Drunk Sign Language

On another seemingly normal day I ran into a new friend…sort of…well, a random stranger who had a rather urgent message for me in an unknown version of sign language. I have actually no idea what was going on – but it takes all sorts to make this weird and wonderful world, right? Still haven’t got theContinue reading “Drunk Sign Language”

Stop Thief!

I danced a lot on Saturday night…like A LOT, A LOT! It had been quite some time since I had “went out” in Korea, so I guess that I had just stored all of this boogie energy up, and was releasing it all over the sticky dancefloors of Seoul!

I’m Kim Yuna!

The kids always ask me what my Korean name is – and so I always wind them up by saying it’s Olympic gold medalist “Kim Yuna”…they get freaked out, and I act all surprised as to what the problem is… “WHY?! Huh?! What do you mean?! My name is Kim Yuna!” …well yeah, suppose I should haveContinue reading “I’m Kim Yuna!”

Suck my Balls.

My new obsession… Bubble tea!  Kind of inappropriate advertising by Korea…but still! Good stuff! http://www.facebook.com/storytimewithjohn
