It's fun with accents! To me, the coolest thing about other languages is all the fun marks and different letters they get to use. Of course, no extra marks could make housecleaning fun. Not even a tilde. This was, of course, my mother's response to complaints of boredom when I was a kid, which I'm sure is true for a lot of people. It's how we learn to internalize our anguish.

Lots of auctions ending today, and more going up this afternoon. Be sure to check for updates!

I LOVE pronouncing frappe with a French accent. And many of my friends have picked up Stewie Griffin's habit of emphasizing the H in words such as Cool WHip and Wil WHeaton. XD

Not even a cedilla?!

Actually, that wouldn't work anyway because çleaning would be pronounced 'sleaning'!
(at least it would in Catalan, which is the language I speak that uses it - might be different in other languages).

Anyway, I concur, regarding both the language coolness and the cleaning uncoolness!

lol, why is it every time you whine you are bored, someone suggests housecleaning, I'm with Minty, NOTHING can make housecleaning fun unless its polishing floors with your socks because its always fun to glide down the hallway on the hardwood floors.

I'm actually with Kimono on this one! This sounds like it could be a conversation from my house...

If you really like fun marks and letters, browse the Unicode code charts.

I've had a Unicode cheat sheet printed up and tacked by my desk for years. :D I don't bother here at LJ, but on my website, I'm really particular about en dashes and em dashes and real apostrophes. I've accidentally memorized quite a few ISO entity numbers because of that. o_O
