My computer works! Since my last entry I wandered around Pungam some more, slept, cleaned my apartment, watched Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix, and went to Kumho World with Nigel and Zandra. My new power supply/cord cost 30,000 won. It would've cost 12 USD + $35 for S&H... oh well. After that we met up with Megan at TGIF's. I had a chimichanga. It was pretty okay. Dessert though... hoo boy. Brownie Obsession = amaaazing.


In celebration of having a working computer again, I have decided to pick up that meme that has been floating around my friend's list.

Stolen and subverted from lofro, who stole and subverted it from mad_maudlin:

First ten people to comment with a prompt get a short story from me. If you don't have a prompt, I'll write whatever comes to mind. This story will be however long or short as I feel it needs to be. I'll post the stories whenever I damn well feel like it. I don't really care if you repost the meme in your own journal, but it would be nice (for the sake of reciprocity, etc).

2. gaypenguinsrock - werewolves in Korea
3. mad_maudlin - pet peeves
4. evilfishytank - random acts of kindness to a stranger, with a twist at the end
5. kirbylicious - weird things one finds in fandom
6. sittingontrains - New York, 1900

what are the dates you'll be here? I'll also need to know the exact time you're arriving in Gwangju, b/c depending on the day/time I'll have class. plus, depending on the dates I may be able to get a hold of an air mattress... or I'll have to go buy a new set of blankets/etc. I figured out how to say vegetarian, but IDK if you'll be able to find a place that actually does vegetarian foods. (I love soy milk myself, but I haven't seen it sold anywhere.) Asking for coffee is easy, it's just asking for the English with a Korean accent.

I'll plan on coming (arriving) in Seoul airport, February 13th and then I leave the 21st. Don't worry I love bread and I am sure I can find THAT at least everywhere! and fruit of course, and KIMCHI is vegetarian right? lol =D

Oh yes, bread is everywhere! The fruit I've gotten from street vendors have been absolutely incredible - and kimchi is, of course, vegetarian. :P

oh! and I actually have another option for you - a little more expensive than staying with me, but an option nonetheless: you could stay in a love motel. they're really quite cheap, and some are pretty high class (for a place where people cheat on their spouses...)

honestly, I'm not exactly equipped for guests. (I have 1 bed, 1 chair, 1 key, barely any space.)

No worries! I'll look into other places to stay, I think I'll try to stay in a hostel/guesthouse or homestay that's in Seoul actually. So I hope that maybe that first weekend I get there ou can make the trip to visit me where I'd be staying in Seoul, OR i'll try to come visit you in gwanju during the week. Would you be able to find time for that? Anyway don't worry, we'll figure it all out sooner or later!

whew, I'm sorry, I just wasn't able to anticipate the logistics of living/working here until now. Yeah, I think staying in Seoul would be a good idea - more sights, etc than down here. (Though there's plenty to do and see here, of course!) I don't think I'll be able to head up to Seoul over the weekend b/c I'll be going there literally 1 week after you leave, and I'd have to leave on Saturday and come back on Sunday... idk. You coming here might work, though I work afternoons/evenings, so for the most part you'd be on your own except in the mornings... we'll figure this out!
