Y.a.l.i. (Yet another lame introduction)  Reply with quote  

Hi everyone...
I recently stumbled about the german version of "A dirty job" in a book store and i really loved reading it... usually I prefer my books in english, but the store i was in only had the german version...
Hm, what could I tell you about myself... I'm a 24-year-old student of computer science and I'm from germany...
If you have any more questions, fire away I will try to answer them, if I remember to drop by from time to time Wink

Welcome, Silentguy! I'm Joe, and as you can tell by my avatar, I do the board strip-searches (can't have anyone smuggling Ann Coulter here, so I gotta be thorough). How gentle I am depends on if you brought pie (or a nice strudel). Though you ARE German, you may WANT it rough... Laughing

Terry Pratchett you may carry in proudly. No smuggling necessary.

My knowledge of German is:

"I know nothink!"

"Hogannnnn!"

Yes, it has been a long time so I have no delusions of eptitude. I also have a sister. My ability to not write German is not related to her existence.

I'm officially welcoming you. How warmly depends on the pie I know you brought (you did bring pie, right?)


I know less German, I think, than Joe, though I did party with a German once in Denver. Fun guy. Lousy pool player.

Not that it matters.


So, tell us more about the pie.

Welcome, Silent guy!
Seeing as how Kar98 has fudged the curve for you.
Pie, is gonna be mandatory.
Strudel, will get you extra points.

Hehe, this is funny... You asking for pie... wanna know what I'm wearing right now?

That's right, that's a really big pi... does pi count as pie? =)

Anyway, I hope you don't wanna have anything selfmade, cause i don't wanna poison you Wink I could offer going to the supermarket around the corner and buy you a nice cheesecake or quarkstrudel...
Oh, or you could drop by at my parents place in two days cause then you might get some birthday cake my dad made for my mom Smile I know, cake's not pie, but there are very few things here in germany that would qualify as pie...

Lol, I've just been reading about pie in wikipedia and i found something i'm gonna try ordering in a restaurent next time... custard pie... there is no real german equivalent to the word custard and the german word for pie implies that you are talking about something filled with chicken, etc, not the sweet one Smile

Very Happy Welcome!

The only German I know is katzenjammer & I'd rather avoid reasons for using it...

Have some cocoa- about that pie...

Think pudding in a crust, custard's close enough-
then again, anything chocolate will do nicely!

Hey! Welcome aboard! What part of Germany are you from? I was there in 2000, & drove from near Nuremberg to Wacken (North of Hamburg) & back for a music fest. Mr. Green Great country, great people, great roads!

Nevermore...

We didn't invade and opress India just for you lot to expect us to learn Hindi and Urdu. Geez.

But in the spirit of international relations...

My hindi is worse than my urdu, so don't ask.
