So I've been playing with a new online picture editor I was pointed to and... well, these are the results... What do people think? It's slightly spammy, as lots of them are quite similar and only really differ in fonts etc, but WE, I had fun :D
I wasn't going to answer until I looked at some others and saw two questioning when England celebrated its independence, which is even more disheartening when I realise that both respondants appear to be English.
See, here's the thing. We don't celebrate independence, because you're all celebrating independence from us. If anything, we spend your independence days in the pub plotting how to get world domination again.
In other news, we had room inspections today, which are fucking ridiculous! They told me my surfaces were supposed to be kept tidy. I'm sorry, I'm in the middle of exams, and you don't think I should have folders or paper on my DESK? Also, what does it matter?! I get some of the stuff they said could cause actual damage, MAYBE, like my sink (don't ask), but why does it matter if the surfaces are tidy?! Grr.
Textbook: "While both mass and count nouns can occur after the definite article, only count nouns can appear as headwords after an indefinite article"
Brain: "Huh. Isn't it wierd that when referring to the definite article, people almost always use the definite article, and when referring to the indefinite article, people almost always use an indefinite article?"
( Collapse ) So that was essentially most of the update, but I'll now try and summarise the notes from the conference! ( Collapse )
I realise that not all of this is comprehensible, but since it's been so long since the conference, it's harder to translate my notes into real thoughts! If you want something explaining, I'll give it a go :) This is now almost certainly the second to last post from my Rwanda diary. In fact, it's the last post, but there were thoughts I had during the last few days which I ended up writing up for a talk I did, so I'll probably just transcribe that within the next few days. Hopefully I'll get around to it soon, but lectures start tomorrow! (Me = Excited!)
