… and of course, the French

I really don’t like mosquitoes. They disturb my sleep. If until now i used to enjoy dreams equally well in Russian, Hebrew and English, i now have to suffer French-speaking nightmares (!!), (no) thanks to these abominable creatures.

A propos French: yesterday, someone tried to download Thurston Moore‘s “Psychic Hearts” from me, all the files at the same time, which obviously didn’t work for him, so, being nice and helpful as i am (ahhhh…) i explained how he should download it. And guess what, he said “i don’t understand English. French, maybe?” He didn’t know who’s he dealing with. So here’s what i told him, with accents left out intentionally, preserved for future generations, thanks to babelfish:

je ne sais parler pas francais tres bien, mais j’essayerai:

si vous voulez telecharger toutes les chansons de Thurston Moore, telechargez-alors les un. Si vous les telechargez toutes dans le meme temps, cela ne fonctionnera pas.

si vous entrez dans le mode “a distance aligne” (“remotely queued”), ne rendez pas, attendez quelques minutes et cela fonctionnera a la fin

The bummer is that he disconnected right after that. Oh well.
