I thought it was kinda cool to get a comment to my previous post from BBC World Service radio:

Dear Sir, I work for BBC World Service radio in London and in our programme, World Have Your Say, today (Friday 17th August) between 1300 to 1500 East Coast Time in the US we will be talking about the suggestion by the Dutch Archbishop that Christians should call God Allah, and were wondering if the author of Jehovah's new name would be interested in taking part in our programme. Please call me on +447751727964 or +442075570635 or email your phone numbers and I will call you straight back.

Alas, I won't be calling in (thanks all the same, BBC, but I'm tired and I don't think my insights are all that special), as I'm about to leave the office and hit the sack. Then I'll go to bed. (FYI, BBC, I'm in Seoul, Korea.)

The Level 2 magazine is shaping up. It's kind of a mixed bag; some students did a bang-up job while others left me a ton of work to do. The Ones haven't even finished their cover design, so I don't know whether we'll even bother publishing the thing. Will have to think harder about how to organize this sort of class next time. The magazine project worked well with my very advanced Level 4 intensive students two semesters ago, but not so well with the Ones and Twos this time around. I don't think the issue is language ability, however; the problem is motivation.

And on a completely unrelated note:

Tonight... we dine... IN SAN DIEGO!!
