I've found a few bits on BBC Alba that are in Gaelic but have no English subtitles. It's sort of getting me want to learn a bit.

Saying that, I've been wanting to learn Finnish for ages but never got around to it... I suspect it's the problem of words that sound really cool to non-natives that actually turn out to mean the absolutely mundane, which is what caused me to lose interest in other languages in school.

I'm in a lucky place that the government has given me a £120 grant for an online learning course for Gaelic. Annoyingly it's a very Dublin-centric style of conversational size instead of an Ulster dialect, but at least it's a starting point.

To be fair to everyone who hopped aboard the sarcasm train at Gandalf there, checking the gigs & tours section once every few days or even weeks doesn't exactly take a lot of time :P

Had my sleep eeg today. As far as I know it looked pretty normal, and the drugs didn't whack me out as bad as it did for some people there. And my technician looked and sounded like Shae!
