When your boyfriend cuts your hair

I don’t know what program I’m supposed to be installing to be able to record a video from my webcam on my computer, so I have resorted to online methods.  Most programs I found don’t seem compatible with Windows 7 anyway. So here’s my attempt at the vlog I wanted to do before. The audio’s a bit harsh, so turn down your volume!

In lieu of a real video blog

I wanted to do a “real” video blog today – you know the type where it’s a webcam shot of someone talking at you? Well, turns out when I upgraded to Windows 7, I lost all the pre-installed programs so now I don’t have anything to record on my webcam with. Until I figure out what software I need or find a different program that can do that for me, you’ll just have to make do with watching me enjoy the kick of this rifle.

A meal at BCD’s

For those of you who don’t have a BCD Tofu House near you, here’s your chance to see what it’s like! Since eating Korean food is practically an art, I thought I’d walk you through the experience…  First off at any Korean restaurant they give you plenty of little appetizer/side dishes.  It ranges from kimchi, a staple, to potato salad to iced pickles.  At BCD’s, the main courses are tofu soup bowls, which you can get with bugolgi and kalbi and other such meats if you desire.  They also start you off with a little fried fish, which I always love.

Right around the time you get your tofu soup, they bring hot stone pots in which the rice was made and scoop it out for you, so moist and fresh and steaming. I love that they throw in a few random peas for you to find.

Then they pour water into the stone pots to soak the rice that got burned into the sides a bit.

Once you get your boiling soup, you must act fast and throw in the egg! I like mine cooked thoroughly, so it’s always a rush for that…

After having some of the soup, it’s time to find the egg! It tends to blend in with the tofu, so you might have accidentally ingested it.

If you ever need service, all you have to do is press this button (most people have no clue that it’s a button!) and your table number will show up on the display. A doorbell kind of sound will alert the staff that a table wants attention. No more awkward attempts to get your waiter/waitress’s attention!

And completely irrelevant, but rather amusing was this billboard in their parking lot. Please excuse my over-enthusiasm.

Happy Birthday serenade

For my first ever video, I thought I’d share a happy moment that occurred in my motherland.  🙂

September 9, 2008 was a great day for the guy holding the flag and running around.  He won his race at the Paralympics, on his birthday, and got serenaded by the stadium! He’s blind, so the guy running with him was his running partner. At the Paralympics, blind runners are linked with their partners and have to stay within a few feet of each other, with the actual competitor crossing the finish line just before the spotter. It takes a lot of teamwork to be a blind runner!

And for the race he won, which was a 5000-meter run…
