Just getting the daily Izzard fix...  
Was grading Latin tests (for Latin I on noun and adjective endings in case you were wondering. Hmm, better than yesterday, I see) and had this bit pop into my head:

-"Two languages in one head! No one can live at that speed!"
-"But the Dutch speak four languages and smoke marijuana?"
-"Well, everyone knows that marijuana is a drug-enhancement that will cause you to come last in a race of eight million other runners who are all dead."

So my excuse for not speaking a second language is that I need more marijuana.

However, subjunctive verbs are coming along nicely. I rather like subjunctives, I think. So wonderfully ambiguous when taken out of context. As everything I translate is taken out of context.

Oh, totally. I'm always walking around with the urge to shout out "I am the Emperor Fabulous!" or talk like James Mason. It's fun!
