I have been a little under the weather these last couple of days. I've had long-standing issues with sinusitis and asthma and despite the weather being exceedingly cold and despite the fact that I was already sniffing and sneezing, I decided it would be a very good idea to clean out our very dusty storage space on Sunday morning. Not very surprisingly, within an hour I was sneezing violently and my left eye had swollen up. Brilliant! So Sunday afternoon was a write-off, spent on the couch watching a truly daft Elvis movie and feeling sorry for myself. I felt a little better yesterday but the weather this long weekend just passed - rain, cold winds - has not inclined me to do too much at all. It is 8 degrees (celsius) here at the moment...
But enough of the downer that is winter. The second season of "Flight of the Conchords" started here last night and so I thought I would give you the link to one of my favourite songs of theirs, "Foux De Fa Fa". I mean no disrespect to the French by posting this link. I have been to Paris and it's lovely. This is more about the absurdity of what they teach you at school when learning a foreign language.
