Some Stuff that Made Me Smile...

The blog's been ranty and gripey lately, and one of my big upcoming posts will be similar... but in order to enjoy life, I encourage anybody who asks to pay attention to the things that made them smile, and talk about them, and draw attention to them - write them down in a notebook, or take pictures of them, or whatever it takes.

So here are some of the things that have made me smile lately:


Including:

the wacky statues near deoksu palace, which, no matter how low you squat, look like you're looking down at them from above. Korean conscripts shoveling snow. Dumb people who don't know how to drive in snow. A bucket of eels. Light shows by Seoul Square, and the cool film ads that play outside the car on the subway between Gwanghwamun Station and Jongno 3-ga station, and the tea blossom that opens. Oh yeah: and tickling Chris in South Korea.
Music from The Eels.

I have long said that, despite the caricature of Koreans as raging nationalists, Koreans spew the harshest, vilest and most uncontrolled criticisms against Korea.

So I think you are slowly getting assimilated. Welcome to the family, brother Robo! Let all that han out! :)
