Mafalda


Mih brought me two Mafalda books from Argentina. The cover of one of them is featured in this picture. Mafalda is a very very smart little girl, who's quite mature for her age and very much concerned with the future of mankind and world peace.


So far, my favorite episodes are:


Mafalda wakes up and goes to her mother:

"Good morning, mom, do you know if they have destroyed all the nuclear weapons already?"

"I don't know, sweetie, but I doubt it", says the mother. "Why?"

"Oh... nothing", says Mafalda.

And going back to her room, she thinks: It would be nice, for a change, to know that one's life depends entirely upon oneself..."


Check out some Mafalda cartoons in Spanish here.

Nunca me ha parecido demasiado graciosa Mafalda, a pesar de lo cual por alguna razón terminé comprándome hace algunos años un calendario sobre ella.

Sí debo decir que un calendario de Mafalda es más interesante que uno de Bushismos.

Y por qué has escrito antes la traducción al inglés que al rumano? Tu blog rumano sigue estando en "Equilibrio".

Mafalda no es graciosa... es... no se como es. Es bittersweet y algo anticuada... me recuerda las noticias de los periodicos de mi infancia (pocos y malos como eran), cuando yo apenas sabia leer y todo lo que habia en los dos periodicos que editaba el Partido, ademas de paginas y paginas sobre el presidente Ceauescu, eran noticias sobre el hambre mundial [culpa de los capitalistas, claro], sobre el armamento nuclear, el desarme y la lucha por la paz.

Mafalda me recuerda esos tiempos.

en cuanto a lo de escribir antes la traduccion que el blog, nada de eso

es cosa de como se actualizan los feeds - pq lo que ves de mi otro blog es un enlace tipo feed
