French, very french. *yawn*
7 August 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

French, very french -- not to say a complete and utter bore. Plus, Schneider and Delon are overrated. Just being young and beautiful isn't acting. +++ Now you can stop reading, I just had to fill those extra lines with dummy text to get the minimum amount of words.

On the other hand, Latin nonsense automatically corrected by American spell check could cause some fun: Lorem gypsum dolor sit met, consecrate autopsies el-it, sued resumed temper incident ult la bore et dolor magma aliquot.
