grammar kills

my final exam in grammar tomorrow is (i wish i could say this in spanish) so going to kick my ass. i would be afraid but i´ve crossed over into the place beyond panic and hysteria. (did i use the subjunctive in that sentence?) my only consolation is that i will not be beaten alone...there will be other grammar casualties in the room. this shouldn´t comfort me, but somehow not have a body count of one makes me feel better.

today is mad study day. so i mustn´t dawdle here. just wanted to give you this update.

and also want to say that i ate fetal pigs´ feet last week. and, while i like to keep an open mind, i think i´ve fufilled my lifetime quota on eating anything unborn and cloven-hooved/hoofed [(?) must be that english-be-gone stuff they keep spraying on us]. yep.

finally, my presentation for practical communications has been moved to monday instead of tomorrow. praise the lord. praise allah. praise zeus.

still don´t know what i´m going to say...

I think it goes, "Me' finale examo es manana es so going to kicko me oho de culo" Even though you don't know me I' glad to help and will try to be of furthur assistance as you get closer to finals. One word of advice, don't swallow the hooves. They could make you gag and someone could misinterpret this as communiction.

okay, so i love the fact that y´all can post anonymously (since you´re all paranoid), but if you´re going to be all witty and stuff, at least give me a clue as to who you are...

I'm so proud you used "ya'll" in a sentence. You're trilingual!
