Hahaha, I love it. Veronika being corrupted by curry and bare feet. She'll be a 20's hippie in no time, all thanks to Akku.

Not just any animal. A camel. I adore camels. <3

I must ask though; Bactrian camel or a dromedary?

Haha, oh good! Me too.

This one's a dromedary. More about her mysterious origins shall be revealed in the next post!

They somewhat resemble a dinosaur, only with kind eyes and fur. Not to mention that they tend to look so smug all the time.

I cannot wait to hear it!

Veronika enjoys petting the animals. Her brother enjoys shooting them.

Ansel enjoys a healthy mixture of both: pet some animals, and shoot others. Then take the ones you've shot, skin them, stuff them, and continue petting at your leisure.

... That sounds healthy.

A bit like camel-puke. Yummy.

Wowwww, haven't used this OOC in a while!

The tea proverb translates approximately as "The first glass is as sweet as life, the second is as strong as love, the third is as bitter as death"

We haven't but now I realize why it was set up, hah, would've been faster than googling. And it sounds like very complicated tea after googling some.

"Stackars dig, lilla vän, du ser ju hemsk ut utan ögon, jag hoppas han gör klart dig snart." would directly translate as "Poor you, little friend, you look awful without eyes, I hope he finishes you soon". "Little friend" can be, depending on the tone of voice and the interpretation, be both patronizing or an endearment for someone younger than you, or a pet.

I'm not sure how similar it would sound to German, but sometimes if you know Swedish or German you can understand good chunks of the other language. I know the word for eyes(ögon/augen) is very similar though, but I forget if Ansel knows German!

Haha, noooooooooo. Ansel is actually quite weak on his European languages. Most of his French fluency is just because his mother/various private tutors drilled it into him, and then he spent a long time in Francophone Africa. Even his Spanish, such as it is, is Latin American rather than European.

Hah, alright XD I just thought I'd mention it since the languages are similar in some ways, and sometimes Swedish words are even similar to English. Shame on you Ansel! European languages are perfectly fine languages and you just learn the Romance ones? Tut tut.

I should add though that I gave the phrase a listen on google translate and it was slightly terrifying to me.

Haha, which phrase? and which language did you listen to it in?

All my work emails now are in Turkish, which happens to be a language I... don't... really speak... and I'm swiftly figuring out that google translate's Turkish options leave much to be desired. For example, this line from the vice principal's email: "Appeal not only to students, parents should be able to fuck a teacher of students with speech."

Ironically, the email is about developing communication skills...

The one I translated above, hah. And in Swedish. It was horrible.

I... genuinely had to stop myself from laughing out loud at that. Well, that's also a way to communicate I suppose... Sounds like a very open-minded school you're working at ;) We actually tested online translators during a class in translation. Google Translate won with quite a margin when it comes to Swedish and English, hah. Surprisingly.
