Need a clue on your b/w movie photo. Rats! You always get mine!
Je lis et écris beaucoup mieux que je ne parle. J'apprends depuis l'age de 11 ans! (J'en ai 22 à présent, lol). J'écris à une correspondante qui habite à Québec ce qui m'a vraiment aidé. Et je lis, je lis, je lis sans cesse. Chaque jour j'essaie de lire ou d'écouter un peu de francais. Il faut pratiquer tout le temps pour se perfectionner! Mais étrangement je n'ai pas envie de vivre pendant un temps en France...je crois que j'aime la langue plus que le pays, ahah! Bien entendu, je voudrais voyager au Canada pour rencontrer mon amie épistolaire un jour. I really want to learn German. I keep having false starts with it. I'm scared that if I learn that too, the German might start replacing the French in my head, lol. This sounds so pretentious and arseholey, but it was actually after having read Kafka that I really wanted to learn the language in which he wrote.
You're reading The Fountainhead now, eh? How're you liking it so far? (And I like the new avatar; did you just see the film as well? It's quite good!)
That sounds a good way to avoid road rage. If I ever got a car, I'd get those language learning CD sets, ha.Flicked through The Road in a bookshop today. There was a distinct lack of speech marks! But hey, that's cool. French denotes dialogue differently to English, I'm used to the missing "". That's a good thing about learning a foreign language, the realisation that punctuation can be used in completely different ways.Saw Perdido Street Station in a charity shop - was tempted to buy but the copy was a bit too battered! My Lord, it's a brick!
I've also been to the UK once, for a week with school. I didn't really enjoy it that much, but that's probably because I didn't get along very well with my host family... I'll give it another try one day. :)Yes, I've heard about the dialect in Québec, should be interesting. ;) I hope my French will have improved a great deal by the time I'm going there...Thanks, I hope so too!
I thought of playing my still grieving widow card to make Geeze feel like crap but it wasn't worth it - people like that are just don't get it ........ Starbucks is a polite group for the most part but it is open so any moron can get in. Apparently Geeze is a Cdn - very porr social performance for a Canuck and a bit of a team killer. We have a french military saying for this: Les tueurs des équipes - C' est toujours l 'imbécile avec le lance-flammes. Toujours!
Thanks! It fits with Under The Dome; they are desperate for fuel. Fits for reality too! :)
I can't wait to see the movie!
You make a lovely couple! I hope you'll find every happiness with each other!
"What was sleep, after all, but the process by which we dumped our insanity into a dark subconscious pit and came out on the other side ready to eat cereal instead of the neighbor's children?"
I didn't know the story. It's real creepy. It's narrated by The Man. I got the disc for £3.00 for 6 stories. Bargain!
It's slang - and very Quebecois.
Oh - I pay a flat fee too but up to a certain download cap - apparently that cap is exceeded by 1002 emails in a single download.
I deride lists as well. I find that they hem me in and limit my horizons, whether they are a top 100 or top 1001 list (especially when the latter generates the same number of emails). BTW: A handy tip - don't check your email using your mobile 3G network when there are 1002 emails waiting for you. Cha-ching, cha-ching.
Mel - I'm not sure what all the hype was about - it's decent but highly repetitive satire. Not good satire and certainly not great satire.
I'd say you have a fondness for the dog's bollocks too, but that is :- P.S stop adding books I can't afford them all, but yum yum!
Hola, Halo!ah, i never get tired of that :D
Hey, my Mom raised fat kids, not dumb ones (wink)
