the male babysitter was the best there, don't you think?
but you know she made a right choice in her life.
feminism became a MUST for terrorized women.
I think men rule all in all but rule more and more today. They simply HAVE TO:(. They have to fight male's terrorism. and I think it is mostly be too hard to win with Erin in life for tons of lazy men good-for -nothing and claiming that this past beauty gueen simply didn't graduate any university would be..........................
but for me it is not worthy of opening my precious mouth to express many of my views but life... oh life...

Talking about it, this is what I like from Charlotte Brontë's book Jane Eyre,

"Women are supposed to be very calm generally; but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex." (Ch 12) (copied)

Powerful, huh? 8)

ps. the most interesting thing is that poor Jane Austin who wrote all these charming stories has never married and died comparatively young - at the age of 41 as I remember.
:roll:

You know what? We had a play contest last semester. Oh, sorry, forget to introduce myself. I am still a university student. We have this kind of contest every year. The play we chose was Pride and Prejudice. I was playing the role of Lady Catherine de Bourgh who is very mean. hehe... it's funny that when we were rehearsing, I needed to be very serious all the time. You know, no smiling, keeping proud, rolling my eyes when talking to Elizbeth. Sometimes I cannot help laughing by acting the role totally oppsite to my own, but still, I needed to be concentrate on that role. Guess what? We won the first first place at last.

hello:)

Hello everyone,
first Amelia - congratulations of successfull play:)
then Lennie - I don't care too much what Bronte said what a woman is supposed to be/was supposed have been etc. but what I am interested in is who started 100 years long lasting war between Great Britain and France. Were Frenchmen who started it or Englishmen? I suppose that Frenchmen but I am not so sure at all.
Here some links about big writers:
First Bronte - very ill family:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bront%C3%AB
then two Russian epic giants:
Dostojewski Fiodor:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fjodor_Dostojewski
and Lew (Leo) Tołstoy:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leo_Tolstoy
and a link about Tolstoy family generally:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tolstoy
have you noticed that these two big writers were very inclined to marry much younger women?
besides Fijodor Dostojewski was supposed to be accused for a rape on adolescent woman and committed plenty of other crimes that aren't written in his wikiedia's biography. Fijodor liked living "on the edge", hated both catholics and protestants.
It was very charasteristic that gospel in his life could mostly be seen only on pages of his next novels.
Once I watched a documentary about a visit of Tsar Peter the Great or someone like him in the Great Britain. They overdrunk "a bit" and devasted all facilities, and household where they were living. British owners sent him and his companions a bill. I don't remember if he paid.
That' s I think the biggest difference between Eastern and Western life so between eastern and western christians as I think too - the first are much more rude, ruthless and - I don't know how to put it -obedient, silent. We know that honest work only sometimes matters here and via one bad word your hard work of many years can be destroyed without single prick of conscience. Honest job as no value here, no matter you work honestly or you play around - the same salary for your work when only you have appropriate connections here. A quality of product doesn't matter.
Thus the East is underdeveloped compared to West - as it seems to me.
A lot of people are so deeply religious and so deeply cruel - it shouldnot be like that as it seems to me.
Thus I prefer Jane Austin's books.
I think that so called true love has always bad end, a lot of tears, arguments, violence, jealousy and too much boredom there. In my age I prefer boredom as it seems to me.
And sunny, warm climate the best (apart from money and some good wine - French wine of course).

ok - my list prevoius letter is "readable" as it seems to me but in the last sentence I forgot to add that " that's why I prefer boring things and boredom in my age".
probably soon I will take out and start reading for good Jane Austin's "Pride and Prejudice" that I bought some years ago for a very funny money and never ever looked into it since then. What a shame indeed. :oops:
