The post about bears was by far the most popular this week, which goes to prove my theory that nothing beats bears except more and smaller bears. BEAR BABIES.

Meanwhile, A.’s communication with the bureaucratic minions of Satan (or, Tchort, as he is known in Russia) is going along these lines:
A.: Hi, it’s me again, is my passport ready?
MofS: What? Who are you? What do you want?
A.: My passport. Remember, the one I was supposed to have received by Friday? I’m the guy who’s been coming here every day for two weeks? Who only asked for enough leave at work for you to do things on time and is now supposed to be at the office?
MofS: Uh? Huh? Yeaaah, it’s not ready. Oh wait, no, it is. But it’s not here. It’ll be delivered some time this week. Probably. Or maybe not. Don’t hold your breath. Don’t call us, we’ll call you and all. You know. Bolivar, he’s plenty tired, and he can’t carry double.
A.: But… what?
MofS: Go away now, nothing to see here.
Me: AaaAAaaRRgh!! *head blows up*

And then today of all days I received an ominous phone call that went like this:
Caller: Hello, may I speak to Mr P. please? (that’s A., he’ll be Mr P. to you!)
Me: He’s not here, shall I take a message?
Caller: Ummm, nnnoo, but when will he be back?
Me: I’m not sure, he is on leave now.
Caller: Ooookayy, thanks…
Me: AaaAAaaRRgh!! *head blows up*

Okay, this doesn’t look very ominous written down, but take my word for it, all the time we were speaking (which was a while with all the uncertainty and dragging on words) there was an alarm going on in my head like: wee-woo-wee-woo-wee-woo-head-office-wee-woo.

    Isn’t chort a sort of small ranking demon?

      that’s a chortik:) there’s a difference between a chort and the chort, i guess. you say chort in russian where you would say hell in english, and k chortu (to chort) where you would say leazazel in hebrew. so this chort is identified with the entire hell.
