translations, please! [Jul. 23rd, 2009|08:31 am]

[mood |happyhappy]

iris: “ploot!” “i just plooted.” “you did a ploot!”

(ploot is an onomatopoeic word for passing gas; this was superseded by ’scuse, as “in i just ’scused!”, and more recently by fart)

iris: “soof! hahahaha!” “i did a soof on the couch.”

(soof is an onomatopoeic word for jumping onto something or someone)

iris: “would you like some linten?“ ”have some linten, ok?” “yum! that was good linten!”

(linten is an imaginary delicacy)

iris: “’s ok! ’s ok! ’s ok!”

(said while she’s doing something she suspects we don’t like, or when someone is unhappy with something she’s done)

iris: “can you bounce me up and down with my ribs?”

(she’s asking to be tossed up in the air and caught. “ribs” is where she’d like you to hold her just before she’s airborne, and how she’d like to be caught afterward. in practice, catching an inch or two of air is completely sufficient for her and causes gleeful laughter.)

iris: “what did i say? what did i say?”

(why she says this is unclear, but it might just be an attempt to start a conversation.)

iris: “i ’n know” (sounds a lot like “i know”)

(means ”i don’t know” and is a generic response to all sorts of questions, including many to which she does know the answer. getting a real answer often requires deviously asking whether the answer is something ridiculous so that she will disagree and include the right answer in her disagreeing statement.)

also, she and Z (jilflirt’s son) played really well together for the first time yesterday, and it was lovely to see.

It was pretty impressive yesterday. Z and sbtorpey played together for a while today as well, so it seems like Z is in a sociable mood.

Love the translations!

Watching them play was so nice, and listening to them talk to each other was even better.
