Now majoring in math, linguistics, and Asian studies, with a concentration in Japanese, at University of Tennessee, with minors in English, German, history, and computer science.

I read a lot, and all over the place, content-wise. I also have a bad tendency to use German grammar in my English writing...which actually works pretty well for me.

It's not my fault I was only formally exposed to grammar when I started learning German.

Calculus is totally sexy, and I would probably marry Gottfried Leibnitz if he were still alive. And just to cement my awesome dorkiness to the world: I decided I wanted to study linguistics after I read The Lord of the Rings and found out Tolkien was a philologist. That was the only reason I ever went on a language kick. Before that I was an art/history nerd, with emphasis on the art. Who knows why?

Fate is inexorable.

comment Term for people who don't joke at all
I am pretty puritanical, and I shall have you know that I love slapstick and puns. Seriously. I drive people crazy with some of the weird/dumb stuff I come up with. Also: animal noises are always funny. So, I have to say I think your intuition is not too reliable in this case. :)

comment What emotions do :3 and :S convey?
:S in my experience is supposed to be like Charlie Brown's face when the mouth is just a squiggly line. It can mean confusion, embarrassment, or being at a loss for words, or some combination of them.

comment How and why have some words changed to a complete opposite?
I find this amusing because "nice" is another adjective whose meaning has changed dramatically...
