So, when the clock hit 2030 on Thursday all four of us grabbed our bags and got out of CNS as fast as we possibly could. Claire went to go meet her boyfriend and the rest of us headed downtown after meeting up with JD.
The five of us went to our favorite chicken place where we proceeded to mix this awesome pomegranate mixer with soju and eat lots of chicken. JD didn't know any of our drinking games, so he didn't do too well in the beginning. Especially since the Korean numbers don't come very easily to him yet.
|The thing is, Casey knew I was taking a picture...|
I feel that this picture correctly illustrates JD's feelings about the drinking games and my picture taking abilities...
Really though, this was one of our most awesome Chickmek sessions. I only wish Claire and MY had been able to join us. Claire's boyfriend is afraid of speaking English or having her translate, so he never joins us, thus causing her to rarely join us. As for MY, he was in Vietnam working 12 hour days...
On our way to the chicken place we were handed a flyer for a new restaurant with these awesome bunk bed tables. So for our second place we decided to go there. It was really cool, probably the most interesting looking place I've been to in Korea.
Turns out she was thirty-two.
This blew JD's mind. He just couldn't imagine that she was that old. I think part of that is because we get used to judging age by how it shows itself on our own ethnic group. I say this because I've encounter Koreans that don't believe Casey is twenty-nine or that I'm twenty-three.

There we ordered more drinks, as well as more food. At some point Sophie and Jessie left, they were really tired and the rest of us were talking to quickly in English for their tired and tipsy brains to keep up with. The funny thing is though, when Casey and I go out with them they go into Korean when they reach that point and he and I get left out.
|Sophie! To Victory!|
|So enthusiastic here..|
|They look so into it...|
Now, isn't that an epic video? JD wrote about this evening too, but he didn't include the video...I wonder why...Though, it's funny, when I was taking it I thought it sounded awesome.
After we left the 노래방 the three of us went to a self-serve beer restaurant. There the two of them got into a long political discussion and I snapped some pictures before playing on my phone and randomly Facebooking Colleen.
|Stop, stop right there.|
|Casey at the bat!|
|JD at the bat!|
|It's going down!|
|The punching bag punches back|
