The Opposite of Engrish

I am enjoying my week off. I don't know how long I could keep this up: it's great to be off and do whatever you want but I can see this getting lonely really fast. Spent yesterday at Kings Dominion and treated myself to a chick flick in the evening; so far today I returned said chick flick, went to the post office, Costco, and dropped off a bunch of stuff at Goodwill. I have a massage and a facial at 1:30 and am meeting my old boss (the one I liked who left a while back) for drinks. Still to do: oil change, buy a new couch and cell phone, visit an old friend in Philadelphia, and finish my goddamed table.

One would think going to Costco at 11am on a Tuesday is a great idea. While there are a lot fewer people there, those people move very very slowly.

Fear not, internet surfing has not suffered. Gaze upon the glory of Slang City, a site full of translations of American films and music. Such as:

Black Eyed Peas, "My Humps"
What are you going to do with your big buttocks/your big buttocks?

Kanye West, "Golddigger":
Now I am not saying she's a woman who only cares about a man for his money
But she won't spend any time with a black man who doesn't have money

and this classic line from The Big Lebowski:
Jesus Quintana: Let me tell you something, annoying, stupid man. If you do anything crazy with us, if you take out a gun on the lanes, I'll take it away from you, put it in your anus and pull the fucking (used for emphasis) trigger until I've shot all the bullets into you and the gun is empty.
