Cheating @ 11:32 am

I forgot to mention that the neighbor girl came down to use my parents computer while I was there yesterday. I said hi and asked her what she was doing. She said "cheating on some french." She had to write a story in french so she wrote it in english and then went to babelfish and translated it to french :)

The problem with that is that you don't want to get into complex sentence structure in english because most people don't learn complex french sentence structure until college level french. She has a good chance of getting caught if her teacher is smarter than a rock, which I would hope she is. Take it from me, did the same thing in high school, my teacher made me re-write it, ouch.

That's what I told her. "You don't think he'll figure it out?"

She told me that he likes her and cuts her breaks. Whatever, it's her deal not mine. I felt the same way you did.

Kelseyb is right :)
As far as I know, French can't be easily translated to English and vice-versa... these translators like babel && altavista don't work as humans translators :)

Google does low level translation to and from the "bork bork bork!" language. You should do a slight of hand and wait to see what happens. :)

...has she actually _used_ babelfish? It translates like a dyslexic 5 year old with poor hygiene. She's gonna fail.

So was she at least cute, or is she just a total loss? ;)

She's a little goth for me. Aparently the teacher "likes her" though. Whatever that means. She thinks she can get away with it.
