Every time I see that Windows 7 commercial with the French girl, Charlene, it makes me want to learn French. Seriously, I've seen that commercial a hundred times and every time it's on I say to Erik, "I want to learn French."
I want that cute lilt at the end of the words. I love how it flows. There's no harsh sounds in French. No hard 'g's. Everything sounds awesome in French.
I even think French cooking is better, mostly because of the way it's all said! :) Think about it: Ratatoille; Pate a choux; Mirepoix; etc. If it's French you can bet it sounds great.
And even in the movies, I love the French accents. I loved "An American in Paris", "Gigi", "Funny Face", and "Charade". Even Kevin Kline in "French Kiss" with his fake French accent I didn't hate! Seriously, love it.
And someday I'm going to Paris. I'm going to see the Eiffel Tower and I'm going to stroll down the Champs-Elysees. Bonjour Paris!
