Did Jaz mention some sort of shirtless calendar?

I'm currently watching a report about Alexander Pichushkin, also known as the "Chessboard Killer", who killed up to 63 people in a park, for no particular reason...

...I am not sure, should I feel bad that I had to laugh when Pichushkin, without any facial expression whatsoever said "I had to kill people. What should I have done instead, grow cucumbers?".

I'm afraid it's mostly shirtless men. The bioware forums don't allow female shirtlessness, even though the Shirtless Saga is for fans of both male and female characters.


Oh, and speaking of latin:

I'll be learning Latin in University now. It's a requirement.


Also, I'm currently learning Arabian. It's not as difficult as I thought it would be. The hardest part will probably be learning the vocab. I've already learned several letters (beginning, ending, and middle forms), and have learned how to ask where someone lives, and can say where I live, and say my name and stuff like that.

And we're actually learning the language in a much more understandable way than native speakers learn it, our teacher tells us. When he first started teaching, he went about it the way he learned it in school, with the exception that the people he was teaching it of course didn't know a bit of the language to start from. But he soon found that that didn't work so well. He wrote the book we're working with, and it is very understandable. The reason why it's so easily acessible and makes so much sense is that the guy works in...I'm not sure if it's "Computer Science" or "Informatics". The German word is apparently the same. So anyway, it's very understandable, and fun.

Japanese has been postponed until the Summer term, when there's actually classes.

That's almost enough to make me get off my butt and learn another language.

But that's what I'll be doing at college, right? Why put too much of a workload on myself at the moment? *goes back to writing novel for NaNoWriMo*

Actually, I'm sure more than one lumberjack has keeled over from heat stroke.

Not when the mother is this frigging stubborn. I'd frankly hoped that you'd have laid it to bed well before now. Ah well, while we're all here, how's it going? Long time no see, you still as crazy as ever Jaz?

I laughed, but that's probably not a good endorsement of your actions.

No, University is about heavy drinking, late night partying, and anonymous sex.

But...I don't want to kill Jelena...she's a good Mom. I don't want to kill my real life Mom either, as she's a good Mom too.

And yup, I'm still as crazy, if not even more.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one apart from my mother who found what the guy said funny.

Oh, latin is nice. And it helps understanding Italian.

I knew it sounded fishy. I just couldn't remember the correct form.

Um...I still live in my parents house? Not to mention the fact that I am not interested in any of those things.

And for what it's worth, the frilly collar ("ruff") tends not to be worn by older people anyway, and the white gown/dress ("surplus"; normally worn on top of a "cassock") tends to be worn by specifically church choirs. At college we were gowns (yay for Oxford being weird and giving you a gown of some description before you graduate).

I totally forgot to comment on this earlier. You really must be tired, or else there wouldn't be as many spelling mistakes as there are in that post.

Oh dear, you should remedy this, half the university experience is about living by yourself away from home. It's a time of freedom, liberation, fending for yourself, and possible malnutrition.
