Done another WomenGamers article

I think I’ve finally come up with something that works for an article, and it’s pretty much done. No title yet, I’m working on that, but it’s nice to have something together finally. It’s been frustrating. I’ll send it out tonight if it proof’s okay, and maybe I’ll let them come up with a title. Or maybe not. I haven’t decided yet. It’s not as amusing as some of my other ones, it’s a bit more serious, but maybe it’s interesting, I guess we’ll have to wait and find out. I hate waiting to see how something is received by its readers.

          Merci beaucoup! Vous etes gentil.

          Damn, I’m out of practice in french… and I can’t remember what the ascii is for the accent on that e…

            ?. the e accented with an asian hat. =)

            i used to think all canadians speak french until i found out canada was only part of quebec. ;))

            my level of french is just enough to get me around geneva. switching to franglais is much comfortable. it doesn’t numb my tongue and i could avoid a speech impediment at the end of the day. ;))

            I could get by in Quebec, I took immersion (half my classes were in french) for 8 years or so, and was fluent by the end of that… I just haven’t used my french at all since I left high school. There isn’t a huge demand for french speaking in Toronto. I suppose if I was dumped somewhere french for a while, I’d pick it up again… and I can still watch french TV and get the gist of what’s going on. 😉

            uhm. so how do you find french? the language not the people. i still think it’s overrated as a romance language. i prefer hearing the italians and the spanish, more warmth i guess. the brits have even confined french only as a bedroom language, on which the frenchfolk say that english is just french, pronounced badly.

            well, don’t listen to my opinions, it’s not even worth two-cents. ;))

            have a nice day, lass. it’s the end of the day here… have to do my 5k run.

            bon soir?e.

            5k of running? Eep. My ankles would hate me.

            I find french long winded… it seems to take two or three times as long to say something in french than it would in English. I like the language, it’s great fun to talk, especially if I start thinking in french so it’s coming out naturally. As for romantic… if anyone tried speaking french to me in an attempt to be romantic, I would likely go into a giggling fit. Then again, traditional romanticism is pretty amusing in most cases anyhow. Don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate a romantic, I’m a romantic at heart, and all that… I just find all the traditional stuff (flowers, candy, dinner & a movie?) is too overdone. Be creatively romantic! Don’t fall into a stereotype!

            Well, that was a rant. 🙂 Hope your night is going well, I’m almost done work.

            good morning.

            uhm. i like rants. what i’m sick and tired of are bumper stickers that say, “count your joys instead of your woes.” it depresses me all the more.

            romance need not be a language. ditto on that. yes, but i still send flowers though, yellow roses no matter what the occasion is. i was with my ex (the mother of my 5 year-old little chinagirl) in milan last january. it was cold but there were flowershops open near the duomo. we just browsed but didn’t buy anything, suddenly this old man stood up and gave a sporadic burst of the lombard dialect, plucked a flower and gave it to her for free. he took my hand and placed it with hers. and said something like “L’inverno soffia il freddo di amore. Caldo il suo cuore, signore.” that’s a bad translation, but he meant *winter blows love cold. warm her heart.* and then i realized we were not cold at all, just distant. i mean, she’s still my best friend but the embers in both of us can’t be fed and keep aflame. shame, whenever i write this, it sounds like a movie. grrr.

            that old italian man’s gesture was very romantic. i wish i was that spontaneous. ahhh. ciao milano.

            definitely not a rant. ;))
