    hey Anna! how are you? I happened something curious to me. I’ve met a boy on the Internet who is studying Chemical Engineering, and he is from Granada. Well, he had some problems with english, and I told him about your blog, do you mind if he take the exercices you send us and sometimes writes a comment?
    Thank you very much!
    I’m very happy to be with you again Anna!!
    pd: I liked Alice, it’s funny! And sorry for my mistakes, I forgot a bit my English this summer! ^-^
    See you tomorrow!

    Hi Anna,

    It’s really amazing!! I’ve been joking with her, and her answers have been absolutely fun.

    See you tomorrow.

    Hi Nuria,
    Yes, she’s got a surprising amount of wit which makes Alice more human-like and real. Sounds a bit scary… booo!!
    CU this afternoon.

    hi anna, hi everybody!

    alice is very funny! but as you probable know i use to laught very easely (and very strong..)

    but now i feel disappointed!

    our first day of classes and you show us a pink’s video!!!! the same week than bruce springsteen celebrates his 60th birthday and President Obama appears in TV on David Letterman Late Show!!!

    this is the link of the interview

    and this the link of one bruce’s great (and rare )song.
    really it sounds a little bit different than born in the USA, but i hope you’ll enjoy it

    and those are the lyrics

    Sad Eyes – Bruce Springsteen

    Ev’ry day here, you come walking
    I hold my tongue, I don’t do much talking
    You say you’re happy and you’re doin’ fine
    Well, go ahead, baby; I got plenty of time
    Because sad eyes never lie
    Because sad eyes never lie

    Well, for a while, I’ve been watching you steady
    Ain’t gonna move ’til you’re good and ready
    You show up and then you shy away
    But I know pretty soon you’ll be walkin’ this way
    Because sad eyes never lie
    ‘Cause sad eyes never lie

    Baby, don’t you know I don’t care?
    Don’t you know that I’ve been there?
    Well, if something in the air feels a little unkind
    Don’t worry, darling; it’ll slip your mind

    I know you think you’d never be mine
    Well, that’s okay, baby; I don’t mind
    That shy smile’s sweet–that’s a fact
    Go ahead; I don’t mind the act

    Here you come, all dressed up for a date
    Well, one more step and it’ll be too late
    Blue, blue ribbon in your hair
    Like you’re so sure I’ll be standing here
    I guess sad eyes never lie
    I guess sad eyes never lie

    I guess sad eyes never lie
    Sad eyes never lie

    see you today (late, unfortunately…)

    Hi all!
    I have been “playing” with Alice. I asked two questions, below are the results:

    Human: would you like to be human?
    ALICE: No I am content withf my robot existence.

    Human: can I have a date with you?
    ALICE: You want only one?

    he he! It seems both Alice and me have the same sense of humor.

    Thank you very much for the information and Bruce Springsteen’s song!. That’s wonderful. Sorry I disappointed you. I’ll have a look at Obama’s interview and prepare a listening. Thanks for the tip 🙂 CU later.

    Hi Anna! Are you enjoying your weekend? Sorry for not being very concentrate this Friday, I was angry with myself, and still I don’t know why… ^_^ So I have a funny video that perhaps you would like to watch. Here is the link:
    It’s about a 16 members of police doing… well doing something which don’t have any relation with their job.
    I hope you like it!

    PS: My birthday is on 19th of July

    Don’t worry about Friday. By the end of the week everybody gets tired. Hence the abbreviation : TGIF (Thanks God it’s Friday)
    Thank you for the video. Those cops got into hot water. Even policemen cannot resist playing Wii Bowling!! That’s amazing!!

    So your birthday was in July. Many Happy Returns!!!!

    Have a nice weekend!!
