Language abuse [Nov. 13th, 2006|07:34 pm]

I love seeing words like юзерпик.

In retrospect, maybe it's my fault and I should've gone with "avatar" instead of "userpic".

Re: eh?

You know those Sesame Street character(s) that read words slowly, then faster and faster until it was fast enough to understand it as a word?

That's me reading Russian.

So I'm sounding it out all slowly, and then I think of Elmo or whoever saying "you-zzerr-p-ee-ck. userpic. userpic! userpic! userpic!".

Re: eh?

I totally know what you're talking about. That's me reading Hebrew.
