oh brilliant

July 9th, 2007

And funnily enough, trying to find any information about the part of Shanxi lzh’s family originally came from yields a shitload of articles about a certain recent slavery scandal.

Still, I’ve found enough that I can tell her there’s a chance she’s descended from Xiongnu royalty. Or nobility, at least.

Actually, I’m just glad I can get back to my blog. I was locked out for most of the afternoon. Not even proxies could get through, suggesting it wasn’t one of Nanny’s fits but some technical hitch on the Aotearoa end.

    Time to start saying, “ã?¯ã?ƒ,太太樣” and kowtowing. And no more of this casual lzh stuff. That’s Princess lzh to you. Or perhaps Duchess lzh when you know for certain.

    I wondered what’d happened to the blog earlier. I thought it was probably a temporary service failure. Not the first time that’s happened.

    What is that Japanese you’ve written? No way, that kind of language would get me killed. I did call her 匈奴公主 a couple of times last night, that’s as far as it’s going. Besides, I’m no great fan of royalty, she’s a Communist Party member, so if any titles are going to be used in this house, it’ll be ‘Comrade’.

    Yes, tone of voice does not carry through text. I wasn’t actually asking for the romaji, but now that I have it, I now know how you expect me to get me killed by my Xiongnu princess. Origato gozaimasu, John sensei.
