Remarkably clean conversation for most of this morning! I'm trying to do housework and be productive while I postwhore it up.

Varitek's gone to get drunk in a toga that would make for good boobsketball.

No wonder it's clean conversation. I haven't been here. Nor has Jen.

It was a short series on the ABC here last year. Parody of Aussie high school life. One guy played three roles - gay drama teacher, stuck-up private school girl (not very well, mind you), and a Pacific Islander. Brief moments of hilarity, too many moments of "thank fuck I'm out of high school now".

Oh, i believe i passed. Rather comfortably too.

What a shame i can't remember much of it now.


I ended up slacking off in German just because my class pissed me off and our textbooks turned shithouse in grade 11. I still came second overall. Rock the fuck on.

The travel agent was plum out of tickets for flights to Memphis or Geelong. Apparently, SeattleVertigo and Cori purchased the last of each. *scratches head* I guess I missed something.

I have a book called "The Adventure of English" ... read it. It's all about how English has developed from what was spoken by the Frisians who settled in the Brisith isles after the Romans left, through Danish and French invasions, and all that drama with translating the Bible into English, and Martin Luther's thing in Germany, and Chaucer and Shakespeare, to where the language is at in all the countries where it's spoken today.

I say again,

Hey tourist

It was actually Americans who first tried to impose standard spellings on words... with a few hiccups. Things were still pretty random in the UK at that time...

I bailed on French just before we had to start taking it seriously. I thought i can bullshit through it at this "practice" level but in terms of it being part of any serious high school qualification? Fuck no!

In grade 8-10, we had these really good textbooks. They had great cartoons that introduced concepts and were remarkably useful. But then we moved onto crappy, dull, hard-to-follow textbooks from a different series for years 11-12. Apparently the later textbooks in the series we started on were "too adult". Knowing my school, that probably just meant two of the characters were boyfriend and girlfriend and vague allusions to that were made once or twice in the text.

Though maybe Tourist wrote it and they were playing each others' guitars. Screwtape, be thankful you've no idea what I'm talking about there.

THAT BOOK IS AWESOME. I read it a few years ago. The TV series equivalent of it was recently on the ABC. I caught the first episode and then promptly forgot about it. Ooops.

OK, I could have sworn the first dictionary was done in England.
