while this is a linguistic playground for me, it's also some great practice! i've been introduced to one idiomatic metaphor that i've not bothered to look up, but it's cute: souris, la vie est un fromage. yes, i agree, life is a cheese.
prend-le, p'tite souris!
i've been challenged to actually communicate, but reading the conversations in french also helps me know how to articulate what i want to say. my syntax parsing/production system is working so well that it affects my syntax when speaking english. this is good, mind you. franglais is just one step from français!
i have the impression that my fellow players like me and think i'm funny. thank God they know i'm american ("englaise" haha) and forgive me for my faux pas -- sometimes. according to them i'm "full smath" whatever that means; all i know is i convince some people at first that i'm quebécoise and surprise them by saying i'm americaine. i can't seem to find a quebécois internet speak dictionnaire, though, so many things will be unfotunately left to the devices of my imagination.
alors, i'm getting my hairs did today, maybe kinda short, like 3 in past my chin. all the same, fewer layers for a more dramatic, kicker type look.
