Happy Katanakka, everyone.

I found out how "Vauxhall" is pronounced today; like "voxel" (at least by the British). Since it looks French, I'd always thought it was either "vaw-hawl" or simply "vall" with the silent x-ness. Those crafty British.

I invented the best aerobic activity for me tonight. I'm no good at jumping rope and jumping jacks bore me, but I'm currently enthralled with beatboxing-boxing. I beatbox, right? and though I have no pretense to being insanely fast, I do alright.

And since beatboxing itself requires a lot of oxygen, adding boxing to it means that I'm straining within minutes. Though maybe that's technically anaerobic. I really don't pretend to understand health medicine.

I'll need some of the extra nines behind the decimal point as well to distinguish myself from a field where I've got a 2% chance of being among the top applicants selected to matriculate all over the place.
