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.
*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!
