Кому живется весело,
Вольготно на Руси?
Роман сказал: помещику,
Демьян сказал: чиновнику,
Лука сказал: попу,
Купчине толстопузому! -
Сказали братья Губины,
Иван и Митродор.
Старик Пахом потужился
И молвил, в землю глядючи:
А Пров сказал: царю...
Николай Алексеевич Некрасов, где-то 150 лет назад.
I think I still love to become a couch potato with my sister,yet it hurts me that I nolonger can actually do that, and that my other sisters are drifting apart from us.
Aside of that, I might love my family but no matter what, I can't stand spending more than few minutes with them. It always End up in a heartache for me.
Время монархии для России безвозвратно прошло.
Коренным образом изменилось общественное сознание, после революции, гражданской войны, НЭПа, 30-х годов, Великой Отечественной Войны, периодов восстановления, Стаханова, БАМа, целины, затем прозрения, охаивания культа личности, потом застоя, позднее - перестройки, накопления стартового капитала, раскручивания, распада СССР, переворотов 91-го и 93-го, курса на западную демократию и т.д и т.п..
После таких динамичных изменений, наблюдая за современниками - однозначно ни о какой монархии речи идти не может.
Даже представить сейчас возвращение монархии в России - полнейший абсурд.
Сама постановка вопроса вызывает улыбку.
Адская смесь олигархии с демократией.
В Справедливого Диктатора скорее поверят, но уж никак не в Справедливого Царя-Батюшку.
I think we could be a lot more and do a lot more together. God, I'm waiting on You for this.
My son. He's the best thing I ever made. ;-) It's such a delight to see him growing into such a fine young man, with a strong interest in history, politics and current affairs, and a genuine sense of social responsibility. Despite all he's been through over the years--his father withdrawing from his life, the death of his grandfather, his grandmother moving to another state, our brief period of homelessness and our seemingly endless poverty, he's developed into a wonderful, kind and thoughtful person, and that's tremendously rewarding to me. :-)
This is his senior year of high school, and this is the saying he wrote for under his yearbook photo. It sums him up in a nutshell:
"Just because life is unfair doesn't mean it has to stay that way."
Посмотрите на любую страну, которая сохранила своего монарха. Великобритания, Шведция, Япония... Продолжать можно много. Народы этих стран едины, они уважают своих монархов. Да они могут быть недовольными действиями правительства, но это уже другой вопрос, это в любой стране такое происходит.
Глобус можно крутить в разные стороны, приближать.
I'm do thankful for the people in my life who love me for me. They're there no matter what, they listen to me when I bitch and moan, they hold me up when I'm falling and pick me up when I do. They love me when I least deserve it because they know that's when I need them most and for that I love them. It's ride or die. Friends til the end. You jump, I jump. I’ll stand in front of you, I’ll take the force of the blow. I love you to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, in it, and above. I will never let you fall, I will stand up for you forever, I’ll be there for you through it all, even if saving you sends me to heaven…
I love you guys. There's no need to name you, you know exactly who you are. Thank you for saving me, thank you for being there but most of all, thank you for not giving up on me. I love you guys so much ♥

Not having to worry for my life (and those important to me) in every waking moment of my life

My hats (cause they help me avoid looking at people's eyes and cover for me if I want to take a quick nap in class lolol)
Having cars that I can drive to take me places
My art supplies
The pleasanter aspects of fandom
Awesome fanfic writers
Professional artists, musicians, and writers who inspire me
Being able to draw decently
Myself for getting this far (Is that narcisstic? I hope not.)
Еще можно посмотреть серию фильмов "Один дома".А также замечательный мультик "Ну,погоди!".
Getting food poisoning the day before Thanksgiving and not during the last days of class.
1. My dad for being the most amazing man I've ever known to walk this planet.
2. My friends who have continued to stand by me through thick and thin and who give me their constant, unfailing support and ask for nothing in return.
3. Mr. Chips for continuing to defy the odds. He's still my constant companion thirteen months after the vet said he wouldn't make it more than another three.
4. My new job for giving me better opportunities so I can finally realize my dreams, and also for bringing a brand new family into my life.
I love every single one of you. Thank you for being in my life <3
And yes, I realize it's super silly, but fuck you. ♥
<strike>Also, I may or may not love you all. ♥</strike>
HAPPY TURKEY DAY! I'll be over here with my tofurkey, because, I am a hipster piece of shit? Also also, we've got Bitburger.
Какие цари, от чина звание ничего не изменится, важно какой человек у руля страны.
Kristen helps me think on my feet,teachers me though paper might beat rock, fencing sword makes HUGE hole in paper.
Anna teaches me to think before I speak, and be empathetic to everyone.
Alex teaches me to cook and challenges me to beat him to his house in a race,even though he knows I'll win.
Matt teaches me to think outside the box, realize a different way of thinking, and a different way of life. As well as, when you don't understand what someone's saying, just nod when they stop for breath. ;)
Hannah shows me that while people can look and act totally different, they can be sisters at heart
Carianne teaches me patience and understanding is sometimes the only way to get through to people and let them know you're there.
My life is by no means perfect. With epilipsy, breathing issues, and highschool, it would be a miracle if it WAS perfect. But still,I'm thankful. Because while it may not be perfect, it's pretty dang close.
Опять-же, пространственно-временной континуум может нарушиться, если с Руси царя скинуть.
Ну а нам, в России - зачем нам царь? Один разок уже скинули, хватит.
I'm -- ahem -- disgruntled about:
A rotten "get-out-of-town" commute home from work on the day before.
I'm thankful for:
Not being one of several involved in accidents or having their vehicles break down on the way home.
I'm not thankful for:
Two of my three favorite FM stations switching to "All Christmas music All the time" over a week before Thanksgiving.
Programming executives who think "My Favorite Things" is a Christmas carol.
I'm thankful for:
Frank Sinatra's rendition of "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year". (The man could sure carry a tune.)
Царь должен быть в голове, а не Карлсон на крыше.
I'm thankful for love. For without it, our world would be empty and meaningless. Whether its friends, family, pets, school mates, bf/gf, spouse, children, the deceased or the people you pass everyday. Love stays strong when everything else has fallen. Love pushes you up when you feel you cannot rise. And under all the war, and death, sadness, and ill will, love keeps it from destroying you completely. Just remember that.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. <3
