Wuhh yow! mai mien bao.

I'm cleaning my workspace, since the kids have trashed it (no big surprise there) but I'm having fun, because sarah_create, who's now in Guangzhou, sent me this link to learn audio Chinese, for free:

http://chinesepod.com/

I've always wanted to learn Chinese, mainly for the ideograms, which I think are a really cool way of communicating ideas.
This program is fun!  And I can do it while I'm working on dull tasks--better still. I think this is the first time I've cleaned a room and not spent half the time whining about the mess.
Sarah says there's Spanish available through this program, too, and possibly some other languages...
and she says hello, and she misses lj, which is behind the great firewall of China.

If you like languages and have no time to grab a cup of coffee, much less take a course, be sure to check out this site!
