A) Remember parsnip-indecisive Owen?

B) Welsh possessive confuses me. As far as I can tell, in a sentence "X has Y", Y is the grammatical subject -- I have an orange cat (yes, they gave me that sentence! proof )) is Mae gen i gath oren, where mae is third person and not first person -- but also things change; I also got this ) and I *think* fi glosses directly as me rather than I, which makes sense from the standpoint of the possessed being the grammatical subject -- Russian also does "at me is thing" rather than "I have a thing", so "is dragon black belonging me" works, but then why is it Mae gen i gath oren and wah -- unless gen and gyda actually belong to two different verbs -- *quiet sobbing*

C) I hit a pretty streak number today. Read more... ) Next major goal: 730 (hahaha yeah right)
