Let's not talk nonsense, now. But I am excited to be celebrating my anniversary weekend by bringing it all back home and showing some amazing young ladies around my stomping grounds. Honestly, after basically nothing but Seoul weekends since I've been back, going down to the tiny local and sitting around people watching, saying hello to everyone whose names I can't remember, and having everyone tell me, "Lijuh! Long time, no see!" sounds just about perfect. And I've conned Whiskey into coming all the way out earlier in the day for coffee. I'm like a one-woman Incheon foreigner tourist bureau!
And, as a result of various calamities this week, most of my weekly appointments ended up canceled. Which means that today, on the day normally reserved for all kinds of domestic duties,
- My apartment is clean (save for the rabbit's cage and bathroom)
- My fridge is stocked
- I've got quality coffee in the cupboard
- My sheets are clean and drying
- My laundry is done
Someone needs to sort out the situation with age appropriate, simple books available for second langauge learners. For real. If I could write fiction worth a damn, that would be my next harebrained scheme. Seriously. Just so I wouldn't have to ever make sixteen year old boys sit through reading Amelia Bedelia ever again. Or read about Geronimo the fucking mouse, myself.
If anyone has any suggestions in that vein.... you know what to do.
Also, I just ran into another co in the downstairs office. She said she heard about my "bad news" yesterday. Her advice? "Liz Sem... sometimes there are people like this around us. We must ignore them." Truer words may have never been spoken. Right on, Co.
But yeah. So. What was my point? Oh. Two year anniversary, house in order, free time to myself tonight and a lovely weekend with friends planned. Work was shit this week. But I think I'm going to make it through.
