SUMMARY FOR JUNE 2009

Fasulye likes Science Daily and has signed up for no less than three of its newsletters

Fasulye (DU): Is seriously thinking over the suggestion to become a language teacher, but you need a diploma for that. The word "Vietsbode" doesn't exist, - use "bote" or "kourier" (with a 'k' ?)


Yes, I have tried out 3 newsletters of "Science Daily", but they only show a big amount of headlines, it's more confusing than a joy for my eyes to read 50 headlines. The articles themselves may be interesting, but such types of newsletters are not what I was searching for.

As a consequence, I cancelled all those 3 newsletters again. Bad luck!

The word "fiets" = "bicycle" is written with an "f". The German word "der Bote" has to be translated into "de koerier" "oe" = German "u" -sound. This is an unlucky example how my false word causes even more mistakes. The "ou" - sound in Dutch = "au" - sound in German. What might happen is that beginners of Dutch now learn my false word and the resulting mistakes as well.   

Citaat uit Van Dale Handwoordenboek: "koerier" = bode belast met het overbrengen van depeches of mondelinge berichten b.v. van staats- of militair belang

It should be: Fasulye has been corresponding with her Swedish penfriend since 1996. (We are still corresponding.)

All the rest is OK.

Your monthly summaries are very useful. Thanks for this extra work!

Jar-Ptitsa (DU): Something about having seen a butterfly


The butterfly was on me!!! only some seconds and I wrote about the colour: when he was on my blue/turquoise skirt he looked red, black and white but when he was on a purple flower he looked orange.

ar-Ptitsa (DU): suggests that Fasulye should find an ergotherapeut, that can suggest some suitable job alternatives. On Jar-Ptitsa's list was mentioned the menial job of "vietsbode" (bike courier or messenger), but for Fasulye it might be better to become a language teacher - teachers can move around as much as they wish while teaching. Btw. the spellingchecker doesn't accept "vietsbode".


NOT on my list!!! On my list were some professions but not this one: my occupational therapist made this list and some were boring ones and others very interetsing but NOT somethings like "vietsbode" fasule told that she and her friends had this idea. It seems a nasty, complicated and dangerous job, in my opinion, therefore I told her she would be veyr good teacher of languages. yes, my spellchecker didn't want "vietsbode"

the other infos are ok I think.


fasulye, this cat liked your brithday cake hahahaah!!

*Vietsbode shouldn't be on anybody's joblist, - and not just because the name doesn't exist. And that cat is going to get sick if it eats the birthday cake on the picture.

Don't worry, I make sometimes false words as well. it's not a disaster. a person told me that normally, it's expected of all the people that we say the words which exist and are the standard ones, therfore recommend this, but all the words are invented by someone one time. Beginners of dutch don't learn your word I think, but I learned it LOL!!!

me (GER): Something about Wagner's opera tetralogy the Niebelungenring and its sources, - I used it as relaxation music during a hernia operation.


I hope that you will feel better soon and haven't pain.

I made this photo some mnoths ago.

Fasulye (GER) wishes me a speedy recovery. She is aware that classical music is said to have a tranquilizing effect, but only if you like it.


yes, if you hate it, it would be not at all tranquilizing but absolutely annoying!!!!

Hey, toucans in Belgium? I'm sitting at my job right now (where it luckily is very quiet), but when I get back home I'll find a couple of my own toucan photos for you.

Below follows a list of some of the music I heard while being stitched together:

Einzug der Götter in Walhalla (Rheingold)
Walkürenritt (Die Walküre)
Siegfried's Trauermarsch (Götterdämmerung)

Some people like this kind of music, some don't. As for Mr. Wagner himself he was by all accounts a fairly nasty kind of person, but in my eyes a magnificent composer.

And to Fasulye: "kourier" only gives 701 hits in Google (limited to Dutch), while "Courier" gives 185,000 - but many of these are quotes from other languages, where it is used for instance in names for newspapers. "Fiets courier" gives 8, so it exists, but is exceedingly rare. Maybe it is just too common to drive a bicycle in the Netherlands and Belgium so that you just don't need a special word for it.

By the way, I have just read in the Dutch Wikipedia that there also was a short, but nasty global warming between the Paleocene and the Eocene, - and even here the release of hydrates from the seafloor seems to have been the factor that made a gradual temperature hike suddenly mutate into a catastrophical event, enough to separate two geological epochs.

I want to see those toucan photos :-)


I like veyr much some things of Wagner, but Walkürenritt I don't like such an agitated thing, especially the violins' panic noise and I don't like music which is grandiose. I prefer slow movements or arias etc, I searched on youtube for some examples but all those videos are very old (the sound was bad quality) or the singer or orchestra weren't good (my opinion). More gentle music I like, sad or peaceful, not loud. for example Fauré, Brahms, Chopin, Mozart, JS Bach:

Chopin, Argerich

Chopin - Pollini

Mozart - de Larrocha

Brahms sym 2

Iversen, you didn't change the infos in your summary about "vietsbode' which was NOT on my list at all but Fasulye's friends suggested it her!!!

OK, I'll change the information about the biking maniac profession right away, - and here is a toucan called 'Pio tico' in Central America where it lives. But the photo is from Amnéville Aquarium in France:



Here is a Youtube clip with some "bike couriers", and here a whole Wikipedia article about that noble profession.
