.  Nothing like it.  Terrible rubbish.

We went for coffee in some famous announcers coffee shop.  Hwang Yong In, I think.  He had a ridiculous setup of vinyl and vintage speakers there with a stage where they have jazz and classical performances.  He came over and chatted for a bit.  All very nice.  With modern day MP3s, I made me really miss fingering through cds and vinyl.  I used to love that.  MP3s have lost that fun.

It sounds like Dave Sttepz and CO2 were mere meters apart throughout the day.

They only missed each other cause CO2 was wearing his reflective wrap-around shades so Dave Stepz avoided him  :cheesy:

Went to an English village yesterday with my students.  One of the foreign teachers there was teaching with reflective wrap-around shades on.  Who the hell teaches with shades on?

I was there in 2009 and it wasn't a pub museum, but an actual functioning pub serving food and drinks.

I heard that CO2 is so cool that the shades wear him.  Not sure what that means, but I've written it now, and I'm not going to go back and delete.  So there it is.  Right.

Are you throwing shade? Let me frame it through a lens you can understand, for clarity's sake. We almost made contact, but the optics weren't great. It wasn't an oversight, it was nearsightedness.

In my vision of the garden, even though the irises were abundant and the pupils that I went with were not lazy, I began to wonder.  However, in the cornea of the building I was not blind to the shades on the teacher.

Next to it should be a bigger red button that reads Who The Hell Are These People?

Found out today that last period has been bumped up to end at 3:50 rather than 4:40 and I am pondering sneaking out at 4:00...and when I say sneak, I mean strolling out, all casual like...lol. Would you do it? It was bumped up because the students have to clean the school and classrooms for suneung.

Mindblowing fact: Not only is DeMartino the sock account of CO2, but CO2 is in fact, the sock account of DeMartino.

The local 7/11 has started putting sweetcorn in those hotdogs.  :sad:

Kakao taxi app has been ruined by that new update. Firstly; it won't work without privacy settings turned on (which i never do to save battery and for privacy) and secondly they've made it so the language defaults to the phone operating language which on my phone is English but I prefer to use Korean cos it's more accurate than shitty English.
