What!?! Thanksgiving?

D'oh! Korea jumped so quickly from Halloween to Christmas that I nearly forgot about Thanksgiving! Mmm....turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, Paula Dean's Butter Cake, turkey tacos... I'll just have to eat twice as much next year. Good plan, Annalog. (Sorry. The lack of turkey causes me to talk to myself).

Even though I may have my complaints, I am grateful to spend this year in Korea. Check out the end of the post to see why I am so thankful.

I miss Thanksgiving, but at least the Motherland celebrates my favorite holiday-- Christmas! Time to fill up the Annalog Musicbox (sidebar) with some holiday tunes! Let me know if you have any requests.

In case you're wondering, you can find all sorts of Christmas decorations on the cheap in Namdaemun.

Cyndi's ready to get her Christmas on!

Annalog Top 10: What I'm Most Thankful for in the Motherland...
(in no particular order)

  1. The phone calls, email, and blog comments from friends and family. Happy Belated Thanksgiving, everybody!
  2. My friends & family, who, despite my lack of email or phone calls, know that I am thinking of them and miss them.
  3. My 이모, 이모부, & 엄마, who all learned how to (sort of) use Skype.
  4. My cousin Cyndi, who decided to join me in my year long adventure in the Motherland, even though she is almost a 계란한판.
  5. Cyndi and her employer, for letting me freeload. Yay to rent-free accommodations!
  6. My sister, who will soon send me a mega package filled with all sorts of goodies.
  7. My cousin Daniel, who, despite continual attempts to extort us for money, has not turned Henney into the Humane Society. Or, at least I don't think he has.
  8. My Korean friends, family, and acquaintances, especially Heng, Nani & Thomas, June, Bo, and Cyndi's Busan clan, for making me feel so welcomed in Korea.
  9. The crazy Seoul moms who are a sucker for brand name diplomas and are willing to pay good money for their children's education, even if the teacher has little formal teaching experience and pays no attention to English grammar rules. :)
  10. The OnStyle Network and tudou.com
Hope you have much to be thankful for as well.
Thanks for reading. 감사합니다.
