Wait, I take it back. At least the sand has character.
It’s pretty much the worst thing to be paired with someone who seems absolutely disinterested in learning. I mean, I don’t particularly like being partnered up with someone I don’t know, but if it makes me speak better, okay. The least you can do is make conversation. This guy basically made me want to shoot myself in the face.
This is not the most annoying person in the class though, oh no. The most annoying guy is this teenage dude who insists on pronouncing about 1/2 second LATER than everyone else in the class, and pronounces all the words WRONG. DEAD WRONG. He also has one of those voices that carries. I’ve decided to give him one hard karate chop to the neck. That ought to keep him from talking.
On a similar note, I was looking for a “learn Japanese” clip on youtube, and instead I found this gem of a video on how to teach Japanese people English (yes, it is safe for work):
I’m not sure how aerobics helps teach Japanese women being mugged to speak English, but I’m not sure I DISlike it…
Well, I was going to post a funny photo of Winston, but again, blogger is being a manpon, so no picture tonight.
Winston started blowing more bloody snots out of his nose when we got to the vet, making me EXTREMELY worried. We discussed everything that has happened, and she said that without using a scope, which is a rather expensive procedure, that she couldn’t be sure. She noticed that the snots were only coming out of the right nostril, so it’s nothing like cancer.
She suggested that most likely he still has an irritated throat and a little stuffy nose. He might have a piece of carbaord stuck in his nose, and that could also be what’s irritating him as well. He’s also probably not eating because he’s having trouble breathing, so eating is more of a struggle.
We’re going to try antibiotics for 14 days to see if he perks up. The vet also suggested that he might not be eating because we switched his food right around the time that he barfed up the chocolate, so he might be associating the food with bad times. I’m sure we all have a food like that!
HOPEFULLY he doesn’t need to have a scope put down his nasal passage.
He’s in pretty good spirits though. He met a boston terrier/bulldog cross, which was a really good looking dog! He also had a little play session with a terrier, so he was in a good mood.
On a bad note, Winston is officially a porker. The vet said he’s 22 pounds and he should probably be around 18. Winston is going on a diet! What a bad few weeks for him! I even cut back his food twice and he’s still a little pudgy! It’s like he absorbs fat from the air!
So now I have to go out and buy new food all over again (AGH!), give him antibiotics, not exercise him too much (because of his airway), but make sure not to overfeed him. What’s a mother to do?!
I really want him to feel better though, and I’d do basically anything for him, so hopefully in a few weeks he’s at 100%!
I forgot how buggy-eyed Frank was! Yeowsa!
After I saw some of MIB II today, it got me thinking of other movies with pugs:
Actually, that’s the only other movie I know that has a pug in it! I’d choose Frank over Otis though. Sorry Otis, but Frank just looks too sharp in a suit and tie combo.
