You can laugh all you want to, but I learn all kinds of interesting things from Facebook. For instance, did you know that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is very popular in Poland?
I found that Access Atlanta already did a story on this phenomena.
Since I've never watched the show, I found this particularly interesting: "The challenge, the story notes, is how to translate a show that is already subtitled for Americans who aren't used to their heavy Southern accents."
I have no intention of watching the show, but I watched this clip of the mother and Honey Boo Boo on Jimmy Kimmel's show. I am flabbergasted that there are people who couldn't understand their accents. Subtitles?? Really?? I guess if there were outsiders at one of my family reunions they would need a translator.
There's a job for my son. He is brilliant at understanding southern, and he speaks with almost no accent. I always say my poor kids had to not only learn English, they had to learn Southern English.
Bruce left yesterday. He was getting restless. I am fully functional, and feeling better, although not 100%.
I've spent a lot of time the last few days reading, writing, and even watching TV - mostly HGTV and the Travel Channel. Those are my fave channels.
Recuperation means very little blog-worthy material, though.
Here's hoping June will be a better month than May was, for me at least. The forecast is good. I have tomatoes on the vine getting ripe! Woo hoo!
Oh, and NONE of us talk like Honey Boo Boo!!
