The Adventures of April

We shall not cease from exploration - And the end of all our exploring - Will be to arrive where we started - And know the place for the first time. -- T.S. Eliot

Four Things

1. In the U.S., we call small, tasty cakes wrapped in a paper cup a muffin and pretend it's healthy and acceptable to eat in the morning. Here is Peru, there is no denial. This morning (well, most mornings actually) I made my way down to the cafeteria for a little brunch. When I asked where was the bread that was usually out in the morning, they said oh, you mean the cake! Yes, "It's 9 AM and I'd like a large peice of cake, please."

2. Am I walking around with a sign on my forehead that says 'wink at me?' I feel like I've been getting winked at a lot lately. I think it's of the variety 'hey there, little lady!' and 'this is to signal that what I just said was witty,' so it's quite harmless, just perplexing.

But then again, I thought that one professor was winking at me and it turns out he just had a twitch. Maybe twitching is prevelant here in Peru.

3. Right now I am missing the Meeting House and Knox Pres in Toronto. It's so nice to walk into church and know most of the people there. I am for sure organizing a "Manzanas a Manzanas" (Apples to Apples) game night at my new church.

4. Whoever is able to make at least one substantial connection to Arrested Development in this post and writes a comment about it gets a prize!

Hi! So glad your site is not porn, I mean, "The Adventures of April" - I was a bit worried as I clicked on it! Though that winking thing is a bit suss ....

Hey weirdo stranger, that doesn't count as an Arrested Development link. No prize.

You can call you large piece of cake a muffin and I'll call my box of wine a "juice box." We are in denial.

(did it!)

Michael: "Don't ever do that again"
