is this thing on?

hmm. i don't really have anything to say, at least nothing i would put on a public blog. there's not much going on in my life out here in the hinterland. as i sit here i am doing several things, however: 1) learning to speak Ukrainian 2) waiting for UPS to bring my asafoetida, mango powder, and tamarind paste (yes, my husband and i cook Indian food--dot, not feather).

i should mention that i'm learning Ukrainian so i can speak a little bit to the little girl my friends April & Jason are adopting in Ukraine as i type. i already speak a little Russian, so it's not hard to learn Ukrainian. i'm actually really loving Ukrainian; compared to Russian it's softer in the mouth, like eating milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet.

why do i speak Russian, you ask? i was a Russian linguist in the USAF a long, long time ago. i am definitely not fluent in Russian any more. i am, however, completely fluent in sarcasm. i could probably teach a college level class in it. speaking of teaching classes, (note to self) it's time to prepare for the Type 1 Diabetes class i'm teaching the Young Women next week!
