I love languages. There are some languages were certain things sound better. For example, Spanish sounds so much more majestic when talking about God because of the form of the words. Anyway, I decided I like Steve Green in Spanish a lot. I found the Hide Em in Your Heart songs in Spanish online. That's fun to listen to.

"Aidan, I have to study Spanish."
"Spanish? Oh that is soooo hard."
"Not really. What do you think la television means?"
"I don't know."
"Well my friend is learning Spanish so he would know what that means. And he's just a kid!"
"Yeah well that's the best time to learn it."
"Did you learn it when you were a kid?"
"No. Don't you have to learn Spanish in school?"
"No, I don't learn it yet. And I'm not ever going to."
"Why not?"
"I don't know. I know what buenos dias means."
"Good morning. Did you know that?"
"She knows it..."
"Aidan, what's your favorite food?"
"My favorite food? I would say peanut butter and jelly."
"That's what I eat every day for lunch."
"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
"Uh... ice cream maker. I would like to be an ice cream maker when I grow up."
"Oh I don't really know why."
"Do you like ice cream?"
"Uh huh."
"What's your favorite flavor?"
"That's boring."
"How come?"
"I don't know... I like chocolate."
"Well I really like vanilla because you can really get yourself vanilla ice cream with M&M's and that's why I like vanilla. If you get chocolate you can't see the M&M's especially if you get a brown one. That's why I'm smart."
"Are you writing all that down?"
"For fun."
"Do you want to be that when you grow up? Is that why you are writing it down?"
"Then why are you writing it down?"
"For fun! Instead of doing my homework."
"That's what you're supposed to do for your homework? Ask someone what their favorite things are? That's weird."
"No, that's not my homework. I'm doing that instead of homework."
"Oh. I thought you said you were doing your homework."

Imagine that... a post!


We were playing with the hats that were hanging on Jessi's wall in her room... they had lots of dust

Wow... special

Apparently my threats don't scare them because Elena and Jessi wrote on the mirror anyway

MuKappa game night

Oh back to the many hats


I was trying to look like Japanese

Hello! Look at this, I'm writing a post! This past week has been crazy-busy with extremely late nights for various and sundry reasons. I had to go to 2 really boring meetings, but at least I got payed to sit there for 5 hours. On top of that, we really need to work on getting our MuKappa cabinet meetings down to 30-45 minutes like they USED to last... not TWO HOURS. Rant over.

Would you believe it, I've grown half a brain! At least in the area of fine literature, I have progressed to actually enjoying it. I found great pleasure in reading sonnets by Shakespeare, Spenser, Sydney, Milton, and Donne. Some of them, particularly Donne, are very fascinating and beautiful.

Sydney, for example, knew the nature of the college student and so he wrote a sonnet especially geared for the college student.
Come, Sleep! O Sleep, the certain knot of peace, The baiting-place of wit, the balm of woe, The poor man's wealth, the prisoner's release... Take thou of me smooth pillows, sweetest bed, A chamber deaf of noise and blind of light, A rosy garland, and a weary head....

At least that's my interpretation of fine literature. I also read the play "Tartuffe" and was quite amused. However, my growth in the world of literature has not managed to embrace Documents of the Christian Church -- at that my brain recoils.

What else of fascination can I indulge you with? Oh yes, Dr. Babb substitute taught for my Pauline 2 class. That was very cool, especially the looks on students faces as the walked in and realized that our chancellor was standing by the desk. Of other food-related news, the Eagle's Nest got a slushie machine and the cafeteria finally has sticky rice.

Four weeks until spring break. That's freaky.
