In addition, my Korean co-worker opened up and told me about the distress that accompanies the daunting task of parleying with nitpicky harpies whose joi de vivre seems to be instilling fear in our laboring souls, making us fearful of being sent to the vicious abattoir for employees--and in Korea, this fear is very much warranted. Anyhow, it was great that she shared this with me...even if it was under duress.
Of course, the fact that it is Friday just makes this day that much sweeter. I mean, it is the end of what is oftimes an abysmal week otherwise. With this unexpected warming, I may even have to make plans to go somewhere new this weekend. :O Your Local Recluse, however, has a party to attend this weekend--a party to which he had thought that he would not have ended up being invited.

More amusing is the fact that my friend Greg caught me in flagrante delicto perusing the album of this beauty, in which there are pictures of him at nearly all angles. ;)
