Today my boss has been giving me extensive instructions about how to cook eggs in socks with onion skins, which made me realise that it's Orthodox Easter.

In honour of this fact I have switched my LJ language to Russian [pets pretty cyrillics].

And to further this theme, here is a translated Russian joke about parrots.

A Russian, who was officially in the Communist Party but in actual fact loathed it taught his parrot plenty of Communist-directed swear words. But bad luck had it that the next Party Meeting was scheduled at his house, so he quickly bundled his pet into the refrigerator. All was well until somebody opened the fridge door to grab a beer and the parrot flew out. The host paled with fear, but the parrot started shouting: "Long Live Comrade Stalin! Glory to the Communist Party" and other things of that nature.

So after the meeting was over, the host asked the parrot what came over him and the parrot replied: "Siberia, Siberia".


I do like Easter a lot. Although I can't be arsed to go to Church and stand for hours on end with a ton of people, it may be feasible to have a dinner party on Sunday * and provide the Traditional Orthodox Easter Foods.**

*Interested parties leave a comment


**these are not cooked in socks.

And this one is so "fresh" ;)

Someone's journal :
First day
I turned on the radio - Stalin
Second day
I turned on the tv set - Stalin
Third day
I read the newspaper - Stalin
Fourth day
I look at posters - Stalin
Fifth day
I'm afraid of opening the can

Typical food - a russian version of the cheesecake with raisins
and russian bread [it is a bit like panatone if you had that]
and bliny [ a bit like thick pancakes] that you have with cream and chives and fish
also eggs

Oooh, maybe... I had a long and complicated dream about being in Serbia the other night, mostly involving trying to get to that temple near your flat which I was too tired to visit...

Russian jokes are the best jokes in the world! Well, Ukrainian jokes, anyway.
