So, “zedstarr” eh? What’s that about you may ask… Wikisplain Z*. Zed star. Zedstarr. Of course it is. Told you it was real. Well, imaginary. Well…. oh never mind.
So today I got to visit my “alma mater” – not a phrase I feel comfortable using, turns out it’s a (Latin) American English term, less so useful/used in British English – so what I really mean is I visited my old university.
