    Theseus, απο την Πόλη έρχομαι και στην κορφή κανέλα is what you say when someone talks nonsense, because the first part of the phrase does not match the second.

    I thought I had said that, SBE. And I provided sarant's explanation to boot. I should have specified that it meant particularly nonsense/inconsequential ramblings.
    BTW, 'Man. That Erotokritos user cross link is just what I wanted! Further, is 'Σίμωνα' 'a hearth cat' as well as γατάκι της στάχτης?
