*creeps in*

Ooooooh. Sparkly new *checks for traces of dust*. What's going on in here then?

*runs back out*

'You know if someone asks for grammar advice (in English),' she shouts from back in the safety of AW's grammar and syntax forum, 'Does this mean we have to stick to rules of standard grammar to help any ESL?'

I spoiled the "Short Fiction" subforum of the AW Library. I'll take sloppy thirds on this one.

*chuckles darkly* had to make sure I asked a question just to get my hands on this toned looking thing...Bad, bad girl...

But ask who is at fault here, the poor souls who can't resist temptation -- or those who deliberately put temptation in our way knowing we can't resist temptation. I mean, give a pyromaniac some matches...

A dark, evil place.

Someone said there's good beer to be had in here. Where is it?

Bonjour!

I don't really speak French, I just like to pretend . . . hopefully one day I'll be fluent, but for now I'm a beginner.

But really . . .:nothing

Where else do you think such a sparkly unicorn mod *cough* - sorry, still having trouble with that word - could live?

But of course!

Only Specklusitania is such a mouthful and most people are familiar with the word Portugal, so I just use that instead.

French! I love French. I originally signed up to take it in school, but got bumped into German because of scheduling conflicts. So, I'm going on my second year of German, and learning some Romanian and Lithuanian in my free time.

I am proud to be a part of the spoiling of this sub-forum.
