Randoms: We be Bloggin...Maybe a Little Too Much
So randoms right...hmm I haven't written a chapter in about two weeks now...well mainly because I detest writing them...it's written in a voice that isn't me so it makes them suffucating and not very fun to write...I still think the stories are good and I want to get them down...I guess I'll just trudge through them...maybe tomorrow I'll rock out the one about Sala and Sang Wan and the bath...yeah that's a good idea...but the reason I haven't written a chapter is because of all these blogs...I just blog and blog all day and then I'm sort of spent...but not really because i'm still writing my short story and I have pumped about 60 poems this week....so I don't know
I have noticed that I have either received or bought 40 cds since I have been here...I like most of them...I'll be putting together my best of list (a lot of best of's) within the next few weeks to send out as my final mailer to the mass list...
Tonight I'm going to play spades for the first time in 10 months...I'm not real excited about it but you gotta take what you can get...I love spades...It's my favorite game in the world...you have a partner and you can out think people as a team and things just come together in the game...oh then why am I not excited about the game tonight...well because they aren't a challenge...I know they don't really know how to play and I'm gonna be teaching more than learning or experiencing...and that's no fun sometimes...but soju, cigarettes, and cards...well it's gonna be ok in a sense..I'll just imagine my card heathens are there in spirit...oh by the way...we will be playing some cards when I get back...all night benders are definately in the works...I LOVE SPADES!
Oh yeah last night I read Socrates' last speach
it was so humble and depressing. What else did I read...oh Booker T Washington was a sell out...umm George Washington warned us all to stay out of international affairs and coined that it would be the downfall of the republic...and Keirkegaard is messing with my head with his imitation of Jesus and admiration of Jesus stuff...he's making me all religous...I don't like it...he does make a great argument for being Lutheran though and some of his political humor and critical advice about books are right on...he's not as intellectual as his name sounds...he uses a lot of slang and idioms in his writings (but that just may be the translation...you never know)...
I talked to Mirel today for the first time since she said she was getting married. She sounds chipper. I'm glad she wrote back to my email. It's nice to have my friend back. Apparently she is totally domesticated now.
What else what else...I took a whole bunch of pictures today when i got to work. I would just call people's names like I wanted to talk to them and when they would turn around I would just snap the shot. They weren't that happy with me as Koreans always love to be beautiful for everyone and especially a camera. But the reason I took that approach was to see how their faces looked when they knew I was calling them to turn around...I'm curious to see how each one approach my beckoning...hmm...well that's all...hahahahahaha Tim
I win! One to nothing I win...woohoo...
Cheers! I'm gonna try to write a topic a little later!
