Obama's Perfect English!

Obama's Use of Complete Sentences Stirs Controversy

Stunning Break with Last Eight Years
In the first two weeks since the election, President-elect Barack Obama has broken with a tradition established over the past eight years through his controversial use of complete sentences, political observers say.

Millions of Americans who watched Mr. Obama's appearance on CBS' "Sixty Minutes" on Sunday witnessed the president-elect's unorthodox verbal tick, which had Mr. Obama employing grammatically correct sentences virtually every time he opened his mouth.

But Mr. Obama's decision to use complete sentences in his public pronouncements carries with it certain risks, since after the last eight years many Americans may find his odd speaking style jarring.

According to presidential historian Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota, some Americans might find it "alienating" to have a President who speaks English as if it were his first language.

"Every time Obama opens his mouth, his subjects and verbs are in agreement," says Mr. Logsdon. "If he keeps it up, he is running the risk of sounding like an elitist."

Weekend In Milan

Saturday market fruit and veggiesLast weekend I went to Milan to visit my wonderful friend Gita and see a little more of Italy. So I really feel like the universe wanted me to go on this trip because my flight was at 2:55 on Friday from Gatwick and when I got to Victoria Station at 1pm I realize that I have forgotten my passport at home. So to get my passport I have to get back on the tube up to Kings Cross, get a cab to my house and then have him drop me off at the Highbury and Islington Tube so I can take the victoria line back down to Victoria station then take Gatwick Express the 30 minutes to the airport. This journey entails me going from North London to South of London to get to the airport.

Worst Review Ever

Jerry - I would love it if your next review could be as scathing as this one.

Front page of the Guardian Sunday. My favorite line is:

"£10 worth of wok-fried salt and pepper calamari and frog's legs was leathery, greasy and unrelenting. The only contrast came from the frog's legs, which promised a little light haemorrhage as the hidden bones punctured your mouth."

Ouch. The full review which I have to say is very amusing is here to read.

Once you get past the crappy music from some band called "The Fray," the trailer has a bunch of scenes from the new season.

So this guy Shane Mercado made a video in his bedroom doing the dance from Beyonce's new song Single ladies. And it is amazing in many ways. He is a great dancer, outfit - is another thing. And now over a million people have watched it and now he making the rounds on the talk shows. He was on the Bonny Hunt show this week.

Of course I only know any of this because of Dlisted.com which I think might be the only site I go to on a daily basis besides MB.com

Here is the original version. 

Him on Bonny Hunt. (they won't let you embed)

Wales - South Africa Rugby Match

Wales - South Africa Rugby Match A few weekends ago I was lucky enough to go to the Wales vs. South Africa Rugby match in Wales. I had to be at Paddington by 9am on saturday and we got on the train for the 2 hour ride down. It was super packed with people - standing room only on the train and everyone was really nice and happy and friendly excited to go to the game. I ended up luckly with a seat and was next to a really nice South African guy who told me the rules of the game and which players to watch.

We got to Cardiff and went to lunch and there were so many people on the street and the best part was you paid someone a pound and got them to do a little face painting. I got a South Africa rugby mascot on my face. It was funny. 

Went into the millenium stadium and it was packed! 74,000 people and we had really great seats behind the goal. The game is only 90 minutes and it was fun throughout, I was getting it by the end what was going on. Rugby players are HUGE guys. And they just get wrecked at every play. It was really fun to watch.
