Standing in the middle of the room
April 21st, 2005

I was standing at a central point in the room. The walls were all at approximately the same distance from me. I continued to stand there for a few moments.

That entry-in its painful recounting of life’s minutiae-comes from a post on “the dullest blog in the world” by Dave Walker. Walker’s blog recently landed the top spot on the “Top 11 Lamest Blogs” list in PC World. Check out the “dullest blog” and the others that made the list here!

    Great! Twitter comes to blogs. There’s actually a template for WordPress blogs like ours that’s set up like a Twitter site for multiple members to talk about meaningless things…maybe we could do that in Found in Translation, but just in other languages!

    Actually that might be a good language learning tool–how do you say “I was standing at a central point in the room” in Hindi?

    In Japanese I think it’s 私は部屋の中心に近い位置に立っていました。(Watashi wa heya no chuushin ni chikai ichi ni tatte imashita)

    In Bengali it would be “Ami ghorher majhkhaane darhiye chhilam” (Don’t know how to locate a Bangla font thingy yet).

    In Hindi, मैं कमरे के बीच में खड़ी थी। or “मैं कमरे के बीच में खड़ा था।” (depending on the center-point-of-the-room stander’s gender, (Main kamre ke beech mein khadi/a thi/tha)

    Warning: they don’t exactly mean “center point,” more like “middle of”…which isn’t EXACTLY the same thing, right?

    You mean what we do here ISN’T meaningless? 🙂
