Snow Day Announcement
This is the kind of school I teach in... Watch our new head of school, Mr. Necktie, and the assistant head/upper school director, Mr. Bowtie, as they tell us whether or not school will be in session. I hear the sweater is up for grabs at our annual Parents Council Auction to be held in March.
Bonne chance to the Ex-Ex as he scrapes the ice and snow off his car and tries to get to his office. Personally, I think he nuts. (Maybe he did not watch his colleagues rapping about Ice, ice, baby...) Not me. I intend to stay warmly ensconced in my pyjamas and watch La Fille du Puisatier, Marcel Pagnol's story of the well-digger's daughter, with Daniel Autueil speaking French with a Provençal accent. I watched Fanny and then Marius in the plane on the way back from France a couple of weeks ago. Have I ever said how much I love Air France? Well, I do! Champagne for apéritif and all the French movies I can watch in 8 1/2 hours! Here's the trailer to the movie. Just listen to his accent. I wonder if he is from Provence? I must google him and find out.
Bon appétit to my students who are still sleeping in instead of sitting in French class!
