You're trying to sleep and you get angry because people are shouting on the street
outside. Then you realise they're shouting in your target language, and you feel a lot
happier and relax again.

Around Christmas time, you walk out into the living room where your roommates and their boyfriends are and you notice on the menu guide on the TV says "Elf," and you isntantly think to yourself out loud say "eleven, wonder what that's about" after realizing what you said, you don't even feel an ounce of embarrassment.

- when the first thing you say upon hearing your brother is bored this summer is, "Learn a language." You are puzzled as to why he doesn't follow your advice.

- when you drop everything you do and go on a two-hour hunt when you find out you have no idea where one of your Finnish grammar books are; you still haven't found it and hope your Dad accidenally took it when he was packing.

(I'm still waiting for him to call to see whether he found it or not.)

Thanks, I hope he finds it, too, I mean, I know it only cost me around seven dollars, used (at least it wasn't my other one with the Audio CDs), but I still feel empty without it. *crosses fingers*

Ooh, got another one:

- when you are re-watching the Latin American Version of "Pinocchio" because you recently found out it was dubbed in Argentina, and you want to compare the Mexican and Argentinian accents.

. . . when you have to make some repairs on your computer, and you can't find the user's guide anywhere because the last time you saw it, you were using it as a bilingual text to learn some Spanish IT terminology. But it must be in the pile of language stuff somewhere . . . still searching!

When you print and laminate this chart

to keep next to your computer because you need these letters so often and can't keep the keyboards simultaneously open on a shared computer.
