Day 304

Thursday | December 27th, 2012


Follow the rules = live longer and get to have more fun. Like last night, I went out, I ate, I drank a fair bit (beer then vodka), I packed a lot of odeng (hotdog of the sea!) soup into my gut while others drank more, then I came home ready to get to work.

This ability gave me a chance to see that nobody wanted my services today, last night. This let me cancel going into work today, which in turn meant Thursday was automatically a much needed pajama day. I like pajama days. They’re best in the winter when it’s cold out and I can stay in my warm house in a warm room doing what I want, or in the case of today, working on work stuff comfortably.

Comfort also usually means skipping meals, showers, and taking pictures and all of those things happened on this day. So a breakdown: the hero image was taken a month or so ago around the corner from the hanok and I’ve been waiting for a nice day to stick it to. The Daily Bullet is probably one of the first of my images to get the Plastic Bullet treatment back on 2011.04.28 and it’s the backside of the old CEC building in Hannamdong (I love the stalagmites on the building, the whole place had such character and I loved my massive office in the basement with 20ft ceilings—it was one of the reasons to work hard). The thumbnail is of the scratch paper on my desk, taken a few days ago when I was having camera issues.

This Old Hanok

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
