“We were doing a scene in which Mrs Thatcher walks down a corridor with a group of ministers. Between shots, Meryl, still suited and bewigged as Mrs T, sang the Abba hits. It was so incongruous and hilarious and it sums up her humour and sense of mischief. It’s naff to say it, but Meryl makes you feel better about yourself. As an actress, she’s the best of the best. But she’s also unbelievably down-to-earth. She knew everyone on the set by name. She’s appreciative of what other actors do. She has no entourage. It’s like working with a British theatre actress: very unexpected and disarming in someone who has 16 Oscar nominations and two Academy Awards in the bag.”—Richard E. Grant
Hi Anita! I wanna ask you 2 questions:
1st one: You live very far from here, so I guest the foods and everything is different there. Here, for example, for a birthday or a national day, people used to eat arroz con pollo y ensalada de feria, that is chicken with rice and fair salad, that is a pink salad with potatoes, mayonnaise, onion and beet; or maybe Sancocho, that is basically a chicken soup with ñame, a root. So as you can see, here every special food includes some kind of meat so is kind of horrible. I wanna ask you if you have any advice for me of meatless foods from your country, easy to prepare; if you dont mind.
The second question I have is to know wich language do you speak in Hungary? Im asking because this semester Im learning russian, so I dont know if the language used the cyrilic alphabet or something, just curious :)
At first I’m so sorry the really slow reply. Just a little bit craziness around here:)
About the food;The hungarian cuisine is one the best in the world. (as they say:) In our culture cooking is a really important segment. But!
Actually we are in the same situation:) Every typical hungarian dish contains meat. We eat lot of soups, cassaroles, stews….everything is really spicy, and contains meat and paprika.
I still eat these kind of food. I can cook them with soy. I tried everything and it’s really good actually. Of course it doesnt taste exaxtly the same, but it’s pretty close :) If you are interested i can write some of these food recipe with soy. I know that there are vegan”meat” product in the UK and the US and i guess some other places but here these are not available so I have never tried those.
About our language and ABC; we are speaking hungarian language. And we don’t use cyrilic alphabet we use the same ABCDE kind of alphabet with some extra letter. e.x. á,é,í,ó,ú,ű,ö
We are an independent country with own culture, history, tradition and language. We had shared history with Russia when they invaded us but that ended years ago.
Relative I know a lot about Panamá but just the usual informations. You know where it is, languages, some history sutff…but I don’t really know it:) I hope you know what I mean…:D So that’s why
My first question:
What is your 3 favorite thing in your country? What is that you like the most? :)
And because I’m obsessed with cooking I’ll ask you to send me some typical, local food recipes because I would like to try them:) It’s ok if they are with meat, i change that for soy ;)
There are two Colin Firths, who live symbiotically within each other. First is a man of principle, action and compassion, who fights for the powerless. Second is a beloved actor in Britain and an international film star.
The two sides of Colin, 50, inform each other. He can be the glamorous celebrity, but look closely at photos of him on the red carpet: there is a kindness in his eyes, an introspection and consideration. He actively pursues a deeper understanding of the world around him, and his humanitarianism gives a depth and wisdom to his performances.
As Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, Colin underplayed the attractiveness of that character. Here was a man locked away within himself but with great personal standards and morality. It was a performance that made women of all ages swoon. As George VI in The King’s Speech, he revealed the vulnerability and sense of inadequacy that can be found even in the high and mighty. Colin’s innate decency, self-discipline and self-deprecation make him into the archetypal Englishman. His kind, thoughtful, passionate soul makes him into Everyman.
