Don't get mad at your neighbors for Halloween.  Halloween gets one lousy day plunked in the early stages of Christmas mania.  And when you think about it, it's the only day of the year which encourages people to legitimately have fun, with no religious or family obligations.  If anything, October should be a month-long Halloween build-up, where people are allowed to enjoy life more and take less things so seriously.

Wow. Really can't keep up with this forum anymore. School is too time consuming. Hate that :(

Priorities, Linde -- this forum is far more important than school work!blue-meanie

:D :D Haha yeah, try explaining that to your teachers! I'm working loads more this year than last. And I've moved to a better school, which is much harder than I thought it would be :( I've left my best friend behind, that's the hardest thing.

I know how you feel, Linde, at least to a certain extent. I'm shattered gone 9, and usually I've got a good few hours work left at that point. Forget exercising as well. I rarely have time now to go out for a long period of time. Anything else school wants to get in the way of? My social life died a while back (though, tbh, it was never really that alive to begin with). There's a girl in my class who quite studies hard and goes to 1.30 hr dance class every day. Have no idea how she does that. blue-meanie

 

That's what I hate the most! The way my social life has decreased. Some friends I haven't seen for weeks and I try to see my best friends once a week, which I don't always manage. People are already telling me to give up my job, but I can't, because then I really can't finance everything anymore.

I can't believe how I'm reading hundreds of pages a day and still am far behind on everything.

Today I have a day off, and I just told myself to not do anything school-related.

We don't even celebrate Halloween in the Netherlands, unfortunately. Only themeparks get decorated and there's one that's in the middle of a village, and the village gets decorated as well and I think they actually do celebrate it there, but as for the rest of the country, I don't think so. They do show horrormovies on telly on the day itself though. Love it.

Ah well, we have Sinterklaas and Christmas so it's all good. Ridiculous that they already put up Christmas decorations indeed, it's September and it's still quite warm outside too. Doesn't really happen over here though, but I guess that's because we're stuck with Sinterklaas until the 5th of December.

parlance,

It just hit me that Paul is holding the microphone in your avatar pic. He isn't play his guitar. I don't know why that just seemed so strange to me at the moment. Carry on.

All,

When speaking do you tend to drop the "g" when saying words that end in "-ing"?

The Beatles were playin' and singin' a song about cryin', waitin', and hopin'.

I'm searching my memory trying to remember just who it was in my life that broke me from that habit.

I was forced to go to elocution lessons when I was a wee sprite hence I don't drop the ends of my words as much but one particular word is "that" I will "dat" "Where does that dat go" etc.  Also "debt" and "death" I only noticed recently that I pronounced "debt" as "death" I'm getting rid of it now though because I can't have a heavy accent if I ever want to work abroad and have to speak English or do voice-over work in English (I'm always rejected...a-hard-days-night-john-2) I'm from the "country"/culchie side of Ireland so heavy accents/slurring words are common place. The Connacht accent does not work in a Leinster accent  Ireland (Curse you Dublin!!! a-hard-days-night-paul-11)

Sorry about being late posting, didn't see your question!
Try witch hazel first if you aren't using it already! It worked on my brother's and I's skin and it's cheap!
Secondly I haven't noticed any side effects of it, seem to have a bit more energy actually! I'm actually awake for my last couple of classes in school which is a start a-hard-days-night-george-10

Haha, don't worry. :D

I have tried witch hazel but I found it dried my skin out a bit. Okay, more energy, that's good! I might try it for a bit then. One more question though, what do you do for breakfast? See I ran out of milk yesterday and I didn't know what to have as I always have cereal. Or do you use a substitute?

I used sweetened soya milk (bought in Lidl) but coconut and almond milk are other substitutes. I actually prefer soya to cow milk so I think I'll just continue drinking that, it doesn't go off as fast as cow's milk either :)

Does "go off as fast" mean that it doesn't expire as quickly?

^^So what countr(y)(ies) would I use that phrase in to sound like a local?

I threw a French waiter off once when I walked in held up 3 fingers the European way (with the thumb) and said "trois". When we then asked for an English menu, he knitted his brow very tightly. At least I had him fooled for a few moments.

Never knew holding up three fingers with the thumb instead of ringfinger is the European way. And I actually am from Europe.

Or maybe it's just not the way in Holland.

Never knew that either, never seen the thumb used in Scotland (unless they are shaped to resemble a gun).

Ireland anyways and I never do the "3 fingers with the thumb" way :/

 

Just after listening to Ram and now on The Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 while doing my history essay and project, great fun. I love when nobody else in the house a-hard-days-night-john-6

^^Well, humph. I learned it from my German mother-in-law (she's 75) and from Rick Steves. Is it an old custom that younger people don't do? 

And that's how the American gave himself away in "Inglorious Basterds".  :/

What gives? Oh, well. I've been led astray.

Okay, thanks for you help. I drink soya milk anyway so that should be fine :D
