Go ahead - I did!

I'm reminded of that Blackadder II gag in the 'Dr. Johnson' episode:
Quote:
Blackadder: I believe, sir, that the doctor is trying to tell you that he is happy because he has finished his book. It has apparently taken him ten years.

George: Yes. Well, I'm a slow reader myself.

Yeah, that was funny. And by-the-way, I hate to be pedantic, but as a BlackAdder fan, you should have realised that it is BlackAdder III not II.

You could always go out.
In fact, will somebody explain to me why TV prime time is Friday and Saturday nights, when people tend to go out?

What am I thinking of! Of course it's Blackadder III.

I wonder if there's a minimum length for an "epic"?


According to Patrick Kavanagh, one of my favourite poets:

EPIC

I have lived in important places, times
When great events were decided: who owned
That half a rood of rock, a no-man's land
Surrounded by our pitchfork-armed claims.
I heard the Duffys shouting "Damn your soul"
And old McCabe stripped to the waist, seen
Step the plot defying blue-cast steel -
"Here is the march along these iron stones."
That was the year of the Munich bother. Which
Was more important? I inclined
To lose my faith in Ballyrush and Gortin
Till Homer's ghost came whispering to my mind.
He said: I made the Iliad from such
A local row. Gods make their own importance.

Talking about Munich. Am I right in thinking that the Munich putsch was successful for the Nazis, even though it failed?

I mean, of course, in terms of gaining publicity for Hitler and the party?

Love the poem, Jenny. I must look him up next time I am in Waterstones.

Hah. My novel is doomed to be updated if and when the author feels like it, then to be lost in the eternal vaults of cyberspace upon completion. I have a migraine at the minute, so it is lying as dormant as it's creator, only without the flannel.

(((dotcom))) sorry to hear about the migraine - I've had those and they're rotten. Have you looked at any of the obvious dietary causes? Cheese, chocolate and red wine are all notorious triggers (you're possibly a little young for the latter to be a problem). Stress is another - do you have Year 9 SATs coming up? Sympathies in any case.

Year 11. Doing mocks at the moment. Just decided to drop ICT. I've practically done it. All that's missing is a certificate, and I need the time.

Dotcom, sorry, I'd forgotton you had SATS, because we didn't do them - we did our own school exams.

Anybody - do you know when kids first do their first SATS, becuase I have a sister in Year 1, ans was wondering what month they do it in in Year 2.

Natalie - they do their first SATs in Year 2 when some will be 7 and some still 6 - it's usually around March or April I think. Second SATs are done in Year 6 around the same time.

Thanks, I'm doing French, Music, and English Lit. I'm only doings three, becuase it's easier and I only really need 3. Otherwise, it'd be R.S., which is apparently boring so...
