Another crappy Thursday

Well, I took the day off work today...not feeling the greatest and I feel I've done more than my fair share of the work for the week -- but that's another story. I still proofread from home although I didn't have to -- takes some of the guilt off.

It's hard to believe it's almost Thursday already! Feels like yesterday was Sunday. Speaking of Sunday, I bought some cool stuff at the stationery shop near Sejin's parents' place. In Korea, they sell these cute little postcards to give your friends. They're only about 10 cents and they're so cute. Here are a couple (yes, I know there are tonnes of spelling errors but that's what makes them cute!):

It's been a very busy week. Deadline is this Friday (wow, that's tomorrow!) for volume three of our books. I'm a little worried, given it'll be the first books published since I became "team leader Sarah," but I think it'll be alright as long I can proofread the design copies.

Sejin should be here soon. We're having pizza for dinner tonight. Maybe not such a good idea since I'll be on a beach in Greece in less than a month, but I can't resist Papa John's -- just can't. Speaking of the husband, here's a good picture of us from last Saturday night at Meg's housewarming party:

What's with Thursdays??

I think all Thursday's suck. Work-wise, today wasn't so bad. I had to proofread some design copies of the books before they're printed. Proofreading is boring but easy. And I got to go home early. And I had Papa John's pizza for lunch, the most delicious pizza ever. Went to Skin Food after work and got a few products to detract from the suck factor. I'm going to watch a movie now to get my mind off of everything. "Happy Feet" might be a good choice. This weekend is going to be another busy one. Meeting a lady from World Vision Korea for lunch on Saturday and Meg's housewarming party is at night. I'll have to run a few errands in between.

The biggest thing happening this weekend is Sejin's interview with Samsung Life Insurance. I'm praying he gets the job and I think he will. It's only one of two interviews though. He'll have the second when we return from our vacation. Speaking of vacation, I still haven't planned anything, we don't have plane tickets and my passport is expired. And we're leaving in about three weeks. Yep.

Oh yes, I taught my first business class last night and it went really well. The ladies are really nice and the hour and a half flew by! I couldn't believe how easy and enjoyable it was! The wheels are turning...

So, it's a movie and knitting for me right now. I'll attach a cute picture, as usual. It's a cute cell phone charm:

Dude, where's my weekend?

I just finished reading "Dude, Where's My Country" by Michael Moore. I've gotta hand it to the guy...he asks questions that need to be asked. Too bad the purpose of his book, his attempt at rallying together the average Americans out there to defeat Bush in 2004, wasn't fulfilled. Guess he had too much faith in the average Joe to put two and two together and see that Bush is an idiot...

Oh yeah, where's my weekend? I really didn't see it. Between book shopping for my new class, a work meeting Saturday afternoon, Stitch n Bitch Sunday afternoon, dinner appointment and editing for WVK Sunday night, I have no idea where the time went and Monday is almost over. It should be over already. I shouldn't complain...I got to spend time with Meaghen and my buddy Tim (we had an amazing Indian dinner last night) and exchanged all my old books for some more at Whatthebook. Things could be much worse.

Haven't had time to plan our Greece/Turkey trip at all (maybe I should be doing that now??). I couldn't find Ephesus on a map if you paid me. I have some serious research to do in the next couple of weeks. Italy is out. No time. We only have a month and I want to see a lot of Greece and Turkey.

Well, bed time! Gratuitous cute picture will follow...

Blah Thursday night

I'm tired. I was supposed to go to a little shindig put on by the Canadian embassy in Seoul tonight, but I was beat. Currently planning a trip to Italy, Greece and Turkey. I've got a lot to do in the next couple of weeks!
Anyway, when you're tired, it helps to look at cute things. Here are some cute cell phone charms:

Tomorrow is Friday! I have a busy weekend ahead of me. I have to shop for materials for a new class, it's my friend Dawn's birthday, Stitch n Bitch on Sunday, meeting my friend Tim for dinner, and somewhere in between I have to start planning my Italy/Greece/Turkey trip, as well as edit World Vision Korea's annual report! I may just be happy for Monday to come around! Nite!

Mon Chi Chi and Chick Corea

It's been quite a weekend! Started Friday night when I met Meg in Itaewon for a pita and then we stopped by Myeong-dong. One of my favourite places in Myeong-dong is "Kosney." It's a sort of hip interior design store with really unique things. There's a huge stationery section in the basement. Anyway, I went in with intentions to keep my money in my wallet, but I saw something -- Mon Chi Chi. I had a Mon ChiChi doll when I was young and a jigsaw puzzle I remember doing many times...So when I saw this pitiful little doll with bunny ears, I had no choice.

So, then it was off the Dongdaemun for night shopping. Meg and I met up with Shelley and we did our thing. I actually didn't buy too much. I think the highlight of the night was Burger King at 1:00 a.m.

Saturday was spent recovering from Friday night (Meg and I were up looking for Mon Chi Chi memorabilia on her computer until 3:00 a.m.).
Sejin and I have had tickets for the Chick Corea/Gary Burton concert for about a month. Finally, Saturday night, I got to listen to some real music. The concert was awesome. I have to say, I was most impressed with Gary Burton. That guy is a machine on the vibraphone! They played a lot of stuff from very old albums. I don't think Sejin was wowed. He's more a classical guy. But I enjoyed it.

So, it was a great weekend!

My first post!

My first post. Who really makes an earnest first post? I just want to see what it looks like! I'll try posting my latest creation to see what happens here....It's a hat I finished a couple weeks ago...It was snowing today in Seoul, so I wore it.
