09:44 pm - And now, with slightly less woe
Well, my computer seems to be working fine again, I got to wear my new boots, and just when I thought I had lost one of my earrings, I found it again.

An hour later. On the footpath, in the middle of the Melbourne CBD.

Life is good (for certain values of good).

Now, the post I was going to make the other day was going to be about various dinners (and/or teas) with parents, but half the stuff I was going to say I've forgotten. Except that high tea had waffles and a toffee apple - been ages since I had one of those - and then I went and saw the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, which I found flawed but still decent enough and fairly enjoyable. And then on Monday night I had this imploding pudding thing for dessert, which was intriguing.

And now, piles of YouTube videos!

- A trailer for Drop Bear: The Movie. Because this is now an essential requirement for Australian cinema.
- A joke about historians. Note: Not a YouTube video. But still entertaining.
- French Existential Star Wars. Because all subtitles should have references to existentialist philosophers.
- Lessons on British Justice from Law & Order: UK. So ~educational~.
- Through the Pensieve, a Harry Potter fanvid, with footage from all 7 films so far, and some from the trailers for the last film. Even if you are like me and definitely prefer the books, it's still a good watch.
- 50 State Stereotypes. Teaching you all about America.

I had no idea our slang was so incomprehensible. Educational.

Well, the ad is from US TV. I'm Australian, so I got it.

I'm sure Americans and Australians have words I'd go huh? at, but when you grow up with the language, you just don't think about it.

I kind of love that it's a genuine advert. Possibly they deliberately mis-defined 'knackers' so as to be able to broadcast before the watershed? *googles* Except they don't call it the watershed.

Cultural differences FTW!

Where's your icon from?

I suspect it's not entirely serious there.

Icon is from a comic called Nextwave, which is rather hilarious. And completely absurd, in the best possible way.

lol, that stereotype video. So true. Really. It is.

Favorite line:
"No really, we're a state!"

I let the Americans come up with their own stereotypes. But it amused me, even if I don't actually know half those states.
