I forgot that fathers day is coming up.... Now I need to think of something I can get shipped to my dad..... What do you get someone who hates everything and everyone? Any suggestions? Otherwise he's getting another Marks Work Wearhouse giftcard...

I got my dad an NC Dinos 테임즈 jersey, as he was just recently picked up by our home team, the Milwaukee Brewers. It's great because the teams happen to share similar colors, and it's sure to draw attention when he goes to Miller Park.

Does he like to cook? My step mother has gone gluten-free so I thought they could use a good Korean-style rice cooker at their house. They're incredibly expensive though, so an Instant Pot might make a good gift. Or perhaps a Korean necktie? Too formal?

My dad can't even butter a dang sandwich so cooking things are out of the question. He's into NASCAR so maybe something related.... My friend screwed up his christmas gift (She came to visit and I got him a bunch of food but then she gave his gift to one of my other friends who are most of the food by the time I found out she gave him like a pack of gum and a choco-pie)so I need to get him something good.... Are there any Korean race car things? Maybe get him something super Korean for his car...

Lol tempting.... I might just have to invest in one of those for him...

I was asked for a medical note today because she thought I actually had a heart problem.

When I explained what happened, it was not pretty.

Really wish I'd managed to nab a Nintendo Classic Mini before they sold out. And subsequently got discontinued in less than a year because the Nintendo company's a butt.

Could have used it for part of this year's summer camp. Regrets.

No, I am fukking dense. ㅋㅋ

I decided a while ago to stop lying to people. I'm quite charismatic so it's quite easy for me to do, it's a useful skill, but I don't like using it.

I'll let the chips fall where they may. There's nothing my school can do to me that's worse than the feeling I have right now anyway.

My middle school 1st years at my current school are very particular about teams and seating arrangements. When I tell them to get into two teams (there's 12 of them) they take about 5 minutes to all play 'rock, paper, scissors' to figure out the team leader and pick their team members.  :rolleyes: Just split normally into 2 groups like everyone else. I also witnessed them assigning each other seats at lunch today too.

A student just snuck up behind me while I was sitting at my desk watching YT and suddenly whispered at me "Teacher... why is grammar important?"

Scared the bejeezus out of me.  :cry:

I was teaching the kids how to play "Go Fish" today, and after they put all the cards in the middle I told them to each take 5 cards. They did RPS to decide in what order to take the cards. Ridiculous.

I put a picture up of Kel Mitchel from his role in Good Burger on the screen and one student's immediate reaction before anything else is said is, "That's racist!" with a smile on his face. What's that about??

I remember when I found those in Namdaemun like a week after the election and I couldn't stop laughing. The ajeossi was a bit confused so my bf had to explain why I was laughing at them so much.

Today I told my students that if they sang to me in English, I'd give them candy. No repeat songs allowed. (I had a thing of Icebreaker sours)

Got about 10~12 singers, some of whom sang more than once  8)  :laugh:

A student found a metal spoon under my desk.

It's really fancy. Not your run-of-the-mill Emart spoon.

I asked around. No one seems to want to claim it. Now I'm stuck with this extraordinary spoon that's far too pretty to throw away.

I think I'll let Ryan use it as a wand.

They're so hilarious, I need to get me a pair of Obama socks and wear one on each foot to p!ss off my friend with my clashing :D The only thing that would be better is if they made a Super Trump doll like the Super Obama one I found in Japan. When yu squeezed it t said "yes we can". I want a trump one that says something obscene.

At lunch there was a girl wearing a shirt that said "Bitch please, I'm fabulous" with a picture of Marie from Aristocats. I busted up laughing and my CT was so confused. After I explained it, she called the girl over to explain why she shouldn't wear the shirt. The look on the student's face almost made me bust up again. She literally had no fucks to give about whatever English nonsense was on her shirt.

I found that shirt on gmarket once but decided to get the one with Cinderella and Snow White passed out drunk on a table with booze beside them with the words "real life" on it.
