Even among a group as weird as conlangers I have to be odd. I'm right-handed, celebate and haven't a drop of Lithuanian blood that I know of. I do have a goatee which I'm concidering shaving off on Friday. But why don't I have any Lithuanian blood? I have identified English, Scottish, Irish, French, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, German and Frankish, Saxon, Angle and Norman blood in the tree. There are unsubstantiated rumors of Cherokee and Chocktaw. If I keep digging long enough surely I'll uncover some Lithuanian somewhere. Of course by then I'll be clean-shaven.
