A few words before grading....

I have to grade, you all.

But before I do, I wanted to just catch you up on my life.

Remember back in '88 when we went from Oly to Seattle in two minutes?

I just bought a new suit. It's BAD, children, the suit is bangin'. Tommy the salesman started putting shirts and ties together... hoo, that was fun. I saw an interview look, a fancy date look, a Pentacostal church look, a singing-at-a-wedding look (cream tie on a cream shirt: stand back). Then he brought out the white shirt with a white tie, and I said, no, Tommy, that's if *I'm* getting married. My cousin's bride would be mad at me if I showed up to her wedding flashier than her.

I said, Tommy, this is fun, but we can do it later. I pick up the suit on Friday. I think I'm gonna go with the light green shirt and light green tie with blue squares. We'll see what my sister thinks.

Finally, for Gwen, I don't know if you're still reading Gwen, but I will help you with the Preterit Tense. There are only four categories of preterit: Regulars, Irregulars (only 3), Minority Verbs (only 12), Stem Changers (the same IR stem change verbs from the Present Tense). Four kinds, that's all. There are no more.

Still reading, yes (it's in my Favorites-Blogs folder). And I know that it's not really really hard. It's still a pain, least I'm not learning English! (If that's not the mantra of every native English speaker learning a new language, it should be...)
