Saw “The Two Popes” in Munich this afternoon. Historicity aside (it’s largely a fictional imagining), this is a stunningly produced film & incredibly acted by the leads. Heartwarming, human, and definitely worth a look.

To (very loosely) paraphrase Emma Thompson in Love Actually, “there was a seahorse at the birth of the baby Jesus?” And, sure, why not? After all, both can claim to have had *not quite* your regular birth.

We now have about a dozen insects found within books from the sixteenth century onwards. We are wondering if their existence can tell us anything about the readers who killed them: time of year of reading; location of reading. Sounds like a research project.....

We don’t use “some” in that way, but, as you’ll know, there’s a significant Irish influence in Newfoundland where you can still find accents very close to our own over here.

“He’s right bould, so he is” “He’s fair bould” “He’s a wicked bould young fella”. “He’s wile bold, hai” (Donegal) 😀

Those last two words encapsulate perfectly the gulf between English & Hiberno-English. You could traverse the country & not hear “proper” used in this way. But you’ll find “right”; fair”; “wicked”; “terrible”; “wile”,&c. E.g. anybody can be an eejit, but if you’re a right eejit..
