I'm famous, bitches.

  • I found out today that my Welsh-language blog was mentioned in the most recent issue of the Welsh-language magazine Golwg.

  • I really dislike the term "free money." It strikes me as a stupid thing to say. Almost all money is "free" in the sense that you don't have to pay for it. If you pay for money, that's called "currency exchange."

  • I'm ashamed to admit this, but I don't understand the British university grading system. I'm assuming a 2:1 is good?

  • The woeful tale of the Tories' Top Cat.

  • Bwhahaha. I'm telling you -- the EU is doomed. When the EU eventually packs it in for good, I suspect I will be a raving lunatic about it. I will probably purchase a bullhorn and run through the streets: "You see? I was right! I predicted this years ago -- before the euro was even released! You should have listened to me, world. I am a genius!"

    First = best!
    2:1 = pretty darned good!
    2:2 = 'drinker's degree'
    3rd = go home crying

    Yes, I got a 2:2. *shame* But I met my about-to-be husband, so it wasn't a total waste of time.

    Well done getting into Golwg - In what context was the blog mentioned? Up for any awards or anything?!

    1st - excellent well done
    2:1 - Very good (equivalent of a 3rd if you are the future king of england it's not as if they were going to give him lower).
    2:2 - social degree, (you are not going to be the king of england)
    3rd - rubbish (you are the royal arse wiper)

    Now, now. A 2.1 is about a 62 or 65. It's not all that good really. Especially in humanities. Let's not get over excited about this.

    Congrats on your worldwide publicity in Golwg. I still don't see how you can keep the spelling straight on ANY of those words.

    Awww, sorry to hear about the troubles in the EU. Gosh, I sure wish I could help those pretentious, uppity pricks fix things.

    Look, we've been getting along fine without the French for years. I think the European Union can, too. Who needs a bunch of winos?

    "I'm ashamed to admit this, but I don't understand the British university grading system. I'm assuming a 2:1 is good?" --> I think you need a degree in order to understand the British grading system!
