Update

I haven't written for a while. I know I don't have many readers anyway, so I have low motivation. I haven't had too much time to really work on my blog and make it pretty, etc. I also hate that "Mommy blogging" has taken over blogging. Blogging has become a huge "Look how much better of a mother and wife I am than YOU!" thing. Since I think that is boring, I guess I won't earn followers in my demographic. I HAVE thought about doing a parody of one though.

I just haven't had time since our move to our new house. Moving is hell! I remember the old days of borrowing my parents' van to move my entire apartment to another. Moving was so easy back then. Now with four kids moving is a huge hassle. I hope we don't have to do it again for a while.

I also have been dealing with a lot of pain. I have a complex ovarian cyst that hurts so bad I feel like I am giving birth. Because of the pain I am limited on what I can do. I feel sick and nauseous everyday, all day. I go back to the doctor next week for some more tests. The doctors hope it will go away on its own. I still worry and panic about it. Not knowing what is wrong is what is making this difficult.

When I have free time I relax by researching genealogy and watching Korean dramas. I use dramafever.com where they subtitle the K-dramas in English. Warning: Korean dramas are highly addictive!!! Just when you think things are cheesy or too slow, they throw in a new twist. I think American soap operas have forgotten how to do drama effectively. In American soaps, characters jump into bed by the second episode whereas in Korean dramas the couple won't even kiss until the 9th or 10th. It is mindless entertainment, but a fun way to forget pain. I also have great memories of living in Korea. Since I lived in an upper class household, I lived the lifestyle of many of the main characters and ate in the same restaurants, shopped in the same stores. (I was "Gangnam style" 12 years before that song came out!) I was in a relationship, yes, but for some reason I don't remember him much. I just remember the food, cafes, department stores, and the wonderful campus of Yonsei University. Most of all, I remember being young! Only 21 years old! I was skinny in Korea! That is an amazing feat!

Well, that is my life now.

The Genius of the Sheriff of Nottingham

Robin Hood:Prince of Thieves came out in 1991 and starred Kevin Costner. It was a fun interpretation of the Robin Hood story and had great reviews and earned lots of money. It cast the popular Kevin Costner with Morgan Freeman as his wise Obi Wan Kenobi companion. Bryan Adams had a hit song "Everything I Do, I Do For You" that was over played on early nineties radio. As I was always obsessed with Medieval History I fell in love with this movie despite inaccuracies. I was 16 when I first saw it around 1992. The problem with this movie was that I fell in love with the Sheriff of Nottingham, the nasty bad guy and thought Kevin Costner's Robin Hood was a "dork". That is what happens when someone is a bad actor and this movie showed how weak Costner's acting was compared to his supporting cast and his villain, Alan Rickman. Alan Rickman "hammed" it up in this film and the audience could tell he was enjoying his role as the villain. Every line, no m

Merlin and Doctor Who

As many of you know, Doctor Who is my favorite show to watch. I started watching it a couple of years ago when I read an article that said "Weeping Angels" were the scariest monster ever shown on television. So I found the Doctor Who episode "Blink" and tried it out. After that, I got hooked and have converted many to "Whovianism" and now we watch it as a family. I started watching a new British show, Merlin and quickly discovered that many of the actors on Merlin have also been guests on Doctor Who. Here are some fun facts about Merlin actors who made surprise visits on Doctor Who. MERLIN- Colin Morgan- The main character of the show Merlin who plays a gifted young wizard with a great destiny.  He was the snarky teen, Jethro, on the Doctor Who episode, "Midnight" Love the nailpolish GWEYN- Angel Coulby Lady-in-waiting to the Lady Morgana with a great destiny

The Evil Eye

As many of you know, I had a miscarriage last February. After it happened my husband told me that he believed that one of his co-workers gave him the evil eye after he told the person about my pregnancy. Of course, I thought that was silly but thought it interesting that my husband brought up such an old Uzbek superstition.
