Yeah, so I know I never write anything here anymore. It's because I'm so busy writing 15 page papers about the use of the modal verb will to make predictions about non-imminent future events, and how the contracted form of will is pronounced with "dark l" -- the "l" that appears at the ends of words and carries the resonance of the nearby vowel, as opposed to "clear l", the "l" that begins words like "lick" and "like". Bottom line: I just don't feel like my brilliant jokes about "DARTH L" are that funny, and what's more, being this big a geek is incredibly time-consuming. Every time I think "hey, I should blog this..." I'm usually in a hurry to the next episode of my teaching someone the grammar of transitive and intransitive, separable and inseparable phrasal verbs, and you know... It just never really pans out, time-wise.
Things here, though, despite the intense geekery of my course and my job, are good. I am doing well on the teaching diploma course I'm taking, and I'm still living the dream here in Praha. At the moment, the hill across from our loft is bright green with new linden flowers, and the days are longer and warmer. I work a lot, but at the end of every day, I come home to a man so kind and sweet that it boggles my mind that he puts up with me. I'm happy, healthy and well.
