w00t! go Latin!

I just finished watching the final day of the JEOPARDY! Tournament of Champions! And Brad Rutter of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, beat Ken Jennings! w00t! I watched all three days of the finals, and loved it. Today, there was a Latin category. My [nonblog] dad and I answered all the questions. ... though JEOPARDY! had a questionable one with pando...

I took three years of Latin in high school -- the maximum amount available. I love that language. Last year, I was in Latin III and Deutsch I. Now I'm just in Deutsch II. I love languages in general, come to think of it. Couldn't bring myself to do Spanish, though.

And speaking of Deutsch, one of my friends and former coworkers just stopped by. [He has graduated from college, and is getting married this summer.] I used to bring homemade chocolate chip cookies to work all the time during break, and he loved them. Thus, when I baked this weekend, I dropped a bag off for him. He got home just the other night, and found them there. He stopped by to thank me and give me an envelope, in which I found a thank-you letter --- written auf Deutsch! My favourite lines: "Ich hab mich vollgestopft. Ich hab den ganzen Inhalt des Beutels in einen Abend gegessen, so gut waren sie."

In fact, maybe I should go find some...

Glad he liked the cookies. Eating the whole bag in a single evening, though?

Thank goodness for Google's language tools. ;-)

Not a big fan of spanish myself. I prefer french, although latin sounds interesting too.
