Can I get a "what what" for injuries that aren't as bad as they should be?

I have Beaten The Odds and have kept off a substantial amount of weight for (over) a year. Paraphrasing my doctor: "props, dude, DON'T FUCK UP NOW!!!"

I have been in DP since Friday and I have yet to do anything with anyone. This break is beginning to resemble last summer. Do I even have friends anymore? Yeah, probably not. Do I care? Surprisingly enough, not really. Whatever. Suck it, assholes.

Tomorrow... I will teach myself the instrumental case. And I will start up yet another journal en français (e forse in italiano, perche voglio migliorare e ricordare il mio italiano), parce que je veux me préparer pour ma classe avec Prof. B le semestre prochain. C'est possible que je sois l'écrire ici, dans ce journal. Seriously, I just had some major problems switching from Italian back to French--I was trying to go to Russian instead. Eek! Я не хотел писать по-русский!, and I'll just stop there before I totally make a fool of myself. (My Russian is, well, pretty awful.)

I thought about you the other day.
I'm in a pug community on good old LJ, and there's this Russian poster who has the cutest, fattest pug. But I'm pretty sure they only speak Russian, as all of their posts are in Russian and they only respond to the Russian replies. So I totally went to freetranslation.com and put in what I wanted to say in the English to Russian thing and put it in a comment. I bet it was terrible. Although they did reply with something and when I put it in the Russian to English conversion, it was something along the lines of thanks for the kind words! Gotta love shitty translations! :)

Haha! That's great. Freetranslation.com isn't THAT bad (although it is pretty awful); the general meaning translates through pretty well, IMHO.

I actually have a Russian friend here on LJ--she doesn't know English, I barely understand half of what she writes, and it's great in general. What's most awesome to me is how we actually manage to communicate: her dumbed-down Russian, my pidgin Russian, and a whole bunch of emoticons. :)
