Actually I had another nickname till the year 2008 (this forum is pretty high-rated in yandex so i don't want to name this nickname here). I had received "Flakey Snowballer" as a Green Trol name vie Live Journal in the year 2008 )), after i deleted LJ account as well. I changed nickname because i broke up with my old life...and Yes I am Flakey Snowballer in all social nets (odnoklassniki, vkontakte and facebook)

And do you snowboard because you're flakey or did snowboarding make that way?

When i started snowboarding for the first time I had another nickname, so first i started doing it and second i changed the nickname.

What's your favourite movie?

Hmmm...Guess it is Vanila Sky and some russian old ones like "Charodei"

I am thinking about him.

4. What is your most annoying habit? (eg, channel flicking on TV, drinking from the carton, not being able to leave the house without wearing matching socks to your beanie)

Frankly speaking i have no clue. Maybe I am Feng Shui addicted so there are some good sectors in the flat there i keep some goods and it is not supposed to move these goods from there and these ones are changed every month

5. Why don't you drink? (alcohol)
:rolleyes:[/quote]

My fairy tell is because i can't but indeed ... When i was a kid i visited one party, there were many teenagers and only two kids and many alcohol beverages of course, so we drank champaign, liqueur, brandy and again champaign and liqueur and again some brandy so in the morning we had terrible hangover and it was disgusted indeed (one boy had been sleeping in a WC all night). So now if i look at beverages in a shop i will remember terrible headaches

It's hard not hardly Flakey.


Like in I work hardly, would mean you don't work very much.


So it's just people you feel good around?

Thank you, Willy. I have one question in this case. One phrase has sticked to me. Does "Hardly to believe" mean it is not possible to believe or not?

So it's just people you feel good around?

Yes you are right

Ok English lesson time.

You would have to say, "it's hard to believe" if it's not believable, but you could say " I hardly believe that" and it would mean the same thing.

Hardly does not mean harder. Hardly can mean not very. You've hardly touch your food. Does not mean you touch your food with your hand in a hard way, it means you didn't eat very much or hardly any!

It's harder to believe he didn't have sex with that very sexy girl when she slept at his place that night, than it would be to believe he did.


Hope that helps.
