Incidentally, never go to the BP gift shop for books. Only go there if you want a tea cosy with Queen Mary's face on it.


That really cracked me up!

Frankly, I used to browse through Queen Mary's photo albums in the Bod instead of swotting up for essays. I'm sure they can be of service to YOU. ;)


Queen Mary in the Bod.

HAH! Actually, it's just a Queen Mary's DOLLHOUSE tea cosy, but you know, close enough. :tongue:

OMG.......Nellie, where do you FIND THESE PICS! Extraordinary shot of Queen Mary reading WITH LORGNETTE!! Probably in Duke Humphrey's reading room, where they have those gorgeous old tomes.

They don't allow you to bring anything that has permanent ink inside, just in case you go crazy and decide to grafitti an old folio of Shakespeare. (grin) (grin)

Tanto, it occurs to me that we are thinking as non-students.


You can see how being in a Spanish forum affects my syntax in English. Whilst it is perfectly acceptable and grammatical to use "it occurs to me" in English, it is still rather foreign-sounding. It's a direct translation of the Spanish phrase, "se me ocurre".

Today, I was dealing with German and Italian tourists, and had to switch between languages. When I returned to Dinastías I almost posted "per esempio" instead of "por ejemplo" and had to delete it!

I'm so suggestible.

The monarchy doesn't work without the help and enthusiasm of the people around it -- Queen Mary always appreciated that and put her best foot forward in public ALWAYS, unlike so many royals today, who take their position for granted.

Three cheers for the salt of the earth! ;D

I just wanted to let you know that I got my book already. It's very good and it's helping me a lot. Thank you again for your suggestion. After I finished my dissertation I hope to know as much as you know already.
