I taught Gerry how to speak Irish last Thursday. He kept falling down on his aras but I had him translating Ecce Romani into the original Irish by tea time.

I'm teaching NIE Ulster-Scots all next week. Doddle.

Yes there is, neither the Federation or the Klingons had warp capability then. Only the Vulcans, and possibly the Romulans.

Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if joesax invented one of those warp thingies by next week.

Came back early. I'm never going there again! I must have gone to the wrong room in the palace while looking for the head honcho, because there was this guy with a big pair of scissors who wanted to remove the family jewels, if you know what I mean! Just managed to escape intact.

So learning Manchu's a no-go. But at least it gives me time to get to work on the warp thingy.

Did you happen to see these guys?


If so, tell them Rufus wants his phone booth back. And for God's sake, keep Napoleon away from the ice cream.

Now for my next language. Any suggestions?

First time I ever heard someone say they finished learning Chinese.
