Seolnal weather shenanigans.

Well the weather has decided to make a mockery of everyone's already tumultuous Seolnal travel plans and piss down a killer combination of sleet+rain+snow for two days, all of which has been melting and then refreezing in a wickedly slippery combination. Willie and I have opted to head out to Seoul Station a little early today to see if we might make our way onto a (possibly more reliable mode of transportation) train. Standing room only. I'm not really sure what that means, given that I've never taken KTX before, but Willie keeps mentioning cardboard and Kpop, which sounds like a great pretext for some sort of short story (possibly a chapter in a novel), but not really for a vacation. Nonetheless, I'm never one to turn my nose up at adventure. Well, actually, lately I am. But it sounds better than the walking-the-last-five-miles-to-Busan bus adventure, so we'll give it the old college try.

I am disappointed that this means no walnut "cookies" at the rest stop. I suppose I'll get over it, eventually.

Now I've got to scramble to get my ass out of here on time. As a side note, I think I may have at least semi-permanently pissed off JH Unni by canceling on her last night, due to a combination of the afore mentioned weather and sheer antisocial behavior. I'll try to fix it when I get back, I guess.

Oh well. Who really needs more than three friends, anyway?

Yeah, this weather...Friday morning S was driving me to the bus stop, and we slipped on ice and almost hit a taxi and both fell off the scooter, and the scooter skidded off the road on the ice...we're fine, just bruised and really sore. WTF weather! Anyway lesson learned, no motorbiking until that black ice shit clears up. Hope you and Willie are having fun, can't wait to hear about it ^^
