Right now there are 5-6 older Korean men in my apartment. They are doing somehing to my fridge. They tried to explain it to me--first in fast Korean, then in slower Korean, then in some sort of ape-like sign language. I still don't understand. Luckily, they smiled reassuringly and seem to have at least a small knowledge of what they are doing.
OK, now they are pounding. They seem to think that they should remove a section of wall from the apartment. Should I be worried?
They have covered the floor in cardboard. Geez, this might get messy.
Dear Lord! They took a knife to the wall! What the deuce? Mylanta! I hope they clean it up because I don't know if my new Swiffer WetJet can handle a load this large (no, Swiffer is not paying me to advertise).
I would never know if this is legitimate or not. I'll just have to trust and hope I'm not getting an accidental window or something. Yikes.


  1. Jackie! I'm so glad I found your blog, after scouring your fb page for updates. I thought, 'huh, she's been there for over a week and she has nothing to say?!' And then I saw the link to your blog. I've added it to my favorites :)

  2. oh my! what an adventure... i hope you and your apartment are still standing.. well, I'm not sure what time it is there, so maybe you are sitting or lying down but you know what I mean.. :-) and it's good to "hear" you say Mylanta again.

    Miss you!
