French students

I really liked this quote from Like the Red Panda by Andrea Siegel, hehe:

"The fourth-year French students at my school are mostly soft AP girls or weird kids obsessed with the Renaissance...I think that kids who take French have parents who've instilled basic values in them, like respect for school and other cultures...The real assholes and morally ambiguous kids are the ones who take Spanish." -Andrea Seigel

Also, this one from Zinn's A People's History:

"Here was the traditional device by which those in charge of any social order mobilize and discipline a recalcitrant population -- offering the adventure and rewards of military service to get poor people to fight for a cause they may not clearly see as their own." -Howard Zinn, on the American Revolution

I will actually try to maybe add more content in the next few days. I dunno what happened, suddenly my life actually got busy! But I'm definitely not complaining. :)

about the biggest pair you ever seen, dingleberry!

Just wanted to say how much I think Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes rocked up at UConn yesterday night...well, I guess technically they talked into this morning, but you know. Kevin Smith is great to listen to, he's got a million and one stories to tell (and takes about 45 minutes to answer each question!), so if you ever get a chance to go see him speak, DO. Definitely worth it. (And especially so when he brings Jay - clad in only a towel - along and they banter back & forth for a couple of hours, too!) I definitely appreciate ViewAskew even more, now. Rock on.
