  1. I’m thinking Hungaria the country, similar like I think of Germany like Germania. Women used to wear similar “folk” outfits. White ruffled bodice with bright colored design on front, matching brightly colored full skirts. While most think of Gypsies in Romania, I believe Hungaria has a sizable Gypsy population. Dispora is a bitch.Aside from that, I do not know any particulars of the country. Hungarian sounds rough like Deutsch and Austrian. They shared a common history centuries ago at some point I would guess.Prx

  2. correction: <>Diaspora<> is a bitch.commonly referred to the scattering of the Jews from Palestain, but appropriate term for any minority group that have no specific nation-state to call home.Prx

  3. I imagine Lepke Pillango, our Hungarian friend on facebook who comments on Blogger as Ariel and posts pictures as Icegrapefruit on flickr and goes by Gabriella on her email. She lives in Budapest.

  4. Makes me think of Hungry too. And Kostolany. And Soros.PS. Dude, you need to get < HREF="http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=eyw_dEivmss&feature=related" REL="nofollow">your speakers fixed.<>

  5. Until one hour ago my trail of thoughts went like this:University of X., Institut for Germanistics, library, fixed position, mooove …As I learned said hour ago the wife of a member of the institute won, while being no natural speaker and no “Germanist” (both required) but very attractive. Another waste of thought and paper.That was that.

  6. Damn…I hate it when this happens. Was talking with one of those cockroaches from the gubbermint yesterday, when it sort of slipped out that his <>wife<> had a similar job there. I mean, what are the odds? I doubt they met at work. *eyeroll*
