the stranger

aujourd'hui, lappy est morte. :(

this was the first line of the stranger by albert camus. sort of. you see, m. camus was not actually speaking of his laptop in his first line. (in case you do not know, lappy is colloquial for laptop.) he was speaking of the main character's mother, which is maman in french. thus, the line was really - aujourd'hui, maman est morte. and by the way, there was no sad face either. i'm actually just really ripping off albert camus and hoping he does not respond to me with fire and holy water for daring to profane his work.

so let me dignify this post by disclosing the proper english translation of the opening sentence: today, mother died.

and, i'm hoping lappy hasn't died really. just in comatose. crossing my fingers.
