When finding a cheap copy of a grammar book on Amazon produces a surge of joy exceeding anything you felt last
Christmas.

... When you go to a mandatory "diversity training" and the
presenter asks the class "now, who here thinks English is a hard
language?" And your immediate gut-reaction is "oh hell no, you did
NOT just ask that question!" Much less, to a group of monolingual
anglophones... It's possible that I spend too much time on this
forum...

(disclaimer: I'm not knocking diversity. Or training. I love diversity.
I'm a language nerd.)

Nearly everyone raised their hand. I harumphed.

When you double check your foreign tweets even during an epic match (Real-Bayern yesterday), because it would be too embarrassing to make a mistake.

You're a language nerd when you buy this expensive clock featuring 5 preloaded and 18 additional languages: Verbarius Digitless Clock

(I'm not related to that website. I just found the clock to be a cool gadget for a language nerd!) :-)

Oh I love their products! Pity some are ridiculously expensive.
I just use FuzzyTime add-on instead :D I look at it more than at any other "clock" because I switched the default one off.

Cool find! Although sadly it looks like I'll never be able to afford one.

This sentence in particular made my eyes light up:

"It comes preloaded with English, German, Spanish, French, and Russian, but if you connect your Verbarius to the manufacturer's website, you can download over a dozen other languages from Esperanto to Welsh."

(I imagine there must be some apps out there for Mac and PC that do pretty much the same thing. ;) )

Thanks Serpent! I've added this now to my browser and switched to Russian for the time being. :)
