From thefridayfive - Foreign Stuff

1. If you could suddenly speak one language fluently (that you don't currently speak) what would it be?
Spanish. Because it's all around me and I have no clue what anybody is saying!

2. If you were to suggest a foreign film, that you really enjoyed, what one would you suggest?
My Life As A Dog from Sweden. I first saw this shortly after it came out, in the mid-80s, and I've seen it several times since, appreciating it more and more each time. It's one of the only movies I know of that deals honestly with the difficulties and frustrations of childhood. And a bit of trivia: the director, Lasse Halstrom, is the same guy who did all ABBA's videos. You'd never, ever know.

3. If you had to call another country home (other than the one you currently live in) what one would you choose?
England or Germany.

4. If you went out to buy an import music CD, what one would you buy?
I do in fact buy a lot of imports, and I don't mean just U.K. I guess just because I have a craving, I'll say Turkish pop.

5. If you were to chose an ethnic dinner, what would it be?
Indian. Sadly there seem to be damn few Indian restaurants in this city; they're mainly out in the suburbs, like Gwinnett.

Not sure if I have her right email address, so posting here for marchenland to see:

Thank you so much for the barrettes! You made these, right? I really like them -- the color, the design, the size, everything :) They went straight onto my hair. I really need big ones like this now, I've got thick hair and little barrettes won't cut it any more. I'll be wearing them all the time, I know it :)
