Part of me is looking forward to Doctor Who but the rest of me is dreading it after that not so good Christmas episode.

I'm back! That exchange was the most exhausting thing I've ever done and I'm just happy to be home, I got back and watched all of the Bones I've missed :clap:

If a programme is in French then I want to hear the French language and glance down only if I'm not making sense of it. I like hearing even foreign languages I don't know. On the other hand I am fascinated to hear the voices in a dub. I've come across some Simpsons dubbed into French, and it's interesting to hear how/if the new voices work, and how the original is translated (sometimes disturbingly badly). And while looking for the latest ep in Bones S4 I found a S2 episode in French and lingered a moment just to see whether the timbre of the voices were similar to the originals. Booth was much gruffer than the original and TJ's voice definitely wasn't right. I'm fussy about TJ's voice! Brennan wasn't bad though.
:D I'm back, which means I'm back at work too :doh:
Wow, it's true that TJ has such a beautiful voice... The french dubbing isn't good at all, for sure... But I think that the french Brennan is pretty close to the original one :wink:
These 2 episodes were sooooo...!!!! Wow! I want more!!! :lol:
I love the original version, and I prefer watch without any subtitle, except for the scientific terms... :roll: :? lol

Hi cutenebula. I don't think I ever said welcome to you over on the other thread so I'm just going to say it here! Welcome! ;)

Hope everyone is doing well. Its been very quiet on here the last couple of days. Maybe because Steph is gone? ;)

Busy with school here, I think I'm going to not get through physics again so I'm going to have to take it next fall. Grrrrrrrrr. I hate this class! LOL

Other than that I am good!

Cause you guys have a lot of interests that I don't have experience with, and I have interest you guys don't have experience with.

So maybe I make you all feel kind of nerdy in your own way too XD

Embrace the geek within, that's what I say! :D Absolutely nothing wrong with it. I love that everyone here has such a wide variety of interests and talents. I think it makes each one of you very cool.

I don't know, I think being a nurse is a pretty good thing to do with your life! It certainly isn't easy, and I know I could NEVER EVER do it. I'd be sicker than the patients! ;) Having kids and raising them to be responsible people isn't easy either.

Hi, Sharon!! :dance:

Sorry for the delay in response. My aunt's computer is being testy today. It keeps locking up. I may have to shut down for a little while and come back.

How are you? :D

*waves* Glad you can now sit and breathe freely. Heeee.

I'm okay. Would be better if I could get a job! I've got ten more prospects to apply to today. *sigh* If people would just give me a chance...

I'm going to visit family in Green Bay for the weekend. Not much else going on with me right now.


Except that I stayed up till almost midnight last night, helping my aunts stuff many, many, many envelopes for their school alumni reunion. I have paper cuts. :mrgreen:

Yep good air now!!

I'm going to do house chores and catch up with reading for school this weekend. Your weekend sounds better Sherry.

I hope one of those 10 prospects sees what a great employee you will be!! :handgestures-fingerscrossed:

I know how it is to search for a job. I was unemployed too. Since nearly a year I have a job again, yeahh! I am really glad about that.

But yesterday and today were kind of horrible. I guess I am "to weak" for the "small verbal attacks" from my teamleader.

Sharon, glad you survived "the attack of the collogne fumes" :mrgreen:

Martina, I hope you don't let your teamleader pick on you...but I know what you mean, sometimes you just have to let things go. Doesn't mean you are weak though.

I hope so! I feel really stir-crazy, so I think it will be very good to get the heck out of this house for a few days. Also, I'll be seeing my nephew and niece (my sister's kids) so that should be tons of fun. They always make me laugh.

Man, I hope so. :? I'm running out of options. And it's wearing me down. I don't want that -- I want to be happy. (I know. Who doesn't? *sheepish grin*)

Martina, thanks for the inspiration! (And I hope your teamleader lightens up.)

Okay, all... I best be off for a little while. I've just finished on the treadmill, and this stupid computer is locking up on me again (but not on this site, oddly enough), so I better shut it down, go shower, and get to applying for those jobs. And do laundry. There's never enough time in the day! :D

Hope to talk with you all soon! *hugs*
