Well kids, I do have our next mini Italian lesson almost ready for you, but I got this nasty cold that's taken away my voice and I can't record the audio files. But, I've been stuffing myself with cough syrup, a sickeningly sweet Chinese herbal concoction, various kinds of cough lozenges, honey and you name it, it's in my system, so I have good hopes that I will get enough of my voice back to record a few words before the week is over.
Tomorrow morning I am scheduled for an Accu Placement test at school and I have no clue about it. All I know is that it's a 90-minute test on math (insert colourful Italian expletives here), plus reading and writing quizzes. Oh well, no sense stressing out about it, right? Besides, between being groggy with the cold and medicines, I've also being in the zone listening to Portishead's Third, which is as close as I'll ever get to being stoned. I am sure this is the best way to prepare for tomorrow's test.
