Monday Musings

Can we discuss the upcoming week's weather forecast?


Sigh.

- Finding it hard to get enough fruits and veggies onto your plate? I love green smoothies and now there's even more buzz about how these super-drinks might be the perfect meal. 

- News from our northern neighbor: Is Kim Jong-Il dying of cancer? Will diplomacy allow Euna Lee and Laura Ling be released before they are sent to labor camps

- I'm not sure who has become less likable, Jon or Kate Gosselin. Just when Kate seems to be taking the fall, Jon and his new girlfriend manage to trump her. And to think, I used to love this show!

- Water, water, everywhere and not a drop to drink? Proof that just one person, with a brilliant idea and good marketing skills, can make a difference

- Newspapers sans crossword puzzles? Say it ain't so!

- If you think shopping at Costco in Rockville is bad on Saturday mornings, imagine the crowds here!

- Anyone else excited for the new Harry Potter movie? I already have tickets for a showing Saturday afternoon. 

- Tina Fey + "Sesame Street" + pirates + promoting children's literacy = amazing.

  2. Hello Erin,

    Sorry to do this in a comment, but I didn't see an email address for you anywhere. I'm a former native English teacher (lived and worked in Korea for two years) who is now a Master's student at the University of Glasgow. I found your blog through the Korean Blog List and the reason I'm writing to you is I'm hoping that you would be willing to complete a questionnaire that forms part of the research I am conducting for my MSc Information Management & Preservation dissertation.

    My dissertation will examine the archival value of blogs, as well as their role (if any) in helping to form and shape a sense of community identity amongst expats living in South Korea. This is being done in order to determine if, and how, they should be preserved.

    You can read more about my project as well as fill out my questionnaire by visiting http://2009msc.wordpress.com Some of the issues I'm examining are what happens to blogs when their authors decide to stop writing or leave Korea and if blog authors would be willing to have their blogs digitally preserved, so I'd be interested to hear your views on these matters. I’d really appreciate it if you could find the time to complete the questionnaire.

    (And, if any of your readers want to complete the questionnaire that would be great too, since I'd love to hear from them as well.)

    Thank you,
    Kim.
