I love reading elysesewell. Yes, THAT Elyse Sewell.

Hope you all have a loverly Valentine's Day, if'n you're so inclined. I shall be going to bed alone, waking up alone, heading to work - alone - before heading home (presumably) alone, and falling asleep alone.

It's not so bad, actually.

I seem to block holidays like this out of my head, so I am always surprised when people present me with gifts. My brother gave me the Final Fantasy X-2 Collection - I'm quite excited to hear it in its horridness >:)

Hanging out in the Tchita Uplands in XII, reading Terry Brooks' Running with the Demon, and craving beer.

Not all at once, mind you.

I also had a death wish for sushi tonight. Sushi needed to die, you see, by diving into my mouth and resting (for a bit) in my tummach.

Instead I had Maple flavored Malt-o-Meal. SO not the same.

I want to teach myself to read and speak Russian.

Why Russian?

I think it's probably the hardest language to learn.

I mean, from what I hear. seems like a strange thing to pick on a lark.

So much of it is in the area. I glanced at certain sites and it seems like something even as simple as the alphabet would be extremely trying.

I then thought about French.

I then thought about Spanish - I even have books around the house for that.

I then remembered that I have software to teach me sign language.

I then thought about - and dismissed - German, as much as I loved it in school and as much FUN the language is (die lange schlange!) I would probably NEVER be able to use it.

Then thought Japanese, but I've heard the dialect is beyond bizarre and hard to get down... but I could watch anime!

German is *so* much fun. I took a few terms, a few years ago. I'd like to do it again, 'cause there's so much great German literature I want to read in the original.

I guess the same can be said for russian, though.

if you learned japanese, the world would spontaneously be forced to give you a crown as queen of the nerds.

just sayin'.

I've done that a few times!! I never got why people cannot handle eating at restaurants alone - I do it all the time. I feel weird going to movies alone, but I think that's more because I'm so used to doing it as a social thing that it's weird to have no one around.

You, me, and another lj friend janhatesmarcia are over there reading Elyse's adventures! I think she is the most adorable and funny person.

She was totally my favorite on that cycle.

Go us!

She was my absolute fave, too - she had brains! I usually seem to love the girls with the boyish haircuts each cycle, though.

I also love that we know enough to call them "cycles" instead of "seasons".

NERDS.

Well, if you get bored being alone tonight maybe we can play Horde before my canceled subscription runs out. Or...you can go back and respond to comments from 2 years ago and I can respond to your response. Oh it shall be a happy bleeding heart day!
