The word “brilliant” means different things depending on who’s saying it. In the UK it’s a synonym for “good”. In North America it means “shiny”. Every now and again, when I travel, I pick up a local word and add it to my active vocabulary. On this trip I’m going to bring back “boot” with me. It might even be of some use if I ever get a car.

The other day someone called my blog “brilliant” and I don’t know what to make of this. I’d like to believe it’s true but the problem is that the same individual who said it, once convinced five people (himself included) that going to see Howard the Duck was a good idea. If you’ve ever seen Howard the Duck (it’s a movie) you’ll understand where I’m coming from.
