Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!
^ That's an awesome gift for your daughter.
I've ordered several items from thinkgeek.com last year, delivery to Germany went totally smooth (and fast - took only a week or so for the packages to arrive).
My application for leave still hasn't been approved. It probably will, but I'd prefer to be able to book my train tickets now
Looking forward to spending the week leading up to Christmas Eve with my family down south in Bavaria
Philitas of Cos, Greek intellectual, is said by Athenaeus to have studied arguments and erroneous word usage so intensely that he wasted away and starved to death. British classicist A. Cameron speculates that P. died from a wasting disease which his contemporaries joked was caused by his pedantry.
