I was talking to another fan once and they said they were interested in other things right then. I joked hey the Romanovs don't mind if the other interest  has  you for awhile...they know it's just a loan! lol!

Today a customer entered my shop. I know her - and hate her. Never knows what she wants. Always undecise. Always asking for advice and then - not following. It take her not less than 30 min. to buy something, she never spends much and always wants sales and quarrels about it.
She' not unkind or similar - just so slow and undecise. Today with my collegue we were chatting asbout her once she had gone out. My collegue: "I don't even find a word to define her."
"Oh, i have!" i exclaimed. "A cow!"
She began to laugh and laugh, but a bell sounded in my head, so i shouted out: "I got it, Fran! she's Anna Vyrubova's reincarnation!"
Of course i don't want to offend poor anja, but that "cow" remindend me of something...
Now i know i'm deeply obsessed!

I like that! Anna Vyrubova's reincarnation!  :D
But how would "cow" describe someone indecisive?

In italian we usually refer to people who speak slowly, without enthusiasm, indecisive, as "cow"; maybe (but i'm not sure) because cows are always ruminating their grass with a odd expression - just like those kind of people "ruminate" their thoughts without expression? Justr IMHO, but it commonly used in italian. We also call them "cattle" when they also seem ignorant. Don't know why!

Ha, ha... never thought about that! Well I guess when the world has hurricane Elizabeth! We can think "wait are they talking about Alix's sister Ella?" Or for example Hurricane Ernie comes... well i guess who we can think about then! Interesting how we can joke about a serious situation... but hey it's better then being nervous wrecks!

Oh dear I think you got that from me... which i totally don't mind! It's good to make nice out of a situation like this i mean what else should you do sit and feel sorry for yourself and think "oh god i'm going to die" not the way to go! But yes Olga Bernice I agree with you... I now declare it to be called "Hurricane Alix's Sister"!  :)

Apparently so... she doesn't seem the quiet one to me now! Oh poor Irene... I only hope she's laughing at us from up above! Okay maybe not AT us but at this conversation!  :)
