Ive-us-gay our essings-blay

I go to a Planet Fitness uptown from my apartment (I like using New York terminology for Moscow). I distract myself so easily -- I just started thinking about How I Met Your Mother. Anyway.

This Planet Fitness is located next door to a small church with an active membership; I always see veruiushchie babushki coming and going and crossing themselves, and from its loudspeakers an Orthodox chant pretty constantly emits.

Every time I hear it, a different song starts in my head.

Eeee-yeyyyy-yeeeeezzzzuuuuu doooooomine -- donnnaaa eis requiiieeeem THWAP

Russian Word of the day:

veruiushchaia babushka - religious grandma
