@bonaduz the hood of his citroen.
No worries Mimi. I think it's funny that most people on the web misspell my username. Maybe it's because it's not English, so people just fill the blanks in their heads and end up typing what makes sense to them :D
p.s. I think your English is very good!
OMG estatica sorry I didnt read your nickname properly god im pissing myself laughing because of how stupid I was I mean elastica doesnt mean anything but anyway..
Oh wow, thanks for the compliment! I tend to write English as I was taught at school, so it's hard to use colloquialisms or slang in general. I do understand the meanings when I read you guys, I just never know how to use them adequately myself.
@mimi I always find so funny when you call me elastica instead of estatica! In Portuguese, the first means elastic, while the last (the one I use) means static. :D
Oh yes km st patrick! As I studied english linguistics we celebrated it, we had fun
Entwife would you have a jisbon scenario up your sleave by any chance?
I could speak dutch and spanish but the lack of practice caused me to forget everything..
@bonaduz Oh you got me on that one. roflmao. I don't need to be using the pointy finger at anyone. *sigh*
Thanks km I do think elastica can speak really well you cant see shes not a native speaker imo. Thats what Im aiming for.
Lol you lot crack me up big time!!
@KM - thank you very much, I try. Oh right, St.Partick's Day today. It's not something I grew up with or is celebrated her, so I forgot! Enjoy!
@Entwife - I wouldn't talk about bad girls, if I were you!!! :-D
Anyways, my God daughter (1 1/2) is coming over. Gotta go. Bye all, have fun tonight!
You're tie-breaker has always been my best defense to the they are "brother and sister" or "parental" argument. All romantic love, éros, develops a level of storgē and philía within it to form familial bonds and hence achieve agápe.
oooooooo @bonaduz, you bad bad girl! lol
You, Mimi, and estatica are truly impressive in the language department.
My 1/4 Irish and the better half's 1/2 Irish demands a little love today: Chocolate and Guinness Cupcakes with Baileys Irish Cream Frosting. So must focus a bit.
@Huisclothes - what would he seduce her over though???
@huisclothes Too right! Seduction comments are not sibling! Good catch!
i'd like to offer the tie-breaker about whether or not lisbon and jane have a bro and sis relationship. year one, when he said, i wouldn't seduce you over a meal, that would be very sophomoric. when a man says that to a woman, there's no way to come back from it. the die is cast. you might rebuff him. but he's not your sibling and you know where his mind is going when you bend over forward or backward. since the beginning, for me, all their interactions have been colored by that. even if i had no interest in him, i would remember that was said to me every day and every time i saw that person.
@KM and @estatica I, too, love it when Patrick gets punched in the nose. It's the funniest thing ever to me. He always deserves it and has only managed to duck once I think (have to watch and document :-)) -- in the episode with his wife as guest star. I LOVED it when Lisbon got him, I can't remember if it was once or twice. This episode had a baby in it, my other favorite Patrick Jane thing--he is so totally lovely with children, just lights up, I'm sure he was such a wonderful father. And maybe he can be again, eh?
How charming. Your husband does sound brilliant. And, my better half and I are more like you, I speak the working Spanish (and Danish), but he speaks the working French,
cont. Simon was kidding, but he was absolutly serious and made it clear, that everybody on the set had to be treated fair. Sounds like he is a very decent guy!
@KM - wow! I can't keep up with that many languages! Awsome that your kids have the opportunity to learn them all! I am able to communicate more or less successful in french and spanish. I spent one year in an italian speaking bording school way back when, and am still able to read and speak italian pretty good (even though I forgot a lot)! My older son is determined to go and live in Switzerland after high school. We'll see, he is only 13 yet!
@Mimi - we live in British Columbia, way in the west. Only Quebeq is french speaking in Canada, but all the kids have to learn french in school.
I read a nice story yesterday: This woman was a make up artist for extras of TM in season 2. One of the extras was placed on a certain spot, action was called, Simon walked in and she was in the way and got yelled at by the director. Everybody got back in their chairs, new set up, new 'action' was called, but Simon refused to act, until the director appologized to the extra! The director thought that
all these children with language skills is so impressive. i guess this is the time to learn when your mind is still able to learn better. my hub lived in france and taught at the sorbonne and then went to med school in mexico so he sort of speaks french and spanish but winds up speaking a mix of both, alternating languages word by word. the only people who understand him tend to be italians. i think they're just nice and try hard. anyway, it's hysterical. he once asked a woman if she could had a table where they make clothes flat.
i speak what i'd call eating and shopping french. enough to spend money and stuff my face. i do have a pretty good vocabulary and accent.
This sounds awful, but I love it when Jane gets punched. I wish Lisbon would punch him more. It would do them both a favour: 1)Lisbon needs to relieve some of her stress and 2) Jane deserves a good punch every now and then to keep himself in check. :D
Sorry for the darn typos, damn phone.
Go Entwife! You shall be my authority on how many hits Patrick has taken to his schnozzola, schnozz, schnozzle!
At my children's school the language options are Spanish, Mandarin,, and Japanese. So they have had a year each of Mandarine and Japanese, but selected Spanish as the language they would formally test in at year 11 or 12. The eldest seems to have a knack for languages and tested at year 11, and she passed high enough to earn Uni credits. The youngest, my boy, does not seem to enjoy languages as well and likely test at year 12. And, my sister-in-law is Cantonese (from Hong Kong) and neither nephew wants to be truly fluent in either Cantonese are Mandarin. And will end up beautiful half Cantonese men who are fluent in Spanish at this rate. But, they are growing up in Los Angeles.
