Lunedi Lunacy

Even in those days of his early sketch comedy, Jeeves and Wooster, Blackadder et al I thought Hugh Laurie was the sexiest toff/geek/nob in Christendom.   Well as they say in the other official language “chacun a son Gucci!”  But it would appear that I was right all along as witness the incredibly irritating but incredibly sexy Dr. House he became.  Some toffs/geeks/nobs age well.

A recent delve into the history of Canada indicates that Great Britain wasn’t all that keen on being given British North America in the Treaty of Paris.  After all what did it have to offer other than fur, trees and those pesky sorts to the south who you just knew were going to cause trouble in the not too distant future.  Having said that it would not come as a surprise if that long ago land grab wasn’t the same as this one.

And I’m not saying I’ve ever run into Missions with Ambassadors like this but……


Hmmm… Fry and Laurie in Greek – who would have thought, well okay Fry maybe but Laurie????? Be still my heart.

On this day in 1866: Venice – Annexation of the Veneto and Mantua to Italy – At Hotel Europa, Austria hands over Veneto to France, which hands it immediately over to Italy.

  1. Sometimes comedians make the best dramatic actors, don’t they? Apparently Hugh Laurie will be starring (along with Tom Hiddleston) in a new TV miniseries called “The Night Manager.” I think it will be broadcast in Canada/US on AMC sometime in the new year (?)

  2. In anticipation of returning to Greece in late 2016, I’ve given myself this year to try to turn my Greek into anything that would sustain actual communication with another person. I know this wasn’t the point of your showcasing this video, but it *has* been ‘educational’ for me to run the dialog next to the subtitles. Thank you;-)

    1. Glad to help – wish I was returning to Greece at some point… ah well I can travel vicariously through people I know….
