Lists

We use the lists to categorize and systematize things. And because the things which can be categorized and systematized are unlimited by number, that’s why the lists are an open set. Many of them can have a quite boring content like, for example, the lists an acquaintance of mine makes in order to plan her time minute by minute while on a four-day trip abroad. Her lists look like this: Paris (23 – 27 May) 23 May 8:00 – 8:30       Waking up and performing habitual morning hygiene activities 8:33             …

10 signs you are dating a gay

10 signs you are dating a gay

I have been on the dating scene for the last 22 years. Some people may consider it pathetic (as I haven’t got married yet), but to me dating has never been a means to achieving the ultimate end of becoming someone’s wife, but rather a l’art pour l’art thing.  Recently, I opened my old “black book”, which I started back in the prehistoric era when we used mobile phones as big as a portable Kalashnikov M16, and started browsing the names of people I had dated through the years. It…

United Fakes of America

United Fakes of America

I have been recently thinking about how each country is unique with at least one particular thing. And not necessarily a good one, but something which it has given to the world (a type of ice-cream,  a bomb, a Holocaust). Something that is its personal recognizable logo design trend. We, the Bulgarians, have only our little invisible brute – lactobacillusbulgaricus, although we have been ferociously trying for the last twenty years to fuck it up (the way we corrupt everything that is nice and decent, and of some quality about…

Drinking as l’art pour l’art

Drinking as l’art pour l’art

  Since the dawn of time, good taste, literary traditions and the pathology of the most common psychological conditions require for a girl like me to spend at least three consecutive days in a state of depression after having decided to change the biological father of her unborn children with another one (who can at least play belote!). And here I am now – wallowing on the sofa all day long, wearing sweaty shorts, a bra that has seen better days, and a pair of the ugliest pink clogs decorated…

Ten reasons why you should visit Bulgaria if you enjoy drinking alcohol

Bulgaria is officially among the top 5 European destinations for low-cost booze consumption. But here are ten reasons why it should be the most favored one The alcohol is one of the cheapest in Europe – that is a given fact.   The traditional Bulgarian alcoholic beverage is rakia. It is most commonly made of fermented grapes and has a high alcohol content varying anywhere between 40% and 95% alc. Once a foreigner has tasted this demonic beverage, his life will never be the same. (Some even claim that there…

PHI [101]

PHI [101]

  The novel [PHI 101] is generally about love’s mysterious ways. But it is far from revealing love’s universal methods of approaches. In the novel, we meet a 40-year old Danish professor of philosophy, who is ranked among the top 10 smartest people on the planet. Despite her innate arrogance and detachment from the people around her, she somehow manages to fall in love. It would not have been such a big thing if the object of her infatuation was not one of the most unostentatious students of hers. She…

In God I do not trust!

In God I do not trust!

Because it’s a personal blog, I guess I can write anything offensive (to someone’s hair style, or weight, skin color, religion, political orientation, marital status, you name it), and experience no consequences whatsoever. At least not legal ones. People’s feelings can get hurt, true; and some fundamentalists may want to rip my head off, but otherwise I’ll be untouchable. I mean, we don’t live in Iran. And we don’t live in the fucking puritan United States either! (I first considered censoring ‘fucking’ by substituting C with an asterisk as it’s…
