Taking the Captain as my role model once again:

I'm not fond of whiskey but there are plenty of other possibilities at hand....

Since the presentation on Friday is in English, I will sit down and improve my poor linguistic skills.“ so she said and opened the new tab on the bookmark  'Archive of our own'. Because English used in fanfictions has almost the same vocabulary as in any scientific topic. Especially when it comes to sigmatropic rearrangements. As if.

(But: If I get a cent each time I say 'homo' during my presentation, I'd be a rich girl by the end of the week. Too bad it's mostly just the highest occupied molecule orbital.)

Also, why do I keep saying Wodehouse instead of Woodward? P.G. Wodehouse would have never written such ridiculous rule

The problem is: As much as I love tutoring my students or talking without drawing a breath about my current obsession or just having a nice chat with my friends about any topic you name (even the ones I have nothing to say about)... I just lose all of my charm when you have me standing in front of a big audience, when noone cares about what you are saying. Well, except for the examiner of cause. Who happened to be the one who once gave me the worst mark of my life in an oral exam. Lucky me.

Let's hope my English will be so bad, he wont even understand me and will have to pretend the presentation was alright and he has no further questions.

Who am I kidding?..

Back to reading fanfiction learning.

P.G. Wodehouse would have never written such ridiculous rules...

Ha, bet he would have come up with something infinitely more ridiculous. I want Jeeves to come and organize my life.

Viel glück bei deiner präsentation. Ich denke, dein Englisch ist sehr gut ... viel besser als mein Deutsch. :)

Even if it means the end to your amazing yellow heels? ;)

I never thought of that! Jeeves would probably take away my Danier yellow motorcycle jacket too. In fact, Jeeves wouldn't let me have anything yellow at all.

Ich studierte Deutsch seit einem Jahr in der Uni, aber das war vor drei Jahren. Es ist meine Lieblingssprache, aber ich bin nicht sehr gut darin. Ich muss mehr üben.

Du kannst gerne mit mir üben, wenn du magst :)

Ich mag!

Es war nur ein Jahr, aber ich lernte viele Stunden in (während?) dieser Zeit. Ich wollte, nachdem Uni nach Berlin zu bewegen. Ich hoffe immer noch, für eine Weile in Deutschland zu leben. Im nächsten Sommer möchte ich einen Kurs am Goethe-Institut nehmen.

(Aggh, sorry, I think I've messed up the word order, and I don't know where to put the commas.)
