An American living in Shanghai dropped by today. He's moving to Seoul next month and is trying to get investors for a new business. He'll link up with Western restaurants and provide a delivery service. Awesome idea, given the limited options for food delivery in Korea (Chinese, Korean, fried chicken, pizza, and, sometimes, McDonald's). He's putting together statements of interest to show the investors he's got lined up. If all goes well and he gets the business up and running, then I'll sign...
Ugh. Charlie has been having night anxiety lately, a precursor of dementia in elderly dogs. My wife and I are now taking turns with him on the sofa to keep him calm so the other can get some sleep in the bedroom. My turn tonight. I think we'll need to look into medication.
" Conservatives are operating on the assumption that it’s an irredeemable disaster that they can ride all the way to 2016; but the facts on the ground are getting better by the day, and Obamacare will turn into a Benghazi-type affair where Republicans are screaming about a scandal nobody else cares about. And it’s already starting to happen."
Watching my first Grey Cup game this morning courtesy of Jas Wal. We've got a laptop hooked up to the TV at the shop, streaming from justin.tv. Hamilton vs. Saskatchewan.
The last time I saw Gene Pope, we were running around Henry county with Wayne Everett (Sherrie Everett) after midnight one winter night, entering old abandoned houses looking for ghosts. We didn't find any, but we had a heck of a lot of fun trying. I was happy to reconnect with him on Facebook after all these years and thoroughly enjoyed the long debates we had in private messages and post comments. There was none of that awkwardness you sometimes feel when getting in touch with someone you h...
Every year the Korea Game Developer's Conference is held in November. *Every* year. I attended in 2006, but since then I've been unable to go either because of my schedule or because it was hosted too far away from Seoul. This year, I have a more flexible schedule. So I just visited their site to see when and where it is this year, only to discover that it actually *was* in Seoul this year, at the COEX, but at the end of September! I expect to be grumpy for the next couple of hours at least.
We opened the hot dog shop on Oct 29 last year. One year on, we're still in business. Given the rate that small shops like ours open and close around Seoul, I'll count that as a success no matter what happens over the course of the next year!
We skipped the Disney Lone Ranger movie when it was in the cinema. We've just finished watching it on VOD. I wish we hadn't. As a comedy western, it could have been silly fun. But as a Lone Ranger movie, it's just plain ridiculous.
When you walk by our hot dog shop in the daylight, it's hard to see inside through the windows, but there's a pretty good reflection of yourself. In fact, coming from one direction it's the first reflective surface on the street in which you would have the opportunity to do so (the windows of the little coffee shop further up the street don't have the same reflective quality). So working the day shift as I do, I'm constantly entertained by people examining themselves as they pass by. I have...
