J's thinking about taking up French, because he realized that he could get a BBA degree pretty easily, only he'd need to learn a new language (to a measly B1 level, but still).

What a perfect reason for me to start finally learning French, too.

I smiled when someone told me that I made him feel he could do anything. I think that is the best thing I have ever been told.

One of my favorite bloggers, Ta-Nehisi Coates of The Atlantic, is studying French in his thirties. He has written several posts on the subject so you might enjoy reading them. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a list of tags or archives for his blog.

Thanks.

I'm pretty skilled with languages, they've never been too much of a challenge for me. J - not so much. But he'd be the one taking classes, I'd be the one learning on my own to offer him support. If he actually ends up doing the BBA thing, that is.

He already has a Master's degree, so he doesn't need the BBA so much, but I guess he just as well might take the couple of missing classes and the extra foreign language, because it's not a huge task anyways. It'd be 16 ECTS points of French and three essays, so it's just one year, max.

Now I just hope he'll really end up taking French and not Spanish. Although I guess my Spanish would benefit from some brushing up, too, so maybe that's not the worst idea, either.

But I really want to learn French, I just don't want to do it alone! Does anyone on Lit want to start studying French online with me?

Receiving the most amazing home made flowers I could have ever imagined, let alone been given in this lifetime. When I found them, they me smile so hard, my chest hitched and I teared up a little. Ok, so maybe they smell a bit odd, but for me they are wonderfully, terribly perfect. I am so grateful.

I found it very funny when my brother-in-law told my neice to bite him being a smart ass and she said "only if you buy me dinner first".

Was able to share with someone who's never seen it before the classic Point/Counterpoint skit with Dan Akroyd and Jane Curtin... "Jane, you ignorant slut..." Timeless. And sharing it made me smile, and laugh

My guest post on the Clarion Foundation blog went up this morning. I totally stole the title from my writing partner.

Nice!

That post was inspired after reading a book where the strong female characters were so implausibly written I wanted to call up the author and ask him if he'd ever actually met a woman in his entire life. ARGH!

And when I watch movies and see some scrawny 90lb boob job kicking the crap out of men three times her size I want to scream.

It's as if these people can't find any creative way to make their females plausibly defeat their foes so they just...don't. So annoying.

I either just git my very first message from a complete stranger who said my writing was "amazing" and he loved the book...or an HNG is trying to make a move on me.

I choose the former!

I'm confident it is the former, but even it is the latter, it's at least a literate HNG with a more novel approach than "here's a pic of my genitalia".

Loved the article on the Clarion Foundation blog...

Finally clicking buy on a few things I have needed for a long while but for some lame reasons have been putting off. Soon I will be able to make some progress on my "big picture" project that I was kinda stuck on because I didn't think I could afford the tools I needed. After some budget and priority shifts, turns out I can after all.

Momentum, even if it is slow and steady, feels soooo good.

The promise of an interesting Thursday night.

J has decided he's in charge on this occasion.

I'm already on the good edge.

Two more days of treacle dark teasing is going to push me over in short order.

*Seufz*

I'm a lucky lady.

Great list. Don't forget Steve Jobs completing possibly the greatest business comeback ever. Also, Milton Hershey! Talk about an epic failure. The guy had a dozen great chances to quit, and each time, refused to melt in the hot sticky fingers of despair.
