Why am i teaching?

In Uncategorized on 26.03.2009 at 16:47

So I’m in class and the little ones are taking their test. And all of a sudden, a case of the blasé attacks!

Why am I making them write a conversation between audrey and david the hoff? Why don’t I just copy the test from the book? Or have one test like France?

Oh comps. How I hate how you rule my life… Causing tiny panic attacks and making me re-evaluate my life. One can only hope that all will return to normal next Friday.

Please pray that it does. I know I will.


i learned dirty french words

In hello, Uncategorized, word of the day on 23.03.2009 at 03:03

but i’m not going to post them here.  you’ll just have to coax them out of me… in person.  like a real friend.

i did learn the word for dandelion : un pissenlit.


more importantly i think everyone needs to know about the relevance of the vienna boys choir.  they not only sing in uzbek, bulgarian, german (duh), french, italian, english (with adorable accents), etc. etc. etc., they even dance in leiderhosen all while i clap my little heart out.  but does that make them relevant?  i hear you ask.  well, no, it doesn’t.  but singing my fair lady in german sure does.  and singing rent and ABBA really surely does.  in fact, if anybody is out there that disputes this – then go see them, and if you a) don’t cry during the korean love song and b) don’t adore little austrian boys trying to put some soul into seasons of love, then GO HOME and never speak to me again.

thank you.
