Bon Jovi

Bon Jovi

 

‘Bogan’ is roughly the equivalent of the UK’s ‘Chav’ or ‘White Trash’ in the USA.

I’m not saying the band Bon Jovi is bogan, just that it’s the type of music that often appeals to bogans. My husband knows that as well, which was why he was scaring me like that. He just wanted to get a reaction…. which he did.

Thankfully he is not going to be a bogan any time soon, especially as it’s usually bogans being racist or telling him to “go back to where you came from”.

Moving to Korea

At the moment the plan is to live in Korea for 2 years but that is flexible.  It’s something we’ve been thinking about ever since we started dating because I really want to have this experience, and it will be good for my husband to be near his family. We’ll be staying with them first before finding our own place. Still not sure if we will move somewhere near Seoul or Busan.

We will be blogging full-time, which is hard to explain to some people. A lot of people aren’t that aware of how bloggers make money. Also a lot of people can be quite dismissive about our book deal as well. Oh well, if we’d listened to people in the beginning we’d never have started a blog, but now look how far we’ve come. We’ve got money saved up so we can survive for quite a while as well.

It’s something we’ve really thought about too. In Australia my husband had a pretty easy job with good pay but if he works in Korea for a company he will be working twice as much for only half the pay. He’d be away from me all the time as well even though I’d be in Korea too. If he had to do that we probably wouldn’t be moving to Korea.

Hopefully we’ll have some interesting videos coming up. My husband’s family lives in a very rural area and don’t speak any English. I’ve done about 1 year of Korean study and am constantly hearing Korean, but I’m still very much a beginner. It’s going to be hard for me.

I have a feeling my husband may get some reverse culture shock as well. He has been in Australia for a while. But it’s still all very exciting!

Butt Defensive

Butt Defensive

He said his shorts were too loose and he couldn’t keep them up.

While I was drawing this comic he looked at it and said, “You are drawing too much of my butt!”

I told him I’m drawing exactly how much he had hanging out when this happened. He replied, “Yeah… it’s too much.”

So now he knows what it looked like but at the time he was so defensive of his butt!

The Day of the Doctor

The Day of the Doctor

This was really cute. I won’t say too much because of spoilers but the scene where the 3 of them are together and get their sonic screwdrivers out was what prompted him to run and get his one. He got really immersed in it!

So who watched it?

While Away

While Away

It’s so bad it’s good! In a Boys over Flowers way. Of course my husband has no interest in this drama so I could enjoy it without his criticism while he was away.

I actually think the subplots are more interesting than the main plot and would like to see more of that. I won’t say too much else in case others are planning on watching it and haven’t yet.

No Muse

no muse

Yup, it’s pretty quiet here! He is in Melbourne until Monday. Usually if I don’t have a comic idea I rely on him to either do something funny or remind me of another time where he did something interesting or funny. But he’s not here!

I’m glad he is having fun in Melbourne though. He did a lot of backpacking before he met me and he really loves travelling and meeting new people. But he called me last night and complained about how dirty everyone is in the backpackers he is staying in is! Maybe he has got too used to the comfortable married life?
