QotD

Ну то знакомое всем волшебное чуство,когда ты предвкушаешь шелковую постель или налитую пеной ванну, а потом постель.. Когда тебя уже не держат ноги, а впереди все мягко и томно..и вот ты уже там, уже мысли положил туда.В негу.В кровать или в ванну, а сам скидываешь последнее, чтоб присоединиться..мряу….

Me, 5 years ago, to a popular photo of John and Yoko in bed:

-Excellent recording of disgusting people and their abhorringent relationship__________Etat

-Why even comment if it’s to write something negative? Keep your small minded thoughts to yourself and just change websites if beautiful pictures and different life styles bother you. ____Mya, July 20, 2010 at 6:12 pm

-Why don’t you exercise some open mindedness, mya – even a modest effort will go a long way, believe me, in your transition to a sociable person who appreciates opinions of others[…] ____ETat, July 20, 2010 at 10:49 pm

[what I do now]:

I am sick with flu (or who the hell knows what this crap is); cranky, feverish and angry that I had to cancel my plans to go to Eastman for New Year’s. Sneezing, coughing, holding my suddenly cast-iron head, having no appetite (and food taste like carton, anyway) and bored.

A self-quote

…A Cosmo bought by a stranger in a bar gathering on October evening few years back; a sketchy car conversation with a spouse of 18 years in front of the doctor’s office; a drunkard’s threats one glorious morning in the park of an old city – all these are bombs that blew your life into pieces.

Or there could be standstill days, nor here not there, between the skies and the water, end of the old routine and start of the new. Like when you finally graduated, and whole race of the past half-a-year, permanent lack of sleep, endless rush, no-time-to-look-at-the-mirror’ life hit the brakes.
