Did I mention that J’s currently away on vacation? He’s back to his motherland — Hong Kong — and with travel time, he’ll be away for TEN WHOLE DAYS.
This is the longest we’ve been apart since we got married (even when I stayed at my parents’ for 2 months last summer, we still saw each other at least a couple of times a week). And while I’m glad he’s getting some much-deserved rest while catching up with old friends, things haven’t been so peachy for me.
Because as it often is the case in life, getting handed one lemon wasn’t enough — people and circumstances have been hurling them at me left and right and all around.
Needless to say, I’m very stressed. And tired. And PMS’ing. (Awesome timing, right?)
Here are some stuff I’ve come across on the web while nursing my lemon bruises…
Game of Thrones ad in the New York Times
I’m not sure how the subjects and authors of the other articles in the spread feel about the giant shadow of the dragon placed over their material, but you can’t deny that this REALLY grabs the reader’s attention. (And I can’t wait for Season 3 to start!)

50 Years of Bond Tribute Video
As much as I LOVE Daniel Craig as the legendary fictional spy, seeing this montage confirms that yes, Sean Connery was the best James Bond.

We Are the Champions from Pororo’s New Movie
I’ve mentioned Pororo here before, but in case you weren’t aware, “Pororo the Little Penguin” is more popular than Mickey Mouse in Korea. And many of my Korean mommy friends agree: Pororo is like crack to our children.
And he just came out with a new movie.
And here’s the first official music video from that movie.

On a related note, a good way for your kids to get introduced to Pororo (esp if you/they don’t know much Korean) is via the two 뽀로로와 노래해요 (Sing Along with Pororo) DVD’s, which incidentally include some of my favorite Korean songs from childhood!
You can watch songs from the DVD’s on YouTube, but the DVD’s themselves are a gem because they have Korean and English subtitles which really help you learn the songs if you don’t know them. Since they are a bit old, the DVD’s can be a bit difficult (and expensive!) to procure. If you’d like to download your own copies — in addition to the MP3 versions of the songs! — just shoot me a message via my contact form and I’d be happy to help you out!
