Language ramblings
J-girl's card came in the mail yesterday. Thanks! *hugs* BTW, I always wondered, what do Aussies decorate for Christmas, since there are no pine (as far as I know) in Australia? Plastic trees or eukalyptus? :)

I am waiting for my grades to be posted and I need to review topics for oral exam in Italian. Then I need to write a letter in German about the exchange, but that will have to wait until after Italian, because for some reason German and Romance languages don't agree in my head, and tend to mix up leaving me having to evaluate every word, which language it belongs to. Never had language mix-up problems except when I try to use German and Spanish or Italian within short period of time. Sometimes my brain glitches altogether and I start speaking a randomly selected language, regardless of what language the other person speaks. It happened four or five times in my life, two of them - in the las six months...

You know you can just write that letter and send it over to have it "proof-read", right? :o)
(Just to kill your "Italian and German don't go together" argument. ;op )

Australian Pine

But then this could only be a matter of name - and not actually an Australian tree.

On the other hand, a Christmas Tree "has to be" a fir anyway. ;o)

And will you fly over and take the oral part of Italian exam for me? :) Because the problem is, if I do anything with German, every time I will try to speak Italian, I will have German words trying to squeeze themselves in whenever possible. I will send the draft of the letter to you, though, sometime Friday, probably. Thanks! *hugs*

As far as trees, in Russia we have firs, but here in US they use pines. I have a plastic tree because we have carpeting, and needles will be hiding there to jump out all through July or later... I miss the smell of the real tree in the house, though.

You sponsor the tickets and I'm game! *g*

(I know the feeling - I had the problem with English back at school - I would have all varieties of Italian words popping in my mind during English lessons. Nowadays it's the other way round...at times.)

We have a Fraser Fir and they are predominant in my little slice of the USA. Also, I speak pig latin, so if you have anything that needs a look see, just send it my way! ;)
