*loves her new icon*
*insert silly and unrealistic comparisons between David Tennant and Sean Connery here*

The ABC finally confirmed they got the screening rights to TCI and the next series of Doctor Who. And about bloody time, too. Now, if only they'd give us an airing date...

Also, Matt Lucas and David Walliams are on Parky next week. *squee!*

Got an two Italian language phrasebooks and a CD today to practice with today. Advantage of learning Latin is that my pronounciation isn't too bad with the Italian. I must learn to stop swapping between church Latin and classical Latin when I'm speaking though. Choose one way to pronounce the words and stick with it, self! Also, buy a more comprehensive dictionary/study book when I prepare to learn it in earnest, instead of just for touristy purposes.

Blackadder: Do you speak any English?

Frou Frou: A little...

Blackadder: Yes, when you say 'a little', what exactly do you mean? I mean, can we talk? or are we going to spend the rest of the afternoon asking each other the way to the beach in very loud voices?

Frou Frou: Ah, no. I can, ah, order coffee, deal with waiter, make sexy chit-chat with girls -- that type of thing.

Blackadder: Oh, good.

Frou Frou: Just don't ask me to take a physiology class or direct a light opera.


~Blackadder III, 'Nob and Nobility'


Somehow, it just seemed appropriate.

Current Mood: pleased pleased

I will always remember that I was drinking a can of Pepsi at that moment first time I heard it, and nearly sprayed a mouthful of the stuff everywhere, while at the same time some of it going up my nose. Ah, BA. good times.
