This week has been rather relaxed. I packed my bags for the Scheldecross race tomorrow (Friday) in Antwerpen and for our departure the following morning for Nommay, France for the next world cup on Sunday. It is a six hour drive to Nommay so I am partly excited for the roadtrip since i'll get to practice my limited French and buy authentic french baguettes in the gas stations. But it is still a long time in a car. Maybe I will rotate those same six cd's that jonas and i have been listening to on roadtrips for the last year. We are also taping a few movies on the TV tonight since I can't bear to hear Al Pacino or Leo Di Caprio speak french.
I also got a new book today - YIPPEE!! It is Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I think they just made a movie about it. Normally I dont read blockbusters but my friend Karen gave me a book called New Moon on her last trip here. There arent many places to buy english books so i read it, only to find out that it is the second book of a four-book series. Shoot. Now i have to read the first book (Twilight) to get the answers to assumptions made in the second book, and also must find out how it all ends. Luckily, there is a British shop down the block so I ordered the rest of the books.
Well, i gotta get to my book now. My next post should be by monday or tuesday. Fingers crossed that i will have good results to write about - or at least good stories!
Have a great weekend!
