Most of the parents of the children I work with do not speak English. This can make it a little awkward, when I'm sitting in their homes & working with their kids. I wish I had taken Spanish in college. I thought it would be "cool" and unique to take French, because everyone takes Spanish. Plus, I couldn't roll an R if you put a gun to my head. Pathetically, the only thing I remember from that class is how to pronounce DVD in French (day-vay day). Now I'm sure someone who speaks fluent French is going to pop up and tell me that is wrong. So go on, try to tell me how you really pronoucne DVD, and you will just confirm that I wasted two years of my life that I CAN NEVER GET BACK. lol.
In other news, last weekend Adam and I went to a taping of Jeopardy! We love us some jeopardy, I've even wrote about the show on here before. We are a very competitive household, and we scream out the answers and keep score. Don't let the haters fool you, winning is everything. We are both equally good, but he claims that I always lose because I don't phrase my answers as questions.Pfft, that is foolishness I tell you. FOOLISHNESS. Not only did we get tickets to Jeopardy, but we found out that it was Celebrity Jeopardy. When we got there, we saw Christopher Meloni from Law & Order SVU, Joshua Molina from The West Wing & In Plain Sight, and Harry Shearer from The Simpson's. I immediately thought of Miss. Heather because I know what a big SVU fan she is. All I can say is they were all really funny and charming guys.
Of course, the most exciting thing was getting to see Alex Trebek! In between breaks, he talked to the audience and Adam got to ask him a question. I believe this is the single most amazing thing that has ever happened to Adam (forget our marriage!). He kept saying, "I talked to Alex Trebek! I talked to Alex Trebek!" When I was on the phone with someone, he would say,"Did you tell them I talked to Alex Trebek?" "Tell the people on facebook, that I talked to Alex Trebek." It was seriously cute and kind of annoying. So by the way, did you hear Adam talked to Alex Trebek?

This all reminded me of a joke by Mo'nique from her Queens of Comedy tour. Mo’nique jokes about a time that she entered a club and some catty girl remarked, "I bet she’s going straight to the buffet." And Mo'nique commented, “It was true, but that bitch didn't have to say that shit!"
HAHA, that is my favorite joke. I talk about my work orientation, how awesomely serendipitous is that!
