    £40 an hour

    to have sb say:


    It sounds bleak.

    That is a very difficult period for you.

    It is a difficult time.

    You must feel lonely, then.

    Understandable.


    and still it doesn’t feel like a waste of time or money.


    hmm…

    And of course, I had to go look what bleak means in Magenta...

    bleak:

    αποθαρρυντικός
    αυστηρός ή εξαιρετικά απλός
    γυμνός
    δωρικός (???WTF???)
    εκτεθειμένος & ανεμοδαρμένος (bleak heights δηλαδή?)
    κρύος
    ψυχρός & χωρίς καλοσύνη

    και...


    wait for it...



    Ψάρι ποταμών alburnus lucidus!


    Άρα η τύπισσα ήθελε να πεί "Μου ακούγεται σαν ψάρι ποταμών alburnus lucidus! Χμμμ, μάλλον είναι πιο σοβαρό από ότι φανταζόμασταν..."

    Definately not a waste of money then!

    Καλημέρα :)

    Does "sb" stand for somebody?

    1 cold, empty and not welcoming or attractive
    2 If a situation is bleak, there is little or no hope for the future
    (Cambridge, screw magenta)
    There they also spell definItely.

    sb stands indeed for somebody

    40 an hour is not at all bad

    reminds me of this by Alanis Morissette:

    "you know, i pay him $75 an hour; sometimes it feels like highway robbery and sometimes it's peanuts - i wish it could last a couple more hours"
