The dreaded question - "What have you been doing ? "


#706

Like, how personal?
I am asking because I also got a bit personal with you and wouldn’t want this to backfire…


#707

I never expected this thread to go so long


#708

I like u guya chatting …keeeeeep it ùuuuuuuup…!!!


#709

Wanted to know things like what I did for a job. It made me feel uncomfortable. It’s not easy admitting to strangers, outside of a forum such as this, that you have never worked.


#710

I feel you man.
But it shouldn’t deter you from resuming your online scrabbling hobby. Just ignore personal questions if they ever occur, and go about your business…

I think indulging in such a cool hobby can only do you good. I suck at scrabble, and also don’t know enough English words to play competitively. But you don’t lack in that area…

Have you kept playing this one?

You could try the 4x4 board now that you’ve mastered 3x3 :wink:


#711

You can play in Romanian. http://isc.ro/ro/index.html


#712

I usually tell people that I’ve been going to the gym. I think a good one to tell people when you’re not doing anything is - “chillin” My cousin’s tell me that all the time and I used to say it when I lived nearer


#713

I can play in Romanian, but don’t want to bump into my distant aunt who plays competitively in Romanian and French. She doesn’t know I am ill. My dad has been feeding her lies about me for the past 3 years…
Anyway, I will definitely give it a try.

Do you watch Eurovision on tv? It happens every year around the month of May.


#714

I’ve watched Eurovision in the past,but not for many years now.


#715

You surely remember this one:


#716

You did it in 1619 secs with 539 moves!


#717

Yes I definitely remember “Waterloo” . We were all rooting for it to win.


#718

That’s what I want to hear. Never back down.

Another iconic Eurovision winner. My favorite “Insieme” (“Together”) by Toto Cutugno.

Lyrics in English:

Together, unite, unite, Europe

With you, so far and different
With you, a friend that I thougt I lost
You and I, having the same dream
Together, unite, unite, Europe

And for you, a woman without borders
With you, under the same flags
You and I, under the same sky
Together, unite, unite, Europe

We’re more and more free
It’s no longer a dream and you’re no longer alone
We’re higher and higher
Give me your hand, so we can fly
Europe is not far away
This is an Italian song for you
Together, unite, unite, Europe

For us, in heaven a thousand violins
For us, love without borders
You and I, having the same ideals, mmm…
Together, unite, unite, Europe

We’re more and more free
It’s no longer a dream and we’re no longer alone
We’re uniting more and more
Give me your hand and you’ll see you’re flying
Europe is not far away
This is an Italian song for you
Together, unite, unite, Europe

We’re more and more free
(More and more free)
Our stars, one single flag
We’re stronger and stronger
(Stronger and stronger)
Give me your hand and you’ll see yourself flying
Europe is not far away
This is an Italian song for you
Together, unite, unite, Europe

Europe is not far away
This is an Italian song for you
Together, unite, unite, Europe

I liked the tune and her voice even if I couldn’t understand the lyrics.


#720

An English speaking cover version.


#721

From now on I will try to show you a Romanian song every day.
Today it is “Dincolo de nori” (Beyond the clouds):

English lyrics :
In the day that comes,
Maybe you will listen to me,
I chose both evil and good.
A part of me
I leave in your care.

Dreamless nights
Questions without answers
awaken from the memory
my hidden soul

Chorus:
Beyond the clouds,
there’s a ray of light!
Beyond the clouds
is my world!

I don’t ask for forgiveness
for everything I’ve done.
I ask for a ray of love,
to start from the beginning.

I have strength now
to change something in the world
I have the strenght to dream.

Beyond the clouds,
Is my world!

Do you have stray dogs in your town?

We do have a great number of them. The most part have been sterilized and given vaccines, to stop the reproduction and disease spreading, but not all. Occasionally people abandon a whole litter of pups on the outskirts of our town, that is why their number doesn’t decrease… it’s a bit sad.


#723

I guess we must have a few but I don’t hear about it so guess it’s not a major problem.


#724

Anyway, are you afraid of stray dogs if one crosses your path? I am not usually afraid, but sometimes at night, if they are in a pack, they might become aggressive…


#725

If it was a big dog like an Alsatian,Doberman or Rottweiler then yes.
