I have been up since @1:30 am, couldn’t sleep, so I got up. I washed my blanket, loaded the dishwasher, straightened a few things, let the dog out, let the dog in, fed the dog, washed his food and water bowls, gave him fresh water, brushed the cat, ordered a mattress gripper thingie for my bed because I’m tired of pushing the mattress back into place, played WWF, watched Rosemary and Thyme again, ate the rest of my pizza, paid a bill, looked up when *Miss Marple * is on this week and found out Poirot is on this week as well, learned about Daher Decorative Ware from England - I wanted to make sure there’s no problem with lead paint before I try using the bowl to feed the dog, and looked up Sah-son’s Cultural Anthropology assignment because he was bitching about it. I think it looks like fun, so I’ll be tossing out some ideas for him. The only thing I think is hard about it is that it’s a 200 word essay and I don’t know how anybody can write an essay in only 200 words. Unless you don’t include the introductory paragraph and the concluding paragraph in those 200 words. 200 words is not an essay, 200 words is one long paragraph or two short ones.
Anyway, the topic of the essay is to take some aspect of American culture and write about it as though you are from another culture and it is foreign to you.
My first thought of a topic is the America’s obsession with football, and being that neither one of us like or understand it, he can write about it from the POV of a foreigner. But he could also go with twitter, or facebook, or sitcoms, or fast food, or nascar, or using narcotics, or helicopter parenting. I’ll just toss out some ideas and let him run with it.
Congrats on the A Rockin’
Wow! BooFae Sounds like fun, if it weren’t for the flying part.
Oh yeah, it’s cold outside, a whopping 20 degrees. We are supposed to get snow tomorrow and Wednesday. I wonder if dishes can be installed in the snow? I don’t want anybody falling off my roof.
No travel plans for me. No vacation plans. No moving plans, either.
If any of my friends, who keep promising to come up this way and never do, make it up this way, there is a little diner in WV I want to drive out to. We used to stop there when we went to WV for vacations when I was a kid, and it might be fun to go check it out.
So Spidey, why are you possibly moving?
I have to go to irk at 6pm, I hope I get some sleep before then.
