First, I want to start off saying I had a great lunch today with the new A-100's GLIFAA folks. I love these lunches...I find them energizing! I love meeting the newest diplomats and helping them any way I can.
But I gotta ask...where the hell are the lesbians? Really folks...it seems like there are maybe five of us...and me and my wife count for two of them! Okay, I am exaggerating, but still...we need more women!
Anyway, today was also a good language day. We regularly listen to taped dialogues in class and translate to our teacher what we heard. And I understood today's really well...by the second time she played it, I was able to relate back to her almost everything that was said. Our teacher even asked if I had heard this dialogue before. But I hadn't.
I am sure I will be back to being stupid in Estonian by tomorrow!
