I've been slacking on my blogging
(and so have many of you by the way! What to you expect me to do with so many hours of free time?)
Not much is going on.
I've been pushing myself to finish reading The Count of Monte Cristo
*which I started reading in February*
And trying to get my Christmas shopping done- fail
So, here are 10 things I've learned in the last 3 months
1. I went to buy a drain cover, but I couldn't find any so I asked someone...
"Is it for he-a?" she replied
"OH! Yes, for HAIR"
It's possible to live in the same country and speak the same language,
and still not understand each other
2. My car has a horn and I know how to use it
3. The phrase "I'm going to run to the store really quick"...
what is that like a joke?
4. Every month I go to the bank and get 3 rolls of quarters
5. Whoopie pies are yum, and everywhere
6. Many hard core New Englanders think they are real deal Americans because their ancestors like faught in the Civil War and stuff, and people in Texas are mostly stupid
(which is incurable ya know)
7. Book group just read "Common Ground" by J. Anthony Lukas
and is going to read "Confessions" by Saint Augustine
ya know... just some light reading
8. Nothing about Harvard is cheap...nothing
*Can't I just get a cool sweatshirt for less then $85?*
9. Old man winter knows I'm here from Santa Barbara and is trying to trick me with such lovely December weather...
10. Nothing is pronounced as it is spelled
(i.e. Worcestor = wooster)
