    First name initial, last name. Pretty common with email addresses.

    I assume Sisi is your first name and not a nickname?

    Cchiu,


    No it's not my name. To this day I wonder why I registered under that name, between you and me I don't really like it. But what's done is done.

    Sisi, I always thought it had to do with the version of "yes" in French, when someone makes a statement (such as, "It's not raining"- but it's raining, so you answer, "Si, il pleut") but you correct them. Am I making sense??? [​IMG]

    Gee I thought CChiu was a take off on "seat you" in a restaurant. Sisi I thought was a nickname like maemae in China (little sister)
    Shoot I saw chiliboy and thought hey I'm into mushroom hunting and cooking that's a good one beats marketgirl (uhoh guess I can't post that with children online...but sounded trully suggestive.

    Mezzaluna,

    You are right si can be used like yes, rarely would you repeat it twice.

    In French si also mean if.

    It can also mean everytime like in "Si je sors sans parapluie il pleut" Everytime I go out without a umbrealla it rains.

    There are many other examples of other meaning but I'll stop here.


    Chrose,


    I know I'll be forever sorry I ask but exactly what is a sisi??

    Sisi, thanks for the refresher! I'd forgotten more than I'd realized.

    "Sisi" in English- I think Chrose meant "sissy"- a scaredy cat (timid person)? That definitely doesn't describe the Sisi I've read here!! [​IMG]

    Mezzaluna,


    Thanks for the english lesson. I had check my dictionary but couldn't find it, now I know why.

    You won't believe me but in reality I am very shy and have been known to blush. Guess things are different when I'm behind my computer.
