Art: Saffron  
May he be a warm breath of fresh summer air on a dreary winter day.

Named thus for the color of the upholstery. Feel free to give the guy a name, if you so wish.

As usual, best effect comes from a full view.

Also, I am always interested to know what type of drawings people want to see. In a way I'm happy to keep going along the lines I have been, but then I am always up for trying something different, too. (Women? Men? More muscle? Less? More clothes?...I'm not familiar enough with the penis to go for less, yet...)

(Oh! And I just learned today that, because of the area of the classical world I'm intending to study, most graduate schools would prefer me to learn Russian over French! SCORE!)

Dionysos, I'll call him.

Hmmm, men. More muscles? Tastes differ, but Dionysos is perfect to my liking. More clothes? Nooooooooo! And, hon, you are an artist, start thorough studies of the penis already.;)

Russian? YAY!

Yeah, I like my men just manly enough. I have a friend who's into the smooth-chested Japanese men, and I just don't get why she doesn't go for men with pecs of death. I was hoping, too, that people wouldn't say more clothes; men's fashion is boring enough without covering all that natural beauty up.

I could make all sorts of excuses; in the end, I think it's because I get embarrassed that I can't draw penises without blushing a little, which makes me blush harder, and my fair skin makes it very obvious that I'm doing so.

Yeah, apparently if you want to do studies involving Asia Minor/Mesopotamia along with Greece and Rome, Russian is a more useful language. It makes me happy. French is dumb.

(Btw, my mother expressed concern for you. Apparently Russia's current temperature has made it on American news programs.)

I don't like them skinny, and I don't like them beefy. Hmm, Brian is okay.;)

You are young. You'll stop blushing eventually.:)

I love how French sounds. I always wanted to learn French, but - alas - my second language is German (which I hate).

Aww, tell her we'll survive. The worst thing is that we have central heating, and the assholes won't regulate it according to the outdoors temperature. And it's friggin' cold indoors.

Sometimes I wish I had been more exposed to nudity growing up. I don't know about what It's like there, but Americans treat it as something almost shameful, which I fully disagree with now.

It sounds cool alright, but they don't pronounce half the letters, but there are exceptions and...it's just too unstructured for my tastes.

Yeah, I assured her that I'd talked to you today. It's so like her to even worry about people she's never met, though.

Yeah, the same here. Very conservative about nudity. Now, that I'm all grown up;) I don't get it. Human body is the most natural thing, and very beautiful (well, mostly). It doesn't mean you should run outside without your pants on, but nothing shamful here.

Yeah, reading rules is an ordeal in French. I wish I could master English, at least.

Mine is the same. Maybe it's what to be a mother is about.

Yeah. I won't raise my kids to be scared of it, certainly.

If it makes you feel any better, your mistakes with English are very characteristic of a Russian speaker, and someone who's actually learning, as opposed to someone who just just doesn't know or care. (and really Americans don't care that much in conversation, so long as you try--we certainly don't care as much as British do).

Well, hearing this from you does make me feel better. There are some things that are similar in both languages. And there are things that you can learn. But some are totally different. Or maybe I'm too lazy. Or my memory is not so good any more. That's why I write down all your notes, or other things I don't know, to go through them again and again.
Another problem is that a language is infinite. You'll never learn everything. But you can always try.:)

We tend to lose our capacity for new languages as we get older, so it does take extra effort. On the plus side, if you ever end up in the States, you'll get ten bonus points on the Hotness Scale just for having a Russian accent.

Then I'll have ten! points on the Hotness Scale.:)
