On Saturday I hung out with my Korean friend Do Young. We went to the National Museum located near my place. I thought it would be a simple subway ride to meet him yet it turned out to be a disaster.........I got lost.........twice!!!! I have been in Korea for over a year now and I still have trouble navigating through some of the busy subway stations. Anyways, half an hour later and a few phone calls to Do Young I managed to make it there. He was all smiles when I arrived. Had that have been him who was late I think it would have been a different of my biggest pet peaves is late people --I can't stand when people are late, it's such a waste of my time.

Anyways, he took all the pictures and then sent them to me. Because I am so slow with computers I could only manage to upload two of the photos (only of me). The first one is turned sideways and I have no clue how to adjust it.

And here I am standing in front of some pottery that was discovered in the first dynasty. I learned a lot about Korea by going to this museum. Do Young directed me through from the start to the finish telling me everything he knew.
After the tour we were both hungry so we headed out for Western food. Do Young is so Westernized I am starting to think that I am more Korean than him. His dad works on the US base so he is always around Western people and he loves the food. Everytime I meet up with him, I know that we won't be eating Korean style.
Do Young even helped me study Korean while we ate. He has agreed to teach me every Saturday afternoon in exchange for lunch. SCORE!!!!!!! He is an excellent tutor and I am so thankful that he is extremely generous......thanks Do Young!!!!
After an afternoon with Do Young my lover came over................and cleaned my bathroom...keke
So my bathroom hasn't been cleaned in over 3 weeks..............gross I know!!! I kept cleaning the other parts of my house but couldn't work up enough energy to tackle the bathroom. Finally Sung Hyun had enough............he slapped on the hot pink rubber gloves and got to work. After 30 minutes of scrubbing my bathroom was sparkling..........thanks Sung Hyun. I got a picture of him in action, although I don't think he's too impressed that I posted it on my site.
Later in the evening we hopped in his truck and went to Ilsan for a nice walk in the park.

Everything was great until we got into a discussion that left him extremely frustrated and me in tears. I ended the night by slamming his truck door and storming up to my room. Now I feel so awful!!!!
Today (Sunday) is our hang-out day..............but I haven't heard from him yet.......we'll have to see how everything unfolds!!!!! ughhhh sometimes I can be such a b*tch

Yo Jenn,

I just got finished replying to your comments on my homepage and then swung by your page... voila, updates! Cool!

Great pics.

Hats off to Sung Hyun for scrubbing your bathroom. Pretty Boy broke my toliet the other day (don't ask... that's a rated R story... hehehe, I'm serious!!!) and although he offers to fix it, he hasn't.

So it's Sunday night now... any news on how this drama is going to end? Was there a big kiss-and-make-up scene or a sweet phone call? I'm curious.

I wouldn't too much though, Sung Hyun knows he has an awesome girl. He's no fool.

I really wish I could get my husband to do that (in the bathroom).

Hope the fight blew over and things are good again between you two.
