Sure, why not? And that would make Priya Yoko, I guess!

Richard Kiel (he who played Jaws in 2 James Bond movies) is a legend. Saw him on Soccer AM and was reminded just how fantastic he is as a person.

Got a sore throat and my tonsils feel furry. Hate days like this.

On a positive note, I've heard about a new McCartney dvd release titled Live Kisses. I take it it will be about the making of the album so I dunno whether I'll bother buying it.

I don't know if there are any fellow Villagers fans on this site, but Conor J. O'Brien just announced his new album--Awayland--is being released in January 2013! Discovering this news on the release date of Mumford and Sons' new album, Babel, has officially made this one of the best days EVERRR!!!

Oh my God. It's been a hell of a long time that I haven't been on this forum. I now realise that there is no longer a Math captcha you have to solve before you want to post a reply.

It's Abbey Road's anniversary today!!

So I'm celebrating by listening to this pure wondefulness.

And it is wonderful.

Andy Williams has sadly died at his home aged 84. A true musical great he was and had some absolutely amazing songs that brought so much joy and pleasure to millions and will stand the test of time. Let his music speak of his greatness.

Never heard his music ("Moon River" aside) or seen his TV specials, but I give him credit for discovering the Osmonds. RIP, dude.

Yip but im sure you did better than you think, thats what usually happend in these things. Just wait til the results come thru and see what you got and there is nothing you can do about it now so no point dwelling on it.

 

For my French Oral exam right at the beginning i proclaimed i knew no French and walked out. I got an E, the lowest grade possible aside from not turning up which was an F. Im quite proud of that.

I try not to dwell on it; but this is the first time in my life I have actually been doing well in math, so it's a bit discouraging that I may have not done so hot on my first test when I've been making really good grades on the rest of my assignments. But--hey--what can ya do? I was born with an English and art mind anyways. ahdn_george_08

Yip a very true French test story. I hated French right from the off and the teachers didnt help being snobby, uptight a-holes who looked down on you as if you were a piece of excrement for not daring not to know the French for "Do you know the way to Paris?" right from the off. You were immediately cast as either worthwhile subjects fortunate to linger in their warm glow or vermin not worth looking at.

I hate teachers who dont give a toss about pupils based on first class alone.

 

You may be surprised with the results as the mind knows more than we think and give it credit for, plus humans have a way of looking at exams badly. If you were good in the tests and quizzes im sure it would have manifested in the exam.

MMM's story reminds me of MY 8th grade French class, when the teacher gave Jason Smith (class clown/stoner) a phrase to translate and he replied "I dunno", to which she protested that if he didn't know, he should properly say so in French: "Je ne sais pas". So he filed that away in his memory; and later on when she asked a question of the class in general, he was the first one with his hand up, just so he could stand up and use his new phrase proudly proclaim his ignorance en francais! Hahaha. It pissed the teacher off, naturally; but when ISN'T a French teacher angry?

Has somebody done a cover of 'Come Together' recently? Yesterday I was out shopping and I heard it twice, which made me think that maybe it was from not very long ago. It was a female voice, that's all I know.

You guys are starting to make me reconsider what foreign language I'm going to take in the next couple of years. Since I'm going into the Peace Corps for a couple of years after I graduate, I'm going to have to learn either Spanish (to work in South America) or French (to work in Africa). I was leaning more towards French so I could use my handy skills on a vacation to France once my work with the Peace Corps was finished; but if the majority of French teachers are actually like that, I'm not so sure I would want to deal with one for two years... a-hard-days-night-john-7blue-meaniea-hard-days-night-john-7

My French teacher isn't like that so they can't all be.

She's just mad.

Once last year, somebody in my class cut their finger and because they were talking about it instead of listening to what the teacher was saying, she ran out of the class and up the corridor screaming ''Somebody call an ambulance. She's going to die of blood loss!''

I'm not joking.

Im sure there are some very nice French teachers, there must be.

 

However here's a true story. Was in a Foundation French class (the lowest rung possible) at school about 16/17 years ago and there was This Boy who had been off for 2 to 3 weeks for some legit reason but didnt particulary like French and so there was a tension between him and the female teacher (her mentioned above who seemed to hate anyone who couldnt speak French). We are having a revision class where the teacher would go around asking you questions which you had to answer in French having learnt the replies but the guy hadnt been in so didnt have a clue what the answers were to the questions. The teacher didnt believe he didnt know them and refused to believe he had been off and it got into a heated arguement, at first between the two but quickly with some other pupils who backed him up that he had been absent however the teacher still refused to listen. This went on for about 10 minutes before the teacher stormed out, got the Head French Teacher to take over, and refused to teach the class again.  

 

One of the highlights of the year that was. brian-epstein
