Elly ain't going down without a fight, is she? It's obvious that her latest journal entry was "Make sure that 'Magicks for Smart Teens whose Mothers might be up to no good.' is NOT in the Occult section of the library." That being said, it might be that she'd have forgotten to get rid of "Magie pendant les années de l'adolescence futées dont les mères pourraient être jusqu'à aucun bon".

Heh--you're right, it'd be just like Elly to forget the French editions. :)

Oooh maybe Thérèse can dig that one up :)

Elly should also look out for "La magia para la Adolescencia Inteligente cuyas madres pueden estar a la altura de la travesura". After all, you never know when Luis might show up.

She really wouldn't know where the Portuguese version is. Particularly if the translator's named Paolo.

April Patterson said...

anadandy, I'm afraid Thérèse has also been sucked back to 1979/1980, too. But precocious Françoise could help. :)

dlauthor, I wonder if she even knows Portuguese exists. ;)

I'm reminded of this comment made by a reality show contestant in the UK:

"Do they speak Portuganese in Portugal? I thought Portugal was in Spain"

I could imagine something similar from LJ: "They speak Portuguese in Brazil? But that's nowhere near Portugal! It's much closer to Mexico."

Uh-oh, forworse, maybe all that hinting about what her next big thing is--is her sneaky way of alluding to plans to be on Big Brother, make stupid comments about Brazil and Portuguese, and then parlay that into the next fame-whore phase of her "career." 0_o

She does actually fit the profile of the kind of people who turn up on "Celebrity" Big Brother: someone whose name is vaguely familiar, someone desperate for any publicity, someone bringing with them a fan following who hang on their every word and someone who can be counted on to make stupid comments and not understand that the other housemates aren't imprsesed.

Uh-oh, forworse, that profile does fit Lynn perfectly. ::becomes frightened::
