Or who knows, I might be seeing temporary tattoos and losing my mind

Walk up, say "I'm from the tattoo verification service.  I need to verify if that is a permanent or temporary tattoo."  Then whip out a soapy washrag and see if you can wipe it off or not. ahahahahah

One of my fond memories from my early days in China was my first non-hello greeting.  She said "Hi there!"

Someone snuck the boats out early and didn't tell me. llllllllll

I also had to sign a waiver.  That's a first.  Turns out there's a huge paranoia about something going wrong after some other province had an issue and drowned 11 dragon boat crew members.

So, anyone not a villager has to sign a waiver (nice to see a special rule applies to more than just me).
For the time being, I'm just a rower.  I may not get a chance to captain this year. ananananan
No one under 18 or over 60 is supposed to be in the boats.  I think this one is already starting to get broken on both ends of the age spectrum.
We've got lifesaver rings in the boats and hanging here and there around the edge of the pond.  I need to find a big, fat laundry marker and start  writing things like SS Minnow and Titanic on these. ahahahahah

Someone's being attentive.  I missed it, but my wife had pics of one of the motor boats collecting a crewmember who went overboard.  He's got a life saver on.  Normally, crew who fall off either swim to shore or get picked up by one of the dragon boats.  Usually, the motorboats are only out on days when their's a parade or formal race and are parked on simple practice days.

Something in the Rain - 밥 잘 사주는 예쁜 누나 - (2018)

Korean dramas are weird, the best description of the genre I ever saw called them "addicting and oddly comforting", which I think is true. This one especially is like that. Western title Something in the Rain, Eastern title "Pretty Noona who buys me food" - a younger man, her best friend's brother, re-enters an older woman's life, and she, who is stuck in a particularly damaging rut, responds to his attention. And then we see what really happens next.

This drama, in my opinion, is excellent, but according to reviews it confounds audiences. It seems like the candy-sweet and joyful romance elements of the first half gave audiences the impression - me too - that we were watching one of those eventually idealised romance stories, but it turns out those elements were real - that is, they were being shown as genuine experiences, real people "in love", and we eventually had to start seeing the next part, as their real characters really dictate their actions.

In idealised romance, it is "romance" that dictates the characters actions. In this drama, it seems more like the characters are being realised. It's a challenging balance, a romance story but honoring true character. As infuriating as some choices in the story were, I couldn't help but respect them because they were the creations of so seemingly real characters.

Having a hard time explaining, so, capsule review: "my heart was warmed in the first half, I yelled at the screen often during the second half, I think the whole thing was worth it, even if it was often quite easy to drift off thinking of other things during the long takes were no one says anything."

It's great. Watch it. You'll get angry

Up until 3 weeks ago, the pond was drained for maintenance.  If the rains hadn't come, we would have been dragging the boats. ahahahahah
