Thanks for popping in!
Whilst prepping for the Sunday show 2-4, I had a little breakthrough. Now it may only be a little thing, but to me it was a BIG THING INDEEDY!!
Black shrink plastic has always eluded me, so I decided today was the day to figure it out. The new Joy to the World Bauble would look so lovely in gold on black, but tiny. She likes a challenge…
Look! First run at it, not so good (“not so good” said in a strong Russian accent). Let’s learn a bit of Russian at the same time (Why? Why am I shrinking black plastic with a picture on it??)
Disaster in Russian looks familiar actually : катастрофа [katastrofa]. When I use the square brackets, that’ll tell you how to pronounce the word, ok?
Never mind. Let’s rethink this….rethink: пересмотреть = [peresmotret]
That’s more like it!! бинго [bingo] Hahahahaha
But I can’t give the whole game away, now can I?! There’d be no tips and tricks on telly if I spill the beans now! So if you tune into HOCHANDA on Sunday, I will be sure to show you how to get a perfect result.
. I know. Я дразню. [YA draznyu] = I’m teasing. Well I hope that’s what it means! I did see something about sexual arousal there, too! Yikes! It’s a minefield, this Russian!
In a past life, one of my favourite pastimes was to go for a walk in a dictionary. To hop from language to language, from definition to definition. Fascinating – and often very funny. The whole concept of Lost in Translation is very real. I mean, let’s face it, we often completely misinterpret things in our own language, our mother tongue! So who knows what I’ve said in Russian here!
Nice stamp though, eh?!?!?
Enough woffle. Back to work! By the way, we’ve got a good selection pack of top quaklity shrink plastic on our website. Click HERE to investigate
Прощай . [Proshchay].....goodbye....
Love & Hugs,
