(Voilà le début de la Semaine des Langues chez srah blah blah. Je vois qu'il y a, déjà, beaucoup plus de participants que la dernière fois et je vous remercie! Parmi ces participants: Anyhoo, Armin, christina, Elemmaciltur, in actual fact, J, Jamie, katie, Marisa, patricia, Renee et Stuart) Alors, aujourd'hui on est le 4 juillet, la fête nationale des États-Unis. Notre famille vient de visionner 1776, l'un de nos films préférés, et ce qui est devenu une activité traditionnelle pour fêter le 4 juillet chez nous. L'été dernière j'étais en France et j'ai passé la plupart de notre fête nationale...

Required reading... and viewing

I realized today that there are certain things that should be a prerequisite for anyone hoping to be "in" with srahfamily*. Srahfamily is, of course, the coolest family on earth and everyone wants to be "in" with them. But first you must understand the organizational culture by way of its cultural artifacts!**. This is an attempt to chronicle some of the things that are most often quoted or referred to around here (in some cases I have included a favorite quote because I just can't help myself!): BooksThe Stupids Die ("This isn't heaven - this is Cleveland!")Dave Barry's Book of...

Hey baby, wanna walk in Cupid's grove together? *wink*

Listen, you freaking whores. I grew up watching musicals. Musicals have a lot of sex in them, but like good humour, it appeals to people on different levels. Jokes in Animaniacs were funny on one level to kids and on another to adults. Sex hidden in flowery language is understood by adults and kids just accept the words, sing along, and don't worry about getting it. That's why I didn't realize until about 1999 exactly what Aunt Alicia was training Gigi for. You can't go mindlessly banning one of the best musicals on Earth and the one thing that makes...

I'm obnoxious and disliked

Only a family as dorky as my own could get as excited about the Restored Director's Cut DVD (with reinserted scenes banned by Richard Nixon!!!) of 1776 as other people get about the Star Wars Special Editions. Watching 1776 on video is our Fourth of July tradition, but we bought the DVD this weekend and couldn't wait until Friday. I'm sure we'll watch it again then, and that we'll sing along and recite the entire script, just as we did last night. It may be physically harmful to be as nerdy as we are....

...And an outbreak of the French disease

John Adams: Wake up, Franklin, you're going to New Brunswick! Benjamin Franklin: (Half asleep) Like hell I am. What for? Stephen Hopkins: The whoring and the drinking! (Franklin gets up and walks off) I felt I had to share with you the bit of dialogue that started running through my head as soon as I realized that Harini now lives and studies in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and that New Brunswick is that New Brunswick. Robin, Cheryl and I drove down to Fairfax, Virginia last night and spent the night at Bob's, then the four of us set off this...

'I want to play all the parts, including Mabel'

One of the things that I have found myself missing during my two extended experiences abroad is the ability to kick out the jams and sing. Ha ha, I said "kick out the jams". I am so not cool. As you may already know, I am by no means a singer of any talent whatsoever. The only places I feel comfortable singing are in the car - because I can be in an enclosed space all alone and no one need hear me when I sing at the top of my lungs - and in the privacy of my own...

The Wednesday Whimsy

(I'm so lost. I have no idea what day of the week it is anymore - I had to check and see which daily i did yesterday.) We've all wanted to be in a movie at some point. If you could be any existing or added character in any movie, what would it be? Lina Lamont, I suppose, but Jean Hagen did quite well. See the second question. And um... let's see... adding myself? I would like to be an extra. I would love go around being an extra in movies and not telling anyone and seeing if anyone would...
