Ask me anything-anything at all- and I will try to answer-at Formspring!<---click this link!..
i want to travel. perhaps this is the only reason i am interested in learning a few languages. i am certainly not adept at understanding/absorbing this sort of information. for someone who has never had any permanent home you'd think i would loathe the idea of bouncing around from continent to continent. paris, rome, prague, san sebastian, tokyo visited and revisited... hundreds of others are on my ever growing list of places i want to see, touch, hear, taste and smell.
i love art and music.
very eclectic in my taste for both.
in art, one minute you might find me admiring the simplicity or bright and bold style of modern genres. in the very next i could be enthralled in something of dramatic, romantic or ancient/iconic style.
(art history minor) my idea of good music is very much the same in its extremes.
like most women-
i love shoes.
i love to shop.
i love to mess around with fashion and make-up.
spend too long without the indulgence of these and i feel deprived in a way that is almost unbearable. ;P
tv and movies are a sanctuary from reality i enjoy very much.
can't tolerate anything very sad or too scary- i have had enough of these in my own life that i don't wish to bear witness to it on the screen. I suppose mostly what i mean by this is if it's TOO real- then i want to bail. which is probably why i prefer my action to be of the untouchable spy/superhero/nija/sci fi or fantasy variety
i enjoy reading... especially thrillers and poetry. i also write poetry. you can check mine out and vote for your favourite poets here-
i am also a sort-of speed reader.
so much so, that without easy access to a library/bookstore and with unencumbered time? i am forever out of material with which to satisfy the need.
certain sports i find entertaining or wish/like to participate in:
football-especially when its too close to call. do NOT!!! dis my men of deep orange and blue! i may not have a home town but i have a home team- even if they are prone to last minute fuck-ups disease. ;)
lastly, i am currently addicted to the following:
exercise induced endorphins
vanilla zero coke
the colour of gold, metallic cherry red and deep hues of green.

MoviesClaire: "You actually think I'm playing you? Did this feel like an assignment to you, three days, all this? What was the objective, rug burn?"
sway: (after boosting shannon the 1971 plymouth hemi barricuda) it had to be a girl car.
memphis: girl car? what kind of girl drives a hemi 'cuda?
sway: i'll show you.(she slicks on the red lipstick that was in the console)
sway: (puckers her lips at him and laughs.) matches the car.
memphis: what's next? blush? mascara?
sway: next time i'll pull out the, uh... leather, high heels and pink underwear for you.
"You know what's the worst thing about somebody breaking up with you? Is when you remember how little you thought about the people you broke up with and you realize that is how little they're thinking of you. You know, you'd like to think you're both in all this pain but they're just like 'Hey, I'm glad you're gone'."
"What's this 'we'? You slapped him, you fight him."
kara: you did it, we're free!
bond: kara, were inside a prison in the middle of a russian airbase in afganistain!"
"who carries an unloaded gun? would i carry an unloaded gun? would anyone i know carry an unloaded gun? what do they shoot people with in canada, serviettes? does the word "bullets" mean anything to you?!?"
deMarco: i guess it's all true. the red outfit, the knives. what happens now? you just kill me, straight out, just gulp?
elektra: don't worry. death's not that bad.
deMarco: how do you know?
elektra: (she whispers in his ear)i died once.
"it wasn't personal, what's that mean anyway? all that means is it wasn't personal to you. well, it was personal to me, it was personal to alot of people. and whatever else something else is, it ought to begin by being personal."
"When exactly do we go from being kids to being just people, I'm not sure. I do know that it's not about turning a certain age or graduating from school. It happens when you're not paying attention. We go from playing with our friends to playing with our friends' feelings. Without our knowledge or consent, childhood slips away in the night and our innocence escapes us and we wake up one morning to find we have become who we are."
"i will eviscerate you in fiction. every pimple, every character flaw. i was naked for a day; you will be naked for eternity."
"any nightmare you could dish out, would be like a sweet dream to me"
joe:"say it again lucas."

Tony Stark: "Am I making you uncomfortable?"
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: "Oh, no, I always forget to wear deodorant and dance with my boss in a room full of people I work with in a dress with no back."
Tony Stark: "Well, you look great, you smell great. But I could fire you if that would take the edge off."
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: "I don't think you could tie your shoes without me."
Tony Stark: "I'd make it a week."
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: "A week, really? What's your social security number?"
Tony Stark: [he pauses]
Tony Stark: "Five..."
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [smiling] ""Five?" You're missing just a couple of digits."
Tony Stark: "Right, the other eight. Well, I have you for the other eight."
"if you want to live, never leave my side!"
s: let us hurry. there is nothing to fear here.
i.j.: that's what scares me.
"fester, fester, fester. rot, rot, rot. poor you, you had to grow up here."
"Life has to be a little nuts sometimes. Otherwise it's just a bunch of Thursdays strung together."
"ultimately jonathan concluded that if we are to live life in harmony with the universe, we must all possess a powerful faith in what the ancients used to call "fatum", what we currently refer to as destiny."
"Your work... is very dangerous and alive. And I love your poems; they move me. But that's not who you really are... You're running from your past and your pain. And yet you keep it so... close to you, so you don't have to be afraid of who you are... because you're beautiful."
"perhaps i'll take you to my home in africa. you must see where all life began."
"i started thinking. i was tired of doing things somebody else's way, and it was always going be somebody else's way."
inside peters own head- he plays out the following scene...
therapist:(british accent) "i think you are stuck in the pre-relationship moment of infatuation, and you need to be reminded that a real relationship has many, many, many more stages."
peter: "stages. i like that."
therapist: "relationships are best measured by farting."
peter: "excuse me?"
therapist: "the stages of the relationships can be defined by farting.
Stage 1 is the conspiracy of silence. this is a fantasy period where both parties pretend that they have no bodily waste. this illusion is very quickly shattered by that first shy, "ooh, did you fart?" followed by the sheepish admission of truth.
this heralds a period of deeper intimacy; a period i'd like to call the "fart honeymoon" where both parties find each other's gas just the cutest thing in the world. ha ha ha!
but of course, no honeymoon can last forever. and so we reach the critical fork in the fart. either the fart loses its power to amuse and embarrass, thereby signifying true love or else it begins to annoy and disgust, thereby symbolizing all that is blocked and rancid in the formerly beloved.
do you see what i'm getting at?"
therapist: "peter? peter? earth to peter!"
peter then comes out of his reverie because someone really is calling his name.
faith:"How could you do this to me?" peter:"Because I'm in love with you!"
faith:"Ha! What kind of an excuse is that?"
W: "It's me!"
C: "Prove it!"
W: "You're a dick."
jake: "it's a long story, something about the violation of expectations and a crushing loss of faith, and love, and life, and art."
bill: "so it's a girl?"
bill: "i've had a little bit of girl trouble myself lately. but it is better to have loved and lost, am i right?"
jake: "she was a unique constellation of attributes; she was my halley's comet. but the universe is designed to break your heart, right?"
bill: "a philosopher as well as an artist, yes, it is we who suffer most."
jake: "yes, with the possible exception of the victims of violent crime."
"well, when the bow breaks, the cradle will fall. and it has fallen here; it has fallen. makers of men; creators of leaders; be careful what kind of leaders you're producin' here."
Nick: "Close your eyes. Close your eyes. Close... your... eyes. You're safe. You can relax. I'm not going to kiss you. He's gonna be so sorry he lost you, so stop worrying. Forget the past. Forget the pain. And remember what an incredible woman you are. You do that and he'll realize what he lost."
Kat: "Holy crap. You're worth every penny."
Celine: "Baby, you are gonna miss that plane." Jesse: "I know."
I don't watch often- and i watch everything on dvd or dvr... so i am perpetually ROYALLY behind! please don't tell me anything that may spoil the following:

BooksLOVE love love romantic poetry... oh neruda, shelley, etc. etc. and in fiction- i could start but i might never stop. oooooh but one guilty-not so secret now- among my faves? The Villa by Nora Roberts. Yes- say what you will about romance titles... formulaic blah, blah, blah... I know- and i am not about to argue with you. However i was turned onto this one in particular- for my love of intrigue and all things italy. Full of historic mystery, under the skin violence, sappy romance, rich characters and who-done-it lines to boot. Some think it marks a dark stain on my bibliophile status- I DON"T CARE. i can read it over and over again and never tire of it. wish it was a giant Hollywood movie... or a tv series- definitely a story i would love to see come to life! but for the exception of one thing... i always thought that the setting should have been placed entirely in Italy/Europe.
ooookay, i have no idea what is wrong with this section and no matter what code i put in it wont allow for it. It keeps shrinking the script the more i type. AAAARGH-uh!
Heroesyeah, it seems cheesy- my parents. but if you even knew an 'nth of what they and we have been through... god- you'd be tired.

uuummmmn, i think my catch phrase would be "seriously"... i say it waaaaay too often.
"they know best how they can mess with us- nursing an opinion's getting dangerous... and in a world where good's not good enough, let's get loaded and kick up a fuss."
i'm a sexy car/supercar/sportscar nut...
new 2012 Pagani Huayra
RossinBertin- sexysexy 2012 Brazilian Supercar
<----- dude! make the new gold one's more accurately like this-
i swear i am melting into a puddle of pure lust at the thought.
they've done it in a sort of brassy gold- which is alright but INMHO missed the mark.
porsche carrera gt.
i am amused by your musings- no one ever guesses correctly. sooo... since a few have asked- i thought i would just go ahead and add this info to my page.
what exactly is my background?
i am mostly slovenian with a dab of each of the following-
scotch-irish, french, english and cherokee indian.
soooo... some notes new and old: i have wildly outrageous dreams and zero expectations. i love; music of all kinds, cheesy romantic comedies (god bless the manicorns of the film world) and action flicks (particularly of the secret agent and/or martial arts variety), funny-slightly sarcastic-tall-dark and sexy guys, traveling and learning about lands other than my own place origin, the ocean in all its terrifying glory, weeks on end of rain, sunny beaches, reading and writing poetry (Click here if you are an Online Poet), almost every colour in the rainbow, noisy clubs or parties, hanging out on the couch with my friends while doing absolutely nothing... and shopping for designer shoes. what else do i love? well, you'll just have to friend me and find out.-
at times i can be totally out there (re: a regular extrovert) probably the one laughing, joking around and speaking way too loudly in the restaurant. at others? so quiet you might wonder if i am still breathing (re: introverted or in hiding) - truth? i am just taking it all in or daydreaming... maybe both. you might have to dance on my head to get my attention.
life is hectic- i almost never shut my computer off- so if you're on, it says i am .. and you're wondering why i am not answering you- it's probably because i'm not really here... just be patient- i will get to you, promise.
caffeine makes me crazy- just one cup of coffee or 3 sodas and i'm wired/shaky/excited/talking too fast, bouncing off the walls and completely nuts- but my friends love me anyway. right? right? :D :D
i speak with as much polish as is required given the sitch. (alright, with a none too mild tendency toward run-on sentences and thoughts- but still!) at 12 i probably had attained the vocabulary of a 56yr old college professor- re: parents who went back to school late in life and took me to class with them because they didn't trust sitters. my written grammar skills? well, lets just say- they have always been left wanting- no matter the level to which i've become educated.(i am afraid i am slowly but surly becoming like my mother- the oracle in which any and all answers may lie. or like i like to call her, DATA.) anyway... past participles, punctuation? unless it's dire i usually can't be bothered. also, please don't correct me- like all things pointed out in the moment when you know you're wrong but can't, don't or won't change- it's highly irritating. on a bit of a tangent here- at the same time? i am game for being the tease-ee- as i often am also the 'teaser'. also quick with quips. aaaaand i will admit to enjoying/perpetrating the occasional practical (but not mean) joke. muuuuwahh hah ha ha... yeah. ;P
i try to limit any compulsive behaviors to that which will (hopefully) not kill me- like exercising (ever hear of an endorphin-addict?) and shopping for shoes... be that as it may- some could be considered dangerously close to unwittingly risking bodily harm.... read- my mouth sometimes runneth amok....
sadly, honest to a fault. re: saying the wrong thing, at the just right wrong moment, that gets me into trouble... or being just plain blunt- to the point of sticking my foot so far down my throat that one might wonder if it were retrievable.
i dress to the nines almost all of the time. unless i am at home. when i am home it's definitely: hop out of the proper clothing get into comfy (but nice) lounge wear and walk around barefoot. something i adopted long before my three yr stint in o' canada.
here's an update... thinking about going back. Vancouver may be calling... AAAAAAAAAAAAACK right? well, we shall see...
watch out! ;P going to toot my own horn here... i am a fabulous cook. i love to bake. i can say this with confidence (swear it's not Freud's super-ego talking!) because people genuinely rave about it to people other than myself. conversely? or perhaps heh... perversely? while i might love to do this- cook for others- i am usually so tired of looking at/smelling whatever it is that i've just concocted- i wont eat it. though i might try just about anything once- my taste is intensely specific. yes, yes, i am a strange one. non?
let us see... what else? ummm- did i mention i lived in Canada for three very loooong years of my life? yes, i think i did. i believe the word looooooooong bears repeating.
for reasons that escape me, i am a complete insomniac. i have been dealing with it since i was born. don't believe me? if you can- ask my mother. poor thing. i hardly let her sleep at all the first 3 years of my life. since then i have become highly adept at entertaining myself whilst everyone NORMAL is asleep. lucky bastards.
my eyes are hazel/greenish/grayblue (as in my eye doctor revealed recently that something technically makes them hazel- but they hardly appear that way often.) and obviously- like most hazel eyes, they have a split personality which will change depending on what i am wearing- and people swear according to what mood i am in. well. honestly. more oft then not they seem greengray to me. my hair is long, curly and dark red- i had it short once and once was enough. can you see the fists of death lady from the comic strip Dilbert? yeah, triangle hair... not pretty. yes... people (and by people i mean friends and such) i have supremely soft skin- (seriously. what is up with the constant petting??? you'd think people had never heard of body balm.) [btw- you can easily make your own and avoid the high cost of superfluous fillers in the kind from fancy shops. just melt the following over low heat: 1 1/2Cups cocoa butter or shea butter and add a 1/2Cup regular- NOT VIRGIN -coconut oil or sweet almond oil... cool it down then add a 1/2 Ounce of your fave fragrance, whip it and voila! uber soft, beautifully scented, skin is yours!]- where was i? oh- yeah- my point was on the train of thought towards explaining that this does not mean that i am a stranger to hardships in life. which leads into the next exit- i merely take care of myself as much as i am able because i have been homeless more times than i care to think about. what plagues- i continually have nightmares of that regrettable past. shuuuuudder...
on the transient subject- i have just been informed (over my shoulder), ahem, corrected on the total number of moves in my life thus far... 30. i have moved 30 times. incidentally this is why i say i have never had a home town. what's funny- not haha funny- but funny none the less? i know beyond a shadow- that if i blessedly live to a healthy and happy old age- there will be more to come. something else- i am sickly addicted to the constant change.
october 6th, 2006
ha. lets make that 33 now. sheesh!
if i were a better writer- my profession in life would be to write for a travel mag- preferably travel and leisure- my fave mag!.
if i were insanely wealthy- i would be a professional philanthropist rather than a part time one.
if i could sing to save my life- i would be a part of an indie girl rock band. (maybe i should do it anyway... impress the world with my rendition of a cat stuck in a bathroom shower stall while the water is running. ;})
if i had better moves on the dance floor- i would compete in latin dance.
if magically the previous were to all come to me in a blinding moment of truth/realization/ability i would find a way to do all four before i die. (kudos if you can pick out where that particular half-quote came from)
for those who asked- and those who've yet to visit... translation service link follows ;) : babelfish
for those who aren't up on their slav :P- this is even better...
help! i don't get wtf she's sayin'
or you could just use translate.google.com... it's up to you! (*_^)
Who I'd like to meet:anyone fun, interesting and preferably older than 20.
people from foreign countries like england, france, italy, brazil- etc.
people who like the big cities of the world. tokyo, la, new york, seattle, london, prague, sydney, rio de janeiro etc.
people that can hold an opinion but still be open minded about things in general.<--- people always say this and they really don't mean it- but I DO. in fact? i love the opportunity to discuss serious and non serious subject matter.
people who love all kinds of music and are willing to share what they/who they know of.
people who truly care about those in need. need of anything- even if it's just a shoulder or an honest ear.
anyone can follow/friend me on twitter if you like (^-^) @violetteazura
P.S. unfortunately i have to add this- please no lewd comments or messages. you'd think just head shots would help me avoid this problem- and it does for the most part- but apparently and most ridiculously, merely being a woman rates not completely. also, weirdly enough, other women seem to be the worst in this area. i'm pretty sure i don't like how ill that bodes for the general populace. Also- the reason i don't post photo's of friends and locations is mostly for that of safety ... Aaaaaand i don't like upsetting people- or hearing a whiny whhhhhhhhhy did you post thaaaat one-uh? SO- Anyhoo- indeed i do possess a body- i am not a floating-superman-powers that be-head... lol. the reason for face shots? mostly because i know that in cyberspace most would still like to know who it is they are talking to...
