Getting to Know Greg
First he sent me a site where you can translate anything into Valley Girl language. (Or Swedish Chef, or Buckwheat, for that matter.) I mean, like seriously, isn't the Valley Girl thingie, like, dude, two decades passe?
But anyway, he took one of my blog posts and had it translated and emailed it to me. Very funny, Greg. No, really! Oh My Gawd!
Try it for yourself.
The yesterday he sent me this gem:

What does this tell you about Greg?
He likes language. playing with it, manipulating it. Is it any wonder he's the script-king?
There you go, a little analysis free of charge.
