My grocery list

First off, my grocery list is in FRENCH, because how cool is that! (The only problem that occurs is when I don't remember what 'persil' is and have to stand there and rethink everything I need and do process of elimination) (doesn't happen often, thankfully).
Also, my to-do list is in French as well, because that's even more cool.

Anyhow, it's super weird how my kitchen is a LOT like my mom's (and unlike normal dorm kitchens) and still a lot like usual dorm kitchens are.
So, the first thing people notice when they come in is that we have a set of over 20 knives in a block on the counter. This tends to alarm them, a little. They're my roommate's, and they've scared quite a few people.
Anyways, it's like my mom's in that I HAD to have a grill pan, and my measuring cups are different shades of purple. I always always always have parsley, garlic, olive oil, American barbeque sauce, Montreal steak spice and allspice. They're my staples. I've also got a ton of water bottles, and an icetray that makes fish-shaped ice cubes. (debating whether naming them would be cool, or just traumatizing, seeing as you melt them to death every time. And then eat them).
Moving on.
I've also got the really mature stuff like frosted chocolate cereal (bad for you on like, eight different levels!) and chocolate poptarts.
Also, a ton of pasta, which is funny.

It's just really weird to have my own grocery list and see that it's super 'me' with the poptarts and stuff, but still has stuff that's on my mom's list. Also, I'm a super awesome chef, and my go-to recipes are super advanced, like that parsley/garlic/olive oil pasta, because you know what? Everyone else's go-to's come out of a box, and that's just beneath me.
(Total food snob).

Funny story:
I was writing an email to my hockey teammates, just to update them on what's going on, and the first sentence says "to let yall know the status" etc. One of my roommates saw that and was all "you're so American!!" because of the "yall" :D it was funny.
Also, the second sentence contained the word "whereupon."

I was listening to Bachelor Pad (WHAT a screwed up show! It was so mean! This one guy was engaged to a chick, and they broke it off. Then they're both on the show, blahblahblah, and on the final episode, in front of the studio and people and AMERICA, they tell him she's engaged to another guy. That poor dude!) anyhow, there's this one part where they're discussing a guy everyone hates for some reason. One of the guys says "I wanted to punch him across the face - for America!" Soooo funny!

I still can't figure out how to send pictures to here straight from my blackberry, so I'm working on that.

Classes, part 2, or something

So, this is slightly late, but still.
Classes part 2!!
1. English! It's a 200-level, and it's Medieval Literature (that's an irritating word to spell. Medieval, not literature). Anyhow, it's unexciting. And an hour and a half long.
2. German, which is SO SO EASY it's annoying. We're learning how to say the same simple things over and over.
3. French lecture. This class is set up in the system France uses - you have one lecture a week, by the professor - the magistrale class, I think it means like.... superior in English, or something - anyways, the prof's very good, too. Except the class is like, legit French grammar.

I don't have names for this stuff in English. That's where studying another language gets really weird- when you can't describe this stuff in your own language, but totally can in the second one. We're at the point where we don't use English, and when you learn a new word, you don't get its translation, you get its French definition.

I think that's it for classes. I've got friends in a bunch of them, which is cool.

Classes, part 1

I started school today!! Here's what I had:

1. French Tutorial
This was at 9AM, which is an absolutely ungodly hour, by the way. The teacher was really funny, though. And it's taught by a professor, NOT a TA!

2. Linguistics
This was at 2. So I've a huge gap in between classes. But! My friend's in this one with me, and we had a short lesson on how you innately know how to use "eh." Also, this is in forestry, for some reason.

3. Philosophy
Scientific reasoning! I took this because it sounds like a Spock class. And I have a friend in this one too!

Also, I have HOCKEY tomorrow!!! I'm so excited :) Also, I did the Grouse Grind on Monday!! I'll have pictures and stuff eventually - maybe even UPLOADED FROM MY BLACKBERRY. (Super excited to have one, if you couldn't tell).

Anyways, tomorrow I've got English and German! I'm sooo excited! AND I ALSO HAVE HOCKEY, IN CASE YOU FORGOT ALREADY. :) yayyy!
