oooh, irish gaelic.

HOTTT.

you know i tried to teach myself irish gaelic when i was, oh, probly in year 8. i just borrowed a book from the local library. it said it had a tape that went with it, to help with pronunciation, but i was like, pfft, i don't need no tape.

needless to say, my attempts were not, um, successful.

although have been listening to lots of sinead's songs in gaelic, so my gaelic now consists solely of sinead song titles. tres useful.

can you steal the interweb from work and listen to irish people?

tine,

i love yr stories. that is hilar. you should learn old irish. it looks fabulous and completely unintelligble. much like sinead.

i am *so* funny.

grot said...
