А может, и впрямь не боги горшки обжигают?
Надо иметь мужество высказать свое мнение, даже если его хотят игнорировать.
Власть узнает твое мнение, даже если не признается в этом.
Уважаемый Дмитрий Анатольевич!
Вчера 24.11.11 закончились дебаты в прямом эфире между ЛДПР и Единой Россией.
К сожалению, по моему мнению, Ваша партия проиграла шуту-Жириновскому, во-первых, потому что мне действительно хотелось бы видеть руководителей партий лицом к лицу. Но Вы с Владимиром Владимировичем почему-то игнорируете своих избирателей, а, во-вторых, И ЭТО САМОЕ ГЛАВНОЕ, что Ваш представитель господин Хинштейн А.А. закончил своё обращение к избирателям фразой: "Лучше быть в партии воров и жуликов, чем в партии насильников и убийц!" Это что же получается???
Требует СРОЧНОГО ответа!!! 4 декабря не за горами!!!!

I am most thankful for everything and everyone that's ever helped me in my life, whether its music, my family, friends or even enemies that taught me a lesson. I thankful for being alive and healthy and to have a what people would call "good" life.
12:20 AM (Thanksgiving is kinda over now, but oh well!)
я приносил свой голос на участок
хотел его отдать, но не отдал...
а проходя бочком у урны красной
посла обээсе козлом назвал
ещё припомнил всуе его маму,
вообще разделав парня под орех
и, завершая сольную программу,
я голосил: где пункт мой "против всех"!???
The groceries were for today's dinner. The fabric and notions were actually for Christmas gifts. And the fabric is actually a brightly colored patio tablecloth I plan to upcycle. I have no intention of setting foot in a store tomorrow. We'll be out at Casa Zender enjoying 2nd Thanksgiving.
I decided a bit back that I was not going to buy into the whole consumerism thing this year. 99% of my gifts given will be handmade. (I will probably buy tormentedartist's gift though... I don't have much time when he's not here to effectively make him a gift.) Not only will handmaking everything save us money (I honestly have most of my supplies right here) in lean times, it will make me feel like I'm actually doing something - even if it's a small something - to stand against big business.
I think the whole "Black Friday" shopping thing is truly awful. People lining up (and camping out even) to buy stuff they don't need at rock-bottom prices. The big stores keep opening earlier and earlier - cutting into the modicum of time retail employees get to spend with their loved ones on Thanksgiving. Working in customer service is bad enough on a normal day... but to have to deal with rabid customers at 3am is more than anyone ought to have to deal with.
I'm just one person, so my small protest won't really change anything... but it will make me feel like I'm doing something.
The last purchase I made consisted of two items: DC Comics' Brightest Day Vol. 1, which is the sequel to the brilliant Blackest Night, and IDW's trade paperback of Infestation, which chronicles a zombie invasion that spreads through the Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Trek, and Ghostbusters universes. Sounds really weird I know, but it somehow works.
For now my shopping will be strictly for Christmas gifts, and one present I'll be getting for the family (meaning Mom and myself) is the Season 2 DVD set of Law & Order: UK. I did make one last pre-holiday purchase for myself: I pre-ordered a copy of the upcoming Star Wars novel Darth Plagueis, which tells the story of Palpatine and his master. I've been dying to know more of that Sith Legend ever since Palpatine told Anakin that story in Revenge of the Sith. I hope James Luceno came up with a compelling tale!
Last purchase was a bunch of little toiletry items from The Daiso in Richmond. Holy crap, that place is dangerous to my bank account. Two floors of everything you can imagine, from housewares to cosmetics to storage items to small electronics to food items. Everything is $2 unless otherwise marked.
I hate shopping, normally. Put me in a really good dollar/discount store, though, and I can spend hours browsing, and come away quite a bit poorer.
Непременно пойду, не хочу чтобы мой голос посчитали в пользу ЕдРо. И так уже до невозможности ограничили выборы, ни одной партии радеющей за народ и будущее страны не осталось в списке. Но идти надо, ибо дальше будет только силовая конфроНтация, а этого ой как не хочется.
I guess the things I'm thankful for today is the fact that I havn't fallen asleep once even though I nearly did in one of my lectures.
So anyway.. After that procrastination.
Can anybody tell me about boys/men/guys/ the things that mess with girls heads!!??
So there is this one boy - for the sake of this story I'll call him Dave (It's easy to spell and quite a nice name)
This Dave guy and I have met up a few times and it all seems to be going well. He is a lovely guy and very attractive too in my opinion. He's taken me out for drinks and lunch and just generally spoilt me like Ive never had done before. He kisses me when we greet and when we part and it just seems so natural.
However (there is always a however)
He never really seems to initiate the meetings? Is that bad? Or am I just being really odd and reading into it too much?
We've seen eachother most weekends (well 3) and this weekend nothing has been organised and I dont know if that is because
a) I have organised it
b) he is busy
c) he doesn't want to meet up :(
d) it has just slipped his mind
But the weird thing is he is kind of backing the idea of me staying with him for a while nearer Christmas when I break up from Uni. Keep him company in his house when people from his flat are gone.
Now.... is this just a booty call - for a week? I don't know! :O
WHY ARE MEN SO COMPLICATED!!!???
AND WHY AM I SUCH A TYPICAL GIRL READING INTO SIGNALS AND THINGS THAT MIGHT NOT MEAN ANYTHING?????
Ok... glad I put that out there!
Well people - I dont know if people actually read this?? Hmmm
Вырезал. Склеил. В день выборов катнул в кабинке - и определился. "ПЕдРос-ов" нету - эти жулики и без наших голосов себе намутят, обойдутся!
"Yes him, he's alright, yes put him in, no - no actually don't, he's all sort of flecky...
and her - yes - her, now I don't like her shoes at ALL. I mean would you wear them? And as for - oh just put them all in, yes that's right, everyone - cancel the whole bloody lot and good riddance!"
"You're not really getting the hang of this are you Bernard. Look, we've all got something to be thankful for - I mean take you for instance, what have you got?"
"What right here and now?"
"Right see and _"
"You can't have it, it's mine."
"That's not the - What else?"
"Exactly. And friends."
"Friends, you know. Like, for example - me."
"God is that the time I have to just - really have to..."
the moral being -
if you know who you are, i'm grateful,
if i know who you are - i'm grateful
but maybe you need to remind me to tell you!.
and there's a couple of anonymous people here that i'm thankful for and grateful to most of all. love on.
and cigarettes of course. also - cats.
I am thankful for:
*my wonderful family
*my amazing friends all over the internet and across the world
But more than anything else or anyone else, I am thankful for my Dad, whom I love.
Happy Thanksgiving (yeah, I'm late, so what?)
second, to my family especially my parents who are always patience with me. yes, i admit i'm a bit difficult to raise b'cause i'm such a stubborn n naughty girl. i have a foul-mouthed n bad temper....but i'm really glad they never give up on me...they give me everything that i need...education, house to live, food to eat, money to spend and most importantly love. till now, sometimes i still argue with them especially my mom, but when i leave far away from them, i learned to miss them n appreciate them much better and of course love them much much more from before.
thirdly is my sibling, well let say i can only be my own-self when i'm only whit them n my parent. and i'm glad they accept me as who i am...even when i'm such a bad bad sister..
and i'm only can trust my family...

Last time I went shopping was two days ago, for groceries, preparing for my recovery from dental surgery. I'm not going to be eating anything besides chicken broth for probably a good week, is my guess. Also, I have lots and lots of ice packs (frozen bags of peas, refreezable ice packs) on hand to deal with the inevitable discomfort. (And I hope I get some really, really good painkillers from them too.)
Right now, there are stores that have been opening at 3, 4 in the morning. Fuck that shit. I'm a night owl by nature and there are times when sometimes I wish I could just go browsing for the idle fun of it that late (I think this just stems more from a desire to hang out with people rather than any real shopping craving), but I don't, because there's just no need to; besides, Mallwart is open 24 hours anyway and the only real reason I'd be there at that hour is if I were really sick and needed something Important like cold medicine or personal supplies. (Although I think it would be kind of fun to browse with a friend, but then again, there, that just stems more from a wish to have someone close than any actual need for material stuff.)
I feel for all my brothers and sisters in retail - they'll be having to put up with all kinds of bullshit. Honestly, is getting a new gadget or whatnot REALLY worth getting trampled on by idiots? I love materialism and a good bargain just as much as anybody else, but Black Friday can suck it because it brings out the worst in people. People have actually DIED being stomped over by hordes of people who just couldn't wait to stampede the stores. No person's life is worth that kind of insanity.
I really do think that sunfell is right when she says that this kind of advertising blitz is meant more and more to be a distraction to us from the real problems we face - keep our attention focused on banal crap rather than allowing us to divert energy, time and resources to actually fixing what needs fixing. (Why else would we have so many stupid celebrity magazines? I'm so damn sick of the fucking Kardashians...Speaking of which, explain to me please why a gay couple who's been together for like 20 years can't get married but some moron celebrity can throw a wedding worth millions of dollars and then call it quits not even three months later, and that's supposed to be more legit. Sanctity of marriage my ass. /tangent rant)
Our Thanksgiving Day newspaper here, for instance, was 6 pounds - heavier than even the normal Sunday paper. It was all full of advertising crap. My mom, who also works retail (though not in a department that's likely to see high demand), has said that she's seen people only buying what they really need or want, and not going all-out. People just can't afford it. Everybody is tapped out, the stress and depression of being unable to provide for, or even give extra gifts, is really wearing thin on people, and our dumb culture meme just keeps telling us to smile and buy, buy, buy. Problem is, you can't keep that mask on indefinitely. Not without cracking - and we're seeing some real serious chips in the paint anymore.
Me, I'm not going anywhere I don't have to be, and not buying anything I don't have to. I refuse to shop on this day just to blow a raspberry in greed's eye. I'm not the only one either; more people are either expressing their displeasure with Black Friday and/or choosing to avoid it entirely. So, let us proudly celebrate Buy Nothing Day!
(Because the real treasure, as evidenced by my previous post, is the people you care about and who care about you.)
При Советской власти считал себя недостойным быть коммунистом.
Смотрю, все на жопе волоса рвут, чтобы только Ед.Ро. в топ не попало,
Не об этом бы думать сейчас, а об сильной нашей Родине - России, - война на носу...
Also, if I see a great bargain during the year, I'll buy it and save it for someone specific. That's how it came that I was mailing a bowl to my sister. Next time, no matter how good the deal, I will pass unless she plans to come to me! My other sister came down for Thanksgiving, opened her gift. It was identical to the one that broke, and she loved it.
The last thing I purchased was a soda pop for $1.00 at Dollar Tree and a package of candy also at Dollar Tree for $1.00. Since unemployment compensation is my ohly source of income, I'm saving most of my cash for repaying my college tuition loans and Christmas shopping. Most of my Christmas presents won't be estravegant. Most of them will be gift certificates, stuff that I purchase at used books stores, used compact disk and digital video disk stores, Salvation Army, Goodwill, Dollar General and Dollar Tree. I'm trying to stick to a rigid budget.
This never happened to me because I don't play football. It's too dangerous. Suppose that there's a football player who wanted to ask out a cheerleader. He never makes the effort. Either she already shot him down, she's already going steady or he jumped to the conclusion that she'll always say no. The football player is filled with anger and spite. He wants revenge. So while playing football, a subconscious thought becomes literal action and he tackles the cheerleader instead of the opposite team. Now it won't matter if he ever had a chance or was going to strike out forever. She won't look at him much less talk to him. Oh yes, the consequences of tackling the cheerleader instead of the opposite team while playing football in a football game is a difficult thing to explain to the teacher.
