Have you ever been betrayed by a friend or partner who asked for forgiveness? Were you able to forgive and/or forget? What was the result?
Let me put it this way:

He hasn't asked for forgiveness yet. If he does, I will be able to forgive him immediately, although I will demand that he prove he deserves forgiveness. I cannot forget what he did. I pray to Odin and Freyja (because they'd pay the most attention to my prayers on this matter) that the result will be what I've wanted for the past nine weeks and will continue to want for most likely the next twelve weeks at the least.

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

I'd probably will hide it. People nowadays are scary. There are some who take advantage of the good in every being while there are some who judge people and treat them as if they're not part of this world. It's just not safe anymore. Teehee. (As if I had a special power. :P)

Forgive... we strive to.
Forget... some wounds drive very deep. The issue is trust. Betrayal is the obliteration of TRUST. How do you re-establish trust? Especially if you cannot even state the issues you had the with person openly; if you are expected to always be the one to take the blame for situations that are created by two or more people? And if communication is the issue, how in the world do you fix that? Lack of trust combined with lack of proper communication is a nasty mess to sort out, be it one between friends or partners.

In my case, it was a friend - a very dear friend. And it hurt very, very deeply. I've never hurt so much as the day she betrayed me; or rather the day she added the straw that broke the camel's back. I pulled away and haven't been able to stand the thought of trying to bridge the gap, afraid that I would be slapped back or that nothing would change. It's unbearable really when I think about it. So I don't think about it, or rather I make a point to keep it out of mind. When the memories do boil to the surface, I try to remember the good things - always the good things. But still, I can't forget why I pulled away.

Have I forgiven her? I don't know. But will I forget? I can't. What does that mean? I haven't unravelled the answer to that questionn yet.

Было такое и не раз. Всегда прощала. Хотя бывали моменты, когда думала, что простить "такое" невозможно. Такая особенность характера. Как ты меня не унизь...назавтра я отнесусь беззлобно и постараюсь сама оправдать тебя в моих глазах. Единственное, что может измениться - отношение к человеку. 
Вообщем, не умею я долго обижаться, но все запоминаю и переживаю чрезвычайно эмоционально..

У людей нет таких способностей и быть не должно, и слава богу.

Я уверен что у каждого в жизни случаются ситуации когда просто хочется остаться одному, на целом свете. такие способности не принесут ничего хорошего, сделав что-то единожды, переделать это еще раз не выйдет, даже если настроение поменяется.

Будь у меня такие способности я бы сделал все что бы от них избавится. вспомните, каждому в детстве говорили, кто сильнее, или старше, тот и виноват. Не уследил, не помог, не предотвратил.

Honestly, I don't know if i can call it betrayal. i have this set of girl friends who i used to hang out during my grade 9 year but when we reached the 10th grade, i had this classmate of mine who was newly close to my girl friend who is my classmate too. then i said something and that something was exaggerated and i couldn't believe that my so called best friend believe her newly close friend over me. and the thing is, i can't forget it. it always rewind in my mind of what kind of friend I am. With that fight, many issues float in the air. That i was bossy, they;re force to do things when Im around and they're much free after I leave the group. After the good times you shared you hear those words, HOW WOULD YOU FUCKING FEEL? you know guys this happened about a 2 years ago. I'm 2ndyear college now but still I can't forget the feeling. We'll maybe I wasn't a great friend to them, but i can't understand they stood by me before those times, just maybe they found new set of friends to replace they're bossy freaking friend. yah right. i can't force them and i won't let them affect my life. duhh. its they're lost, not mine. there may be the 3 of them but I stand alone and that's what makes me  stronger than ever.

Прощала. Потому что слишком любила. Когда-то терпение лопнуло. Расстались.В итоге - лишь спустя два с лишним года после расставания поняла, что любила до сих пор. Хотя была не одна давно. Однако и любовь проходит... Не так давно освободилась от неё. Теперь счастлива с тем, кто не придаёт и не обманывает. Только вот сама взяла от бывшего не самое лучшее...

Did you have a favorite stuffed animal, action figure, or doll growing up? If so, what was it and what happened to it?


This is a tough one to answer. I've always been a stuffed animal person. I still have them. As a kid, I couldn't have enough of them. In fact, they were all special to me. Not sure I could ever pick one.

I did have a blanket I slept with until just before my teens. Not embarrassed to admit this. It was a security I needed in a very turbulent household. I still slept with it...as it was on my bed. Nearby my pillow I think...until it was nothing more than a ratty clump of yarn. My great grandmother had someone make it for me, so it was special. Now it's in a plastic zip-lock baggy in my childhood mementos box.

As for stuffed animals, there are a few I haven't been able to part with. I had a dog train conductor that my mother said a friend gave to me. I don't remember this, but he's in several pictures from my childhood and even a studio portrait, so he was special to me once.

I also loved my Benji stuffed toy. I took him to school one day and dropped him in a mud puddle at recess. I was so sad and he was never quite the same after the ride in the washing machine.

I had a Scooby Doo stuffed toy that I remember loving. That was my favorite cartoon as a kid.

Today, I am obsessed with build-a-bear. My roommate tells me I have an unnatural addiction. She posted on my Facebook that she knows the bears come alive when we are both gone and terrorize my cat and that's why she's so neurotic.

Занятный вопрос, обычно "предатели" не сознают, что совершают "предательство". С их точки зрения поступок, который воспринимается как предательство, объясним очень вескими причинами, и вполне логичен. Вероятно ли, что у "предателя" когда-нибудь наступит разочарование в своих действиях? Что вескость причин пошатнется, и логика поступка будет уже не столь очевидной? Что он признает ошибку, причем ошибку, принесшую боль и разочарование другому человеку? Маловероятно, но бывает, бывает.

В моей жизни было такое.
Сначала предательство. На ровном месте. Молодой человек зачеркнул два месяца наших отношений ради призрачной надежды на возобновление старой любви. До сих пор не понимаю, как можно даже сравнивать давно истлевшее чувство с живым, трепетным, честным, растущим?

Через полгода пройдя все круги загробной жизни по второму или третьему кругу, он осознал, что потерял. Просил выслушать, дать возможность выговориться, писал абсолютно тупые и одновременно правильные смс-ки "я дурак, прости", предлагал вернуться в прошлое, и даже замуж предлагал... Да только нет у меня машины времени, чтобы все начать оттуда, откуда все пошло наперекосяк.

Мы изредка общаемся, но я ничего к нему не чувствую. Вряд ли это значит "простила".

Да. Такой случай был. Я простила. Меня предали опять. Из этого сделала вывод - предательство прощать нельзя. Сказано - единожды продав...Но для таких людей есть отличное лекарство - жестоко отомстить. Это позволяет опять с уважением думать о себе. Потому что если тебя предали, ты простил, тебя предали опять - это над тобой посмеялись. Ха-ха, вот дурак(дура) а мы-то умные. Умные? Хорошо смеется тот, кто смеется последний...

Have you ever been betrayed by a friend or partner who asked for forgiveness? Were you able to forgive and/or forget? What was the result?


I've had really bad luck with friends in the past. Not sure if I would say they betrayed me, but for some reason or another we ended up ending our friendship.

I don't think anyone has actually apologized and wanted to be friends again, though.

I had one instance in college where someone I considered a friend wanted to get answers from a homework assignment. I refused and she never spoke to me again.

In another case, when I was into other fandoms, I made a lot of acquaintances (friends, but not sure they really were). We all ended up hurting each other. I left the group very unhappy and I felt sort of betrayed and a lot like they had all abandoned me. I was very careful for many years after who I made friends with on the internet. It's kind of a lesson learned thing. So not all bad.

I did apologize to some for some of my crazier behavior and shortly afterward I left that group. I figured it was good karma and clean slate stuff.

And when I was much younger (about 10 or so) one of my friends accused me of betraying her. She would never tell me what I'd done. At the time, I didn't know what it meant to betray someone, so I was always confused. I never did find out and am still wondering to this day. Plus, she never told me to my face. She would elude to it or other people we knew would refer to it. No one ever said, "You betrayed her" or "You betrayed me." What can I say, kids.

Funny how this question was brought up. I've encountered this recently... I was not able to forgive or forget what happened. I still gave them a chance but the pain stays, scars still remain. Every night I think about what I did wrong that made them do it. I would ask myself if there was something that I wasn't able to provide that they would search it from someone else. I asked if I was good enough. It's probably obvious, that it wasn't my fault at all but I can't help think that way. We're still together but I just feel empty. I'm no longer my old self and I'm so hurt. Recently I've been trying to search answers to questions that I don't even know about. I guess that sounds stupid... I'm just wounded and lost. No longer an oyster with no meat or pearl, I am but an empty shell.

I'm gullible. I can't get rid of thought that everyone at their base is a good/redeemable person. As a result I tend to get stepped on a lot. I've been betrayed pretty bad more than once. I always eventually forgive because I don't need to carry that crap around but I never forget, which pretty much means "I forgive you, but I don't think we can be friends anymore." i can forgive them for what they have done but that doesn't mean i have to continue our relationship

Did you have a favorite stuffed animal, action figure, or doll growing up? If so, what was it and what happened to it?


Yes, I did. It's a stuffed animal of Lucky from the Disney movie 101 Dalmatians. I don't even remember the movie, but I do remember seeing Poltergeist when I was five, and it gave me nightmares for weeks before I went to Disneyland with my parents, and they bought me Lucky. I went to sleep with him that night, and my nightmares from Poltergeist stopped.

I still have Lucky. In fact, he's sitting on my desk, looking at me now. His fur is pretty threadbare, and he's an entirely different color than he was when he was purchased (actually, I found a duplicate of him a couple years ago, and I bought it, so now I can see just exactly how much he's changed). But, despite being nearly 25, yes, I still have my favorite stuffed animal, and I intend to keep him for the rest of my life.

Yes; I will never forgive her. I never want to see her ever again. She can never be a part of my life again, not after all of that stuff.
I can't "forget" because every time I meet someone new, every time I find myself forming a friendship, I hesitate and second-guess myself because of what happened with her. That's good and bad, on the one hand it's good to be cautious and question people, but it's also a fine line between logical carefulness and trust issues.

I have been, in my eyes, betrayed by a friend. It was a long drawn out matter that I won't get into but they did ask for forgiveness. The fact that they came to me and asked for forgiveness I was able to forgive them. Forgetting is a trickier situation.

Have you ever been betrayed by a friend or partner who asked for forgiveness? Were you able to forgive and/or forget? What was the result?


Yeah, I've been betrayed by many people in my life that asked for forgiveness. For some, forgiving them was quite easy, but for others, the pain that they caused still lingers and that in itself keeps me from forgiving them at all. For those that I was able to forgive, I never forget what they did; but I look past it and try my best not to dwell on it, thus moving forward in my life.

The result in the end is that I like to forgive, but I will never forget what those that have done me wrong have done.

I've never done anything like this before so I figured that it would nice to start off using one of the templates.
When I was younger, I ALWAYS had a beanie baby with me. It usually didn't matter which one it was as long as I had it in my hands. My favorite one of all time (and that I still keep in bed with me) is Nanuk the huskie dog. He wasn't the itty bitty sized beanie baby, he was huge in my eyes. He is about the size of a Pomeranian and I have him wedged in-between my bed and my night stand so that I can place my cell phone in-between his front paws.
When I was younger, I took Nanuk everywhere with me. The mall, the beach, on a camping trip. It didn't matter where I was going. He was the first thing I packed for a trip and the first thing I grabbed when I was running out the door... Then puberty came and with it the feelings of embarrassment at the fact that I still kept a stuffed animal with me. It was bad enough that I still had to use a nightlight, but then I also kept Nanuk with me at all times. It was then that I started leaving him at home.
Nanuk is still there for me through everything. He has gone through every breakup. Dried up every tear. He has been the one thing that, in a life full of gray areas, I know

Со мной случилась однажды немного странная история. Только не у меня просили прощения, а я.

Я была действительно очень виновата перед моей подругой. Допустим, Таней. Скверная история. Позвольте мне не рассказывать, что там произошло.

Я долго мучилась. Думала, как бы найти подходящий момент, чтобы попросить прощения. Решила сходить на разведку к другой, нашей общей подруге. Допустим, Лене. И вот, прихожу к Лене и совершенно неожиданно встречаю там Таню. Короче, я немного растерялась. Смогла сказать только: "Извини, мне очень жаль". И что вы думаете? Она мне тут же ответила: "Все хорошо. Раз ты извинилась, нет больше никаких проблем". Я просто обалдела. Ожидала, что мне придется долго что-то объяснять, а тут - раз - и никаких проблем. С тех пор прошло уже лет 15. Таня ни разу не вспоминала о той скверной истории.

Это и есть настоящая подруга. Я ей сделала очень плохо. Но стоило мне извиниться, она тут же все простила, и ни разу больше об этом не вспомнила. Я это очень ценю. И подлых поступков себе больше не позволяю.

I had Barbies. My Father humiliated me into selling the house and the clothes in it at a garage sale. Later, to my grief, I discovered the knitted Barbie ball gown my Mother made and the two outfits I bought with my own money, Arabian Nights and Guinevere were in there too. To this day I haven't been able to assembly a complete set of either. The ball gown is irreplaceable.

When I was very little my Mother said my favorite toy was a stuffed snowman. I still have it. I don't remember playing with it but my Mother saved that and eventually gave it to me.

I wasn't going to answer this, but once I read it I couldn't get it back out of my head. Hopefully answering will make it go away.

Yes this has happened, in the worst of ways. Trust and safety are such a huge thing for me and when they're broken it feels like a part of me has died. I always feel like I'm somewhere on the edge of tipping into bitter coldness and each time this happens I get a little closer.

The last time this happened, I uh... It's so hard for me to write people off or not give them another chance. I'm not just talking about the first time... but every time. Doesn't matter if it's happened once or a hundred times I just can't shut them out. That's part of why when relationships end in my life it's always the other person leaving.

I don't make friends easily. I open up too much and well I have too many traits and habits that need fixing. Still, I don't think that's why I can't let go. I spent over half my life with one or two friends (if that many). I know I am fine on my own.

Still, I have trouble staying angry. First of all it's not in my nature. More than that though, I'm always scared to be mad. Like if I stay mad people will just give up. I'd rather put my own feelings and emotions aside and deal with the pain then make them accountable.

So when this happened again and the person didn't even appear to be trying to salvage the friendship, I seriously had to question if it was worth the pain. I never do that, but this time I did. I'm not stronger, it was just different. I can't explain how much it hurt and it seemed like the more I tried the more they withdrew. So yeah, I sucked it up and let all the bad stuff go. I don't know if this will end up hurting me more in the end, but as much as it still hurts I guess I'm sticking by my decision...

Меня предавали. И не раз. И я обманывала. И не раз. И поняла я одно: обман - он как вода. Рано или поздно он просачивается через время. Живя во лжи - ты разрушаешь себя сам. А когда тебе врут - ты тоже начинаешь распадаться. Становишься подозрительной, нервной истеричкой. Не стоит падать, господа. Держите голову выше.

Have you ever been betrayed by a friend or partner who asked for forgiveness? Were you able to forgive and/or forget? What was the result?

 Yup, I have. I have been several times. And, this much i've learned.

When you forgive you put it where it belongs in God's hands
Forgetting is when you let go and realize it's not worth being mad over and you are forgiving yourself . Meaning we all kick our own butts for not "knowing" what was going to happen. So when we realize we can  forget we are letting it go... Make sense?

And here are the results

Friends lost some still have some still love the ones I have and the ones I lost

In the era of popular "Pound Puppy" toys, there came Pound Kitties--at least, I think that's what it was. Anyway, it was a tabby cat with sad eyes. I named her Morgan. She was my best friend until I was like 6... and then something terrible happened! (Is the woe broadcasting properly?)

My mom was ill. I wanted to be nice. The rosebush was blooming beautifully, so I picked a bunch of blossoms... I got caught mid-flower picking and instead of seeing the innocence behind it all, all that could be seen was the destruction. My dad whooped my butt with his horse training whip and when I protested, took my Morgan and ripped her head off at her pretty red ribbon collar. Stuffing flew around the room. I was devastated and traumatized.

Вопрос дня: Обмани меня

Я думаю, предательство, совершенное раз редко заканчивается на этом. Конечно, любовь позволяет многое терпеть, но это уже и не любовь тогда получается. Разве можно назвать любовью не взаимное чувство? Невозможно делать больно любимому человеку, также как невозможно вернуть те светлые чувства, которые этим были разрушены. Ведь разбитая чашка так и будем чашкой, если ее склеить, но она никогда не будет той целой, какой была...
У меня были ситуации скорее наоборот. Я предавала человека, который меня любил, и он смог принять мой обман и продолжать отношения. Но даже спустя несколько лет, думаю, простил ли? Это так глубоко может ранить, что даже любя, а тем более любя, с такой болью очень сложно жить,и  забыть ее.

A pink bear appropriately named Teddy. How terribly original, right? He (yes, a pink BOY bear) was packed away in a box in our attic for years, came across him whilst cleaning out my room while pregnant & I pulled him out. He was .. no longer pink to say the least but after a couple baths he got .. pink I suppose you could say. All the stuffing has kind of shifted & moved as he, like myself, is 26 years old. A bit limp but now & he sits on my dresser beside my tv.

Did you have a favorite stuffed animal, action figure, or doll growing up? If so, what was it and what happened to it?


Oh, yes. I was between one and three years old when I received "Krawly", my stuffed Koala. :-) So that means I've had him for at least 50 years now. We were living in Colombo, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), and my a business associate my father was going to Australia, so my father asked him to bring me back a stuffed Koala. He's been through the wars and lost most of his fur, which I believe was Kangaroo fur, but I'm not sure. I know it's different fur from what I've seen on stuffed Koalas today, and was from some animal because of the hide underneath it--it wasn't fake fur, which they use today, of course.

Krawly went with me all over Asia and Europe, and on numerous vacations and camping trips when I was growing up. He still sits on my bedside table. Somehow I never lost him. In fact, I only lost one thing on all those trips, which was a little striped purse with a shoulder strap that held my toy Centurion soldiers. I was eight, and I believe both the purse and toy soldiers were purchased for me in Rome and subsequently lost in either Florence or Sorrento.

Best souvenir I ever got? My miniature bullfight set  complete with coliseum, <i>matadores/toreros, picadores, banderilleros</i> and bulls, of course   It's a cruel sport, I know and I definitely don't approve of it now, but as a kid I absolutely loved that set.

When I was 10 years old, my Grandparents took me on one of their many trips to Branson, Missouri / Silver Dollar City. And while we were down there, we drove past this store called 'The Doll House'. It was a Queen Anne, painted lady - all in bright pinks and white, and I begged them to let us go in there. It was so beautiful... a place I'll never forget as long as I live. And up on a shelf was this rather large, white buffalo that I fell in love with. I was really into Native American Indian things - and always felt a connection to the sacred White Buffalo. It was $25 and my Grandmother told me we couldn't afford it at the time. But she ended up writing them when she got back home and ordering it through the mail as a surprise for me on Christmas, and I had it in my possession until about 2 years ago when it was  damaged in a flood and could not be saved. As a side note, I know how much it cost because my Grandmother kept the receipt and the letter she received back from the owner of The Doll House in one of her many scrapbooks.

Here it is... a 1978 R. Dakin Pillow Pets Plush White Buffalo.

I had quite a few stuffed animals and toys, but it's hard to say if I had a favorite. I named and loved all of them, you see. It was an imaginary kingdom of equality! Even so...I guess there was one toy that went on the most adventures with me. HIs name was Milo, and he was a stuffed, life-size Dalmatian from 101 Dalmatians. I think it was actually the girl Dalmatian from the movie, but I always thought it was a boy, ha. Anywho...I'd hold him every night, and he was permanently in a sitting position. But that was really not a big deal since my imagination was strong enough to see beyond that. He could run, lay down, walk, jump...anything. Also, I was a dog, too. So we had two kids...one was a small Dalmatian beanie baby knock off I named Jamie...the other was a lion cub named Max. Naturally. 

As for what ever happened to Milo...well...I think he's still in the closet of my old room. That is a bit sad to think about.

I was.
To forgive, it's quite easy. It's not difficult to understand the aim of betraying one, though such understanding sometimes demands a lot of time.
To forget the betrayal, it's impossible. I'd more likely get blind indeed.
'Cause any betrayal is bloody always. Really, you can see that, unless you're blind.

Have you ever been betrayed by a friend or partner who asked for forgiveness? Were you able to forgive and/or forget? What was the result?

О да. Это было жарким июльским вечером в Мельбурне.
Его пропитанные ромом губы, шептали мне клятвы верности и вечной любви.
"Оливка, я готов пройти через всё снова, сгореть заживо или умереть от голода, только бы, ты простила".
   Помню, как тронули меня его слова и усы, щекотавшие ухо. Я готова была отдаться сею секунду, распять всех детей, ради которых мы столько вытерпели, наплевать на могилу матушки и отхлестать горящей библией Папу Пия XII. 
Но это была увертюра.
"Я устал ждать божьей милости, кругом лишь толпа слепцов, они не видят, как ты прекрасна, не понимают, чего тебе стоило показаться им на глаза. Пойдём со мной, ради нашей любви, ради моей любви, мы поженимся в Соборе Святого Павла, в чёртовом соборе, и там будет музыка и голуби с золотыми лентами и..."
   Шепот перерос в пылкие поцелуи, мои руки отчаянно сжались в кулаки, не стало сил сопротивляться, а он всё продолжал и продолжал.
"Оливка, Оливия - помнишь, помнишь ту газету, где фото Ирины фон Гессен, она будет на нашей свадьбе, клянусь!
Не знаю, как, с мешком на голове или без, я добуду её, а если надо и саму Королеву, всю редактуру Австралии, всех твоих чёртовых родственников со всего Мира, чтобы стыд и зависть... нашему счастью... собственных детей, как мы мечтали ещё в Быдгоще..."
   Он всё говорил и говорил, но я ничего не слышала. 
Та, кем я была и то чего я хотела, не могли примерится. Словно в экстазе, звуки лились из моей груди, пока сознание металось в сладостной агонии. Сейчас или никогда, то, к чему я шла всю свою жизнь, не понимая этого. Оно настигло меня и третьего не дано. 
"Я шляхтянка, я католичка!"
Как-же ханжески, это звучало. Хоть на лице едва, проступил румянец, душа кипела в струях страсти. Мокрая от волнения, я дрожа опустилась на колени.
Он стоял.
Всего-лишь стоял и молча смотрел на мою молитву.
Два дня на коленях. Безустанно молилась без сна и еды. Победить себя, победить жизнь, пройти это испытание до конца.
Когда я очнулась от обморока, было поздно.
Ни его ни Мартины не было. Для ясности, хватило белого пятна - конверта, оставленного на шкатулке. 
В тот миг, она стала символом всего, чего мы лишились.

На этом всё. Что-бы узнать, что дальше, вам придётся купить книгу.
Вопросы?

(Ехидная Ж) - Скажите Андреус, с кем из персонажей вы соотносили себя? Ведь главная героиня - спасшаяся от коммунистов польская аристократка?
Ну, во первых - спасшаяся от коммунистов, а затем и от фашистов, прикинувшись монашкой и став ею в конце книги, имеющая тайные желания в адрес своей сестры, католичка, как вы уже поняли ни по биографическим ни по чертам характера со мной не стыкуется.
(писатель потянулся за стаканом, но ехидная журналистка ждать не собиралась)
(Ехидная Ж) - А во вторых?
Поставив стакан, Андреус ответил: "А во вторых, я там был Амвросием - миловидным конспирирующимся евреем, наживающим состояние растляя попавших в трудности аристократок для своего борделя-студии."
(Равнодушный обзорщик с популярного сайта) - Если я не ошибаюсь, Оливия организует миграцию детей-сирот послевоенной Польши в австралийский приют при церкви, а её любовник наживается на этом, как только может, а потом, переспав с её сестрой Мартиной, не получив её прощения сбегает с этой Мартиной, прихватив все деньги. Амвросий к этому моменту уже в коме, а злая сестра мачехи ворует из пенсионного фонда деньги на фолиант заклинаний, в далёкой Трансильвании.
Так вот, кто-же тогда пишет ту роковую анонимку, кто додумался обоврать её красной шпионкой?!    
    Застигнутый врасплох, писатель нарочито-спокойно, перелистывает страницы. Глаза бегают из стороны в сторону и наконец произносит -Ну вот же: "Отец Ибрагим не сердился. Но Кшиштав, всё-ещё тлевший в нём, жаждал крови. Та, что сломала его веру и впилась в сердце, вытолкнув Иисуса маленькой ножкой в изящной, вышитой золотом турецкой туфельке,- не спасётся. 
  Он уже заранее простил её. Всё было написано в вагоне, по пути в Кёнигсберг. Пускай не его благодать наполняет её. Пускай он следил за ней в часовне, в исповедальне, в склепе, в хранилище свечей и даже на алтаре в полночь, когда имя Амвросия разносилось со стоном среди святых стен, под взглядом статуи Девы Марии. Прощена..." Ну и так далее.
(Равнодушный) - И так далее.
(Ехидная Ж) - Что-то я не припомню этого в книге.
Андреус - Не удивительно, память знаете-ли, ану-ка попробуй заполнить 600 страниц мелким шрифтом.
(Ехидная Ж) - Да нет, я точно там такого не читала.
(Только сейчас до неё дошло, насколько нелепую оговорку допустила жертва, но было поздно).
(ЕЖ) - дайте посмотреть.
Не дам.
Можно вашу? (Обратилась к обзорщику.)
Андреус - Да что вы заладили. Неужели содержание книги, интереснее меня. В конце-концов она никуда не денется, а вас, я в интернете забаню, как только объявитесь. Ну забыл человек про это написать, с кем ни бывает. Всё-равно вставлю этот кусок в продолжение, так-что, можете считать, что завесу тайны слегка шатнуло, случайным сквозняком.
Последний вопрос пожалуйста.
(Начинающий писатель) - Скажите, что конкретно вдохновило вас на эту книгу? А-то у нас тут версия возникает. Оливка, Мартинка, Амвросий, Ибрагим...
Андреус - Можете не продолжать, я вижу к чему вы клоните. Уверяю вас, скрытая реклама алкоголя тут не причём. Моей единственной музой всегда была и будет моя клавиатура.
  Всем спасибо, что пришли, покупайте книгу, бумага качественная, легко мнётся и без гмо. До свидания, спасибо за внимание, мне пора писать продолжение. Бросил писатель вслед.
А ведь и правда, чуть не спилась, пока дочитала... Заметила ехидная журналистка Аннушка, под псевдонимом Ёлка.

Did you have a favorite stuffed animal, action figure, or doll growing up? If so, what was it and what happened to it?

Heh. Oh yeah, I was a big one for the stuffed animals. I used to carefully lay out my collection in my bed, making sure each and every one had their head on a pillow and had a blanket, and then would sleep on the floor because my bed was full of stuffed animals. I have boxes and boxes of stuffed critters in my storage unit...

But I've got 2 favorites, and these guys have been my favorites for a very, very long time. The one that's the oldest is a brown teddy bear with a little red velvey bowtie. From what I've been told, I picked him out for my Mom for her birthday when I was 3. And then proceeded to steal him every night until she gave up. He's always been a little ragged and love-worn; his nose is all worn smooth and shiny, and his fur is a little patchy in spots. I didn't realize how much until I met a 'twin' of his in a Goodwill. Made the same year, same exact model; but he's all fluffy and golden and his bow is pristine and his nose is still flocked. He's in storage; my bear is still sitting propped up on the corner of my bed.

My other is a snow leopard...small and easy to drag around, and I did. Alot. The thought of the sheer amount of repairs my grandma has/had done to him is the only reason he's been 'retired' to sitting atop the dresser'; He's still a dearly beloved critter though. I think he's held up better than my teddy, but it's a close competition!

По-моему, здесь чисто семантическая ошибка. Первое предложение сформулировано так, будто предательство уже предполагает просьбу о прощении. При этом я неоднократно был свидетелем ситуации, где люди, не изменяя друг другу, имели странность постоянно говорить о прощении.

My baby blanket, which became no more than more-or-less felted cotton batting, with an edging of cloth in places. ... I still have it and still sleep with it.

My snorlax plushie, which I still have and which is still in excellent condition given its age and the fact that it's an actively loved toy.

I suppose it helps that I don't have younger siblings.



Incidentally, I'm posting this from the several-many-years-old mac mini, currently living in my bedroom, soon to become my very first Linux machine. :D (Because Linux is the only OS actively supported for PowerPC chips, is why I'm going to put it on this machine.) This poor lil puter has 512MB of RAM, which was an upgrade.


I've decided that when I miss Alex and am angry at him for not being online ever I should do some bodyweight exercises in place. The intention is to abuse the serotonin from exercising to make me care less. Hopefully I will end the summer not missing Alex, in really good shape, or both.


I have a job interview on Tuesday! :D It's for a temporary job at the U of MI grad library, probably working a section of the stacks. I hope I get the job :D (I am using nepotism to my advantage here.)


I've been playing Rock Band on drums, with the intent of jumpstarting my ability if I get to take drum lessons (which I'll start if I get this job). I'm getting noticeably better, which is really heartening. I got five stars on Living On a Prayer on Medium, when I started the summer having trouble with a lot of songs on Easy. :D *is proud of self*


I got into Magic: The Gathering near the end of the school year, so that's a money-and-time-sink. It's fun, though, and definitely cognitively active. Also I am now getting a little bit into comics, enabled by the library (w00t). I've mostly been checking out things Alex likes, partly because I trust his taste and partly because, well, I've got to start somewhere. Besides Neil Gaiman, that is.


I think I'm basically done with Ring of Steel. It takes too much emotional energy, and skill-wise I'm too far behind for my actual level of motivation. Kind of sad, but I can't be a meaningful part of the group when I'm flat-out gone for two-thirds of the year.


Despite two concussions and a new boyfriend, I still had a GPA high enough to be Deans-listed this semester. Go me?

Speaking of new boyfriends... Alex isn't going to be returning to Rochester next semester. This is really sad, and like the idjit I am I might be willing to give long-term long-distance open relationshipping a go. We'll see how that goes.

I do get to see him in just over two weeks, yay :D Hopefully he'll be paying attention to his phone when I need him to pick me up from the airport :/


Overall I feel much more productive than I did last summer, although we'll see how long I can keep it up, especially if I mix in a job. I feel like me+drums is something that is long overdue, and likewise for me+exercise (lol), so those two things at least I hope to keep up.

My sister and I got new dolls every year at Christmas. The one I really loved was a Ginny. They were a forerunner of Barbies. They were about 8 inches tall, had moveable arms and legs, and came with adorable clothes and accessories. They were not the Barbie fashion model, they were little girls, with school and party clothes, roller skates and sailor hats. Mine was left behind when I married and I wish I had kept her!

Writer's Block: Fool me once...

Have you ever been betrayed by a friend or partner who asked for forgiveness? Were you able to forgive and/or forget? What was the result?

Yes.  Yes again. It ended up in a bad relationship that cause me so much stress my highschool gpa dropped and I barely passed. Along with other things.
Lesson: When a guy is asking for forgiveness for so many things its best not to wait till something happens to leave him. That and get priorities straight. School > guy. Everything > a guy- no sorry a boy.

damn i'm agitated... time to post a thing rashing on people *waves* fare thee well.
