For those of you who don’t read news.gnome.org, here’s a new Metacity post: should double-clicking the menu button close the window?
Rio’s teacher claimed, when she spelt a word with a “zed”, that “zed” wasn’t “proper English” (though it wasn’t unreasonable to ask her to use the same terminology as the other kids) and when Rio apologised but said she’d been brought up speaking British English, her teacher told her she wasn’t British. She was a bit upset about that, so we went over. Her teacher said that she’d never noticed that I was British, and that she loved my accent and that I look like Paul McCartney. I wonder whether she thinks all British people look like Paul McCartney.
I went to the bank. They claimed that SWIFT is only a European thing and that they had no SWIFT number. This is obviously untrue, since I’d sent money from England to that very branch myself. I think I may find another bank.
Rio says there should be a Barbie doll which says “Calculus is fun! Let’s go shopping!”
