Thoughts on ELT, English and whatever else comes into my head
Well, that 12 months of being fabulous passed so quickly I wonder how I managed to fit so many jaw-droppingly fantastic achievements in.
I didn’t just get shit done, I Got Shit Done!
No, not merely that.
I GOT SHIT DONE.
I milked the life cow of every last drop and harvested the grapes of opportunity, crushed them into the sweet pulp of fulfillment and fermented it into a vintage year of success.
I was a determined seeker of public transport, often using multiple methods to get to other places. I continued to eat things, often fornicating with my lunch or smearing myself with truffle oil and then posting the results of my gastrogasms on social media.
This coming year: flat pack furniture. It’s the next logical step in the staggering feat that is following instructions and assembling stuff.
But I don’t just do things to make myself look good. No! I tirelessly work for the advancement of the wider world. My Twitter campaign to end the enslavement of the word “internet” by the capitalist I (so beloved of ELT publishers) may have come to naught but I refuse to give up. There’s no I in internet, this affects us all.
I will probably follow this post with a more serious but, ultimately, no less gloating reflection on the year, pretending it’s for your information/edification.
Happy New Year’s Eve!
