When people ask you why you don't learn Finnish and Hungarian too, now you are at it


When your immediate reply is to smile brightly, tell them "Yes, that's a great idea, I will do that!" and you actually mean it.


Or when you answer is, "I did those ten years ago!"


Actually I have just ordered the Finnish grammar from Routledge - but of course not to be used within the foreseeable future, just to have it if I some day should feel like having a peek. I already have a Hungarian grammar, but only a couple of tiny dictionaries and one book in Hungarian about Denmark.

Even worse, I often carry these books around with me in my bag wherever I go! And my ipod has more audio on
languages than music.

You bought your 8 GB iPod thinking you would never need that much space...only to find that two months latter you're deleting you music to fit in more language mp3's...what's worse is that the 64 GB iPod touch is starting to look really good...
