YKYALNW: You feel the great urge to tell people in the UK that The Works
have a sale on French and Spanish books. Complete Teach Yourself (new but book only) is
£2.99! Their Collins French and Spanish School Dictionaries are £1.99 new.

and when you're thankful you went to the store with a friend who is used to your
obsession with languages...

(chatting in German): when you almost feel guilty replying on a question in English just because you can't
name the subjects that you study in German. Heck, you can barely do that in English, so even more guilt.

When you receive a Phrase-A-Day calendar as a gift, and you remove all the pages at once and sort them
into learning categories because you need those words NOW !

When you're wondering why your regular French TV channel isn't working, and you find out the reason on Hindi news.

(The channel is TV5 Monde, and the Hindi news was this morning's Namaskar Bharat, which reported that hackers have attacked TV5's servers, taking down the channel and website.)

I'm guilty of that sometimes, lol. Reading up on it is NOT the same as using it!
Thankfully, every single one of my recommendations really turned out to be pretty nifty
when I used it, so, no regrets there :D

When you translate sentences from Spanish to French in your head in the middle of the
night because you are so scared of Spanish pushing French out of your brain.

Well it depends. I've not used French in Action but I've used Destinos for Spanish, which is similar but less good as far as I can tell. It's fairly similar to giving advice on using one Assimil course based on your experience with another one.
