I’m surviving the snow. I’ll admit; it’s not fun walking out in the snow without snowshoes or boots. Plus, the slippery ice are not fun. I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve almost fallen! I’m just glad I haven’t . . . yet. I’ve probably jinxed myself now.
The last few days were pretty interesting. I spent a vast majority of it hanging out with my two friends who are visiting from the states. Thanks to them, I’ve managed to see and do some neat things. Also include being narcissistic and materialistic, and that pretty much defines the last few days!
Wacky Friends Adventure
Yes, these are my two wacky friends. They, er, needed some warm hats, so they opted to buy those. They wanted to get me one, too, but I repeatedly told them that I dislike wearing hats! It’s a good thing I drew the line there. One of them wanted to get me a Pikachu hat. ~_~;;
Anyway, I took a picture of them in front of this gorgeous fountain between Namdaemun Market and Myeong-dong area. Well, I don’t think it’s usually this pretty, but they managed to beautify it for the holidays, or so I assume. Along with the fountain, we saw a Woori Bank decorating their tower with the tiger wishing everyone a Happy New Year, some more pretty lights decorations, and an ice sculpture!
New Glasses for the New Decade
Last week, before New Year’s eve, I bought new glasses for myself. Let’s just say they are quite an adjustment. ~_~;; At least they aren’t bifocals. Anyway, me being very narcissistic, here are some pictures of me modelling the new glasses.
So my first Amazon order (sort of — my replacement copy of The NeverEnding Story DVD came before it) came and these are my gems:
* The Diary of Anne Frank: The Revised Critical Edition (Hardcover)
* Anne Frank: The Book, The Life, The Afterlife (Hardcover)
* The Diary of Anne Frank (As Seen On BBC)
* 12 Angry Men (50th Anniversary Edition)
Yes, I’m a Holocaust aficionado, but I obsess the most on anything dealing with Anne Frank. I do have a copy of her diary, but for the last year or so, I’ve been eyeing that critical edition. It’s pricey, but it will be worth it. However, I wasn’t expecting that book to be a monstrosity in terms of size. It’s a textbook! I feel like I’m back in school. That’s a good feeling.
So far my year is off to an interesting start. I’m happy.
. . . But I should sleep instead of blogging at two in the bloody morning!
