The good news: I got a Welsh pocket dictionary. I seriously am tryig to learn this language.
And I payed another visit to my local bookstore's dvd section's Criterion Collection shelf and managed to snag a copy of Jikgoku, The Spirit of the Beehive and 81/2 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0154683/, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070040/, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056801/, this computer won't let me link things because it's stupid aaaargh)
The bad news: I heard just now that Bill Amend (the genius behind the excellent comic strip Foxtrot) is now semi-retiring and will only do sunday strips, and am in a bit of a funk about it. WE'LL MISS THE DAILIES, MR. AMEND!
