    Just a couple phrases

    I have a Russian "friend" who sends me messages in English & Russian. I just need these few translated:

    "spokoinoi nochi malishka"

    "ya otsen zla na tebya sasha"

    "ya tebya lyublyu anastacia"

    I can read the basic russian alphabet so I could figure these out but my grammar is really lacking.

    I'm also wondering, are there any other words besides "красивый" that mean handsome/sexy/hot/good-looking? Thanks for your help.

    Спокойной ночи, малышка = Good night, baby
    Я очень зла на тебя, Саша = I'm very angry with you
    Я тебя люблю, Анастасия = I love you

    handsome/sexy/hot/good-looking = Милый, прикольный симпатичный, сексуальный, прекрасный, замечательный, хорошенький

    Just a hunch, but I don't think I'd walk up to (or do the "virtual" online equivalent to that) some stranger and call them "сексуальный." I'm not sure about хорошенький -- it sounds innocent to me, but one of the defs from lingvo is a "pin-up." The rest, though, are pretty mild AFAIK (stuff like dear/wonderful/cool/nice/outstanding).
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    In this context "хорошенький" means good-looking or even sexy-looking.

    Saying to someone that he is хорошенький is about the same as saying "he sure is a hunk". Just be careful in using it. Actually, don't use it at all, leave to young girls.

    прикольный = fun to be with (slang, not applicable for using in a conversation with i.e. your teacher... unless that was a school task to use this word... which I doubt)

    прекрасный: handsome, beautiful
    замечательный: I would say "wonderful"

    Who is arguing with a dictionary? I just gave my best guesses on the adjectives provided. I am not a dictionary last time I checked !

    I was drunk last night when he phoned me and I used the сексуальный one. He seemed to appreciate the complement?

    well considering it was 2:30 am and he was 20 miles away, I don't think it was possible. But he did ask me out for Sunday.
