    Well, in a sense, yes. The unfortunate side is I wrote the story in Microsoft Word, and after the reboot, installed Corel WordPerfect. So I have to rework everything.

    And it is always good to have a back-up plan.

    Just letting you know that there's no need for you to figure out some way for me to get my files back from my crashed computer. I was poking around on the laptop today, and found that because my hard drive was automatically split into a C and D drive, only the C drive was rebooted. So everything on the D drive, the drive where I store everything, was safe.

    This just goes to show how knowledgeable I am with computers. XD

    Try Swedish to English, because that's Swedish. I can understand some of it, but even though Swedish is our second official language, I'm not very fluent with it. Of course, you had no way of knowing what language that is ^-^ In the end, all the languages look very same if you don't know what it means. And if it's not written in Greek or Russian or Chinese. Of course, I can run that song by some translators myself, if you want.

    And Finntroll is indeed a Finnish band, but their lead vocalist is a finlandssvensk (that's in Swedish, there's really no good translation for that. In Finnish, they are suomenruotsalaiset), one of the Swedish-speaking Finnish people. That's why their songs are in Swedish.

    So, we Finnish people have to study Swedish in school because that's the second offical language of our nation. There are some 300 000 native Swedish-speakers here, but they're all as Finnish as I am. As a result, every city, town and village has a Swedish name as well as a Finnish one, and that goes for streets and other places as well. Even our national anthem has Swedish lyrics as well. I never really realize I live in a bilingual country because I'm so used to it. Every sign has to be in both Finnish and Swedish. But, well, many people hate the Swedish-speakin population because they generally come from a better background than Finnish-speaking ones and are also way more rich. Also, kids hate having to learn Swedish in school. I always thought it was a fairly interesting language. (Actually, we also have a third official language: the Sami language. That, however, is only spoken in Lapland, so it's not a major language here in the southern parts of this country.)

    Maybe that's enough for a cultural lesson, expecially one that you never asked for in the first place. I'm sorry for ranting about nonsense I just got on the mood and *poof*, I had written the whole thing. Anyway, if you want to know the lyrics of that song and for some reason can't get it translated, I'll help you. If you want me to translate more nonsense-lyrics of English, songs, hit me. I'm bored.
    I bet yo couldn't tell.

    Beh, a Michael Jackson song... You know, Finland is not that small xD Luckily I don't know the words for this one, well, apart from the "beat it"-part, so it still was fun. Only that I felt stupid for translating the beat it parts as bug off. I just thought it was closer to the Finnish word...

    [1st verse]
    They told him not never came here
    Don't want to see your face, you've got better disappear
    The Fire is in their eyes and their words are very lucid
    So bug off, only bug off

    [2nd verse]
    You'd better run, you'd better do what you can
    They don't want to see any blood, no be Macho Man
    If you want to be hard, better do what you can
    So Beat, but you want to be evil

    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong
    Only bug off, bug off,
    Only bug off, bug off,
    Only bug off, bug off,
    Root bug off, bug off,

    [3rd verse's]
    They outside to get you, better leave when can
    Do not want to be a boy, you want to be a man?
    Do you want to stay alive, better do what you can
    So bug off, only bug off

    [4th verse]
    You have to show them, that you definitely are not the Scared
    You're with PlayIn your life, this is not truth or venture
    They kicking you, he the Beat you guys,
    Then they talling you, that it is righteous
    So the Beat, but you want to be evil

    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong

    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong
    Just bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off

    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong

    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong

    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong

    Only bug off, bug off, bug off, bug off,
    No-one wants to be the Forlorns
    Show's "How Funky strong Is there a battle
    It not is gap who's right or wrong
    Only bug off, bug off, bug off
    Beat it, beat it, beat it

    And there were, like, a lot of repetition. Some parts were seriously fun, though. So, gimme another! xD Also, would you mind giving me your Yahoo Messenger name? You know, for the judging stuff - and for fun.

    I love the review. XD

    Well, the only serious part about my post in the FFL is the fact that I'm not posting in the thread anymore. I'm going to be spreading myself out into other fandoms elsewhere soon, and so I don't want to be completely active here. Besides, now the Lounge is free of me, so you can all completely relax. XD

    My mind tends to think of everything as a wank community, so I just come here full of bitter and awesome sarcasm.

    This is why I don't have many friends, but the ones I do have are the bestest friends I could ever ask for. <3 Because you all can handle my sarcasm and "let's take everything as srs bizness even though it's not" attitude. Which is how I mod now. XD I don't really take anything here seriously, and the times that I seem like I do, I don't. Ever.

    If it acts as any consolation, I could swear that I said script fics were allowed only if the author was a dead English gent. Don't know where I said that, but I could swear that I did.

    Dead English writers? Probably as a joke, really. The best ones were pretty much dead and English, but it's hard to deny some of the brilliance that modern theatre's pulled off. Avenue Q's Jeff Whitty, for example. And then there's Jonathan Larson, who did RENT. Granted, this is opinion, but still.


    Then, as I'm writing the paper, my topic seems to go a completely different direction and I have to fix my thesis to compensate.

    Haha. I know how that feels.

    Oooh, you're halfway done with the MST.

    Yep. It'll take me a few days to get the rest done, but I swear it will be by Christmas.

    With my Digimon fic, it was for National Novel Writing Month. For that, I write my fics straight onto the computer so I can have an easy word count each day. Which means that I don't write it long-hand at all, except for my notes...which I threw out. XD

    That was the only fic too that I wrote straight onto the computer that I wanted to keep.

    That I'll do! This will be fun... So, let's see. I'll try to keep the English as bad as the Finnish is, so you spot any awkward structures, that's because I tried to be true to the Finnish one xD

    This was a great accomplishment!
    I'm almost creating an entry here:
    "a huge success!"

    It's hard to exaggerate
    My satisfaction. (it was the wrong grammatical case for Finnish, though)

    Aperture Science:
    We do, what I have for myself
    Because we can.

    You get good for us all
    Apart from those, who have died.

    But there's no sense in yelling
    Beyond every mistake.
    You only has to try
    As far as you cease cake.
    And science is allowed to make
    And you make clean weapon
    So that people, who are
    Still alive.

    I'm not even angry...
    Thus, I am sincerely right now -
    Although broke my heart with you
    And killed me.

    And ripped me apart.
    And threw every piece to the attention of a fire.
    Suchlike they are burned it hurts, because
    I was so happy for you!

    And now these places informations
    So a beautiful line.
    And Beta-phase.
    We are gets free on time!
    So I'm happy I have a burned
    Think of all that we have learned -
    So that people, who are
    Still alive.

    To go forth and leave (imperative) me ...
    I think, you want to stay inside...
    Maybe you find someone else
    You can help?
    Maybe black mesa (mesa is totally not Finnish)?
    It was a joke! Haha! Grease the opportunity!

    Anyway this cake is fine!
    It's so delicious and moist!

    Look at me: still to talk
    When science-making excists!
    When I watch there
    It makes to me happy about, I love you.

    I'm for accomplishing experiments
    Is experiment must be done.
    There are people, who are
    Still alive.
    And believe me I am
    Still alive.
    I'm doing science and I'm
    Still alive.
    To me fabulous and I'm
    As yet alive.
    Even if you are he dies I'll be (The I'll be was in English. wut?)
    Still alive.
    And when you are dead I be
    Still alive.

    As yet alive.

    Still alive.

    I also added some notes. At some points, that was hilarious. You have more of those for me? ^u^

    And I haven't looked into the FFL once since that post. I only look at threads where there's a potential for rule breaking, and I leave the FFL alone. So if you had never told me, I never would have known. So you didn't lose me as a friend. XD;

    Just checking: you want me to translate it back to English or just tell if it makes any sense? I noticed some funny-ish sentences there...

    Good luck with the chart. Yeah, if it's objective, it's probably better.

    As for papers, I can probably get them done no problem. It's just getting them started that's a bit of a problem for me. >_O

    Haha. Have you seen their sea kitten stories, yet?

    Also, no problem. It'll be a moment, though, because I've yet to finish your MST as well. (About halfway done. And then, I'm going back to read through the jokes to see if they're actually, you know, funny. Oh, writing when I'm half-asleep.)

    Also, yeah, go figure. But you'll have that. And I really don't know if he still is or if he's still blowing me off. =/ Oh well. He's not getting a review from me anymore, I think, until he saves his work and shows that he's actually read my first review. It's really not worth it.

    Ouch. Well, it's good you've got credits. The AP program = totally worth it, if only because of the fact that they act as nets and are therefore awesome.

    You'd probably be best to scrap it because there's just so many little things that can really screw you up with that field, I think.

    And not much. Procrastinating like whoa on papers as usual. I'm at least halfway through with one (out of five due by the 19th), so that's good. But my mind keeps wanting to write more fanfiction. ;_;

    Thanks for the compliment, by the way. The source is hilarious, though.

About Me

  • About Post Office Buddy
    There's not a lot to tell. I enjoy playing games, playing my guitar, writing, reading, and running. I suppose if you want to know more about me, then you'll have to get to know me >.>
    I write Pokemon FanFiction and play the games. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Pokemon Special Manga, and I'm torn between the Yellow arc and the Crystal arc as my favorites. I did like the Ruby and Sapphire arcs, but Emerald was a bit... meh, and I haven't bothered reading past that yet.

    I play the Saxaphone and the Guitar to an extent. I can do some of the more difficult jazz solos on said sax, but I'm still struggling to learn some advanced guitar techniques. Sweep picking in particular is giving me quite a headache.
    Michigan (The land of the ice and snow)
    Male ♂
    Nothing exciting, unfortunately.
    Favorite Pokémon
    I don't know, I've grown to like nearly all of them equally. The list of Pokemon I dislike is much smaller, to be honest.
  • Signature
    I am returning once again (hopefully for good). I will be updating Affliction regularly and reviewing other people's fics every so often. If you would like to request a review, then please send me a PM.

    My FFC entry for April 2008: My Endless Loneliness
    My Discontinued, Chaptered FanFiction: The Fall of Light
    My current chaptered FanFiction: Affliction
