I appear to have invented a cocktail.  I'm not sure what it should be called, but it goes as follows:

1 part Grand Marnier
1 part ginger roseade (lemonade with ginger and rosehips in)
Top off with ginger ale

It's one of those girly drinks that I love, because I'm a ponce, sweet and tart and bubbly.  Rather lovely, all in all.

On another note, I don't want to write my paper on the presence and influence of Christianity in Jane Eyre.  It's not that it's terribly difficult- I know exactly what I'm going to talk about, what my various points are- I have easily enough information for three pages- I just... don't want to write it.  I'm a lazy bugger, what can I say?  I'd rather sit here and read fanfiction and transcribe episodes of Qi for the QI Transcripts website.  

Why?  Because Dr. Kay papers are fucking naff, that's why.  End of story.  Full stop.  Etc, etc.

Stephen Fry: If someone's from France, they're French, and if someone's from Germany, they're German, but what's the right word for someone who's from the U.S.A?

Graeme Garden: Is it 'Burger-Eating Invasion Monkey'?

That officially made my life a little bit better.

And now for something quite interesting...

~Did you know that ozone is blue, and smells faintly of geraniums? 

~Tmesis:  The only word in the English language which begins with 'tm.'  Tmesis is the process of cutting a word in half by putting another word inside of it, eg: abso-blooming-lutely, or sen-fucking-sational

~After Henry VII died, the day he was moved to the site of his burial his guts were so rotten, and it was such a hot day that his stomach actually exploded.

~20 countries in the world produce diamonds- of these 20, the top five are Australia, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Botswana, Russia, and South Africa.

~Michelangelo was a butch gay.  Apparently

~Costa Rica is the only country in the world which doesn't have an army.  It was disbanded in 1949, and they have have no need for once since.  Indeed, their constitution forbids the formation of a national army.

~The slowest light has ever been recorded as travelling at is 38 miles per hour.  This occurs when light travels through sodium chilled to a temperature of -270 degrees, though whether in Fahrenheit or Celcius I know not.

~Barbara Cartland invented the aeroplane-towed-glider

~According to Pliny the Elder, eating the heart of a black jackass out of doors on the second day of the moon would cure one of epilepsy

~The only word in the English language which rhymes with 'silver' is 'chilver,' a word referring to a female lamb

~Also according to Pliny the Elder, the surest way to cure a headache is to tie a fox's genitals to the forehead of the sufferer

~The British bee died out in the first World War, and the bees living in England today are actually Mexican bees, and other bees which were imported to replace the British bees, who- apparently- were wiped out by a pandemic of the common cold.

~The ancient Danish army, between 1104 and 1134, consisted of only seven men

~If one goes by sheer number of boats, Disney has the fourth largest navy in the world

~Switzerland has four official languages, none of which is used on their stamps- for those, they use Latin

~In the Vietnam war, in order to prevent soldiers from swallowing their own tongues, American medics would use safety pins to attach the soldiers' tongues to their cheeks

For this information, I thank Stephen Fry and his wonderful show Qi, which, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it, stands for 'quite interesting.'
