Just thought it'd be nice to get to know each other.. coz I don't speak or read russian.. sad.gif

Anyways, I'm actually Australian and I'm currently living and working in Canada biggrin.gif
--------------------------------

Просто подумала, что было бы интересно узнать друг друга. Потому что я не говорю и не умею читать по-русски sad.gif

Ну а я вообще-то из Австралии, но на данный момент живу и работаю в Канаде.
Aiwan
Да, хорошая тема. smile.gif Мне тоже интересно узнать про вас всех.
Ну, я сам живу на крайнем севере. Где-то недалеко от полярного круга. Работаю я за полярным кругом biggrin.gif Симой холодно и постоянно темно, северное сияние, много снега, летом прохладно, комары, мошки и светло ночью как днем. Вот в таком месте я живу и очень люблю свой город и север. Люблю зиму и морозы. biggrin.gif
----------------------

Yeah, good theme. smile.gif I would be glad to know something about you all.

Well. I live in the North. Close to Polar Circle. And I work within the Polar Circle biggrin.gif. Winter is cold and dark, much snow, the Northern (polar) Lights. Summer is chilly, mosquitos, midges and it's light as a day-time. There I live. I really love my town and the North. I love winter and frosts.

Good morning, or (perhaps good afternoon or good night).

I am from Spain and I live in Barcelona, a sunny mediterranean city. This summer is hot, to much hot and dry IPB Image. We are waiting for the rain and a cool weather but tourists only want sun and beach.

--------------------------

доброе утро или день или ночь.

Я из Испании, живу в Барселоне, солнечный средиземноморский город. Это лето жаркое, очень жаркое и сухое. Мы ждем дождя и холодной погоды, но туристы желают солнца и пляжа.

hi

live most of my life in Europe as a kid, 3 yrs in Greece and 6 yrs in Spain, didnt learn to speak it, figure i wasnt going back, no reason to learn it, guess i should have biggrin.gif

I now live in Houston, Texas, been here about 8 yrs now, weather is great, 4 seasons how i like it, prefer the cold more, but i love the water also, spent most of my time jetskiing when not on computer.
--------------------------
живу большую часть своей жизни в Европе ребенком. 3 года в Греции и 6 лет в Испании, правда не научился говорить на из языке, так как не собирался возвращаться, е было причины учить, наверное я должен был biggrin.gif

Сейчас я живу в Хьюстоне, в Техасе. Уже 8 лет будет. Погода отличная, 4 сезона, так как я люблю, предпочитаю холод, но и воду я люблю также. Провожу основную часть своего времени рассекая волны водным мотоциклом, если не занят с компьютером.

I've always lived in the US (except when travelling abroad for work for periods of time). I've lived the last 4.5 years in Florida (Tampa Bay area 1 hour west of Orlando/Disney). We have the hot sun, many beaches, and occasional hurricane scares in the area. I really like the area, the hurricanes are the only negative side in my opinion. Before Florida I lived my entire life in Michigan where there are four seasons and we would get hot hot weather as well as cold cold weather. Also I lived near the birthplace of the automobile (Detroit).
-------------------

Я всегда жил в США (ну, кроме тех случаев, когда случались командировки по работе) Последние 4, 5 года я живу во Флориде ( в районе Темпа Бей час на запад от Орландо/Дисней) У нас горячее солнце, много пляжей и случаются страшные ураганы. Я очень люблю этот район, только ураганы портят мое впечатление. Раньше Флориды я жил все свою жизнь в Мичигане, там 4 сезона и случалась жаркая жаркая погода так же как и холодная холодная. Также там рядом было местомрождение автомобилей (Детройт)

Hi everyone! I'm from Canada. The winters are usually quite cold and long here, too, but that doesn't bother me at all. I love winter. As a kid, I lived in all sorts of places (Monica: Cologne! good.gif ), because my dad was a journalist, but Canada has always been home. smile.gif
Mr Mayor
yahoo.gif I'm in!

Well hello all. The names' Mark, I live in New Jersey, U.S. of A. I've been lurking here for a few days and decided to join due to the sheer quality of the smilies here! I need to thank all of the authors and creators! drinks.gif

There's an AWFUL lot of RUSSIAN ONLY posts in these ENGLISH ONLY sections
being spoken, can ya help a brother out??? rofl.gif

English is my only language, so I have a tendency to use a lot of slang...sorry! (I fixed some just now)

I can only speak the Italian curse words, and a few in German, though the latter is from working for a DE based Pharmaceutical company for a few years... (Nice of them to teach me the bad stuff, aint it? )

I hate to even SAY that I created a few smilies of my own. I would more refer to them as a "needed, animated gif, created quickly and horribly" then smilies/emoticons.

Lastly, what exactly IS a Kolobok?

MGJ
dilia
hi there
Kolobok is a character of old russian folk fairy tale ( kolobok is a sort of pie, made in ball form) . Aiwan is original author and owner of these smileys and this website. These smilies got name from Aiwan's wife, when she seen them first time. Yellow circles with eyes and mouths were looking like kolobok in the books and she called them koloboks. Aiwan liked this name for his smileys and since then they are having this name.

Hey bro drinks.gif

you’ve come to the Russian site created by a very talented and honest Russian artist. His name is Aiwan. He's my good friend. He can't provide you with clear English by himself, but Dilia can do it pretty well. So, the mane things are translated by her in both ways.

KOLOBOK is one of Aiwan's trademarks and it's really come from Russian ferry tales about round bread and the old couple with no kids. So...

There is English forum room where people from many countries can understand each other easy. Join the club and will be together.


Aiwan
Hi wink.gif
The kolobok is a famous character of a really old russian fairy tale, for very little kids. See here


And here
Mr Mayor
OK so now I get it! An old fairy tale. Thanks for the education, I feel much better knowing I can now safely make it a "favorite" without my Russian co-worker keeping a watchful eye on me! lol.gif

As for English/Russian forum, my apologies, I phrased my comments wrong. I meant to say that in the section known as For English Users I had spotted quite a few replies in RUSSIAN with no translation... was just playing there..... no harm inteneded! Just a little forum fun!

Anyway, thanks for the 'welcome aboard'. While I cannot translate anything, I can fix the broken English I see. I won't point out any of it because it's simply not polite, however, If I'm asked nicely I could be swayed... dirol.gif

Без перевода! (God I hope this translates correctly, I could easily look like an idiot here)
So, is anyone using a Russian/English translator webpage??? Post away!

MGJ


Just Cuz
QUOTE( Mark)

Occasionally, if I come upon one of Aiwan's posts before dilia or Dooris has translated, I'll run it through BabelFish.

Unfortunately it can't do the job half as well as they, and usually doesn't make much sense. nea.gif

QUOTE( Mark)
Без перевода!

See... BabelFish tells me that means "Without the transfer!"

ImTranslator says it's "Without translation!"

Both are kinda jibberish - unless that's what you meant to say. pardon.gif


dilia
"Without the transfer!" , "Without translation!"
both are correct, but usually this phrase means "without translation".
Just Cuz

Ok.

Well in that case it's still a sentence fragment and doesn't mean a whole lot to me. pardon.gif
Mr Mayor
So, what your saying is, "I like look an idiot", just as I predicted.

I guess "Goodbye" in English didn't translate over too well, hence it bombed with the "without translation" error.... I wish it warned me about it! My first Russian/English mistake! I kinda like it! rofl.gif

Thanks, and "goodbye"! biggrin.gif

MGJ
Just Cuz

I believe then that "прощание" would be what you were trying to say. wink.gif

Those are wonderful pictures, Aiwan. I'd like to be there now and do some snow shoeing. It's so mild here this winter, we have no snow yet at all.

I have no winter pictures of my neck of the woods, but here are a few shots I took last summer:

Flowerpot Island
Cove Island Lighthouse
Maidenhair Fern
"The Grotto"
"Overhanging Point"
Pebble Beach
Azure and turquoise waters of Georgian Bay
Wreck of the steamer "City of Grand Rapids", sunk in 1907.
Aiwan
viannen, а море и вправду такое синее? Обалдеть... Это в Канаде? Не думаю, что когда-то попаду туда. Спасибо, за фото, они здоровские!
viannen
Yes, Georgian Bay is really that blue and turquoise. It looks like the Caribbean, but it's a fresh water lake! It's also quite deep, crystal clear and very cold. It's in the north of Ontario. Here is a map: http://www.crooked-stroke.org/images/nbpmap.jpg

I hope you do get to visit Canada some day, just as I dream of seeing Russia one day. We'll have to grow wings. smile.gif

Stunning photos, snoozer and ViShenk@! Thank you! Sigh. What a beautiful country. I want to see Russia!!!
My older brother, who is a musician, went to Russia on a concert tour a few years ago, and he raves about it. He loved the country and he loved the people (and they loved him, too). I envy him terribly. But some day I'll get there. One fine day I'll board a plane...
Aiwan
viannen, зато ты можешь пойти на матч NHL и посмотреть их живьем wink.gif А вообще, приезжай! Будем рады!

Unfortunately, I don't often have a chance to see an NHL game live. It isn't always possible to drive so far for a game, and the tickets are quite expensive. cray.gif But I play whenever I can, and often go to see a friend play - his team is quite good too. He loves your hockey Koloboks! smile.gif
