Do not do this at home or anywhere for that matter… (on your motorcycle)

This is why I am trying to be careful and you won’t see me doing wheelies:

Brady’s Laws for Understanding of the Young

kidsHomeThis should be mandatory reading for CDI and other English teachers in South Korea.  I found it to be entertaining.  I got this from a book of essays of high schoolers who obtained admissions in the best Universities in the U.S.:

I.  Kids always say it’s theirs when it isn’t (i.e., cookies), and claim it’s not theirs when it is (i.e., a mess).

II. The ability of kids to do as they’re told is inversely proportionate to the number of kids in the group.

III. The worse you feel, the friskier they act. Continue reading

One of the best Groom & Bride speeches I’ve heard

…o.k. it’s the only Bride & Groom speech I’ve heard (I believe) like this, but I recommend everyone who’s as entertaining as my friends Derek and Bonnie to have one at their wedding. These guys rock!

Tough little Korean Kid Rob Cho by Will Ferrell

Actually, Will Ferrell in his typical great impersonation of some random character reminds us how Football coaches appear to everyone.  He preceded Ronnie Lott in the Lott Trophy presentation I think in 2006?  He also mentions there’s another “tough kid”, Rob Cho’s Korean brother “Rick Cho….”  Ha!

I think it’s somehwhere around 1:35 he starts joking about the Cho’s. He of course stick’s with the “cho” theme and starts blurtin out stuff about Na-cho’s which in High School I was made fun of a bit by my debating team members when one of the partners I had at the time was Susie Cho. We were called Nacho by this annoying classmate Marty McGuirk.

It took a little preserverance, I mean perseverance to find this word…

I was about to complement my mom recently in how perseverant she was with our family over the years.  It’s one of the reasons why our family is successful.  Without her perseverance, I definitely wouldn’t have many of the opportunities I have now along with my Dad’s hard work — have never seen someone work harder in my life.  These two are a testament at what two people who were never a match from the beginning and even up until now can do in an English speaking country without strong English skills.

Enjoying smoking…I mean watching “Weeds” (& “Bear hunt) these days…

Save this for later viewing/reading:

weedsThe language, the offbeat content and quotes like this:

“…we’re going to be a family if I have to kill all of you!” by the lead character “Nancy Botwin”  or “Shane goes on a paint rampage.  Get’s suspended.  Two of you ditch school to fuck in my guestroom,” after accidentally walking in on her son & dysfunctional gf are why I’m watching seasons 1 through 4  when I can.  The first episode of Weeds previews enough good stuff including the walking in on her teenage son, blunt racist sarcasm, adultery,  homosexuality and of course the drug dealing perfect suburbia mom who knows how to wield the “f” word better than most gangsters.

My life these days in a sentence: Work, my boys/family, emails, SEO Testing/Experimenting, Facebook, OCW classes when I can, Weeds & a periodic flick or two here and there.

Pretty sad, eh?

cold feet

cold feet

Earlier, this evening, I could barely feel my feet. We were eating in a Pojang Macha or basically an orange tent which houses a small single operating restaurant in Korea. Many of these “street vendor” type of eating establishments serve the most basic of pleasures in Korea like soju, beer and simple food. As a westerner, you might be somewhat disgusted at the hygiene which appears to be low, but in general, most people fail to get sick and these Pojang macha’s are a favorite destination after hours. However, it was really cold tonight and I couldn’t wait to either get inside or go home. Continue reading

Now with the ideal President, how about the ideal cabinet?

Add this blog to your favorites:

We now have possibly the best person we could possibly have in years to lead the U.S. moving forward.  However, Obama can not “change” and improve the country by himself.  How about truly creating the most ideal and bipartisan cabinet in U.S. history? My thoughts:

  • Secretary of State: John McCain (yes, can you believe it?!)
  • Secretary of the Treasury: Warren Buffet
  • Secretary of Defense: Arnold Schwarzenegger (joking – then again…lol)
  • (Co-)Chief(s) of Staff: Oprah Winfrey & Maria Shriver (yes, make them a combo team; then again, not sure if Oprah would play 2nd to anyone)
  • Secretary of Commerce: Bill Gates (yes, we’re talking about Microsoft boy)
  • Secretary of Homeland Security: James Bond (just kidding); unfortunately, I can’t say I would know who the best candidate would be

OK, these are just a few of my recommendations to Obama.  🙂

A funny Korean flick starring pretty Chinese star Qi Shu

This was a funny movie I saw recently. I’ve been in a movie watching mode. Not a bad flick…especially after watching a horrible one last night in the theatres.

The movie stars a very pretty Chinese actress Qi Shu.  It’s called “Jopog Manura 3” in Korean.  It was produced in 2006.  Here’s some more details from IMDB: “When Aryong, the daughter of a triad boss from Hong Kong is accused of killing the boss of a competing triad, she is goes into hiding in Korea. Upon arriving, she is guided by a nimble but loyal Gi-chul and his motley crew, who are assigned to protect her until her return.”

If you’d like to watch the whole thing with a tad bit of transition problems towards the end, click on this link for the playlist on Youtube.

Can you imagine what kind of jokes the U.S. would suffer from if this came true? You never know…it may not be too far from the truth.  Sad, but true…
