Well you see, there was this storm. With lots of wind. And rain. And we lost internet. And electricity.
So I couldn't blog.
Except for I wasn't at home for any of that. I was one of the numbskulls out driving in it, trying to get home. All 5 of us. In 2 vehicles.
My poor judgement aside, I still can't use the storm as an excuse, now can I?
I spent my limited internet time today productively, though.
I did some interesting reading about the Duggars.
Which got me nosing around on their website, where I found this handy chart of character traits, defined.
I also spent some time researching for a project I'm working on. And came up with this little list:
Basic French / English words:
Oui (wee) = yes
Non (nong) = no
S’il vous plait (seel voo play) = please
Merci (mair -see) = thank you
Bonjour (bong-zhoor) = hello
Au revoir (oh rer-vwahr) = goodbye
Excusez-moi (ex-kewzay mwah) = excuse me
Does anybody speak French? How'd I do?
I also learned there are about 3 different ways to say excuse me, depending on if you have interrupted someone, stepped on their foot, or committed some other offensive behavior.
And now if you will excusez-moi, my baseball team is on tv. They've won 5 in a row, and my guys are all gathered around. I think I'll join them. And enjoy the rain that is still pouring down. 'Cuz the rain don't care. Yo.
