amazing.  simply amazing.

I havent had anything like that... although I passed 2 people while heading to class today, one of them said avatar in the middle of a sentence (amazing how your ears pick something like that up and nothing else)... if i wasnt thinking so much about having 5 min to get to a class a good 10 min away, the idea to say "kaltxì ma tsmukan" would have popped up a few seconds earlier... but by that time they were too far away, and i did not have time to turn around.

I was so mad at myself, the rest of the time I had between that point in class... I talked to myself in na'vi as if I was trying to convince the two people to go see it.

I am also beginning to dream a bit in navi...  i forget the context, but I remember someone saying "I see you" and i was like, "kehe, oel ngati kameie." ... which then i realized... hey, thats preety cool! (and wrong!) annd then i was awake.  :(

This is a little off topic but just out of curiosity, what curses? Ive been looking for some good ones since "pxasik!" and "terkup skxawng!" are getting a little old. Its difficult since we dont have any actual swear words...

  Some coworkers decided to write me a nice note on my whiteboard today. "The definition of insanity is: People that learn made up languages only used in movies".

 I "edited" it to this:

We all had a good laugh. They are actually good sports about stuff. As am I.    :)


EDIT: I had to translate the last line for them. That is what got the laugh...

I wish I worked with open minded people. I was starting to connect with my coworkers but there is an undeniable rift now that they know I speak Na'vi.

My co-workers more or less treat me now like I have a strange, little bit scary, and possibly contagious disease. ;D

My embarrassing moment of the day contribution ... I was at a Charbucks the other day where I go often enough that they actually recognize me (hey, this one actually makes good coffee, strangely enough). The barista girl was complaining about weird people who come in off the street and bother them, which no doubt happens at lot in the downtown of any big city. I said, I'm sorry for giving you another entry in the weird person story log, and she assured me that I was totally normal. I said, "what would you say if I said: kaltxì ma tsmuke?" <i'm grinning> She gave me a funny look that no doubt is usually reserved for the above mentioned weird people and said: "What's that?" I said: "It's Na'vi!" <wait for ohhhhh!> <sweatdrop> Her: "What's that?" Me: "Have you seen Avatar?" Her: "No, I haven't gotten to it yet..."

That was actually a pretty embarrassing experience 'cause I expect most people to have at least seen Avatar or heard of the Na'vi. She said in the end (in a joking way) that I'm still alright because at least I do a good job of acting normal most of the time ;D

Ahh geez... :P

I'm presuming after that, time was filled with the horrible presence of The Awkward Silence.

Heheh, for me, I think the most embarrassing time was when my mother caught me whilst I was writing my next worksheet/thing. I hadn't told her before, and It was pretty awkward. Especially when she brought up the point that I have an exam in Spanish in three months, but am dedicating more time to this :P

"No, I haven't gotten to it yet..."

I usually reply something along the lines "you should see it in theater in 3d at least, cause it's the best thing since they added sound to movies".

I think I said something almost exactly like that, actually. ;D I like to try to impress on people that they really ought to go see Avatar and they really ought to go see it in 3D.
