This stack never gets any smaller

Spent the day digitizing my ginormous collection of magazine rips. Watched New Heart while doing so. It’s surprisingly good. I think I just have an odd affinity for medical related dramas. (Hey, I didn’t watch “Code Blue” for nothing.) Ji Sung is surprisingly adorable. And I lub Kim Min-jung.

(Oh yeah, by the by, also minorly relevant: SNSD did the Wonder Girls better than the Wonder Girls can do their own song. See a trend?)
