Neither did I! I know that many of my friends think I'm bizarre, but not only because I create languages. It's my general behaviour that make them judge me "bizarre". But I don't think I'm bizarre. On the contrary, I feel too much "normal" (that's to say without more originality than anybody else). Bizarre, isn't it?! Christophe Grandsire |Sela Jemufan Atlinan C.G. homepage:
