Rolling the Rosetta Stone

Earlier this week I returned from my second trip to Ukraine. This time, I was able to speak some words of Russian and read some of the signs so it didn't seem so "foreign" to me.
I've decided that since I'm very likely to go back in a couple years, I'm setting a goal of being fluent in Russian in the next two years.
Hence..the Rosetta Stone adventure.
Tonight's first foray into increasing my skills, took me 1 hour. That was just to activate the software. Wonder how you say HOLY SMOKE in Russian!!
The activation key didn't work so I spent an hour chatting with a support person on chat.
After just 3 guess..umm deductions, he hit upon the correct solution and now I'm off and running.
Only now, it's 1am and I need to go to bed.

может быть, завтра (maybe tomorrow)
