First: John from Daejeon and I have been having an interesting discussion in my review of the movie "Taken" -- scroll down. I love when readers comment.
Second: buying a new watch is annoying -- my old watch is taking five minute breaks, and the case is starting to rust out. I want a style that goes OK with shorts OR with a tie, because I wear a watch every day, and watches are friggin expensive these days, so I'm not gonna shell out unless I find one I can be excited about wearing every day. I'm pretty particular about everyday accessories. Picky is another word, or a bit of a prima donna.
Finally, best of all: Two of my favourite K-bloggers have a collaboration post up at The Joshing Gnome. Gord Sellar asks The Joshing Gnome a question in the Joshing Gnome's new "Ask Joshing Gnome" series.
The question is:
What do you think it is in Korean culture that makes people say things that are manifestly being demonstrated not to be true? (Like saying your brother-in-law can’t eat fish, while he is eating fish?) This puzzles me to no end.And Joe Mondello answers with style: enough style that he deserves his own post at some time, rather than stuffing a blog review in as a footnote on this dumb post.
