The pen is mightier

The latest news from my Arabic class is that I got my HIGHEST STEPCOUNT DAY EVER yesterday. Wait, no, that's not related. But I did.

The latest news from my Arabic class is that I have a crush on the "calligraphy professor" who lives in our textbook's accompanying DVDs. He's a scholarly, bespectacled type, who knows how to wield a pen. Ah, how I love a man with stylish writing implements! Yes, I am insane.

As we learn to connect more letters, I am learning more and more words that can be made out of those letters. So now I can invite you to knock on the باب (door) of my دار (house) in the واد (valley) in يابان (Japan), where we will eat تين (figs) and drink نبيذ (wine).

Wow, you're awesome! I think it would be with a ت

Yeah, we haven't really learned when you use one T sound and when you use the other (same with S and Th and D and K and all that). Soon! :)
