Writer's Block: It’s the end of the world

I'd sleep in, then bundle up the dog and go to my parents' house, watch TV and crochet.

What can you do in a day? If you know it's the end, better to relax with family then frantically try to cram a lifetime into a day.
If you knew today was your last day on Earth, how would you spend it, and why?

Writer's Block: American Censorship Day!

I do not support this bill, it's ridiculous and it's all because of movies and music. Don't they have bigger things to worry about? 
Today, Congress holds hearings on the first American Internet censorship system. This bill can pass. If it does the Internet and free speech will never be the same. [Learn more here.] Do you support this bill?

Writer's Block: It’s the end of the world

If you knew today was your last day on Earth, how would you spend it, and why?

Oh, probably cleaning my room, shredding my journals, wiping my disk drive.
I would NOT do my laundry. I WOULD call my friends and tell them how much fun I had knowing them.

Why? I want my secrets to STAY secret. I've always HATED laundry. I've had a lot of fun knowing my friends.

Сколько вам нужно денег, чтобы чувствовать себя независимым?


Хм...а я думала независимым ни от чего делает как раз отсутствие денег)))


Сколько мне нужно денег? Чтоб на все, что мне нужно хватало и чтобы не никому ничего не была должна.

Writer's Block: Black Friday

I got
1. A bread maker = to make bread using non-wheat flours
2. A steamer = to steam vegetables and rice
3. A pair of pants and a pair of jeans
4. 2 sweaters
5. A hardback copy of Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code"
6. 3 CDs = Taylor Dayne "Can't Fight Fate," Joan Osbourne ( the one with the song "One of Us" ), Madonna "Ray of Light"
7. Another book "Wishcraft: how to get what you want"
8. 3 magazines ( 2 of which have articles on Alan Rickman's new play Seminar )

That's it!

Happily I did all but the magazines through thrift stores. Thrift stores rule!

Вопрос дня: Царь

Никаких таких Царей. Сами себе изберем кого-нибудь. Время царей закончилось в 1917 году, по крайней мере, об этом говорилось в школьном учебнике истории.Да и не может быть в России царь с полномочиями английской королевы: на балы ходить да в 5.00 чай подавать....Наши цари все время воевать собирались куда-нибудь. Вот и Дмитрий Анатольевич, чувствуется, занят поиском врагов...

совсем немного: чтобы хватило на коммунальные услуги, еду, кой-какие обновки иногда в одежде, обслуживание авто, даже не хочу новый, немного для расширения жилплощади, чтобы места всем хватало, на развлечения не надо и так жить весело, на кружки детям и дополнительное образование, таким образом мне бы хватило 50 000 рублей в месяц!

Writer's Block: Family ties

What do you love to do with your family?

Truthfully? Babble. I come from a largish family and I love to get all of us in a room and enjoy the verbal free-for-all which ensues. There can be 2- 3- and even 4-way conversations, and I might be in 3 conversations at once. It requires mental agility, a fast wit, and sharp hearing, but it's FUN. There's a lot of love flying around, even when disagreements happen.
Dear God

Writer's Block: It’s the end of the world

I would spend it with my family together under one roof. I'd want to memorize their faces as much as I could, leave them with something to remember me by, and of course take as many photos as possibles so they can remember me. I would eat my favorite foods, enjoy every emotion I feel and leave letters addressed to those I couldn't see so they would have something from me so they knew I didn't forget them.

Вопрос дня: Деньги

Знаете, человеку не так много надо!
Однажды я тоже задалась подобным вопросом и услышала, как один человек сказал - "Мне бы просто сходить в кафе, находящееся поблизости и выпить кружечку кофе... без инвалидного кресла..."

Так вот я могу с уверенностью сказать, что и без денег я вполне буду чувствовать себя независимой!!! Ведь у меня есть ВСЁ-ДВЕ РУКИ, ДВЕ НОГИ,КОТОРЫЕ МОГУТ РАБОТАТЬ; РАЗУМ, КОТОРЫЙ ЗДРАВО МЫСЛИТ; ГЛАЗА, КОТОРЫЕ МОГУТ РАДОВАТЬСЯ РАЗНООБРАЗИЮ КРАСОК; УШИ, КОТОРЫЕ СЛЫШАТ МУЗЫКУ, КОТОРАЯ ДОСТАВЛЯЕТ СЕРДЦУ РАДОСТЬ; НОС, КОТОРЫЙ РАЗЛИЧАЕТ МНОЖЕСТВО АРОМАТОВ; ДА В КОНЦЕ КОНЦОВ, ЧТО МОЖЕТ БЫТЬ ПРЕКРАСНЕЕ ВКУСНОЙ ПИЩИ?ЕСТЬ ЯЗЫК, КОТОРЫЙ МОЖЕТ РАЗЛИЧАТЬ ЭТИ ВКУСЫ.
Я счастлива и независима, имея все перечисленное!!! А ведь есть те, кто лишен чего-то из перечисленного списка...Кто-то лишен зрения...слуха...языковой речи...свободного самостоятельного передвижения...есть и лишенные разума, но они тоже ЛЮДИ!!!
Подумайте, теперь сколько Вам надо для независимости??? И всегда ли независимость измеряется количеством денег???

Writer's Block: American Censorship Day!

Today, Congress holds hearings on the first American Internet censorship system. This bill can pass. If it does the Internet and free speech will never be the same. [Learn more here.] Do you support this bill?

No. Censorship means letting others decide what you should hear. anyone who throws away freedom to information is a fool, and soon will be a deluded fool.

But what of hatemongering? What of pornography? We are only safe from the dangers of censorship if we do not censor. Who decides what is hatemongering? What is obscene? attractive as it might be to attempt to protect ourselves from such 'immoralities', the truth is that we CAN NOT AFFORD to grant ANY human agency that power because none can be trusted not to use it to further their own agenda, whatever it may be.

I don't like Nazis. I don't like paedophiles. it remains MY responsibility to accept or reject their utterances, and NO ONE else's

I would pack because if I'm not on Earth, then space is the only other option. Am I leaving with the Doctor? Please say yes.

Obviously, this person has been watching too much Doctor Who (and I need to make me a DW/TW icon).

Icon: Ianto Jones/GDL or Ten/David Tennant?

Writer's Block: Black Friday

Sadly I spent my entire paycheck, and those to soon follow, on a PS3. I'm not terribly proud of what was one of my most pathetically expensive impulse buys. I'm not sure what I was thinking. I was just going to buy Mass Effect for the nostalgia and then this happens. I'm not too good at budgeting money. (I'm not sure how long these are and I don't care, I don't get to write that often.)

Сколько вам нужно денег, чтобы чувствовать себя независимым?

В России — любой суммы мне будет мало для этого: такие вещи как безопасность, образование и медицина должны обеспечиваться централизованно, а не в индивидуальном порядке. Люди, которые получают миллион долларов в месяц, живут за колючей проволокой под охраной автоматчиков (т.н. "элитные посёлки"), а их семьи живут в западной Европе или других пригодных для жизни местах.

В Штатах — 120000 USD в год до налогов.

В других странах — mileage may vary.

I would spend it with the one's I love the most, doing the most extraordinary things. That I couldn't even imagine of doing now. Why? Because, you only live once, & if you knew that it was your very last day, why not make it count? :P

Honestly, I'd spend the whole day crying.
I'd be in fear of what was in store for me after death.
I'd apologize for all the wrongs I've done and anything that I might've done to hurt someone.
I'd tell the people who I love that I love them.
It would be a sad last day, but that's all I'd want to do.

Writer's Block: It’s the end of the world

Today will certainly turn out to the last day on Earth for a number of people. I'm sure that for many of them there will be no time to prepare for what what comes next. Indeed, that's the crux, isn't it. What comes next? For me it's new life, eternal life, and if you haven't prepared for it any better than you've prepared for the life you have now, you've made a big mistake. Eternity is a very long time and we will all spend it somewhere. We actually have a choice about that. If you believe that this life is an accident of some long past chemical reaction and an unbelievable string of chance mutations, then you will spend eternity in darkness, separated from the One who created you. If however you have the courage to be willing to believe that your life is the result of intentional design, then you have the opportunity to spend eternity in the light of Heaven with the One who created you for that very purpose. If I knew that today was my last day on Earth I would spend it in prayer and sharing His love with those around me. I invite you to join me and this is my prayer:
 
"Father in Heaven: Please forgive me that I have spent my life selfishly, in disobedience and sin. I know that you forgive because you sent your own son, Jesus, who is the Christ, to die, a sacrifice, in my place. I accept His blood as the remission for my sin, Father. I believe that you have raised him from death, that I also might have new life. Help me with my unbelief Father, so that l can be filled with His Holy Spirit. Guide me Father so that, from this day forward, I can live my life for Him. I pray in His name, and for your glory, Amen."

Repent! It means, "change your paradigm". Confess! It means "surrender" yourself to the One who loves you. Now, pray this prayer and you will be saved from eternal darkness.

Hmm. Just 24 hours? That's a LOT of score settling to work into a rather small time frame. And that doesn't even count the people that I really don't have anything against, but wouldn't mind making suffer.

Сколько вам нужно денег, чтобы чувствовать себя независимым?
Пожалуй, около двухсот тыр в месяц - впрочем, понимаю, что это иллюзия: как раз чем больше, тем больше всем должен и зависим. Больше всего я мечтал, в конце девяностых, о регулярной "тыще баксов в месяц" - и даже не заметил, как перевалил её, и как мало её оказалось...
Так что, как сказал царь Соломон, "Не наполнится брюхо хаваньем".

Вопрос дня: Деньги

Чтобы потерять зависимость от денег, мне хватило бы 10 мегадоллвров. Я бы положил их в банк под 9 процентов. Вот тогда можно и не париться:):):)
Прибыль в месяц 72 килобакса.
Разложим эту сумму на каждый день и получим 2,5 тысячи долларов в день, на карманные расходы.... да, это не плохо.
А еще, 10 миллионов долларов можно превратить в 4 квартиры в ближнем Подмосковье.
Покупаем 4 хаты и сдаем их, ну по тысяч 30. Навар 120.000 рублей в месяц, как минимум. Тоже не плохо....
Дайте кто 10 000 000 $
Замучу такой примитивный заработок.
P.S.
Хотя знающие люди, могут эту десятку удвоить за год. Но это риск.....

The exact same way I intend to spend it now. I'm gonna watch this DVD that I got from the library, then I'm gonna try and finish my Christmas shopping. Later tonight, I also plan to meet a friend for dinner and game night at her house. The only thing I'd change is I'd probably stop somewhere for a beer on the way home.

Last day of my life, how would I spend it, hm? Coming up with a music playlist for my funeral. Getting my documents in order so people will know what the heck is going on with my finances, websites and other stuff when I'm not around to explain. Dang, I'm too practical, huh? Oh, and then I'd write some kind of "goodbye I love you all and I forgive you all and I hope you all forgive me and remember me kindly" kind of letter. And then I'd have sex. :D  With as many people as possible.

I'd spend it at my computer, lurking over the NASA Tweetup. There's no sense in worrying over things I can't control (even if I do sometimes tend to do that: I used to do it a lot more, but sort of used my head as a battering ram against that wall for a while, until I tamed it a bit more). Otherwise, I'd probably hobble out, buy a bag of subflower seeds, then catch the bus to Friendlee's and have a "Frabulous, frosty Fribble".

Making sure that everyone I know and love are aware of it. Asking them all to forgive any harm or hurt I caused and asking them to forgive others too, not burden themselves with grudges or bitterness. I'd like to thank those who made my life joyous, who helped me to grow, who accepted me flaws and all. I'd like to tie up any loose ends and do what I could to make it easier on those left behind. What a blessing to know the day and hour if one could do even part of all that!

Well, if it's the actual end of the world and we're all going out together, I'd like so spend it just as I am right now. In bed, on my laptop, my cats sleeping and cuddling as I drink my coffee.

If it's my last day physically on Earth, I'd be getting the cats in their carriers and ready to go with me.

I would spend the last of my day with my friends and family. I think I'd go on a adventurous walk even if it was just me. I think it would be a fun thing to do. I wouldn't want to stop going if you get what I mean. I'd want to reach my end and have a great time. Their is no way that I could spend the last hours of my day trying to do all the things I wish I would have done before. So with out regrets I'd do the only thing that I could think of and that would be to just have that adventure for a day before I died, walk as far as I can walk.  It's silly but I've always thought to myself, "Maybe I was born in the wrong era" I admit I like our technology. Sometimes though I wish we could just wonder around like the old times~
