Failure to Send

          I'm going to start this post with a sigh, ready?


          Right, now that that's out of my system I'll explain where it came from.
          Early last week I confirmed that I was taking a weekend off from immersion language-learning by going up to Holland to visit a friend. Just for the record, that idea was brilliant, and the weekend was epic. What was less than brilliant was that I pushed off writing my blog post until the very last moment. Although in my defense... if your options are packing vs. writing a blog post, I strongly suggest you choose packing. Anyway, I'm fairly certain I pasted the blog into the window, but exited the window and shut it down before clicking 'publish'.

As my apology, please accept this photo. Cutest. Windmill. EVER!
          Basically what it boils down to is that I was all excited to write you up a fun blog post on the wonders of Holland (specifically Amsterdam, bicycles, Rotterdam, police horses, and windmills) following Friday's hilarious post (which covered a stunning exchange of French, Canadian English and UK English translation on erasers and pregnancy); only Friday's post has disappeared into internet netherspace, and that's sad.
          New plan! I'm going to break Holland into two posts (Monday, Wednesday) and on Friday we'll be back to eraser shavings and pregnancy (because really, that's a story worth knowing). In theory that means this whole inconsistent posting thing will start to right itself.
          In the meantime, here's a picture of Michael the Archangel (... ok I'm fairly certain that's who the tour guide said he was) slaying a dragon, on top of an elephant's head, between two doors in Amsterdam. Amsterdam, you definitely get points for originality.
