Thanks for visiting my blog and for the compliment, Spinning Girl. Are you Estonian?
Never thought that 'asjaajaja' is funny, but trying to look at it from Anglophone perspective now, it probably is:)
It's not strictly 'manager', as it translates roughly 'someone organising/doing things', so it can be a PA, manager, secretary or anything similar.

Tere Pille,
jah, olen Eestlane. I tried to find an easy word to define "asjaajaja", but I realize there is no direct translation, just as there isn't for "ju".
I'll keep checking on your blog from time to time!
