I’m surfing le “toile d’araignée mondiale”!

I can’t believe it’s already been a month since my last post… I think this is the longest I’ve gone without writing anything.

Not much to report on my end, though since I’ve been on early shift for the last few weeks, I’ve been pretty tired – it’s just not that much fun to wake up at 0530.  At least the holidays are coming up!  The office closes from the 31st to January 3rd, and we’re back to work on the 4th.  Not a very lengthy holiday, but it will be nice to have even those 4 days off.

M’brain is a little fuzzy from sleepiness so I think I’ll end this here, but before I go, here’s a link to an article that had me laughing out loud (especially funny for those who speak/read French, but that’s not a prereq)

The French Get Lost in the Clouds Over a New Term in the Internet Age

Podcasting = “diffusion pour baladeur”?

Snowboarding = “saut acrobatique sur tremplin de neige”???

But my favorite was probably “toile d’araignée mondiale” (World wide web)

Make sure you read the side blurbs too! 🙂
