I rather like sweet potato makgeolli.

Also, if you like sweet potato, might I interest you in a drink of this beverage oft distilled from said vegetable?

On another note, I finally watched "곡성" (The Wailing) last night after nearly a year of anticipation.



God was it terrible. :sad:

Everyone says it's amazing.

I think it's alright.

First half was great. Second half kind of lost the plot and dragged on.

I'm trying to buy some Ken's Ranch Dressing and it is only allowed up to six per order. It's considered a health supplement.

1) No one ever in the history of history has ever thought that.
2) Call a spade, a spade. It's an anti-competition barrier.

Get to school today. None of my textbook CDs or DVDs will work. None of my downloaded textbook resources will work. Check programs. All adobe and Shockwave players, Flash players, GOM and all that shit has been uninstalled. I try and prep my song for grade 3. MS media player is also gone.  I tell my CT that I am not sure why all those programs were removed, but I need them to lesson plan and to actually do my lessons. He walks away shrugging. I ask if I can download Adobe and any of the others that I will need and he says he will need to ask the Principal. What am I missing here? I am clearly missing something. I admit I do not understand technology in Korea. I just don't, from IE to Ahnlab and now this.

I was about to complain about my sulking CT again and how she's being passive aggressive but I read your post and cringed.

LOL, although I do feel your pain too. I am particularly irritated by adults that sulk. It is one of the few times that I will say "oh, just f*%king grow the f*%k up."

To add to my woes of trying to discuss the flash/shock wave issue - I get told that I can't have adobe because we need a licence for it because the computers are networked, if this is true ok, but I am only using it as a end user with it on my C drive not on the network drive??? Please can someone with some kind of technological know-how help me out here.... (oh yeah, but it is on his computer, and the other classroom computer), I checked, so I just really don't understand. I will just work on the other computer for now, even though it means standing.. I guess that is good for my back.

* EDIT No, I am not an idiot. Shockwave player is free. Nothing has changed we don't need a fekking licence. Gaaawwwwwwwwd strooth.

It really does. Share a little bit of your soul and they throw it back at you. Haha.

There was one kid that thought it was funny though and laughed throughout, so I guess there's that.

I'm a bit sick, throat's been killin me since the dustball concert that was PSY at JeonbukDae, and to top it off i blew out my neck while sleeping... Living in the middle of nowhere means no chiropractor nearby to sort out my neck so one of the teachers offered to take me to one of those oriental medicine places. I told her no acupuncture and she just said okay and giggled... I don't trust her and with this slight cold I don't trust myself to not sneeze with a neck full of needles......

Oh and to top it off another teacher said that because I can't move my head side to side, I look like Mr Bean when I turn  :cry:

Apparently one of my travel schools is getting rid of their NET (me) next semester and will be using the NET from the middle school right next to elementary. Okay, fine, I get that they might want to save money or whatever, but no one informed me about it until a random 3rd grade teacher mentioned it in passing to me in the hallway. Come on, Korea, it's not that hard to freaking tell your employee of the past 4 months something like that so I don't find out off-hand in the middle of the day.

And it was my favorite school.

If it's any consolation there are barely any chiropractors anywhere in Korea. Big city or small. It's oriental medicine or nothing.

Fair enough, I know my friend goes to one in Seoul. I know a lot of people think its BS but I always went to one back home. I'd go like once a month, went since I was a kid so the dude cut me a deal so I could afford it through university. I miss being able to get a monthly visit in :C my current state makes me miss it more :C

Got invited to go to a beer festival. I thought "cool! I can try a variety of beer and maybe stumble upon something I've never had before!"

Check out the link and it's a beer festival put on by Hite and that's ALL they will be serving. Wtf? That is not a beer festival, that's a Hite festival.

My buddy and I were biking from the airport to Muuido and we saw signs for "WORLD BEER FESTIVAL/THIS WEEKEND/MUUIDO"

Holy shit! What luck! We didn't even know about it, what fortune!

We get to the beach and there's 3 fridges that you'd find in a self bar. Selection wasn't terrible, but the hype for a World Beer Festival was quickly doused.

You just missed a craft beer festival in Gapyeong. There's a pool party/craft beer event going on sometime in june... i think the 24th? It's by the same people but it doesn't have as many beer vendors. look up Good Times ROK. They do the craft beer festival every year and it's like 10,000won for 3 beer tickets if you get the early-bird. Free to just go to.

My Friday school is literally the worst. The kids don't want to do anything, and my co-teacher does nothing to make sure they do their work. He literally lets them sit around or sleep the whole period if they want. Or if they pay enough attention to play a game, he gives them all the answers. How am I suppose to have any authority if he has no authority? This is the school that makes me count down the days I have left.

Also, the high schoolers are having some kind of fun event going on right outside the English room window complete with yelling, loud music, and a PA system. How the hell am I supposed to keep anyone's attention?  :cry:
