Yes, yes, I know I said I was taking a break, I wouldn't blog again in January etc etc. And that really was my intention my friends, but last night I saw a video. Oh no - not just any video. A video that might just be the greatest thing I've ever seen.

And I knew I had to blog about it. Because:

a) If I don't, I'll regret not showing my loyal readers
b) I I don't, Vole will see it very soon and put it on his blog instead
c) It's awesome, m'kay?

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls. Courtesy of the splendid Ken Tremendous (you checked out yet? If not, why not?) here is the video:

I know it's 16 minutes long, but, trust me. Watch this. NOW.

And remember, this was done by Yale themselves. Not Harvard, as a joke. Yale.


EDIT - It's not fucking working isn't it? Oh, for God's sake.

Here is the URL if that video isn't working for you:

Something To Tide You Over

Hello folks. I'm taking some time out from the internet at the moment, so this will probably be my last blog entry in January. Stop the tears, please.

Something on my stat-porn just caught my eye and made me laugh though, and thought I'd share it with you all. Some chap from Holland visited a particular entry, and then ran the page through an English/Dutch translation website. Yes, I can see your Exit Pages. Anyway, the results of these translations are quite amusing.

The first bit of my "About Me" section now reads as:

Ik ben een aarzelen, egoïstisch, sarcastisch nerd. Ik ben licht geobsedeerd met Ana Ivanovic, Dido en Manchester United.

And how about some of the blog titles that are on my blog list?

"What rhymes with Lauren, apart from the word foreign?" now becomes "Wat rijmt met Lauren, afgezien van het woord buitenland?"

"Ramblings of a half-hearted optimist" now becomes "Ramblings van een halfslachtige optimist"

"Cynical Ben" now becomes "Cynisch Ben" which sounds so much better.

And "Sue's Blog" now becomes............................. "Sue's Blog".

Thankyou, Dutch friend!
