Una hermana nueva en la casa

It's final: we're going to take the exchange student. We have an interview tomorrow morning to make sure we're not dope fiends or operating a brothel from out of the home or whatever it is they have to screen host families for. All curses aside, I'm happy.

Between all of the visits to France we've made, my sister and I have had five short- or long-term host families. Some were good, some were great and some left me in front of the TV, which was okay because without that, I never would have seen It dubbed into French.

"Ils flottent, Georgie... et ici tu flotteras, toi aussi..."

Hey, don't knock it till you've tried it! All crap movies are infinitely better dubbed into foreign languages and it's not until you get home and watch them again that you realize how crap they really are.

Where was I?

Ah yes, so the first time I went to France, they didn't find me a host family until a couple of days before I left, so I know what she's going through. I've had my share of host families, good and bad, so I'm really hoping this will be a positive experience for her and we won't scare her too much.

I've met your family, and I consider them all to be some pretty dope friends. :)

I was definitely disappointed in the English version of It. ("But the book was SO good!")

I'm pretty sure you guys won't leave her in front of the TV (not ALL the time, anyway) =)

I think I would be frightened to become part of your family... either that or I'd feel right at home...
