    ^^^ ^:)^ [face_laugh] We have a theme video for this thread!

    And you're not alone Lazy K, I don't have a middle name either. But I do get to write my name in a fancy alphabet, so I decided that it makes up for it.

    Middle names, schmiddle names. My name in Serbian cyrillic makes up for lack of a middle name. Then again, people have been giving me odd names based on how they see me. One person used to call me Alisa, one used to call me Esma.

    And my initials are IT. Stephen King loves me.

    Also, hey, there's at least three of us with no middle names now. Coincidentally, we're probably the only three non-Anglophone folks who post in this thread. o_O

    Sometimes I wonder if the simple fact that most other non-Anglophones on here are either slightly odd in terms of social interaction, struggling with English or, well, both, is the reason they never come here. :(


    I think it fits. As in...could not be better. :D And...she does post announcements.

    I need one of those silly gifs of a person realising stuff now. :eek:

    My initials are boring: SMN. The funny thing is that save for one letter difference, my last name is an anagram of my first name.

    Are there any non-native English speakers other than us three writing and posting fics right now? I've met a few on other boards, but I don't think I saw anyone else here in a loooong time.

    Edit: Not counting AzureAngel2 of course, and if anyone's in touch please say hi from me.

    Blame. I'd definitely go with blame.



    My mom and I share a first name but have different middle names and my middle initial is E. My aunt for some reason refused to call me by the nickname everyone else called me (and I liked) so she'd just call me M.E.. I always thought it felt a little strange because she was saying me, but talking about or to me.

    Chyntuck, IIRC earlybird-obi-wan is Dutch, and Gamiel is Swedish, plus I think there are a couple of other non-native English speakers as well that I haven't seen recently.

    I think they put some nice drugs in the tap water today, when I managed to...forget that Gamiel existed for a moment here?!

    And earlier today, I was convinced that Eros Ramazzotti was a tree frog in a past life.

    Gamiel is a horrible tease. He keeps coming up with great ideas for world-building but he never turns them into stories. And now we know that he has four names :eek: :p

    Something to think about:

    None of these words rhyme: cough, rough, though, and through.

    But pony and bologna rhyme. 8-}

    Go home English, you're drunk. :p

    Is that how you pronounce Bologna in English? I DON'T WANNA LIVE ON THIS PLANET ANYMORE.

    It's bolo-nyah, dangamit. :p

    Bologna isn't an English word; it's Italian. ;)

    How the bloody hell is it possible to make bologna rhyme with pony? :confused:

    In other news, the neighbours across the street are having a very loud party. Of course it had to be on the Friday night when I'm staying at home with plans to go to bed early. This is when it teach you all the word γκαντεμιά (gkantemiá), which is Greek for Murphy's Law.

    In America, "bologna" is a sandwich meat pronounced "baloney". 8-}8-}8-}

    Canada too. I always "mispronounce" it as bolo-nyah though, which gets me weird looks.

    I hope they quiet down, Chyn!

    Sorry, 'muricans, Italian language and literature was my major at the university and the way Italian words are butchered in English never ceases to amaze me. :p I have a hard time understanding how "ravioli" can be interpreted as singular when it's the plural of "raviolo", how can "bruschetta" be singularia tantum when plural exists and it's "bruschette".

    Oddly enough, in Serbian, most people view spaghetti as female (špagete, as opposed to špageti) and bruschette as male (brusketi, as opposed to bruskete)...and yeah, that's our second worst sin in terms of Italy and Italian culture...

    ...the worst is putting ketchup on pizza, instead of tomati pelati. I don't see a well-made pizza as unhealthy, but the way we make it here, with the said ketchup as the main "topping" and semi-processed cheeses that, the calories, fats and sugars are double the average. Death from the oven and all. Not sure if Rey and Finn's cat would approve. :(

    Hello from Louisville, everyone! I'm at my trade show booth in my Ian Mosh dress with a pounding headache, but still having fun.

    As far as I'm concerned, "Bologna" rhymes with "Catalonia," though I can't totally be responsible for the pronunciations of my compatriots. The word you may be looking for is "baloney" (which is a sort of corrupted anglicization of "Bologna" by origin anyway).

    Good grief. The whole city of Lyon would have a heart attack if they knew you guys think their trademark sausage is from Bologna. Mind you, they eat inordinately large amounts of that sausage, so their hearts are probably way past the heart attack stage :p

    It's not rosette in this case, it's saucisse. Both are amazing though *drools* And now I'm hungry.
