Not if I have anything to do with it, it isn't.


To be fair, "Paris" isn't pronounced "Paris" by the natives - but I'm not an Ainu, so I'm perfectly entitled to prnounce it phonetically. (If it's rude, obviously; otherwise I'll make the effort).

Question: What would you say if an Etonian said "abumgang" to you?

Answer: Your welcome.


With a forfeit for "Your dorm or mine?"

I forgot to mention this delicious note on Old Etonians.

The Old Etonian football team have won the FA Cup twice: once in 1879, and again 1882 (where they defeated Blackburn Rovers).

They were runners up a whopping 4 times.

I would have thought this ranked them in the top 20 of most successful FA Cup teams of all time.

Alan will no doubt (coughs) love this factoid...
