I found it, but you're actually Campana2222 :)

I saw my daughter :D :D :D

And I realised that we must have been standing within feet of each other! I'd have said 'hi' if I'd realised :)

That trick has gotten me out of trouble at CH more times than I care to remember... :lol:

@Lonelymum: Thanks for picking me up on that - edited so we don't have any more confusion! I was slightly disappointed with my sussex filming - I was slightly off centre with Eugene :(

Josh, while looking at youtube for your video, I put Christ's Hospital into the search, and it brought up a video of the Peele Festival's Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes dance. It is sooo funny, so thanks for that, if you hadn't mentioned your video I would never have seen that one either! :)

7 down, 2 to go... current score's 6-1 to me, but I think it might be 7-2 or 7-3 by teatime Thursday :S

I wasn't too impressed with the video. But only because I heard "HSKT" and thought of the original...not a clubby rappy version :(.

Josh - we could offer you HSKT in Finnish, as performed by a 3-year old!

Genius!

Hmmm, this gives me an idea. Does translating it into latin count as LatLit revision?

But Josh, the Peele version was hilarious! I've watched it 5 times already.

Go for it Josh. The other two will be down to you too.. I feel it in my bones....................................
(which was the one which wasn't, or don't you want to discuss it?! We've all been there)

PS re Latin translations....one of my contemporaries (yes, OK, Hertford, two million years ago) decided to cheek our very formidable Latin teacher - Miss Blench - at O Level. My friend volunteered to translate an unseen passage, in class, and MIss Blench was so amazed that she accepted the offer. With a straight face (?how did she do it??) Sue stood up and told the tale of rabbits copulating at the end of her garden (actually it was some War or other that she was supposed to be translating). We all fell about laughing but most of us do not remember the occasion. When I met Sue again, 40 years later, having been convinced that my memory was apocryphal, she confirmed my recollection! What is remarkable is that Miss Blench, yes the formidable Miss Blench, took it on the chin!

So as I said earlier, go for it! If you don't know for sure, make it up. Though make sure that whatever you make up is passably reasonable. I recall Geography O Level (again long before your time) and being told by an older girl that 'if in doubt, put potatoes'. So at mock Geography O Level I wrote a very erudite essay about potato growing in somewhere like the Fenlands....only to find out later that this is the only place in the UK where potatoes cannot be grown, because it is too wet. You win some and you lose some!

I wish you the very best outcome from your A levels, and the HE place that you want for the year after your trek!

Oh dear. In that case you definitely need to watch Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes again. I prescribe 5 more viewings! :D
