Very Bad Blogger!

Gosh, I'm not doing well at this, am I? I suppose I should write at home, put it on a disk, and then bring it on in to the internet cafe so I don't have to worry about my time. (You've got five CRAZY minutes!)

Anyway, Friday was apparently a day of mourning for Americans. I hope you all had a good time. There was a notice on the board of the international school, where I work, which said that some American students may not be in Friday. I didn't see any missing.

Anyway, it led to the following amusing exchange:

Me, to American Co-Worker: I see you're here today, despite the Day of Mourning.
ACW: Yeah. How about that.
English Co-Worker: Do you always have these when Presidents die?
Me: Well, it doesn't happen that much. I mean, the last one was Nixon, and of course, he didn't get one of these.
ACW: Poor Nixon.
Me: He tried so hard.
ACW: His heart was in the right place.
Me: Ohhhhh....I wouldn't go that far.
