When you hear the term "Gothic" and the first thing that comes to your mind is the old Germanic language.

...and not the subculture of teenagers with dark makeup and trench coats.

When Polish children's songs and nursery rhymes get stuck in your head, and you go around singing them. (Hopefully none of those passers-by understood Polish. . . .)

... when you have the following conversations with three of your band directors:

- the different between Spain Spanish pronounciation and your Spanish (Mexican) (During this conversation an enssemble member said, "How do yo know? You just read Japanese books!" In your defense, ever since you started learning Finnish you haven't picked up a manga book. :o)

- what country the Slavic-sounding composer of your enssemble comes from.

- what is "kanji" in Japanese and how it connects with Mandarin Chinese.

- what language(s) they speak in Taiwan.

Crazy day in Band today. :D

- Kat

when you are almost late for work as you found a Japanese newspaper amongst the polish newspapers in your local supermarket and decided to buy it but it's not on the system. So you wait twenty minutes for the manager to turn up so she can sell it to you and you are pleased all day that you bought it.

or when the Japan Centre has used crumbled up sheets of a Japanese newspaper to pack and ship your new Ultimate Rice Cooker. Opening the box you forget the rice cooker and start trying to read the packing paper.
