my alias:

vicki, aka our favorite hippo, was kind enough to find me this:

yay for otters!
reasons otters are great:
they are playful
they eat off of their stomachs

lame, but true

i secretly love patriotic music, like "america, the beautiful" and "my name is richard henry lee, virginia is my home."

you know what i mean.

survival techniques

i leave for indonesia in less than a week now and i'm a bit apprehensive. definitely excited, mind you, but nervous that i'll contract some horrible disease or stomach virus because my weak american body has been conditioned only to survive in a completely sterile environment, i.e., america.

i even had some stomach complaints in france when i first arrived there, and that was france. oh well. there will be so many amazing things happening, i hope, that i won't even notice if i'm rushed to the emergency room to be treated with five different medications to bring down the swelling.

bon voyage!

it's not just for the classroom!
