Why is it, that you get the weirdest idea while you're in the shower? I was standing there shampooing my hair, thinking, what's my favourite word? But since German is my native language and I'm an ESL speaker I thought, well, what's my favourite word in English and German, because both languages have fantastic words. And well, in my case English is an easy one: Sob.
I LOVE the word sob. It's short, to the point and has an almost onomatopoeic quality. Maybe it has an onomatopoeic background, or maybe the onomatopoeism(?) is just me.
I love sounds that have words, or words that describe sounds because they most often don't even need translation, just saying them conveys meaning, even to someone who doesn't speak you language. (aka onomatopeic words :D)

And then, still making foam, I thought about my favourite german word... and couldn't think of one. Which is kinda sad, because I like German, i love the fact that you can just add nouns to create a new noun and people still now what you mean (best case the probably world-famous: schadenfreude). And I like the word schadenfreude, probably, because it is so uniquely german, but I wouldn't call it my favourite German word (i like Weltschmerz just a little better :D, Schadenfreude is almost overused).

But anyway: what is your favourite word? In whatever language and for whatever reason?

And now for the
I'm back in love with SPN YAYE. I don't know why I fell out of love, maybe it was the season, maybe it was the fact that I still don't slash Sam and Dean (well I see the gayness... i just can't do wincest *sigh*), maybe it was fandom and I was getting sick of it, but that doesn't seem like it either, i still love RPS ALOT :D. But I did not feel the need to watch the at all, even though I got my sister infected with Supernatural and that would have been a good opportunity to get caught up, but I didn't want to.
Until now, heeee omg I don't know how I lived without them for so long, I love this show (and fandom) so freakin' much, stupid fangirls, wanks and all that other shit doesn't matter. Oh boys, I'm so glad to have you baaaack :D!
