OK, but now in French

Has anyone ever tried to read a physical book using a “Scan and Translate” App? No? Well, fuck. Guess we are going to find out how annoying *that* is. Hahaha.

A dear friend of mine wrote a book of her life and it happens to be in French. I’d been holding off on buying it. I have been trying to figure out how to get it in English as I am, sadly, only fluent in one language (two if you count sarcasm). She and I suck at communicating through E-mail, hahhahah (You get my E-mails yet? I have sent you all means of contact, lol). Anywayyyyy now I have a French book headed to my non-French home. BAHAHA. We are going to see how much gets lost in translation, hahaha.

I mean really this is my fault. I keep meaning to learn, and become fluent in, another language . BUT I CANNOT MAKE UP MY MIND WHICH ONE! It’s an important decision. I mean, I don’t want to waste what few brain cells I have left on the wrong one! lol. French is very high on the list. It’s in the top 3. I mean, also, I don’t even have time to brush my hair so learning a new language seems impossible.

In a surprising turn of evens my phone has told me to kick rocks and refuses to download google translate. BAHAHA. Stayed tuned for how much French kicks my ass. LOL.

I just keep thinking I need to figure out which country I want to be in once my kid graduates, because really that will dictate which language I stress my brain out with, cuzz you know, I’m getting old.

OK! I am off to day drink (keep your pants on, it’s regular drinking for me cuzz I work the night shift) and eat snacks.

    Catriona!
    No I don’t get your emails and that’s crazy! Last one I wrote was Thursday 1 from the email starting by “sir” and to your catriona one. Maybe in your spam?

    Thank you so much for buying my book!!!
    But fear not for the translations, I have written it in English first on my blog so I’ve just sent you the link via email (of Part I).
    In English descriptions of places are missing, I might have added some blurb sometimes and I improved the vocabulary, lacking in English, and the last chapters, but until those it’s pretty much the same.

    I’ll write another email to you soon.
    XOXO

    LOL

  3. French is hard. I took it in high school. I took German and Chinese in college, and both were easier! French is pretty, though, isn’t it?! Good luck reading your friend’s book!
