Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
Leslie, I am so excited about where your life is taking you. Such a scary and unknown world, but more massive than you could have ever dreamed! I know that through the challenges of this new venture, your family will grow stronger. And YES, your kids are going to have experiences in these times that they will cherish. Thinking of you as you transition to figuring out part time life across an ocean, but confident that if anyone can make this work, its YOU!
Did you move to Europe, Leslie? My sister lived in that part of Germany for a few years. It’s beautiful!
You are in Nuremberg for weeks? Surely this time we have to manage to meet up!! I’m there this weekend, but full of family crap and you’ll be full of jetlag, I imagine, but maybe sometime in the coming weeks? Munich is only just down the road, obv.
Wow. Wowee wow wow. You are so inspiring, smart and thoughtful. I’m so proud of you. If you ever need to vent, I’m über available (is that German, über? I only know one, well technically two, words n German but they’re not appropriate for a family blog). Love you so, xoxo -syd
Actually, in that part of Germany, you’d say “GrussGott.”
Ah, instead of GutenAben, right. GrüßGott is more common, but I did hear a lot of people saying gutenaben.
YES! I plan on coming to München to visit Betty and you!
No, I’m working for a company in Erlangen, though, outside of Nürnberg. I’ll be staying there and more than likely coming back to visit again. Hopefully frequently.
HAHA. über. Love you, lady. You always make my day. xo
And dad, you should come visit. Seriously.
Looks like you’re learning how German is really spoken there. Tecnically, it’s “Guten Abend.” But the people around there drop letters when it’s spoken and many grammer rules are just ignored. The “der, die, das,” etc. definite articles are often spoken as just “duh.” So instead of saying “Der Mann,” what you’ll swear they say is “Duh Mann.” They know the grammer rules, mind you, they just don’t always use them.
If you want REAL Hochdeutsch, go to Austria. They speak textbook German almost everywhere. After a couple of years in Bayreuth, when we went to Austria it was like hearing English. The German was so pure and precise, it was very easy to understand.
By the way. Try to go to Bayreuth while you’re there. It’s just up the Autobahn about an hour and a lovely place. Your in-utero home.
Oh, and another common one is dropping the “e” at the end of the first person singular verb conjugation. So instead of “Ich gehe nach hause,” they’ll say “Ich geh nach hause.” Other parts of Germany recognize the accent one gets when living around there. Kinda like when I say “y’all.”
