Language Problems, Language Fun [Dec. 4th, 2005|10:34 am]

Language is a kind of puzzle. I am trying to convince myself I’m not too old to learn a second one. Eric’s been great. He’s been insistent that if I want to learn Danish that he’ll learn it with me. I have no problem with the soft D. The Y sound the J makes is fine. The ae is sounding okay. Some of the glottal stops and the a and the o can be trying. I’ve only got so many years left. Perhaps I’ll make it.

Am I cheating?Collapse )

Since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated with names. I try to be very respectful of what a person likes to be called. I pay attention, and if that doesn’t work I ask: “Would you prefer I call you ___?”

Just call me LulaCollapse )

Simplifying [Dec. 4th, 2005|10:41 am]

Prompted by the efforts of recumbentgoat to simplify(glad I made the cut!), I will do Before next weekend, I will make some changes as far as my friends list. I will be weeding out and perhaps adding one or two. The factors I will base my decisions on are my own; some has to do with resonsiveness or frequency of updates, some were based on depth of interactions. Some I'm keeping because I enjoy. I will continue to keep my own journal public, though. I hope never to have to change that. Feel free to peek in. If you comment, I will respond. I wish everyone well, but I making an effort about putting my energy where I don't really want to. It's only the internet, people. You'll be fine.

Here's how my own posting habits will work from now on: I will do a few updates each weekend. The rest of the week, I will do my best to keep up with the responses and with keeping abreast of the postings on my friends lists and communities. I'm just getting bored and tired with being disorganized and not being as responsive to those I wish to respond to because my rare free time is spent reviewing things I don't wish to invest in. And I'm annoyed because I lost my keys last night because I wasn't careful putting them in my pocket on the way home from the bar. I hope it doesn't cost too much from the management company to replace them. I've screwed up enough with finances this month.

At any rate, take care. Again: it's only the internet.
