.. when you spend hours in translation class arguing about what tense to use in a sentence that is a little strange and you think about how it would be so much easier in Gallifreyan.

Oh and a new one: when you attend a French - Turkish contrasted linguistics conference and, not knowing a word of Turkish, you look for an when they tell you about 1st person singular affixes, when in fact you should be looking for something like -im, -ım, -üm, -um.

I do the same thing!
Any time I see anything that has circles in it, on it, or is made of some kind of circle pattern, I get all excited because I think it's circular. Hahaha :)

... when making a pizza becomes a writing exercise. (I do remember reading something about Gallifreyan pizza somewhere on the Internet, so why not? And pizzas are so wonderfully circular.)
