You know there's only one way to find out Bebu 😉

 

Also I'm So Tired , I glimpsed at your avatar and thought it had a comic villain curly moustache on it. I'm now disappointed that it doesn't. 

For my Christmas wish, I want your avatar to have a curly moustache!

Did you know Febreze in French is pronounced "fah-brez"?

 

Well, now you do.

 

Quand je bois Febreze, je me sens à l'aise 🙂

Here's one to impress your teacher with (my back-up plan if no-one wants to hire me is to be a language teacher OR if I make big bucks, retire at 40 and want to spend 20 hours a week doing something).

It's actually 'jolies étoiles' and here's why:

 

BAGS- Beauty, Age, Goodness, Size, these prepositions come before the noun.

Beauty- Beau, joli

Age- Vieux, jeune, nouveau

Goodness- Bon, meilleur, mauvais

Size- Petit, haut, gros, grand

 

Naturally because languages can't be easy, there are a few exceptions e.g. laid, âgée, méchant, mince, these all come after the noun.

Heh and here I was thinking the French Academy (Académie française!) was there to sort the language out a-hard-days-night-george-9 -- le penguin noir

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

The Académie make life easier?!?!?!

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

No

 

Actually that should be in French so

Ahonhonhonhonhonhonhonhon

Non.

 

In all honestly, the Académie have done a few things in recent years to simplify French, the circumflex- â is 'officially' obselete apart from in cases where a word without the circumflex also exists (so as to avoid confusion). Since 2016, school books have to reflect this. 

 

At the minute there's strong calls to change the orthography because it's a different language to spell, unlike say German where you pronounce every single letter, somehow the word 'nez' is pronounced 'nay'....BUT THERE'S A 'Z' THERE.

My dad decided to wake me up by first whistling 'All You Need Is Love ' very loudly and in some detail (George's obnoxious violin crescendo and She Loves You was included) before giving in and blasting it over the stereo. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

Oh, now it's It's All Too Much (must be the Yellow Submarine Songtrack ). Now that's a good start to a day a-hard-days-night-george-9

Anyway, I have a speech to give later so wish me luck! I think it will be fine, because I have ~0.1% anxiety about this sort of thing and I'm being earwashed with happy Beatles. ahdn_ringo_09

Good luck, @50yearslate. If you start coughing, just take your foot off the gas and don't do anything radical with the steering wheel. You'll be fine.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.
