Au revoir

It’s nearly 3am and I’m still thinking about my French class. As [blogged previously](http://vantan.org/archives/2008/03/la_francaise.php), I meant to start at an easier level but due to a scheduling mistake by Alliance Francaise, I was put in a more difficult class than I wanted to be in.
