That title there is Finnish for "from its unsystematic nature?" All one word with a prefix and at least four suffixes! I get gleeful when I realize my language allows me to form words like that and to say things like  "Istahtaisinkohan?" which means "I wonder if I should sit down for a while?". One word for something that would take ten to say in English. That's your Finnish lesson of the day, kids.

And to thank you for sticking around through times of no art whatsoever, a doodle drawn after I saw the first ep of Sherlock.

P.S. I am hooked and confused by Lost Girl.

Ah, Finnish. My dad knows a bit of it (he was raised by his grandparents who were first-gen immigrants from Karelia) and listening to him speak it is always cool to me--I've been meaning to learn myself but haven't had the time yet.

Oh that's cool! I think it's lots of fun and its reputation of being difficult is ALL LIES spread by the Swedish, but then again I am a native speaker and definitely biased. :D

It's not at all hard Nasty dearest, it's just different. And a little impossible. Which is to say FUN. :D
