Tuesday Tidbits

"Din'nae 'Och!' at me, Geordie!"

--Jean scolding Geordie for making a sound of impatience.
[This is to be said in your strongest most guttural Scottish burr!]


My Life as a Child

The videodiaries of three 9-year old girls. I love the way they see the world. I love the way they express themselves. I love being impressed by their outlook and intelligence and use of big words. And I love the way they learned about themselves in the process.


Every time I skip the train to take the number 13 bus up to Swiss Cottage, it brakes hard at the same junction, tipping everyone over like dominoes. Last time I pulled a muscle, and that was on my first day out after my bad back. This time I was prepared for the lady beside me. I was so tight, she bounced right off.


Ready for another poem? OK.

Vanessa - Usually I take the Tube, occasionally I walk.

Blue - Slo/Steli is STILL on holiday. Don't worry, it hasn't been that long it only seems so, but we still miss his writing, don't we?
