I’m Thinking Happy Thoughts About Halloween Today

Getting close to the time to go get a pumpkin and make a Jack-o-Lantern (NSFW).

    Pics go past the right hand edge of the page.

    And don’t you dare try to ‘fix’ it.

    If you click on them a second time, the template goes away.

    I fix, I fix!

    …a second time…

    Had forgotten about that. Even better. Another reason to buy the plasma and hook it up to the laptop.

    Now, if she held a couple of pumpkins in front of her breasts, that would be something.

    Two places I’d love to go: Korea and Greece. Here in the states, Greek Delis are amazing. And the Greeks running them are fabulous people. Baklava!

    The Koreans, OTOH, tend to run Korean restaurants – and I must say, Korean is one of the few world foods I don’t like – Kimchi? ACK!!! Or, they run American style delis. Really well.

    Both have traits I admire: Great business sense, an honorable approach to their work, and a desire to make their fortunes and then go home to the land they love.

    Lovely folks. At least, the several dozens of each that I’ve met.

    Japanese and Chinese doo food so much better than Koreans though. Wonder why that is? I could subsist off of nothing but sushi or General Tsos Chicken (Extra hot!). LOL!

    Oh, honorable mention for the Thais: They do flaming hot food better than anyone outside of Texas/New Mexico/California or Old Mexico.

    Ditto re all the food you mentioned, Gus.

    I can’t bring myself to eat Korean food, either. The look, the taste and more often than not, the smell. My classroom/lunchroom at the place I work a couple of days per week positively reeks when it comes time to eat. In fact, many modern Korean apartments actually have two kitchens; a regular main kitchen and then a separate kitchen beyond that, behind a glass door, for the more er, traditional dishes.

    I always head out.

    As for visiting Korea for a holiday, I’d only recommend it as part of a broader itinerary. There are much prettier places in the world and too many Koreans are still a bit insular, ignorant of the rest of the world and at times, just plain unaccommodating. For example, I was stunned, even after all these years, when the bus driver driving me back from the INTERNATIONAL airport to my ‘home town’ pulled the bus over and told me to get out whilst I was talking quietly on my cell phone. I had to hang up immediately. Then he muttered some choice words (couldn’t understand but the tone was unflattering) before resuming his job. However, Jeju Island would have to be part of any tourist visit to Korea.

    Only Korean food I’ve had was in Hong Kong, not sure if they do it different there (you know you cant get Singapore noodles in Singapore?), but it smelled and tasted pretty damn good to me.

    Can you remember what it was? Popping over there next month for the Bledisloe. Galbi, dokgalbi, bulgogi, moksal, and samgyupsal are all OK. Pretty much all the other stuff doesn’t do it for me.

    I spent 6 months in Seoul, Korea a few years ago. I really liked most of the food – especially the 200 different types of kimchi and the Korean BBQ. I don’t eat fish and the 400 types of octupus leave me cold. In those days, dog was more common, and the ginseng chicken soup tasted a bit like mud, but otherwise it was fine.

  15. The Wizard of WOZ Says:

    BingBing – “Popping over there next month for the Bledisloe.”

    Rub it in why dont ya 😛

    Nah cant remember what it was called in Korean, it was a bbq joint though. I had things like deer, ostrich, squid, beef, chicken, pork etc. Damn i’m getting hungry just thinking about it…

Well, SAY something...
