polyglot



About the quote:
The picture was drawn on the subway (hence the jerky lines) and I was trying to adapt it for this weeks IF theme which is "geeky".

I have this font that looks like ink blots and added that since I was torn between the concepts of intellectual geek vs. bite the heads off chicken geek. So while I was figuring out what she might be saying as either of the above, I used the inkblot font as a place holder for compositional purposes.
But as soon as I used the blotfont it looked so right that I couldn't change it and the girl became a member of the intelligencia speaking some form of impenetrable intellectual geeksprach.

And that in turn got me thinking of an email that I sent to a friend who had asked if my wife would be coming to her party.

I replied:
"I don't know if she will be coming and all attempts to get an answer have been met by inconclusive or ambiguous answers. Once she answered me in an extinct language. I rushed to get my proto Indo-European dictionary but by the time I got back she was speaking in Basque. We will just have to wait and see."

And that got me thinking of polyglot.

I sometimes type in odd combinations of words into google to find an appropriate quote for an image.

So on this occasion I googled polyglot cheesecake.

And the result was this quote from someone writing on an Anime forum.
There is no way I could think up something this delicious, this perfect.

I'm a peaceful person, but even I want to slap her and tell her to shut up. My husband would say "Excuse me, but I didn't go to EVERYTHING school!"
Love the brown bag drawing.

Delightful! My husband and children often answer me that way as well. I wonder did I miss a meeting? Sorry to be gone so long.
