MollyGoLightly I like the Russian language because there are no helping verbs.

The lady who was my russian language instructor thought it was really funny to get me to say things in russian to random people on the ukranian trolley.
After I said "hello" or whatever she would ask them how my pronounciation was, and they would shake their heads grimly.

ichigo i used to study russian. i did it for two difficult years. now i've gone two years without and have forgotten so much. however, my ukrainian neighbour still thinks that i am the only one who properly understands her thickly accented english. she looks to me to translate phrases she doesn't understand. sadly, i can only translate them into simple english, not russian, not anymore. it doesn't seem to matter to her. i'm still her favourite translator. 010714

Norm Once when I was drunk my freind gave me water and told me it was 40% booze called Russian Clearwater. I didn't believe him but I didn't care I just wanted to get more drunk. I drank like 10 glasses and the only thing it did to me was make me piss more. 010826

minnesota_chris I loved you once: perhaps that love has yet
To die down thoroughly within my soul;
But let it not dismay you any longer;
I have no wish to cause you any sorrow.
I loved you wordlessly, without a hope,
By shyness tortured, or by jealousy.
I loved you with such tenderness and candor
And pray God grants you to be loved that way again.

-- A. S. Pushkin
