Nuns and quizzes

Learned the word for nun today: 'monja'.

I thought I'd misunderstood when my flatmate told me he was keeping his plastic tub (you know the ones you get cherry tomatoes in) for our other, older, flatmate to give to the nuns.

He speculates the nuns use them for plant pots or something.
I've nicked it, incidentally, for my art class. I need it more than them.

And then just now, watching a quiz show which I like because I understand almost everything, one of the questions was 'what's the name of the thing a nun wears?' which of course is a h√°bito.

What useful vocabulary it turned out to be! By the way, monk is 'monje'. I knew you'd want to know.
