Egads! I’ve been nominated (for an award)!

wpid-wp-1441063655909I’d like to express my thanks for The Creative Blogger Award from Babus at the Ajoobacats Blog. My ego and I are not always on speaking terms, and with my people skills such as they are I’m a little unsure of how to accept this gesture gracefully. There are times when I’ve severe doubts about my creativity.
So thank you muchly, whether I feel I deserve it or not.
But in accepting, there are rules, and here they are:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.

2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
3. Nominate some bloggers in return and notify them about their nomination.
4. Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do.
Five Facts About Me:
1. I despise eggplant, and have never liked its taste.
2. I once owned a dog, a miniature poodle named Tiny.
3. My first viewing of Doctor Who was of the early episodes of Tom Baker’s 7 year tenure as the Doctor — “Would you like a jelly-baby?”
4. My first viewing of the Doctor Who reboot was of Series One with Christopher Eccleston in the title role.
5. My confection of choice is gummy-candy.
So here I nominate the following blogs:

I’ve been a bit slow on posting for this week as I’m adjusting my study and daily routine for the next few weeks and afterward.  So Here’s the blogging schedule for posting on this site for the next two months, at least until November rears its ominous head.

The following days have been selected for regular posting: Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are set aside as break periods to allow for extra study. I’m getting into the juicy details of Hindi grammar and vocabulary this month, and need the practice that these breaks allow. The same will be done when full study time is once again devoted to Bengali and then to Tamil.

I might post briefly on those days, but rarely, at least until the next blogging schedule revision once October’s over.

Thanks for clicking on my site, and as always, in proper Soruggon,

This last week was a blast, and a good sign of things so far. This weekend I complete the first few study units of Bengali while preparing to move forward in that. The parts I’m on mostly deal with phrases, vocabulary, and Bangla‘s ever-graceful script, though there are clues throughout as to how the grammar operates, and that’s a step toward reaching part II of the text once I master the basic writing and practice my penmanship while getting the pronunciation correct for the dialect I’m learning, mostly of West Bengal with a little bit of the Bangladeshi speech mixed in via the other textbook, just in case…

Progress has been burdened by the fact that I’m learning three languages, and my previous inability to devote proper study time for each to allow for reliable learning consolidation. That’s been fixed by the current scheduling of my study periods, up to a month or more for each language before moving on to the next.

Well, here we are, with a new week ahead, and one of glorious opportunity. Thank you all for making posting on this and other sites such a thing of wonder, and, in proper Kai’Siri Soruggon, may you all…
