Yanka, До уборки все вещи валялись на своем месте; после нее все стало аккуратно лежать фиг знает где. Before tidying up, all my things were lying scattered about in their proper place; afterwards, everything was neatly arranged hell knows where. ******************************* Если то, что можно сделать завтра, отложить на послезавтра, то получится два выходных дня. If what I can do tomorrow, I put off until the day after, I will have two days free. (то, что = what) Putting off till the day after, what can be done tomorrow, results in two free days. *************** Есть такие люди, к которым хочется подойти, взглянуть в глаза, обнять за плечи и ласково спросить: «Как ты живешь без мозгов?» There are people who I want to go up to, look into their eyes, hug them, and ask gently, “How do you live without a brain?” (whom I came up to is formal)

Before cleaning, all my things were scattered around but in their places; now, after it, everything neatly lies nobody knows where. If you put off something that you can do tomorrow till the day after tomorrow, you’ll have two days off. There are such people to whom you want to come up, look into their eyes, hug them and ask them gently: “How do you live without a brain?”
