I definitely belong on the dark side!

The person after me thinks that Anakin is better than Luke Skywalker.
Please correct my mistakes. I'd really appreciate it ❤

No, I think Anakin is the bad one.

The person after me has to buy some pickles for today’s lunch.

YES and I love pickles more than lunch itself! I go to pieces if there are no pickles in the fridge.

The person after me met a new member of their family for the first time this week-end.

Nope. My cousin was due to give birth last Tuesday and as far as I know they already rushed to the hospital twice but the little heir-to-the-throne isn't born yet.

The person after me will dress as the opposite sex on carnival.

No, because I already dress “ as a man” everyday, meaning trousers and a plain pullover :roll:

The person under me thinks that men clothes are boring.

(In American English at least, "Carnival" is thought of as a span of time, not a particular day, so it can't be used with "on".)

They are, but so are most men, so that's appropriate.

The person after me is shaking their head at that last remark.

"Bayou" is the English word. Or do you mean what they would call one in England? I would guess it would just be a "creek", but maybe posh people say "estuary"?

The person after me has eaten crawdads they peeled themselves.

Thanks for the word "crawdads", I didn't know it!!! :D
However, I'm far too lazy to peel seafood (crabs, shrimps...) so I don't eat them. I'm getting dangerously close to the vegetarian side :cry:

The person after me cannot stand self-centered people whose only hobby is talking about themselves.

Not at all, I love sleeping.
Besides, although it may look like wasted time as we're not actually productive, it's nothing of the sort - it restores the body and makes it more efficient for future tasks.

The person after me has been criticized hotly by someone they thought was their friend.

Not to my knowledge.

The person after me watched an entire 90-minute movie in a foreign language, even though they didn't understand a word.

It's a dialectal term associated with the American South. Most North Americans call them "crayfish" (even though they're very different than what are called "crayfish" in Europe); a minority say "crawfish".

I once watched an entire Jackie Chan film without subtitles, but it was one I've seen before and I do understand some Cantonese. It would be hard to find a film in a language I literally don't understand a single word of.

The person after me can't tell Cantonese from Mandarin in speech or writing.

I wish! I just watched a movie from Stephen Chow and I couldn't tell, although I'd go for Cantonese since it's a Hong Kong movie.

The person after me is trying to find a movie she saw long time ago, unluckily.
Thanks for any correction :)

Yes, "La boum" with Sophie Marceau, what a vintage movie, what a nostalgia! :lol:

The person after me would like to try once acupuncture.

("Unluckily" implies that it's unfortunate the person is trying to find it.)

france-eesti wrote:Yes, "La boum" with Sophie Marceau, what a vintage movie, what a nostalgia!

"Nostalgia" is a mass noun in English (like "greed" or "water"). You'd have to say something like "how nostalgic".

Sure, what could it hurt?

The person after me is terrified of needles and faints when you try to draw blood.

Not at all, I actually miss donating blood.

The person after me doesn't want to take any more medical appointments.

Not really, never played golf in my life. But I like to ride my bike on the golf green and seek abandoned balls.

The person after me knows what to do to (politely) interrupt someone who is talking to them incessantly.
