Frogblog :-)

October 26, 2008

On 25-26 October’08 the francophones have had an international colloquium in Sofia on the topic ‘Internet – necessity of communicating differently’, which I wish I’d attended. The presentation of my co-alumnus Ilia Iliev, French studies lecturer at the Sofia University, was on the topic: ‘Observations on neologisms in political blogs’ (which I just had the pleasure of going through). When it comes to political blogs the French can be very Sarcostique.

Scrabble with t-win-s

October 26, 2008

Twin little ladies at the roots of a twin tree. Playing scrabble with TweedleA & TweedleB Ani & Bobi – is no win. If they can’t come up with a word in French, they do so with a word in English. Be it a neologism, ‘papa‘ or ‘daddy’ – at the final score those t w i n s always win. Photo: Christian Zozol

I somehow prefer adjusting clocks backward rather than adjusting forward. One hour backward on a Sunday 🙂 But adjusting to the adjusted time in the next few days is a bit awkward for a summer & sunshine freak.
