Wow, I had absolutely no idea you weren't a native speaker of English. Considering how well you write, I don't think you'll have any problem getting your certificate! If you ever want extra speaking/conversation practice, just let me know -- when you get your computer and microphone to behave, I'd be happy to Skype. :) Also, Shakespeare in Love is my favorite movie, and the dialogue is probably the best part; Tom Stoppard is a genius.

I'm pretty sure it's just for his French major (he's triple-majoring in French, International Studies and Women's & Gender Studies, so I can't keep track of all his projects), and he's still working on the translation. Basically he's arguing that the writing in My Immortal is so horrendous that it practically isn't English anymore, and trying to figure out how you approach translation in a case like that. He isn't going to be finished for a while, but I'll get back to you re: "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU MOTHERFUKERS!" :)

Yay Moz! You're totally right about him being a Deus Ex Machina provider; I hadn't even thought of that. I just love him because it's nice to have a comic relief character who's actually competent, and whose humor comes from their personality rather than from them constantly screwing things up.
