Je suis semblable melasse

Which translates to something like "I am like molasses". As in my writing is as slow as molasses, going up hill in--you guessed it--January. I didn't get much done this morning. I was going over what I had done yesterday and making some fixes. Which means to stay on track I have to complete three chapters tonight. Groan.

And completely unrelated to any of that, I have decided that I want to resurrect my French lessons from school and try to learn the language again. In truth, the languages I really want to learn are Russian and Gaelic, but I thought maybe it would be wise to start off with a foreign language I had some base knowledge of, not to mention one that used letters of the alphabet similar to my own. So I might look at doing that next year.

Then, once I master the language, I'm going to run away, bum around Paris and eventually end up living in a little villa in the South of France. Feel free to stop by for a visit if you'd like.

That does sound nice! Never picked up the french very well, but would see Paris in a heartbeat.

Sorry to hear about the slow progress. Hope it goes better soon.

As for French, yep, it's way easier than Russian or Gaelic :-) I'll be sure to drop by your villa in a few years!!

I always wanted to learn French. I took German instead in grad school for a requirement and it didn't stick with me very long.

We can visit each other since I'll have my Italian villa! LOL

Nikki said...

Ugh. French. Not good with that. Kissing, yes. Talking, no.

On second thought, maybe I already know everything I need to ...

Tess said...

Mmmm, du vin. J'aime le vin. Beaucoup *g*.

Hey Miss BABBELFISH CHEATER CHEATER CHEATER

Anyway, what I was going to say before I outted you is that once you get the french and russian down, and I perfect the spanish and italian... well... watch out world!

Now we just need money to take our newfound language skills on the road.

It is not babblefish, it's world lingo, and given that I need to learn the language I'm pretty sure I wasn't fooling anyone with my sudden ability to speak it. Now shut up and pass the auga.
