Re: the orthography, even we Suh-thun-uhs don't spell foreign forign, though we do say it that-a-way. But welcome aBoard, PikaPooch, anyway. P'raps you were in a hurry.

For by: Menurut saya, ada banyak orang di sini yang berbahasa asing. means "According to me, there are many people here who speak foreign (languages)". Good one, Bingley!

Like jimthedog I speak Spanish, but from eight to four, after this hour I use to read English. When drunk enough I even can speak a little.

Thank you Bingley

Ich spreche Deutsch! ich bin Amerikanerin, aber ich wohne seit mehr als zwei Jahren in Muenchen. Wenn Sie irgendwas in Deutsch wissen will, dann tue ich mein Bestes!

(I speak German! I'm American, but I have been living in Munich for more than two years. If you would like to know anything in German I'll do my best!)

Wow, the spell check had a real ball with this one :)

Our words are but a ball of yarn to the kitten Aenigma. She plays until the whole thing is unraveled and strewn about the room. Occasionally, she coughs up a bit in a hair ball.

I am amazed at how often long time members still waste time on the spell checker. I was exposed to it on my first post, but ever since have have avoided evoking it. It is a pathetic joke at best.

Dr Bill harrumphs«: I am amazed at how often long time members still waste time on the spell checker. I was exposed to it on my first post, but ever since have have avoided evoking it. It is a pathetic joke at best.

I beg to differ. Ănigma is warm, fuzzy and eccentric, not unlike many AWADers.

I find myself (imagine my surprise!) agreeing with dr. bill on this; the only thing fuzzy about 'nigma is its cold, calculating, abecedarian logic.

Ănigma sometimes ate my posts after checking them. That's when I stopped talking to her!
