An Exercise in Avoidance

8 04 2010

I should be studying for the exam I will be taking on Monday on a subject I should know much about having taught in Korea for 16 months but have discovered I know near nothing when it comes to rules, standards, regulations, etc. with regard to ESL teaching in the United States which is why I am studying and oh, lawd.

So instead I am finally writing a new post after several weeks of working, showering, studying, eating, and sleeping, repeat.  I went to a roller derby match with a friend a while back, and below are pictures.  Please note that my preferred team is kicking ass.  Please also note that before that evening, I had no preferred team whatsoever.  Winners are drawn to other winners, I suppose….

Also, there are some pictures of an Adventure With Stuffies, taken several months ago at my BF’s house in Carbondale, Colorado.  Just thought I’d put them out there so that everyone reading this can understand  just how cute my life is sometimes.

Also, a picture taken in February of the unprecedented snowfall.  The town was near incapacitated.

And finally, a tune.

Soju Pillow

20 06 2009

Last night we were hanging out getting ready to watch what turned out to be a pretty bad movie when we heard someone singing outside in the street. Public singing is a lot more common than you might think here, but it went on for a while, so we took a peek out the window to see the singer in action. It was a very happy man sitting out on a stoop, enjoying the pleasant night air. He seemed to be a little tired, though. By the time we got our camera, he had cozied up with his soju pillow and blanket and tucked himself in for the night.

Just taking a little break...

Still there after the movie.

Good thing they sprayed for mosquitoes at least a couple of times this week, or he might have woken up itchy, covered in bumps, and feeling even more miserable than he probably already was.
