Plus, my arm tattoo is literally 12 quotes from texts I came across during my first degree, in six different languages -- it's safe to say that yes, I am a nerd, and I am proud of it. :michaelbay:

and here I thought me being able to ask someone how they are doing in spanish was impressive

Como esta?

Did I say that right?

There's something along the lines of an accent on one of those letters, I'm sure of it...


Hey, knowing any more than one language is an achievement, and it's always a good thing to know, even if it's very basic basics! I had the opportunity and possibility to follow those studies, but I am perfectly aware that not everyone can.

Do you have no Vietnamese in you, language-wise? Did no one in the family teach you as you were growing up? That's how I got Italian and English at the same time!

For me, French was high school, Spanish is self-taught, same with Dutch, when I was dating a Dutch woman, and Japanese is my latest self-taught endeavour. I also did a British Sign Language course at university, but haven't practiced in years. :-?

I learned a little Japanese from a sushi restaurant I worked at. Just bits and peices though. I'd like to learn more at some point though.

Mmmm now I want sushi. Spicy tuna roll kudasai (please).

I know everyone is fascinated with Japan and Japanese food, but - if I have to be honest - I just like food. Any food. I'll try anything (within vegetarian boundaries), and sure, I do have favourites, but I'm not obsessed over types of food or cuisines. I never really figured out how some people develop that type of attraction, actually. :-?

And to answer an unspoken question: pizza is probably my go-to favourite food. Predictable, but hey. Pizza is good, and you can do things to it to make it fit your taste more! (Waiting for someone to quote me out of context here in 3.. 2.. )

I love Asian food. (Of course I like most food from all over the world) I think the reason I like Asian is because my favorites are meat, veggies and rice which are staples in their cuisine. While I do like hard cheese anything creamy will give me heartburn and I never liked the taste of milk.

As far as pizza goes gimmie meat and veggies. I could eat pizza for days on end. My favorite meal is probably going to a restaurant called Mongolian Grill. You get to fill a bowl with veggies of your choice and choose which kind of meat (or tofu) you want and they grill it up and serve it with rice. (Grilled mushrooms, onions and peppers are the bomb)

Growing up Vietnamese, I could kinda read it, and could speak it - but my parents weren't militant about me or my older sis to only speak in Vietnamese...so we didn't. My wife is a blue-eyed blonde and although I've taught her some (as well as the kids), it's nothing substantial. I'd love them to take languages....

I love gaming and anime, so Japanese (2yrs in HS) was fun - even went to Japan first for my initial trip outside the US! They were so nice...and clean. And love green tea, pachinko and fish. <3

I don't no much about the French I took -- my wife and I always wanted to go to France. Great food & cinema!! They were primarily @$$h0l3s to me in Paris, sadly living up to the stereotypes....but I made some friends, at least.

I've traveled quite a bit to Europe for fun and most of Asia for work -- I dunno if Italy or Thailand is #superior.

Next time I go to Asia again, you bet I'll hunt for TFs!! :RUBSIGN:

If we're going good, Pizza and Wings are my thing. Arizona Ranch and Boom Boom sauce baby!

I love sandwiches though. If I can make a sandwich, I will.

Dessert wise, Ice cream is the best, as is Puppy Chow. Actually, Chocolate reins supreme. Especially chocolate and peanut butter!

See, in British English, pants are underwear.
So we're all correct in our current levels of undress.

Sadly, I'm at work, so I'm expected to wear appropriate pantage.

Though if I end up in freight, this buggers are coming off and my comfier Spaldings are going on.

Also, I think my eyes are scarred by reading all of this... Back to drinking and Va'alentining it with the GF

Edit: I just spit out my drink at that last post
