Вопрос дня: Игрушка мечты

What childhood toy did you desperately want that your parents refused to give you? Do you still think about getting one?

Настоящую Барби и Кена и дом для них). Эта пара стоила две трети папиной зп, и мне так их не купили... Да нет, уже не нужны, но когда я в игрушечном магазине, я очень люблю разглядывать этих куколок). 

Вопрос дня: Детские книжки

What were your favorite books as a child, and why?

Я в детстве любила читать и читала много. Обожала книги про приключения. Любимой долго являлась "Одиссея капитана Блада".  Пираты, море, сокровища и т.д. Романтика! Правда "Остров сокровищ" Стивенсона  мне не нравился. Очень понравилась "Дети капитана Гранта" Жюля Верна, прочитала за несколько часов (мне было около 10 лет), потом "заболела" его книгами, прочитала всё, что у было у нас дома (несколько томов, собрание сочинений). Нашла его биографию, в ней ссылки на его другие книги, которых у меня не было в собрании, искала их. После увлеклась детскими детективами. Зачитывалась приключениями "Братьев Харди" и "Трех сыщиков".  Что меня в них привлекало? Думаю, всё. Книги очень легко читались, просто на одном дыхании, написано живо, увлекательно. В них были сильные и смелые герои, увлекательные приключения, конечно, злодеи тоже были, но Добро всегда побеждало Зло. В детских детективах нравилось вместе с главными героями разгадывать загадки. Особенно помню из "Трех сыщиков" историю про попугаев, каждый из которых говорил одну фразу, а фразы, выстроенные в определенном порядке, вели к сокровищу. Обожаю, надо перечитать.

Would you rather be a vampire or a vampire hunter, and why?


Those are not mutually exclusive in fact the best of either of those are both. With the vampire lore that I enjoy human vampire hunters are a joke. Sure they can kill vampires but they kill the weak young ones, but you send them after one of the millennium vampires and they will be burnt alive before they even lay eyes on one.

If you could travel back in time and ask any deceased political figure (famous or infamous) a single question, who would you choose, and what would you ask?

I'd ask Churchill where he got the family dog.  Because I don't agree with politics so I might as well ask about something with relative insignificance, y'know.

Definitely Vampire; I am already light sensitive, and consider myself more of a night person. I can sleep all hours of the day, and love being outside when, for the most part, it's cooler at night. I hate the heat and blinding light of the sun. I understand why it's needed, but it still annoys me. Good question!

What childhood toy did you desperately want that your parents refused to give you? Do you still think about getting one?

Once when I was about 5 years old I think, I got a cooking playset as a birthday present but my mum refused to let me play with it in case I spoil. When I was older, a few years later, my mum still refused to let me play with it because she said that I was too old. So, no cooking set until now and I have no idea where in the world it is. Haven't even seen what the set contains. T.T

 I wasn’t able to have all the toys I wanted but I think that was ok since I was able to practice patience-hahaha. I kinda feel no urge to have it now. My parents bought me some toys I love but I also bought some from saving my allowances. But the very thing I think I was deprived of is to play in mom’s kitchen and play with her ingredients, utensils... etc...   now I dunno how to cook and desperately wanted to know how. HAHAHA. Ok, time for me to learn how to cook.

Would you rather be a vampire or a vampire hunter, and why?

Definitely a Vampire.  For starters, Vampire hunters grow old, they aren't nearly as powerful as a vampire and thus need tools to make up for it, and they will all die eventually.

Vampires on the other hand, don't grow old, probably won't die unless you are a damn good hunter, or a group of hunters, and don't need a bunch of fancy guns and weapons to kick your ass.

Besides, they have fangs. EVERYBODY wants fangs.

However, that aside, the most important thing of all is....its much more fun to be chased than to be the chaser. hehehe.  Being the hunted is always more fun, providing that you are more powerful than the one chasing you. To be an object of someone else's desire, to know that you are so plain awesome that somebody else has devoted their life to chasing you, is just plain fun. hehehe.

In a perfectly theoretical sense of course.  I'm sure, in real life, if you were actually being hunted, it wouldn't be fun at all, but hey, as long as it remains fiction, its all fun to dream.

(RPing Jesus) If I had to choose between being a vampire or a vampire hunter, I would have choose vampire hunter. Vampires are a demonic perversion of everything my Father has done. Plus, as I understand they even made a movie about me doing just that!

Would you rather be a vampire or a vampire hunter, and why?

Are you kidding? I'd be a vampire, of course! If I tried to hunt vampires I'm sure my life expectancy would decrease by several decades. Vampires get to drink blood, live forever, are sexy as hell (at least most of them are), and get to take long, moonlit strolls every night! Sure, that life comes with its downsides, but what doesn't?  I'd adapt. Eventually. Maybe in a few centuries.

The troll dolls. I remember being practically mesmerized by the troll commercials when they'd come on during Saturday morning cartoons. My mother, who is a very VERY devout catholic, thought the dolls looked demonic so there was no way I was ever getting one.

I played dirty though. My aunt and I went shopping one time and caught me staring at the troll display. So she bought me one :D After I saw the Olsen twins on Full House, my doll never seemed more lifelike.

Would you rather be a vampire or a vampire hunter, and why?

To be honest... neither sound that appealing to me. I mean, for the cool powers and stuff I might've chosen to be a vampire, but I don't want to have to drink blood for the rest of forever and kill people and stuff. (I like variety in food too much, and I don't even kill bugs. It just wouldn't work.) I don't know if I'd be a Vampire Hunter either because I don't have the skills. XD; Although if I ever *were* to become a Vampire Hunter, I'd DEFINITELY find myself a vampire as an ally (if I could find a good one). XDD

Writer's Block: Revenge of the midnight movie

What is your favorite cult film, and why?

BY FAR, has to be the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Not just because I love Tim Curry, but because of the randomness of the whole thing, and how insanely awesome it is. The songs, the crazy 'dance' if you could call it that, the fact that not a whole lot of people have seen it - and if they have more power to them - and its overall impact. I remember the first time I saw it- fell in love. A thousand times over. The Time Warp song, I learned the dance, and drove everyone crazy singing the tunes from the movie. The last thing that really came to mind was the fact that it was inappropriate, but looking back, I would NOT have allowed me to watch it until I turned 21. I saw it at 16 and found it wildly hilarious, and looking back, it probably wasn't the best thing for a teenager. But it was so insanely out there, I never would have dreamed to actually try anything I saw, or dress like the characters. I dunno. I just thought it was a classic, and movies like that you can't find anywhere anymore, for the most part. Still, definitely ranks as a top 10 in my book.

I have marched in the Gay pride parade in support of civil rights and acceptance, though I am het.

I believe in letting people do what they want providing it does not injure anyone else against their will. I believe in a woman's right to choose. I saw a line written on a lady's back today. It said..."Keep your law out of my vagina." She is right.

I believe in the rule of law but that a person must stand up and be heard when the law is unjust.

Totally would go with a vampire for this one simply for the immortality.  I wouldn't be a bad vampire I'd certainly look for an alternate way of surviving than drinking human blood.

The only downside to being a vampire is that you can't taste food and I'm a chubby guy that likes his food. :P

Not much else to say about this, immortality, the strength of 20 men, fangs, only sleep during the day which I do anyway if I can help it...  Yeah, Vampire all the way.

Hmmm Hard to choose. I like both X'3
I rather be a vampire hunter on this life I have because I want to hunt those violent and vicious vampires whom roaming and hunting human as their thirst quencher. When I become, I will go for the neutral side. Humans or Vampires could live the life they want. As long for the good not for evil.

But the next life... maybe I want to be a vampire, :)

Would you rather be a vampire or a vampire hunter, and why?

This is a hard one. I've always had a thing for vampires. Not sparkly lame ones, but ferocious throat-ripper-outers... Yeah. I used to want to be a vampire. Eternal life (as long as you stay away from stakes and AK-47's), levitation, and ALL THE BITCHES I COULD WANT! But ever since I read Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter, I kind of want to be her. She might not count 'cause she's a necromancer, too, but oh well.

Would you rather be a vampire or a vampire hunter, and why?

I'd rather be a vampire hunter. Because... I just want to. Who are you to question my choices? -_- XD

It depends on your definition of vampires. If you mean those "vampires" who are ever so sparkly without dying in the sun, then I'd do all means and beg to become a vampire hunter to hunt these so-called "vampires" down. But if you meant those real vampires... well, part of me wants to become a vampire now.

Oh wait. I changed my mind. I'll stay as a hunter. Or can't I be a vampire hunter but still be a vampire? Like those ones in Vampire Knight, where vampires slay those ones who are out of control (Level E). Shiki and Rima make it look so cool. ;P

But if I can't have both, then fine. I'll stay as a hunter. Why? Oh my god, Karen! You can't just ask people why they'd rather be a vampire hunter! :))

Would you rather be a vampire or a vampire hunter, and why?

Probably kind of cliche but I would go with being a vampire... My reasoning for this is that being a Vamp doesn't mean you can do good and really the only really challenge comes into what  species of Vampire you are. The Moonlight vamps where you sleep in a refrigerator, Twilight Vamps which I'm not going into, the Vampire Diaries Vamps that just need a ring or the Night World Vamps who are like people just stronger, faster, and prefer a different type of meal. There is probably a ton more Vampire Species out there, but those are just a few. Most of all though you'll get most of the powers/abilities when it come to being a vamp so why not.

Ignoring the possibility that half the people believe that vampires are like The Oh-So-Beautiful *sarcasm* Cullen family from Twilight I shall answer this question. See, being a vampire would prove to be rather fun. Sucking people's blood, hiding in the shadows waiting for your pray etc. But on the other side ...you can be a vampire hunter blowing head's off with two long black engraved with silver Latin words guns...(Man, that would be f-cking awesome!) Or even better: cutting throats and limbs and be covered in gore and blood with the help of two assassin blades very much like Prince of Persia. (Damn it, I can't choose!) Being a vampire...being a vampire hunter...both would be fun...but if I merge them together it would be even MORE fun! So I would be a vampire, who is a vampire hunter. You know...kill the vampire and then lick the blood that I'm covered in. HELL YEAH.

What do you so strongly believe in that you would march in the streets to support, and why?

I don't strongly believe in anything. I have crippling apathy most days. I went to... two protests in my entire life, one was because I was stoned and all my friends were going (back in high school we protested the war in Iraq), and the other was against Scientology because for a brief moment I felt true rage about something. But shortly after, it faded and I went back to not caring.

So I guess I would have once, years ago, marched against Scientology, but only for a moment.

I support equal rights for every orientation. I am a proud and firm supporter of LGBT activities as well as pan- and a-sexuals as well. :3

And, even though I may not be well liked after this, I'd march for the right to abortion as well. It's my body and, therefore, my choice. If I have unprotected  sex with some guy while I'm in collegge and end up with a baby, I can live with that. It's totally my fault and his. But what if I'm raped? Should I keep the baby that will end up being resented and unloved? A baby I might kill? What if I kill myself as well? It's my body. It's my choice. No one has any right to tell me otherwise.

GLBTQ rights. SO many of the people in my life who have kept me going are gay/lesbian/bi and it pisses me off that they don't get the same basic rights that I do.

Nothing, because that doesn't work anymore.

Instead, I write my representatives directly and tell them exactly what I think, fleshing out my arguments in full and explaining how I think it will work.

For some reason, most people's reactions to that policy is, "Psh! They don't read those letters! They just throw them away!" Yeah, well, they don't read your picket signs, they change the channel. But what are they more likely going to have to deal with if the point is to give them a message? A flood of e-mails they'll at least have to hire some secretary to delete, or a crowd of people on some isolated section of geography they're probably nowhere in the near vicinity of?

Of course, marching and street protests are to "get the message out" to other people too. Because blocking traffic REALLY makes commuters' day, putting them in a position to want to hear what you think.

Что ж, жизнь охотника на вампиров - всегда унылые скитания, бедность, полулегальное положение, зрелища, разрывающие душу, и ежеминутный риск гибели. Так что я определённо не хотел бы быть охотником. (Что? Кто-то сказал "человеческие жизни"? Если б я хотел жертвовать своей жизнью и, что ещё важнее, комфортом ради общества, я и без охоты на вампиров нашёл бы занятие, а я, как видите, не нашёл.)
С другой стороны, всё зависит от того, какая трактовка вампиризма будет работать в данном случае. Я знаю несколько вариантов, которые делают превращение в вампира пределом мечтаний, но также и немало случаев, когда смерть кажется предпочтительней проклятого бессмертия (не говоря уж всего лишь о жизни асоциального бродяги).

Animal rights, GLBT (gay) rights, and the "your kink is not my kink and that's okay" rule.

I also believe very strongly in the need to limit how many children a person or couple can have, with a global standard imposed on everyone regardless of racial/social/marital/financial status, but I realize that this would be almost impossible to implement, so it's not something I'm actually dedicated to fighting for. It just irks me that people seem to think that Earth has infinite resources and space, despite the pollution issue and the number of species being driven to extinction by habitat loss.

It is your right to exist a free man, to make your own choices. No one needs to be a puppet. Now there is a difference between following or leading however, that still falls under choice if you willingly do it. Now I would fight for this. I would fight for many things. Patriot, nationalist, whatever you want to call me, maybe I am these things. I believe that albeit our country is not perfect, the way it was designed is the model to follow.

Separation of Church and state (which doesn't currently exist btw)

and Most importantly GAY RIGHTS.

Gays and lesbians deserve all the same rights of everyone else in the US. Just cause they're gay doesn't make them less than human or criminal, so why are they being denied their human rights? Why are laws being passed against them?

What do you so strongly believe in that you would march in the streets to support, and why?

Of course I would. You don't have to be gay or and other PRIDE derivative in order to want to have equal rights to people who can not help what they feel. For the preachers who say it's choice and that Satan is leading them down the path of evil, I say to them, what about the people who go to the 'rehab' places and never get 'better,' never stop liking their own gender? You can't tell me the gay preachers trying to reform just aren't trying hard  enough. Or the christian gays who commit suicide because they just can't stop these 'evil' feelings.  I'm sure most, if not all, of them prayed to hard the carpet had knee divots but nothing changed because that's who they are. It's like believing all red heads or all twins are evil. Pray all you want, it's not going to change.

There are also the homophobes, the ones that will like who you are, so long as you like only the opposite gender. What does it change which gender one sleeps with. The nice guy at the gym that you bonded with over action movies and sports is not going to start going off about lotions and clothing and 'girly' stuff just because he has a boyfriend. The chick in the checkout line that's wearing the shoes you envy and just told you where she got that beautiful blouse? She's not going to go home to an abusive relationship just because the person waiting for her is a woman.

I would walk because I'm tired of the same tired self involved bs that flavor everyone's opinions about the personal lives of people that they shouldn't even care about. I'd walk because it's a cause I believe in, if not for myself, then for people that have been in my life that showed me how normal the 'freaks' are. Because being an outcast sucks and if I can help make one 'fringe' group happy and at ease, then I will. As trite as it is, I support because I care, not because of myself.

(and I would also love for gender rules to be bent and obliterated cause they are starting to piss me off, but that's neither here nor there and has very little to do with PRIDE)

This is the first time I've answered a Writer's Block question - finally, a question came up that I'm interested in! :D

I would march for Neurodiversity. As a woman with Asperger's Syndrome, I know that I am misunderstood because of the way my brain is wired. In this social world, anyone that flubs the unwritten rules of social interaction is bound to face issues such as rejection or bullying. Difficulties with making and maintaining eye contact makes one seem disrespectful or suspicious. Many people on the Autism Spectrum have sensory issues, which can make us stand out in a negative light when we experience overload. Many don't appreciate the fact that we can be rather blunt at times, and they don't understand how we can focus on certain topics, no matter how obscure.

Neurodiversity isn't just ASDs, however. Wikipedia's page on Neurodiversity (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurodiversity) is a fantastic starting point for learning about the concept, including mention of other conditions that fall under the Neurodiversity umbrella.

The number of people living with Asperger's and other conditions under the Neurodiversity banner is growing. It's time to embrace our differences, and and let it be known that we are human, too.

There are so many things in life I so strongly believe in that I would march in the streets for. But it's hard to put a finger on just one cause. I think the fight for a cure for cancer is far up on my list. I believe we all deserve a world in which the word cancer is thought of in the same terms of the common cold. If we only had an over-the-counter remedy for cancer, much of our lives could be lived without the fear of a painful and frightening death. My wife is going on Thursday to have a biopsy done on her neck. While we're believing this test will ultimately bring positive results, I'm scared to death. I hate the word biopsy. I hate that this is a word now associated with my wife's health. And I hate, above all things, that cancer has to be part of all of our lives, whether we are living with it personally or know someone close to us who is battling the illness in a very painful and real way.

1. Separation of church and state. It's getting to be practically nonexistent here in the US, but it is an absolutely vital building block to all our other freedoms. The people trying to erode it even further don't even realize that that wall is there to protect THEM *as well as* nonbelievers and those in minority religions. Because what if it wasn't *their* religion that was in power? They'd be HOWLING right along with us for that wall to go back up and for it to be 50 feet tall and made of titanium. With electrified barbed wire on top of it. And proximity sensors with loud blaring alarms. And attack dogs. And machine gun nests... you get the idea.

2. Gay rights. All people deserve equal treatment under the law, *including* the right to marry according to their natural preference and to have that marriage granted all the legal perks and recognition that my marriage has.

3. Women's rights. Because the level of equality that women have in a society is directly proportional to how healthy that society is in general.

4. Women's reproductive rights in particular. Yes, I'm pro-choice. I believe strongly that everyone's body belongs to them and they should have the final (actually, the ONLY) say in what happens to it.

As a matter of fact, I HAVE marched in the streets for those last two.

Wow, I feel all fiery and political all of a sudden.

A vampire. For one I never was a fan of the Sun. So I don't think I would've miss it very much, 'though I might miss seeing the sunrise and sunsets. Being vampire would make my eyes have REALLY good visions and able to see in the dark. Now THAT's cool. Bye bye glasses and night vision goggles. Third, super strength and being able to fly (probably, or at least able to jump REALLY high) would take away the fears of heights. VERY cool. The only downside is having to drink blood.

What do you so strongly believe in that you would march in the streets to support, and why?

Quite a few. I am glad same sex marriages were approved, that would be one I would march in support for. Another would be sex worker rights (i.e. porn stars, LEGAL prostitution glad they instilled condom only policy) STD's, animal rights, the arts, and things like that. Why? Because those things interest me.

What do you so strongly believe in that you would march in the streets to support, and why?
u

Anyone who know me well can predict this answer...

Gender, sexual orientation and religious equality! The right for people to make the life choices that are right for them without fear of being persecuted by society.

I would spend every spare moment marching the streets for an entire year if I thought it would really change anything. To me, marches are a show of support rather than a way of achieving any real change, but showing that support is still important.

What do you so strongly believe in that you would march in the streets to support, and why?

I have marched in the past for a fair number of things. The last time being less than a year ago in a gay rights march. I had to be pushed but I was there. I believe in the bill of rights and everything I have ever protested I have seen as a violation of the rights outlined in that document. I just happen to believe that it applies to everyone.

Marching in the streets will definitely let people know how you passionately feel about a matter – if that indeed is your goal.

But, if your goal is to right the wrongs of this world –  it might not be the most effective method.

Wrongs begin in the heart of mankind, and marching cannot change hearts.

Only God can do that.

Prayer will move the heart of God to move the hearts of people.

Writer's Block: Born again

If you were reincarnated as an animal, which would you choose to be in your next life, and why?

My cat, Misty. She lives the perfect life: she's never known anything but peace, happiness and prosperity, she gets almost anything she wants, and she's always happy (we nicknamed her "the Purr Machine" because she's always purring.)

My second choice would be a whale shark: they live underwater(!), they're too big for anyone to mess with, and they don't eat fish- only plankton and the like. Also, there's not really much of a market for eating them (maybe they taste nasty?) and they're too ugly to attract visitors to aquariums, so even humans pretty much leave them alone. It would be cool to live underwater, chilling, constantly snacking, never having to worry about things or deal with humans...

Vampire of course, but not like the twilight universe one but more like the Anne rice's kind of vampire. Well I could use the the time to study the world longer than human usual lifetime. I could use the awesome power too. And anyway I'm kind of a nocturnal creature anyway and also not a very nice person.

Очередной дебильный вопрос, предназначенный американским домохозяйкам. Даже перевести не потрудились, хотя вот это, может, и к лучшему, меньше повода для расстройств.

Но мы-то другие!!!

What do you so strongly believe in that you would march in the streets to support, and why?

     What would I march in the streets to support? Well, marching in the streets is not my style, but I do have many things I am that passionate about. 

     I would march for the truth of Jesus' atoning death on the cross. This is not something you march for, because Christianity is about--Jesus is about--a one-on-one relationship. "Oh, since I saw that Jeus is Lord street protest, I decided to give my heart to Christ." NOT something you're going to hear. Most times, people give their hearts to Christ because they have a friend or family member who is a Christian and who truly cares for them and who tells them the truth in love. You  hear of people all the time who went to an abortion clinic and rushed past the noisy protesters on the sidewalk in front of the clinic. You hear of people all the time who went to an abortion clinic and turned away because one of the pro-lifers came up to them with true compassion and offered help. (Yes, the right to life is one of those issues about which I would march in the streets. If I thought it would win anyone over.)

     I would march for the truth that the family is the building block of society. Again, not something to march for. A march in the street is not going to convince anyone. These kinds of issues are going to take a forum where you can discuss, provide proof, work toward legislation. A blog, a debate, a radio broadcast, a letter to the editor. Not a protest in the streets.

     Come to think of it, almost any issue is the same way. How are you going to convince another person of what you believe unless you take the time to talk it over, hear their point of view, get to know where they are coming from, share from your heart? For instance, who's being won over by those obnoxious, hateful Westboro "Baptist" protesters at military funerals? No one. (Note the quotation marks around the term Baptist. I do not consider them Baptist; it's just what they call themselves.)

     Maybe this is why I roll my eyes whenever I see a protest, yet I'll pick up a brochure that explains what those same people believe and why. (The same goes for organized boycotts, though I do have more faith in the impact of a boycott than in the impact of street marches.) My husband loves to read editorials and books that oppose his conservative views. It sharpens and opens his own thinking. A lot of wisdom in that.

     So, let's save the street marches for when our country is in physical danger and needs courageous men and women to step forward to protect our way of life.
     
     That said, march away and boycott away...for whatever reason. First Amendment and all. (Just don't expect to win me over with those tactics).

Blessings,
Voni

Ha. Ha ha. HA HA HA HA.

Oh rainbows, I could take them or leave them, really......

Yeah right. LOL. I love rainbows. I collect rainbow-colored things (ALL THE THINGS). I have a rainbow desktop wallpaper and a rainbow browser theme. I have a rainbow poster on my wall, several rainbow shirts, scarves, gloves, belts and bags. Also rainbow nailpolish, shoelaces, body glitter, hair bands, book binders, notepads and an assortment of pens. I have rainbow icons. I acknowledge rainbow as its own color. I love colors. And there is no more colorful thing than a rainbow. Well maybe a double rainbow, but I have not yet been blessed to see one in person ;-)
Colors make me happy. Rainbows make me happy. I do realize that this question is somehow related to Pride and I have a whole bunch of Pride too, but even if the rainbow was not the symbol of LGBT Pride, I would still love rainbows. Oh, a flag! I do not have a rainbow flag yet. That seems to still be missing in my collection. I need to get on that!

Rainbows, man. Fucking delicious.
