I'm tempted to get the stuff for Turkmen. Learning that would be a lark for me.

... after an astonishing F1 race instead of writing a post in a blog you L-R a chapter and lose all the power to write afterwards.

When you catch yourself spelling words in your native language with consonant/vowel combinations from your L2.

I was writing out a shopping list and started writing "sch---" when I meant to write "shake", again with "drei-" when I meant to write "dried" and I almost wrote "jogurt".

When you get iritated when you can't find a certain word in your dictionary, and then you realize that you are trying to look a Greek word from your guide to Athens up in a Serbian Cyrillic dictionary.

When you use the thread about being a language nerd to restore your settings

I just use abcTajpu:)
here's my substitution list:

z=ż|h=♥|n=ń|N=Ń|ö=>|,=<|ж=>|б=<


(you type the letter and then you press a hotkey to change it) many of these are arranged by proximity (e.g. those for c, z), j is č because i mostly need it for the name Kranjčar as of now :-)
The layouts I have set are Finnish and Russian, but the physical keyboards sold in Finland have one extra key >_< so I needed a way to type those squared brackets.

I was planning to make a custom layout one day, but typing a letter and then F12 is easier than typing AltGr+letter, imo.

When you try to use your custom keystrokes to write on someone else's computer and it doesn't work, and it almost
makes you want to (ą _ ą)

When you see a list of blood types and automatically associate A+, B- etc. with language levels.

When while organizing your quarters, you count that the number of languages you have materials for is at least over a dozen, and you feverishly try to think of a place to cram your stockpile of Italian science magazines you got just in case.
