Вопрос дня: Человек года

Кто для вас стал "Человеком 2011 года"?
Прохоров - как первый политик не обещавший золотых гор, но упомянувший о правде и честности. (Его бы в президенты)
Навальный - как первый блогер начавший массовое расследование воровства и коррупции. (Его бы руководителем счетной палаты)
Кудрин - как министр, не скрывающий личного мнения ради карьеры. (Его бы туда же, откуда выгнали)
Парфенов, Акунин - как люди, выступившие в необычном для них амплуа. (Им бы народный фронт доверить)

А что у вас висит на елке?
у  нас многоствольная пальма- драцена ча кухне живёт. На нее вешаем круглый год всякую хрень- засохшие яблоки да цветки, забытые гостьями бусы да серёжки, подаренные часы да колокольчики )

Writer's Block: Roll the dice

What is your lucky number?





My lucky number is 931. Long story. I'll tell you since I'm currently stuck in a traffic jam that's lasted 2 hours. When I was in the 5th grade, there was an Easter worksheet the class was working on. It was addition of numbers in the hundreds. One of the answers was 931. Ask me what my friends' names were and I can't tell you. But I can tell you the answer to that math problem. And for some reason, a lot of the time, when I look at the clock it happens to be 9:31. So I figure it's lucky. If I believe in that shit. ;)

What is your lucky number?


I don't think that I really have a lucky number. I've always just used fourteen because that was my mom's volleyball number, and her favorite pick. It just kind of stuck. I guess as an adult I would probably lean towards the number 42, you know, since it's the meaning of life, the universe and everything. LMAO!

Name three things you can’t live without.
Three things I can't live without: 1. The souls of the damned upon which to feast. 2. Aborted human fetuses (as an ingredient in the special sauce on my "damned souls" sandwich). 3. Bottled "tears of Republican outrage" to wash it down with. If there isn't much of that left, I'll settle for the blood of a virgin.

Вопрос дня: Новый год

Какие чудеса могут случится в Новый год?
конечно могут быть)))
в канун нового года обычно так и происходит, например, американец Сэм Шмидт вышел из состояния комы всего за один час до того, как медики планировали отключить его от аппаратов искусственного обеспечения жизни,  и это чудо, просто мистика!! никак иначе на назвать!))))

Writer's Block: Santa Claus is coming to town

Well, I guess I never really stopped believing in Santa Claus.  After all, how can you stop believing in someone when you never started believing in him?  Don't get me wrong, I believe in the Saint Nicholas of ancient Rome.  He was a historical bishop.  But the Santa Claus that comes down the chimney?  I never believed he was real, no matter that I pretended I did at one point.  And, really, I don't get the point.  It's a cute basis for The Night Before Christmas and a necessity if I want Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer or Frosty the Snowman (the animated version, not the song), but why would I want to believe in Santa Claus?  He's totally implausible.  One of my co-workers, back when I worked at Walmart, insisted that every child should get to believe in Santa Claus, that that's a necessary part of childhood.  I don't get that.  Why would I want to believe a lie?  Why would I want my kids to believe a lie?  Enjoy a story?  Sure, but not believe it if it's not true.  Although, at least Santa's got more interesting stories than that crazy Easter bunny...

Writer's Block: Bah Humbug Day!

Take a deep breath. Now rant about something.


Just kidding. I'm tired of bah humbug.
Sure I can always find reasons and yes if I think about some things I'll certainly get worried, but why bother?
I'm finding Lene Lovich comforting right now.


I have a friend who pretty much never posts anything negative. It's all "I'm gonna have a great day!" pretty much every day. Truthfully this throws me a bit, largely cause it seems less than spontaneous, sorta ritualistic but for all I know it helps her happy. If it does, yay. But truly I can't tell if it does.

I'm happy to be alive, strangely this is always true even if I'm feeling very unhappy. How does that work?
Funny how I remain so grateful for something that's a continuous given. Sometimes I wonder what I've forgotten. I feel like I know big fat secrets I just don't remember what they are.

:)
Love.
Peace to you.

All right, I'm gonna be a total smartass.  I can't live without air.  Like, literally.  My body shuts down without it.  I hear it's a highly unpleasant experience.  Hopefully, I'll never have to go through it.  I can't live without water, either.  I tried once.  Well, not deliberately.  I got the stomach flu and got dehydrated.  It felt like a small taste of hell.  Imagine being so thirsty you can't think about anything else.  Now imagine that you can only keep down small sips at a time, if that.  Now add in that you've been like this for several days.  Now imagine that your mouth and hands have started tingling.  Oh, and this morning?  You can't even handle sips of Gatorade or water.  And this whole time, you've been really tired.  Last night, you started begging your mom to take you to call the ambulance because you're just that miserable.  But she managed to convince you to wait for the hospital until your appointment with your surgeon today.  Yeah.  Not fun at all.  And that's putting it mildly.  As I said, I can't live without water.  And I have no intention to try again.  I can't live without food.  It makes me much more headache-prone.  And I don't get just your normal headaches.  No, I got to get migraines when I get headaches.  I know.  It don't seem fair sometimes, do it?  But then, that's life, or so I hear.  Yup...  Those are the three things I can't live without -- air, water, and food.  In that order.  Because lack of air will kill me faster than dehydration and dehydration will kill me quicker than starvation.  I can survive without just about anything else -- and that doesn't count sleep because sleeping is something I do, before anyone says anything.

Writer's Block: Bare necessities

I'm pretty sure I can't live without air.
I need sustenance.
A place to live.The basics.
Food, clothing, and shelter.That's all anyone really needs.
Though technology is taking over people's minds.I bet everyone thinks they need an ipod nowadays.
If I didn't have internet, I would gladly move on to better things. Such as a writing desk with a journal and a pencil.
Name three things you can’t live without.
