Been listening to Refuse to Choose by Sher, about us scanners, thanks to forum-friend Jeff! Yep, me to a tee. Wonderful to finally know I'm normal.

Lots of Pola-retradio, not much reading. Well, not Esperanto reading. Lots of LeCarre and George Smiley. Such good writing.

Have also gotten into French music. Not sure what to call the genre. French alternative? French pop? Artists like Camp Claude, Juniore, La Femme, The Liminanas, Lescop. Love it. Someday maybe, French. Who knows.

Leaving here in 5 days. Can't wait to be home.

Should have mentioned Coptic, too. Started the Coptic course at Glyphstudy a year ago, and up until January kept it up, even during this deployment. But with the Russian DLI course in January, DLPT and OPI in Feb, and now the German course coming next month, I've had to drop it. No way I can keep it up. It was planned to take 3 years after all. :o

I love the Glyphstudy format, and will probably stupidly sign up for something else again in the future.

Today did some Pola Retradio where they talked about the rover we've got on Mars now. Also listened to an unknown number of hours of French music. Jeez, what is it about those groups that's so appealing? :lol:
