The Role of Emotion in the Songs of Neil Diamond

I was somewhere in between dream and reality this morning as I tried to wake up. I had been dreaming about editing Mah 501 Group Mate's term paper when my alarm went off. Wow, that's really impressive how he worked this music into his paper, I thought. How did he do that? It's so appropriate for the paper, too. That's pretty interesting. I should have done that. Why didn't I do that? ... ...Waiiiiiit, this is "He Ain't Heavy... He's My Brother. What does that have to do with 504?" Hey, this isn't a 504 paper! I'm in bed! Note...

¡La hora de la siesta!

And now for the resumé of today's Spanish lessons, just because the THOTs seem to be amused by it. I will talk about my lesson with the 1ASMS, because the mendigo cartoon wasn't very interesting and de toutes les façons, Rémy has already read all of the notes I took during the first hour. En mi segunda clase de español del dia, vemos un comic que habla de una familia que ve demasiado television. Una noche, la mujer se despierta a las dos y veinte de la mañana. Mira a su marido, que sigue durmiendo. Se levanta y pone una...

Beurk!

Hoy día en la clase de español hablamos de McDonald's. Mis estudiantes, que son estudiantes de hoteleria, y que deben tener standards, van al McDonald's dos veces por semana. Might as well use my Spanish, or I'm going to keep forgetting it. When Sonia asked the students who enjoyed going to McDonald's, the hand of the petite ricaine was one of the few that wasn't raised. I was afraid during the whole class period that I was going to be asked for the American opinion on McDonald's. In Spanish. I wouldn't say that I don't like fast food - because...

Bamos en Bichy

I suck at Spanish. Random irregular conjugations pop up in my head from time to time, but I can't conjugate a regular -ir verb to save my life. What's more, I am constantly confused by Bs and Vs, which usually sound the same in Spanish. So when Sonia turned to me today and asked me to conjugate the regular verb bibir, I was instantly confused. I didn't need to know the meaning of the verb in order to conjugate it, but it threw me off that she had thrown this odd, unfamiliar word at me. "To drink"? No, that's beber....

¿Hay alguien aquí que hable inglés?

It came up in conversation that I might like to sit in on a class while I am here, as I have nothing better to do. I chose Spanish and sat in on Friday. I learned a lot and I think it would be good for me, but it was frustrating because a) They constructed sentences much better than I can and b) They were interested and participating. There is nothing more frustrating than working with students for hours and getting nothing out of them, then seeing them working well and happily in another subject. This is the lot of...

Queen Alfie I

I've decided my sister is sort of like Queen Elizabeth I. Not that it's a bad thing... Queen Elizabeth had a lot of suitors all would have liked to marry her and take over the kingdom. Elizabeth never married, but didn't discourage the suitors from coming and trying. I have the impression that she didn't want to give up her power, but she liked the attention. Becky has a lot of suitors as well, but they don't want to marry her. They are colleges who want her to attend. She keeps putting off the final decision (we tease that we'll...

Two things down...

Three more to go before I can sleep. Argh. I would rather just sit in front of the computer and make web pages. Why did I do the least important stuff first? Why do I always do the least important stuff first? Because it's fun, that's why. Now I'm off to figure out what I want to do with my life. Great....

Haiku galore

Stinking fishies are living in a dirty tank. They like oxygen. Neighbors came by and sprayed each other with canned whipped cream. Don't muss our space. The Heart and Stomach of a King is perused in my History class. Elizabeth re- placed the Virgin Mary in the new English church. She fooled around with sev'ral men but was still known as the Virgin Queen. Programming is hard. Even Visual Basic. Non-logical mind. It is good to know for sure that you do not have a brain infection. What is your advice for making a long-distance relationship work? Winter storms approach....

Late night chez srah!

Late night chez srah! Alex and I are doing all of the work we (read: I) put off all weekend. "Chile es un país de variedades. Es largo, angosto y se tiende de encima del Tropico de Capricornio a la región antártica." My hedgehog-of-a-roommate is evidently not sleepy either, and is burning the Amélie soundtrack and trying to stump the new version of WinAmp....

I tried to say numbers

I tried to say numbers in French today but they tried to come out in Spanish. Things are all confused in my head. I think I'm aging backwards and my attention span is getting shorter as I get older. Maybe i's just early-onset senility. I don't think it's a good sign that the one class I'm taking in my major this semester is the one class where I watch the clock from beginning to end and whimper in my head about how painfully bored I am. I hate literature classes....

I hate studying for my Spanish tests with Alex

I hate studying for my Spanish tests with Alex. Either I am lying and I actually do like it, or I am just really dumb and forget every single time that I hate it and go back to doing it again the next time. Somehow it always results in Alex doubled over in laughter with tears streaming down his face. Is that conducive to learning? No. Alex is a chuleta de cerdo....
