Outline: Deconstructing Andersen

Cyanide and Happiness, a daily webcomic
Cyanide & Happiness @ Explosm.net

I wish I could spend the weekend sleeping, reading, and watching movies.

More adventures in class with Sou

*Amethyst hasn’t slept for more than twenty four hours and has been working her behind off to get things in before deadlines. Class is extremely boring.*

Sou: Amethyst?

Amethyst: Hmm? Hmm? What?

Sou *staring at Amethyst*: You look like you fell asleep.

Amethyst: I did… with my eyes open.

Sou: Did you know that Khaldeya have big ants? Which means they have bigger asses, and you can see them!

Amethyst: I don’t want to know.

*The example being discussed in class for analyzing felicity conditions is “There is an ant coming towards you.”*

Sou: If an ant was coming towards me, I’d be like: “Hello, what color is your thong today?”

Amethyst: LOL!

What is the Kuwaiti equivalent of the word cute?

    Amethyst, they think ants’ arses are taking it too far; I don’t think they’ll cope very well with the other things we talk about. :p

  39. 39 N.

    The khaldiya have had contact with some chemical in the science dpt, and have been modified using bioengineering from the engineering dept =p

    Things appear in an all new light now!

    Cute is like “nice”, it is too generic to have an Arabic meaning. Our knowledge of Arabic is just lacking and I’m sure we could find more descriptive words that fit the meaning of cute better.

    (hmm rereading what I wrote, did I just say we don’t know the Arabic word for cute but in a complex way? :p)

  40. 40 Amethyst

    Lol, very possible;p

    Hehe, yeah, you did.. But that’s just cute;)

  41. 41 Lone Ranger'ess

    cute is cute, but if necessary then i’d go with mamloo7, only cuz jameel is for pretty..

    and “mdalgum” means a bit chubby..

    hope ur feeling better;)

  42. 42 Amethyst

    Lone Ranger’ess
    Cute is cute, and jameel is hot to me;p

    I’m feeling better:)
