Taxi strike!

Apparently there’s a taxi strike today in Seoul. A cursory squiz out the window confirms this. I see no taxis. I read in the news that the taxi drivers are striking for more money, and maybe it’s right—maybe they need the money but really all I care about is how much more peaceful it sounds out there. Now if we could just get all the motorbike/motor scooter food delivery dudes to go on strike too…

who’s bad?

ya know it, ya know

Well, the semester’s almost done at this year’s new job. It’s been pretty cruisey and the students have been mostly pretty good. When I say good I mean well behaved. I actually got a little extra work in the mornings. It’s getting me up early three days a week. That’s a good thing, I think. I can’t complain about it too much while it’s summer. And they pay well.

you know what would be a cool surname to have? Toast. I’ve seen Tost but not Toast. I’m sure it’s out there somewhere.

my name is yum-yum

This is an inspiration: the never seconds blog, written by a Scottish primary school girl. I’m a bit late to the party because it looks like that in less than two months it exploded and has been negotiated out of its bite. If you’re not going to click: a girl took fotos of her school lunches, blogged it. Local council freaked out. The kid used the huge media coverage to raise money for school lunches in Africa. The end.

1. It’s great to see that blogging can still make a difference. I guess you have to be a kid to get noticed though.

2. I didn’t have a fine-tooth comb through to see if was disclosed that Dad was proofreading, but the British Education board should be taking credit for the good grammar and spelling there.

Like 9 cans of shaving powder

Well hell-O and Happy Birthday to me. Thirty-eight and feelin great. It took that to get me back on here and bloggen.

I never really played it but I’ve been checking out the music from grand theft auto 3: san andreas. Say want you want about the GTA series, but the in-game radio stations have all kinds of styles of music, and most are impeccably programmed. I think it was George Clinton that did the funk set, and it included a couple of tracks by the Ohio Players. This one, Funky worm.

@Hipstamatic It’d be nice if the pages were resizable so the type could be read a little easier.

When situations never change,
Tomorrow looks unsure,
don’t leave your destiny to chance,
What are you waiting for?
The time has come to make your break:
Sunny Breaks.
