What would the Na'vi be for "the guy that wears the tail" (or something close)? I'm too tired and lazy to translate right now.

I spent some time with my Na'vi notebook trying to get some quality learning time in while things were slow at work today. One of my colleagues offered me a chocolate chip cookie and I answered "kehe irayo" without even thinking (yeah, scary). I got an "excuse me?", so I changed it to, "I'm not really hungry" and just sort of wandered off.

I am trying to reach my "na'vi" weight, so no cookies for me.  15 pounds to go.



Yeah, I'm not at the point where I automatically answer in Na'vi. It's cause I haven't practiced in a while.

Bad Txontaw! You need to practice.

OT: My friends are making their own English code-language, basically just substituting out words, not a real language. So now nobody's going to be able to understand anybody in my circle of friends. :P

My alarm clock on my phone is a Na'vi ring tone. I have it set to 10 AM and when I went to work at 9AM, I forgot to turn it off...

Why would it bother you that people know you're learning Na'vi?

It doesn't bother me, but i think in the context of high school age teens, the whole idea of being branded as a "nerd" is probably the reason why.

Being in high school myself, that happens to be the general consensus. It's a shame really. No-one apart from my little bro knows I speak it (except for you guys ofc :P ) But i'd rather be proficient before I told anyone, so that people would be A) slightly more impressed and less "that's nerdy" and B) so that i could properly teach people if they wanted to find out. :D

However, it doesn't bug me at all :D

Being the big mouth I am I probably would have announced it to the entire school and would be seriously regretting it right now.

Everyone at the law school pretty much knows i am learning Na'vi now. One of my professors actually called me out on when he walked into the room and saw the learnnavi.org logo on my computer screen. He said "why don't you learn something useful like spanish" so i replied "posiblimente hablo espanol ahora, Skxawng"

So all 70 people in the room now know that speak spanish and Na'vi

Smart return.
That'd be one of those I'd come up with as soon as the moment is gone...

Cursed at the father of my ex on Na'vi yesterday. To good he didn't recognize a) the language b) the words and c) my terrible grammar!

Oh I absolutely would. In my opinion, when i pay 30k a year to sit in your class, you work for me, therefore don't say rude things to me that wouldn't say to a boss or a colleague. So yeah, I would pwn him all day long if he keeps it up ;D

I think here I can safely say LAWYERED.

Still, it is YOUR 30k after all, no-one else has rights to tell you what to do, especially not if they are getting money from you.

Good on you, the comeback was something quite special :P

When I walked in late to my class earlier today, fell over, started cursing in na'vi while everyone was watching me, then procceded by telling them they were all morons in na'vi without even thinking. I sat down and realised... oh my god what did i just do xD
