Ok... so after some contemplation, I think I'll just post the same thing here that I post on MySpace. So here it be:
We have a French guy staying with us! For how long? Not sure. His name is Mathieu (I think that’s how it’s spelled) and last night he educated us on some of the differences between English, French and some other languages, differences in some transportation, school, television and a few other things. Mathieu apparently got a taste of university bureaucracy in America… he was given the run-around when dealing with having his tuition already paid for by his school in France. He was sent from office to office and stood in lines only to end up back where he started, and the first lady he talked to made a phone call that fixed everything. Why she didn’t just make the call the first place was beyond him, but as Chase said, that’s university bureaucracy for ya.
