“Sow (like a pig) in”

 

should've guessed you'd tell me to use the Irish pronunciation ahdn_george_06 I guess it's probably the most recognized. Hardly anyone speaks Scottish Gaelic. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

  

Gaelic is relatively similar to Irish, they’re like cousin languages. If I turn on BBC Alba and concentrate I can normally understand every 2nd or 3rd word which is enough to get the gist of the conversation.

The written system is completely different with Gaelic being more phonetically spelt than Irish. So, on the rare occasions I read Gaelic, I read aloud like a 4 year old.

Shout-out to Manx spoken on the Isle of Man that no one knows exist. Bit more difficult to understand than Gaelic but still comprehensible. The writing system is all gibberish to me though. It did go extinct in the 20th century but like all cool languages is making a comeback similar to Cornish. 

As for the other two Celtic languages, Breton and Walsh, I can’t make head nor tail of them. I met a Breton-speaking lad in Germany and tried to have a conversation with him- no hope.

I've got to my first Round 3 on a job campaign (shows I must be able to do those numerical and literacy tests- huzzah). I have to talk into a camera while a computer spits questions at me.....alright. The likelihood of me actually taking this job if I get it is low because it's in Dublin and like eww Dublin rents on graduate pay.

I'd rather work for a few years in a city that's not Dublin, get up the ladder and then go to Dublin (if I have to). I'm using them more as practice tests than actual career aspirations so I'm sorry HR people that have to view my dilly-dallying.

Happy update: The one actual job I would take if it was offered to me (rather than go straight into master's. I'd probably do 2 years of working with this crowd and hope the almighty overlords that run the company would pay for me to do my master's in exchange for me making them a million euro (because you know I totes can do that.... >.> ) had an email for Round 2 sent to me (which went straight to my bloody spam, thank you stupid email, it's not like I want employment). 

 

It's a tight ship to get into but you know there's hope...maybe hopefully...oh dear God please hire me!!!

Have just done the strangest job tests so far. I'll try and explain two of what I had to do:

1. I was shown for a second a highlighted dot on a board among a crowd of other dots. After that second, I would be shown a separate board and asked a question like "are these symmetrical- yes or no?". I would then be shown a second highlighted dot for a second, then another different board and this would go on about 5 times. At the end of the 5 rounds, I had to recall the position the dots were in it and in what order they came. 

I'd be lucky if I got one right, my brain doesn't work that way, folks.

 

2. I had to move a little red ball into a black hole in the fewest moves possible. There would be obstacles in my way that I would have to remove to get the ball into the hole and some of these would be unmovable objects. Basically testing me on my problem solving abilities, in 4 minutes I'd say I did 6 and I skipped one because I got myself trapped and couldn't move.

 

Either way, I'll be very lucky to get into the next round, the written and numerical stuff were fine but those two yokes?!?

Blimey, those are some bizarre tests. I hope for your sake you won't have to do any more of that

After the most insane period of shifts at work I can remember or have carried out, the worst is over (lots of illness etc). I am knackered.

When I went in to get my MRI, the attendant asked me what kind of music I wanted to listen to. I said Beatles if you got it. They played Get Back . That's such a head-banging song, but I had to remain still! I also got Here Comes The Sun . The MRI didn't take long enough. I wanted to hear more songs.

The guy said he didn't get many requests for classic rock  or Beatles anymore. I told him he should suggested to people. I could hear him talking to the next patient, and he suggested Beatles to her.

Cookies are a small file stored on your device, @50yearslate, that identify you to a website you have previously visited and agreed to accept cookies from.

It allows the website to personalise itself to you.

For instance, somebody who visits this website who has not joined up will get a "Welcome Guest" message (or something like, been a while since I saw it), while when I am here and not logged in I get:

cookie.jpgImage Enlarger

This is because the cookie on my laptop has sent a message to the server that holds Joe's website and identified me to the website.

Afraid I don't know how WHOA has changed (had to look it up to find out what it is).
