I wanted to Blog...

...but I don't have much to say.

I feel tall some times. I wonder what the average Mexican height is.

I watched TV in Spanish last night. I had a "Bart Simpson" moment. I am referring to the episode where Bart goes to France. Near the end of the episode he is complaining that he has been in France for 2 months and he does not know how to speak French, but then he starts speaking in French. It was like that last night. I was absorbing Spanish. I still cannot speak it very well, but everyone seems to be speaking a little bit slower so I can recognize the words instead of a long string of syllables with breaks for breathing.

Mosquitoes like the taste of pale women. Maddy is getting eaten and I have seen the legs of several other female students. If I did not know better I would think that they had chicken pox or something. I have a few bites, but not like them.

I kind of want to buy souvenirs but what would I do with the crap? "Look! I bought some cheap crap that would look good in Arizona or New Mexico, but I live in Oregon. I guess this will go into the attic." If any of you want some cheap Mexican crap let me know. I will probably by a t-shirt that says "Hecho en Mexico." I'd only wear it in the states. Wearing shirts that say "Made in the USA," or "Hecho en Mexico," when you actually live in that country makes you overly patriotic and as a consequence, somewhat scary to me. Oh by the way...Happy 4th of July.

When I was taking Spanish in school, we got extra credit for watching telanovelas, lol. It was surprisingly helpful! ;)
