LOL. Either I better stick w/American designers or learn to speak french. I bought a key chain too, just because I could pronounce it. Lol.

Matata, don''t feel bad at all; I often find out I''m mispronouncing things! When we were doing our last kitchen I wanted wenge cabinets. Wenge = wenj phonetically, right? Well, it''s wen-gay as the snotty kitchen designer was prompt to point out with a big eye rolling smirk. Screw him, we went with cherry--and a different designer!

hahahaha.... I am just as bad.... I think taking 2 yrs of French in HS helped a little. But not a lot.

When I was little, I used to think lingerie was pronounced linger-E ... hahaha... my mom tried not to laugh. good thing I learned how to say it when I actually had to start wearing bras.

Matata,

This is too funny. I posted a thread on how to pronounce the name of my new LV bag...Batignolles. I didn''t want to butcher it when people asked which style bag I had gotten.

Well, heck, even SHE pronounced it incorrectly, as it is actually pronounced "poh-SHETTE" with a hard "T!" Should sort of rhyme with "corvette" as far as the last syllable, with a Po, as in "poe" in front of that. Yeesh.

. When I want grown up stuff, I have to call up to Portland or Eugene to get it. But it''s not all bad, we now have a Home Depot and are slowly working our way up the retail ladder

Ahhh...you''re in the land of dry weather...lucky duck. I am in the land of perpetual puddles.

congrats on the Home Depot, now you too can ponder the aisles endlessly in search of someone, anyone, who can answer your questions.

LOL.
