But I don't think it's wrong, gettin' a little revenge in a song.

Today Paul took me to get my bank account and debit card. It didn't take long at all, but I had to sign my name approximately 95 times. Now I just need money to put in said account. Two days till payday... Oh, and he's definitely okay with me taking Lorna's apartment. Anyone want to help me move? It'll be on Friday, February 26 around noon. (Hint Hint.)

Nigel observed a few of my classes today. It went well enough I suppose. Actually, I don't know how it really went. He didn't tell me, "You are a failure at teaching, begone, whitey!" so I'd say that's a pretty good sign. Of course, if Nigel ever said that I'd probably laugh in his face (and then go home and weep, slit my wrists, drink five bottles of soju, etc).

Mr. Park, the owner of the school, gave all of the teachers presents for Lunar New Year (Seollal). I suspect I'll be giving most of it away. Megan, Zandra, do either of you want any of it? I think I'll probably keep the dishwashing liquid, even though I just bought a new bottle last week. sigh.

Russia probably isn't going to happen - too expensive and complicated for a 4 day weekend. Maybe I'll just go to some exotic beach somewhere and spend a few days lazing around. Maybe Thailand. Or, hell, I could save some money and just go to Jeju. That sounds nice.

That would have been hilarious if he would have actually called you whitey. Haha such a funny word.
Dishwashing liquid as a present? INSANE

it would've been especially hilarious, considering how Nigel's whiter than I am...

not just dishwashing liquid, but 4 different types of toothpaste... a variety of nasty soaps (flowery smelling shit that bothers my allergies)... a bunch of shampoo. typical toiletries, for the most part.

I dream of the day when my decisions are 'Thailand or Jeju?'

Something I suspect you'll appreciate - I've watched six seasons of Entourage in the last eight or so days. Fucking fantastic show.

The second part of that comment was included to show you how busy my days are lately with decision-making and fabulous vacationing.

I haven't seen Entourage before... maybe I'll watch it? If I ever find the time. sigh

Yay, payday!!! I have yet to see our New Year's gifts, but I'm excited there is dish soap. Sounds like the gift is better than a package of tuna.

I think I would've preferred tuna.

If you want any extra toothpaste, soap, shampoo, or whatever, let me know!

Oh! I see how there's a whole lot of smelly soap and stuff...if your not going to use the soap or shampoo I can probably find a use for it.

hey - I'm going to be in Seoul on the 18th, but I don't know where, for how long, or when (I have a teaching seminar to go to - rumor has it I'll be taking a train up that morning, attending the seminar, and going home straight away). Depending on when the train leaves, I may be able to meet up with you that night. Beyond that I really don't want to go back up to Seoul - the trip is just too time-consuming to do twice in a week! I'll send you my number on Facebook, hopefully we can get together at some point...
