Szia Stephi!

Hogy vagy?

I opened my mail only this morning, so I couldn't answer. I wasn't working yesterday at all! Shame on me, I'm such a lazy thing. I went to bed at 7 p.m. instead. And fell asleep immediately...

Szia!
Jól vagyok, köszi

No prob, on the contrary: lazy people are not only congenial to me,
but they also live longer

Wohooo! I learned a new word today (congenial) and I feel a lot happier knowing that procrastination has some positive effects, too!

Want to hire a somewhat lazy writer/programmer?

^If lazy me ever should have an own firm - of course and at once!

(You wouldn't mind working in a bar/club, or? Though lately the idea of having a small, alternative publishing company crept into my "hypothetical future employment ideas" folder - still I will have to win in lottery )

It's just amazing what they wear,
Or don’t. They swing their flowing hair,
Their shoulders, legs, and midriffs bare.
We over thirties don't exist
For those who age has not yet kissed.
Unconscious of the knives they twist,
The young girls go, the young girls come,
Illumining "Byzantium".

I think it might be grenadírmars.

that's it!

I've never heard that expression, but it might be, because the original genadir is made from small, square-shaped pasta (kocka). But we call it grenadir and I love it too. Everything hot and spicy goes...

Hehh!

Women's clothes were not a subject that preoccupied Cutwell much -- in fact, usually when he thought about women his mental pictures seldom included any clothes at all -- but the vision in front of him really did take his breath away.

She was a pretty enough girl in a droopy, blonde, saucer-eyed way, but not the sort of breath-taker that takes the breath.
