Thanks JNM. I'm almost more worried about him for my boyfriend's sake than anything else. He'd sell his kidney before giving up this cat. He was the first cat we got together as a couple and unlike our other kitties, we raised him from a kitten.

He just better be okay until I get to see him again!

Most of the teachers are back in today after their vacation so I'm really hoping someone is buying lunch... :azn:

Worked for me and my heroin milkshakes.

It is all starting to make sense to me.

I'm the opposite - I'm hoping no-one buys lunch today.  I made a nice sandwich and I'm happy having the peace and quiet.

Whenever I go to the local Chinese place I tend to order a lot with the full intention of taking home leftovers. They never seem to judge me but sometimes I wonder if the other patrons are giving me side eye lol

Same boy as yesterday was sitting on the stool next to my desk during a break

I had waygook open and he went "oh waygook?? but it's all English! No Korean! I can't read! Impossible for me!"

I was like yeah buddy it's for.... waygooks. Like me. Who speak English. Lol

This went back and forth for a while. I tried to use the opportunity to encourage him to study more English in high school (he's a third grader) but he was like nah I don't like writing

I'm usually the opposite too but the stew I made last night and brought in today just isn't quite doing it for me.

Life Improvement every time I offer to buy it I am told no it's ok. Whether it's because I'm the youngest or the NET I don't know but they keep refusing. Instead I make sure there is a nice cake or PB bread bounty a couple of times a month  :azn:

Spoke too soon.  Looks like I am having lunch with the others.  Sigh.  I hope it's good.

That's cute. Sounds like he likes you. I love students that are curious and interested in interacting outside of just greeting.

I have some students see waygook and it's funny hearing them read the name of the website then watching them figure out what it actually means.

Ready for some home cooked dinner and some craft brews tonight. Birthday party tomorrow. 3 weeks left until I make the move to Seoul. Life is on the up and up!

Hell yeah, happy Friday everyone!!

Yeah I'm a bit surprised he's been talking to me so much, maybe he has a crush  :P

He could also be a student of the homeroom teacher who sits next to me but I don't remember what class he's in or what class she's the homeroom teacher of

Emmas28.... you said PB bread.... is that peanut butter bread?!?!
Now that I have the possibility it could be true I am looking it up. Sounds delightful.

I did actually mean Paris Baguette  ;D
But peanut butter bread does sound delicious and I imagine not that difficult to make (plans weekend baking time)

Cleaned my apartment nicely for the people to visit on Saturday, and I really shouldn't have been surprised, but no-one came

I texted my coteacher who set up the appointment about it and she replied "I'll complain about it on Monday!" all cheery-like

 :laugh:

I actually try to hide my browser from my students so that they don't see the waygook tab because I don't want them snooping around on here during their free times, lol.

Soooooo what's everyone doing for these three 1/2 pointless days of school? Trying to gauge how much "try" I have in me.
