UPDATED: It's the Ides of November And This Isn't Working

Okay, here's the scoop skinny 411 explanation for the lack of updates here recently. It's mostly due to the internet connection circus o' hoops here at Lycée Victor Hugo.

The only computers I have regular access to are staff computers in the teachers room, which are great in that they're there, and not so hot in most other measurable aspects, including being able to work and being under what feels like constant surveillance.

I must add, of course, that they're not under constant surveillance, it's just that I'm doing my best here to conduct my private correspondance in the midst of a constantly shifting group of people, many of whom I have conversations with.

So I'm working on a phone line, and with phone line comes internet access. I have other blog entries typed out and ready, but they're on my keychain drive and the USB ports on this machine aren't working etc etc.

If you're following this blog I beg your patience, because actual content is coming soon. If you're expecting email from me (especially Dave, but especially Orith) I swear to God I'm on it.

In the meantime, here are the Official Counts:

Official Beret Count (France): 1
Official McDonald's Count (Europe): 8
Official Mullet Count (Europe): 2
Official Dwarves Who Look Like ZZ-Top Playing Country Music on the Piano and Accordian in the Town Square Count (Europe): 2

Incidentally, zizi (pronounced ZZ) is a French slang term for, ahem, male genitalia. I was warned off mentioning that band during lessons on American music. See that you all do the same.

Yeah! Mullet count! Best idea ever.
No mullets spotted in Munich this weekend.

If you want to add to your McDonalds count, I believe I have seen 3 now and at least one burger king.

However a more exciting count is of dwarves that look like zztop playing country music on the piano and accordian in the town square. That count is at 2.

Dude: Zed Zed Top.

Way to think inside the box.

Yeah, or how about 'way to not sound like a simpering Brit.' I like that one better.
