I have to admit, esperanto sounds so very italien with all the "o"'s everywhere.

Thank you my dear!

I don't care if I'm linguistically challenged. I can sing in languages, I just don't know what I'm saying... :rolleyes:

it says: oh, fluffstar, I am sorry about being rude

You can tell from the "esti malgxentilo", the gx is a "j" sound when you say it, so you get something sounding like gentle. Then with the mal, that means: rude, and esti makes it "to be rude"....I think

Mind you, today I was typing a letter (I'm a medical secretary, woo! ) about a 17 year old girl who was, and I quote directly "desperate to get pregnant." Why, why, why?
probably doesn't know about contraception, and maybe even the menstrual cycle... (you mean i don't automatically get pregnant when i...?) :rolleyes:

seriously though, the biological clock works in mysterious ways. apparently some of my friends have begun pushing the panic button (with regards to getting married and going the family way) at the grand old age of 21 :eek: . come on, 21!!! seems they are on the hunt for a suitable spouse, and have recruited parental aid too :eek: ... how... disturbing.

going by their timeline, i'd have a wife and 2 kids now! (still happily unattached, just in case any of you were wondering.)

oh, and i got "the job you have now" when using my full name on jobpredictor...
