July 14: Stinker!

You know when you watch a movie, wanting it to be good, because one of your favourite actors is in it? And a few minutes in, you realise it’s going to be bad? Maybe really bad? But you keep watching, hoping you’re wrong?

We just watched “Identity Thief” with Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. Shocker. Stinker. Rubbish. But he was in it. And yes, he played a character he’s played 100 times before, but he was still good in it. He can do no wrong in my eyes! But wowsers, that movie was rotten.

It was almost a stinker of a day too, but it only made it to 29 degrees :). Not bad at all. Had a nice day – worked this morning then met Claudia at the Marzili, but we didn’t swim in the Aare. We just lazed around in the shade and chatted. Bruce is running well (jinx!).

I’m slowly catching up on correspondence which is a nice feeling. I used to be a prolific letter writer, but these days it’s just emails – or fitfor15in15!

Ever wanted to hear some true Aussies talking? I watched a ripper video today that has really helped Leo with his Strayan, I mean Australian. If you’d like to understand us a bit better (or at all!) have a gander. I’d be devo’d if I didn’t get these Aussie blokes’ lingo! I hope you enjoy it too.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

  1. Loved the Aussie thing – couple of the shortenings were not ones I have ever used or heard others use but about 95% are part of my vocab. Makes you realise that there is more to Aussie than just the accent – oh an by the way it is Spag Bog only posh people say Sapg Bol.
