Jueves(no way no way no way!)

So today was an experience. I had planned last night to wake up early, and go and work out, but then when I woke up this morning, and checked the weather I re-thought my plan. The second day in a row my bus was being dumb, and I ended up getting to work right at 2. I ran from my bus stop! Let me tell you my blue flats...not running shoes people not running shoes. The first half of work went really good. I did the whole rocking da mic thing again. It was great. I had to record this conversation between four people. Yeah it was pretty sweet. I had no idea I could do so many voices, and then I had to record it all over again because it didn't sound right, and I was laughing, and making weird noises. It was great though. Well we went to dinner at the restaurant where I had the black noodles before. You know the place that they thought I was a freak for needing a fork. I was determined to use my chopsticks the whole time tonight. This time I said that I wanted something different. Well I ended up getting jom boong which is the spicy noodle that I had before. I thought it was weird that I said different, and I got the same thing. It wasn't the same. The fiery hotness, and the ability to almost make me cry was there, but with a little twist. Well the soup looked the same, and I liked it last time so I was okay with getting it again. Well I started moving things around, and dun dun duuunn there it was. The twist. There was squid legs in my jom boong! I normally would have just kept stirring my theory is don't look at it, but I just couldn't help it. It had feelers, and everything! It was just to much for me. I have a strict policy about not eating things that might come back to life as I chew. I kept trying to eat it people I really did, but I just couldn't. Heejung laughed and took it from me. She knew what I was going through she said. The restaurant guy came over to see how I was doing and where I was from, and I don't even think I looked at him because I couldn't take my eyes of the squid legs. Well I did fine for a while until I saw another piece. This one was bigger! I felt like it was staring at me. Lets make a long story short. I found 2 more pieces. I think one was the brain. I didn't eat any of them I kept trying I just couldn't get over it. I just kept thinking finding Nemo for some reason. I have made a valiant effort to try everything that people make me, buy me, or give me, but I just couldn't. The soup just wasn't the same after the 3 pieces of squid though. Sad I know. I did use my chopstick the whole time though! On the way back to the office I saw a live squid in one of the tanks outside of a restaurant, and it made me think about it all over again. I told it through my ESP to live it up while he can because I just saw his future, and it doesn't look so brught. Class was good tonight. We had the conversation class tonight, and it went really well! At one point we talked about using emotion in your voice. I semi made fun of the mono tone voices that they use, and they thought it was hilarious. Who knew? Well I caught the bus on time, and I was so thrilled considering that I was freezing. The sucky part was that when I got up the bus driver hadn't stopped yet, and when he slammed on the breaks I had my hands in my pockets, and couldn't grab onto anything so I did a backwards run to the front of the bus. Everyone saw. I looked stupid. Yet another reason for me to love public transportation. Oh well what can ya do? I now have to go and scrub the maybe squid out of my mouth. Till next time! = )


.....Before things got ugly

Oh Nemo's friend!

.......I still don't know why I looked

oh brother.....

You go girl! I admire your courage to try anything (at least once). You are amazing! I love reading about your journey and experiences. Take Care!

I can't believe you take pictures of your food before you eat it ;) But I guess in this case it was a good thing for story purposes.

Lex, you didn't have to go all the way to Korea to try something new. Just ask mom. She went to Grandpa V's and tried cow intestines and loved them, til she found out what what she was eating (I wasn't going to spoil her fun). Hope your having fun.
Love Dad.
