In case you didn’t notice, we recently included a translation button bar at the top of each post! It’s kind of fun in a rosetta stone/engrish/chinglish sort of way. Clicking on the french translation and reading how the google algorithm decides to translate certain phrases, and which ones it just gives up on and simply uses what we typed is… well.. kind of interesting?
Chinese would be fun too – except reading chinese is a lot harder than reading french or spanish.
The underground project I’ve been working on should be complete this week (hopefully) and that means that both of us will soon have iPhones! Leah will be getting the 8gig and I’ll get the 16gig. My contract with Sprint finally runs out this month so I’m free from that and while I thought about getting a new and improved blackberry… ah forget, the fact is that if I did I know I’ll just wish I had gotten an iPhone. So. I’ll just give into that.
Okay. After this I’m done for a while with the China materials. We’ve got a backlog of Atlanta stuff and I’ma try my hand at making an ‘Atlanta’ video – ha, and the people who live outside the perimeter (in the suburbs) can see what it’s like to live ITP and in the neighborhoods… but first! I started out making this video and then quickly realized that it was going to require a gabillion cuts… and then eventually I stopped and told myself that I’d just work on it a little at a time everyday… and then I stopped… so I’m really stopping now – so it’ll just forever be unfinished… but I suppose that’s good… cause we’re clearly not finished traveling. And although leaving the country for a month or more at a time always seems like it’s going to be a challenge… we have no doubt that we’ll be doing it regularly… until we eventually make the actual leap and move abroad.
