Re: Которая водка естб лучная для вечеринку?

I can't advise you a good vodka, but I can advise you what you can eat with it in mind. Pickled herring, pickles, BBQ-ed meat in smaller pieces (Шашлык) (any, but bird), canapé (small square sandwiches, no more than 4x4 sm) with salami or fish. Sushi goes too; pizza, pasta or burgers don't, Dried sa...

Re: Russian Color Culture

Well, I dunno, look at museums or palaces - almost each of them is yellow/white. White might be a tribute to the ancient color of any marble column, but yellow... I don't really know. The commonplace architecture here was made during the Union, and there were few arts on the walls, like, a huge pain...

Re: Idioms Russian to English, English to Russian

Not quite. More like "I'm done with this".
However, "I'm fed up" does have an equivalent, and that would be "Я сыт по горло [существительное в творительном падеже (with something)]".

Re: Old Russian greeting and religious sign of respect

Nothing to apologise for, people have different interests in a field :D The phrase is " Челом бьём " (plural). Old Russian indeed, means "(we are) hitting (the floor) with our foreheads (as we address you)". Not quite a sign of respect, rather a humble request to look into the co...

Re: Help Translating what I found ,

That's a powderbox. No price is given, other than that - looks like a genuine handwritten Russian. Old stuff, or, at least, an old receipt, can be traced back to the USSR times, as there is a РСФСР tag - Russian part of the Union. The paper isn't dated, the only date recognisable is 2006.
