Did Not Converge After 7 iterations, and is becoming less and less amusing, and more and more incoherent. At least “Make your time” translates perfectly.

As an extra treat for my readers, I think I’m finally bored of this so we’ll be returning to our usual programming.

Thank you for your patience.

Converged.

I really wish there was a French/Russian translation. This nonsense of shells turning into various types of crockery is boring. I wanted guns to turn into all manner of carnage. Ah well. Back to work then.

Today’s edition is somewhat more amusing than the French one, considering the English/Russian Russian/English translators are still in BETA.

Sally sells seashells on the seashore. The shells she sells are seashore shells.

Салли продает Дек.раковины на берегу моря. Орудий она продает побережья являются морские раковины.

It seems that in America, Sally sells seashells; but in Soviet Russia, shells sell guns.

Tammy’s Wedding

I haven’t seen Tammy for ages. Distances separate us, and neither of us seem to try hard enough to bridge those gaps. She did invite me to her wedding though, but it’s telling that I hadn’t met the groom until the big day — 10 March, 2007.

Tammy looked exceptional, as brides generally do. It’s something about the whole energy of the event of a wedding. People are happy and excited and thrilled for the couple, and they just soak up all that positive energy and radiate it back out at everyone.

Tammy and Nic leaving the church

Tammy lives in Polokwane, in the Limpopo Province. I’m not entirely sure I’ve been to Limpopo before, but I really think I should’ve made an effort to get there before. It really is beautiful.

Limpopo had this whole marketing thing going down in Gauteng about “Limpopo — Africa’s Eden.” Sounds like the usual exaggerated marketing in your pants. Well, where we went for the wedding and reception, it seemed a reasonable assessment of the situation.

Africa’s Eden

Of course, the thing about a wedding is that you never really get an opportunity to speak at much length with the bride and groom. Things were no different in this case.

The cool thing was that a bunch of people who I knew from university travelled up from Cape Town for the wedding. Did some catching up with the UCT, predominantly chemical engineering, crowd.

Surprising things were discovered — Lisa is married. Sam is in a serious (I think) relationship he didn’t appear to be in the last time I saw him (which was quite a while back when I was torturing myself with post-graduate studies). Mareike is back in the country!

Egads!

Everyone — except MareikeAngie and Mareike

If only the first picture had Mareike in it! I really need to try to be a little less adverse to orchestrating the occasional posed, group photograph.

Sad

I have a happy exciting post to put up about Tammy’s wedding, but I think the bad news should come first, even though we found out about it second.

Angie’s granny (her father’s mother) suffered a stroke and was hospitalised on Sunday night.

Understandably, Angie is quite distressed about it. I’m trying to keep her from getting completely depressed. She’s doing okayish. She could be better, but she really could be a lot worse.

My information on Granny’s status is a little vague, so what I say here might be a little inaccurate. She has been moved from the high-intensive-care wards to the less-serious-but-not-good-condition wards. Indications at this point are that she’s probably going to get through this, but isn’t going to fully recover. She’s probably going to need a full-time nurse from now on.

I must reiterate that the details I have are a little fuzzy, and I haven’t been to visit her so all my info is 2nd hand. If you happen to be family, rather speak to Bill or Angie for more accurate information.

Here’s my wish for the best outcome for Angie’s granny — a proud and independent woman.
