|Nitina the Pig|
Για σας ολοι και καλοσηρθατε!
Hello everyone! I'm a small pink fluffy flying pig who is keen on sleep, food and likes to keep herself clean by taking lots of showers (honestly).
In real life, I am a just-graduating university student of French and German in Manchester and I live here with my husband, OwlofDoom. Manchester is known as the rainiest city in England and is home to the Manchester United football club, indie music, and Coronation Street, which is filmed at Granada Studios. My course at uni has taught me a great deal, such as developing good writing and oral skills, dealing with different translation materials and gave me the opportunity to spend one year in France and Germany.
Languages - Well I can speak five: English (my first language), Greek, Armenian, French and German. I come from a polyglot background so I have a tendency to pick up new languages really quickly. I also take a large interest in the grammar and syntax of languages and the differences between them.
Indie, rock, dance music - Some of my favourite bands are Ash, Muse, Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers, Red Hot Chilli Peppers. When it comes to dancing, I also enjoy moving to the rhythms of Merengue and Cumbia. Anyone interested in having a dancing partner?
OwlofDoom - OwlofDoom is my husband! We got legally married (hooray!) and this summer we are having a big church wedding in Cyprus. Thanks to him, I found true happiness, in spite of all the pain I had to go through in my previous relationships. Oh well, at least it was worth the wait! . If you want to learn more about me and OwlofDoom, here is the link to his website.
Computers - I love surfing around the 'Net, learning new programming languages and web design. At the moment, I am creating my own personal website, which hopefully will look good and professional. I am using CSS to code it, much better than HTML in my opinion. In the future, I would like to combine my languages with computing, perhaps by doing a research degree in Natural Language Processing, in human-computer interaction or in languages.
Wotsits - I am addicted to Wotsits! They just have to be the best ever invention when it comes to snacking. I love all cheesy stuff, you see, except cheesy music.
Going out / meeting new people - I consider myself to be very friendly and sociable (so I was told) and enjoy going out with friends and meeting new people whenever I get the chance. I don't have a problem whatsoever with starting conversations with people I have never met and try to make them feel at ease. I also love organising parties and make sure everyone is happy at all times!
Cyprus, My Home Country!
Well, I'm the girl from Cyprus (probably the only one on this site), a small island in the eastern mediterranean sea.
I was born and raised in Cyprus and come from a mixed marriage. My father is Greek-cypriot and my mother is Armenian; while I was a child, I was brought up with 3 languages. My hometown is Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus.
Cyprus is divided into two parts, the Turkish-occupied north and the Greek side due to the war in 1974 when the Turks occupied the north. It has a population of about 780,000 and the official language is Greek. It used to be a British colony so English is spoken by most cypriots and road signs and names of shops are in both languages. People drive on the left. The weather is amazing, by the way! Sunny and warm most of the year.
I also lived in the States for a while (in California) due to my dad's studies, and have travelled to many countries in Europe.
My Personal Life
I can only say one thing - it is perfect! I am married to the right person and couldn't be happier about it. We share all the same morals and views on relationships and on life. We met each other during my second year at university in England through some friends and have been inseparable ever since. My past personal life was full of heartache, as I met all the wrong people and got really hurt by two of them. I thought I would never find the right person, but now I have!
|I don't dislike this|
- Rude people
- People who 'play it cool'
- Washing clothes
- Two-faced people
I became a sub-editor two weeks after I registered on the site. I love doing the job and applying my knowledge of English to correct other people's mistakes. I just wish I could do it also in German and French... oh well.

My new personal space complete!
Jun 6, 2003
I've just finished my new personal space! I think it's more interesting than the last one, because it has more information about me, my interests and my country.
I've gone for the "sparse but pretty" look, with only a couple of pictures. It's best viewed in Brunel, but I think it looks good in Goo too.
Let me know what you think!

A pig entry!

Well I have decided, as a cute little pig that I am, to write my first entry on pigs. But better do some research first...
Owl and I got married yesterday!!!
May 18, 2003
Yesterday was a very special day for me and Owl because it was our wedding day! We got married in the registry office where we were surrounded by our closest friends and Owl's family. Now we both got a ring on our fingers, and I couldn't be happier having Owl as my husband! This is the first of three weddings that we are having. The civil wedding we just had was mainly for legal reasons, then we are having a Greek, and a Church of England wedding, both in Cyprus(where I come from). Our church wedding will be our most important wedding! For full details on our civil wedding , go to http://www.owlsound.co.uk/me/blog.php?no=99

Just been to see 'The Ring' at the cinema, and still shaking heh. No, but seriously, it is the scariest movie I have seen in the last 10 years . It is the american remake of the original japanese movie 'Ringou'.I haven't seen the japanese one myself, but I have been told that it is scarier(Don't want to know). I found the remake to be very good in terms of imagery, the actual plot, sound etc... As I can't really compare it to the original, i have to give it a 4/5. I do strongly suggest though that you do not see this movie on video as it will scare the hell out of you. However, if you are seeing it at the cinema, make sure you take your boyfriend with you, or anyone who allows you to cuddle up to them.
This film is not for the weak-hearted!
Now back to my work!
Feb 21, 2003
Well last night was quite fun! My mother-in -law came to visit me and Owl in our flat, since she was in Manchester for the day on business. Then, we all decided to go to Pizza Express to have a pizza hehe!
It's me and Owl's favourite pizza restaurant. After we finished eating, we walked my mother-in-law back to Piccadily train station, where she had to take her train to go back.
Being unpredictable and spontaneous, I suddenly had the urge to go the cinema. I suggested it to Owl, who wasn't very keen on the thought of going last night, but did anyway cos he loves me sooo much hehe(same here of course). We went to see a 3-D movie in the Imax theatre of the Filmworks. The film was so amazing. It was called 'Cyberworld', and even had Homer Simpson lost in a 3D world. Must see another one soon again
