When my mom told me I needed to go buy something, I ordered my cat lounging nearby to do it instead. Of course she totally ignored me. I then said "Why doesn't Moki [my cat's name] hannoushinai?" One second later I realized that doesn't make ANY sense. XD; Sometimes switching languages mid-sentence just fails miserably. I do it often.

Haha, actually that DID make sense to me when I first read it. It may be ungrammatical (is "ungrammatical" even the right word to use to describe a sentence made up of two completely different languages?), but it definitely gets the intended meaning across. I think generally people who know at least two languages would be so used to randomly combining both languages that they would be used to weird mish-mash sentences. *grin*

Yeah, these things usually aren't thought out and come out very odd. :P
