How odd . . .

I'm off to a workshop on translational research, and I haven't the brain power left to write something quasi-interesting this week. As I wrack the inside of my skull for said interesting things, this keeps coming up:

Japanese Bookweb Link

Seeing that really threw me for a loop, but I have to say I also find it extremely cool, even if I can't read it.

Speaking of strange things, I leave you with a cartoon I drew when I was in high school. It originally appeared in ETC Magazine, which was published by one of the school's English teachers. Yes, I was just learning French. That's why the grammar is most likely horrifying. Gives you an insight into my mental state as a teenager, doesn't it?

Hey, were you suggesting that French Canadians are crazy drivers?...(I'm from Quebec, and I could tell you a few good stories about driving in Quebec...:~<> Great drawings, Jen! Check out my SF Girl comic on my website (I can't claim youth for those, though... :-D

Marcel is fine! He's the little guy with the big eyes in the last frame. Not to worry, TurtlePower. And if French Canadians are crazy drivers, I think they can't possibly be worse than Sino-Teutonic Canadians. But actually, I didn't have my license when I drew that, so I really had no concept of driving then.

A Sino-Teutonic Canadian showed me how to drive once :)

(oh wait, I still don't have my drivers license!!)
