For you Anglophones out there

Sorry. There usually really is the occasional posting in English on here but lately I just haven't felt like it. Mind you, now that my friend C. lives in Amsterdam and is, of course, learning Dutch (that's right, isn't it, C.?), he at least will be able to make some sense of all this. As for all youse others: patience, grashopper. It's weird how I sometimes just don't get anything written in English; and then again there's months where the mother tongue doesn't want to translate to the screen at all. Bilingualism rules O.K.
