[ waldo ]


I just finished watching "Pooh's Heffalump Movie" in Korean and without subtitles. This isn't to say that I understood the vocal dub, but as a kid's movie it was pretty straightforward to follow on its own. There's something to be said about watching movies aimed at a younger audience as a method to increase comprehension; I imagine the process works near-universally. There were a few words that sounded familiar in the 68 minute feature, and during the second half I asked my flatmate how to say 'elephant' in Korean. Despite my best efforts the closest I came to saying 코끼리 correctly was still pretty far off the mark. It did bring out a few giggles from my flatmate though, which is good enough for me.

Speaking of that, today is her birthday and I have to work through the main part of the day. I hope she has a fantastic time, as she really is a wonderful friend. I did a lot of sneaking around two nights ago to prepare the first of her presents; fortunately, she seemed to like it and my back pocket only got a little wet in the process. Euh, not that anyone else knows why.

I start work in a little over four hours. I think that means it's time for bed.
