How are they special?

They look like balls or patties, there is stuffing of cheese inside.

That sounds good, I find some meats and cheeses go well together.

My sister sends them, they are a delicacy but I am just a meat and potatoes guy. I fry them up because I fry everything.

I always throw a lot of vegetables in there. I threw in plenty of green peppers and plenty of broccoli. Now I am going to eat them and watch a movie, see you later.

Hi;

You were watching her in A Beautiful Mind.

Oh yes, Alicia Nash...

Supposedly adriana watches that film (or Good Will Hunting) once a week. That is a lot, for one film...

Usually when somebody likes a film they have a more personal reason than they like to watch math movies. What do you think it is?

I am not sure. Have you seen Good Will Hunting?

Hi;

No, I have not. Maybe she is interested in someone in the movie?

It stars Robin Williams, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon.

While on the subject of it she said she always wanted to meet a mathematician like me who 'loves to prove/investigate stuff in their free time'... maybe she is hoping to find someone like Matt Damon in the movie, which doesn't really make sense because I am nothing like him and I'm not anything special in my opinion, and there are also probably better mathmos at her school. (They are female, and should appeal to her more.)

She sure is a strange duck.

Yep, she is strange. Approaching 10 days since I have heard from her, stark contrast to "I'll surprise contact you on holiday", she is too busy posing with her BF it seems.

That will keep her busy. What does this guy look like?

**zetafunc.****Guest**

Looks taller, and a few years older than me. Fairly good-looking, but it's only really his face and shoulders in the photo with adriana so it's hard to tell much more.

Hmmm, her arms are around him?

His arms are around hers, and their foreheads are touching, both smiling at the camera.

So this is the guy she was breaking up with. Why is he in Cyprus anyway?

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**zetafunc.****Guest**

Well, his name is Greek and it says he went to school in Cyprus so I am guessing he is from there and living there.

Why is she in London then?

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**zetafunc.****Guest**

She says her parents grew up over here (the house I went to), and she was born here too. She is British. So probably just a consequence of her parents being here.
