One phone call...  
So, I've gotten pretty used to handling the phone calls from work. Even though it's technically one of my duties to answer the phone, I've always considered it a distraction from my real work (read: writing). I've finally gotten used to people calling in to ask information that would be easily available if they'd just open one of our papers for once--though this is excused for PR reps who live several states away--but today I had possibly the most annoying phone call ever. The person, who apparently couldn't be bothered to look through our classified listings, wanted me to go find her a list of property sales, which was easy since they were all conveniently labeled "Real Estate Transactions," though apparently she was unable to comprehend such an esoteric labeling system. When I found her the information, she wasn't patient enough to wait for the page to load, so she asked me to fax it to her. When the fax didn't go through, she called back and asked me to do it again. I managed to get her e-mail address, and e-mailed it to her. Her reply was "THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME" *sigh*

I've been obsessively listening to the song below. Unfortunately, it's of dubious provenance. I know it's in Russian, and the place I've found it from has a translation of the lyrics, but since it's not the official translation I have no idea if it's right, nor can I use those lyrics to find the original. Searching for the title doesn't really bring up anything either (except a Russian piano player's website).

Only three weeks left until the wedding...

Your LJ came up when I, myself, was looking for a translation to that song! I found the song through the music video also, and it's just so beautiful. I know that the artist posted the English lyrics there, but I've been looking for the English-fied Russian (like Romanji with Japanese), but can't find it anywhere =/ I'm pretty sure the English translation is correct, since the artist themself speaks Russian (I'm pretty sure because the intro, if you noticed, on the AMV is mostly in Russian). I'll let you know if I can find any other lyrics ^_^

That'd be great! I'd love to have another source other than "this one dude on the Internet" for them. :)

It took awhile but I was able to figure everything out ^_^; I found a site where the Russian lyrics were, I don't remember if I got them from you or a search, but I translated it into 'English-ese' and I think it sounds pretty close? I'm not sure what the apostrophe's mean, but that's what the letters meant. Then I took the lyrics from the creator of the AMV and looked at those and ran the Russian lyrics through a translator and kinda wrote the translation from those two, so it's slightly different from the one one AMV.org. Here it is ^_^;
