Friday Fragments- June 19, 2009

While I was browsing the interwebs this week I came across Friday Fragments at Half-Past Kissin' Time. Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. So without any further ado-

*I added a "related posts" widget to the bottom of my posts. I'd love some feedback on it since I can't decide if I like it or if it's just obnoxious. Unfortunately I don't have any control over which posts it pulls.

*I was an invigilator for the Cambridge ESOL exam this week. I think that invigilator is a fancy word for "paper passer-outer," "paper-collector," and "babysitter." Really though, I can't complain too much about making €11 per hour to read and watch people to make sure they weren't cheating off of each other.

*I need to build my biking stamina back up, I have been feeling like a weenie whenever I go out.

*I made strawberry freezer jam. Mr. Jummy tried to steal it and eat it all at once.
Mr Jummy stole my jam!

*One of the ladies from the North American Women's Club has organized a Dutch conversation class. We're going to have an actual Dutch instructor teaching us so it won't devolve into "Dutch is too hard so let's speak English!" I hope it will help build up some confidence in my speaking abilities.

*Martijn came into the kitchen from the bathroom the other day dangling his belt and was wiggling the buckle back and forth. I asked him what he was doing and he said he had been sitting in the bathroom listening to a squeak. He thought we had mice until he realized it was his squeaky belt buckle.

*I'm seriously looking forward to the 4th of July BBQ this year. Now I need to decide what food to bring along.

*There are teeny tiny baby kitties outside our building. I want to smuggle them all upstairs. Maybe I can tell Martijn I got them to take care of the mouse problem!

Mr. Jimmy is one smarth "thing." Hubby DOES steal all the freezer jam - - - - EVERY time.

BTW, since I'm relatively new here, I've never seen Mr. Jimmy before I think he's real dapper!!!

You're a cutie; I enjoyed your FF post. Welcome :)

I tried the related posts thingy but felt like it cluttered up my page. I don't mind it on other people's blogs, though, and I have clicked on them now and then.

Mr.Jummy is sassy but adorable, and my mouth is watering just looking at that jam! :)

I think kitties to solve the mice problem is a fantastic idea! As is a post of "fragments!

Yes you "need" those kittens to take care of the squeaky "mice" that Martijn discovered! hee hee.....

I'll bet Mr. Jummy is going to auction off your prized strawberry jam to the highest bidder. And then he'll get ............... Well, really I don't know him good enough to know what he'd get. He already has everything of yours, so I am guessing he'd go for upgrades.

Dutch conversation (immersion) class. GO FOR IT! You'll feel a lot more confident when you can speak the language without thinking.

I think you are doing an awesome job. You are very strong and I admire that you have packed up and moved across the world to a new environment. I am so happy that you found Martijn and are willing to sacrifice so much for your togetherness. You really are awesome!

Have a super wonderful week!!!
