I should be on the phones again—regularly talking—in a month, expect more articulacy then
19th of July, 2006 POST·MERIDIEM 08:51
Things I’ve learned over the last few days:
- If someone talking German mentions your [xɛndɪ] repeatedly, they’re talking about your mobile,
and they’re probably Russian.
- Ben Wing makes stupid mistakes
- Despite dressing not remotely Gothic, I am not un-Gothic enough to be
turned away from a Goth club. Damnit, that was a waste of time, I should
have stayed in Saturday evening.
- Joachim Fest writes really really well, and I need to read more
erudite people in German, rather than technical-oriented people.
Word of the day: Поезд is Tajik for “train,” I
imagine from Russian.
