Weekend Update

A great start to Saturday begins with not drinking lethal amounts of soju, so today began well. Plenty of sleep, McDonald's for breakfast, and a pretty good Korean lesson. We have these two guys who are a little over-enthusiastic (translation: arrogant dipshits), and when confronted by two very stressed out girls, one of them denied being over-enthusiastic claiming the grammar stuff was new. Well, grammar is only a small portion of the class--maybe he should move up a level. Or two.

Am recognized as one of the better students, though, and a guy I kind of liked a few months back (pre-Albert) asked for my number and to study. Ah the life of the fabulous! I'm pleased to say that none of it is going over my head; I'm not good at it, but I understand the concept and just need to practice. That's a pretty good feeling.

My hair's been whacked off, again, and I think it's even shorter. We'll see what it looks like after the perfectionist touch has been washed out.

After, I found Arthur wandering around downtown, so we meandered uselessly together. It was nice. I had bad manners, though, and I really find it embarrassing. I'm guessing I'll let it go, since I have no other option. Heh. In the future, ask people how they are before pouncing about details with their new job, capice? I think I had twenty questions stored up because I'm eying the position of being his partner teacher, but really. Manners first.

Ended up with a new pair of Converse slip-ons for 23,000 won. ($17?) They're men's, but they're pink, so really...

Kayleigh and I saw Slumdog Millionaire; it was pretty good the second time. I'd rent it if I was out there in America-land and haven't seen it.

That pretty much brings us to present time with an empty new workbook (whee!), a sink full of dishes (aww), and a still-uneaten breakfast sandwich from McD's.

LOL, Manners... at least you weren't tongue-tied, which would have been way more awkward ;)
