This made me laugh. I remember traveling in Hungary and feeling like every sign had been composed by shaking out scrabble letters (the Czech Republic was equally linguistically challenging and had a similar dearth of vowels). On the other hand. Hungary must be a sort of melting pot of Eastern Europe. I have a very un-Latin face, and there was nowhere else in Europe, England included, where I felt I blended in with the crowd, so much so that someone asked me for directions in halting Hungarian. Happy grading!
Well, right now I'm willing to settle for survivable grading....
+JMJ+ I would like to hear a dramatic recitation of this. =P I begin a two-week-long Christmas vacation this weekend and I can hardly wait! What about you, Brandon?
My break will be quite low-key: no definite plans, except that I have a lot of things to get done before the start of next term! But it will be nice to take it relatively easy for a while.
