Cross Road Blues

The fifth person, whomever he, she or it is, dropped out of my French class, thereby dragging all of us below the minimum required by the university to hold the class in the first place, thus, no class, thuser, my edumacation is at a crossroads and being a linguistic autodidact is for smartypants far above my pay grade.

So, unknown assailant on higher learning, may your eyes melt while you sleep and the runny, ocular goo stream down the angles of your skull, plugging up your ears and mouth with a concrete permanence. Good luck communicating in any language now, frog hater.

What, you thought I was going to bitch about Hussein X or M-16 toting lunatics or Michael Vick finding an employer? Like anyone with a quarter of an egg noodle didn't see that shit coming. So just listen to Robert Fucking Johnson and shut your piehole until I can come up with a better post. I could use the aeons of silence.

The three quarters of my person that is Sicilian wants to go out and wack somebody for you.
The one quarter Irish... wants to blow something up. :)

Move to Canada! We force you to learn French here! :)

But seriously.. ((bighugs)) This sucks. I hope that you can figure something else out or someone else turns up to take his/her spot in the class.


Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

That happened with my last french class too! I suspect un vast conspiration de gauche.



Übermilf said...

Ou est le w.c.?

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, you're much more violent than you let on. I'm thinking Lake Erie needs its own Atlantic wall.

As for the class, it's not the end of the world, I just like to complain. ;-)

tengrain, mais oui! C'est possible que nous ayons besoin de l'aide de Sarkozy!

übermilf, chez Glenn Beck.

Frederick said...

Thanks I needed that, some shivers on a hot day. More olde timey blues, please!

Dusty said...

Good taste in music randy Randal!

Sorry 'bout your Frenchie class, but you need to get yo ass in gear and fill up the Fantasy Football team dude!

Dr. Zaius said...

Can't you find another student? Maybe you could use that "weekend at Bernie's" guy. Just put him in the back.

mandt said...

I volunteer to be that imaginary, invisible student commodity. The spectacle agrees!

Holte Ender said...

Cream do a wonderful version of Crossroad.

Dean Wormer said...

Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil for musical talent.

Randal sold his own soul to the devil for poetic muse.

I see why you like the guy.

Demeur said...

Randal we always knew you had no class. That's why us low lifes come here.

Randal Graves said...

frederick, I hear you about the goddamn heat. I should throw up some more of the good stuff.

dusty, yeah, yeah, I know. I moved the draft to the 29th - man, the season starts late this year! I'll toss an angry sign up post soon.

dr.zaius, fine idea, but once I pass out from the fumes of rotting flesh, how can I learn?

mandt, problem solved! Thanks!

holte, yes they do. Skynyrd's from One Moer From the Road is pretty good as well.

dean, thanks for the kind words, but people will be listening to Robert Johnson in 1000 years - assuming we're not radioactive dust. No one will ever read my shit.

For such blasphemy, I sentence you to attend Robert Novak's funeral and speechify some hagiography in front of the assembled flock of lunatics.

Randal Graves said...

demeur, I cannot argue with your assessment.

Dusty said...

omg..lmfao..what Demeur said!

susan said...

Thank goodness for Don Law or nobody would ever have known about RJ.

Tom Harper said...

What, you're dithering over French classes and Robert Johnson while our country is under siege? Hussein X is still out there, still trying to bring America to her knees with his Death Panels and his army of Socialist Bureaucrats!

Spartacus said...

Bah. French is over-rated. Try something useful like Farsi or Pashtoon.

Beach Bum said...

Online university man, take a class where you can sit at your computer and listen to a lecture naked! Not that I ever done that...and gotten caught.

sunshine said...

Ooooo! I like Beach Bum's idea.
Did I mention french is mandatory in Canada? I could tutor you.... ;D
Voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir

Tee Hee....

Liberality said...

If you have the extra money, it might be worth moving to France. But I forget, you work in a fine profession that pays you handsomely, no? Sort of makes it so that you CAN'T leave.

S.W. Anderson said...

And from a jail came the wail of a downhearted frail, to wit: ". . . and shut your piehole until I can come up with a better post. I could use the aeons of silence."

So here we are, 18 comments and three responses later. So much for following simple directions, people. :)

Randal Graves said...

dusty, I hate when other people are right.

susan, that's a frightening notion.


spartacus, hell, given how they own nearly all of our stuff, how about Chinese?

BB, it is humid as hell.

sunshine, je ne peux pas repondre à toi au publique! Mon blog est saint! Alright, Frenchie, point out the 752 grammatical errors!

liberality, shhh! Don't give away the secret that the library arts pay on a scale that would make a big pharma CEO jealous!

SWA, I just can't trust these knuckleheads. ;-)

sunshine said...

Damn you Randal!!!
You KNOW it took me 5 years to pass grade 9 French!
