[Not A Song Lyric]

I was kind of embarrassed to realize that my last three posts were titled with lyrics having absolutely nothing to do with their content.  I am not doing that this time, but instead giving you a video that has nothing to do with... anything.  I mean, I made it.  It's a song I wrote, but I have absolutely no clue what it's about.  But, guys!  I got a comment on it from some guy in Australia who I don't even know.   That's some yays.  Yep, this is me... excited about a few comments on the blog and a couple stranger views on YouTube.  I'm so clueless.  Hopefully somebody will find it funny one day.

I had my NSLI-Y interview on Tuesday, and I think it went really well.  I was questioned by a very charming couple, who have been AFS host parents in the past, and we got on fairly well.  I think they liked me and what I showed them of the school, and the only thing that's got me really worried is the fact that they didn't even touch the candied nuts and chocolate wafers I'd set out for them.  People who turn down sweets make me nervous.  Oh, know what else makes me nervous?  This shit going down in Egypt.  I mean, bringing the internet down is a pretty harsh blow, and the violence is looking to get pretty scary.  And, also, I mean... Egypt was my second choice for the summer programme.  I seriously doubt they'll be sending anybody there now. 

In other news:  White Stripes:  WHAT THE BLOODY HELL?  I love you.  We love you.  So why the goddamn hell are you breaking up?  This has been a hard week, and you are not helping it or rendering me any more likely to pass chemistry. 

Our awesomely anglophilic Brit Lit teacher here has started a british television club.  We had our first meeting today - ploughman's lunch - and talked about what to watch and when.  Looks like Jeeves & Wooster and Yes, Minister are firsts on the list.  This almost makes up for the White Stripes breakup.  Not quite, but almost.
