    Then declared he didn't know. So who knows!

    Sulphate... Carcinogenic? Fabulous news for me... What doesn't cause cancer these days! Christ! But come on, that is one hell of a pretzel, considering that the closest I have ever had to a proper one is them chocolate coated ones they used to sell about 10 years ago, they were magic!

    :hugs: Ich hoffe, dass du dich von deiner Kälte bald erholen:hugs:

    Für mich, geht es gut danke:hugs: Ich habe heute nichts getan, aber später muß ich meine Freunden treffen Ich habe vor nur ein bißchen Alkohol zu trinken, und bei mir später nicht zu gerauscht werden, weil es immer der Fall ist:p: Deshalb, ignorieren sie mich später, wenn ich hier posten, denn es wird total Scheiße:p:

    Hast du heute Pläne?
    Danke, ich auch! :hugs:
    Heute fühle ich mich ein bisschen besser.
    Hast du einen schönen Abend gehabt? Glücklicherweise hast du hier dich nicht geniert!

    Heute bin ich einkaufen gegangen, aber leider habe ich nichts gekauft! Die Reihen waren gewaltig!

    Jetzt streiten sich meine Schwester und meine Mutti... es bringt mich auf die Palme!

    Hast du Pläne für Silvester?

    Doesn't actually stand for anything. It was a nickname I made for myself ages ago to protect my identity online and I've just kept it ever since.

    Thanks everyone for clearing up the "I need a hug" business.
    So just to clarify - I could say "Die kann ich jetzt gebrauchen" - literally, "Now I can use that"? And you'd use "die" not "das" for "that" because you're referring to a feminine noun....? 'Cause I always just say "das"

    Damn, I was looking forward to more random guessing.

    Yes, but you could use 'das' (i.e. referring to being hugged rather than the hug itself) as well.

    Nein, du musst nicht. Aber du kannst.

    Use whichever language you prefer, really...

    Es würde nützlicher sein, wenn du Deutsch sprichst.

    Hallo! Wie Gehts?

    Do you think it's possible to learn fluent by the time I finish uni?
    I've learnt to GCSE standard and spent 2 weeks in Germany (on exchange) I'm going again for a week before uni to stay with my ex-exchange partner. I also want to learn spanish :rolleyes: . Either way I'm going to try. Your thoughts would be most appreciated anyway! Thanks

    Tschüs!

    Yeah, course it's possible. The more you practise, the easier it'll get.

    Oops, missed that one. You're right, "für" doesn't really work, but "zu" sounds a bit dodgy to me as well. "Über" or "an" is what I'd be most likely to use.
