Very bored in the library. Might go home for a cherry bakewell soon.
this is not me
Today's gripe is the way that, on Windows, my Favourites are called Favorites. Annoying.
I think I have started to become a Grumpy Old Man
But at least most programs have a UK English dictionary to install. I rarely ever find a Canadian English dictionary to check my spelling against; I'm all over the place with my spelling.
I couldn't resist :)
so there are "u"s in "colour" and "labour" and "neighbour".
but we to the American "z"s for things like "socialize" and "recognize".
it's "tire" vs. "tyre"...after that things are all over the place.
"travelling", "cancelling", etc.
US - "traveling, "canceling".
Yup, it's in the Banal thread for a reason. :)
There are a bunch more.
i might need an encyclopedia, too...
A tyre on a car

makes me think that there's something seriously wrong with my insides the next day though.
I assumed my insides were bleeding out and I was dying. Was so shocked and scared I told my parents expecting them to rush me to hospital. Naturally they found (and still find) it hilarious, konwing how much beetroot I'd eaten. I was too relieved to not be bleeding out of my anus to be embarrassed, but time rectified that balance.
The only thing I won't touch.
fucking awful stuff
I like the haircut but at the moment it draws far too much attention to the curve of my forehead.
I really want to go home.
