You might forget that I'm actually over here as a teacher, and that's an easy mistake because I sometimes forget that, too. Especially when I fly in for two days, and then we hit the road for four. So today was my first day of actual teaching. And I enjoyed it! We hold class in the students' flats. They have two nice front rooms, so Kate takes one and I take the other. It's fun to teach here. We see shows and then we get to discuss them. We pull them apart and decide what worked and what didn't; it's a great way to learn and I wish I could translate this experience to the Orem campus. But I can't, and so my second wish is that all of the theater students there could come here. It's pricey for them, I know. But there's nothing quite like it! It's education on a whole different level.
In between classes I needed to run to the High Street to buy a new phone, and Nick came with me. While we were waiting at the bus stop he started talking like this girl:
And that was all it took. I have been talking like that for the rest of the day.
"Lerts terk the nermber nern burs to Hermmersmerth!"
"Merterlder! Mer fervoret mersical! Bersed on the berk ber Roald Derhl!"
That kind of thing. Trust me, it never stops being funny to me, and never stops being irritating to everyone else. But I honestly have been talking that way for about ten hours.
But I'm not the only one getting into it! This flautist had really crazy eyes.
The exhibit was only one room, but there was plenty more to see! I loved these awesome photographic cutups of films stars from the golden age:
