My story, Daya and Dharma, forthcoming in GÜD Magazine issu 4, is being translated! I'm so thrilled!

:hooray:

There's a sample paragraph here (http://www.gudmagazine.com/blog/archive/2009/4/1/gud-goes-pay-per-view-and-adds-lolcat-translations/)!

Update! Kaolin kindly posted the sample translation in post 9 of this thread!

Uh, guys? Guys? I'm impressed with how many people this got, but it's a joke :)

Thank you!
You really should follow the link to see the poetry, the ... might I say lyricism? of the translation. It's nothing I'd ever predicted would happen.

So cool. Language addict that you are, this must be particularly sweet. Or shweet. Or -

I think I'll quit before I get myself into trouble.

Oh, Shweta, too funny! I was completely taken in until you actually posted the translation. Then, thinking my brain was malfunctioning, I did follow the link and lo and behold it was the same thing!! :ROFL:

Just love this day on AW. I work by myself so there's no one to play tricks on me!

To be fair, I actually was pretty thrilled to be part of the joke.
So it's not entirely false...

I love the chaos of it, I do, and the work some people put into clever jokes.

I don't like when people think it's okay to be mean on April 1st, but fortunately that's a vanishingly small exception on AW, I mean, AB :D

Well done, Shweta! Unfortunately, now we'll all have to actually read a member's stuff before we gush that praise we gush so well :D

I should do this more often, clearly.

Sparkles aside... you're relieved to see Bang?
Because it was too weird before?
