When we got to Korea one of the first things I tried was this stuff. This mon' faries is coffee. It comes in wonderful packets that you empty in a cup of your choice and stir. Then you close your eyes and sip slowly all the while strings of coomb-by-ya-m'Lord will waft gently around you. Yep. It is that good. Now that we are back in the States this coffee has become lost to me. The only way I can get it is to order it. The only way I can order anything is to get into our own home...which frankly...at this moment in time I despair of ever happening. sigh. Two more days. Anyway, we were driving back to the dreaded hotel/house thingie when out of the corner of my eyes I spied a Korean grocery store. I knew my coffee was in there and may have started foaming at the mouth and screaming at the poor hubby to turn around for goodness sakes and hook me up to a box!!! It was closed. I may have cried. Today?? OPEN!!! I went in there with my fingers crossed. I hoped the nice lady who owned the store would have it. I gave her my best Onyahasao (hello) and smiled my biggest smile then I got down on both knees and begged her to tell me she had some of this in stock. Yeah, I know, I am hooked and I truly don't care. Guess what??
SHE HAD SOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bought the biggest bag she had and danced out the door. Tomorrow I will be up at the crack of dawn to have me some of that there stuff.
I am so freaken happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you need anything from here...just let me know. We're still here in Seoul now. The commissary here ROCKS! Just let me know whatever you need and I'll get it for you.

First, I would love to know why all these live traffic feeds call me "Coolah" in NSW, which is only about 1000 kms from here!!
But, back to the important stuff-thank goodness you have your coffee because you are being seriously messed with!!! Was shifting, college, etc not enough....but Iraq!! Run girl run!!
love, Tracey

Jen sent me some mocha mix thing from Korea, but it was something different. This stuff probably has too much caffeine for her. Congrats on your great find!

Life is never dull around you and your family, is it?!?!

Say hi to Harold next time you see him/her.

I'm glad you got a taste of your old home for your new home. I hope your husband doesn't have to go to Iraq. Just the thought is so scary.

So, what you are saying, is that you have a dealer now! Has it come to that!
