    Somebody suggested I come by here. =)

    Okay, fine. I suppose I should give credit...but I forgot where the credit's due, so whoever suggested at the WBC bbs that I come by here, stand up and bow wow--er, bow. :p

    By the way, I'm in a weird mood right now so ignore me if I cough up a hairball or something like that. =X

    No...

    I can't tell whether he's being sarcastic or not. But just to be on the safe side, Bonjour is French for hello.

    BTW, bonjour all.

    My friend invented the <sarcasm> tags, which basically goes around any statement you intended to be sarcastic.
    For example <sarcasm>I think Dark Angel is an extremely ground-breaking, original and creative drama and James Cameron deserves a medal for it</sarcasm>

    Hey, I'm not a computer OR politically correct. :p

    I don't know what's worse - PC or my alter ego's initials - LP.

    French lesson

    No, "bonjour" is "good day", "bonsoir" is "good night", but also works as "good bye".

    Bonne nuit is good night. Bon soir is good luck. Bons pantalons is good pants, I think.

    Bon-bons...

    ...are small chocolate-covered candies; they seem to be a staple of Peggy Bundy's (Married...With Children) diet. I guess they literally translate as "good-good", huh?

    A "bon mot", an amusing pun or humorous remark, translates to something like "good talk", doesn't it? :confused:

    In Spanish, adios, or "goodbye", literally means "[go] to God". One might also say "Hasta la vista"--literally "until a later call/visit". "Buenas dias" is a common greeting, literally, "a good morning". "Buenas noches", or "good night", is often said in aprting. Oddly, I seldom hear folks say "buenas tardes", or "a good afternoon", exept in libros del espanol.
    In many Cheech and Chong movies this common colloquialism is heard: "Hola, vato!" ("Hey, dude!") It seems to be chiefly used in parts of Mexico and considered low-class.
