It is pretty long at 4 hours.
You're not wrong, VS.

For those of you interested in words, and learning new English words I can recomend HotForWords, free from the itunes store (the video versions are best to get the full learning experience)
More info here.

you should probably also give FreeRice a go and donate free rice at the same time as learning new words. Shame they don't produce a spanish version.

Yet another example of your incessant floccinaucinihilipilification I think.

You're quite right. I'm a serial floccinaucinihilipilificator.

Well they say aversion therapy is the best way to get over these things.

As you well know they lost, are you floccinaucinihilipilificating again?

I just took my 4 yr old to the park and managed to fall over chasing her around -as I've already broken my collar bone I managed to cause more pain by twisting in an impossible way to avoid further damage there, and have done something to my back.

To no avail. My shoulder hurts anyway and I lost my mobile phone in the process.

I reeled into the Alfred Herring to recover (and feed the sprog) and then met the missus in the street who had been called out by someone in the Alfred Herring that had found my phone in the park (seems to be the usual Sunday jaunt) and she's not happy that I've interrupted her e-baying.

Bugger.

Just to keep this on topic I recommend TheSpursShow on itunes with Phil Cornwell- god I love podcasting. It will be interesting to see what Juande has to say.

I've just had a look. Looks fun -although strange that answering more questions can provide more rice, (like if the've got the rice -give it). I suppose it's to do with the number of people visiting -and I've never understood how websites make money.


240 grains on my first visit -not alot

Would that be under 'Sport' or 'Comedy'?

Saludos!

Thought i'd throw my two cents' worth in.

websites: http://www.howstuffworks.com/ - some interesting info on pretty much everything

movies:
this one is quite old, from 1997 i think - Tango Lesson, directed by Sally Potter, for all tango lovers

and another one, this time its German - Gegen die Wand (i believe Head On is its English name), directed by Fatih Akin - one of the best movies i've seen in a long while!

music: Madeline Peyroux - an american jazz singer, very nice voice and style, they say her singing resembles Billie Holiday (and so it does) and is unoriginal but i still like her, just like Billie Holiday - http://youtube.com/watch?v=3GZRTm9-tz0&feature=related
