Swedish. Organized another Swedish Meetup. I can’t really speak it or understand it, but I can hear the difference between people who speak it well and people who don’t speak it so well. Previously it all sounded the same. It is progress of a not very useful sort.
I’ve written a formal petition to Meetup.com to have them create an Icelandic Language special interest group. If they don’t respond, I’ll start a letter writing campaign. If they are going to have useless groups like the “Bjork” and “Sigur Ros” groups, they can certainly add the more useful “Icelandic Language” group. I mean, how many times can you meet to discuss Bjork and Sigur Ros?
Russian. I went to Brickskillers for the Russian conversational event. It is also an excuse for drinking cheap Viking bear. It is so frustrating to have invested so many hours into studying a language and to still sound like a brain damaged monkey. The jet lag isn’t helping.
Work. Work continues to be surreal and Kafkaesque. I forgot my security tag at home, didn’t realize it until I was half way to the office, went back to retrieve it, went to work…retrieved my calendar that I left at my other office at the end of the day…I have spent the whole @#$@% day commuting. I’m seriously considering doing a job search.
Fuzzy Mind. And at about 4:00 every day, my mind goes to sleep.
