Oh that's not polluting:) But it's weird, I had only 72 in my inbox. Deleted some more now.
If this still doesn't work, my email is serpentti at суоми24 точка фи :)

While I'm at it I'd like to share some good news. I'm extremely motivated for Danish, thanks to all the recent talk in the forum. Especially thanks to Monty :) Which in turn makes me more motivated for German, thanks to Julie ♥
Coming soon: an embarrassing update about the money spent on Super Challenge stuff:D

Obrigada :) Yes, I love it! I support several teams but if I have to choose one it'll be them.

I found this in marco.of.europa's log and just had to share:

Today I was waiting at a bus stop. I saw a mother and her young daughter (about 4 years old) walking along the footpath. Beyond the footpath was a football pitch covered with frost. On the pitch blackbirds hopped about. The girl exclaimed in an excited high pitched squeal "Look at the birds doing ten-niece!" and then happily skipped on. The incident reminded me of my own efforts to learn a language; of attempting to learn correct pronunciation (tennis), vocabulary (football rather than tennis) and verb choice ('playing' rather than 'doing'). It also reminded me that mistakes and imperfection are a natural part of language learning. I tend to become frustrated and disheartened when I make little mistakes. Perhaps I could learn a lot from that little girl's relaxed carefree attitude and just allow myself to freely communicate in the language without worrying about little mistakes which can and will be remedied in time.

My orders from the UK and Italy have arrived, will update the list after I visit the post office tomorrow:)

Also, very excited about my Belarusian 6WC:) Found a great source of movies in Belarusian. It's a torrent site so I'll just say the word баравік.
