Writer's Block: It worked for Norma Jeane

Norma Jeane Mortenson will always be remembered by her screen name, Marilyn Monroe. What stage name would you choose if you were an entertainer, and why?


I know I'm keeping my first name, because it's exotic, and unique(ish), and memorable. Last m=name, though, who knows? My current last name is a bit too drab, I think.

Лев и пегас - лев, царь зверей, с соответствующей царской грацией, ленью и мощью, с роскошной гривой, мудрым взглядом, мягкими широкими лапами; у пегаса сильные выносливые красивые крылья, которые смогут оторвать царя всего земного от земли и позволят насладиться свободой и тишиной небес.

Тигроном или лигром, потому что сегодня как раз написал про упоминающего их в текстах Муджуса, поставив сабжем цитату про них из фильма "Наполеон Динамит". А вообще не обращайте внимания на этот пост, просто тестирую новый тег <lj-like />.

Writer's Block: On a need to know basis

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

Probably hide it, for the betterment of the world of course. I wouldn't want my powers on display for everyone to know. It's also for the safety of the people I love. If there was one thing I wanted a guarantee of, it would be a make sure that my family members and friends are safe. 

The Super-hero genre is really piquing my interest right now.

If you were a cross-breed between two animals, what animals would they be, and why?

I would be a cross between a Great White Shark and a Turtle...I know it is a weird combination. I chose those two because they are my favorite animals. I don't know how that would look though. Maybe it would be a shark with a turtle shell or a turtle with a shark head or something like that.

Some things I think are best kept to themselves.

How often are the gifts, talents or trai ing of one person taken advantage of by others? Just ask a physician who's constantly asked in social settings for medical advice how she feels about it. Similarly, lawyers for legal questions while at the theater, the gym or the supermarket.

ЛетняЯ

Всем френдам и не только думать и читать. Главное - ВРАЗУМИТЬ ПОЛИ.Заранее спасибо.

Вот надело мне сегодня  доказывать кому-то что-то,  планируя ближайший отпуск ... 
И
подстраиваться под кого-то надоело...  Это и не вредно и не полезно, в моем случае. Кажется.
Я разозлилась  и едко-мило улыбаясь , сказала: ВСЁ, ЕДУ ОТДЫХАТЬ ОДНА!

Слышу  некоторые мнения:


-Поли, ты что, от всех отколоться решила?


-На кой тебе отдых  в Раше?

-Загнешься на второй день.

-На Черном – не отдых.

-Украдут или тебя или все остальное.

-Мы не в теме такого отдыха.

-Поли бесиццо, веселиццо?

Ну не слышат они меня! Не слышат, что  мне, трусихе,  красавчег-док сказал, что не лететь мне лучше самолетом  в ближайшее время  из-за обиженных ног. «Лучше танцуй» -  сказал он мне. Что я и делаю.

А я…Что я?! Хотела на Черное, но все же в Черногорию, Италию и  травиться быстро в Турцию  хотят!  

Разнесли  мою айди и меня...

Заявила твердо,  что еду одна.
Сказали, что зря. 
Задумалась вдруг…
А в самом же деле жутковато…
Хотя я и коммуникабельная, и правила личной  безопасности знакомы . НО…

Вот и вопросег: Ехать одной или нет в нашу Рашу на чернО  морЕ?

Опасно это или нет?

Вы бы меня одну отпустили, без присмотра?

Я ведь никогда одна отдыхать не ездила...

 


Плииииз, накидайте опыта, мнений, советов (прошенных мною всегда можно:))) Заранее ВСЕМ СПАСИБО!!!

Writer's Block: Taking it on the road

What was the longest road trip you ever went on? How did you pass the time?


I drove with my sister from Alberta to Nova Scotia and back. Since we were sharing the driving half and half, a good deal of my time was spent just watching the scenery. Another portion was spent actively navigating for us. We listened to music and sang along, and talked. I wrote, and read, and took pictures out the windows. A few times we made a game of spotting cars we kept passing over and over again at different intervals (there was one time where this pair of women from Manitoba ended up stopping at the same rest stops as us four times in a row and we all ended up laughing like idiots at each other when we ran into each other at the last one).


I'm used to long travel days; we've been doing long trips in the car since we were kids, so we've learned how to entertain ourselves well during the drives.

Writer's Block: Taking it on the road

What was the longest road trip you ever went on? How did you pass the time?

the longest road trip i ever went on was when my family and i drove from CT to FL. It was my mother, father, brother, brother's friend, a whole bunch of luggage and myself crammed into a small Honda Civic. In the back seat the seating arrangement went as follows. My brother, me, Bobby (my brother's friend). On the center console was a 12 inch television with a VCR. Me and my backseat companions were watching a movie called The Ring in hopes to pass the time. However, there was one part of the movie where the creepy zombie looking chick pulls an infinite piece of hair out of her throat while gagging it up. The sound of puking triggers my stomach and instantly makes me nauseous. I announced to the car that I was feeling sick to my stomach and then, sure enough, hurled all over my lap. While my disgusting regurgitation sat in my lap I continued to get sick into a McDonald's bag. . . Needless to say, the remanding 20 hours of that trip were hardly what I would consider pleasant.

NOTE TO SELF: Puke on the boys next time!

Writer's Block: On a need to know basis

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

I would hide the hell out of it.

Maybe this is because I just saw the new X Men flick (AWESOME) or maybe it's because I watched a lot of shows growing up that dealt with people getting powers.

Sharing them never works out. Ever. The government always wants to get you and you're under some obligation to be radically good or evil. There is no middle ground with super powers. 
 

I would so use my powers for some acts of good. I  would also, admittedly, use them for some very selfish acts. Mostly though I would just use it in my daily life and not really tell anyone that didn't need to know or wasn't living with me or super close to me and good at keeping their mouth shut. If word got out I'd only be using my powers to break out of the back of a black van before I disappear into a vast complex and spend the rest of my days getting injected and tested non-stop.

Writer's Block: Take me back

Is there any song that reminds you so much of an ex-partner that you can't stand to hear it? Details, please.

There are plenty of songs that remind me of exes, but none to the point I can't bear to listen to them. Of course, if I do hear them (which is generally often), then my mood will rapidly deteriorate and make me generally miserable. Two such songs being Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now) by Phil Collins and If You Still Believe from the game Legend of Dragoon. Love both songs, but can't exactly listen to them without tearing up a little, particularly from reminders of my second boyfriend.

(Who, ironically, I'm stuck thinking about right now. So this question seemed appropriate to answer.)

Writer's Block: On a need to know basis

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

I'd like the power to bestow healing, immortality or natural death on any person I choose. The latter would be a defense mechanism to be used against those that would, if they figured out my secret, try to torture immortality out of me. Bye f*cker. Grats on dying. I would not share it with the world, just those I felt were worthy of it. I'd rather not be carted away to a laboratory to be studied for all time.

If you were a cross-breed between two animals, what animals would they be, and why?

I would be a cross between a margay (arboreal cat species) and a kiwi bird. It would be the strangest thing you could ever witness... Like a gryffin, only ridiculous and not fierce at all.


Accomplishment of the day: I split my Archive Of Our Own (AO3) account into pseuds! So that should be useful. I have Dedicate Kiwicrocus for my Emelan stories and Kiwi Stubbly-Punk for my Harry Potter stories. (Please ignore the fanfic in Stubbly-Punk; I haven't started working on HP for AO3 yet.) (You are also entirely welcome to express amusement at the names.)

Left to do: Upload semi-final and final Circlecest stories to Dedicate Kiwicrocus; make it through the last bit of Emelan fanfic; finish Grey's Anatomy uploading (possibly another pseud but probably not since I don't intend to write more GA's); edit/upload Harry Potter fest fic; edit-to-the-bone/upload rest of HP fic; read through all shorter writing in my ridiculous writing folder; consider looking at old novels.

I think I'm going to have a heart attack when I look at how much I've written from March (dissertation) to now.

Today in Random: Mark needs to not touch me when I obviously don't want to be touched. (Here's the clue: "Mark, don't hug me." "Mark, don't hug me." "Mark stop hugging me!") He kissed my shoulder with his ill lips after I put up with his loud eating and completely unrelated stories. For something not completely different: I am a crankyface lately. I think I'm a little sick of people at the moment.

Which brings me to... Later there will be a 'this week in Kiwi' post about my week of travels. Now I need to go to sleep because tomorrow I bring my Dweeb of a brother into town and send him off Stateside. (I packed a bag full of my stuff for him to take home and I still have so much and aslkdjflasdjf *packing flail* but that is for another month.) Then Sailor Moon marathon at 2pm-ish because I am still 14 inside. I'm nearly over my obvious diseased-ness, too! My lip is nearly back to its correct shape and I'm just trying to heal past scabs now. I feel less like I need to be locked away; tomorrow I think I can go out without the face-mask. (:

Also: I am sorry for ignoring you and replacing you with Tumblr, LJ. I don't mean it. It's only indicative of my general attention span lately. I STILL LOVE YOU I PROMISE.

I would like to be a skunk-human, because I do love being a human, and I appreciate the skunk's beautiful black and white fur, it's nocternal life, and it's ability to defend itself with scent. I think our personalities would match pretty well.

Writer's Block: On a need to know basis

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

I would definitely hide any special power I had from the general populace. I've seen X-men. No, but really, I already feel different enough, like I never fit in, like I'm not normal. I definitely do not need anything to make me feel even more out of place. Though now that I think of it, hiding it wouldn't make it go away, but I could pretend.

Have you and/or your friends ever picked nicknames for people without their knowledge? What was the funniest, and why did you choose it?

Yes, there's this kid in my neighborhood who is about seventeen or so and he is always walking around the neighborhood.  My estimate is that he spends about 8 hours a day just walking by himself.  He always wears a white tee-shirt, I've honestly never seen him wear anything else, so I've been calling him "White Tee-shirt Dude" for about two years now.

Writer's Block: On a need to know basis

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

I would hide it because if I didn't I think people would brand me as a freak and I'd never have the choice of having a normal life. I mean, everywhere I went it would just be: "Oh, look! There's that weird girl with the super powers! Do you think she'll help me water my lawn (or some other boring task that she could do better because of her power)?" Right. That sounds wonderful. I couldn't really care less about the fame. I'd rather travel the world without people staring at me or whatever wherever I went, so I'd hide my power.

Writer's Block: On a need to know basis

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

That depends entirely on the nature of the power.  Some powers are more risky to share with the world than others, due to media saturation.  (Never tell people, say, that you can blow someone's head up with your thoughts.)

A power like healing I'd share with the world, though I would have to make clear from early on that I would not appreciate a rush on my time or energy.  Telepathy or other mind powers I'd try to conceal, to avoid mistrust.  Other abilities would be on a case-by-case basis - superhuman strength or speed would make me a legend, but the ability to spread disease would get me confined to a small plastic room for life.


Writer's Block: On a need to know basis

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

I think I'd keep it secret and use it to help people without them knowing it. I'm old school. If anyone knows you have some sort of power SOMEBODY is going to try and exploit it to line their own pockets. Jerks.

Nope I'd keep it secret.

Writer's Block: On a need to know basis

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

If I had a special power that could help people, I would definitely share it with the world.  Other people may benefit from my special power.  On the other hand, I guess it would also depend on what my special power is.  If it was something that could help me walk better without having to use crutches, I'd probably have to hang on to it for myself.

Writer's Block: On a need to know basis

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

Keep it under wraps. People tend to use people if they can do something for them, whether they need it or not. If I had the ability to help someone in need by way of a special power, I'd make very sure that they do indeed need my help, I'd then proceed forward and help, but that too would remain under wraps.

Have you and/or your friends ever picked nicknames for people without their knowledge? What was the funniest, and why did you choose it?

One Halloween, my cousin and two of our mutual friends went to a haunted house that was being held at a church near my house. When we went through it was the typical haunted housey stuff: people hiding in the shadows, monsters stalking you, and grotesque decorations. During a spot where there was a black light, there was this guy who was working in the house and he had on white shoes that stood out like a white dot on a black piece of paper. We decided to call him Shoes just because of his shoes.

If you could get your hands on a talent duplicator machine, whose talents would you want, and why?

As a fellow KPOP fan, I've always admired Lee Hyukjae and Lee Donghae's (super junior) dance and voice. They're what I call... irreplaceable talent. Their dance are suave, smooth, and just pure perfect. Hyukjae rap to the full content and Donghae's unique voice. 

Both talents are what I wish I had.... coming from a girl who does nothing but goes to school. LOL

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

     It sounds trite, but it's true. I would like to have the special power to open people's eyes to the beauty they have within, to the God-given talents they have. I think if each person saw their own uniqueness and beauty, and truly understood they were placed there out of love by the Creator of the Universe Himself, there would be a lot less crime and hate. Maybe none.

If I were a shapeshifter, I think the whole point would be to take advantage of it without anybody knowing.

That goes for just about any super power, really. Except maybe the "being a colossal attention whore" power, which makes publicly advertising it something of a given.

If you had a special power, would you hide it or share it with the world, and why?

If I had a special power I would hide it from the world because that much attention is unhealthy for anyone. It drives fear, greed, jealousy and causes too many problems.

that doesn't mean I would squander the power, I would use it everyday to help out those whom I can, since life has a tendency to introduce me to those I can help and those who can help me. Brilliant stuff all around, life.

P.S. I have special powers.
