    I think I'll try to keep everything 2 syllables and under.

    What causes this?
    I have this every now and then. Those days are usually my "sensotard" days, too. If I get one of those days, I shouldn't drive a car or be around people But my abstract thinking is often boosted. I don't know what it is, but I hope this thread will give some answers.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    yep, I've had people talk to me in english, which is the only language I know, and it sounded foreign to me, and they were locals so I can understand the accent.

    We're not talking spelling bee terms here.

    try having more than one native tongue and constantly thinking in 10+ languages some time...

    edit - incidentally, when I've been in France for a while and then hear British English for the first time in ages, it always sounds to me like people impersonating the barking of a dog until I tune back into it again...

    I could see myself thinking in the wrong language or combining the languages and what I hear is all gobbly gook.

    The weird thing is, I start importing the spelling and grammatical structure of my second language. That's one of the symptoms that it will be that kind of day.

    Now that I think about it, this was one rare weekend when I had no alcohol at all.
    Booze: good for your brain.

    Yeah, I do that too. I've said stuff like 'soup to onions' instead of 'onion soup' sometimes (soupe aux oignons), or I use reflexive verbs all the time where you don't usually use them in English, like saying "I don't know why I'm annoying myself" instead of "getting annoyed" (French je ne sais pas pourquoi je me dérange) or "as soon as I got myself up this morning" (dèsque je me suis levé). But the most common one that the kids laugh at me for is using 'to be' for some verbs in the past tense like "I'm fallen" instead of "I've fallen" (je suis tombé).
