Featuring Canaille

Not much going on here these days. After tomorrow, only 4 weeks of classes left for the semester and I only have one more lesson to prepare. December is going to be so easy. Except for all the correcting of recordings and tests.

The weather was actually very sunny and warm these past few days, but I was stuck inside at work the entire time. Oh well, the clouds and rain will be back soon and I’ll be happy to be stuck inside with the heat.

Thanksgiving is next week and I’m trying not to think about it. At least I don’t have to work. But I don’t know if that will make me feel better or worse…

I’m off to watch RAI or listen to Warum Nicht podcasts. And since I have nothing interesting to say: cat pictures!

Stretch to the left!

I shall wait until you look away before I start digging.

This chin scratcher is excellent. (He either rubs his face on it or sleeps on it. Never scratches it with his claws.)

Why is no one rubbing my belly?

I fit on this thing quite comfortably, actually.

    sprinkle some catnip on the cardboard scratcher – it got my cat to start using it (for actual scratching)…

    awww Jennie I love your cat! He’s so big and soft like mine. I don’t know why fat cats love being on their backs so much..Noé will stretch out anywhere and I usually end up tripping over him. I’ve never bought one of those cardboard scratchers but I’m not sure Noé would use it if I did..he’d probably just rub all over it like Canaille!
    P.S. So jealous of your work schedule…I’m gonna be running around like crazy til at least Xmas :(

    I love this cat! I can’t wait to meet him/her. I have a long haired snoshoe siamese you’ll meet one day (although he’s a bit shy). I also have a short haired siamese. He likes people and requires tummy rubs. Cynthia in Chambery

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
