Language Week 2

A repeat of Language Week has been requested and shall be granted. Yes, I know it happened in June last year, but I'm in charge and I say it happens in August this year. Ah, power! So I bring you:

LANGUAGE WEEK 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO August 30 - September 5, 2004

Here be ze rhools:

  • Blog in a language that you don't usually blog in. You don't have to blog a lot if you don't want to - a few sentences will do, as long as you continue, once a day, through the week (or at least Monday to Friday). What the hell. If you only want to blog in Swedish on Tuesday, go for it. You can blog in one foreign language for five days, you can blog in five different languages or you can find some medium between the two.
  • It would be nice, but not necessary, to include some kind of translation into your usual language. I usually do mine in <span title="translation"><i>other language</i></span> tags. You might choose to write it all out and translate at the end. You could hide it in the post's extension. Whatever. Be free! Be wild!
  • You can link back to this post if you want. Or not. If you don't want. There is a new icon this year, or you can use last year's old crappy MS-Paint-produced one if you'd rather.
  • If you're participating, please leave a comment or a trackback and let me know. This way you can all read each other's and be inspired when you can't think of anything to say* and you can make new blogging friends and we'll all live happily ever after.

    Yay for LW04! I was wondering if there'd be one, but I wasn't rebelious enough to do it on my own, tsk tsk.

    I'm doing it. Well, sort of. I've been distracted lately, so I'm cheating and keeping the dates from when I originally started the drafts. It's not like anyone can tell two months from now... Aherm.

    Things and stuff.
