3: To eat so much German food (given that we are what we eat) that you become a German.

for your example, "she found germinating." Maybe it should be she started germinating. yike, I wish I could talk to you.

"After a few weeks of regular injections of sauerkraut and bratwurst, Joan began to germinate."

(BTW, I've gotten pretty adept at decoding your creative spelling, but I struggled a bit on this one: "manirisms." I'm pretty sure it means "mannerisms" or it's the Croatian word for body odor.
