lost in translation

Monday, March 16th, 2009

One thing I have learned from communicating in English with someone who is speaks English as a second language, is that I probably learn more about the English language than the other person. I am a fast, get to the point kind of talker. But I have found that when you have no choice but […]

getting over the perservatives

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Out of the blue my cousin Kathy emailed me a fact: when you drink a pint of Guinness, you should drink seven sips so there are seven rings around the glass when you are done. Apparently,  an Irish person will only see between 5-7 rings after finishing the pint. I told her I would have […]

Actually, it wasn’t spite at all, ice cream is my biggest weakness no […]
