I decided to take a couple computer-free days this weekend after spending (what felt like) all eternity working at my computer last week. Unfortunately, I belatedly realised – once my computer was in the city and I was in the country – that this also meant no blog posts.
Anyway, this week is brought to you (again) by the German language, that purveyor of endlessly entertaining words. It’s also a word that is uniquely suited to Germany (and Austria), as well as the city of Montreal. Don’t anyone pretend like they haven’t gotten lost driving in/around/through Montreal. Just proximity to that city causes roads to inexplicably transcend time and space.
Schilderwald: (noun, German) when a street is so full of roadsigns that you get lost.
