So, I was reading different editions of Wikinews, and in a French article about the Russian elections I noticed that the bloke we anglophones refer to as "Vladimir Putin" has his surname spelled in French as "Poutine". I found this a bit odd, as Poutine is a Québecois staple food based on french fries, curds, and gravy. I looked up its etymology, which seems to be obscure but one guy claiming to have invented the dish said of it that it looked like "une maudite poutine", meaning "a damned mess" (Wikipedia translated it, "a hell of a mess", but I don't agree with that.)

I thought it would be hilarious if l'Academie Française made a scathing political commentary on how to translate Putin's name from the Cyrillic alphabet, but I asked my Russian/Georgian friend how the Cyrillic form of his name is pronounced. She said "Poo-teen", which matches the French spelling exactly in terms of phonetics.

Eh, it was a fun thought while it lasted.

poutines are so delicious

my first trip into canada me and my friends got two pizzas and two orders of poutines and the nice french lady was in love with us americans

The french seem to pronounce it more like poo-tin and the people who say it in english say poo-tine. They're good in moderation. It's pretty much one of the most fattening dishes available and that's made even worse by the fact that you can upgrade your meal's fries to a poutine in a lot of restaurants like a&w and kfc.

I had never heard of poutine until almost two years ago. I was a prep cook at a cafe and the manager was a Canadian female, who would, on occasion, have themed parties for the employees where food could be brought in. One day I saw a big bag of fries and cheese curds in the the walk in (we didn't sell either) and thought it strange. Then later, the manager comes up to me and asks if I'd like some, but I thought she said, "Would you like some POONTANG". I have no idea what kind of face I made but, I said "What?!?" Luckily, no weird "Three's Company" misunderstanding happened.

Anyway, yeah, poutine is good stuff.

Oh shit, I was looking through my old email account for a file, and I came across a forward from my father. It was sent to him from the central office of where he works.

Location: Sydney Airport, International Terminal, Gate 8
What I did today: I sat next to a really beautiful woman for two 10 hour long haul flights.
How I made it creepy: I watched her sleep for most of the first flight, & adored her face.
How I live with myself: When I finally spoke to her midway through the second flight, her effortless smile transformed the features I knew so well into a heartstoppingly perfect moment. I gave her my pillow, & said she could lean on my shoulder. She did, but I was too cowardly to speak to her again.

I still miss you, beautiful girl in Seat 48D, Flight QF002. :tear
