It seems that often Rash"i needs to explain a word in another language, he says *blahs" afterwards. An example:

Rashi on Genesis 1:2:

תהו אשטורדי"שון בְּלַעַ"ז:

תהו is estordison - Blahs.

Why does Rash"i seem so bored when he does that?

    Why does he seem bored when he does that? Because that's how you're interpreting "blahs", I guess. – msh210 Mar 17 '16 at 20:36

Rashi was enlisted by King John the Posthumous (Don't trust Wikipedia's chronology) on Tisha B'av, 1025, to keep Old French alive. This mundane task led him to extreme boredom, and even more so, took away his time from Torah writings. As such, many things were left tragically unexplained and lost to Klal Yisrael. It is in this vein that we learn that one of Tisha B'Av's tragedies is:

שרף אפוסטומוס את התורה

(King John the) Posthumous burnt (ie. destroyed) the Torah.
