Um, difficult question. Let me get back to you on that one. I need to think about it because it's not a straightforward answer.
I got my answer. For some reason, you and I have trouble communicating. Must be my English.

You and I are always so quick to blame ourselves. I wonder why?

It's certainly not your English. I've had no trouble communicating with people with far worse English linguistic skills than you. I think it's your unique humour. I've never come across anything like it.

That's very kind of you but I doubt "unique" is the right word to describe mu humour.

I am going to the cinema tonight want to come? We're watching Argo

Interesting that you took it as a compliment…

In case you were wondering, it was indeed a compliment. I find you amusing in a nice way, most of the time!

I would have loved to have accompanied you to the cinema this evening, but I have to pass. Too much work to do. And duty forbids.

Mostly you find me silly. Admit it.

Also why didn't you answer my invitation?

Õne more thing. Why "The Bulldog"? Do you have one?

Oh you answered.

Also your girlfriend. Though she probably wouldn't mind, since she would probably look at me as an old lady. (No need to comment, star, I already know what your thought was after reading this. )

No, no. That's not true. I see you like to self-deprecate, much like myself. I'm not buying it, though.

I initially forgot, but then I answered it.

No, I don't have one, but it's a nickname that I picked up when I was a bit younger. It's stuck and I quite like it to be honest. Maybe you don't, and I wouldn't blame you!

Feel free to ask anything anytime, I really don't mind, so no need to worry if you are asking too much. And likewise, do tell me if I ask too much, it is something that I do, ask a lot of questions.

Maybe not anymore.

She might, but I wouldn't think of you like that. I think she'd enjoy Argo way more than me.

You're a smart boy, indeed.

I don't dislike it. I just don't really associate one with the other. I mean George witha bulldog. (It's a good thing. )

Not entirely sure what you mean. Doesn't matter.

Just know we're here to distract you. From everything including school work.

I find it very curious that I am the most active on this forum during my exam period.

I don't think I'm smart. If only you knew about some if the awful decisions I make, day-in, day-out.

The username is largely irrelevant when on actual name terms. I don't really mind what people think. Call me selfish, but it's a username I like, so I went with it!

Sorry, I wrote the wrong thing entirely. Maybe we will go and see that film, if she hasnt already. It doesn't look like my cup of tea, but you never know, I could really enjoy it.

I think you've already succeeded with permanently distracting me. I am doomed to do badly in my exams.

Probably because during that period, you stay at home the most, meaning to study and get distracted by the internet. Non-exam periods are reserved for the occasional pub crawl and other social activities.

That doesn't mean you're not smart. I am smart and I make terrible decisions too.

Do you even know why my username is arm? Let's just say I am not very creative.

and here I was thinking you had broken up. We CLEARLY have communication problems.

BTW, has anyone asked you about your avatar?

I suppose you are right. But, see. I get a lot of things wrong. A smart kid wouldn't do that.

I daren't ask… I'll leave it to you to tell me if you want to.

Sorry.

Incidentally, when I read it back, that's what it sounded like to me. We haven't… yet. No doubt the fall cometh, so we'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Not yet. I get the feeling people think I'm a bit of a homo, though. I care very little, though.

Knowledgable, in certain subjects, maybe. Not smart, though.

My laptop went dead in the middle of Murray/tsonga stream. Keeping my fingers crossed that it's overheat.

Raquel, Argo is a good movie. Enjoy it, but it is a dramatization, and much of what is shown and done is false. I don't mind that, but at the end they sort of make it look like the truth. It angered Canadian and British diplomats. I had read a book about this episode so I spent the movie trying to remember the book and in a state of confusion. But the movie was good in and of itself, but I think at the end they should have said "we made up a lot of this. Take it with a grain of salt "
