I'm Pinopade Ringelli. (Get it?) I like a lot of old films (and old books, and old comics, and old TV shows, and old whatever). They're interesting......but I'm not. So I won't tell you all about my height and weight and my favorite colors and what I'm wearing and what I had for breakfast. I'll just say glad to be here.

Pinopade Ringelli is a pun? OK, I'll be wondering about that for the next few days, possibly the theme of your first quiz or brain teaser...
Welcome, you certainly started with a good brain twister if that is what it is

Er, has anyone else got it yet or is it just me... But it certainly fills those little times my mind goes a blank, like filling in a single crossword clue. And I do lots of them but it has still got me

My mind is also blank, the cat is looking at me as if I am mad as I keep saying it aloud, I think my Italian accent must be a bit off.

I got it when I read her first post - give the final "e" in the first name an "uh" sound, and pronounce the "g" as a "j."

It's like Round Britain quiz, a very appropriate introduction here actually. In jelly seems right (didn't expect the j sound). Now, only a few more words to decipher.
Well done Cinnamon, it proves it's possible. We'll keep working on it

"Peanut Butter and Jelly"? (The title of a kid's song?)

Ah, thank you - I didn't know there was a song by that title. I did try to make Peanut Butter and Jelly fit but had problems with the accent. Bangs head against wall.

No, No, No! Don't bang head against anything Sue! We'll be lost without it.
I don't know if that's the correct answer to the riddle. It was the only thing that rang a bell for me, it doesn't have to be right

Right. "Peanut butter and jelly." Actually I meant it as a reference merely to the phrase, not to the song in particular.

I once called myself "Juachoerin." That one is probably easier.

Right! Juachoerin, if pronounced like a Spanish word, sounds like "What'cha wearin'?"

I love code-switching, as linguists call it--i.e. mixing of languages. Here's an English-Spanish-German-French-Milcax greeting:

Like way bon major jour, amigo! How totally allez usted, man? Like, um, cuantos years hast thou, mein herr? Como se art thou so totally, um, ycleptez-vous an' stuff, dude?

Ok, now I am lost. A good knowledge of English and an average knowledge of French and I still can't figure out what you are saying
