Verbum sersum meis amiculis latinis (word up to my Latin homies)

My Latin is really rusty, or I would have made the Latin for "my Latin homies" translate literally "to my homies who understand Latin." Can't remember how to do that, and I'm too lazy to look it up. Maybe in a couple of days.

Anyway, I was pleased to discover that I could understand about 50% of what Pope Benedict XVI said in his blessing (which was given in Italian), thanks to my Latin education and my piddling amount of Spanish. That same piddling amount of Spanish gets me about 1 out of 10 words on Telemundo. Go me!
