I'm going to do something today that I've never done before on a Latin Lesson:
be funny! recycle a photo.
It's true. Last week's photo probably didn't fit the phrase perfectly, mostly because those three were already smiling. But, still, you could almost say that that girl in the middle's smile was a little forced, and that guy on the right is trying a bit too hard to be
gay happy. And the girl on the left...with those mud-caked melons...well, we're all happy to see her.
I've been a little ranty this week, too, and I'd apologize if it didn't involve a lot of swearing and some things that were mildly amusing. For the record, it's still pretty fucking hot in my bedroom, and the corner where the desk sits seems to be in this permanently fucked position temperature-wise. If it's cold outside, I'm turtling while sitting here. If it's hot, well, the coinpurse is hanging mighty low.
Thank my friend, Dr. Assy, for that particular turn-of-phrase. Brilliant, isn't it? That's why he's a doctor and...well, I shan't go there. Not today.
Anyway, I'll keep this shit short and sweet, so that we can get to the revival of dead languages already! I've written a short tableau for our three muddy heroes from last week. It should prove--if not entertaining--perhaps useful if you find yourself in the forum or the public baths or some such.
Pronounced: "Too! Ah daix-trah! Fyoo-gee-tay in mah-lahm croo-came!"
Pronounced: "Ah, em ees-took rake-tee-oose. Noonk, doh-mee-nye, proh may sahl-tah-tay!"
Clearly, I need to give up this whole concept of "novel writing" and just write a screenplay in Latin. Am I right? Damn right I am.
Anyway, you can clip little pieces of these things out for use in other aspects of your everyday life. I tried to break the lines up so that you could lift what you need from the Latin and use it.
Come back next week when I try something else completely new! I'm hoping that it works. We'll see...
Also, I might go back to doing writing updates on the weekends again, and/or work in those silly-ass words that I keep wanting to use in writing or something else a little different that I have rattling around in my head, but probably is something better suited to the weekend when not a lot of people read anyway. But, I'd kind of like to get back to posting nearly everyday and hopefully I'll be able to shuffle off these feelings of writer's block. Whatevs. I've got muddy women to watch dance. Valete!
