Writer's Block: Parlez-vous francais?

What other foreign languages do you know? Which one(s) do you want to learn?


Being Canadian, I understand quite a bit of French (not as much as I think, though). I can understand much more written French than spoken because of our bilingual packaging law. I do have French-speaking customers who come into work and, while I understand what they're asking me, I reply in English.
Dmitri knows a LOT of French, but he speaks with a France accent (instead of our hillbilly, phlegm-filled Quebecois one) and I lol at him for being stuck-up :x

I do know about five phrases in Japanese, none of them particularly useful. ("please take off your clothes", "lie down over there", "good evening/morning/afternoon", "happy birthday", "where are the toilets?", "Canadian")

I know barely any Russian, but I know more than I think I do. I knew when Dmitri's mom asks for salt, or offers me corn. I can say "Russian" in Russian, which is useful at work when a customer CAN'T FUCKING SPEAK ENGLISH AND COMES TO THE STORE COMPLETELY FUCKING ALONE. I know all the goddamn different words for cat and kitty (except I can't remember how to call Clark a kitty, but Cleo's easy). I know how to say "bug" because it's practically onomatopoeia. I really don't know much Russian at all...but it's not like I live in goddamn Russia!
