I'm just staying home tonight after I get a haircut. Gonna watch the new Psych movie, some corny as hell Hallmark Christmas movie, and munch around. But I can't decide what to treat myself to tonight. I'm thinking just Mom's Touch... don't really feel like chicken or pizza, unless I could find a really good pizza.  :rolleyes:

Also, they invented chicken on pizza. The New York and Chicago crowds were too old school Italian to put chicken on their pizza, but a California chef figured he wasn't bound by the rules of the old school Italian types and started making more of the modern pizzas we see today. The Original BBQ Chicken Pizza.

I do actually like their pizza, I'd never had it before coming to Korea. But unfortunately there isn't one near where I'm at.

Yeah, I think I recall reading about some health issue that popped up; he was supposed to be more involved.  BUT they intend to make more movies :D

Yeah, he'd had a stroke! Glad he could even do the one scene, considering, but still. I love Lassie! But that's good news about the other movies~

Going to Hongcheon tomorrow to help my old mak teachers filters hundreds of litres of Lotus Leaf and Pine Bud Makgeolli. The payment? Craft makgeolli by the litre. It's 미담 brand and the ajumma who makes it is awesome.

BOOM. She sells a litre (of the top layer 청주 with NO sediment/not watered down at all) of it for 40 000 and restos sell it for 65 000.

It'll be a good day tomorrow, friends.

Class is actually pretty diverse. I think my Korean class is actually the most diverse out of all the current classes here (the names/class groupings were all posted the first day). The only true common tongue amongst all of us is the one we're learning, which is interesting.  Otherwise it's sometimes kinda like a big game of telephone except for the one unlucky guy who doesn't know any English/Chinese/Japanese/etc.

Yeah, one of my friends took a Korean class for foreigners a few years ago and the common language among everyone in his class in order to be able to communicate with one another was Korean. My friend was the only native English speaker in his class; everyone else was from Japan, Russia, etc.

Cloudy here today and cold, only 25C. Glad I drove the car to work and not the motorbike. I woulda froze to death. The car makes a good excuse to stop and do some Christmas shopping. Gonna put the tree up tomorrow. Excited!
25C? 2 Celsius? 25 Fahrenheit?

25C = 25 Celsius = c-c-c-c-cold!

Yesterday I saw a sign that said "LIVE BAR". 

From my vantage point, the "R" was partially obscured by another sign, so it looked like an "I". 

Being a (mostly rural) Canadian, I read it as "Live Bait", and thought, "what a strange place to have a bait shop."

My weather app...agrees. lol
Although, it's in Fahrenheit but it said 9 degrees this morning, so a slight improvement.

I'm thinking just Mom's Touch... don't really feel like chicken

Isn't Mom's Touch a chicken place?
You're quite right. In my mind though, fried chicken is different from a chicken burger, so I'm giving myself a pass.

Agreed they're totally different. A chicken burger is a BURGER. Meat between bun easily eaten! Fried chicken is a desperate rummage for the three or four decent pieces amidst an obstacle course of bone and tendon.

Not the same at all, geeze! haha

You just summed up my distaste for fried chicken. HAS to be boneless. It's, like, 2000W more and it's worth it for every...........won involved.

Yeah I do like Korean fried chicken for the most part but boneless is def the way to go. I actually chipped a tooth here on some delivery chicken once! The gf still prefers the bone-in (:wink:) variety though so if we order delivery together it's usually 반/반 time. I'll eat the reg stuff from time to time but I'm just super careful now.
