Nawww (at least not as far as I know), I just always think of birds with Nef, from her pet that used to be her icon.

Thanks for the birthday wishes everybody.

It's been an okay day. I celebrated with presents and a trip to see the Simpsons movie this Saturday, since it's a workday today, so to get the full effect out of a whole day dedicated to me I celebrated it a bit early.

One of the present that I got was a dutch course!
It's gonna be difficult to remember that jij means you in Dutch and not I, since jeg means I in Danish and is pronounced the same way.

I was actually thinking about asking you if you know of any good books in dutch for young people. I'm thinking books for 12-15 year olds should have short and simple enough sentences for me to get through with a dictionary when I've learned the basic grammar. Maybe crimis or such; science fiction and fantasy are not good for learning a new language.

I actually got a dutch book for my birthday from a friend who is married to a dutch guy. I bet you know it - Jip en Janneke in Artis.
