- I saw the movie World War Z with Brad Pitt this weekend. People kept warning me that it's no good going to this movie for Brad Pitt because he no longer looks good. Pffft, well, I was never one to drool over Pitt and sure, he doesn't look like a 20-year old any more but I figure he still looks very good in it + I like the fact that he doesn't desperately want to try and look like a 20-year old.
- more royal stuff nobody gives a damn about but I'll ramble about it anyway: up until now, our monarchs have been French-speakers who speak Dutch with quite an accent which caused controversy because Dutch is the language of the majority and it's not something they only find out when they get on the throne, is it? King Albert II speaks really good Dutch and his son, soon to be king Philippe also speaks decent Dutch (but his accent is heavier). However, you can hear that their first language is French. Philippe's daughter and soon, next in line to the throne (our very first female monarch
) will now get French lessons because her first language apparently is Dutch (she goes to a Dutch-speaking school, has a Dutch-speaking nanny,...).
I like the girl already.
Oh, and she's getting Chinese language lessons since 2 years already.
