Hello hello

Well, it's the start of a new quarter and I'm once again spending much, much time online. I'm taking the final class for my French minor this quarter (After this I'm going to have to start reading French novels or something). It's a "techniques of narration" class. Basically you create a character, come up with a backstory and then write three blog entries for them. The idea is all the characters are living together in the same immeuble in Paris, located in what my friend who just got back from a quarter in Paris informed me is the Jewish gay district, and we're suppose to comment on entries like we're getting to know eachother. So basically it's Role Playing. In French. For credit. I'm pretty excited.

In other news: the "T" key fell of my keyboard, so everytime I want to type a "T" I have to press the little rubber under button thingy. There's really not a more inconvient non-vowel letter that could have this problem. One day I'm going to get me some super glue.

Also, if you have any interest in fuzzy friends of the feline variety, check this out: WTF It's short and pretty much amazing. If you've already seen it watch it again. Pretty much amazing.

Thanks! I'm very excited. I've started making my character. Going to be a mix of French and Japanese. I thought about putting him in a band, but that might just be too obsession-y.

Hey there! Just wanted to throw you some "fellow student" solidarity and tell you that that assignment probably qualifies for some kind of awesomeness award. Seriously, lol.

Hope to see you around lots ;)

Haha I should totally go to my professor's office hours and give her some kudos. Perhaps a nice piece of notebook paper with the words "awesomeness award." This way I can learn French, but it can be fun! Genius!

That is a pretty sweet way to get some credit hours.

That video reminds me of this pic:

Haha yeah I find myself watching it again and again, cause it always makes me happy. The first time I was all, there's no way he can make it. But hen it's like "pop"and his tail's sticking out the top. Ah man. I still can't believe it. He must be very fuzzy and bendable, and yes totally amazing.

The Jewish gay district in Paris? That must be Le Marais. ;) When I lived in Paris one of my friends had an adorable studio apartment in Le Marais. Lots of fun stuff goes down there; your character will have lots to blog about!

Great to hear from you, kiddo! Hope your semester goes well!

Oh that's right, you spent lots of time in Paris! Le Marais... yeah, that's what it was! I knew it was some M business but had forgotten/never known how to spell it. I was thinking about developing a gay character, but I think that might give off some weirdness vibes in a class like setting. Either way it'll be fun times.
