LeRoy and Rinie and a LJ mini-break.

Yup, I was a little LJ absent for the past few days. It was a combination of work-work and translation-work and long hours and short nights and friends and family.

Joyful, joyful!!! After a few years I was able to see LeRoy and Rinie again. One Canadian and the other Dutch were vacationing in Austria and - LUCKILY - made a short, 5-day pit stop in Ljubljana. We went around a bit and talked a lot. God, was I happy to have them around again. I started chatting to LeRoy on ispq ages ago (and to Rinie a few years less LOL) and we finally got to meet in Cologne for carnival a couple of years ago. So, it happened again and I pretty sure it will in the future!!! A few (too many?) pictures will do the trick of their stay with us.

Check LeRoy and his music HERE.
Check Rinie and his photography HERE.

Slovene lesson #4 will happen sometimes this week. Any suggestions, wishes?

And now off to HUGE list of LJ entries and all... Hope I bite myself through it tonight.

HUGS

I was just sort of LJ hibernating. And I am good and safe from harm and it's nice to hear you care, A! :)

Hehehehehehe

Thanks! :)

You are more than welcome here, we just got rid of our version of Bush/McCain (it's official as from yesterday) so it's all good. We'll become an even more relaxed country. :)

Did you notice the colour of Igor's eyes (I'm betting you did) - this is true Slavonic beauty!
And our friend Tomaz here is quite a fine "specimen" of it too.
My nation is partly Slavonic, but these genes are recessive - there are few Slavonic-looking men here in Bulgaria, alas!

Thanks! :)))))

I am a friends person - guess I'd just disappear without people. They truly are the essence of my life.

Take care and HUGS!

how would you pronounce Rinie?
as in, "ren-nay?"

he's adorably gruff, and you're always nice to look at, buddy.

So you weren't kidnapped by aliens or something! ;) I'm glad that you had such a good time with your friends! :)

And Igor has such beautiful blue eyes too! Are there such attractive men in Slovenia that are not gay? One is enough for me, LOL!

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaah who would've kidnapped me, come on! :) I can be a real pest.

And I think there are a few handsome men in the country that are not gay. I think, at least. LOL

I like "without knowing" pics the best. Posing kills them way too often. :)

perhaps school terms...
school phrases...

journalism terms....

journalism school terms...

Like, this is how you say "I'm a student." Or "I'm a journalist."

Just something simple and practical for students/media ppl.

excellent pictures!!!! Glad to know you have a great time talking....


Some people would meet and feel like they know each other and easy to talk right away and there are some people are not easy to talk to - you know what I meant? I preferred those who just meet and easy to talk with fast bonding than those who are not.

My British boyfriend is one of those people - very easy to bond and talk!

That's why I am rarely on ISPQ these days!

Is the photo of the old tea house gone? The gorgeous, exquisitely lighted portrait of Igor comes up in its stead.

I love old tea houses... you're going to wind up making me purchase the Lonely Planet guide to Slovenia...
