Our principal, in his infinite wisdom, has decreed that all teachers must wear nametags with their picture on it. They're very official looking. I don't get one, of course, but that's fine with me. It seems a little silly to me. The principal retires at the end of the school year, so maybe he's bored? I imagine him sitting in his office that's at least 4 times the size of my apartment brainstorming pointless things like nametags.

I wish people would remember that the past tense of sneak is sneaked, and that there is a difference between a principle and a principal.
The past tense of drag is dragged.

No, I didn't read these on here today.  These were in news articles.

What do you get someone who hates everything and everyone?

korean socks and/or korean t-shirts. i used to have a shirt i bought from one of those ajumma stall in itaewon that said "eat shit and die motherfukcer" on it in big letters. and it had a smiley face on it too. sounds like it would suit your dad  :P

Lol tempting.... My mom would have a hissy fit if it said something like that but i'm not there to witness the fallout so I don't care... I could at least get him some trump socks... That way everyone knows that We shall overcomb...
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.
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.
Hahaha, I quite like that one.  :laugh:

Waygook.org user denimdaze, 'sneaked' is indeed a past tense form of 'sneak,' but 'snuck' is also an acceptable past tense or past participle of 'sneak.'

Is stuck the past tense of steak?

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.


Pics or it ain't real

Hah, sorry, didn't see this earlier. Left it at the school, still trying to figure out how I can get my Ryan to hold it without using tape or anything obvious. I'll take a picture as soon as I can get that to happen because you must see the magic in its entirety.

No one cares.



OMG, this is racially insensitive.



Why do some people think Mexicans have the thinnest skin ever?

To answer your question, yes, it makes them a bigoted fascist. /s

I'm sure there are certain people who would argue that. I believe a lot of feminist make a claim similar to that when transgender people dress in retrograde (from a feminist perspective) outfits and perpetuate a narrow, "sexy" standard of femininity, as was the backlash from many in the feminist community when Bruce-turned-Caitlin Jenner posed for the cover of Vogue for her coming out party.

On the subject of cultural appropriation, just read this from the NYTimes this morning, and it's ridic:
Quote
Katy Perry turned herself into a reality star to promote her new album, “Witness.” Perry put herself on a live-streamed trial for 96 hours, while she sang, cooked, attended a therapy session and cried her way through an interview with the activist DeRay Mckesson, lamenting her history of cultural appropriation (she dressed up as a geisha during a 2013 live performance, among other missteps).

EVERY SINGLE JAPANESE PERSON I MET IN JAPAN LOVED THE FACT THAT I WAS WEARING A KIMONO.

If you're offended by shit like that, ask the source if they give a shit or not. And if they don't, then you can't care either.

A lot of people automatically equate "cultural appropriation" with racism and honestly I think that just detracts from actual racism. Is it sometimes poor taste? Sure. But maybe focus on more serious issues.

Though if someone sees a caucasian person with dreads and thinks "cool!" but then sees the same hairstyle on a black person and thinks "ghetto!" then I think that there are some internal biases someone needs to sort out. I feel like this kind of example is what people are actually mad about or should be rather than trying to own certain styles.
