ObSmugClassicistRemark

My Greek friend last night was appalled that we should even ask the question.

Obviously it was the Greeks.

The Thameside party was to celebrate a new list of the 1000 most influential people in London today.

'Influential', he spluttered.

We don't even know the meaning of the word.

The thousand people who've had most influence on London today were all Greeks.

Well, perhaps a very few Romans.

...שיש גם קבוצת מעריצות שמגדלות דור מעריצות שני.

הגדולה כרגע בת תשע. מעוניינת אובססיבית במצריים העתיקה וענייני חניטה.
העניין ביוונית כזה >< קרוב.
