Oh boy I love these pinyin guessing games? Who can guess what this says:

FOB, go back to sleep. You obviously suffering from a bad hangover.
@FOB ...its a no-brainer .....btw how have u been mate ? I haven't seen u around lately
Don't be too amazed. Caterina. There's a special function of MS word doc, which is marking pinyin (tones included) on Chinese characters. Easy stuff!
@Cipherie - I aim to always be suffering from a bad hangover. This morning it's a translation hangover. WLIB, by the way, only tends to make hangovers worse. I'm a little into sadomasochism like that.
@Jigga - Yeah, it's not hard for you, but I'm counting on a certain marketer for a much more oblivious reply than those of us on the 3-digit side of the IQ scale are capable of. If said sub-50%er can even piece it together.
Been good, I've been a little more IRL than online lately. Nice to know I'm still remembered. How've you been?
@Caterina - MS word has a feature, so does Google Translate, so do a lot of other tools. But obviously I typed them out in raw unicode, because I'm awesome. I didn't even study it, I just knew somehow.
