Hey dude!
Whew! Whoever knew college work could be so hard? Irregardless of that though, I am having a great time! Studying here in England is cool, but our American dollar is quickly deprecating. Of course our British friends say that we are getting our just deserts.

My English courses are wonderful and I am learning so many new words! Of course, having excess to a computer really compliments my written work because I can excess the internet. My Language professor laughed out loud when she pursued my last essay and complemented on my ‘creative usage of the English language.’ High praise indeed from her! Actually, she has us studying entomology — the study of the history of words. So interesting and I’m learning so much.

London is more than I ever expected. I have even seen the notoriously famous Tower of London. Man, so many elicit things went on there; just walking in had quite an affect on me. I even heard that there might be hordes of treasure in there, but of course, no one is allowed to explore too much.

I hate to brooch the subject with you dude, but how’s the love life shaping up with Chloe? Is she still just as callus, or has her opinion of you undergone an altaration? I think your proposal of marriage was jumping the gun a bit, a bit immature if you get my drift. But hey, every man to his own; and if you need to get away, I hope you can do it without immunity.

The night-life here is pretty good too. I took one my classmates (female of course!) to one of the night clubs, but we left because it was too noisome, even for me! The ‘tube’ (as they call the subway here) is great, and we get anywhere around London without waiting.

Drake dude, I have to sign off now. My mom’s IM’ing me, and you know how upset she gets if I don’t answer precipitously.

Ok, later — get on yahoo and I’ll IM you sometime.

Alex

So funny and clever! Still laughing!
Dianne Janak08/24/07
Clever piece, although kind of scary at some of the sad truth behind it. After having said that, where is spell check? Would hate to coment about the sad trooth and get caught with a tie poe!

Betting this was a BLAST to write. I know it was for me to read. :) Fun fun fun!

Your on to something hear! It would be so fun. And a laugh to, to write this kind of story. Being happy that my grammer errors are not on display. This is grate!

While reading, my mind said "What in the world...?" It took me a while to "get it". What fun writing this must have been.

An absolutely delightful entry! Unfortunately, I've graded too many papers with just such mangled use of language, and it wasn't done purposefully.
Sharlyn Guthrie08/25/07
Clever!
