photo for the (rainy) day

showed up in office to this nice image (courtesy of smorgy). not sure if i love the glasses more or loove the fact that she speaks so lovely fluent russian! (not that i can understand… between her russian/bulgarian/italian/german/french and my vietnamese/english/puny-french, you’d hope we manage eventually when i get around to shake hands with her one of these days ;-). the last 2 handshakes apparently took place in english…) click on image for link to her lovely conversation and rehearsal on YT, all thanks to Deoniz.

    Lovely photo and lovely video indeed! Excellent lesson in the use of the diaphragm and the glasses are positively cute. Who cares if it’s raining 😉 we can all go to Russian classes now!

      Are we tagging that along with our German class as double-feature? ;D I definitely need help with that language. Tried to learn it to read Bulgakov’s Master i Margarita in original language (it’s my all time favorite novel), but its many complications defeated me. :p

      Thanks a bunch to Deoniz for sharing the footage indeed. It sure is making this nasty heatwave a lot more tolerable for me. 😀

      Hey, I bet she can even talk to you in English, An. 🙂 She did an interview in English with BBC3 a few years back. Too bad the sound clip isn’t on their site anymore.

        ah, english! i want to hear that!!! Eyes, could you contact your people about this clip? 😉
        glasses are wayy cute, i should go change mine now…
        i was debating indeed between russian and german! only thing i understood was spasíba!
        it’s great to see her interacting w/ others, soo soft, normal, even humble, until the singing starts, then i’d be intimidated 😀
        with this drizzling and cold rain here, how i wish to be in that niiice warm cozy rehearsal room…

    That’s a point – exactly what is the weather doing in Moscow right now? I feel a fantasy trip coming on for we 3. I will bring my Leajet Gulfsream IV tomorrow so who should I pick up first- East coast or West coast? and what order would you like to make with Chef for the journey?

  3. Smorg says:

    West Coast! West Coast! I have a date with 2 very cute Mormon girls tomorrow, but I would stand up even Richard Feynman himself for an escape on a lear jet to see one VK in action. 😀 We can drop by in LA on the way and pick up a steaming bowl of Pho for Dr. T to make up for the wait time. 😉

  4. Eyesometric says:

    What do you think, Dr. T? Shall we deprive Smorg of her double date? or pick her up on the way West. Depends how much paperwork you have I guess.
