I realize it probably won’t happen, but if they could pull that series out I would scream for joy. Even though it would fuck my bracket up royally. But I’m not even going to hope. Still, good job, boys, good job.

If you wonder, I have playoff games on most of the night, but I can’t focus on them real closely because I get too nervous. Even when I’m not personally vested in a team, I still usually have a preference, and I get so fucking nervous.

I don’t think I have the nerves to be a hockey fan anymore. Haha.

That’s a fucking beautiful shirt, José. Fucking beautiful. 
Thank you for liking plaid.

So then I went back to watching shows in French, and I got all depressed again, because goddamn it’s hard to even pick out words! It all runs together when they talk! I’m sure that’s what it sounds like to non-English speakers when I talk too, but aaaargh it’s so hard! I want to learn so badly!

I had the same problem with Spanish…after taking 2 years in high school I could recognize words and sometimes understand the general idea of what was being said but it was easier for me to hear it than to speak it…but then there was the problem with accents and just like with people having different accents in the US, the same applies to other countries which makes it hard to sometimes even understand words you know…on top of how quickly they speak!! Hang in there!! I would love to learn, myself, and we could help each other out, lol…why can’t Rosetta Stone be free, hahaah!!

Exactly! I took 2 years of Spanish as well, and I did ok and recognized words and could conjugate verbs and all that. But I can hardly understand anything someone says when they speak Spanish now. Just a word here and there. 

Of course…I didn’t really put much effort into it then. ;) Just enough to get an A. At least I really WANT to learn this time around. Haha.

I’ll be curious to see how this Mango program is. If it works, I’ll give you my login credentials if you were interested (because you have to be a patron of our library to use our subscription.) Unless your local library has it too.

They just did not give much close-up time in this show…he talked quite a bit when they were over there standing, but they showed clips from games most of the time. 

But I had to screen shot him in his full glory, even if it was from a distance.

You’ve all heard me bitch about not knowing French and how I feel lost with all these shows/interviews with José. 
And I’m old and probably too old to learn another language…but by god, I’m at least going to try to pick up a little bit. Even if I do learn a little, I still probably won’t be able to understand them, because they talk faster than these lessons. But that’s not going to stop me from trying.
So that’s my big summer project…see how much French (Canadian) on Mango I can learn. I specifically picked Canadian French, not just French. Our library subscribes to Mango Languages, and they do these lessons and it’s actually a pretty neat  deal. It’s more stuff you’d use in conversation, and they break it down word by word and you can hear them saying it. I’m sure it’s basic as fuck, but I have to feel like I’m trying!
So I finished Lesson 1 and I can say:
Je vais bien (I am well/I go well)
Je m’appelle Carol (I am called Carol)
Quel est votre nom? (What is your name?)

We’ll see how long I can stick with this…I have a terrible memory, and it’s a lot to try to remember…I might be too old for this, haha.

And back to March 27th I go…

I’m having trouble getting clear screen shots…I don’t know if he’s moving more or what, but everything keeps blurring. 

But you know that won’t stop me!

"Next goal wins the game."

Thanks for that, Captain Obvious.

What have I learned from these playoffs?

There are some really uninteresting shows on CSNBC.
