When you go to some chicks dorm room to use her TV, because you think maybe it's jus your TV being weird, just to confirm that we don't have the German channel here anymore.   In which you want to petition to get that channel back... the Spanish and french channels still exist.. descrimination!

When you actually have a favorite dative preposition...

When you get off on writing random things in German on people's whiteboards on their door, many of whom I don't know :)

I'm such a creeper...

My new goal for when I take a road trip next summer:

Listen to all of a Pimsleur or Michel Thomas of a language nonstop and see how much I actually retain.

Oh, my gosh! That's just brilliant! :) I love how obviously bad their accents were at the beginning to show how much they'd learned at the end.

I'm going to rewatch this a few times.

YKYALN when, for lack of a better idea, your contribution to a family talent contest is a
presentation on the Chinese names of the pandas at the zoo, complete with family tree and
amateur attempts at writing the characters.

I came in ninth. The winner belched the alphabet. Win some, lose some.

You actually mourn the simplifications of New Assyrian over Old Babylonian (the loss of an m-ending on nouns, the
loss of a u-ending on subjunctive verbs in subordinate clauses).
