    It's been longer than 24 hours...

    I'll answer it.

    It's Japanese for "Have a nice day" ;)

    Umm...I think it's German, but I could be wrong. And by the way, it's blatantly obvious that you're not Canadian if you use 'eh' in the wrong context (speaking from someone who uses it unconsciously and WAY too much). Now don't kick me off, but I don't live in Ontario. Think...Alberta. However, I'm FROM Ontario, so that should count, right? Right? And I want to move back-at least out there you have water. *sigh*

    It is German. I know exactly what it means, but I'm in BC, so I can't say what it is.

    Canuck_ is Canadian. He's my sock.

    Correction: learning German. I wish I did speak it. It's a difficult language, and I'm having a lot of trouble with the pronunciation. There are many sounds that do not exist in the English language, so they are hard to make. There are also 3 genders (like the french masculin and feminine) and there are really no rules governing them. Just have to memorize. Oh, and all nouns are capitalized. Don't ask why. ß makes a hard "s" sound.

    It's Huttese for "Keep your suction cups where I can see them."
