Czilla, that was such an interesting post. I have never been to Russia, but what you say is characteristic of all of Dostoyevsky's characters. :p
Perhaps that sheds light on why they excel so much in all the performing arts and many sports...ballet, opera, tennis, etc...is it because they go at it full force?

I had one glamorous Russian friend who went back to Moscow; she was glamorous through and through; rich, tall, blonde and beautiful, she wore nothing but high end designer and sashayed down the street talking in a loud, domineering voice as if she owned the entire town, what a character!! She never asked, said, or told: she demanded. Actually she was quite lovable and sweet though, I miss her.

ok, this may be a little off-topic, but many of the Russian women here in SF still dress like its 1982 (and I'm sure most of them have been living in the states for some time now). I can always spot a Russian woman by her overprocessed hair, (often worn with a large puffy clip-on bow), too-tight pants, nylons in the summer (sometimes worn with sandals, UNDER the too-tight pants), fluffy pastel cowl-neck sweaters, and topped off with heavy makeup (in lovely pastel shades) and heavy perfume. Oh, and let's not forget the '80s blouson-style leather coat...

this sounds bad, I know...but I can spot them a mile away. and the thing I don't get is that there are so many gorgeous Russian models that they can use as inspiration RIGHT THERE in the magazines next to the check-out line at Safeway. why can't they leave the '80s behind? i don't get it.

gawd awful. what are these women thinking?

faust: "but that's a learning curve which I think Russians are zooming through quite quickly" I don't know about that. I live in SF and the Russian women that have been here since the '80s still dress that way. I think they think its pretty.
