Me and My Hanbok...
It was only a matter of time before I ended up wearing a hanbok and I must say it doesn't look so bad on me. They're so gorgeous and comfortable. That little hat reminded me of a decorated jelly donut that I wanted to eat though. It kept sliding down into my eyes. So yeah, David and I went to a traditional Korean village in Namsan. For $1, we could play dress up like ancient Korean royalty. I know the different outfits mean different things, but I couldn't tell you what this means. Sorry. I have a Korean friend here who just got married and she was wearing this one in a particular Korean ceremony so perhaps this means newlywed. Which is funny....ha. Cuz I'm not.
**this old man was about ready to get off work I think**
We walked around there, played some old Korean games, and watched drum performances. I thoroughly enjoyed it. After that, we went to La Cantina, supposedly the first Italian restaurant in Seoul. And let me say that they must have little old Italian ladies in the back of that kitchen. I've had some "Italian" food here before and it was an embarrassment to all of Italy. Fettucine Alfredo that looked and tasted like old mop water. SHAMEFUL! But this place...a gal could get chubby hanging out there. Great calamari, Caesar salad prepared at the table, good wine, pasta and tiramisu. I thought this tab would easily have topped $100 but the prices were actually reasonable. So, if you're in Seoul, go there. Yes.
Then we went around Myeong-dong for shopping. It's a nice area that I rarely go to though because the crowds are just outta control. But let's talk about my JACKED UP priorities. I'm supposed to be looking for summer clothes and beachy stuff for this trip. Did I buy summer clothes, you ask? HELL NO!! I bought 4 more bags...because I'm a junkie. And this is what addicts do. You can't even go near the stuff really. So when I come home and have to pay $200 because my suitcase is overweight, I won't have anyone to blame but myself...and of course, Korea.
I hung out with Bryan on Friday night which was fun. It's funny because I didn't realize he permed his hair so when he showed up with some tendrils, I was like, "Oh wait a minute..." His stuff was extra bouncy and fluffy. Kinda threw me but anyway, we saw "Wanted". And because I have a slight obsession with Angelina Jolie (and her boo), I loved it. BUT, I was quite pissy that all previews failed to mention this DELICIOUSNESS!!! This man's swexy factor is OFF THE RADAR...and whoever was responsible for advertising and promotion of this film needs to be kicked in the back of the head and thrown from a speeding train. HOW DARE YOU!!!!! I know he's linked to Serena Williams at present, but just know that his love for ME runs very deep. :)
**Thank you, Lord**
This weekend I will have to go see my other husband, Mr. Smith, in Hancock. Smooth shaven? Check. Tight, leather suit? Check. Bulging biceps? Check. Swexiness? CHECK, CHECK, CHECK!!!!!!!!!!!! There's a reason why I am not in Hollywood because I would lose...my...damn...mind...
