I have recently found the website SumbleUpon and it is a really cool thing!
|Martin and me at the Nashville|
Martin Deron got here last night, and he has such a great sense of humour! And really really good at English which scares me because I'm not as good at French. But let's be honest, I'm not actually scared. I have plans to simply wing it from here on out. I do understand him when he speaks French though, so that's a plus.
We met him at the airport with Bob Currie (the organiser of Nashville's RYE) and his son, Kevin, and exchange student from Belgium, Charles. Charles's last name on facebook is Lplt and I just have no idea if that is his real name or not. They were very engaging to talk to and Charles told me about Belgian things, like the fact that the Liege accent is nigh incomprehensible. Challenge accept. We drew signs in colored sharpies that said "Welcome Martin" etc in funny colors and drew pictures of the American flag. I assured Martin, "not all Americans are this tacky."

On Sunday I went to the mall just to get out of the house for a bit. I had forgotten it was tax free weekend, so the mall was REALLY crowded. Which I also love.
Sorry this post is so dry, but I'm quite tired and the unenthusiastic-enthusiasm angle really tickles me right now!
