Poisson D'Avril!

Today my blog is officially 1 week old! Also, it's April fool's day or Poisson D'Avril (fish of April). This dates back to the 16th century when Charles IX, followed the Gregorian Calendar, decreed Jan 1st as New Year's Day, rather than April 1st (Solstice). Those who didn't follow the new calendar were called "fools" and sent invitations to fake parties and the like. ( I bet you didn't know I was so smart-- It's amazing what you can learn from the 'net ) French children fool their friends by taping a paper fish to their friends' backs. Those crazy frenchies! Seriously though, I'm a total francophile. (Thank you, Gina for that word, it totally suits us!)

Also this weekend I purchased a laptop. I feel it is my patriotic duty to stimulate the economy. This way I can blog... I mean do my homework...from my bed! That was a MAJOR selling point for me. I'm SUPER excited and got a great deal from Dell through the IUN student website. The estimated ship date on it is April 8th and I cannot stand it! 7 whole days. Here's a picture of what it will look like.
Isn't it pretty? Doesn't it remind you of spring?

Macs are great if you have $3K to spend on a logo.
