Czech Language, France, and Other Funny Stuff
I was just tipped off about this interesting forum of Czech-language-related stuff at LiveJournal. The community forum is named pojďme, or roughly "Let's Go!" or "Come On!" It carries the humorous English name, "Come, Murder the Czech Language With Us." If you like Czech, there are lots of interesting things there, both in Czech and English. I haven't seen much Czech stuff on blogger, so had no idea there was such an eclectic group.
I've recently been reading a "musicologist-related" blog. Check out Amy (and Colin) Roust's blog, J'habite à Paris!, about Paris and life in France. I've enjoyed Amy's posts on odd signs, including flaming wheelchairs at the Georges Pompidou Center.
And in order to lighten things up - as if anyone didn't need a good laugh on the days before the thirty-seventh anniversary of Jan Palach's self-immolation - have a look at Laura Swisher's blog. An oddly appropriate (to the anniversary) post discusses laughter. Karla's post on Bisexual Barbie clued me in. SAC (if she's ever reading this) might appreciate this.
