One week from the Foreign Service Officers Exam.
Upside? Studying can include watching the Daily show and the Colbert Report.
Downside? Teaching Middle school FT and coming home to study for several hours after.
Nov 5th, Korea time. 9am-12pm. Then I go to the Orange Tree in Itaewon to catch the last of the US election results, live. 🙂

Is it a bad thing when the first thing that pops into my head as I listen to my President’s speech is wondering whether or not he really knows the meaning of the words he just said?

This Sunday morning, I was having a lovely breakfast with a friend of mine, when I chomped down on what felt like a rather large rock. Wondering why there’s a rock in my bacon-cheese toast, I spat it out. Not a rock, my readers, but the filling of my upper molar, with a bit of the tooth too! Oh boy…
Surprisingly, my tooth didn’t really hurt, but was very sensitive to temperature. Still, the missing filling meant that I wouldn’t be able to chew on that side of my mouth when eating, so I went to go get it fixed. Luckily, I knew a professor of Dentistry at Seoul National University’s Medical School, so it was pretty straightforward to go there to get it repaired.
The bad news? It was repairable, but with the amount of tooth lost in that molar, it was highly probable that any filling would loosen and chip away again. This was the second time the filling loosened in this molar. If it happens again, then it’s time for a root canal and crown. Aka – hello, fake tooth.

Have you heard that Palin wants to be on SNL to spoof Tina Fey? Which would be pretty funny, but the funniest thing is that she’s praising Tina Fey for her caricature of her while saying that she hadn’t even heard the SNL spoofs, just only watched her. Link here.
Even better, here’s the SNL proof of the VP debates… I love this!!

Is none other than O’Donnell!!!
“And Mrs Palin is being trained for her debate by Brett O’Donnell, who coaches the debating team at Liberty University, a Christian college in Virginia, so there are unlikely to be any punches thrown at her preparation sessions either. ”
