I Learned Something New Today

I participated (sorta) in the *new* Coffee Talk on Google Chat today with my sisters on YCW. There were 17 of us on the East Coast. And though they were teasing me about my recent blog posts -- especially Alex -- I learned something really cool.

See, there are two YCWs (that I know of) that are not English speaking -- and they blog. I've been sorta curious about what it's like to be in ministry in Sweden. I mean, I'm Swedish. My father wants to retire there. It would be so cool to be able to read their blogs, but I can only say "thank you" and I'm not even sure I know how to spell it, so reading their blogs has been out of the question.

But, then, I found out about Google Translator, which seems pretty easy. So, go read in multiple languages and live into the season of Pentecost.

And for those of you that are eager to hear about my dating life, I haven't really got much to say. We'll see what the evening holds. He's been talking about inviting me over for dinner (did I mention he cooks?) and not staying up all night for once. Sleep would be nice, I admit.

*smiles* well, we'll teach ya! What do you want to learn?

Some eh...random words (and approx pronunciation):

boy friend - pojkvän [poik-vehn]
make out - hångla [hawng-lah]
kiss - kyss [chyss]
just friends - bara vänner [bahrah vennehr]

It was fun talking to you! And good luck tonight! Get lots of, heehee, sleep.

i don't like the last phrase you just taught me. i don't want to just be friends. though i'm not sure i want to be married either. apparently, married people don't make out.

Oh, no, that one just slipped in there out of habit...

How about this one then:

Stop talking and kiss me, silly - Sluta prata och kyss mig, dummer [sleutah praa-tah awck chyss mei, dum(b)ehr]

(and we do make out, just not as much as before, ok?)
