What the heck is smarty pig?

No, I'm not asking for charity. :) But it would be Smarty pig is the only way I can save money.....when it's taken away from me. It's pretty cool, it calculates how much you have to save per month to reach your goal. I recently upped my goal. I was at 65%, but I realized I needed to start saving more if I'm really going to move. Anyways, use smarty pig- they're the best. And no they aren't paying me to say so. :D

In other news we started french class last week. The orientation was boring, as will be the next couple of weeks until we get past the basics, or at least I expect them to be. Gideon seems to be an enthusiastic teacher, I hope he's hard on us. ;) J'aimerais parler français!

Also- I just bought a Pablo Neruda poetry book. It's fabulous, has simultaneous translation. Spanish on one side of the book and english on the other. I love poetry, always have. Yet I think I love it even more in spanish. After learning spanish and some french I can tell you english is neither beautiful nor descriptive. So check out Neruda, he's good even when translated to english.

    Anywho, congrats on French class. let me know how it's coming along. I've been reading culinary books like mad and a lot of them reference Escoffier or Carême in French. They knew what they were doing.
