Not sure why I'm still stickin' around...

...but just 'cause I love this line:

"But I'm afraid you won't be able to see him until visiting hours," she says. "There's a waiting area at Reception for family and friends."

Don touches the brim of his hat and says thanks, then walks out, Danny hurrying after him.

"Now what?" Danny says.

"We're gonna go find the sonofabitch," Don says. He's walking straight for the main entrance.

"I take it we're not waiting for visiting hours."

"You heard what she said. Family and friends. Does that sound like us?"

Inside again, they walk past the front desk, and Don leads the way down a wide corridor. He's checking room numbers.

"Just act like you belong here," he says under his breath.

"I've been doing that all my life."

O hei, minun kisut!

I am still around—I’ve just been really, really busy. I’m pursuing my M.Ed with a concentration in Mathematics now, pretty much cementing my career choice, for better or worse (better, I think, but I am always anxious about fully comitting myself to things, especially this after my ongoing whirlwind love affair with linguistics). I still love you all —that is, if any of you are actually still reading this—or, hey, even if you’re not, I still love you all the same, but you don’t get to see that I do. :'(

I was speaking to my friend in Finnish and tried to say I was petting my cat earlier, but I used the partitive wrong and said I was ironing her. :|

So, so epic...

I hate when people say everything is “epic,” but really, there are no other words to describe the pure epicness here.

Suomi woes

Fuckin’ partitives, how do they work?

It’s an indefinite. It’s a progressive. It’s an atelic. It’s... confusing as fuck.

(Also, the Finnish I used a couple of entries ago already embarrasses me. But that means I’m learning! :D I’m probably going to do a bigger tl;dr entry on this stuff a little later.)
