I've just realized (literally tonight)that I have been in Korea so long that seeing a roll of toilet paper on the dinner table is no big deal.

I've also recently realized that I no longer "have" to have a portion of meat with every meal in order to think I've actually eaten!

I just realized that I've lost a lot of weight since last year because my spring wardrobe needs to be tailored several inches/centimeters.

I just realized that my boss is going bald.

I realized last night that "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" was the best movie I've seen in a long time. Maybe I liked it so much because I used to daydream quite a bit when I was growing up.













Although the story has humorous elements, there is a darker and more significant message underlying the text, leading to a more tragic interpretation of the Mitty character. Even in his heroic daydreams, Mitty does not triumph, several fantasies being interrupted before the final one sees Mitty dying bravely in front of a firing squad. In the brief snatches of reality that punctuate Mitty's fantasies the audience meets well-meaning but insensitive strangers who inadvertently rob Mitty of some of his remaining dignity.


I'm a big fan of....Of Monsters and Men, whose song is used in the Walter Mitty trailer.

Hokie, thanks for that song I/D - I added them to my playlist. Excellent song.

BTW, just found out that when one likes a song on youtube, they can just go to this site, add the link and convert to mp3. Then you can add to your mp3 player.

So easy!
