Ah Georgia, the mention of snow strikes fear into the hearts of anyone in authority. Can’t have another 2014-esque fiasco, can we? Close the schools. Close the government offices. However, companies that are based in Denver keep their Atlanta offices open…
Here I am.
Reporting for duty.
I’m not so secretly hoping that someone in this office panics a bit today and sends us home early. Fingers crossed….
All Is Quiet On The German Front
Week seven of German A1.3 is in the books, three more lessons to go in this session.
Last night I changed things up a bit by eating a delicious faux-Asian meal before class at Tin Drum AsiacafÃ©â„¢; as I always do I had the Tin Drum Curry Chicken. Perhaps the only downside of the meal was being greeted with a loud Moe’s-esque “Welcome to Tin Drum” shout, the biggest reason I dislike eating at that faux-Mexican fast food establishment.
Surprisingly class was attended by all fifteen enrolled students; this may be only the third time this session that this has happened.
Class was good, but as I have lamented previously I don’t feel as if I am progressing at the pace I desire. I’ll keep plugging away however.
I was feeling energized upon my return home last night and somehow managed to stay awake until nearly 1:00am. Of course I didn’t do anything that I was supposed to do, instead I watch television shows and podcasts that I had downloaded to my iPad.
Tonight I will return to the land of Deutsch.
Must See TV For Me
There’s been much ado about tonight’s Modern Family. From what I understand it was shot entirely using iPhones and iPads, and will be presented from the view of looking at a MacBook. As an Apple geek (and shareholder) I love seeing this sort of product placement for the company.
Speaking of Apple, I received an invitation to interview with them. It’s legit. However, even if I felt qualified to work for the Mother Company I have absolutely no interest in moving to California. Even though I spent three years in the Central Time Zone I am an East Coaster through and through.
Tonight also brings the start of The Amazing Race, Season 26. I’m not too thrilled with the gimmick this go ’round, eight dating couples and eight never-before-met couples, but I’ll watch nonetheless.
Must run, have to get some things done if I’m going to leave early… 😉
