Slacker. Ah, well.
I just wanted to point out a couple of weird things about life here in England.
First: What's up with this? The first time I encountered it was back when I was starting the Tae Kwon Do thing with David (which we don't do anymore). A little girl in the class was spelling her name: "My name is spelled Luh Ih Luh Luh Yeh." Yep, her name was Lilly. I thought, how weird. But now our Lily is in what they call Year 2 of school, equivalent to 1st grade, and doing spelling tests, and I'll be darned if she doesn't spell things that same way: House - "Huh oh uh suh eh" Train - "Tuh ruh ah [rhymes with at] ih nuh" and so on. Now, maybe I'm not remembering my school days as clearly as I used to, but didn't the letters used to have names? And wasn't learning those names part of kindergarten and first grade? What gives?
Second: Ok, I know I'm not the only one, because I saw a few other similar comments when I was looking for a picture to borrow for this. There's a cartoon on TV here, don't know if they have it in the states, called "Peppa Pig." The drawing style is rather simplistic. Which makes the Pig family look a lot like, um... well, here:
... especially Daddy Pig, with his stubble. If you don't see what I'm talking about, well, good for you, I guess, but is it just me, or is someone having a little naughty chuckle?
