(the return of) 90s music monday

as you know, english is not my first language. so maybe that's why i can be extra picky at times about certain things. take that look from off your face? haha now come on..

oasis: don't look back in anger (from 1996)

The story goes that his mother used to make Noel stand next to the fireplace and have his photo taken. Because he always looked grumpy on photos, she would tell him to take that miserable look from his face.

There's nothing wrong with being picky, as long as it's done in a fun way, like you do. :p

I've often wondered what your first language was and why you blog in English. Not that I mind, just curious. :)

That sounds like "Wipe that tear away now from your eye" in Champagne Supernova.

well you could have checked the location on my profile page, but i guess that doesn't give you more than.. my location. :)

i am 3/4 dutch, 1/4 greek. my first language is dutch. however, if i would blog in dutch, only a handful of people would be able to understand what i was writing.

I did but, that just told me you were in The Netherlands. :) I guess I had assumed it was Dutch but, that doesn't mean I'm right.

That's an unusual combination. How many other languages do you speak? I guess that's true, it would limit your exposure. I wouldn't be able to read it. :(

well my mother's mum is from crete, but i hardly speak any greek myself.
other languages? french and german, more or less fluently, though both could be better..

Interesting. Wow, that's 4. I'm illiterate in 2.

Yes! Let's all blog in Dutch! :)

maybe we should invade a few countries first, like the united states for example. bring them democracy, teach them our language, there are millions of potential dutch bloggers out there.. LOL

ah, but then the question is....do we teach them the Flemish variety or the Dutch variety ? :p

"From off your face"... Old colloquial usage...
