マリー、さようなら (Goodbye, Marie!)


 このブログのサイドコラムに、昨日までブログペットの子犬、マリーが住んでいた。私の記事から学んだ言葉をつなぎ合わせて、ユーモラスなおしゃべりをしたり、時には俳句を詠んだりして、楽しませてくれた。ブログペットのプロバイダーがそのサービスの提供を昨日限りで止めることになり、マリーは去って行った。マリー、さようなら。

In the side column of this blog, a "blog puppy," Marie, lived until yesterday. Piecing the words learned from my blog posts together, Marie humorously chattered and sometimes made haiku to let us feel pleasant. However, the provider of the blog pet ended this service yesterday, and Marie went away. Goodbye, Marie!

サービスが終了してしまって残念です。私もMiaとお別れしてしまいました。Marieちゃんは本当にいろんな言葉を上手に組み合わせていい子でしたね。

Mia ちゃんも可愛い子でした。エコー時代の Suzu-pon さんのスェーデン語のブログに、Mia ちゃんのために日本語の一言説明が書いてありましたね。私にもそれが役立ちました。ミクシィに移られてからは、ご無沙汰がちで、Mia ちゃんと遊んだ記憶がありません。気の毒なことでした。
