Yep, I’m back. It’s been a minute with COVID and the rest of the shit. Here I am with yet another classic tale from Korea. Here’s a clip from a very busy and of course drunken weekend. Enjoy!

Barbie’s Random Weekend Musings
One of the many beautiful things about coming to South Korea was that I got to leave everybody else’s problems at home. Now, don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I don’t love to hear everybody else’s gossip. Au contraire, the only thing that I love talking about more than myself is other people! As you all know, the last year of my life was saturated with an extreme dose of Fuck This, and after a while, everything starts to wear on you a bit. My thought coming over here was that I wouldn’t have to deal with anybody else’s shit for a whole year. Fantastic! So I thought. I somehow failed to realize that to achieve this, I would have to not only avoided making any friends here, but I’d also have to cut off contact with my friends at home. Essentially, I’d have to live in a box. Even I couldn’t pull that off for more than a few days at a time. Who would I have to talk about myself with?
I got some news from back home on Friday afternoon, which resulted in a ridiculous binge of randomness this weekend. Thankfully, nobody died, which is excellent. Now, all I needed to do was to just accept that there is only enough time for people to get their shit together, including myself. That’s the trade-off of being a Fucking Rock Star, apparently. It’s a trade-off that I’m willing to take, but that doesn’t make it any less of a Bag of Suck.
The binge began in Busan, wound its way over to Daegu, then returned to Busan with little left in its legs. All in all, I probably spent 8 hours in my apartment for the entire weekend. There were many bars, there was some BBQ mixed in with some clubs, ping-pong, and a PC Bang somewhere. My greedy ass also managed somehow to consume not 1 but 3 McDonald’s breakfasts in one morning. I ended the weekend by returning to Busan late afternoon on Sunday. I decided to skip having a shower and head into downtown to find my poker-playing friends. Well, that shit was canceled in favor of more drinks and singing rooms. A good time was had by all if I do say so myself. All in all, it was a good weekend.
