Thank you, Katharina "Uschi", for your list. Now there's only one more list missing, ahem.
As far as I remember, we hadn't agreed on a deadline for these lists. But it makes sense, of course, to have one, because without a complete list it's more difficult to properly prepare for the vocab test. So here it is: The official deadline for submitting your vocab list (you know who) is 29th Dec. 2008. If it hasn't arrived by then, I'll add ten words to the list myself and publish the official vocab list, which is going to be the basis for your vocab test, on 30th Dec. 2008.
And now for something completely different:
I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
YouTube offers you some of the most popular English christmas carols, e.g. "The First Noel" (sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir).
Another, quite different, but equally enjoyable example is "The Twelve Days of Christmas", presented in a highly artistic and at the same time really funny version by "Straight no chaser" - and, no, this is not the original version, they mix other christmas (and non-christmas) songs into it and generally enjoy their singing:
(My wishes for the new year will come along with the final vocab list.)
