Party [Feb. 9th, 2003|02:13 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
[Tags|, ]

Had a bunch of people over last night... drinks, chips, burgers on the grill, background movies, darts... that sort of thing. Fun stuff. 'cept it made me realize I know lots of girls, and only a few guys.

I'd hack now, but it's beautiful out, so I'm off on a bike ride.

Bei schönem Wetter fahre ich mein Fahrrad durch den Wald. (that the correct use of the preposition "bei"?)

Yep.

Bei schönem Wetter fahre ich mit meinem Fahrrad durch den Wald.

Your sentence sounds like you'd "walk" your bike through the woods. Which you are probably not doing.

But otherwise, good sentence.

Pssst, you should get a pool table. If you do, I'll come live at your house.

Ich wünsche! Leider ist mein Haus zu klein dafür. Wenn ich ganz reich wäre, vielleicht.

Ich glaube, an dieser Stelle solltest du eher sagen "Das wäre schön!" oder so - you really don't say "Ich wünsche" in German for "I wish". I know you asked me once how to say it in German, aber mir fällt wirklich keine schöne Übersetzung dafür ein.

It freaks me out dass ich das verstehen kann even though you switch languages randomly.

It should make you proud though. Although so far I've tried really hard to at least keep one clause in one language. :D

Ja... "Das wäre schön" klingt mir wirklich besser. Danke. Ich werde mich das erinnern.

let me be your smartass

"klingt wirklich besser"

&

"ich werde mich daran erinnern" (remember, the da + preposition words?) oder "ich werde es mir merken"

When you're lucky enough to get to know girls who act like guys, you've hit the jackpot. :)

I'm Dana, btw. You don't know me yet, but I've liked what I've read of yours.
