Because English is weird..

Question for the Latin buffs around the place:

Is there a rule about using 'i' as a plural for a noun in Latin? Like - octopus = octopi, penis = penises, radius = radii, etc? All of these nouns end in 's', but the way they are pluralised is different. What's the rule for this? And Dr Wheel says the plural of virus is viri. I think it's viruses. There must be resolution!


I also made a label since you can get these printed for cheap-as...

I considered putting an email address on the label but since I already have two more things on The List since mentioning that this one was almost finished, I'm not sure I want to make it that easy for people to get in touch...

Today I am in another all day meeting, because all-day meetings are character building. *nod* I am going to have SO MUCH CHARACTER!

And I'll be Fidelling tonight. I've quite enjoyed the smaller crowd the last couple of weeks. Big groups of people are a bit scary and I never feel as though I've got to talk with everyone if there's more than about 10 people there. I think summer lends itself better to big-group socialising, and winter to cosy get-togethers of a few people. Hmm..
