You know it must be nice to be royalty in the UK. If you fail to get into a uni you can just get daddy to get you into somewhere else for rich people, like good old Harry doing an officers training course at Sandhurst military academy. I wonder how much of this came from the old boys network? Still i guess we would all do the same if we were him and needed to get to the money quick lol. Nice though to see his documentary on AIDS in Africa is going to be shown and hopefully will raise the plight of the people there even more. Maybe they will expose the total failure of the churches there, especially the Catholic church is helping to try to keep AIDS from spreading. Luckily for us Brits, the UK hasnt been a religious country for over 100yrs otherwise they would all be standing by twiddling their thumbs as we got wiped out too :-( Sad but true, i`m afraid.
Yesterday was spent mounting a new antenna on the roof, man it was fucking hot. I couldnt only stay out there for a little time and even now i am still a little pink from getting cooked just a bit. Now i have around 6-8 channels to watch, not that i watch lots of tv but just for odd times when theres nothing to do and Roberta isnt with me. Still they have some stuff in English on tv, Sienfeld and Will & Grace, i like to watch them with my students if one of them remembers to video it. Its good practice for them, listening and i try to hide the legends sometimes so they cant always just read in portugues. Maybe later on i`ll get a big dish, they told me i can get lots of free channels but really i want the dish so i can shove it around to another sat instead. I`ll have to check this out and see what we can pick up from here. It`ll depend how good a view my dish gets of the sky but with two meters i hopefully should be able to get something.
Wow. my students are already here, i`m impressed hahaha! I`d better go i guess and get ready to give class..
