XBox Me

Hoo, boy

So, this whole pesky thesis thing I'm working on. I'm translating a short play from Spanish into English, right? An obscure play, at that - one that's rarely performed, and certainly never been translated before. Right?

Not so much.

The discovery of this other translation throws a huge honkin' wrench in my thesis plans. You see, now I have to compare this other translation to mine, noting what was changed in each translation, deciding which is more effective and why...basically, writing one of those compare-contrast papers they teach in middle and high school English classes. I always hated those papers. Now, at least part of my thesis will become one of those papers.
