    BTW the cute-looking Monique is teaching us dutch, she says
    Afwezigheid is tot liefde, wat wind is tot vuur;
    Het dooft het kleine uit, het wakkert het grote aan.

    vuur = fire
    wind = wind
    liefde = love
    dooft uit = blow out
    wezigheid = being
    af = away
    afwezigheid = away-being = absence

    you holly have a knack for language, you should learn
    some non-english language, maybe dutch is the right one?

    Absence is to love, What wind is to fire
    It extinguishes the small, It enkindles the great

    Well, I like the little faces and things. I like the little green one that smiles and the one with the big eyes.

    I am sure Netherlandish is a fine language. However, I must perfect my Spanish so that I may best serve the population where I am moving when finished with the sonography program. Anyway, with my one word of Dutch, Klompen, I am sure I will do just fine.

    Physics is done by May 25th. I have a test in a few minutes; I am being bad and playing instead of looking over notes. I have to touch up my eye makeup and hone my plan to drive my prof crazy with my "kill him with kindness" campaign. Bwa ha ha ha ha.

    __________
    Absence is to love, what starter fluid is to fire;
    It enflames you to seek someone nearby, immediately,
    Whilst loved ones are conveniently absent,
    And consumes you with guilt later. But not too much guilt.

    Congrats Holly!!!! :biggrin:

    Hmm, if "Klompen" is not sufficient, perhaps Monique will provide the Dutch translation for these must-have phrases when visiting the Netherlands:

    "Excuse me, I have just eaten some Dutch licorice. What is the antidote?"

    "These highly spiced Dutch cookies are very tasty. Do you have a fire extinguisher handy?"

    "Someone just ran me down on one of those yellow bikes. Where is the nearest emergency room?"

    Congrats on finishing physics (that's a good thing?)!

    But we're still not letting you leave, holly.

    Hey Monsieur Le Monstre!

    I finish physics (or it finishes me off) by May 25th! Hooray! Two more tests and I'm done with the evil subject...until the national physics exam for sonographers, anyway...that's a long way away yet, though...

    Yes, soon I will be mercifully gone from these fine boards and you will have a new crop of chowderheads to help out in Fall!

    Maybe you didn't hear me the first time. Or maybe you're not quite understanding.

    You can't leave.
