Flag of Spain  , Valencian Country,
Thursday, January 27, 2011

The weather has taken a bad turn.  I have to bundle up in an eskimo coat.  This is not why I came to the Mediterranean coast.

My first set of final exams is on Friday.  Yeah.  Already.

Grooveshark works here.  Current favorite: Danza Kuduro.  Check it out.

My Spanish conversation professor told me she likes my accent.  I had just said.  "Yo sť que es un bacalao."  My Holy Family friends will appreciate that one.

I am definitely going to need a second suitcase for the journey home.  I was looking for one in a random store by my house and there was a whole line of them with the name David Jolly embroidered on it.  

I got 10 answers on the crossword puzzle today.  Then I gave up and did the sudoku.
Anything goes on tv here.  I watch a show that seems to be a mix between American Idol and Big Brother, and last week they had somebody sing that one Cee Lo song.  At least he sang it the way he's pretty sure it goes.  But even Spanish vulgarity is pretty acceptable on tv.  As well as showing dead bodies.  Ask me about the IKEA commercial when I get home.

It may or may not be obvious to everybody reading that my English is already suffering quite a bit. 
Nothing worth commenting on or photographing has happened since I got back from Valencia.  I hope that these little tidbits help to break up the longer posts.

Dad on

I'm impressed, Elaine! I have a hard enough time doing the Sudoku when it's in English.

Believe it or not, I actually did it in Arabic.

Grandpa on

I really don't know what grooveshark is. However don't make me wait to learn about the IKEA commercial. Better yet, UTUBE it and send it to me.
