He means "relax-ed"
With three syllables, not two.
I like you, haiku.

What I feel like when receiving a tough project Sep 5, 2013

Right words are sleeping furiously in diagonal blue.
My mind is wandering in liquidity.
Time is passing by in ferocious velocity.

What apostrophe?

(It has a no link to translation, although it has one to general linguistics) I thought it was funny nonetheless.

I love this one -- shouldn't it be: "What's apostrophe", though?
