I love language. Words. Foreign languages. Witticisms. Quips. Literature. Grammar. Sociolinguistics. Linguistic anthropology. Cognitive linguistics. Etymology. Language should be handled with reverence and joy and dizzying passion and whimsy. I like to hang out with other linguistics nerds who understand my excitement when I exclaim, "OH MY GOD Romanian retained a case system!"
Seeing the Nook station at Barnes&Noble makes me really anxious. So I avert my eyes.
Once a month I get really hyper and bake for 7 hours. Wanna learn how to make tea-infused butter? Awkwardly, I don't actually like dessert food, so I'm left with a dozen mini peach and brie pies and...dismay.
