About me

Contrary to what its URL may suggest, this blog isn't about being French. It's just about... stuff.

My last attempt at a blog started with marveling over discovering English culture. The last entry is about how I went to the A&E with a friend and her baby and he had diarrhea all over me. So it isn't like I have a great track record. We'll have to see how it goes.

A few of the things I care about (in no particular order)

Deaf Studies
Sign Languages
Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC)

Things that scare me

People who take themselves very seriously scare me.
I'm not too fond of spicy food.
When I try to be funny and no one realises.
I'm afraid I can be slightly inconsistent in my use of punctuation.

Things that don't scare me

I enjoy using bottled ink.
Sometimes I don't finish my sentences, and I don't mind.
I can listen to the same song over and over again for days.
