      hahahaha XD We actually might say there is a moose loose about the house. My father in law actually had one run through his backyard a few years back. It took down about 6 feet of chain-link fence in the process. :D
      So you don't use the long vowel sound of "i" then?!?!?! I can't imagine saying "vitamins" as "v-it-a-mins" rather than as "v-eye-ta-mins".. that's just crazy! "Pants" is perfectly acceptable here because "underpants" are called "underwear" instead. I have never heard a North American use the word "Lorry" in my life. "Truck", "Rig", "Transport", "Tractor-Trailer", "Cube Van", "Flatbed" would all be reasonable synonyms for that one depending on the type of vehicle described.

      How did Tuesday go BTW?

      Accents can sure be tough to understand. After I posted my vlog last November, Emelie told me that I say "about" in a funny way. Apparently she hears that I say it more like "aboot" instead. I sat at my laptop for quite awhile repeating the word over and over because I didn't believe her. I still can't hear that. XD Also, Ephemeral had some podcasts posted online that he'd done with some friends. I listened to one, but I could catch only about one word in three because of the Aussie accents. In spite of my lack of understanding accented conversation, I love to listen to people with different accents speak... they sound amazing. I'm also constantly amazed by the differences in common vocabulary. The British say "trousers", we say "pants". They say "lifts", we say "elevators". I once saw Reece post a comment with the word "tosser" in it and I lmao... you'd NEVER hear that word used here. That was awesome. :)

      So the French class you're taking is teaching you to speak French then? In a land of native French-speakers? That's crazy. Where I live we are mostly native English-speakers and in school we have "English" classes. Those classes are mostly about literature and literacy, not about learning to speak the language. We also have French classes (since that's our other official language) but they make even less sense. French Canadians speak "Quebecois" which is completely different from anything spoken in Europe. I had a boss who was from Normandy once. He moved to Quebec and couldn't understand a word anybody there spoke to him. Anyway, they teach Canadian students here the European version of the language, not the Quebec version. Dumb dumb dumb!

      You probably did better than you think you did. Under stress people always seem to second-guess themselves. Besides, you still have the written to go right? Study study study!

      that's alright

      fancy!
      "Mum's the word" is probably the best policy then. XD
      Wow! You get results fast for your exams. We always had to wait weeks before getting a transcript in the mail. You gotta love electronic tests and email.... :) Good luck on your French exam.

      hahahaha XD
      You'd better not tell your female relatives that you potentially have a girlfriend then!
      Seriously, mothers go insane at weddings (mine did anyway... turned into demon mom and everything). I don't know about sisters because I never had one and my own brother has never been married. I have no idea if the insanity would take over me for such an event or not. :P
      So how many more exams have you got to go?

      You could study together by Skype (or something equivalent). It's amazing to me how people are able to be constantly connected these days, especially when they're so far apart geographically.
      Math was always like that for me. If there was a concept I didn't yet know, there was no point in moving on until I'd figured it out. I liked calculus and algebra was OK. I hated stats though! Stats was one of the main reasons I decided I'd never go into any research-based aspect of my career. :P

      "That is another word for it, yes. Maybe we should leave it at that though." I sincerely hope you are referring to the icing made with butter and icing sugar. If not, then: *gasps and puts hands on hips* :nono: Aaaaghhhh! I need brain bleach! We will definitely leave it at that.

      Awww that's too bad. :(
      Is it icing?
      ... and yeah I used to despise studying for exams. The worst one I ever had to study for was right at the end of my degree. Anything they ever taught us in 4 years was fair game for the test. Good grief was that ever a nightmare to study for!

      Studying with someone else is always more fun. Make sure chocolate gets involved if at all possible.... brains need sugar to function you know :D Glad to hear your chem exam went well! Ah exams... I don't miss those days....
