HACK

I cannot be sick. :( I've been feeling like crud since yesterday...well, actually, I don't think I've felt 100% since I was sick 2 weeks ago. I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't go in and check whether or not I've got walking pneumonia again. That happened a couple of years ago after a cold that wouldn't quit for several weeks. I was flabbergasted when the doctor told me what I had. ugh

If I was a cat, I'd be hacking up this hairball. As it is, I seem to be stuck with it. *gack, hurk, ick*

Really interesting article about how hard it is to define what happens when one translates: The Silent Intermediary (link via Language Hat)

On my Wishlist! Mimi Smartypants' book is out in hardcover on amazon.co.uk!

WITH FEELING

Show me the way to go home!
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a drink about an hour ago and it went straight to my head
Wherever you may roam, over land or sea or foam
Whenever you hear me singing this song, show me the way to go home!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!

Show me the way to my habitual abode
I'm fatigued and I wanna retire
I had a beverage sixty minutes ago and it went straight to my cerebellum!
Wherever you may perambulate, over land or sea or atmospheric density
Whenever you hear this melodious ode, show me the way to my habitual abode!
