...There are primary colours and primary tastes, but did you know that there are also primary odours? About 7 of them, apparently.

Ethereal = dry cleaning fluid??  :laugh: :laugh: Not things that I would have associated together
Lol! I think 'ethereal' refers to ethereal oils, aka essential extract oils.

Also beat someone on my ps4 golf game yday and he threatened to come to England and kill me (erm, only about 5000km out mate). Quite funny when I was laughing at him down the mic and he got more and more angry. First thing I did was google his play station name and the top result is his address, telephone number and email address from an estate agent website. Second thing I did was google mine and nothing came up.

What should I send him for Christmas?

Principal dragged me to a children's choir performance last night. We went to shinsaegae and I awkwardly looked at expensive jackets while she did some Christmas shopping, and then the performance. At first I was really impressed because all the kids are like middle-school aged and they had a really good tonal quality for the classical songs they opened with, ended with frustration at the Kirby Shaw and spirituals because their conductor seems to have no concept of how to create energy in a piece. It was nice enough, though, and one of my students is in the choir, so I'm looking forward to her surprise when I tell her I saw it.

It also made it easier for me to reject her invitation to a children's orchestra performance on Sunday haha

This sounds terrible. Can't you say no? Are you going to recontract? Sunday is your day!

I don't mind terribly because she's just trying really hard to be nice. I'm not recontracting, but it has nothing to do with her.

Could you sense this rage as you walked around the fairways.  Scarn's bantz:  'Nice shot, c*nt'  'is this your first time?'  'Not a chance, bellend!'

If so, send a dead cat in a box.  Or call his phone constantly at night and shout 'fore!'

Haha. Ah, man. If you lot think I'm bad on here you should see me on this game.

Someone leaves a putt short Scarn chimes in "does your husband play golf?"

Someone hits a flag and starts telling a sob story "go and get the violin out son".

The brits can handle it but the Americans can't.

Played a different guy yday and he said he was the greatest player in the universe. This dude genuinely thinks he's the best player in the world. Believe me or not but I am probably one of the top 10 players in the world on Rory Mcilroy pga tour arcade mode on the ps4. Lemoncurdontoast is my unsername if anyone plays it or wants a game.

So he said to me let's play 10 in a row for $100. I was like "I don't have any use for $ but I'll play you for pounds." He was like "let's go".

So we play the first game (it's 9 holes online play max 4 players min 2 obviously whoever has the best score out of us 2 wins the round). He holed out a shot in the first game and beat me by 1. I was like, yeah this guy is good. I said good game.

Next game: I win by 1. (this dude is on the mic giving it how he got so unlucky, no mention of a good game.

Game 3: I win by 3. Absolutely smashed him. (Anything over a 2 shot win is big in 9 holes against good players.)

So I'm up 2-1.

Game 4: His favourite course comes up in the voting page. We play it.

I stick one in on the 2nd, 3rd & 5th to go 3 ahead.

I win by 3. He turns his playstation off as soon as the game finishes.

I'm up 3-1 and the worlds greatest player is no where to be found. Can't wait till I get in from work.

Nothing comes up on mine, but holy smokes my rankings are terrible. I only play online, so I am ranked so low in the games I play...Sad, sad time.

I rewatched Scrubs not too long ago and have been trying to fill the void with another show. Psych is pretty fun.

Have you seen Community? It's pretty great. Season 4 not so much, but 1-3 are wonderful and 5 & 6 are good too.

I haven't seen Scrubs but I've heard nothing but good things. I've been looking for a show to have on while I crochet and embroider, so maybe I'll give it a try.

Stuff like Modern Family and 30 Rock are always fun.

So bored, finished all of the changes to my work for the rest of the semester and I'm basically finished planning my winter camp, so I don't know what to do with myself right now.

Don't get me wrong, I've got things I can do.

Just nothing that I want to do.

I tried to get into Community and I'm gonna give it another shot in the future (cause I hear good things), but I had trouble getting past the first episode. Idk, I took a disliking to the main guy (I do get the impression that he's not meant to necessarily be likable, but still). That being said, I think I'd like pretty much all the other characters just fine and I've seen clips that look funny.

Scrubs is awesome though. To me it's the perfect combination of comedy, quirky, and drama. I got really invested in the characters.

I still remember the first time I heard my school's recorder club all practicing... the theme song from Titanic. Koreans really seem to love that song. I went on a blind date once and the guy took me to a coin noraebang in between dinner and the bar and he sang that song to me.  :undecided:

As for the tv stuff, I love Scrubs! That and Psych are both good choices. Community has always been my favorite of the NBC sitcoms, followed by Parks and Rec. Some other good ones to look up are Fresh off the Boat, Brooklyn Nine Nine, or Bobs Burgers if you're looking for light and short.

Second Bob's Burgers, it's one of my favorite animated shows atm.

Which brings to mind Archer. Love that series, too.

I never watched the final season of Arrested Development. I saw the first episode and just was already so sad for how Michael Bluths life went that I stopped.
