Writer's Block: 9/11
Where were you?

(Translated from Spanish (from www.univision.com's message board))
On September 11th, at 10:05 am, I went running out of the Spanish House at Hood College because I was late for a class (which started at 9:55!) and I hadn’t even taken two steps when one of my house-mates came running from a class. Upon leaving the house, I had noticed that someone had left the television on and with the volume very high, so I asked my house-mate if she had been the one who had turned the television on (I thought maybe she had turned it on to see a show but at that minute had realized that it was time for her to go to class and she had forgotten to turn it off before leaving). Well, when I asked her, she said “No, but I’m about to watch it because a plane crashed into the World Trade Center.” As I was already late for my class, I didn’t really pay attention to what she was saying (although I was a little concerned by what she had said, I thought it was probably just an accident) and went running to class. Well, after class, I asked the professor if she knew what had happened, and she told me everything; immediately, I went back to the house and turned on the TV in my room, and that’s how I knew what had happened. Because of what happened, there were no more classes that day (I wish they had cancelled the class that I arrived late to, because then I would not have been late), but by the next day everything was back to normal…well, at least in reference to classes.

Writer's Block: Something to cry about
How do you feel about corporeal punishment?

Me: only for really dangerous situations (such as running into the street) or as a last resort when nothing else will work, and a few smacks with an open hand on the seat of the pants (not a bare butt) should suffice (well that's what I usually got).

Russia (ivan_x_toris): I do enjoy beating up on my Baltics, but I do not know if I would call it "corporal punishment." More like "enforcing my previous verbal commands when they are not responded to adequately." I also tend to do it when having sex with them. However, I would never hit or hurt a woman in any way, unless she wanted me to (i.e. if she was into that kind of sexual play).

(this Russia is nicer than other Russias and is against any kind of non-con violence against women (meaning that consentual rough sexual play is ok but nothing else), but he does have his evil side as well kolkolkolkolkolkolkolkol (-J-) and is generally creepy to everybody)

Writer's Block: It Sounds Better When You Say It
No matter what language you speak, you've probably come across words or phrases in another language that sound better than their equivalents in your native tongue. What's your favorite word or phrase in a foreign language?

Favorite word(name) to call someone: LOCO!!!!!!!!!!! and the equivalent in several other languages (such as pagal in Hindi, дурак(durak) in Russian, meshuga in Hebrew, etc.) ;)

Favorite word to say: shalosh, Hebrew for 3 (from the fact that I've noticed that Israelis seem to get very excited about that number :))

and I don't just say "shalosh", I say "shshshshshshshshshshshshaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllloOoOOoOoOOoOooOoOOoOoOOoOoOoshshshshshshshshshshshshshshshshshsh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

and I like Hebrew numbers in general

Writer's Block: AIDS Awareness
It's the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day today. From clean needles to safe sex, the fight against AIDS has touched everyone's life. How has it affected yours?

From October of 2006 to June of this year, I worked as a secretary and Spanish-language interpreter for the HIV/AIDS program at my local health department. Part of my job as a secretary was assembling various general mailings concerning World AIDS day and other events geared towards AIDS awareness. So I guess HIV/AIDS has affected me in that way, since I don't have it and don't know anybody outside of the clients at the health department who does have it.

Writer's Block: We met on LJ
Who did you meet on LiveJournal you wouldn't have met otherwise?
Probably my best friend Sara, because she lives in California and I live in Maryland. Although, who knows :)
