    Nothing worse than a room full of poets, I swear :p. ... actually a room full of politicians would probably be worse.

    I still prefer;

    roses are #FF0000
    violets are #0000FF
    all my hearts
    are belong to you

    Dunno it a French version exists though; but it would look something like that (hey MoN started it! :lol:)

    Les roses sont rouges (roses are red)
    Les violettes sont bleues (violets are blue)
    Elles sont jolies (they are pretty)*
    Tout comme toi (as you are)

    yeah I know it doesn't rhyme sue me :shake: translating poetry is hard

    *Sweet "sucrée" isn't used as a term of endearment, it would be just... weird.

    OTHO Finished about half the space pirate story thingy I said I was doing. You forgot all about it, didn't you ?

    The fungus got all 14 scrubs. The three plum trees did not escape either, nor did the Spicata.

    Only the weeds.....

    Actually all you have to do is switch the last two words in your translation and the translation rhymes, Flix.

    Sorry but no, it wouldn't rhyme and besides the sentence, if I switched the words, wouldn't make sense anymore.

    Switch the words you and are, and then re-read the translated version of the poem :p - Then it rhymes - Also it still translates the same.

    Let's agree to disagree, I won't go into details as I'm pretty sure I'm the only here who speaks French.

    You probably aren't the only one around who speaks French Flix, however I was referring to the English translation. But if you still wish to disagree with me that's cool.

    @Dice; oooooooooh I thought you were refering to the French version. My bad.

    @Blackthorne TA; Enfin c'est la langue des gens civilisés et instruits. Il n'y a point de sciences ou d'arts qui ne fut, un jours ou l'autre, faites dans la langue de Molière ! :lol: -- just kiddin' - don't know what I'm saying ? just google translate it, I can't be bothered.

    edit: On second thought; don't, I just did, it's bad

    It looks like local farmers have been getting a second cut of hay, but not very much hay. I'll have a load to put on this afternoon...

    Went to another interview today, went surprisingly well. It's a typical office job, 9 to 5 in an office. I never would've thought that I would ever want a white collar office job. We really do change with age. Well, it's not a dream job, but meh I need to money. The student loan only cover tuition fee it doesn't cover rent, food or other "superfluous" thing as living on my own. Apparently the government believe I should stay with mum and dad... I believe living with your parents at 24 is kinda pathetic, I want out, fast.

    If it makes you feel any better you're doing better than my brothers, they are 26 and 27 and still both live at home. One of them hasn't had a job in years, and the other has been in university since before I started.

    Ugh, I was going to go for a run when I woke up this morning but it's already 36 degrees outside with the humidex and it isn't even 10 AM yet. This is going to be one of those days where I'm very thankful to have A/C.

    Tell me about it... one good thing about this heat is that it's more peaceful and quiet outside during the day than ever. :shake: Nobody wants to be out in this sun. The weather report's saying that we'll have 34-36° over the following days as well though, so that sucks as it's been very hot all week already.

    It may keep some people indoors but I still plan on getting some sunlight and fresh air today. Think I'll go for a walk down by the lakeshore in a little while. Granted, I'll probably be regretting that before I even get there, but I can't spend entire days indoors without going stir crazy.

    36 degrees - that's harsh. We're going to hit 27 today and that's bad enough. Unfortunately I have no AC :( . I guess it's underwear day for my boys again - sometimes I'm jealous of men because they have the option of walking around in just a pair of skivvies.


    Heya Tal, what happened to the chat?
