English commentators have always pronounced Czech footballers named Jiri as Year-ree. It may not be right, but that's how I've always heard it.

I was exactly like that at the same age. In fact, my dad was away with work for long periods of time as well and that's was mainly why I was such a pain then. But I turned out okay in the end. :p

After nearly a week of procrastinating and putting off starting my last essay for the semester, I finally knuckled down and started the thing. I ended up powering through just under 1,200 words in about an hour of work. I'm pleased. :)

Writing reviews is a good way to get traffic. Even though mine is just reviews, I didn't write one for three months and still had around 400 hits per month. Google has an inbuilt blog search function now, so people randomly searching for info about something will probably come across it through there.

Ever since I went to an abatoir for a school excursion many years ago and found out what's actually in them, the notion of sausages makes me go icky. :o I just refuse to eat them now.
