2005.1001.0010::Weekend planning
[ | | ]
As previously stated, I had plans to see Serenity tonight, and it was good.

If anyone in the Atlanta area is interested in joining to see Mirrormask, Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean's new film, I'm planning to see it Saturday night at 9:30 at the MAC. Leave a comment if you want to meet up.

And I'm planning to see Serenity again on Sunday. Speak up if you want in.

[User Picture]Sounds good.

The phrase is kind of awkward to translate into Chinese (especially with my limited ability in the language), but I'll do my best:

Oh: I can't really find a character for "Oh," which I would say "Whah!" Imagine Keanu Reaves saying a drawn-out "Whoa" but with the a vowel instead, and you got the general pronunciation.

My: "My" is a combination of two words, the all-purpose, first-Person pronoun "Wo" (pronounced somewhere between "Wuh" and "Wo") and the article "De" (pronounced like a really short "Duh").

Wo http://zhongwen.com/d/167/x218.htm
De http://zhongwen.com/d/170/x186.htm

Joss: This is a weird one. I'm not sure if I'm correct at all, but a long time ago, someone told me that this character is sometimes pronounced "Joss." It means luck/fortune. The person who told me that may be mistaken, and you should take my opinion with a grain of salt, too; because my parents like to label me as a "wai guo ren" (meaning "foreigner" a.k.a. not Chinese).

Fu http://zhongwen.com/d/186/x214.htm

It's: This is basically the verb "to be." The "it" is implied.

Si http://zhongwen.com/d/172/x79.htm

God: I'm not sure about this one--I looked it up on http://zhongwen.com/, and there were two potential characters for it. I recognized that this one is a combination of two characters for "person" and "mountain," so based on my limited knowledge of these combination choices, it indicates some persona/personification/entity. Of course, I could have just stumbled upon the Chinese Character for "CROM"--like I said, I is a foreigner.

[User Picture]Actually, "God" with a big G is ShangDi:
Shang http://zhongwen.com/d/164/x87.htm (You'll see both characters together in the list of words which use the character).

I believe, although I couldn't hear it well enough, that River actually says "Shang Di" in the scene on Miranda.

[User Picture]Mirrormask tonight - maybe.

Serenity tomorrow - depends what time. I have a baby shower from 2-3:30ish.

Happy football goodness :)
