So I went to my first intro Russian class at PCC. Strange...like being back in high school with older folks who aren't quite as stupid as I remember my classmates in high school being. But what really amused me was my own geekdom as we were learning the alphabet. Of course, we started learning cursive, which is pretty but a little hard to read at first. It was easier for me to consider some of the letters by how similar they are to Greek. But really! The capital T in cyrilic looks like a big pi sign with an extra line in the middle. And the lower-case m in cyrilic looks like a lower-case mu.
