Ok.... let's take it one by one:

1./ It's Carnival/Shrovetide time in Slovenia as well and one of the most appropriate thigs to eat here these days is a thing we call krof, but you can easily take it as a kind of a donut with one major difference - it's much much much better. :) Trust me, I've tried them all and I know what I am talking about. There are some conditions that need to be met if you really want to enjoy a good krof. It must be fresh; a day old is already a no-go for me; it must be really fluffy and soft and it needs to be filled with apricot marmelade. No other version (vanille cream, chocolate, whatever...) is not the real thing. And our secretary brought a giant plate of freshly made, fluffy, soft donuts to our morning meeting. Here's the last remaining one, and please note the wonderful paper plate that was hiding in the cupboard since the last party. :) So, enjoy it!



2./ About all this meme thing going on and on and on.... and on. I think I will make things much easier to me (and probably to all of my possible targets) by deciding I will only partake in meme stuff that does not include more that 5-7, ok, maybe 10 questions. I mean does anybody really read and browse through some 30+ questions/answers someone posts? Tell me what you think about that one, please.

3./ And the Quote of the day - it does not necessarily apply to me, but I like it nevertheless:

"I love mankind, it's people I can't stand." , Charles M. Schulz

1. I think we just call those creme-filled donuts. Apricot marmalade? I think not. :p Filling tends to be boston creme, lemon, jelly and some others I can't think of right now. The best donut place in this part of the US is Krispy Kreme. The donuts are only good for about 12 hours (barely). KK was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina (just an hour or so away). You can even get HOT donuts--mmmmmmmmm. KK has a neon sign in their window that lights up when they are making the donuts. If you ask for a hot donut, they take it right off th assembly line while it is still, yep, HOT! It juts melts in your mouth.

2. You have to pick and choose what meme's you can do. It can be overwhelming and I've learned to only do the quick ones unless it's something I'm very interested in. I'm going to start a new one here myself shortly that's pretty quick (ask any 3 questions of me).

3. No quotes here. I just want to get through the day. :/

1. Trust me... once you've tried apricot marmelade in it, there's no other filling. :)
2. I'll gladly do you.
3. Do your best!
