Chriss! :wink:

I'm learning Norwegian because I'm a big fan of the band Ulver and all black metal bands so I want to know what they say in some songs. :D

MichaelNZ: You were born in NZ?! Do you live there now? I went to Queenstown for my honeymoon at the end of '07, and I thought it was one of the most beautiful places! I'd love to go back!!! :wink:
Also, I don't play many video games anymore. I have been feeling like picking up a Final Fantasy again, but they take so much time to get through!!! :P I don't seem to have that patience anymore! :(

Sure was, I've lived in Auckland for the last 10 or so years and Wellington before that but I live in Korea now! Queenstown is an awesome place, I haven't been there in ages! *jelous*

I don't actually own a TV here so I get my video game fix from my NDS. No final fantasy for me :cry: ...

Haha, I see. I know a lot of Italian people do that. Anyway, if you need help with Norwegian, don't hesitate to ask.

Feel free to tell us a bit about yourselves! ^_^

I was a Korean linguist in the US Army back in the 90s. I was stationed at Cp. Humphreys in Anjung-ri, which is by PyeongTaek. I got out of the army in '98 which I now realize was a long time ago.

My current job involves travel and I'm trying to get some Korea trips going.

My wife is Korean American and her parents live with us and help us raise the baby because we are working. I want my baby to learn to speak Korean. I don't watch dramas because screaming ajumas and ajushis does not entertain me. I like funny Korean shows though, but I can't name one because I just watch whatever happens to be on when I turn on the TV. I get some Korean channels with this satelite TV.

I live in San Diego. Its a nice place. We have a little K-Town. We have a restaurant called Soju Town. YOu can't really beat that, can you? The Ajumas at Arirang Restaurant like to play with my baby while we eat. Now, thats good service. The fish guy at the place we used to eat just opened a new restaurant called Dokdo Sushi. But get this- the inside is decorated with Japanese stuff and the fish guy even wears a Japanese costume. I tried to point out the awesome irony in all of this but my in-laws didn't think there was anything odd about it.


Anyways, San Diego is cool. Anybody else live here? My wife and I have been enjoying the audio lessons alot. We wish we could hang out with people like Keith and Hyunwoo and Geong-un and Kyungmi (?) etc etc. but we don't know anybody cool like that.
