Accept Mystery!

The blog wars are over. Last night we came back from Seoul to find that I had gained yet another follower! It is official! I am Grand Master Winner In Life. It's a life time appointment. My reign will be benevolent. In response, my competitor called me Edward and went to pout in the corner.

When he was done with his little bitch-fit, we watched A Serious Man. All of you Longheads in Korea must watch that movie if only for the six minutes that the Koreans jump on the scene and tear shit up. It is well worth wading through the rest of the movie to see Clive Park and his father in their moments of Konglish brilliance.

It's funny how you can get used to extremely odd behavior, so much so that you don't even notice it. At some point, it completely stops registering as out of the ordinary. Then you see it in the context of what you once considered normal and the veil is temporarily lifted. For a bright shining moment you see things clearly again!

Whereas before you would have thought, "What is wrong with those Asian people? 'Accept mystery?' What the fuck is that all about?!"

Now the truth jumps out at you, like a swift, index finger to the bum: "OH MY GOD! THAT IS SO FUCKING KOREAN!!"
