I'm Still Alive!

As some of you may know I was sick this past weekend, and progress on IIUM/KUS has been slowed slightly. But my thanks to everyone for sending in all of those lovely get well cards, cookie bouquets, and gift certificates- they really raised my spirits. And a big thanks to Noriko Fujinaka, who sent me this lovely drawing I've posted here. I don't know what it says, but it sure is cute. However I feel I have to make it clear that I don't have a cat, just in case anyone is thinking of sending some get well cat nip or something. I have no use for it.

But back to business, we are down to the single digits. . . barely. 9 shots left to animate/clean up. These are the big ones, but I shall plow through them or die trying. Well, I'll plow through them or get really tired trying.

Get well world.

Robot Rights.

R to L, J-style, it says:

Ben: "I've been sick"

This line is really fucking colloquial and is my least favorite kind of Japanese to try to understand
Kitty: "Please - in the bad way he is - give my master a hand"
Or something...its the "kare aru" clause which I have no fucking clue about...Japanese sucks ass

Hah wow, I was waiting to see what damage my shitty babelfish translation would inflict upon your mind.

Babelfish probably would have done better...I tried to render it into normal-sounding English...but that second line is such esoteric Japanese (to my ears/eyes) that it really defies easy approximation.

Cute pic though.
