Creepy Indian Yearbooks

August 18th, 2007

Take a look at this page, scanned from an Indian High School’s Yearbook at which one of the Coady participants is a vice-principal:

cryptkeeperindia.jpg

They keep one of their school’s founders preserved in a glass box and have memorial services for him every year. What’s more, the page is all colourful and pretty as if they’re celebrating his death, and they’ve got crypt-keeper blood drip font for the words… and this is in the year book for elementary aged kids! It must be something cultural.

My life is crazy busy right now, but it’s interesting, so I don’t mind. Yesterday I had phone call in french with a director of a national NGO in Niger to question him about financial reports he sent us. It was an interesting experience. I speak mangled Acadian Franglais, he speaks an African dialect of french. He was talking on his cellphone, which kept crackling up. I wasn’t familiar with the many of the French financial terms, so I had to sort of write down what I thought he was saying and look it up in google translate and then explain what I thought he was telling me to the woman in the office who is writing the report about their organization. The funny thing was, I think the guy could speak perfect English - when I was trying to translate the name of a type of bank, he told me the name in English - with a perfect accent. But he refused to talk to us in English. Even when the woman who is writing the report, who speaks Spanish but not French, called him previously, he would listen to her and try to understand if she spoke Spanish to him, but not if she started speaking English.

In addition to acting as a translator to a Nigerien, in the past week I’ve interviewed people from Zambia, Thailand, Sierra Leone, and the Philippines. I’ve had an Indian woman home for dinner. I’ve had lunch with Palestinian teenagers and had meetings about web design with the son of an Israeli diplomat. I’ve got my first freelance web design commission - $500 to put together the Peace Camp Nova Scotia website by the end of the week.

That’s on top of my regular tasks at the Coady, putting together my last issue of the Community Science Journal and packing my bags for university.

How Geeky Are You?

I know, this is the second post of the week that has come from a service like blogthings. It’s all because of reading my friend Joi’s livejournal. I’m addicted.
This does sort of prove a point. There are a lot of geeks in my dorm, but not the same sort of geeks as me. They’re Movie and Gaming geeks, whereas I am a sci-fi geek.
On another note, I can hear screaming from accross the street, or maybe it’s from the room above me. Strange.

Is it Superman? No!

August 31st, 2006

It’s SuperMark!

supermark.jpg



Last night there was a party at my house. Unbeknownst to many of the guests including Mark, part of the purpose of the party was to crown a new super hero. Mark’s a really great friend. He’s always looking out for other people so we wanted to show our appreciation. He loves childish stuff like the Muppets and Sesame Street, so we decided to give in a costume like Super Grover.

This is the last time that we’ll all be together until Christmas. Andrew’s going to Queens on Friday, Robert’s going to Acadia on the same day I leave for Dalhousie, and the rest of the people in this photo are going to St. FX. The other people, like Papa and Laird who are going to school outside of Antigonish have already left. The Class of ‘06 has broken up, and that is both a good thing and a bad thing.
So what’s your power, Super Mark?
