I have this super important job interview today, I am underprepared and probably gonna be late (because I will be doing a presentation in the university job fair). And I have no idea how to pronounce entrepreneur in English??? Is it like untr-preNOORE? It sounds so wrong.

That moment when you’re sexually deprived enough to consider a thing with a person you rejected a while ago, only to meet them and remember all the reasons why you rejected them in the first place.

Do you like kabob? Which kabob do you like? Chicken kabob? Beef kabob? Lamb kabob? Do you like kabob?

I don’t think there’s anyone that lives in or has visited Greece and doesn’t like kabob (or as we call it, pita sandwich). I prefer my pita with chicken-bacon souvlaki (which means solid bites of chicken each wrapped in bacon), veggies, fries and cream cheese sauce or tzatziki. We don’t have lamb and beef kebab in Greece, only chicken and pork kebab (and we use either kebab or souvlaki for the pita sandwich). Well, maybe in ethnic cuisine restaurants, but definitely not in the super-common fast food restaurants that are everywhere. (And I don’t live in the capital, so no fancy ethnic food for me.)

However, if I had to give up kebab forever in place of falafel sandwich, I would do it in a heartbeat.
