ants in my pants

I'm currently staying at a friends's house and almost everything about it is great. Almost everything. The only bad thing is/are the ants.(What is the correct verb form there? I'm an English teacher and I don't know)  There are ants everywhere. they are on the floor, on the table, in the bathroom, and in the kitchen. When I sit on the couch, like I'm doing now, they crawl on me. I've become a serial ant killer during my stay here at Casa de Chan.

In Djibouti news, the BBC has a story about the US involvement in Djibouti. Its not all smiles & butterflies.

6 more days till I leave. I check in everyday to see if I can start correcting exams but no. It appears that someone else will have to grade them since I'm leaving in 6 days. Oh well. Its not like I didn't tell them or haven't been to the university every single day to see if they're ready yet. Such is life in Djibouti. 


  1. Is. The subject is "thing" which is singular so you need the singular verb. Wow, I am such a nerd. :)
