I don't have huge amounts of things to report except the following:

- I have completed a book in English last week, but that's not any big news. Actually
given that it's practically a native language that's not really news at all
- I have started on "About a Boy", but considering that I bought this copy for half a
euro at a flea market in Gotland it's the Swedish translation - so more accurately you
could say I am reading "om en pojke"
- I have completed another Greek article, and both Greek articles now have
corrections. I need to process and format them for use on my blog.
- You should surely expect another Russian article at the end of the week somewhere.
As for plans to write in other languages, Portuguese is still an option, but so are
Hebrew, French, Romanian and German (next to Dutch and English). I think writing in
Breton would be too hard to get me a corrector for, I could probably try Korean or
Spanish, and I simply lack enough knowledge of Icelandic.
- I have bought a copy of Tagalog for Beginners for 17 euros including an audio CD - I
love finding bargains like that!
- I also bought a mini dictionary Greek-Dutch/Dutch-Greek, which is helping me with my
Greek work now :)

I have now also published the first of my two short Greek entries.

Η δουλειά μου

Apart from the Russian article (which I'll link to in a second), I also wrote some
Russian (humorous) poetry...

ВСЕ РЯДОМ ПОГИБЛИ
Я УЖЕ НЕ ХОЧУ ЖИТЬ
НО КОГДА ПРОСЫПАЮСЬ НОЧЬЮ
ВСТАЮ ЧТОБЫ КРОВЬ ПИТЬ

I leave you to find the meaning of this poem on your own.

All right, since I forgot to link to the big Russian thing I wrote last week I'll do it
now (sorry for forgetting), but I also belatedly got round to putting up the second short
Greek entry I had written for quite a while but simply never managed to correct all the
things I was supposed to correct. Now that I have done all that, two articles for you:

Η Χάγη (Greek)


Об искусственном развитии (Русский)

Next week will have another Russian article but no. 2 is still undecided. I might take
another stab at Portuguese, but I'm also thinking covering a new language on the blog.

That's good, thanks :). I'm aware some of the writing's stylistically on the iffy side,
but there's a few ideas behind some of the lines that make it the way it is (and also
some of it has to do with the rhyme). I've heard that белый стих is very popular in
Russia, and in English I'm capable of being that articulate (my poetry is usually written
in English), but in Russian it's much harder to find the grammatically correct phrasing,
fit it to the rhyme scheme, and make the meter work out, so then I break the rules
because I can.

(I sometimes also break the rules in English though - one of my poems was basically
extended representations of noises).

Here's some more Russian poetry for you guys (excuse the little grammar errors):

Кот-мыслитель

Солнышко мое, любовь, не забывай,
Что я обещал тебе настоящий рай.
И запомни, кто будет тебя там ждать:
Кот-мыслитель будет тебя приветствовать.

Не говори ему просто пару слов,
Не дай ему пить твою красную кровь.
Любовь моя, солнышко, не забывай,
Что обещал я тебе настоящий рай.

Если он идет чуть слышно по облакам,
Не заставляй его вернуться в храм,
Пусть он и умеет без крыльев летать.

Мурлычет он мягко во время полета,
И он будет доволен этим всегда.
Только тебе не стоит об этом забывать.
