In other ESL happenings--yesterday a male student declared that for Spring Break he was, "going to the BEACH". This caused several of the ladies in the back to gasp and give him quite the evil eye. I asked them what was wrong with going to the beach and basically it all came down to this: they thought he said that he was going to the "b****"
Speaking of recording things though, I have to make a secret confession: I am totally stalking the readers of my blog. I haven't wanted to let on, but I figure that everyone should have the joy of seeing all the stats of who visits their blog, when, where, why, how, etc. A waaaayyy old friend of mine, Brett, told me about statcounter.com. Its a free service that gives you an HTML code to put on your blog, and in turn you go to their website to see the IP address, city/state, time visited, pages visited, etc., of whoever is visiting your blog. Its way cool! I can usually recognize who it is simply because I know where most of my friends live, you know. But a lot of times people will stumble on your blog from someone else's blog or after doing a search and it tells you that, too! Anyway, maybe this is old news for a lot of you. If it's not, happy stalking :) Now you'll know that I hit everyone's blogs about 2x a day!
