Bloody language barriers!!..

Another slow day on the internet.. (what the hell?..)
I guess people really liked paperlilies idea of a "no internet week" o_O
..or not.. what do I know..
This whole internet inactivity gave me a chance to do some studying..
..calculating how much blood I will need for each experiment in my research.. thing.. :-P

You Could Definitely Be a Vampire

Immortality, staying pretty forever, not having to get a job... you could definitely eat some flesh for these things.
It's not that you're a murderer by nature. In fact, you're probably the furthest thing from it.
However, if you woke up a vampire, you'd certainly be able to adapt and enjoy your new lifestyle.
There might not be much better than living forever, even if it means giving up your soul.

What you would like best about being a vampire: Being a total outsider

What you would like least about being a vampire: Other vampires

The only thing that has been bugging me about this school project, is that the user manual for the machine I will use, is all in Danish.. -____-
I'm supposed to be pretty much fluent in it.. I mean, for 8 years, the school system has forced me to learn Danish..
..and because we are forced to learn it.. most of us are reluctant to use it (or at least I am..).
It's been 5 years since I stopped learning Danish (OMFG I feel old o_O ) and I've been kinda... brushing up on it this weekend..

..and I've come to discover that my poor head is having major language categorizing issues..
When I read the Danish thing.. I make it sound like Swedish.. or even Norwegian..
and I can't help it.. I have to stop myself and force it to be Danish..
..and when I use the little German I know, it comes out like Danish..
My brother was smart enough to pick German in school.. and not French like his silly sister, so now I find German textbooks around the house, start reading it.. and it becomes Danish.. pfft..
What is even weirder.. is that when I'm trying to speak some French, I substitute words I don't remember right away with FRIKKEN DANISH words!!
I know.. I suck..

I have always admired your ability to speak a million languages. Good thing you know the only language I know because it allows us to be friends!

Suck Bloood!


Katie (katieisclassy) made me listen to the song "Teenage Enema Nurses (in Bondage)", and that really has nothing to with anything... except it kinda fits in the background...


What kind of a device has a manual in Danish but not in English, jeez!

We are forced to learn Swedish and I serious don't have a clue after 6 years...

And we really don't say "perkele" like that...

LOL! yeah.. I hear "perkele" in my mind with a much harder R and someone looking like the lordi gang saying it (oh, so stereotypical of me).

So what you say is you gained knowledge of 5 (yeah "five") different languages?!?

Well... I guess you were right then... you TOTALLY suck :D

By the way...

Do you happen to be a distant relative of Giuseppe Mezzofanti?
