the mother in law

of course i cannot say it but jeanie's mom is just awful at taking the baby. when i say i have to go to work she waits till i'm putting on clothes and he starts crying. then she says, nun chi mana (he is so observant), and tries to calm him down. vickie would just play with him and then he was distracted while i got ready and he would kiss me goodbye and i would leave peacefully. he really loved vickie and he doesn't really like the grandma that much. sometimes he does. but sometimes he grabs me and points at her and cries, like he is saying, get this woman out of here. anyway i have to write. i have to send the sacred calendar to mjh and get my second boook out. i have to edit future x and send him that too, and any other compiling i can do. i won 15 20 thousand off dan and dewey last night. it's starting to click. i'm a much better player when i rely on follow and shoot draw sparingly. when using stun, don't use english unless you absolutely have to.

we know each other a short forever now. it's like taking a plant and re-potting it next to another plant in a big vase. at first you're not sure if the plant will thrive or wither away in blight, but little by little the plant sheds some new green growths and under the soil the roots are digging in a twisting. even if sometimes up top the plant is drooping from neglect or getting pulled on by a baby or pissed on by a cat the roots are entwined and they will stay together, solid and connected. we are two plants now. happy birthday!
It was 5 am or something and we couldn't decide if we were getting chicken cass or gamjatang. We settled on chicken cass and one girl was in a bad mood, she always gets maudlin when really drunk. She told one of the guys to shut the fuck up a few times but he didn't and when she went to eat she accidentally spilled soup on him. He took her meal and threw it at her. She took water and poured it on his head.

Ranting and Raving

He's very one-dimensional and judgmental. He acts as if he knows everyone and everyone is so simple except himself. The DJ is fast asleep and the music is looping. I'm working alone, washing dishes, cleaning the drip rails, making ice and re-arranging the freezer. Not sure people know i do this kind of work. They know the drunk me entertaining appearing to not work, all that moxy and nonchalance. I know my partner doesn't realize.  What can you do? He's not the type to give credit nor lead by getting his hands dirty. He just bosses people around.

i had some of the best sex of my life tonight. Met cassia for coffee and she was all tight skirt n big tits. The bartender was alltits defy gravity. The boomtown rat groupie was all eyebrow raise n magic rack. They say she likes it from the back n up the ass. I stopped at cassia's n took of my pants. I slipped her out of the negligee i bought her months before. She was all big suckable tittie. She said hug me. I said ok. I slipped in in her n we fucked deep for hours. She said i dont know what to do. I said this is the best ever.

Only the Ks - the Box with no Apt. # episode

Okay, so i've ordered stuff from the US. It's a box of stuff with my name on it. Granted on the American side, they are a bunch of brain surgeons who left off the building and apartment number. But in their defense it still had the name of the complex and when the delivery asked the guard who i was he didn't know. "He's an idiot," I told the delivery guy. "I'm the only foreigner who lives here. How hard is it top piece together that I am me?" The guy laughed and put the large box in my little shoe-caddy foyer. I thanked him and he waved at Damani before leaving--totally cool with me and the guard. That's the Ks. When one of them fucks up they don't condemn the other.

Only the Ks - episode 2

Some kyopo korean-american from LA, so he says, he also says he was in jail although he's a skinny little twerp of a guy, starts yelling out, "Fuck Chinese, Fuck Americans!'

I tell him to calm the fuck down and that we accept everyone here and that i won't tolerate racism. he asks me and my chinese friends to have a shot with him so he can apologize. As Jun is lifting up his glass, he pushes the glass at him voilently. I grab him and shove him up from his chair. He breaks the Jagermeister bottle, hoping to use it as a weapon but all it does is slip from his hand innocuously and spill on the floor. i push him out to the stairs worried Jun will fucking destroy him, rip him limb from limb. I shove him up the stairs. "Get the fuck out of here before they fucking kill you, you moron!"

He yells back at me, "I don't ever want to come back here. I live in Kangnam."

Why would anyone want him back here. I scratch my head.

Only the Ks

We have this girl at the bar who isn't a small girl and tends to overstay her welcome. She demands that we let her play pool. We were playing five nine and waiting to restart. I was behind the bar taking the time off as a moment to type in some bits of accounting in the computer. She finished and some of her 30-year-old students stepped to the table,  the guys took her game as open table like there wasn't a list of names on the whiteboard and like there weren't people sitting all around holding pool cues and waiting to play.

They told jun to get off. Jun looked at me perplexed so i told the guys that there was a game being played and the table was going to play five nine now. i told him he was welcome to play with us that it's a group came but he snapped his fingers meaning I should rack the balls for him and said something i couldn't hear. i motioned for him to come to me. He came and i explaimed in Korean that there are people who were playing, stopped playing to let Amanda play, and were waiting to play again. He told me to rack the balls for him like I'm his lackey. You don't know who I am, do you? I asked.  I said he was being rude. He went a bit nuts like a baby having his pacifier taken from him. He started to yell shiballoma and pyeongshin and and kaesaeki. They told him I run the place and ran over to calm him down. My friends motioned to me that they would knock him out. Dan kept saying, "Let me cold cock this asshole, I so want to cold cock him." I motioned for them to chill and out and calm down. Surely he'll never know i held his life and well-being on the strings I hold. Who is this guy? i asked now in English and found out that he was a doctor. Oh my god we're all in for it. A doctor can't handle a bit of bad news: being told to wait his turn on the pool table. My dear god! This is why we will profit and those around us will fail. Only in Korea will you find this kind of behavior. Only the Ks.

He called out the cliche three or four bad words in Korean and told me how dare i speak to him in English in Korea (keep in mind he is in my bar cause he's in level five in the HUFS instensive language course across the way and remember i spoke to him in Korean). After he was done i calmly said in English now (remember as well that i'm a total asshole), "dude, i make more money than you, i fuck more girls than you (without paying), i speak more languages than you, and my cock is bigger than yours. What do you have? All you have is a bigger ego than i do. Go home and have your mom who you still live with massage it for you, doctor." I could see from his face that you didn't really comprehend my words but picked up that it was probably and insult. He kept calling me pyeongshin and i got up close and said, "go ahead and punch me, doctor."

He just stood there, scared. His friends escorted him outside all apologizing and telling me they will control him but I should understand Korean culture. So help me. What am I supposed to understand about Korean culture: that it is acceptable to randomly curse out non-Koreans? that they get to do what they want anywhere without thinking of other people? that they must be babied because of their inability to stand on their own two feet?

I'm confused. Hold on, if they need to be treated extra gently in some "special" or "exceptional manner", then who is the pyeonshin here?

Dealing with Koreans often makes me feel like I'm Wolf Larsen and they are Humprey van Weydens before getting toughened up by life at sea. Regardless, the point of telling me i should understand Korean culture more is basically intended to buy a free pass for any behavior at any time. Outside of my bar that is fine with me and not my business, but in my bar they get schooled. i will understand Korean culture, I say, but Korean culture doesn't fly down here. Now get him out. Here rudeness, classism and racist comments are not tolerated.
