Technically, I don’t think there is a flaw here, as the verb “to do” is being used as an auxiliary, I assume to add emphasis to the main verb… ??? But it’s such awkward phrasing. Oh well, the slice of bacon & cheddar pizza was amazing. I DID enjoy it very much.
So I finally got my mobile phone, yes another iPhone, or as they call it here - 아이폰 (Ah-Eee-Pone). Anyway, none of the local mobile carriers provide unlimited texting plans like they do back home. This has led to the creation of an app of course - KakaoTalk. The great thing about this app is that my family and friends in the States can download it on their smartphones and text with me as well. It is available on both iOS and Android platforms, so if you have an iPhone or Android device, I would love to get an MMS from you. My KakaoTalk user ID is - iamkarl. Hope to hear from you soon!
Cheap alcohol. Cheap alcohol in juice boxes. Cheap alcohol in juice boxes that you can purchase 24 hours a day. Cheap alcohol in juice boxes that you can purchase 24 hours a day while drinking on the street.
Back home I would have never considered buying a pair of Crocs. They’re ugly as sin, and well made of plastic. Plastic shoes?! And yes, they are the target of much public ridicule. Even Bill Maher has made fun of them on his New Rules segment.
But Bill has never lived in Korea during monsoon season, or “Jangma” as it’s locally called. The past few weeks have been a drippy pile of sultry wetness, as the rainy season usually begins in late June. I’m told it will carry on through July and possibly August.
As far as Crocs go, well, when you’re wading in puddles of water (practically) every day, and Koreans don’t make rain boots that fit your GINORMOUS American size 11 feet, those plastic sandals are your only option. They get the job done. So as much as can’t stand to look at them, I’d rather be unfashionable during the rainy season than ruin my favorite pair of sneakers.
Care Package #3 from Aunt Belinda… WOW! So many goodies. Let’s see, a Thunder tee, a pair of Sooner PJ shorts (which I like VERY much), a Sooner paperweight, and lots of goodies made in Oklahoma. Oh, and at my request some taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix. Now I can make salsa chicken!
Thank you so much! I’m having a great time over here. The only bad thing is that I miss my family and friends, and getting mail really does help it seem like you’re just around the corner. I will have yours and grandmother’s packages in the mail in the next week. Love ya!
