Hello. My name is Liza. I come from TEH USSR... but I've been living in California for quite some time now. I spent a year and a half in Japan teaching English and I really enjoyed it.
Добро пожаловать, Лиза! Приятно мне читать, что у нас приехал русском или украйнском члену. :D

Welcome! I'm rather new as well, and also sport a Russian title, though probably I beefed the transliteration. Neat that you spent a year and a half in Japan, teaching English. I'd thought of doing the same sort of thing, except I'd want to go to Siberia for it.

In any case, this is a great little place - always bustling with trivia and activity. Welcome!

Cool you can speak Russian. I can't really read very well, but I understood your sentence, I think. At first I thought you said you were from Ukraine XD. I'm from Russia... but back when it was still the USSR. Heh. Are you learning Russian? I should do that. And who would VOLUNTARILY go to Siberia? I guess you are interested in cold tundra with freezing weather XD. Or maybe you're tired of this global warming and want to go to a place where it hits negative temperatures a significant part of the year. hehe.

Oh, trust me - I live in Canada so negative temperatures aren't a problem, LoL.

I study Soviet history, so as part of the degree requirements I had to take a few years of Russian. I lived in St Petersburg / Leningrad for four months in 2006 as part of my program, and went back to visit this summer. My written / spoken grammar is pretty atrocious these days, but reading and listening isn't too bad.

As for Siberia... it'd be cold, but I think in the summer it would be a nice break from the cities! :D

Poutine is wonderful stuff! An affordable, filling heart-stopper of a guilty pleasure. If you get the chance, try and get some poutine somewhere in the countryside. The curds are a totally different experience - real, fresh, and squeak against your teeth. :)

Yeah I'm glad I went to Canada in the summer ^_^*. I'd like to go back. I would SOOO love to go to the winter olympics. They're on the side of canada that I'm closest to, but I'm so pissed off they won't make deals for Americans. As far as I understand, ALL foreigners have to purchase these special deals which are hundreds of dollars for a couple days. Gah. One of these days I'll make it to the olympics >_>. Maybe they'll have it in California again... lol. It happened once in the 60s!

Oliolio.

This be Jeff, and I'm a bit of a nomad across the US of A. Currently reporting from Greenville, SC, a place I look forward to being done with. You see, there are some places in this world that captivate you with their ways, make you never wish to leave. Greenville seems just the opposite.

I'm a lover of writing, music, gaming, philosophy, world history and a plethora of subgenres I can't be arsed to jot down all at once. I've mostly just lurked on this site for ages, but I joined tonight because I plan on seeing if there's anything I can do with that whole secret project schpiel.

I know dick about the Stargate series...Just randomly watched a bunch of SG-1 and some Atlantis...Stargate Universe, a new series I know extra nothing about, is apparently inspired by Firefly though, so it's gotta be at least a little cool!

Oh, and welcome, Jeff Zero! Does that mean you're Jeff without the calories...?
