Oh... yay.

I'm off to our company's Foundation Day extravaganza. You can feel my transcendent joy radiating out of your monitor's screen, I'm sure. The event is an enormous, bombastic, bloviating, five-hour waste of time for yours truly, but the upside is that, since I have to be at the ceremony/gala very early in the day (there'll be awards going to people I don't know, plus speeches given by people I don't care about), I get to leave work early. In fact, I plan to leave even earlier by using up my final three comp hours once the ceremony is done. I also get paid today, so this marks the end of the current fiscal month's austerity. I'll take a week to get all spendy and shop for next month's meal plan, then I'll return to the austerity program for the mid-May to mid-June pay period. Once I leave the ceremony, I'll head over to my bank and send another $3000 home to my US account. Sometime this weekend, probably on Saturday, I plan to train over to Yangpyeong to eat some more of that miraculous tangsuyuk, and maybe to do a bit of shopping while I'm in town. I'll spend the rest of the weekend cooking up next month's food (some of it, anyway), and I might go for a longish walk, too.

I can feel it... the joy... the pure, utter bliss! It is washing over me like a rolling tide, filling me with an almost overwhelming sense of peace and contentment. I don't know how I am still able to type this comment, being as overwhelmed as I am! Callooh, callay!
