Makes you realise what alcoholics and those addicted to illegal substances go through. When abroad I have been reduced to reading Agatha Christie in German with the aid of a dictionary. (I did do 6 weeks of a German course and I had read the book in English). I also borrowed my french penfriend's copy of a translation of Oliver Twist because I'd read all the English books I had brought with me twice and was really suffering from text deprivation. I can cope without OW when away from home but my fingers get twitchy when I'm back again.

Glad all is well.

I can't change your vote, but you should now be able to do so.
Click on REMOVE VOTE, and then you can vote again.

When your aunt has one clue left to complete her crossword, and the answer is 'abeam' you can't imagine why she didn't know it  ;D
When the clue is Fox Islands native and you quickly realize that the answer is Aleut ;D

This afternoon I accidentally referred to my volunteer shift at the library as my 'watch'

You find yourself saying Who rather than What ship.

Yes - I know that one too, Randi. Ships become people easily now. The number of ships named after people, especially in Whaling, helps :D :D :D
