Come on Tuesday I Feel Better

Mutterings continued.

Well, the world premiere of Return of the King seems to have gone off ok. The odd one or two (some very odd) fans turned out to watch the slebs go by on the red carpet. There are a couple of reviews on Ain't It Cool News by some lucky bastards who have obviously seen it before the rest of us.

One of the exercises in last night's French class was to ask how many whatevers there were in a certain country and to respond appropriately. Partner and I ended up counting the number of people, sheep and hobbits in New Zealand. The sheep outnumbered the others, of course.

"An Australian lawn bowls team may have beaten the record for the longest game with a 57-hour marathon." There really are things more boring than watching paint dry.

"Johnny Rotten is among the names reportedly being lined up to appear in the new series of I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!" AKA Whining Around Australia.

"Britain's only modern martial art is be taught in the UK for the first time next year.

Defendo will be taught at the Royal Armouries museum in Leeds where actors will perform demonstrations of wartime combat techniques." DEFENDO?? What kind of a name is that for a martial art? Ecky Thump isn't being taught as it's an ancient Lancastrian martial art.
