Mood: argh, mateys!

Next week's going to be horrible. Stats test, a couple Russian grammar quizzes, Drama paper, Drama precis, Public Speaking speech... ew. I think this calls for large amounts of alcohol and/or junk food. (I'm joking about the alcohol... but not the junk food. Sigh. So we meet again, obesity.)

Today, on the other hand, should be fairly uneventful. I still have three classes to go, but I'm more or less prepared for all of them. I may stay on campus to work on the Drama precis, but that's totally up in the air. I'm really in the mood to go home and pass out. Come to think of it, I'm always in the mood to go home and pass out. What's with that?

Oh! Today's Talk Like A Pirate Day. I'm going to try my hardest to talk like a pirate... in Russian. Arrgh, druz'ya!


From Turgenev's "A Month in the Country":

NATALYA PETROVNA. Oh, not a bit, believe me! You can't judge him by what. . . anyone like us would feel in his place. You see he's not at all like us, Rakitin. That's where we go wrong, my dear, we study ourselves very carefully and then imagine we understand human nature.

I gotta know... how do Russians talk like a pirate? In English we say "Arrrgh, mateys!" What about Russian? "Арррг, друзья!"?
