___________________________________________________From Russia with laughs.
What else? Well, earlier this month I checked out a few of my inbound links to the website from October & found a blog in Russia that when treated to Alta Vista's Babelfish provided some amusement.
Well 'amusement', aside from the fact that the writer was using my images to study for a 'how to' in creating my work. Hmmmmm. yes, that's why I showcase my work!
But still, read & giggle:
O.K. so firstly, huh? It's like reading Shakespeare & how the heck does Tolstoy come in to it?
Secondly, I love, love love the translation of 'drooling' & thirdly, I'm guessing, the bobbin thing translates as French knitting using a wooden cotton real with four nails hammered into it (or maybe you girls owned a posher, shop bought version). Ahh (nostalgia moment), French knitting, a time when toys were a little simpler & a lot cheaper than XBOXs or Roboraptors. Can you imagine what 2006's children would say this Christmas, if they unwrapped a contraption for creating French knitting......? At a guess "What the **** is this crap! Where my new laptop!" And I'm guessing, "sorry darling, not this year, the wedding's tapped us out", isn't going to wash.
So, getting back to Ye Russian Girls - a bit wide off the mark but thanks for the laugh. And in the spirit of helping you understand this 'technology':
Oh & you, readers of my diary, can all call me 'Chantal Of Mallett' from now on (I like to think of it, as a little like Helen of Troy).
Wedding Met watch - a staggering 12 suppliers, a whole 2 up on the end of last month!
