My dying brain.
I used to be a perfect writer. My grammar was beyond reproach, my spelling won me the respect of my teachers well into high school.
Things I have misspelled today:
And those are only the ones I've caught. God knows what I wrote incorrectly during my Russian lesson while I was having things dictated to me.
Oh yeah, and I got raped by the entire Russian language. I kid you not. It shoved me up against a wall and violated me until I passed out bleeding on the ground. Somehow this all happened in a genteel little cafe with artsy professor types all around me. I think I need to get a different tutor than Alla the One-Eyed. Someone who, when I ask how to use a case, doesn't respond, "Oh, don't worry... You just have to know when to use it. You'll figure it out eventually." I start lessons with the minirussian tomorrow and hopefully he will actually know his shit and I will be able to govorio the porusski. Hopefully he will also not lunge. I don't think he will, though, despite my former dire predictions. I think he's attracted or something, but I believes he realises the impropriety of the situation. Gak.
Mmmmm sleep time now. Hopefully no scary dreams about Mick Jagger or tsunamis.
