How are you going to spend this weekend?
I'm going to chat with friends
What about you?
Gonna watch a new movie.
What place is it where your friends and you meet to chat?
I'd love to meet them personally but they live too far from me, so we gonna chat through the Internet
What movie are you gonna watch?
My plans have changed and instead of the movie I will make my site.
What do you usually chat about?
Very interesting! What is the theme of your site? (subject of your site)
We have a variety of topics: linguistics, literature, cinema, psychology, events of our (?) life (events of life)
The theme is about (my site is dedicated to) my new life, my interests and also I chat with my friends there.
Why have you exactly these topiсs?
What inspired you to turn over a new leaf?
We held a referendum on topics:) Seriously, it's a long story. But in short, one of my friends is a philologist who wrote in the LiveJournal on these topics. Once I was looking for an answer to some (one) a linguistic question and came across his LJ. So we met. And through him I met other friends who had similar interests
Life itself has made me begin the world anew.
You have a very amazing story about how you found your friends in the LJ. I have almost the same story. Once I and my wife decided to attend English classis and on one weekend I met a philologist too.
How often do you chat with friends via the Internet?
What a coincidence! Both of us have “once upon a time” stories:) And definitely the philologists have a gift to bring people together:) So how long have you been reborn and what interests does your new life consist of?
We arrange our virtual meeting every few days.
I have been reborn for three years.
My new interests are site copying (?) (construction), Madagascar hissing roaches breeding.
My roaches became parents this weekend.
Do you prepare for your virtual meetings or do they go spontaneously?
They look adorable! Such a cutie pies (нельзя множ. число?) cutie pies! The parents entered (have entered) a very responsible period of their life. At this point they face the task of remaining parents, and not turning back into roaches as it happens in some human families. “My roaches became parents” sounds much better than “my parents became roaches”:) So did you give them names?
Well, preparetion (preparation) the preparation refers to the content of conversations, not to the time. Usually we have time to discuss one or two topics
How can I give them names, if they look like peas.
Are you sorry for your weekend to spend your weekend time on the preparations, the conversations and etс?
It seemed to me they're more like beans:) Paraphrasing the well-known catch phrase, I'd say: “One can endlessly look at three things: how the fire burns, how the water flows and how roaches swarming ”(roach's swarming/roaches swarm) are swarming/swarm:)
On the contrary, I'd have regretted (would regret) if I hadn't had (hadn't) did not have those conversation. I'm always glad to chat with friends.
Do you usually spend a weekend at home (in the city) or go out somewhere (at home or go out somewhere) any place/anywhere (?)?
My home IS in the city.
I prefer to spend my weekends at home but sometimes I go out to a restaurant or a cafe, also I like doing shopping on weekends.
Do you happen to work on weekends?
Do you go to any concerts or performances on weekends?
Yes, every Sunday night there's a moment when I realize: “It is happening to me again!”:)
I don't have to go out to see concerts or performances as my people perform the most of it. If I do not have the performances enough, I see the Youtube or listen to music through a tube amplifier and large loudspeakers.
What kind of work do you do that every Sunday happening to you again? :)
Well, this work is like happening:): a group of children and one adult “dance” in a room full of toys. By the “dance” I mean that the adult coordinates interactions, play and communication (interaction among children).
Such an impressive dynamics!(?) (loudspeakers) Your home must be full of beautiful sounds:) So, if you could do all kinds of activities at home, would you not go out at all?:)
Oh, you are a choreographer. :)
You have the dance weekends, like Volochkova's split life.
I would go out from time to time anyway.
I had a very pleasant chat with you.
See you in other topics.
A little bit:) As they say “Heavy is the head that wears many hats” (?) (искал аналог “И швец, и жнец…”) Jack of all trades.
I'm happy this chat has happened to me and hope see you soon:)
