Au revoir, les enfants

Gacked from Geeky Mom's site:

France Modern (trois fleurs-de-lis)
You are 'French'. In the nineteenth century, it
was the international language of diplomacy.
It is a 'beautiful' language, meaning that it
is really just a low-fidelity copy of Latin.

You know the importance of communicating
'diplomatically', which for you means both
being polite and friendly when necessary and
using sophisticated, vicious sarcasm when
appropriate. Your life is guided by either
existentialism or nihilism, depending on the
weather. You have a certain appreciation for
the finer things in life, which is a diplomatic
way of saying that you are a disgusting
hedonist. Your problem is that French has been
obsolete for a long time.

What obsolete skill are you?

My life is defnitely not guided by nihilism--no, not even when I'm at work. Existentialism? Yes, but not in the dressed-in-black, angsty way. (Not since I was 17.) Rather, in the let's-cultivate-our-own-garden way, expressed nicely by Voltaire...

Ack, again with the French!

Oh, and I am so not a hedonist. Although with the amount of chocolate I've been consuming lately, some might argue with that.

Chocolate is not for hedonists. It's for survival.
