12 December

Finals are over, and it’s time to celebrate by manically trying to finish all Afrikaans translations in less than two days.  I’m seven hours deep and may soon need inspiration in the form of a loquacious war cry:

Tweedehandsemotorverkoopsmannevakbondstakingsvergaderingsameroeperstoe spraakskrywerspersverklaringuitreikingsmediakonferensieaankondiging.

Apparently ’tis the longest word in Afrikaans.  Its meaning is so dull that everyone gets to create his own elucidation of it.

Today's discovery: a photostat machine, or, how the SA government copied every unimportant passport letter ever.
