Auf Wiedersehen, Pet

by limebirdcaroline

Don’t get me wrong – I can’t speak German to save my life.  I can’t speak any other languages for that matter (bar English, of course).  However, I do understand that people who speak English as a second language, fluent or not, have a put a lot more effort into their linguistic education than I ever did.  I like to think that when a non-native English speaker holds a conversation with me, I am patient with them when they stumble over the vocabulary.  In the same way, I know that the kind, pitying looks that they give me in turn when I attempt to ask for a latte in their language actually hold slight respect for my efforts (FYI, “Eine Milchkaffee bitte” got me far in the six days I was in Munich recently – any German speakers reading, I apologise if that’s totally wrong but it worked for me).

DC to the rescue

by limebirdsophie

Hello Limebird friends, resident geek Sophie here. I thought I’d do a little post all about the wonderful world of comic books, to be specific, DC’s New 52. I do currently have an ear infection and I am medicated up to the eyeballs so I apologise if what’s written below makes no sense!

If you do not read comics you probably have no idea what I’m talking about, but do not fear I am here to teach you and hopefully get a few of you picking up some books and enjoying the massively unappreciated form of literature that is comics!
