I came across these videos from Open University which amused me -- I thought I'd share a couple, just for fun (yeah, I know I've probably got a weird sense of fun, but language and words have always fascinated me).  They're from a series called "The History of English in Ten Minutes":





The (amateur) musical I'm in is coming to an end - four more performances (two on Saturday - good grief!), then its over.  I don't know whether to laugh or cry - it's been an absolutely hilarious ride, but exhausting and stressful, but I'm so glad I pushed past my fears and put myself out there.

Hope everyone is goodly! ♥

Hee - I love the meaning of FAIL most of all ;)

Wow good on you for the musical - brave girl! That mixture of pleased and sad to see it end sounds familiar. Enjoy those last performances - hope you survive Saturday in particular!

Thanks, poppet! Only running on adrenaline now ... ran out of actual energy last week. ;P

Weird ways exhaustion manifests itself:

1. I keep leaving random 'things' in random places.
2. I have been wearing different left and right boots to work since Thursday of last week and only noticed yesterday.

Guh!

Mirth!

Shakespoke was clever.

Musical?!? You're brave, acting and singing at the same time is beyond me. No wonder you're running on empty.

I guess I'm more looking forward to it being over than sad that it's ending ... I couldn't keep up the pace for much longer (assuming I can keep it up until the end anyway)!!
