Going English

Postby Raya » Fri Sep 26, 2003 5:22 am

Tentatively I'll be in England this December - around London mostly, although (if I'm called in for interview) I'd have a week or so in Oxford... anyway, I was wondering if anyone else here might be in town around then - perhaps we could meet up? ;)

Hmm... maybe. But I don't know, yet, and probably won't know until like the beginning of December anyway :P.<br /><br />So you want to study at Oxford? I can just hear Kessa thinking: I want to study there... I want to study there...<br /> ;)<br />

For one day however. I don't know the exact date yet ;) Bishops crossed :D

Emma: Well, I'll be in England for the whole of December, so if you *do* happen to be around, email me!<br /><br />Keesa: I wish I could help more! :( But let me know if I can do *anything*<br /><br />Episcopus: As we've discussed ;D

Well Episcopus, I think the only way to make up with him is, when we get to Oxford, to send him a phallovitrobollus autographed by the team who wrote his precious new lexicon! ;D

That would be nice but insufficient as those are the conniving jerks who charge way too much for a very good dictionary.

Now, Benissimus, be fair. The authors aren't the ones who set the prices; that's the editor and the publisher, then the wholesaler, perhaps a warehouse or two in between, and the retailer. :D

sois juste! <br /><br />comme l'université d'oxford a si beaucoup de pouvoir je crois qu'on doit en faire quelque chose...les études après avoir les faits on leur doit $25000 et souvent plus que ça...<br />il y a six enfants dans ma famille il n'est point possible que mes parents puissent payer pour mes études, et sans tenir compte de cela je devrai n'importe comment...pas d'aide, pas d'argent. ma maison elle est très grande et a cause de ceci le gouvernment pense que nous avons toujours plein d'argent...Au contraire, il est difficile de tenir notre maison avec six enfants qui reçoivent - je dis a ma mere de ne pas acheter certaines choses pour nous mais elle ne m'entend jamais...elle me hai...) quoi qu'ils veuillent.<br />je ne sais pas ce que je ferai - mais parfois je me vois dans les rues, chanter pour de l'argent avec une bouteille de l'alcool a la main...un vagabond. ou peut etre que je donne a l'eglise un 'examen' - j'y irai sans aucun chose sauf mes vetements et je verrai qu'ils me donnent une chambre, de la nourriture etc. est-ce qu'ils auront entendu ce qu'a dit jesus? ;)<br /><br />Anyhow, good luck jemivica!<br /><br />Ah yes...my mother is Irish, scottish and English. But not welsh. So the irony of our living here is queer.

<br />Wow, Epis, you're on a roll today! <br /><br />I'll definitely throw in a few coins into your cup when I run into you panhandling on the streets of Oxford. And I'll stuff a few bills in if you're a talented street artist. ;) Which instrument will you be playing?<br /><br />

Art...well...I draw strikingly graphical thus disturbing pictures of rabbits being run over. Like on that game carmageddon in which one may run over cows. I love that. <br /><br />I will be yelling random insults at people's mothers most probably, or singing "Dear Mama" by tupac.
