I'm So Exciting

I did almost nothing this weekend and it felt great! I know I don't work much, but I do "go" a lot and I think I just needed a small break. Friday night I went out for curry with Dan and Marion and their friends Charlotte and Florian. I always have a good time with them, but I think I need to apologize to Marion. We were talking about politics and we all sort of ganged up on her. I felt bad the next day sans alcohol.

Saturday I slept until 11 and then sat at my computer all day looking through jobs and trying to adjust my c.v. I hate looking for jobs! I seem to do it very often and I am tired of it. If anyone reading this would like to give me a job, I would be extremely thankful. I still don't know if I will stay here for another year or not. If I can find a decent PERMANENT job in the U.S. I would be home in a heartbeat, but I just don't want to arrive without some security.

Sunday I cooked dinner for the American students because they came to my classes and spoke about American students. I thought I owed them as much.

Well, that's it. I know, you are jealous.

By the way, it is warm here! I got to wear flip flops for the first time since November. Warm weather is such a wonderful thing.

I love not doing anything sometimes. it's nice to get some time to relax and enjoy what little pleasures we have.
Flip-flops?! now I'm jealous. I hate cold weather. Can't wait till it gets warm. They're saying almost 70 by the weekend but I bet it don't happen.

You don't need to apologize Angela, I didn't even remember it! Now I'm angry... No, I'm joking. It was funny cos it was one of these moments when I felt I believed in my opinion and after a while and several people intervening I thought "bloody hell, what if they were right? maybe our old system cannot last any longer!" and then thought, oh well, I can't change my mind now... The thing is, it's a never-ending conversation, and things will happen if they have to, whether French people agree with them or not. As for me, I am not against the CPE (although I am not for it either) but I will (shame on me) make the most of this day of striking to relax and enjoy myself! I've worked so hard lately, I feel like I deserve it a bit. To sum it up, Angela, we have agreed to disagree, and I am glad we can have stimulating conversations! Being able to converse with people from a different country and who therefore have contrasting views on certain things is a wonderful thing, especially when they are your friends, isn't it? I'd better go, instead of taking all the space. Take care, see you soon! x x

Moment-My flip flops caused two huge blisters on my toes. I forgot how to break them in!

Marion-Well, I did feel like I was being a little too domineering. By the way, where is your blog...

Julie-I promise to write more about food.

DL-Sounds like you had a good weekend too.

TBC-Glad you are finally putting pictures on your blog.
