Self Improvement [Sep. 5th, 2006|11:14 am]
Listen in, listen Ian!
attommickbrane mentioned on Saturday her Finnish course that starts soon, which reminded me that I want to learn something and it's about time I shaped up and got it sorted. As such, I went round to City Lit after work last night and signed up for a Catalan course. I was going to do Spanish, but all the courses were full so when I looked at the list of language courses with space, Catalan was an obvious alternative. Next time I'm in Barcelona, I'll be like a native.

Fans of Danny Baker will no doubt be aware of Van Morrisson's contractual obligation album. I was telling webofevil about it last night, and I thought that everybody shuold know about it, especially the seminal "Ring Worm". Look out for the scary ghost noise on 0:54!

I don't suppose you could learn a load of useful phrases and pass them onto me? Say, over the next 10 days or so? Taeverso.
