Re: I smiled because...

our family splurged and had "linner" ( lunch/dinner) at Burger King today.
Yes I know fast food is crap for ya but after a rough week it was nice to kind of have a taste from home.

Ps. Was there something going in near the Rolle/La Cote rest area? The place was PACKED and it was kind of an off hour for lunch.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled when we were checking today's temps all over the world with students at their home lands: Kongo, France, Switzerland, Brazil, Turkey, Albania, Portugal, etc. We were covering weather vocabulary, seasons and such; I was surprised that the fall is quite liked by teens, unlike the winter.

Re: I smiled because...

´Cause I graduated in Letter (Linguistics), but I have to finish some disciplines in there. I´d much conviction that some colleagues in the class speak French better than me. In this morning, I arrived there with a generative grammar in French to discusse some topics about "les modèles syntagmatiques", but just my professor and me discuss it. I think my colleagues are so shy or they are affraid to face it.
