Happy Birthday, too_beauty!

My dear friend - Happy Birthday! I wish you all the wonderful things this planet has to boast - health, happiness, joy; sunshine and laughter, love of family and friends, good mood and wonderful discoveries, inspirations for your wonderful stories and enough free time to write them. And of course enjoy stories of your friends and I, as one of them, have something ready for you, tomorrow - just to extend the celebration for one more day. :)

¡Feliz cumpleaños!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Yes, yes, I know I am somewhat early but because I am moving to a new apartment this Friday, and the buildng I am moving in is brand new and builder, as it customary for most builders, was behind the schedule, I won't have phone, internet or TV till January15th of 2015. I am hugely upset and angry and there is nothing I can do.

So, this is the reason for my early message. I wish all my friends wonderful holidays!

Mutiny at Opis (birthday story for too_beauty)

One day I received a notification from FFnet that some new reader followed my story "Present for Alexander". It was a nice surprise since the story is more than one year old and I never planned a follow up. In that story I made Zeus and Hera gift Alexander with GPS for his birthday. Remembering this story with a wicked smile on my face I wondered what other marvels of modern technology Alexander and his Army would enjoy and which of the social media tools would be their favorite? After I played with several options, I came to the conclusion that though all of them would be popular, one in particular will be an undisputed front runner. Though today is not Alexander's birthday, it is, however, of my dear friend too_beauty. So, using this event as an excuse, I temporary usurped Zeus' powers and gifted the whole Macedonian Army, their native land and all the countries they conquered with a certain marvelous modern day technology.

The only thing left to do was to choose an appropriate occasion when Alexander & Co could demonstrate to the modern world what they were capable of. As you can guess from the title of this story, the chosen occasion happened to be the mutiny at Opis. It is said that Alexander, fuming at veterans who didn't appreciate his grand gesture of sending them home with magnificent gifts, retired to his tent. Ever wondered how did he spend his free time there?   

If the answer is yes, please read on and enjoy!

to cheer up a dear friend...

Dear selket531, I know life has been harsh towards you recently though the rays of hope started to pierce the darkness. I know you like ballet and Baryshnikov is one of your favorite dancers. I recently came across this post, I hope you'll enjoy watching it; I only wish you could understand the words of song, it makes the dance even more meaningful. http://www.adme.ru/video/potryasayuschee-sochetanie-697410/

The words and music written by the very famous Russian bard singer, Vladimir Wysotsky (d. 1980), during his lifetime he always performed his own songs, his deep, smoke laced voice is easily recognizable. I found translation of this song into English on the net:
Wayward horses

thank you very much for birthday wishes!

Dear friends - thank you very much for all your birthday wishes and really sorry for being so late in saying so. I had to work 11 hours on my birthday and taking into accounts it takes me about an hour to get to work, so total of 13. Yesterday was almost the same and today I am still at work, so also looking at 10+ hours. Luckily, tomorrow, it should be back to normal, so I hope to respond individually to each of you by weekend.

thank you very much again!

Golden Globe

So, incredible happened - Jared won his nomination! Incredible not because he doesn't deserve it (he does! he does!) but because so often actors who truly deserve it don't win it. But you think this is the only one incredible thing that happened? No............  :) As much as Jared winning was incredible, other amazing thing happened.... after Jared was done with his speech, the camera, after wandering through other nomenees faces, rested on...Colin Farrell. What the camera operator was thinking?! ......
