Hee hee. I hate the sound of French, to my ears, it sounds ugly and indistinct, everything seems to run together like watercolors left out in the rain. But, the grammar and history of the language is fascinating. :-) I just wish it sounded nicer, without all those ugly nasal vowels and front rounded vowels and with more stops to give some texture to the sound. :-) -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'.
