The single actually productive thing I did last week -- teach myself cursive cyrillic. We haven't done that in class so far, but last Monday we had a (incredibly cute, btw) stand-in teacher who used the cursive letters all the time, and after the third time when one of us said that we couldn't read that, said, exasperated, "But no one writes like that! No one!!!".


Back to work tomorrow. ::sigh:: Had a niceish afternoon with R., driving out to Laxenburg for a walk but getting caught in the rain which turned out to be a bit more persistent and not quite as brief shower-y as the forecast predicted, drove back and went to see Doris Dörrie's Kirschblüten (a bit on the kitsch/tearjerker side occasionally, but mostly a very moving, well-acted film). Went through our belly-dancing choreography. Did a bit of Russian studying.


In DWish news -- The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky for some reason left me really cold, and while I liked Martha in S3 she's becoming a bit too ubiquitous (another episode?); it doesn't seem fair that Donna, who is my favourite companion already and perfectly lovely all by herself, or by herself with the Doctor, has to share the season with Martha, Rose, Jack and the remaining Torchwood team and whomever else they'll be bringing in. (Don't tell me!! I'm trying to remain relatively unspoiled for the finale beyond that.)

Is that your writing? It's gorgeous!

*g* This is me paying attention to every single letter and pausing a couple of times when the word is a long one. My normal, non-cyrillic handwriting is a *lot* sloppier and more illegible.

Cursive Cyrillic is so pretty.... but yes, it seems about as arcane as Sütterlin and Kurrentschrift. They're attractive and elegant, but so hard to read.

Yes, reading is more of a problem than writing at the moment. :)

But writing it like this *is* in fact easier, and I guess I'll get used to it with time... I hope.

The photo of your handwriting is beautiful.
