3 things for Thursday Feb 11, 2016

  • Had a jam-packed day as control officer and it went really well.  At least until the TV interviewers sent their cameraman to the wrong place.  And one of our contacts leaked our discussion to the press.
  • Eminent Child and Sibling had a good time just the two of them at Lotte World.
  • The Child is fasting for 30 hours to raise awareness for child hunger.  Good luck!

3 Things for Wednesday February 10, 2016

  • The Sibling and I walked part of the old Castle wall.  Was a nice hike, perfect weather, went through the military zone behind the Blue House.
  • Dongdaemun was closed (still Seollal!) but hit up Insadong to finish the day out.
  • Came home and had a fire with some Indian and watched (part of) The Dark Knight. Was getting late so we punted the rest of the movie till later.

3 Things for Tuesday, February 9,2016

  • We all slept in today, then lounged around the home with the Eminent Child icing her ankle.  Played “Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes” to great fun
  • Palsaek for dinner with snowflake ice for dessert.  Good times.
  • Sustain pedal on the Child’s Yamaha DGX-650 stopped working for some reason.  Troubleshooting via the manual didn’t help.

3 things for Monday February 8, 2016

  • BBQ’ed a butt and ribs today.  Probably the best I’ve made yet.
  • Fun Super Bowl. D. Lee joined us and we had a nice morning just watching the game.
  • Had a good afternoon tasting some Blanton’s Special Reserve in the afternoon, then went to a Lunar New Year party.  Eminent Sibling and Child had good fun too.  Yesterday hit up Gyeongbokgong Palace and Myeoungdong Market but didn’t make it up the cable car to Seoul Tower, the line was just too long.  Also a great day though.

3 things for February 1, 2016

  • I should use my vacuum sealer for leftover BBQ.
  • Sometimes I really hate certain types of people, especially when I override my initial negative read on them and they prove me wrong by being a jerk.
  • The Eminent Canine got into BBQ chicken carcass last night and is sick again. Not as bad as last time and hopefully doesn't need medical intervention. Just hope he didn't scarf chicken bones.

3 things for Sunday January 31, 2016

  • Horace and Pete!
  • The Eminent Canine had a final blood test and is 100% healthy again.

  • The Eminent Canine seems to be all better but still waiting for quality Yorkie Poo to confirm
  • We are on our way to try to find volleyball knee pads!
