At work (when I still had my job) I shocked my collegues that in our 30 minutes lunch pause I took out my Turkish textbook and vocabulary book and went to a separate table to learn some Turkish vocabulary there. I think that such action had never happened at that workplace before. Very nerdy, indeed!

When people ask you why you don't learn Finnish and Hungarian too, now you are at it

- When you listen to E Nomine (a German band) for no other reason
but to listen to the very small amount of Latin they put in their songs :]

If you're into German bands who sing in Latin, definitely check out Corvus Corax. They're
amazing.

I used to always use my breaks at work for studying Japanese. Guess what, I was despised for it by some people. I am sorry but my coworkers boring and unstimulating conversation cannot possible compete with 30 minutes of reading a Japanese text or adding a few more Kanji.

When you would never watch a "soap opera" but love telenovelas because you can practice your Spanish..but secretly love the story lines.

When your immediate reply is to smile brightly, tell them "Yes, that's a great idea, I will do that!" and you actually mean it.

...when you know off the top of your head what language families Estonian, Wolof,
Amharic, Urdu, Burmese, Tagalog and Navajo belong to, can name several language isolates,
and have an informed opinion on whether or not Turkish is distantly related to Korean.

I think it'd be pretty impressive, and probably pretty nerdy, to know at least one language from all the main language families. I'd love to do just that one day, although it may well just be a dream :]
