Kitty Levin

I stalk:
Eastern European nations, particularly Lithuania and Russia
Singers from the aforementioned nations, especially those who've been in Eurovision and/or are ludicrously famous
Languages (stress patterns and all)
Anything cool that has to do with history, international relations, or linguistics.
I obsess over this stuff no end, to the benefit of whoever's interested.
日本語を少し話す, и сейчас я занимаюсь русским языком. Ir studijuoju lietuvių kalbą! Please feel free to write to me in any of the aforementioned languages . . .

I feel I should tell my Tumblr as well as my Facebook that last night at 1:30 AM I sent an email in Lithuanian to the Lithuanian consulate in St. Petersburg, asking about visas (which is relevant to them for complicated reasons).

They haven’t answered yet.  They’re probably not done laughing at my grammar. ;P

if it’s not a long email next time i could help you fix the most obvious errors at least??

should have asked one of my friends (you, or one of the 3 or 4 Lithuanians who owe me favors for correcting their English letters/emails/homework/etc.) but for some reason at 1AM I was just like LEEEEROY JEEEEENKINS! and sent it.  I don’t know what I was doing.

This planet has — or rather had — a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much all of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because on the whole it wasn’t the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
