Шикарно же?

I've said this frequently to friends, and I'd even consider it as an answer to the "if you could have a superpower" sort of question too:

I want the power to cause any driver to get pulled over by the police.

Seriously. I'm a careful, safe driver, but I'm no grandma behind the wheel, yet there are those assholes out there that do not only the stupidest, most annoying things, but they do it in the way that seems like they're going out of their way to be dangerous and irritating. I want the power to just look at any given car, say, "Get pulled over!" and for a cop to appear right there and ticket them. Tailgate me, get pulled over. Cut me off, get pulled over. Jump out ahead of me at a four-way stop when it isn't your turn, get pulled over. Speed dangerously through a parking lot, get pulled over. Zoom past me on the freeway going 90 mph, get pulled over. Waver a lot in your lane so I don't want to pass you--especially if it's because you aren't paying attention, like when on a cell phone--get pulled over.

Вот почитала я комментарии и поняла сколько мифов о журналистской работе сидит в блоггерских умах. Думаете журналистика - это сплошная романтика, не работа, а сказка? Нееет. Это такая же работа. Работа по графику и плану. К тому же местами и опасная. Вот, например, сегодняшний случай http://koshkavsapozkah.livejournal.com/8290.html
А что касается вопроса, то я работаю в газете. Писать приходится для разных рубрик, но чаще всего для Персоны и Сюжетов. В основном об интересных людях региона и культуре. Мне повезло, поскольку пишу о том, что нравится и о том, что хорошо знаю.

I think I would have made a good journalist.
Indeed a lot of the people I have met on the Internet.......and are writing Journals........and are now JournalISTS would have made good Journalists.
To some extent the mystique of being a Journalist has been stripped away by the Internet.
We can all be Bob Woodward.....Carl Bernstein.....Clark Kent..........and Lois Lane.

My subject is History (and Politics) and it baffles me that so many professional journalists dont seem to see the historical context of the story. The one lesson we should learn from History is that nothing is so new......it has all happened before.

In that sense I would be a pretty good twice weekly columnist.......putting political stories into a historical context.
My downside is that I am a bit of a quirky individual.......I can go for a good one-liner......and lose a  sense of gravitas/seriousness that a journalist should have.

Я не буду оригинальным и выберу спорт. Думаю, большинство парней тоже выбрали бы его. Он действительно интересный и это был бы тот случай, когда работа и хобби совпадали. Но, спорт писать хотят многие, это одна из самых востребованных рубрик, но при этом же тяжелая. С одной стороны кажется, что легко, но ведь читатели тоже будут разбираться в спорте, поэтому, надо найти слова как заинтересовать их. А с интервью, так вообще проблематично. Известные спортсмены не так и охотно дают комментарии, особенно, после неудач. Сложно же пересилить себя и ответить на неприятные вопросы журналиста, да и мотивации нет. легче отказаться, ругать никто не станет. Кроме спорта в новостном издательстве себя сложно представляю, возможно мог бы писать о недвижимости какие-то аналитические статьи, это было бы тоже интересно.

Захотелось ответить на вопрос. т.к я в подростковые годы имела небольшой опыт написания статеек в школьную и местную городскую газету, а потом еще пыталась поработать внештатным корром в большой газете, но ничего не вышло - у меня не было своего взгляда и я тупо пережевывала материалы готовых статей по пробелме. как сейчас помню - мне надо было написать статью про запрет продажи в школах всяческих неблагородных продуктов типа чипсы, газ.вода из-за чего нормальная столовка игнорировалась. тогда я не осилила это задание и совсем потеряла веру в себя в этой ипостасии

отвечаю.
рубрика "Критика чего-либо"  это мне реально доставляет.
или рубрика, где в женских журналах пишут лав стори..  такие душесчипательные и местами поражающие своим идиотизмом. Мне почему-то захотелось нечто подобное писать.  таки дела.

What's your favorite line from a song, and why?

ohhh... hard one...

at the moment there are 2 songs in my head and the standout lines are:

"it's all because you're momma can't dance and you're daddy don't rock and roll"

and

"i like bread and butter"

But my favourite line out of a song... hmmm... there are so many...

'if you got a candle, you better light it now, if you got a voice, you better shout out loud, raise your hands above this crowd, I will reach you. can you hear me? can you hear me? I will reach you.' -I will reach you Wetlife
'we could be more than just... we could be more than just Amazing' - Amazing, Westlife
'I'm alive!' - The last Unicorn, Americas
'don't matter if the sun don't shine, or if the skies are blue... no matter what the end is, my love began with you.' - No Matter What, Boyzone

nope. I've got it:

Have I told you lately that I love you?

Van Morrison... you fill my life with gladness, take away my sadness, ease my troubles is what you do. (coinsidently that song is not about a woman (or a man, or child), it's about God)

Продажа б/у бытовой техники.
В моем детстве, когда рекламным блокам отводилось лишь малая часть, а мечтой ровесников был двухкассетный японский магнитофон, или портативный плеер, или предел желаний - видеокамера, я пожирал строчки с инфой кто-что продает. Мне казалось, что отслеживая каждую неделю свежие объявления, я становлюсь ближе к заветной цели. И теперь, когда есть возможность пролистать провинциальные газеты в командировках, я всегда просматриваю, почем сарай, или выводок цыплят, или, например, лодка какая-нибудь. Да и правды в колонках о купле-продаже больше, нежели  в остальном. Вот такое потребительское общество.

..а о странах,потому,что впереди глобализация. должен происходить "диалог" культур.

I would honestly want the ability to be able to snap my fingers and have everything in the room go back to its place (or to the sink in the case of dirty dishes and the hamper for dirty clothes--you get the point). It would save me the trouble of hearing my mom nag, of having to be disgusted by a dirty room in my dorm when I'm at school, AND it would save my mom the trouble of stressing over it, which would make me less stressed as well.

Yes, that sounds lovely.

What a convenient Writer's Block prompt, LiveJournal! I'll answer in a picture, but first, the backstory:

There's a 24-hour gym in the clubhouse across the street from my building. I finally went to check it out tonight—figured out how to work the treadmill and everything. I was there about half an hour, which was maybe two-thirds walking and one-third actually running, because the last time I exercised intentionally (as opposed to as a side-effect of something else, like running from A GROLAR BEAR WHAT THE FUCK {1}) and seriously (as opposed to the "exercise" we did in the hospital that mostly involves very slight stretching and reaching … while seated) was probably legitimately years ago, perhaps running or walking or biking or whatever I did to prepare my body for marching band season, which at my high school was surprisingly intense. Regardless, in spite of my woeful lack of fitness, it was still nice—it felt good to be moving.

Or, it did at first. Which leads me to the problem I would like my power to solve:





(1) From Cracked: "The horrifying thing about grolar bears is how they have carnivorous polar bear behaviors in bodies that are adaptable for warmer climates. So while the grizzly diet is 80 to 90 percent plants, the polar bear feeds strictly on the flesh of other animals. This is why captive grolar bear babies stomp their toys around -- like they would stomp a seal to death."

This may not apply to many people, but for me I would have "insta-heal". The ability to heal any wound that I get. I have so many piercings and with getting them comes the healing process. It makes it so difficult to get up and live during that time. It would be amazing if they would just instantly heal after getting them. The same goes with tattoos. I hate the itching stage and I wish that they would just heal up right away.

And some don't, it's always good when you have someone you know that is going along with you :)

Well I would appreciate working with people understand that people come from different backgrounds and everyone has a different fate. If my fate is to be alone, so be it. It's not my fault that men don't love me back. Also, just because I'm into ninjas does not make me one. It's an insane assumption. Not to mention that they don't believe me that I'm Russian. I look European, I speak Russian fluently, and I know all the damn holidays because I've celebrated them when I was child. Oh, and according to them, I'm not allowed to save up money for nice things. It's like my co-workers never mentally left high school.

Я иду ей навстречу и хочу ее увидеть, так как чувствую, но не вижу. и напрягаю глаза и не могу видеть и напрягаю опять чтоб открыть и не вижу и мучаюсь, что не могу открыть глаза, но всё остальное хорошо вижу вокруг. и общаюсь с ней, она там запрещает к ней в комнату малому бегать. и я его вывожу оттуда.а глаза как слипшиеся... то есть я вижу все, но не ее. и мои мучения (нет СИЛ открыть глаза)

If you could have a power that helps you with day-to-day living, like the ability to always get a seat on the bus, what would choose, and why?

I would want the ability to always find someone to give me whatever I needed, or even wanted, at the time. I hope it wouldn't spoil me, always being able to find internet, coffee, breakfast, a bed to sleep in or a couch, a ride, some gas, or some good conversation. I don't think it would, it is difficult for me to accept gifts; I find far more joy in giving them.
Another possibility would just to be to see the beauty and truth in every moment, and find a way to put it to words, or use words to allude to it and its meaning. I think it would be even more important to do that than anything I could think of. Now that I think about it, I may be able to manifest that ability; with a combination of natural talents, prayer and help from above, and focusing my mind on good things. It is recommended in a passage in the New Testament, to think on anything that is true, lovely, beautiful, good, worthy of praise, etcetera. Sounds worthy of my time.
Now that I really think of it, Jesus told his Apostles to not concern themselves for anything worldly, that all they need would be provided for them. I know I'm not one of the original twelve Apostles, and my mission in life is most likely very different from the singularly amazing one they had. What my mission is, I don't yet know. I do know though, God will provide for that mission, that purpose, whatever it is, and whatever is needed to accomplish God's work. For that reason I should have faith, that it is not an ability of mine, but of Divine Providence.

If you could have a power that helps you with day-to-day living, like the ability to always get a seat on the bus, what would choose, and why?

Wasn't this question asked before? It seems familiar. Well, for myself, it would be two powers, actually, One would be the ability to teleport myself anywhere in the world, and the second would be to never run out of money in order to do things. I know there would be others, but I couldn't pick just one.

Вопрос дня: Переезд

If you had to relocate to another city, what would you miss most about the place you're leaving behind.


          Самый печальный мой переезд в жизни -- после окончание Литинститута, из Москвы в Минск. Я настолько срослась с Москвой --  всей душой, всем своим существом -- что уже не представляла себя без этого города и всего, что связано с ним.
          Я задыхалась без московских театров и музеев, без шумных улиц и перенаселенного метро, без Литинститутского братства и ежедневного творческого общения. И даже недобрая, всегда торопящаяся московская толпа, которая поначалу пугала и раздражала, стала казаться издалека самой замечательной толпой в мире.
          Я не скучала по Москве -- я тосковала по ней, глубоко и безутешно. И это состояние: "было все -- и ничего не стало" -- долгое время не давало мне расправить крылья.

This is a great question, telekientic powers, or the ablilty to teleiport. Um that power would be the best for my job i could keep my patients from pulling out their tubes or getting out of bed when they are not able to walk with out them hitting me. I would be be able to vaccume under all of my furnature with out having to move it, when i was an animal control officer i would never have to chase a dog or another animal again. I would never have to roll a patient in bed i could levate them above the bed or pull them up with out any phyical strength. I really want to travel so badly but transportation gas prices ect are preventing that from happening, if i could teleport i could go where ever i wanted at the drop of a hat.

I would have the power of shooting mild curses at people who tick me off. :) Such as, I see someone throw an empty drink cup out of their car window in my yard I'd make them spill the next 6 drinks they buy!

Or if someone took up two parking spaces I'd curse them to have to park in the furthest space for a month!

Walk down the street with a friend and use swear words while just talking? Step in a pile of dog poop when you cross any street, buddy.

Just that alone would make my day:)
