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.

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

Thanks for the pics! :))))))

My GOD such beautiful men... You're the most beautifulest, though. ;-)

I may need to come and live in Slovenia if McCain gets elected for a few years!

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. :)

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!

Some nice photos, and everyone looks very handsome.
Sep. 30th, 2008 10:28 pm (UTC)
Guess a really relaxed, happy weekend shows! :)

Thanks, M!

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

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

Sep. 30th, 2008 11:10 pm (UTC)
It's more "rEE-nee" :)

He is a real teddy yes, and THANKS, herb+! :)

Oct. 1st, 2008 10:11 am (UTC)
Must be because we had GREAT time :)
Oct. 1st, 2008 11:03 am (UTC)
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!
Oct. 1st, 2008 11:05 am (UTC)
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 love the way you took pictures of people. : )

Very nice and very natural!
Oct. 1st, 2008 06:06 pm (UTC)
I like "without knowing" pics the best. Posing kills them way too often. :)
Oct. 1st, 2008 11:11 pm (UTC)
Prosim, lesson four= academia and media.
Oct. 1st, 2008 11:48 pm (UTC)
Hmm Hmm

so what should the focus exactly look like? :)
Oct. 2nd, 2008 02:56 am (UTC)
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.

Need to do it this weekend. :)
Oct. 4th, 2008 03:27 am (UTC)

it makes me tingle! ;-)

Oct. 4th, 2008 07:14 am (UTC)
Tingling is perfect. :)))))

me and my mouth LOL

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!

And you should be on ispq sometimes........ :)

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...

Well, get it soon!:)
