In case you were wondering...

... it is possible to eat two pounds of clementines in two days.

... my Grandma is still hanging in there. She's very peaceful and happy, and has been amazing everyone with her attitude towards death.

... the past few days it's been about 55-60° out and gorgeous. Today I could even go out without a coat.

... in French there's no difference between "less than" and "fewer than" so the checkout aisle's grammar is always correct.

... putting the alarm clock on the other side of the room doesn't help much with the snooze button addiction. But is it really necessary to get up at a reasonable hour if you don't have class until the evening? (Yes, it is)

... Route A to the supermarket is eleven steps closer than Route B.

... the French are familiar with the Adams family theme. Verdi, in fact, stole the melody for part of his Requiem, which prompted the bass and tenor sections to sing "Libera me (snap, snap). Libera me (snap snap)."

... that was only funny the first few times.

... chocolate mousse mixed with yoghurt is delicious.

... one of the other sopranos in the UCO choir was a Rotary Youth Exchange student in Macomb the year I went to Russia. Which means that we were at Grand Rapids at the same time. Quelle coïncidence, n'est-ce pas?

... I have tragically lost five electronic chia pets so far this semester. That's worse than usual. You only have to feed them every three days, and somehow I forget.

... I despise doing laundry at the laundromat.

... crêpes with cinnamon sugar inside are delicious.

chia pets. I didn't know those where still around. That's awesome.

PS It may seem like I'm a stalker since I keep leaving posts on your entries, but really I'm just a procrastinator and I think you're funny. The end.

I didn't get the Addams family thing. But I don't think I was supposed to.

Mmm, cinnamon sugar crepes.

I read a quote the other day that reminded me of some of the quotes in your blog:

"A scholar's education is greatly improved by traveling in quest of knowledge." - Ibn Khaldun

The first five seconds should clear things up :)

Ah, yeah, I remember that one, from somewhere, long ago...

Lori said...

Yay, you put my Ibn Khaldun quote on your page! That makes me inordinately happy. ^^

It's an awesome quote. I totally agree with him.
