Should be working. The person who wrote the first 40 pages of manual am translating obviously got tired, went oh holiday, got fired or something cause from page 41 there is a definate change and new writer is a lot more long winded. Slog, slog, slog. Procrastinating.
Just got phonecall (usually get emails) from my most current project manager at other translation company have been doing a bit for lately. Can I take on a short (500 characters) job right now. Said OK after confirming wasn't thesis outline on discrete mathematics or nano tubes. Is a questionnaire. Should breake up my day of translating "click on XX to return to the XXX screen shown in diagram XXX". Riveting stuff.
Why females should avoid a girls night out after they are married...
The other night I was invited out for a night with the 'girls.' I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, 'I promise!' Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily.Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home.
Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up and cuckooed 3 times.Quickly, realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another 9 times..I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution, in order to escape a possible conflict with him. (Even when totally smashed.... 3 cuckoos plus 9 cuckoos totals = 12 cuckoos MIDNIGHT!)
The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, I told him'MIDNIGHT'... He didn't seem pissed off in the least.Whew, I got away with that one! Then he said 'We need a new cuckoo clock.'When I asked him why, he said, 'Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said 'oh shit.' Cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its, throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped over the coffee table and farted.
Oh - and I wont claim the above as my own. It was sent to me in one of those bulk funnies email from a friend.
