At Dutch proms everyone gets seriously drunk. No dates or anything, just alcohol.

It's funny. Prom might be the only time when danes are not drunk (at least not seriously).

I wish I had a home. I have an apartment and home insurance but I don't think it will ever become a home. I don't like the apartment itself, area where I'm living nor my flatmate. Subrenting or living in a suburb is clearly not my cup of tea.

I have been thinking about finishing my translation of the Apostolic Fathers and Justin Martyr into Dutch, which would be their first translation into that language, but I'm so lazy. Perhaps in a few weeks...

How long have you studied greek, Cyrillic?

This is the seventh year. Five years in school. Next year I'm going to study it alongside History. Still, any possible publication of my translation is at least months away, even if I would work on it again from today on. The translation has been collecting dust for a while and just recently I got new critical editions so I need to recheck what I have done on Justin Martyr anyway.
God bless you brother. Great things await you. Your translations will surely feed many hungry souls.   :angel::angel:

Though, if i had gotten the wireless keypad, i would have been able to use it with my iPad, only thing is it didn't come with the number pad, solo, yeah, no thanks.

Last night I helped my wife grade papers from her 6th grade English class. The students were asked to write separate sentences that used the pronouns “ours,” “these,” “who,” “that,” and “everyone.” I couldn’t resist sharing some these sentences with you:

From “P.L.”:
“These is a shoe.”

From “D.R.”:
“That tree was fall on my house tomorrow at 3:00 p.m.”

From “N.T.”:
“Everyone go to Nichlos Middle School are chumps.”

From “C.R.”:
“Who is you talk about.”

From “K.A.”:
“Ours class are so intelligen.”

From “M.W.”:
“This is ours not your end more.”

From “K.J.”:
“These paper is wrong.”

From “J.D.”:
“Who is are they.”

From “K.M.”:
“Who you at home with myself.”

From “J.P.”:
“Ours dog has a flease.”

But my favorite is this one from “L.H.”:
“These people is a hot mess.”

However, I also stumbled across these two sentences from “M.K.” that were quite philosophical for a 6th grader:

“On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.”

“The atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support.”

Pretty deep stuff from M.K.!

So, maybe I should help my wife grade papers more often. Not only is there a lot of humor to be found in that activity, but there are also some surprising insights as well. Plus, it makes my wife happy.   :)

“These is a shoe.”

From “D.R.”:
“That tree was fall on my house tomorrow at 3:00 p.m.”

From “N.T.”:
“Everyone go to Nichlos Middle School are chumps.”

From “C.R.”:
“Who is you talk about.”

From “K.A.”:
“Ours class are so intelligen.”

From “M.W.”:
“This is ours not your end more.”

From “K.J.”:
“These paper is wrong.”

From “J.D.”:
“Who is are they.”

From “K.M.”:
“Who you at home with myself.”

From “J.P.”:
“Ours dog has a flease.”

But my favorite is this one from “L.H.”:
“These people is a hot mess.”

However, I also stumbled across these two sentences from “M.K.” that were quite philosophical for a 6th grader:

“On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily as lying down.”

“The atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support.”

Pretty deep stuff from M.K.!

So, maybe I should help my wife grade papers more often. Not only is there a lot of humor to be found in that activity, but there are also some surprising insights as well. Plus, it makes my wife happy.   :)

I read these to my wife and she said it sounds like texting language.

My hair is getting long. Should I have it cut or let it grow?

Hippie-long or just Beatles-long?

In that case, I'd keep it, if you're comfortable with it of course.

I think I'll stick to it. Nobody seems to like it, though, except my heavy metal friends.
