Zelim jesti burek

Not much to report today… spent most of it worrying about being stupid, trying to get my head around a whole new set of acronyms and poring over organograms trying to work out who's who in the different teams I'll be working with. Went to the gym this evening though, and ran properly for the first time in ages (6km). Just realised that it's 7 weeks till the Windsor half–marathon, and I need to train as I've been really slack for the past couple of months. Especially as I'm away for almost 2 weeks at the end of August.

Been ressurecting my dodgy Bosnian language skills for the past few days, and have now remembered how to count to 10 and learned some useful food items / social niceties. My self–taught language classes usually involve me muttering under my breath and trying to make up mini dialogues with myself on the tube. Really exciting dialogues that go something like this:

"3 eggs please."
"7 tomatoes?"
"No. 3 eggs. How much does it cost?"
"8 KM."
"Thank you. I like to eat pie. How are you?"
"I like cats."

I'm sure this will be very useful come August 20th.

  1. Sounds like a challenge/response thing from a Cold War spy novel!
