Silliness Ensues

I'm back!

April was a weird month for me in that it seemed to last forever (a la my husband's job), yet at the same time went by in a flash (a la my goals). I wasn't a total stranger to the blogosphere (thanks Ruth!), but I wasn't exactly a close friend either. I think acquaintance is the word. ;)

As for my writing challenge with the fabulous Leigh Moore (1K of writing a day), I missed 5 times. Five!!! So that means I will be embarrassing myself a la video for the Hacky Sack Club pretty much most of this month. Hopefully a la your viewing pleasure. ("A la" is my pet phrase of the day.)

Like Leigh, I can't decide if I'm more embarrassed by that expression on my face at the first, or by my horrible accent. Anyway, enough chatter. First installment, here:



So now that I'm back, did I miss anyone's happy news? I'd love to hear your shoutouts for yourself or your friends. :)

LOL Did you know what your son was doing when you shoot that?

Man, why can't my French accent sound like yours? :(

Melissa Sarno said...

To an untrained ear, your french accents sounds incredible. 'o la vache' I have such talented friends. Your son was killing me...

LTM said...

bwahahahaha!!! Love that opening face! *snort* :D (why does it DO that???) Because you're speaking FRENCH!!! Ooooo... How wonderful you sound! bluh bluh bluh, French (Pee Wee Herman). Yes, I need to culturally adjust... ;p

But by far is when you say, "the difficulties I face," cue your son to start w/all the antics. LOL! Hilarious! <3 ((hugs))

I have yet to become fluent in one language, English, so I have much respect for you.

I didn't hear a word you said. I was distracted by that hilarious kid in the background. :)

Bethany C. said...

Your background dancer was AWESOME!

Missed Periods said...

I am so jealous that you speak such beautiful French. I have been listening to French CDs in my car for a year and I'm hopeless.

Carolyn V said...

Wow! You have beautiful French! I tried a class in college and couldn't get the accent right.

Your son cracked me up. What a cutie. ;)

Connie Arnold said...

That was great, Janet! You did great with the French and the background entertainment was such fun!
