aéropostale

I may not be that interested in archaeology, but at least it gives me some interesting news to share with my family when we talk over the phone: Oh, yeah, we found some obsidian cores today, a few chert flakes, lots of straw, and the jawbone of a pig ... yes mom, a pig.

The university is sponsoring another Up All Night activity today; considering what happened at the last one it might be in my best interest to stay at home tonight. I also have three anthropology exams next week, but since this is the start of the weekend I'm worried that my housemates will stay up later than normal and make enough noise to keep me from studying or sleeping well over the next three nights. The guy living in the room next to mine is particularly bad with this, as it's been seven months now and I still have to remind him every other week that the house 'quiet time' starts at midnight on weeknights. I heard that he flunked out of the university ... maybe that's made him bitter?

I stopped by the post office earlier but arrived ten minutes after they close for the day. I was hoping to mail a card to Australia, and rather then make a second trip tomorrow I decided to attach six stamps to the front in the hope that would be enough. With more than $2.00 in postage affixed to the upper corner of the envelope it ought to be sufficient to pay for a trip across the Pacific Ocean.

Strasbourg pulled off a win away to les Verts last weekend; hopefully they can do the same at home against Lille this Saturday.

quelle coincidence! i'm sending a package off to Oz tomorrow. I think two bucks is more than sufficient, having just checked at usps.com. :)

2 bucks?!?!
It was 70 cents to send a card to indonesia when I was in the states. I assume one to aussie should cost that different since both countries are neighbors to each other.

Re: 2 bucks?!?!
I think standard international stamps are 80 cents, but it felt like one of those "better safe than sorry" situations. If I stop by on Monday do you think I can ask for a refund? ;)

The postal service also raised domestic rates back in January, so none of my stamps are for the right amount anyway ...

You're following the French soccer championship? 0__O

Yes, for several years now. Should I be following the Belgian Jupiler League instead? ;)

Oh well, I wouldn't recommend it, but then again I don't like soccer...

There's a huge scandal of bribery in our soccer at the moment, so... I'll just say "watch tennis" ;)

I kept with the French league when a scandal erupted over false passports, so I don't think that would be enough to dissuade me from following the Jupiler league. However, in all honesty Belgian soccer doesn't appeal to me all that much - I might check on how PSV are doing every now and again, but that's about it. :P

Ouch, how embarrassing!
Beveren is from Belgium, right?

Beveren, yes... and it sounds a bit similar, it's still Dutch-speaking places, so don't be embarrassed!

Yes, but coming from someone who prides himself on being a geographically-savvy American that was a horrible mistake. Maybe I was thinking of GBA instead? :P

For an American, you're doing well, I swear... many of those I met didn't even know where Belgium was.
