I ♥ Google Language Tools

Especially when they just launched Thai language translator last week LOL

I didn’t even know about it until Flowerypoopoo-san sent me a tinyurl link, saying that he’s so disappointed in my Thai writing skill. And I was like, what? I haven’t typed anything in Thai for ages, except for that one post with A-san, but it’s locked, so no one should be able to read it anyway. So, I confusingly clicked on the link which went straight to my blog, but everything on it was in Thai.

Once I started reading through my entires, I laughed so hard I almost cried as it was soooooo wrong I couldn’t even recall my original entries by reading the translated version! It was THAT friggin’ hilariously bad! xD

My most favorite one was my ‘The Farmer and The Cow’ entry. Once google translated it, it turned into ‘An Agriculture and A Female Rhino’ *dies laughing* Where on earth did this come from?! LOL

Google is still improving this translator (speaking of trying to take the fun right out of it XD), but so far it’s my latest giggling generator. LOL

A very much needed laugh during this stupid time.

Work has been stressful.

The work itself, due to quarterly business plan update, and the current economic situation. At the 4th quarter performance reporting, Boeing not only reported almost a billion dollars loss but also more workforce reduction target. The total of 10,000 positions — 4,500 from BCA, the rest from other divisions of the company.

Anyway, there’s a new rating system they’re using for this reduction. I’m not going to go into details, but basically, employees don’t even know where they rank among others with the same skill code.

Official notice will come out on 2/20, but my little bird told me that the ‘risk list’ will be coming out of Friday the 13th.

A perfect day.

I shouldn’t even think about checking ticket price.. *headdesks*

It snowed today.

Didn’t stick, but friggin’ cold, which was bad enough.

Anyway, my group has a small pool going on: When will be the last snow day in Puget Sound area for this winter. Being a dork, I picked 3/29 without even thinking, just to have the magic number right next to my name LOL

Hey, as long as it makes me grin every time I look at the whiteboard, this stress relief strategy works! XD

    *hugs* I’m reading this on Friday the 13th. Hope you are safe & not at risk. Picking 3/29 is not being a dork LOL Maybe you will win after all Tono is pretty powerful ^^

    Your rhino translation made me think of that scene in Ace Ventura When Nature Calls. If you’ve not seen the movie, you have no clue what I’m talking about but if you have… LOL

    *clings* Thanks Glenda! Luckily, I’m really not at risk, so I can breathe easily until they announce another layoff -“-

    LOL I watched Ace Ventura but couldn’t really remember it, maybe I should check it out again xD
