To the one who hasn't decided yet: I wonder what he/she'll do. I'm always curious to see how others celebrate. :)
After every poll, I will make a small "summary" with the either good or bad conclusions that I draw from what I see in the results.
I was really pleasantly surprised that nobody voted for money, although I allowed multiple choices, which makes it easier for people to decide: you don't have to choose only ONE, so you won't sit and wonder "ahhh which one am I thankful for FOR REAL?". I also see that most of the voters are grateful for real friendship - a rare good - and music (after all, Nietzsche was right "Without music, life would be a mistake.").
I wonder who was the one who voted for "Nothing". I would like him/her to expand a bit, it's sad to see that someone doesn't feel thankful for anything.
Anyway, I am glad that I got 14 votes, I hope in time I will see 1000 votes written under the poll. :)
Oh and happy birthday dad! [12.04.2009]
Pana atunci, am facut un "stamp" pentru Romania :)
They should have taken Thanksgiving Day instead, because it's a day of introspection, of awareness, of coming close to the people and things that mean the most to you. I guess this isn't en vogue around here. So I will celebrate it without a traditional dinner or anything of the sort, simply in honor of the people and things that I am grateful for.
Q: Name the most terrifying moment of your life so far.
A: When I caused a car accident and I won't go into more details.
Q: If you wanted to look very sexy, how would you dress?
A: Short pants combined with long sleeves jacket. But without any vain attitude, I can be sexy even in hip hop clothes because it comes from the inside.
Q: What famous person do other people tell you that you most resemble?
A: Mark Harmon. I have a post here to certify that, as well.
Q: What is the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
A: Swordfish, octopus, snails, shark.
Q: What dead person would you least want to be haunted by?
A: Ted (Bundy).
Q: Who would you most like to be stuck in an elevator with? Least like?
A: Most like - Mark Harmon in one of his elevator Gibbs-conferences. Least like - any asshole or smelly person.
Q: Would you rather go a week without bathing, but be able to change your clothes, or a week without a change of clothes, but be able to bathe?
A: A week without change of clothes, but to be able to bathe.
Q: You can choose your method of dying and the place in which you will die. Where would you like to die and how?
A: I don't die. :) Eh, I would choose lethal injection or in my sleep and the place...by the sea.
Q: If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which show would you choose?
A: Only one month? :( NCIS.
Q: You can select one person from history and ask them a question to which they must give a thruthful reply. Whom would you select, and what question would you ask?
A: I would choose many, I am curious about tons of unsolved mysteries of history, but right now I'd pick Ceausescu and I'd ask him: how do you think you'd have become if you didn't go to Korea and you didn't become obsessed with yourself? And tell me all there is to know about the real starters of the Revolution. And tell me: do you think that if you were still our President and NOT a totalitarian, would you have been able to do more than these politicians have, so far? Ohhh too many questions...
Q: If you joined the circus, what act would you most want to perform?
A: The act of releasing all those poor animals.

A: Not exchange, I'd want both.
Q: Would you be willing to commit perjury in court for a close friend? What if your lie would save his life?
A: Anytime, anywhere.
Q: Would you be willing to eat a bowl of live crickets for $40,000?
A: Even for less. I have living crickets at home, offer me $40,000 and I'll feast.
Q: Would you be willing to give up sex for one year if you knew it would give you a much deeper sense of peace than you have now?
A: Certainly. Even more than one year if it's necessary.
Q: If you could have anyone locked in a room so that you could torment them for a day, whom would you choose, and how would you torment them?
A: I won't give her name because she is known and she might oh-so sue me for such "calomny". If you want, I will disclose her name in private. What I'd do? Fuck her with a metal rod for a few hours, until she gets tired of so much sex.
Q: Do you feel that children should be sheltered from unhappiness?
A: Yes. But all people who have real feelings and desire love, peace and friendship should be sheltered from unhappiness..
Q: The children living next door are being horribly abused by their parents. The only way to stop the abuse is to adopt the children and care for them in your home. Would you?
A: No, I would go to the Police. Come on, this is SF.
Q: If you could have personally witnessed one event in history, what would you want to have seen?
A: The Holocaust. I'd have shaken the minds of several "people".
Q: What rights should the father have if his unmarried girlfriend wants an abortion?
A: To advise her what's best for his daughter.
Q: Would you generally be overdressed or underdressed at a party?
Q: If you could wake up tomorrow in the body of someone else currently living, would you do so? Whom would you pick?
A: Meh...Pam Dawber. But I wish I would still be me.
Q: Would you have one of your fingers surgically removed if it guaranteed immunity from all major diseases?
A: Yes. Boy, then I'd smoke 3 a day. :))
Q: Have you ever been sexually attracted to a family member or a person of an inappropriate age? How did you deal with it?
A: Family member - no. Inappropriate age - define. I have ALWAYS been attracted by older men. Is 58 inappropriate?
Q: If you could be any age again for one week, what age would you be?
Q: What outfit or article of clothing do you like to see your spouse wearing the most?
A: Ohh, anything would look good on his beautiful body. I'd prefer hoodies and jeans though.
Note: I didn't use ANY photo/template over it, I just looked at a photo and drawn after it, but without putting it OVER my drawing, so it is from scratch. I spent half an hour on the left eye, but oh well. :) I am not saying this because it was oh-so hard to draw, but because I couldn't even draw this before. I guess my mom was right when she recently told me that all I do is to block my mind from considering to do it.
I love how it came out and I love Jack. Now I have my own little Jack, made with Paint:
Taken from click
"Becoming a Marine is a transformation that cannot be undone, and Semper Fi reminds us of that. Once made, a Marine will forever live by the ethics and values of the Corps. There is no such thing as an ex-Marine. "
...and from click
"What is left unsaid in the motto is also notable. The phrase is "Always faithful." It isn't "Sometimes Faithful." Nor is it "Usually Faithful," but always. It is not negotiable. It is not relative, but absolute. Who is always faithful, though. and to what, exactly are they faithful? Interestingly, the simplicity of the phrase and the calculated neglect to specify its parameters seems to strengthen it. Marines pride themselves on their straightforward mission and steadfast dedication to accomplish it. Things do not need to be spelled out for them; they know what it means and what to do about it.
Even the use of Latin must make them uncomfortable, because they shorten an already-short motto to the more colloquial "Semper Fi." This does not misrepresent the phrase; it simply symbolizes the ability of common people to become part of a brotherhood that demands more of its members than any other comparable group in the world. "
When it comes from the outside, from people that don't have much contact with me, then it's more striking. Take it like this: if a good friend tells you that you look bad with a cloth, you will not wear it anymore and not take much offense, but if a stranger or an acquaintance tells you the same thing, you're more embarrased. At least I'd be. Well, a good acquaintance told me this:
"...saw the thumbnail picture and thought it was you. donno if that's a compliment or an offense". The photo she meant is this:
No, I don't look like a man and no, I don't have blue eyes, but maybe it's what's inside that comes at the surface and makes two people that seem to not have contact, morph into each other. It is not the first time I hear this and each time I do, I am euphoric. As I said, he IS my mentor and the apprentice's task is to become one with the mentor. My mother said to me the same thing a few times when she saw a certain photo of him and not to mention my best friend, who makes me euphoric every day. Another friend from vampirefreaks said that we MAKE a great couple. :) Note that she didn't say "would". :D
So, it can NEVER be an offense, but the greatest compliment. To be able to morph into my role model, that is the ultimate priviledge. So, you'll find me here:

Stranger: the guy doesnt even know how to kill
You: ah now you upset me. I'll find you and kill you for this. You don't insult Saw.
You have disconnected.
It's so fun to sometimes just play around. The discussion is, of course, a joke. [At least my part is :)) ]
My spirit feeds in mysterious ways, you'd say. Yes, but it feeds and lives with intensity. I realize that words cannot convey certain states and if they would, the whole core of the state would be diminished. In fact, I realized this long ago and it gives so much credit to words, who* are supposed to express every state that one person can experience [*words are living tools]. Well, to me, it is not a state of mind, but of spirit. Mind works in words and concepts, the spirit works with a fuel from beyond and would react with words like antimatter with matter. I don't care if your spirit works with concepts, mine doesn't and I like to label myself.
I can't be grateful enough for whatever force has put me face to face with this man. I will not continue to stain his beautiful assistance with words.
Stranger: i'm male and i'm horny, if you're a female you want to have an online sex?if ya don't just leave
You: you're sad.
You have disconnected.
And a normal conversation:
Stranger: and justice for all
You: man, I love Metallica!
Stranger: best album
You: that's my all time favorite band.
Stranger: Me too with Iron Maiden
Anyway, he disconnected. This site is fun to just chill and get amused. I guess I'll post some crap here from time to time. What does this make you think? Would people ever have a really philosophical discussion with a stranger, online?
.Tony: de parca ii pasa cuiva ce muzica asculti tu

Pai, ma cac pe ele de blanuri si de produse "de lux". Asa va place imaginea de sarantoc infect cu X5 la poarta gospodariei si care abia are ce manca, dar isi bea cafeaua de 2 salarii prin maghernitele de lux. Omul de succes de aici trebuie sa fie snob, incult, analfabet si daca se poate, imbogatit peste noapte, daca nu, "dezbogatit" peste zi. Dar ce e mai frumos decat sa ai o decapotabila in fata grajdului unde-ti mananci slana cu ceapa si-ti intinzi gelul din cap pana ti se incretesc degetele...? Tot ce conteaza e sa acoperiti voi cacatul cu marmura si sa-l vindeti analfabetilor de "lux". In loc sa observati voi cat de fumatori suntem, faceti programe gratuite si usurati-ne "lasatul de fumat". Nu mai vindeti tigari, nu le scumpiti cu 1 leu pe an ca n-o sa ne lasam. Sunteti toti niste retardati. Si ma rog sa nu incep sa vorbesc si despre stirile din sport, ca....
Iar despre blanuri, mi-as dori sincer sa le vad pe toate bibelourile care le adora, bagate intr-o cusca si "decojite" de piele si de fite pe viu, asa cum mor animalele alea nevinovate. Atata ipocrizie - adica daca stai in legea ta, dar nu esti "acceptat" de societate pentru ca nu esti un analfabet snob, inseamna ca esti imoral, insa daca porti blanuri si iti iei yacht pe care nici nu stii sa-l navighezi - esti om de succes.
Urmeaza jocul "Gaseste diferentele": DeLuxe - DeCacat; aveti 1 secunda.
The voice of my redeemer comes in my mind, playing over and over again, like the memory of a passionate event beyond death and life.
Of course I remember that stakeout in Marseilles, I was there, in THAT year exactly, I was there with my body and mind. How come I was there right then, right then?... I remember everything through her body, through those pages of scripts, through the clouds and all the empty rooms of Marseilles, through the port and the ships and all the things that your eyes have roamed upon.
I gave you my love
I sent you a rose with nevermore
So many years
So many hours
And only thistles on my shore
For all that it's worth
The blood on my hands
Is the blood of divinities
And all that is lost
Sound or unsound
Only bonds between you and me.
If I go will you follow
Me trough the cracks and hollows
And I would be your Cain
If you would be here now...
Handcrafted by God
You're the tower they built to reach the sky
A White Falcon beauty
My mark on your skin
Follow me down the stairs when we die
Your soul is in heaven
Your body in hell
It doesn't matter much to me
In the night of the unborn
Sound or obscene
Only bonds between you and me.
[© Tiamat - Cain]
I remember one of my greatest times and that is when I stepped in Odense [DK] and found the museum. There I saw your name on the opened art gallery and I froze. Go figure, not in a million years I'd have hoped for that, although I went to that city especially for you. And I later found out that you left just 2 days before...
You'll continue to inspire your fans with your complexity. I love your complexity! And I am looking forward to watching The Road.
[*] I made this stamp as an e-present for Vig, using Axeraider70's brushes. I'd appreciate if you didn't claim it as your own, even if it's sucky. :)
It was without warning and now I do not want to be saved. I escaped and convicted you all.
Rather nihilistic, you might say and that reminds me of the essay about Nihilism that I said I will post. But this is far from the raw concept of annihilation. See, I don't abolish this world, I just recreate it. I don't forsake the concept of the highest earthling love, I just color it so it can be rightfully called the highest. I am a sign that gets burnt on your foreheads, ahhh how I love that image.
My steps run cold on the pavement and steam rises into the leaves. The leaves become my trench.
[*The place where I stand is a secret one.]
One thing I'm completely amused by is what people discuss on the street. If you pass from a place to one that is 100km away, you'll hear the same shit. How could your universe be limited only to a few topics and words? Maybe this has a lot to do with the low standards of living. But tell me: how can this country go further when students and people with higher education are the ones who get a job the HARDEST while illiterates and living abortions get the easiest life?
I get it...you'll never want to defeat the peasant position that you've earned with so much glory.
But my fire's still blue. :)
Si, apropo...sunt tristi oamenii care au ajuns la concluzia ca doar pentru ca au citit trei carti de filosofie si caca trei citate si o mie de neologisme intr-o discutie or sa ma umileasca pe mine. De fapt, cea care se amuza sunt eu: daca ai nevoie de o haita ca sa-ti marchezi teritoriul, inseamna ca esti un adevarat mascul intelectual. Si acum e un moment in care a spune cacat imi da o stare de exaltare. Cacat. Am mai avut stari din astea. Nu am nevoie de termeni filosofici ca sa epatez si nu am nevoie sa epatez, de fapt. Am chef, in schimb, sa scriu asta acum pentru a nu scuipa in fata. Altii prefera sa scuipe in fata.
Asaaaaaa. Si acum sa ma mai amuz putin: stiti noua moda preluata de la homeless la baieti [ma rog, si fete dar la ele cica e sexy]? Aia cu pantalonii lasati atat de tare incat se vad jumate din chiloti. Care-i faza mai exact? Adica, daca mergi pe strada si ti se vede juma' de cur invelit intr-o pereche de chiloti si iti cad pantalonii de pe tine esti in trend? Bine. Stiti ca si oamenii strazii se imbraca asa, dar ei saracii n-au incotro...
Unul din filmele mele preferate e Pulp Fiction si al doilea motiv [primul e Tarantino si atat] e ca oamenii aia [mai ales Vince si Jules] isi exprima parerile intr-un mod exceptional. Seamana perfect cu my best friend and I. Da, imi place romgleza pentru ca am doua limbi materne. :) I am sooo glad that she watched it with me and loved it!! In sfarsit putem avea movie referrences din PF.
Asa, si acuuum....veselia:
[click the image and get an account NOW! :D ]
Yes, I am proud of this. It made my day.
Si, pe langa asta, constat cliseul ca nu poti sa ai incredere in nimeni, frate. Am ajuns sa prefer atitudinea flegmatica si oarecum de "nu ma bag cu capul in fata" in locul sangvinismului fals al majoritatii, plini de promisiuni si pupaturi in cur. Cand spun "nimeni", nu mai are rost sa spun ca exista cateva exceptii. Insa nu vreau sa primesc osanale [OSANALE :X], dar nu mai vreau extreme, oameni care din senin isi schimba atitudinea si nu stii de ce.
De aia am devenit oarecum antisociala, in sensul ca evit sa ma atasez de cineva si creez imaginea unei persoane care nu iese, nu are prieteni etc. Si ca sa clarific: ohooo ies, dar pentru ca nu imi plac cluburile si barurile de roc (eventual dupa ora 7) asta nu inseamna ca stau in casa.
Am asa un chef sa ma iau de articolul EMO din Libertatea [unul adept emo, NEPROTEJAT de ghearele "suicidismului" curentului emo, a vrut sa se sinucida in acelasi timp cu gagica-sa], n-am stare. Si am asa un chef sa ma iau de tampenia asta de "Fermier, caut nevasta" - care mi se pare unul din apogeurile manelismului romanesc, dar n-am stare...
Sa tineti minte ca daca sunteti emo, va trage curentul. Si sa mai tineti minte ca procentul de taranime [in sens negativ] trebuie sa fie aproape de 100% ca sa ajungeti la televizor. Si sa mai tineti minte ca ma cac pe toate astea [am avut probleme cu stomacul zilele astea si n-o sa fie prea gratios, dar meh.]. Toti adeptii tampeniei sa-si imagineze un cacat tinut in intestine vreo 3 zile asa. Braaavo!
Daca asta a fost scarbos, atunci tarfele din barurile de fite cu nume gen Alisia Partescu [numele e ales la intamplare] si haiman
But there's this new invention that I can't get the hang of and it looks extremely disgusting. Lip gloss. WHY?!... Why do you have to look as if you're drooling all the time? And to add: small flies and insects always glue to your lips and when you keep it for a long time, there's a white line between your lips and it looks as if your spit is dry. Maybe what I wrote is graphic, but what's more graphic is that crap on your lips.
And aside from all that, it's uncomfortable. I wore that crap once and my hair kept sticking to it, my fingers were sticky, everything was sticky, not to mention the prints you leave on a glass. BLERGH.
So I searched for some templates and I made these:
This is Gibbs and I as NCIS Special Agents, haha [my best friend took the photo of me and the photo of Mark is courtesy of CBS, I suppose].
This is for my cult on vampirefreaks. [the background photo is mine]
This is just the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. [photo courtesy of its owners, I am not sure exactly who].
I will put the usual DO NOT STEAL, etc message, but I don't think anyone would steal this crap. :)) Anyway, I like them, they're a way to show that boredom can be creative.

Hahaaaa! Excuse the crosses, I pasted them from Myspace. This year I haven't seen any band....which makes me rather disappointed, but meh. Hopefully I'll see W.A.S.P. :D [thanks to Michael again].
