Unusually cheerful

Actually it's funny. The day has turned cloudy and with some northern winds unpleasantly cold. Work was pretty messy and it seemed like some of the "slaves" didn't really enjoy their weekends. My boss (of the moment) was just shitting her nonsense all over the place and my eyes started to ache because of rolling. Had to do quite some work and - what I REALLY hate - had to do a lot of planning (a yearly plan of saturday/sunday obligations being the nastiest).

And yes, despite all this, I feel unusually light and happy and joyful and alike today. Guess a good weekend had a lot to do with it.

I just hope this mood lasts at least for another day. Or two.

And soon off to Italian lessons.

Have a good one!!!!!

Enjoy your Italian lessons - are you just beginning, or have you been taking lessons for some time?

I took beginner's Italian at my first year at Glasgow University. It was fairly easy, given that I'd done six years of French and five years of Latin in high school. I don't remember much of it, but I think I could probably read signs and menus and things like that. I've been meaning to take some Spanish classes, given where I live, but I haven't gotten round to it yet.

¡El español es dificilísimo!
The verb system is more complex than the french and the italian ones!
And yes, we still use the subjunctive a lot!

Having lived within 20 miles of the Mexican border for about 15 years, I've absorbed some Spanish through basic exposure - especially signs and short descriptions of things. Also, in my job, I often have to get things sent out for translation into Spanish, so I've 'read' those, too. But, I do look forward to formally learning the language, and all its complexities.

Here are some details from Slovenian stuff:

- dual
- female, male and neutral
- six cases (with noun changing in each and every one of them)
- 12 declinations (3x4)
- all verbs seem irregular

an example:
declining the noun fant - a boy(male)
1. Who (is that)? Fant
2. Whom (you didn't see)? Fanta
3. To whom (you gave this sweet)? Fantu
4. Whom (you saw)? Fanta
5. By who (have you stopped)? (pri) Fantu
6. With whom (did you go)? (s) Fantom

Go figure... A tiny start LOL

Well, this is my first semester of Italian and I have to say I really enjoy it a lot. Why Italian?

Here's an answer:)

But.... I understand much more than I actually show. Guess I have an ear for languages.

English
Ahh ... all this talking about tongues made me horny,
especially after spending a part of weekend with 2 nice Italians.

Italiano
Ahh ... tutto questo parlare di lingue mi ha fatto divenire arrapato, specialmente dopo aver' passato una parte del wikend con due bei Italiani.

Slovene
Ahhh ... vse to govorjenje o jezikih me je zrajcalo, še posebej potem, ko sem del vikenda preživel z dvema lepima Italianoma.

Wish I could do the French version of that, but we never learned the word "horny" in school.

Would have been very useful when I was in Marseille, Aix-en-Provence and Corsica in 1985.... ;-)

Hey, I did Marseille and Aix and the surroundings in November. :)

It's lovely there, isn't it? I have some similar pics from the Marseille Basilica, including one of a very young and naive 21 year old....
