*headdesk of EPIC proportions*  
Oh, God. Oh, God. I'm sorry. I know I swore not to talk politics ever again, but I need to share my frustration.



"I'll try to ease the relations between Russia and USA from the point they reached now, two countries where younger generations are now ruling; and I can't see much difficulty for Medvedev at establishing a good relation with Obama, who is also handsome, young and tanned."

*HEADDESK* *HEADDESK* *HEADDESK*

I can't begin to imagine how can anyone find this even remotely funny. Though I was expecting it yesterday and not today.

In better news:


14516 / 50000 words. 29% done!

See, being sick is useful at something. And God, I'm not even at a quarter of what I want to do in that story.

Woo hoo on the word count. At this rate you will hit 100,000.

Tanned? Nice. Wisdom for the ages. When are you moving to Canada or anywhere else?

LOL, I've got an idea that I will. At least because... mmh, well, I've got seventeen parts planned and I've finished three. Or four, if you count the prologue. But I'm just having so much fun with it!

Yeah. TANNED. I think as soon as I get my degree. Or even half of it and then seriously see if I can do the second part outside this country. I just... I mean, he's always that way and this should hardly be news, but I figured he'll always managed to make me feel ashamed for him. And he really believes he's funny. *sigh*

I know. I've just read about it. And the journalist called it "irony".... Sorry, irony is something else entirely!

also, I'm not an expert in multicultural relationship, but I suspect that not only it was NOT funny, but also slightly offensive.

*headdesk*

That looks faaar from irony *sigh* and yeah, the first thing I thought was that it was kind of offensive, too. *headdesk with you again*

Oh dear God...who is it that said this?

Congratz on your word count. I'm rubbish with word watching.

My beloved prime minister Silvio Berlusconi of which I'm so ashamed that I can't even say his name in an official post. I swear I rarely felt so ashamed of having him there. If you want more clarification on the matter and on who we're talking about, the link below sort of says it all.

And thank you!

Oh dear, I'm so sorry.

At least there's a pretty good chance he'll do something so stupid he'll end up killing himself, right? Like a Darwin award thing.

On happier news, congratulations on your writing! I hope you'll feel better soon.

*hugs*

Thank you for the congratulations! *hugs*

And sadly... no. I'm sure that if he knows something is how to preserve his life, since he spent half of an electoral campaign ranting about some cancer that had almost left him for dead *sigh*.But God, sometimes I just wished he won that award for real. *sigh again* ♥

L'ironia è una bellissima cosa. Che deve restare FUORI dalle relazioni diplomatiche internazionali.

Io ironia del genere la accetto da una persona che conosco e che so cosa pensa davvero di me, non da uno sconosciuto di un altro paese che pensa sia figo fare battute sensazionalistiche del cazzo. Soprattutto NON da uno che ricopre una carica istituzionale.

(e poi hai sentito, lui gli ha detto 'una grande carineria'. Pena.)

ECCO, ESATTAMENTE.

FIRMO E STRAFIRMO. Giuro, mi vergogno così tanto che... bah. Non che non me lo aspettassi prima o poi, lo so com'è fatto, ma... e sì, ho sentito. Cristo, carineria. Contento lui. Se appena lo incontra gli canta faccetta nera davanti sicuro sarà una carineria.. *sigh*

Wow. That's almost unbelievable.

On a less serious note, your icon wins at life. Emerson is love!
the female ghost of tom joad: confusedjanie_tangerine on November 6th, 2008 08:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Emerson is awesome!

Oh, I'm not even surprised. He once said he had seduced the Finnish PM causing a diplomatic accident, he says he tripped over a wire in order to hug George Bush because he loves him too much and he gifted Bush with a copy of a CD by a Neapolitan songwriter with whom he co-wrote the songs. With a translation of a song that basically says thank God that he's around to solve things (our PM, I mean). I expected him to shoot some idiocy in a small while. But that was so stupid and inconsiderate, I just feel ashamed.

Thank you!!! ♥

Yeah. He's a moron. A MORON. Oh, and he also said that anyone thinking it was a racy remark can write to him at the Parliament and get a degree stating that said anyone is a dick (literal word) since only a dick could think it wasn't a compliment. Well, I have a degree with absolutely no effort now ;)
