Dizzy Said the Girl

(NB:  I can't take full credit for this post's title; back in 1998, the Goo Goo Dolls released a fantastic album called Dizzy Up the Girl.)

The day began well enough. I was greeted with a light snow when I stepped outdoors to begin my commute to BSF. The discussion and lesson were encouraging, and I left feeling uplifted. I then decided to satiate a powerful craving I've had for the past few days:  I broke down and got a hamburger -my first one since I arrived in Korea, which means there'd been a 5 month lapse (a record for this American girl). I'd been curious about checking out Kraze Burger, a local chain with a location in Myeongdong, so that's where I went. Glad I did. My burger came with pulgogi sauce. Expensive, but good. I'll be back.

After lunch, it was time to go to work. Normally the subway rides are non-eventful, but today was different. Maybe due to the snow (?) the driver kept pumping the brakes each time we approached a new station. Fourteen stations later, I felt really woozy when I got off the train. The feeling stayed with me for most of the day, and although there was a brief respite, it's back again. Not sure what's going on...


  1. 5 months without a're the antithesis of "Super Size Me"...maybe there is a movie to be made of this after all!

  2. I'm waiting for someone to notice that the burger came with some pickles -sweet, not dill!- and jalapenos, but no fries :( Sometimes, I really miss In-N-Out!
