When being bilingual (ahem) means pimping out your keyboard

I recently had to accept that my system of plugging in a second keyboard into my qwerty laptop to make it azerty was being a pain in the arse, so I ordered keyboard stickers. I have just stuck them on and am totally disorientated!! So, when I change the language on my computer I now have to think....white or yellow?! What do you think?

Emma,

HAHA funny... I thought about doing the same, but then I found it was just as easy to write in English on a French keyboard. So I bought French keyboards for my home (and of course that is what they gave me at work). Then I just stuck to only using the French keyboard in French mode, and after a week or so I could type just as fast (in English) on an AZERTY as I could on a QWERTY. What happens though, is now it is impossible to type on a QWERTY again and every time I go home to visit and use my parent's I find myself two finger typing again.

Oh, and I got your message on my blog... I wanted to write a response but it may be too long to get in to here and I wanted to make sure you see it, so you can find my email on my profile... pop me off one and I can answer your question.

Enjoy your weekend!
