Dogs eat free!

Well at least Terry does. Every time we walk past a food cart or a restaurant with their door open, I have to literally drag Terry away! Can’t say I blame him… if people were constantly handing me free food in exchange for wagging my tail and being cute I’d milk that act for all it’s worth. Well at least I know that if we ever get separated he won’t go hungry…

Women of all ages are powerless against Terry's awesome powers of persuasion

My $220 Etch-A-Sketch

Driving MegaTruck around Seoul is a pain in the ass because (a) my excessive subway and taxi use means that I don’t know the streets for shit, and (b) making quick last-second lane changes when you have no rearview is a good way to crash the mobile kitchen.

GPS, of course, is the solution, and the GPS units here make TomTom and Garmin look like garbage! I paid ₩240,000 for what’s probably a semi-low-end device that does real-time turn-by-turn GPS and also streams DMB content. DMB stands for Digital Multimedia Broadcasting… in other words, I can watch TV in the truck while I’m driving, and no that’s not illegal here! At least I don’t think it is. Cab drivers do it all the time. This thing can also play music and videos from the memory card, it has A/V input for the backup camera that I may be investing in, and it even has a built-in calculator.

I have no intention of doing math or watching Korean soap operas on the road, but BHYB has discovered yet another use for my fancy new piece of hardware: scribbling stupid shit for no particular reason.
