Question for the Kiwis and Aussies: In Astronomy we learn that if one is above the North Pole looking down, the planets all revolve around the Sun counter-clockwise. My teacher wants to know if people in the Southern Hemisphere also relate things in regard to the North Pole, or if they do it from the South Pole. Anyone?

My facebook friends can see a selection of Paris photos now...

If you're not on facebook, you'll have to wait until I get them approved by everyone in them. []

At first we were relieved, 'cos we are so tired.
We were home as quick-and-safely as could be desired.
But then we spent the car ride home just thinking how much fun we'd had
And we grew sad;
The thought of going to work is bad!
So now we're back
Back from
Paris...
We just walked in to find the heating's off and we've run out of tea!
I should have missed the stupid 'plane,
Thrown my passport into the sea,
If I'd have known for just one second how depressing it would be!
We should just go... Walk out the door...
Get on a 'plane now
And not be English anymore!
It's cold and rainy here and miserable as hell.
D'you think they'd miss us? D'you think they'd even wish us well?
Oh would they hell! We need a nap...
Oh, holidays are wonderful but coming home is crap.
I've got clothing to unpack,
And my suitcase to put back; I need a nap,
We need a nap. Hey hey!

Er... I can't remember anything astronomical being related to either pole. [] But then, I left school 10 years ago... []

*Googles "planets revolve" "around sun" "south pole"* What I found is a cached page... (4th result)

It's well known to the astronomy folks that space really doesn't have an "up" or a "down", and that they're just abstractions made for convenience when making diagrams, etc.

I also had the post-Paris blues... it takes a couple of days. []

Glad to hear that you all had a great time! [] I just said goodbye to my mom who is flying back to Hawaii... and now I need to start planning my trip there in May. []

If you added me as a friend like a good little lass, maybe I could see the pictures. [] []

Well, I've never taken any Astronomy lesson, but if I stand above the North Pole and look down, what I see is my feet and a big white ground []

*is sunk too*
*is very tired, too* []

Ha! Little do you know... I was actually stalking you when I was in Paris last week. I was standing outside of your apartment watching you. [] You might have noticed the tall man in the Legolas wig? []

Not to mention the post-Paris exhaustion.

So Ama- now that you've experienced a superior culture, are you ready to ditch your obsession with the doom and gloom of Irish culture?

*goes to view pictures*

I like doom and gloom. []

But I'll take French food over British/Irish any day. []

It took all the strength I had to get out of bed
Kept thinking I should call my work and say I'm ill instead.
I've spent the morning speaking French and feeling sorry for myself
I want to cry.
Or just get on a 'plane and fly.
I'm in a sulk! It isn't fair!
I'm going to buy some cheese at lunchtime and pretend we're there,
And now we're checking in the diary
To see when we'll next be be free,
So now we're planning our next visit to the people of MT!
We should just go... Walk out the door...
Get on a 'plane now
And not be English anymore!
It's dull and boring here and miserable as hell.
D'you think they'd miss us? D'you think they'd even wish us well?
Oh would they hell! We need a nap...
Oh, holidays are wonderful but coming home is crap.
I've got clothing to unpack,
And my suitcase to put back; I need a nap,
We need a nap. Hey hey!

I'll see if I can post a couple of pictures from my Paris trip...

Ok... during my visit, I tried to see parts of Paris that I missed on my past visits. One thing was the Botanical Gardens/Museum of Natural History:

 -
 -

I also went by Jardin Luxembourg, very pretty... even in winter. I really liked the gallery of statues depicting queens of France throughout history. Here are my favorite queens of France:

 -
Queen Catherine de´ Medici

 -
Mary Queen of Scots(almost queen of France)

 -
Whoops! How'd that get in there? []

Lovely song, Athene! [] []

*looks at Thingol's pics* Ooh, Mary Queen of Scots! [] ... yeah, that's it.

*can barely remember what she saw in Paris* Nearly 18 years ago, now. [] Vienna is fresher in my mind. []

I haven't posted this much in the lits in ages...

Feels kind of good, actually.

Of course, I'm having to re-read everything...but that's hardly a chore. []
