Mmmm, nothing is more yummy and more representative of Thanksgiving to me than pumpkin pie. So on Saturday afternoon we went to Daegu to Costco to see if they had pumpkin pie. They did. And it was delicious! Oh sweet pumpkin delight! And we decided to have some friends over to share in our delights.It was good, we haven't had people over to our place yet. It's not common in Korea to do social events at ones house, probably because most people live in apartments. Eating out is common, going somewhere, etc... And especially with foreign teachers, most have small small places (with many a horror story of closet sized digs). But we were blessed with a large apartment so we had people over for games and pie. It was nice, we like having people over. And the pie was so big we have leftovers!Oh man, I am going to ENJOY having that again. Amazing what being away from home can make you appreciate.
Also at Costco I became the brand new owner of a 30g iPod. I am mobile again! I have been wanting one for so long and now I can take my beloved tunes with me wherever I go. Long train ride in Vietnam, studying, etc... Thanks wifey for letting me get it!
We also found out that Korea is one of the cheapest places in the world to get glasses. So at Costco Nolana got a new prescription and new lenses for $20. With frame it's like 50-80$ for top of the line ones, less for not name brand ones. So I am contemplating vanity glasses.... might make me look smart. What do you think?
School this week was... long. Just crappy stuff between the Korean teachers and us with them not really communicating and changing stuff on us and overriding us in front of the kids. And we're still preparing for this festival which is a total gong show. This is me playing guitar for a song... except I'm not playing. The guitar can't keep a tune but they want me to pretend to play it so they can have their white teacher up there for all the parents to see. I'm contemplating making a shirt that says "Please don't feed or touch the foreigner" or "I bite". Sometimes feel like a trained monkey at school.But we are just hanging with the kids as we practice which is kinda fun.
