Well, common sense would lend towards that they work long hours during the work week.  As to being done with it or not, I don't know...I'm not the one who keeps bringing it into the conversation at random times, are you done with asking about another woman's husbands working hours all the time?

Oh and is that a no, I'm not going to get an apolgy for the accusations earlier?

1.  This.  :D  I did start re-reading Persuasion this week.   That's my favorite Austin (it beats out P&P by quite a bit, and I really really like P&P).  I've been listening to Elizabeth I on Book Radio (Sirius/XM radio). 

2. I generally read a bit every day, depending on what's going on.  There was a while during the busiest rush after the election when I didn't read but maybe 15 minutes a day at lunch.

3. No.  It takes, imo, daily immersion to reach that level of expertise.  I do speak German and Czech well enough to get fed, drunk, and thrown out.  I could make my way around towns in both countries with my language skills, but for an actual conversation that involved more than mowing the lawn, finding the train station or calling in an artillery strike, I'd need a translation dictionary and locals who spoke English :)

4. Not so much, no.

Hubby still working RG? I cant imagine how hard it can be to watch two young kids and still be online all day.

Maybe you can call her dh at work and tattle tale over all the time she spends online.  I'm pretty sure he doesn't work for AT&T, tho.

1. What are you currently reading? Mostly material having to do with local and social history in Roskilde in the 16th and 17 th centuries.

2. How often do you find time to read? I read daily, since reading is part of my work, and because if nothing else is going on, I still have to check a few things, read some news etc.

3. Are you bi/tri-lingual? I speak 2 languages fluently, can bumble along in a few others and can read yet a few others. I have studied 7 languages formally, to some degree or another.

4. Have you ever been arrested? No.

No, actually most people would think that a general statement is just that a general statement and not meant to be taken literally.   Working long all the time does not mean working long hours each and every day, just that over time their work hours may be more than average.

But the way you keep harping on it makes it seem like you think there is something wrong with working hours.   Is there something wrong with working long hours in general  or is there only something wrong with certain people working long hours?

When I think of bilingual I think of someone who can use the langugage fluently and in conversation.  Both of my brothers' wives are billingual, one in spanish and the other in Italian, My dad and SIL can go back and forth in Italian.
