Hehe, was it my unexpected beauty or my unexpected ugliness that surprised you? :))) What was I supposed to look like, eh? A long-haired and bearded blonde hippie with sunglasses smoking pot? :))))) Unfortunately, I can't say the same for you, Peter. I rarely keep visual images of people (even of people I have actually met!), so in most cases I didn't expect anything. The only thing is that I had expected you a bit older, I think. --- And Rosta skrzypszy:

LOL. Yes, Muke and me wouldn't easily be mistaken for each other's twin brothers. Well, at least we both like romlangs :) . Aren't you going to upload a picture, And? --- Yitzik skrzypszy:

Yes, I've heard that more often. Even people who didn't know anything about my profession thought I had to be Polish. Strange, because I am much much taller than the average Pole. But it is true: from the very first moment I visited Poland (in 1989) I already felt strangely at home there, and I learnt the language with remarkable ease. Perhaps I was a Pole in my former life, after all. Or who knows, perhaps the mailman was a Pole? :)) Jan ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P.
