Wild Postcards From The Edge (Part 3)

Well, this one came next. It says "Your sister said she would abuse me if I didn't write to you." Kind of hard to make out the signature. Something that starts with a "J", it looks like. So Critter, if you feel the need to abuse somebody, don't start with the "J's". He performed admirably.

I stared at this one for a few minutes when I got it and said "I have no idea what this says, but that looks oddly familiar."

Turns out I was right. It's written in Klingonii. It says:
"Today is a good day to die!"
"We are Klingons!"

Trekkies will never die, brave warrior.

And this one is the last one I got. From the word at the top, "Sawubona" I figured out that it was written in Zulu. "Sawubona" means "I see you."

It must be a dialect that my translator didn't have. All I could decipher was that he was a builder and he knows my sister. After that things got a little fuzzy. I got part of a translation that said something about "With the heart always who appear from the plans", which doesn't sound right at all.

I'll keep looking.

And thanks to NoisyFrogPond I am now hot on the trail of this one from the other day:
She says that the script is Armenian. So maybe I can track down an Armenian speaker who could translate it for me. Whoo Hoo!

If I could just find an Armenian Zulu I could kill two birds with one stone!

And that's all of the postcards I have for now. Will there be more? I guess we'll just wait and see.

Here's the weekend lineup:
Saturday: White Tee-Shirt Day, Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day and Peppermint Patty Day.
Sunday: National Plum Pudding Day, Be Electrified day and Be Satisfied Being Single Day.

  1. National Tortellini Day? Hell, yeah! Lemme get a different name while I'm at it. Suggestions, anyone?

  2. Hmmm, Chanel was asking me yesterday if I spoke Klingon. Of course, it was in the midst of a conversation about Star Trek, but I wouldn't rule her out as a bloody-thirst stalker who has decided that it's "a good day to die"...for you. I would sleep with one eye open. She seems pretty viscous. I bet she knows how to kill someone six different ways with her flute.

    1. Bryan- Yikes! Now you have me skittish of flautists. Texan flautists, anyway.

      And it wouldn't really surprise me if you did speak Klingon.

      Really.

  3. Hmm, I will have to ask Buyi what her dialect of Zulu is.

    1. Critter- I'd like to know what that said. And the Armenian one, too!
