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.

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.

Holly, you're a RIOT! :biggrin: Congrats on your test! When do you finish school and take your registry exam? May you be known as The Ultrasonographer Extraordinaire on your very first job! :smile: :wink: (Don't forget to hit them up for relocation assistance! And from what I've seen, sign-on bonuses are fairly high in your field! Sweet!)
Wish I'd had those translations when we were over there... :wink: Kinda liked the spicy anythings! :biggrin: , but the licorice :wink: and the bikes! :eek: WILD!

Sure Holly, as requested, here are the translations :rolleyes: :biggrin:
"Excuse me, I have just eaten some Dutch licorice. What is the antidote?"
Hmm, lekkere dropjes zijn dat, mag ik er nog eentje?

"These highly spiced Dutch cookies are very tasty. Do you have a fire extinguisher handy?"
Bedankt voor het koekje, kun je mijn jonge jenever even aangeven?

"Someone just ran me down on one of those yellow bikes. Where is the nearest emergency room?"
Mijn fiets is net gestolen, waar is het dichtsbijzijnde politie kantoor? :wink: :tongue:

Hmmm what delicious candies, may I have another?

Thanks for the cookie, can I give my child (...however many? whenever?...)?

Mijn fiets is niet gestolen, waar is het dichtsbijzijnde politie kantoor?

My bicycle has not been stolen, where is the nearest police station?

:wink: :tongue:

If you are really teaching us dutch then maybe you would correct my
homework? Did you mean niet gestolen or net gestolen---maybe net is dialect?

my advice would be to use both:
make her a PF mentor and tape her in place
with duct tape as well, extra precautions
are warranted in this case


----"If I have seen less than other people, it's because some giant's
shoulders were always in the way."

or words to that effect
