1  Gilmore Girls / General Discussion / Re: 2nd Annual Secret Santa: Because we're just that festive! on: March 04, 2008, 06:28:03 pm
My dear ORG administrator, wonderful Godess of this wonderful place, the Secretest Santa,

I just read, with great displeasure, your story about my missing present. It was certainly sad and I'm very mad at the  coward person who stole and broke the items. And if I am mad, I can't begin to imagine your feelings for the person who converted all the money and time that you spent on a complete waste. I'm deeply sorry.

However, the only healthy thing for you to do about it is to let it go. I'm incredibly grateful for the effort you made to get me the best Christmas present (and I'm sure it would have been). Don't feel bad about it, these things happen I guess.

If this makes you feel any better, I ordered on ebay the best birthday present for a friend and it's taking a long time for it to arrive. I hope it gets here, he'll really love it.

Thanks for everything,
Marian

I have no idea what that is, and I don't have a clue if it's good or not but... it's food. =)

That would be sushi. Not so good for a pregnant woman, as the uncooked fish might cause some problems. How about this instead?:

I haven't gotten my postcard either,  but secret pal out there, don't worry, I don't mind waiting. It adds mistery.  Smiley

Yes I'm from the Basque Country (for those who don't know, it's an unnoficial country between the southern of France and the northern of Spain.) I live in a very small town named Berriz, although I spend most of my time in Durango. Bilbao if you've heard about it, is 35km far from here.
I don't care spending money to send a cd, actually it would be really cool to have a friend from Buenos Aires!
It snowed? I know that it snows is Usuaia and those high and beautiful places but in the capital of Argentina? You must be really excited!
Besos, espero que nos podamos conocer más!

Unfortunately, I've only  heard of Bilbao and San Sebastián in Euskal Herria (holy crap! I knew that the Basque language was not a romance language, but I didn't expect it to be that different from Spanish - I must sound pretty dumb  Tongue). But I bet Berriz is beautiful! Everything in Europe seems to be. You have so much history!
I have actually never been to those 'high and beautiful places'  Embarrassed, so that was the very first time I ever saw snow! So exciting! I'm sad I didn't take any pictures though, it's not like it's going to happen again in my lifetime. Oh well...
Well, it'll be really cool to have a friend in the Basque Country then! [I'll PM you]

(Hi Marian! Long time no talk!!!!)
Okay. Enough of me, I didn't even do the postcard exchange. Sad I wasn't able to.

Hey, Sarah! We haven't talked in ages! Why weren't you able to do the postcard thing? Would you like to trade postcards with me?

Mariana and Adriana I mailed out your cards today. The postman said that it would take 5-10 days to get there. Sorry if it's a little late. I bought some international stamps (at 90 cents each) for future use. So now I won't have to go to the post office. I will just stick a stamp on there and it will be ready to go. WOO HOO! Smiley

WOO HOO! I've already made room in my little board with pictures and stuff for it!
The other day I stopped by this post office that had some really cool big postcards! I didn't choose one because sending them costed $6  Angry, but I'll go buy one and send it somewhere else soon! 


*super anxiously waiting for my postcard to arrive*

You're from the Basque Country?  Shocked Sounds great! Where do you live?

And yes, of course I'd love to recieve a cd with music, but if you don't want to spend money on sending it maybe you can upload some songs for me to hear!

Yes, there's a reason why I have a Spanish name. I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina  Wink. And guess what? It snowed yesterday! For the first time in almost a century!

that is quite funny....someone that looks like me..in DEnmark..my secret twin? i better go talk to my parents

Haha, this reminds me of a Simpsons episode where Bart find out that he has a secret -used to be siamese- evil twin who has been living in the attic all his life. 

I haven't posted a picture in a while...



Did I ever show you this one? *sigh* those lazy hazy crazy days of summer...

Hi!! My postcards and Cd have been mailed this morning! It's 11.16pm right now in here. From personal experience, my penpal should get the package before the end of this week.
Hope he/she likes it! Grin
See ya!!
Leire

Leire,

I just have to say that you are awesome.  Your pen pal has got to be the luckiest member on the org!!

Totally agree!

ahhh marian.....guess next time i have to think about a better wording...

haha, sorry, I was tempted.
O God, you do it on purpose, Marian! Kiss

And again...
Sorry, I was tempted.  Wink

My postcard has finally been mailed! *does little relief dance*

To be fair, I have to say that I don't agree with your sentiments. 

I never said you did. I just happened to agree with your previous statements.

Quote from: Devilina09
Americans may have gone in with good intentions but the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. 

To be fair, I don’t think that the motives can justify the means under any circumstance. Especially not if your means involve killing people.

Bush and his allies obviously had other motives to invade Iraq –oil of course- and the president of Australia himself admitted the other day. Yes, I know who Hussein is, and I would never defend him either. However, the United States has made the situation a lot worse. And not only that, but it has claimed to do it “to save the nation”.

Quote from: Devilina09
As far as why innocents are killed, some of the insurgents are using our (American) morality and humanity against us.  Insurgents hide in neighborhoods where innocents live or surround themselves with their families.  In the end, when Americans and their allies shoot back at those who are attacking them, these women and children are often caught in the crosshairs.  It works to the insurgents advantage to claim American brutality because it fosters further hatred towards the U.S. in other Islamic countries.  This is why the area has to be dealt with delicately, which to my opinion and to many other critics of this War On Terror, don't feel has been done.

I’m sorry, but what to do you mean by “insurgents”? Those who have –violently- opposed to the country’s invasion?  Again, keep in mind that I do not defend them either, because they’ve taken their fair protests to weapons. But the US’s solution to everything seems to be killing people! “The ‘insurgents’ are hiding among civils? Kill ’em all!”  Even shooting the “insurgents” is wrong, because the answer to everything is not a massacre.

Quote from: Melissa
By these comments you believe that is was the fault of the U.S. for the destruction of Iraq?  Not to make light of the issue, but have you even heard of Saddam Hussein and are you aware of what atrocious things he did to his people as well as his country?  To blame the U.S. for his previous actions and the shambles the country was in, is quite ignorant. 

However, let’s not go from Guate-mala to Guate-peor (crap, that only makes sense in Spanish Tongue – it means, let’s not leave ‘the bad’ to get into ‘the worse’). I can fully blame the US and its allies for the atrocious things that have been taken place in Iraq in the last few years. And regardless whether the situation is just as bad or worse, Bush and his team will still be guilt of the Iraqi deaths and the absolute destruction of the area –since 2004- to me.   

Quote from: Melissa
Also back to the reporting issue.  Isn't it important to know how barbaric and evil the enemy is?  Doesn't the public have a right what kind of enemy 'we're fighting'?  Why do we only see stories in the news about how many innocents have died and not why... the insurgents hide in neighborhoods where there will be high causalities of women and children, to make it look worse.

[I’d hate to loose a valuable friendship over this, so Mel, please let me know if you’d rather not discussing the issue]
That would be blaming the insurgents who hide in such neighbourhoods for the death of the women and children (let’s just put women aside – I know how Islamic cultures work but I’m sure there are women who are just as “evil” as men), when it was the United States army the one to kill them.
I believe that war on terror is just as barbaric and evil as the dictators and terrorist – you can call Bush democratic because he was elected in the US, but has anyone voted for his invasion in Iraq?

To me, war on terror makes no sense. I can’t tell the difference between that and terrorism. It only hides the real intentions under a mask of good –even liberating- intentions.

oh and pretty stick for a great debate ...
Haha, you're sweet.

I live in Argentina, yet I think I'm entitled to have an opinion about US's foreign policy because it affects people outside the coutry, right?

We've liberated Iraq from a dictator but we had no plan past ousting Hussein.  We've ruined that country's infrastructure, we've made living there a nightmare, through our unpreparedness, we've shown other nations how we are unable to deal with these sorts of situations, we've brought the ire of other nations.  Women are more susceptible to being attacked and raped.  The Iraqi parliament is fighting within itself and cannot even gather enough members for a quorum. 

The U.S. has long put it's hand into the pot when our intervention was not needed.  Look at South America as well as other countries who have gone through some horrible civil wars to see what I am talking about.

I agree. Apparently George Bush's concept of democracy involves 655,000 Iraqi deaths. What kind of freedom is that one where you don't get to live?

Why is a Muslim who kills people considered a terrorist and a US president who kills people as well considered a hero? You've got to explain this to me because I'm lost.
The US and the British media have gone on and on about the attack that took place in London recently. For days there was nothing else going on in the BBC or the CNN. What happened was awful, and I'm not saying they should drop it; however that happens in Iraq every day and no-one says anything about it. Thousands of innocent civilis, like children are killed.

When I see the picture of George W. Bush I think he's disgusting. I'm sorry if I offend anyone, but I needed to vent it out.

I believe that calls for a dirty. Wink

ahhh marian.....guess next time i have to think about a better wording...

haha, sorry, I was tempted.

Sounds good Marian - we can talk about it and strategise when it gets a little closer - for sure!! Kiss

Can't wait!  Smiley

oh, Marlies, you're one hot chick Wink

And I know I said it like a thousand times, but it looks like you were having a lot of fun!
14  Gilmore Girls / General Discussion / Re: Project Postcard Exchange - Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Penpals! on: July 08, 2007, 03:53:48 pm
i am back now with quite some bruises..don’t ask me how I got them…
lol….i guess that is what happens on a graduation trip..

I believe that calls for a dirtyWink

Caryn- maybe we can organize a Secret Santa together! That way it's a lot less work and we get to have a SECRET person as well!

So, I'm sorry I have to send it the 10th, I wanted to do it earlier. BUT, yesterday I didn't have coins for the bus (how old fashioned, I know) and it was late already because I had to blow dry my hair because it was REALLY cold, so I had to run and get some change and I didn't make it to the post office. And tomorrow it's a national holiday, so it'll be closed. But I will send it! I promise!

Katy- I still have to find a car for you and I think I'll be picky. Maybe I'll take a picture of my  own!  Today I went to this neighborhood I've never been to and it was amazing, so perhaps I'll go back and take a pic!

Hey everyone! Here I am in my terrace sunbathing, cause it's such a great day out here!! I put some music on and came here with my laptop.

You've no idea how jaleous you have made me.  Cool

Sooks, haha, I'm glad  you were entertained (?) by my story. I should come here more often, I'm just a bit too busy lately.

Katy, that sounds super to me. I still have to buy your postcard, because I don't want to get you the same one I got for my secret pal. I'll let you know when it's sent!

I was unable to send the postcard, as I was told that the post office nearerst to my house closes at 6 pm - at the same time I happen to get out of scool. However, tomorrow morning I have to take the bus to drama class right in front of the mentioned post office, so I'll make sure my postcard is sent. Don't worry, secret pal, you'll get it on time!
[shoot, I only get to sleep like three hours tonight. I'd better take a nap before I leave]
