My Hobby
















My hobby if I have one at all is learning and forgetting Russian.

I am in a forgetting phase at the moment so it is a delight to find this at Neeka's Backlog - her two year old daughter called Marta who speaks Russian rather less well than I do. Only just, though.

Marta, what day is your birthday?
Saturday.
Right! And how many years old will you be?
Saturday.

The correct answer here is "dva", two. She gets there on the third try.

You should post on here how to count to ten in Russian, then I will be able to count to ten in 5 languages. I could get a job with the international space agency doing launch countdowns.

Answer in next post... dicker with your X-Box a bit, do some gubbins about launch keys (launch keys set? launch keys set! etc) and orft one jolly well goes.
