Did someone say dark chocolate?
the darker, the better
you tried swiss chocolate Lindt with 85% of cocoa.
when i was on a competition in switzerland i bought so much chocolate that i needed to but a one more bag just for chocolate.
including those with lots of cocoa. i just tried, it is so bitterly.
I'm sorry, malakawa, if this is rude (I honestly don't mean it that way.) but I find your little English slips to be so adorable. I love reading your posts. I mean, you're fun and have good things to say, but your English is so cute.
Kudos, though, for the command you do have. It's much better than my grasp of Spanish ever was (even when I was studying it), and I can't imagine trying to work and write and live immersed in a foreign language.
Agreed, on both points. Actually, all three, because yeah, my spanish and portuguese were never as good as your English is.
i don't mean it's rude. feel free to correct me. i am still learning. sometimes i caught myself writing on german :-? (i speak 3 languages (+ my native language) and learning 2 more)
but i am trying to speak correctly. i even said to my students to correct me.
My stepmother is Brazilian, and is still trying to learn English. One of the biggest problems she has is tacking the letter "y" onto everything, as in Portuguese, so everything flows together nicely. The funniest little slip was when my dad and I took her to see King Kong in the movie theater, and she was trying to say the name of the movie. It kept coming out "Kingy-Kongy". Poor thing, she got so frustrated, but all my dad and I could do was giggle :lol:
I have to 2nd that it is adorable.
It IS so hard to learn another language as you are older. SO I have english down ... (thanks to my kids urbonics ... what a laugh) but I go to a russian tutor and have cds to learn russian. (as it seems a majority of my studios instructor are all russian speaking ...) plus I figured it was time to expand my mind. Maybe I can use it to get further ahead in life and meet new people. I also want to learn italian and romanian as that is my heritage. Long long road ahead of me. But I am getting it slowly.
Now to just have someone to actually speak with in russian to help me further along. oy veh!
that is what i am learning now with slavik. russian and romanian.
for me russian is not that hard to learn becuse it is a slavic group of languages, so when he speaks slowly i understand almost everything.
romanian is a little bit hard because it is roman group, but i had latin in my high school for 2 years so i have some basics.
was craving a bit of cake today. where's the good stuff when it matters?
Oh man, now I want cake!
Maybe I'll splurge at work and by a brownie for lunch . . . will see if the craving holds.
Dang now I want cake....
I make an amazing carrot cake, with vanilla buttercream-cream cheese frosting. It was my birthday cake this year. It will be my birthday cake next year, too
Yay carrot cake! Truly underrated.
Ate a snickers bar with my banana at lunch. It was a chocolate kind of day.
mmmm, I love god cake. My favorite is with ice cream and strawberries, or chocolate in combination with bananas.
I also like Rafaello and cocos square (cookies).
still no good cake in the vicinity... *sigh*
