A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

I Am Reborn!

Capers and jigs up and down in glee at the triumph of years.


Now, absolutely any time she looks at me in that narrow way and says "Are you sure?" I will simply whisper, just at the outside edge of hearing:

And she will gently whisper "az fisked you" and laugh. Because you didn't read all the way to the bottom of that page, did you?

Of course I read it. No matter, Mme admitted I've been right all along. After five years the nightmare has ended!

Ah, but can you pronounce the name of the news agency, Reuters?

So, even though you both know you're actually wrong, you've agreed that you won because she was momentarily deceived by yet another website of self-confessed dubious factoids and said you were right, before realizing her mistake.

Yes, it's easy to tell you ARE married to each other.

It's "zoice", atchly... check out the latest links in Mme Metro's comments.

Do you two agree on Van Gogh?

I once knew a guy who pronounced Neitzsche "Neech", which is even worse than "Soyce".

Who says I'm wrong?
Mme doesn't. In fact she has finally admitted I was right.

Good enough for me.

"Roy-ters", no?

@G. Eagle:
This shows the power of the internet. Had it not been for this wonderful tool, who knows how many years of being "corrected" I might have had to withstand?


I think I shall stand on my record, thank you.

Since I learned to pronounce "Fan Koch" from a rather pretty Dutch curator at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, I am confident I cannot be gainsaid.

SOYCE! Dammit.

.... Ah, M Metro

Not all of us have the problem of knowing how to be humble, when you're perfect in every way

Tot siens (or is that seins)

I am abundantly gifted with inappropriate humility. I am in fact far greater than I think I am.

At least I think so ...

SOYCE! Dammit.
