The monster that would drag me to Perdition

I'm a mayo sniffer. Bet you didn't even know that was a job! Ever since we bailed on Korea I've been working temp jobs and this was my latest. I'm learning real skills that I can apply to the rest of my life... sniff the seal to see if you can smell mayo. If you can't, put on a new lid and grab another bottle. Seriously, the only thing keep me sane the past 3 days was reading the Count of Monte Cristo on my iphone. (Title reference) Which has been a good read. I highly recommend. But I'll never go back to anything E.D. Smith. You shouldn't either. Terrible, terrible place to work.

On another note - Since September it's just gotten colder and colder. There's less daylight now, I've noticed too. This can only mean one thing - the sun is going out. In a few more months the Earth will be a dark and lifeless ball of ice. Dad says the sun isn't going out. He says it's colder cause the Earths orbit is taking us further away from the sun. He says winter will be here soon.
Isn't it sad how some people's grip on their lives is so precarious that they'll embrace any preposterous delusion rather than face an occasional bleak truth?

(The different colours have been my attempt to actually get all my text to show. The old blog is being difficult for some reason. But i wanna smash it cause it's gay. But I won't. I'll just call it homophobic names because a little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day)


Wants to see how long the Ollie poo will remain on the carpet before it is cleaned up. So far Ollie has been gone for 30 days.

So I suppose a proper update is in order. The thing is that nothing has happened. So I have wanted to blog for a while, vent the feelings, laugh at the events but there have been no feelings, no events... so that leaves me with nothing.

The Great Unknown

Alright here it is: We are not going to Korea (at least not right now.)
I'd love to leave it at that but I realise that there will be an influx of emails, phone calls, and posts if I do not expand. We have been thinking about it a lot recently and did a little bit of research. The school they wanted to send us to had nothing but bad reviews (poor working conditions, housing conditions, late or no payments, no time off, doubled classroom sizes, no materials etc.) The agency we were going through has not been very forth coming or particularly helpful either. So we have decided that we are tired of putting off real life to wait to go to Korea. As exciting as it would have been, it isn't cool for us right now. Doesn't jive.
On a personal note I am fairly certain that my life is never supposed to be exciting; Japan and now Korea.
