is it difficult to speak English?

Yeah, it would be a crap real name, wouldn't it??
Don't think anyone would take me seriously....
(not sure if they do anyway...) :-)

I can imagine people who are really called 'candy' but I think it's a bit too sweet ;-)

Eh, you do know 'Sander' is my real name?
Candy   Thu Nov 03, 2005 9:08 pm GMT
Is it really?
I think Candy is a real name, but it's sickly....nice for a little girl, maybe. I chose it for a joke really! :) Some people I know called their daughter Poppy which is sweet, but can you imagine her ever being Prime Minister??
Sander   Thu Nov 03, 2005 9:11 pm GMT
Yes it is, but this seems to pose a lot of problems for some people...

They call me 'SanderS' after some American chicking killer or think it's deriver from 'sand' ...
Sander   Thu Nov 03, 2005 9:16 pm GMT
deriver = derived
Candy   Thu Nov 03, 2005 9:16 pm GMT
Is it short for Alexander, or an independent name? Is it popular in NL?
Sander   Thu Nov 03, 2005 9:17 pm GMT
It's independant, it's not so popular, but there are people who're called Sander.
Candy   Thu Nov 03, 2005 9:19 pm GMT
My real name has about 27 different spellings, and nobody ever ever gets it right.......:(
Sander   Thu Nov 03, 2005 9:20 pm GMT
Could you, you know... give me hint? :-)
Candy   Thu Nov 03, 2005 9:22 pm GMT
Possibly, via PM....but it'll have to wait till tomorrow....I'm off to bed in a few minutes as it's 10.20 and I have to be up before 6am!! :(
G'night all!!

Slaap lekker!

"(BTW, spent last weekend in the Netherlands...great time!) "

Was it not boring?
Candy   Fri Nov 04, 2005 10:13 am GMT
<<Was it not boring? >>

No. I had a great time, as stated. I *like* the Netherlands a lot. (Going again for the weekend in 2 weeks).

"Adam's mum in Dundee"

You're right - my mum IS Scottish (I'm half English, half Scottish), but she used to live in Castlemilk, not Dundee.

"Oooh, in the Netherlands that must be quite some distance! At hour!! (GASP!!)
(And I thought England was a small country!) :-) "

England is about 5 times larger than the Netherlands. Britain is about 10 times larger.

Us in Britain happily travel the equivalent length of the whole of Holland just to go and buy a newspaper from the shop.
