This is where you can say something you learned today that you found interesting or just thought you'd like to share here.

So, today I learned that when I wait for the bus, but have to get the late bus, the bus you see going up the road will be the bus you get on. Cause you see, the bus I get usually has 2 floors, but this morning, I saw a bus with just 1 floor go up and the number on it was the number of the bus I get, Some time later, I realised that I'd end up getting on that bus as it came down the other way, and I was right.

So...what did you learn today?

I learned not to eat Brazilian Salsa flavoured crisps...The hard way.

I also learned not to stand close to the windows through the same method.

I learned that if your stepdad gets you up by turning on the light in your room, resulting in your eyes hurting because of the sudden change in brighteness, you can stop that from happening by getting out of bed and opening the door just as he's about to do it.

I learned that if I give a boy who thinks my friend is weird the evil eye he looks like nothing happened.

Dear Princess Celestia (sorry, force of habit xD),

Today, I learned that truly awesome friends will notice that you're wearing a mockingjay necklace and matching earrings and compliment you on them (or at the very least not laugh at you for it).

Your faithful student,
Twilight Sparkle Raven

I learned that I can forget about the songs I put in a certain order in "favourites" on my mp3 player, so I'll expect some songs, but will have forgotten about some and then be suprised when they come up.

(Did you see that on the TV? Cause I saw something about comic heroes last night on a BBC show...)

I learned that I can get easily ignored, even when I'm doing and saying interesting things.

Yeah, on the One SHow. I was more interested about Cake Club however. XD

Ooh. You are not allowed to bring in tarts, pies or cupcakes to the Cake Club, but they won't turn you away.

Do you watch the One Show often? And why did you learn it today, did you watch a recording or a repeat?

I watch it nearly every day of the week. I get so annoyed that it starts a few minutes before 7, though. You see we watch this boring show on BBC HD first, and it ends at about 7.59, so when Stepdad changes the channel, it's already started, and it's even worse when it's on the first clip already and I don't get to see who the guest is right away. :angry:

I recently learned that the ampersand was derived from 'et', the Latin word for 'and'.
