Мне очень нравится русский язык... whereas French can go ahead and blow me. Fucking papers. Fucking editing. Fucking rewriting.

But hey, at least I'm capable of reading Simone de Beauvoir and Maurice Leblanc! *stabs self*


My birthday is coming up in a few days. I plan on having ungodly amounts of sex and drinking copious amounts of alcohol to soothe my heart from the pain that will result from entering my third (3rd) decade of existence. (By "sex" and "alcohol" I really mean "I'll probably do homework and maybe drink some milk to celebrate." God, my life is thrilling.)

For you language geeks out there, check out this Linguaphiles post. Want a pen-pal? Want to learn new/improve your languages? There you go. It's a great idea. I'm sticking to French, Russian, and Italian, for now... although I do have plans to study German and Spanish in the near future...


If anyone cares, I am writing a rather humorous new story (read: novel). The three people who've read it so far say they love it, and they've all burst out laughing. One of them wasn't even related to me! If you'd like to read what I have written thus far, let me know & I'll e-mail it to you. No guarantees that I'll actually finish it.


“I tried to pass over in my sleep, but that didn’t work,” Margie said pensively. Well, of course it didn’t work: ghosts can’t sleep. “I tried to hire an exorcist, but they don’t work for people who can’t pay them. I prayed to pass on over sixteen times, and when that didn’t work, I tried to kill myself.” The fact that she was already dead obviously hadn’t struck her. “I also tried to go toward the light, but I couldn’t find any light to go to.”

Tonya cleared her throat. “Maybe, ah, you aren’t meant to head into that light?” she asked tentatively. Pawel closed his eyes. I struggled to hold back my laughter.

I'm sorry! If it's any consolation, the reason why I don't post my stories online anymore is because nobody ever comments on them... & if nobody comments, then I can only assume that nobody's reading. For a variety of reasons, I have a slightly different attitude toward writing my current story than stories of yesteryear--I'm writing for pleasure, not for completion. That has made a HUGE impact on how I'm viewing my story.


Here's what little I wrote of the scene with you and Jensen... if you'd like, I can adapt it and include you two in my current story (you may end up being a werewolf... or dead... in the end. No guarantees):

It didn’t take too long of following the road for the pair to spot a large building in the distance. It resembled a bed and breakfast that George and his family had stayed at once for a family vacation to Michigan. It was set back from the road, perched on a small hill.

The man was a few inches shorter than George and with at least ten years on him, with short, neatly trimmed brown hair and broad shoulders. He was wearing jeans and a black t-shirt. Tied around his neck and worn as a cape was a large, scruffy looking skin.
“Is that a—” Oleg started, eyes wide.
“It’s a bear skin,” Priya sniffed. “He’s worn that awful thing for the last five years. Ever since that ridiculous bet—”
The man crossed his arms and snorted. “Oh, come on, Pri,” he said. “You didn’t even know me before I took the bet. Hell, the only reason we’re married is due to that damn thing.”

I'm intrigued as to how a bear skin cape would lead me to marrying Jensen... or um, how Priya married "Jensen."

You don't have to include me in the new story, but you can if you like. However, when you become famous for writing an awesome novel and the rights get purchased to make a movie out of it, all I ask is that you have to AT LEAST make Jensen audition and I be there so I can see how pretty he is in person.

It's partially based on this fairy tale: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bearskin_(fairy_tale)

Ultimately, "Jensen" would be too attached to the bear skin to stop wearing it... and he's a computer programmer, too. ;)

Of course you'll come to the auditions! :P

So I'm the awesome youngest sister who gets the hot guy in the end? Yes! And like the idea of him being a computer programmer... makes him slightly nerdy, how I like them. :-D

Okay, we can stop discussing this now. I'm getting too attached to my life as "Priya."
