Guess who's taking French 101? ;-)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I had the super-low goal of pronouncing French loan words correctly, and reading Le Petit Prince out loud. Before this course, the only French phrase I knew was “omelette du fromage*” X-D

To remember that hands are feminine and face is masculine, I pictured Uhura's hand caressing Spock’s face.
La main, le visage.

Derek Hale eats his vegetables, bikes every day, has a punishing diet regime and obsessively cleans his house to show that he can provide for his mate. Derek Hale’s arms. Derek Hale’s face.
Le légume, le cyclisme, le régime, le ménage.
Les bras, le visage.

You’re welcome.

* Dexter’s Laboratory. The dictionary tells me it should be “omelette au fromage.” My childhood cartoon show, you have lied to me. All your bases are belong to us.



Two more days (a chapter quiz and final exam) and I'm done. Possibly the last language class I'll ever take at the university. I ran out of money/education award, for one thing... The award didn't even cover 4 credits, hahah, so everything else was out of pocket (building maintenance, campus beautification, etc).

I rented the textbook from Amazon, but was forced to shell out $80~ for the "lab" portion of the course. What’s wrong with good old CDs, people?? College tuition in the U.S. is unreasonably expensive =__= even compared to just a decade ago (which was when I graduated).

With the madness collection open, there is now Not Prime Time 2014 and Prime Time Madness 2014 open with delicious stories. Definitely check it out and leave some kudos/comments.

Yesterday, I heard about a show called In The Flesh and I'm two episodes in (out of three in the first season. Season two has six). I'm actually enjoying the show. I didn't think I would because I'm not a fan of "zombies" but the main character, Kieren, is persuading me. Kieren is also gay (I know, a main gay character, what!) and from what I can tell from the Wikipedia page (beyond what I've learned in the first two episodes), he has two love interests. I'll probably finish season one by tonight with the third episode and then I'll watch season two later this week.

Not Prime Time 2014 is open and there are over 160 stories in 145 fandoms to read. :D

I'm waiting until Friday afternoon before I read because I have a final to study and take, but there are plenty of summaries that sound like it'd be right up my alley.
