Friday Five

Enough gloom and doom. Let's do the Friday Five:

1. What was the last song you heard?
"A Very Merry Unbirthday" from Alice in Wonderland. They were showing the movie on tv and we stopped to watch. It was the easiest thing to understand in German that I've ever seen.

2. What were the last two movies you saw?
Lost in Translation and Whale Rider. Both very good. I liked Whale Rider better though.

3. What were the last three things you purchased?
Hmmm. I don't buy very much. Let's see, various food for lunches, the textbook for my German class, and dog nail clippers. I think those were the most recent things.

4. What four things do you need to do this weekend?
1) Stop injuring myself
2) My German homework
3) Buy towels and a new travel/cosmetic bag
4) Possibly take a harbor cruise (weather permitting). Otherwise see another Hamburg sight.

5. Who are the last five people you talked to?
Interesting question. I don't get around much these days, but basically:
1) Kevin
2) The three people who helped me after I fell (although that was hardly a conversation)
3) The English speakers in my German class, Mason, Eren, Mattias, and Graham, when Mason suggested we go out after class next week and we agreed.
4) The non-English speakers in my German class, Anna and Tang, with whom I held scripted German conversations from the book.
5) Scout (actually she's right up there with Kevin).

Hi. I found my way here thru and wanted to comment before I left. I was reading the last few entries of your blog and I can totally sympathise with you about your knees. I have a bad knee (three years ago I was not paying attention while leaning against a wall putting on my sneakers, lost my balance and my knee inverted- well it didnt bother me then and not for two years after the fact but then all of a sudden its been acting up every few months and it sucks...). I hope your feeling better from that. I know how painful a bad knee can be.
