In trying to write this blog in English I hope finally able to start jabber a few words in this language. I will mobilise various tools for that my text be in accordance with the rules of grammar and spelling. Thanks for your corrections and comments.

Surnommé Pot-au feu, Podef est l’un des plus grands joueurs de défénéstration potentielle polonais. Renvoyé par la fédération mondiale des défénestreurs pour raisons de dopage, Podef devint pope orthodoxe, puis polyvendeur de pop-corns. Il parvint à la postérité en défénestrant des peaux d'éléphant et des Ipods en forme d’hypopotames femmelle. Podef prit sa retraite internationale à l’occasion d’un match pontifical face à l’équipe de Potsdamer platz, qu’il remporta par 3 défénestrations potentielles à 1. 

Nicknamed Pot roast, Podef is one of the greatest Polish players of potential defenestration. Dismissed by the World Federation of défénestrers because of doping, Podef became Orthodox priest, then polysalesman of popcorn. He reached to posterity defenestrating elephant's skins and Ipod's in the shape of female hypopotame. Podef retired international on the occasion of a papal match against the team of Potsdamer Platz, which he won by 3 potential defenestrations to 1.

Thanks to help me to translate these sentences.

They've started using letters combinations that could have a meaning, they're easier to type... and sometimes they stick to your mind!

Bernard said...

Dis-moi Momo, tu m'as ecrit que ta soeur venait d'entrer au departement Ameriques du musee d'ethnographie de Genève. Crois-tu qu'elle pourrait me donner des tuyaux au sujet des cache-sexe funeraires de la culture Marajoara du Brésil? J'ai publie un bel exemplaire que possede le musee dans mon blog:
http://lingni-net.blogspot.com/search?q=Marajoara+culture

Momo said...

Bernard, elle est en train de postuler à ce poste qui est à pourvoir, rien n'est sûr.

Dans un cas comme dans l'autre, je lui poserai la question parce-qu'elle connaît bien l'institution, elle y a travaillé quelques années.

Bernard said...

Merci, c'est gentil.

Momo said...

Une question, Bernard, qu'est-ce que tu entend par "tuyaux" ? Des infos ou des contacts ?

Bernard said...

Des infos, qui en sait davantage sur ces objets.

Momo said...

Ok

krn said...

Momo, I think that you are really crazy.

krn said...

Pot au feu = Beef stew

Example :

I often think, not without dizziness, of the quantity of beef and vegetables that it would be necessary to make a beef stew with the water of Geneva's Lake.
(Pierre Dac)

Momo said...

Ho, you are here ?

Whouahahaha, probably all vegetables of the world aren't enough.

Momo said...

Beef stew ? I afraid that it doesn't rhyme. But the "Pot-au-feu" isn't a french speciality ? For instance, the pizza kept the same name in all countries.

Momo said...

Really crazy ? I afraid that you are right.

krn said...

The "Pot au feu" is a French speciality. We translate it into English by beef stew. There are any sorts of stew. The Irish stew, the Flemish stew and doubtless others.

Your craziness is your best charm, Momo... at least, the only one I know.

Momo said...

Thanks, krn, you gave me a bit courage in a discouragement moment.

krn said...

Momo, I think that we cross both difficult moments. I believe that you also felt my distress.
Thank you too.

krn said...

May I do something to make you feeling good ?

krn said...

I do not go to Mao's training course. I have no possibility of going to Brittany.
Momo, have you holidays for Easter?

Momo said...

Yes, I'll have vacations, why ?

Momo said...

Did you continue to eat nettles ?

krn said...

Momo, I actually can eat nothing.
It is the third day. I believe that I am sick.

krn said...

Oh, I just asked for the holidays to speak about something else.
I return to the Maggy's ceramic workspace next week.
I am going to find Tara again.
I hope that she will shake me in the good sens.

Momo said...

It's not serious if you eat nothing during some days, krn, but you must drink a lot !

Ho ! Tara ? I'm happy to know from her, I'm sure that she will help you a lot.

krn said...

Momo, I try to eat, but it doesn't pass, it hurts me.
I just drink tea with honey, quite slowly.
I am very tired, I wonder if I will be able to work tomorrow.

krn said...

I must say good night, Momo.
:-*

Momo said...

I'm in process of relieve after a week of flu.

Good night, my dear.

doreus said...

Good morning all!

Just a little detail: "Pot au feu" in French translates to "Pot roast" in English. A "stew" is the equivalent of a ragoût which is slightly different, although from the same braised meat family of dishes...

This being said, I hope that you recover your health quickly KRN, in order to enjoy either stew or pot roast... nice reconstituting food!

krn said...

Thank you very much, Doréus, I think I ate something contaminated, I was invited at my mother-in-law for her birthday and another person was also sick, but less than me.
Fortunately, I had brought a meal for Léandra.
I think she tried to kill me !

krn said...

I would have translate "Pot roast" by "rôti braisé".
The "pot au feu" is cooked in water.
Irish stew is cooked in guiness beer.

Marilyn said...

:) gracias por tu mensaje, y me reí mucho con Podef!
quiero conocerle!!!

Momo said...

Si, Marilyn, Podef es como Cortazar, Miles, Hohn, Yoko y Vincent, un ser postumo.

Gracias por la visita.

Besikis

Momo said...

Your mother-in-law tried to kill you, krn ? Why ??????

Momo said...

Thanks Doreus, I'll correct immediately.

Momo said...

Hum... Now I'm in doubt, finally, who is right ?

Pot roast or beef stew ?

krn said...

Why she would want to kill me ? Because she hates me. Because I learnt to say no.
My mother-in-law eats only meat and cakes.

Momo said...

You shouldn't continue to see her. In the life we have to learn avoid toxic persons.

krn said...

You are right, Momo, I wanted to be kind and it was stupid. I had nothing to do with her. That will serve me as lesson.

Momo said...

I'm in a step where I learned that I've no time for lose with toxic persons, including one singular seconde.

And I think that in this way you help these people to respect themself.

krn said...

That is too late to change herself.
She is eighty five years old.
I really tried to be a good friend for that women. I didn't success.

What you are saying reminds me to be carefull. I am terrorized by the idea that you could find me toxic for you one day.

Momo said...

If you were toxic with me, we would not be here discussing quietly.

krn said...

It is true for now, Momo, but I know that things can change if, for example, you meet a woman of whom you would be really in love.

When my friends get married, I lost them. I must accept that it may be possible for you and I would be less stressed.

Momo said...

Everything change, everything moves, krn, even the things you think be immovable.

Momo said...

Good night, krn, I fall asleep.

krn said...

Yes, I know it, Momo, and this impermanence fascinates me as much as it frightens me.

krn said...

Good night Momo.

Momo said...

Hello, krn,

Why the impermanence frightens you ?

krn said...

The impermanence, Momo, it is the time which goes away without ever leaving anything intact.

The impermanence supposes that we have no links, or that we assume our suffering.

krn said...

We are far away from podef...

krn said...

I visited Bernard's blog, at the address which he indicated. As regards the object, I had understood that it was a funeral ornament which played the role of identity card and that the various drawings indicated the importance or the social role of the woman buried with this ornament. But it would seem rather to me that it is a ritual "garment".
I did not find explanation for this moment.

Momo said...

Sorry, krn, I was in a little party with classmates.

If you want, we can continue our conversation tomorrow with the full moon.

krn said...

But, Momo, there is no reason to be sorry, on the contrary. I am happy for you to see you going out and I hope that you felt good in this evening party.
Enjoying life is the most beautiful thing of the world. :-)
Have sweet dreams.

Momo said...

Once and for all, I cannot think that this world be made to enjoying life, krn. I'm here for another thing. But, thank you very much for the encouragement.

krn said...

Momo, I cannot let you think that your spiritual vocation, as mine, must be sad. I know that you are a man whose intellectual, artistic and charismatic possibilities exceed the average of the humanity.
The way is hard,I know it, but think of the aim, Momo. Remember that we chose these painful embodiments and these sacrifices. We needed them to progress on the way of light.
I trust you. You are the best.

krn said...

I must go to the post office now, but I'm back soon. half an hour, no more.

Momo said...

Krn, you are too kind, your encouragement is really huge, but I understand very well all what you try to say me.

I'll go to swim now.

See you later.

krn said...

Ther are not only encouragements, Momo, I really think what I say.

Yes, go to swim, that's a fine idea.
The lake will strengthen your energy.

Momo said...

Absolutely, krn, you are right, the lake has strengthened my energies, I feel better now, but not only thanks to the lake, but also thank to you.

krn said...

Thanks ? what for ? I didn't move from my chair while you where going to swim.

Momo said...

Don't underestimate the power of molecular words KRN.

krn said...

Ok, Momo, bhen, be my angel and I shall be your wings.

krn said...

Sorry, then.

krn said...

Will you come to "Orties Folies" in march 2010 in Versailles ?

Momo said...

Nettles ? Hohooo, why not ?

krn said...

You do not like that I urge you to go out of your customs.
But it is my way. I am a sagittarius, an archer, I send you arrows, and you, the capricorn, even injured, you hide yourself, never showing that I hit you.

Momo, I move on the road of the liberation and you are going to follow me.
I have a new secret against the attacks of panic and it works.
When I feel one arriving, instead of putting me aside and making small and discreet, I raise the head as for a challenge. I am the strongest and I shall win.

krn said...

Excuse me. I forgot your loving adoration for nettles...

krn said...

The workspace of ceramic is not far from Versailles. If you come, you will see where Tara is born.

I lived in Versailles in 1975. I know the town.

krn said...

Hey, Podef ! The moon is here.

Momo said...

Dear krn, the moon is in progress since two days.
The melancholy is in process of make me a finicky person.

krn said...

Finicky ? Well, it's time to clean your flat, it will be well done !

Momo, do you want to hear me ?
I can sing for you, if you want.

Momo said...

Yes :-) Where ? How ?

krn said...

Momo,I asked to the moon to be soft with you and I give you this song to mean that I love very tenderly the little child who is deeply hidden in your mind. In another life, I would be happy if you were my beloved son.
I kiss you.

krn said...

I wish you a good night, I didn't sleep last night and I am too tired. :-)

Momo said...

Your words are too much beautiful, krn.

Why you don't slept last night ?

Your wish about the moon is efficient, thank you, krn.

krn said...

Hello, Momo, you did not sleep a lot either this night.
Yesterday I did not want to go to bed, then I ended what I had begun. I would like to feel good in my house and it needs that I spare time for it. I too much neglected it.

Momo said...

You are right, krn, I should tidy up my flat, too. That's annoying ! I hate the dust and, at the same time, I hate cleaning.

krn said...

The true danger is to begin to ignore the dirt. We become used to it and it is not good for the morale.
That means that we do not deserve a beautiful environment. To avoid that, I am going to change everything, not to keep rehearsing any more the ideas of past and eliminate most witnesses of my fears. I know that that is going to take time, but it is necessary.

krn said...

I know that it is going to take time.
I repeated "that" twice. It is not elegant.

Momo said...

It's maybe not elegant, but it's interesting.

Ok, you convinced me.

Hum... maybe I will to swim before, hum...

The danger is procrastination also !

krn said...

Swiming ? I am terribly envious.

krn said...

I am going to have to content myself with the bucket and the broom.

Momo said...

Envious ? But you have a lime-tree, plenty of nettles in your garden, etc... the grass is always more green in the garden of the neighbor. But, I'm relieved to learn that I can still generate a sense of envy. And, to tell the truth, you are right, the proximity of the lake is really an invaluable privilege. I never myself tired to say that.

Momo said...

Is your sand castel gave you happiness ?

I'm astonished, the sens of cold is more cold when the water is less cold that when the water is icy.
When the water is icy, the cold is only a concept of cold, but when the water isn't very cold, the water is really cold water.

krn said...

Ah, I felt that you were here. I just come down from the second floor. I spent the afternoon to measure rooms to know how much I need plaster, painting and glasscloth to make my renovation.

You are right, I have a garden. But the lake... It's the lake which I envy.

krn said...

When the water is icy, Momo, you don't feel anymore.
You are anesthetized.

krn said...

Momo, my sand castles were always huge, disproportionate, with many shells for the decoration.

The next day, I returned to see the ruins left by the tide and I asked the adults on the beach if they wanted to visit them. Sometimes, some people said yes and I did the guide.

Momo said...

Very beautiful souvenir, krn. Last summer I took a lot of photographs of sand castels after the tide.

krn said...

We have both the sixth sense, Momo, I am persuaded of that.
I would also have capture them if I had had a camera, regrettably, I had my first one only in 2006.
Fortunatly, I have a good remember.

Momo said...

I'll post my pictures of sand castels when I will learn how download the pictures of mobile phone.

krn said...

I am going to search, Momo. Is your telephone a Bluetooth one ?

krn said...

May be you can find here many interesting things.

Momo said...

Yes, bluetooth, but I know that unfortunatly my mobile phone isn't compatible with Mac.

It's the problem.

Anyway, thank you very much krn, you are too kind.

I wish you sweet dreams.

krn said...

Momo, the best solution, it is to ask somebody who possesses a PC to connect your telephone in USB. You put your photos in your e-mail box and you send them to yourself.
When you return at home, you get them back among your mails with your Mac.

Thank your for your wishes, you have a heart of gold.

Momo said...

Yes, I think that's the best solution. The only problem : The missing of spontaneity.

krn said...

Aren't you excessive, Momo?

The spontaneity is important at the time of the capture of the image.
Then, it is only the file which passes on this spontaneity.

I like my car, it is well to me. Regrettably, the functioning of doors is unpredictable.

When I want to open it, I never know which doors are going to be opened and which doors are going to remain closed.

When I enter my car by the back door, the one for the suitcases, it is doubtless spontaneous, and that has the merit to maintain my flexibility, but I recognize that sometimes, I would like not to have this surprise, especially when I need to leave fast or when I am not alone.

On the other hand, that amuses Léandra a lot, then why would I repair ?

Momo, spontaneity is a good thing, but we sometimes have to do with the meanders of the technicality.

Momo said...

Krn, Leandra isn't alone to laugh and, your have absolutely right !

krn said...

Well, no problem, Momo, when you will have to enter my car, We shall certainely laugh together.

Momo said...

We are already in the process of laugh together, krn.

krn said...

And it is really the best relation which exists, let's go on!

Momo said...

Krn, what does it mean "let's go on!" ?

krn said...

To go on is to continue. Momo.

Momo said...

Like "continue comme ça", "ne t'arrête pas", "garde le cap" ?

krn said...

Yes!!! It's absolutely that.
I leave at 17. Wait for me. :-)

Momo said...

Yes, now I will to go bathing in the lake, but Podef will stay here.

krn said...

Momo, I hope that the bath was good for you.
I am very happy, the road was not frightening.
I think that I shall soon be completely free.
I feel quiet.

Momo said...

krn, I like read your molecular and sweet words.

It's incredible that our health go better together. Maybe this is my first true spring since very very long time.
The bathing was very pleasant, but I walked above on a piece of broke glass, and the blood started to flow, and I had the image of the poor woman in the morgue.

The rock was full of blood, but I found it almost beautiful.

I'm in process of improvement but that's not yet won.

The sunset was marvellous and I seen my blood as the life and, not only as the death.

krn said...

Momo, I am really moved by your story of blood. Yes, the blood and the flesh, it is the life. It is what makes us human beings.

I feel that your revival is in process. In spite of this wound, I am deeply happy for you.

Please, come back to life in the same time of me, I pray our God, Tara and the White Goddess for that every evening and I dream of the night when your dark eyes will give me their first glance.
