I know it's confusing that I've been writing about a week-long vacation in Iceland for the past month, but I've come to wonder how the hell anyone has time to blog when most of that time is taken up by work and sleep. ...And the other stuff in between, like when some friends and I watched Star Trek last night and afterward hung out at Gahm Mi Oak for almost three hours. Ooopssss.
And remember that in between going to Iceland and sitting on my butt (what I'm doing right now) I also went to Seoul? Yeah. I've been blogging about my trip to Korea on Serious Eats for the past few weeks, building up quite a list of posts in the process. If you don't check out Serious Eats every day (sob), here are some links to make your life easier:

If I've learned anything from writing these posts and trying to grasp at the few memories I can actually extract out of my head, it's that I need to take way more notes. Or at least ones that are more descriptive than, "FAT MANDOO."
