    I am well, thank you! Lovely to hear from you so close to Christmas!

    A Christmas Carol is a magnificent story. Admittedly, I am not overly fond of plays, however, that is one that I would love to see! Over the years I have viewed a plethora of different film adaptations on the classic tale and I've enjoyed each and every single one. This year in my AP English class we had the opportunity to study the Christmas Carol and focus on the literary devices used in the writing. It was intriguing.

    So far this Christmas season I have watched The Family Stone (as previously mentioned), Home Alone, Home Alone 2, The Holiday, and Love Actually. All incredible movies, although I plan to watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and a few other Christmas favourites of mine.



    Thank you! The last two months have been busy for me but now that I'm on Christmas break I plan to devote more time to resting. I do have some thrilling news! I was recently accepted in University the other day. A wonderful Christmas gift for me! I am so blessed.

    I'm sure your father will appreciate your thoughtful present! I mean, who doesn't love gingerbread? It's divine!

    I decided to go with the Two-Faced Peach Palette for my mother! i'm hoping she'll enjoy it and hopefully she won't have to steal all of my palettes. Anyways, the gift for your mother sounds wonderful. I have a love for gardening as well, and if she adores plants as much as I do, I'm confident that she'll love your gift!

    I'm sure Spain was beautiful! I also plan on visiting the United Kingdom someday. I do have a bit of Anglo-Saxon, and Celtic ancestry, so I'd be interesting to see a land once inhabited by my ancestors. (Of course, like many of my fair skinned friends, I am a mixture of European ancestries. I'm French, Russian, and everything in-between!) Once I graduate I plan on travelling to Japan for a few weeks. I am unaware if I've mentioned this to you before. I look forward to walking the bright, busy streets of Tokyo, but I also yearn to Visit a Buddhist monastery. Despite my Christian faith, I've always admire the peaceful, demure nature that Buddhism seems to embody. Afterward, I would love to journey to France and Italy. (I've been reading way to many novels that romanticize Paris!) I can speak French relatively well, so it would be a bit easier to visit the country as opposed to going somewhere where I cannot speak or interpret the native language. I do apologize for my rambling, oh my! The prospect of travelling does excite me a tad much I suppose!

    I missed chatting with you my friend. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

    -Your dear friend, Lina.

    Dearest,

    How are you? The Christmas hour draws closer!

    I'm beginning that winter club so if you wish to share any of your decorations our doors will be open to you in Clubhouses. We just got our tree yesterday, and ore burning copal and frankincense and myrhh.

    Sitting by the tree reading sounds sublime. I went with my aunt and uncle recently to a musical staging of Christmas Carol in our community, and I was impressed by how much of the dialogue from the book was incoporated. It has gotten me in the mood to read a Christmas Carol again. It is wonderful! I love Charles Dickens. i have read A Tale of Two Cities too, and need to get started on many more.

    I have not seen The Family Stone, but it looks heartwarming. I really enjoyed seeing Disney's Nutcracker in theaters. This weekend I will be watching the Chronicles of Narnia of Movies. It isn't aired too often during the Holidays, even though C.S Lewis wrote it as a Christian allegory, and the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe even has Santa Claus in it. My favorite entry in the film series is Prince Caspian.

    You juggle a whole lot girl, between high school, volunteering, work and maybe even preparing for college. Its almost like there are two of you. Are you sure that you are not using a time-turner to do it all like Hermione Granger in Harry Potter? :)

    That gingerbread scented candle sounds exciting! I would like to buy a little gingerbread house to assemble for Christmas. I baked my last batch of gingerbread cookies for my dad. My parents are divorced I may have mentioned. My dad usually likes to travel to warm climates during Christmas because the cold doesn't agree with him. He'll pick places like Jamaica or Cuba, as tropical as he can get. Right now he is at the beach. So I baked him tins full of gingerbread to take with him because it is his favorite. He did invite me to go with him, but I dunno. I guess I'm more of a homebody and would rather stay surrounded by friends here, at least on the holiday. My dad is traveling to Kilimanjaro this summer, and I'm coming with him. I bought him for Christmas a replica of a west African sword I ordered from Novica as a reminder of our travels.

    Perfume is also a great gift! I would love some! I never give it as gift though because I am a bit of a hedonist and want to greedily keep it for myself. I keep an apothecary of essential oils on hand, lavender, rose, pine, lemon, jasmine, clove, ginger, peppermint.

    Hopefully Michelle's memoirs are a nice read for your family. I usually don't go heavily into politics, but I feel compelled to say that the Obamas were a very nice face for America, it was a little like having the Kennedy family again, beautiful, charismatic, intelligent, friendly. As a progressive there are some things I wish Obama had done differently, like passing a public option at least through reconciliation. I believe healthcare is a human right no matter how poor you may he. I also wish he had named Hillary to the supreme court instead of secretary of state. I think she was too much of war hawk for that position. That being said, I would still like to go back to the Obama years. I think the Paris Climate agreement was a step in the right direction for environmental. I think Obama was good on many social issues as well and hope that a Candidate closer to him will emerge in 2020 in the US.

    As for cosmetic shopping, I'd love to know what eye shadow pallet you picked out. I may have mentioned this before, but I was in uniformed schools since elementary, so now that I am free to be who I want I just love makeup and clothes and a chance to express myself through visuals in a way that I wasn't always allowed to.

    What I bought for my mom for Christmas was a uv light indoor planter to grow herbs in. She loves to garden, and has had her eyes on this same model for awhile. It has a copper finish, and she loves that look for her kitchen.

    Yes, my mom was something of an idol for me in my youngest years. Such a beautiful and talented lady, generous and a lot of fun, spoils me rotten.That doesn't mean we never disagree on things. Sometimes money issues become a problem, and we have some political differences, her views are evolving more conservatively, which I hear is not usually as we age. But I love to hang out with her, we talk everyday. She's told me a lot of interesting stories about her life and many travels and adventures and colorful people she has met. We can always talk about a movie together or anything. She was really helpful to me this fall when I was going through some issues with an ex-boyfriend, opening up about her own life. She helped me get out of a situation that I now understand as I study psychology was quite dangerous.

    I haven't traveled to Italy yet, but I did volunteer abroad in Spain. I loved the Reina Sofia musuem, and the food and the metro systems. If only the states would get on board with efficient mass transportation. It can be a problem outside of New York and D.C.

    One place I really would like to go is the U.K. my dad's been there before, and he decided that so the flight to Africa isn't too long we are going to stop over in Europe, just chill ij London for a few days, hop a bullet train to France, and from there on cross the Mediterranean and go to Africa.

    I'm curious about the United Kingdom for the rich Celtic music. I also want to see Shakespeare performed at the Globe Theater. My dad also sayshehad a lot of fun in Ireland.

    There are many places I want to go though. I am really interested in visiting Japan. And my new boyfriend shares an avid love of travel with me, and we have talked about possibly even going there together some day. I want to see Noh plays, sit in a tea house, partake in festivals, visit Shinto shrines, maybe sup with the legendary chef Jiro.

    This message was the "future sight" of emails it was delayed awhile, and when it finally came it was enormous base power...by that I mean really long. Sorry for talking your ear off Ninetales, but I missed you and had quite a bit of catching up to do to answer your different vms all in one jumbo-size message. If you need time to recharge and respond feel free.

    I hope you had a really awesome birthday!

    Hi Lina! I know your b-day was the 9th. But I never got the chance to give you a big hug with the site being down. What I can do is offer you a birthday coupon for my breeding services. I specialize in hidden ability Pokemon so if you need say a snow warning or drought Vulpix or perhaps a different pokemon you fancy, just know that you will be welcomed as a very special guest. The ivs are always good from me. My doors are always open to you lovely Lina! I'll answer my overdue pms too. Maybe I'll combine them into one foot-long subway sandwich of an email.

    Hunny, I tend to have the same issue, so I completely understand. I procrastinate responding to my messages but I am trying to devote time to answering them.

    That sounds marvelous! As you most likely already know from my forum, we put up our Christmas tree and decorated the entirety of our house nearly a month ago! It's so lovely to sit by the Christmas tree and read a novel with the twinkling lights in the background. Last night, my mother and I watched our favourite Christmas movie, The Family Stone! It is comedic at times but it truly is a touching movie that certainly brings a sense of joy and melancholy at the same time. It is the perfect movie for this time of year.

    Admittedly, I have only gone shopping for my mother and sister so far. Unfortunately, I was scheduled to work Black Friday and I only had a minimal amount of time to shop before I started my shift. I picked up perfume and a gingerbread scented candle for my mother and I got my mother Michelle Obama's memoir, Becoming. I still have some shopping to do for friends and such. I want to get my mother an eyeshadow palette , I just can't decide on which one. But yes, do tell me what gifts you've purchased for your loved ones, I'd be delighted to hear.

    My birthday is December 9th, so exactly a week from today. I'll be considered an adult, which is slightly unnerving, but I am ecstatic nonetheless.

    Also, thanks! I am always changing my profile, I can never stick with the same design for too long. I decided to hold off on the Christmas theme until the 1st of December which was immensely difficult. Honestly, you can expect my profile to retain its holiday theme until well after New Years.

    I look forward to hearing back from you, Sam! Take care.

    Your friend, Lina.

    Lina!!

    It sure is the start of a wonderful time of year! Bless you!

    Its been awhile since I've replied. I've let me profile messages and inbox turn into a sort of overgrown garden. I am sorry, it seems whenever you pay me a visit things have been disorganized. But I am so very excited too.

    I've got the Christmas spirit. At home we are lighting candles daily, serving punch and hot cider, and I learned how to make gingerbread. Mother has fresh frankincense and myrhh burning. There's peppermint candy all about, the winter plants have come into bloom now and I'll buy a cinnamon broom soon. In good time we will drag our the reindeer on the lawn and the lights. I saw the Nutcracker movie on Black Friday, which I liked a lot. Also on Christmas Eve my whole family is getting together to see a play of A Christmas Carol in the community, and then have dinner. I will be seeing aunts, uncles cousins. I'm just getting started. There's a bunch of goodies I haven't even mentioned yet.

    I've not only started my Christmas shopping, I have finished it! Black Friday is where its at if you want to save money! I have everybody's present, I just need to get giftwrapping and cards. Want to gossip about what we've picked out for our loved ones?

    I still owe you a response to an earlier profile message. I'll write it later just so this one doesn't get too long, but I won't forget. Thanks sp much for your message, and spreading some Christmas cheer.

    It is neat finding out that you are a December baby. When is your birthday hun? *wink, hint*

    With love,

    -Sam

    P.S Your profile's looking cute with Christmas colors, and a bright, snazzy new avvie.

    Happy December, Sam! It is the beginning of a wonderful season, one full of joy! Of course, I am a tad bias, being that I am a December baby as well as an avid Christmas lover.

    Have you started Christmas shopping? It's something I need to seriously think about.

    Anyways, I sincerely hope that everything is well with you.

    Yours truly, Lina.

    Thank you so much! Feel free to call me Lina if you want. :)

    Have you mustered the courage to paint your precious Phillip yet? I think acrylic paint would look lovely.

    You do not need to offer any sort of apology for the Halloween club. It was still enjoyable for me personally. Besides, we all have lives offline and we can get busy sometimes, it's ok. I completely understand, I've been terribly occupied myself. Anyway, I think a Christmas/holiday themed club is brilliant! It would certainly be a hit, I'd imagine. Many people, such as myself, take holidays very seriously!

    Your mom sounds so incredibly talented! It's sweet how you idolized her. When I was younger I looked up to my mother too. I saw her immense resilence and grace and was amazed by it. Mothers are phenomenal. And Florence, wow! What a mesmerizing city indeed. I've always dreamed of travelling to Italy and enjoying the culture, the stunining architecture, and the food! Ah, I adore pasta! Have you ever traveled to Italy? Also, where is the one destination that you want to visit?

    I think I may finally know what I want to be in the future, a Nurse researcher! It's a combination of different professions that I enjoy so I think I'd be perfect for me. As long as I keep my grades where they currently sit, I'll be all set.

    My favourite Peanut character is Linus. He's so adorable and endearing, I love his childish demeanor and his tranquil nature.

    Anyways, I apologize again for my belated response. I sincerely hope you're doing well and I look forward to hearing back from you, Sam!!

    Dear MysticalNinetales--I LOVE to say that name by the way,

    I've been stalling for time when it comes to painting Olivia's face, thinking I might switch to acrylic paint or pastel. My confidence waxes and wanes. I could be described in the same terms as Phillip from the Lion in Winter.

    Henry: What kind of courage have you got, boy?
    Phillip: The tidal kind....it comes and goes.

    It's marvelous to hear that you are an Agatha Christie fan! I rode out of town to see a brilliant production of And Then There Were None this October, everyone was really good in their role.

    I should have known that you would be quite the scholar, after all you are the founder of our Book Club. Which reminds me, I really need to get to work fixing up the poetry club.

    Also on the subject of the Halloween Club. I'm so sorry that there has been so much delay with events. I spoke to management, trying to get the bottom of what was going on, and was told that there were technical difficulties, and because she wanted to see more participation and under the circumstances with her own schedule being very tight she had to take a rain check. I am waiting to update the thread until I know for certain what the plan is, but I am in talks with our Fairy friend right now about a possible makeup day with a new event of some kind, so I am very hopeful right now. When it comes to the next Holiday I want to pull out all of the stops.

    You are making me blush with that marvelously detail-oriented comment, but thank you!

    I think we are probably in the same boat as artists. Don't mistake me for Leonardo Da Vinci. I love surrounding myself with art and learning about it, but my hand is a bit heavy too. Now my mom and her sisters, they had the touch. My mum worked as sculptor, painter, photographer, animator and knows some glassmaking techniques. She used to live in Florence, city of the Renaissance masters. She was my role model as a kid.

    I couldn't agree more with you about how riveting it can be to get into the head of what someone thinks and feels through psychology. My favorite part of writing is usually character and I often look at the people and situations that I am reading or writing about as if I were mini counselor. I try to think very hard about how a character would react based on the sum of their experiences. Also psychology is helpful for me to understand myself.

    You are going to be learning and doing something that excites you, and also something that can heal and save lives!

    I haven't watched the Great Pumpkin King in a long time, but I remember it being a nice one. I ought to raid my local library to see if there is a copy I can rent. I love chilling in the cafe, browsing books, eating ginger molasses cookies and finding a DVD.

    Any favorite Peanut characters? Mine is Snoopy.

    Sorry for my late reply! I've been so incredibly bust these last few days that I've barely had an opportunity to sit down! Anyways, I do hope that you weekend has been splendid.

    Have you began painting your precious doll? I hope all goes well. Have faith in yourself. You seem marvelously detail oriented and you should do a fantastic job! I am not much of an artist myself. I tend to have quite the heavy hand while painting. I suppose makeup is the only form of art that I excel at.

    Thank you for the kind word! Psychology is an absolutely an enthralling subject indeed! The human brain is certain among the most complex things in our universe! I think that being able to understand how people think and feel from a biological and psychological perspective is riveting! And, of course, being able to help people establish a healthy state of mind is something that i want to be able to do.

    Yes, the Charlie Brown movie is the one with the infamous Great Pumpkin. Ah, such a classic!

    Agatha Christie is among my favourite authors! Her writing enamors me! She can craft an engrossing thriller novel like no other!

    You can expect me to be a little more active in the Halloween club now that my busy week is coming to a close. :)

    Aren't they the gentlest giants? I see them as kinda like the Dragonites of the real world. I could post a pic of my snowy white pile of fluff here...should I?

    Oh thank you! I definitely feel what I am most at home doing is creating. Whether is shopping for unusual clothing or accessories and putting together an ensemble, making a relaxing playlist to listen to, citting flowers or even cooking can become art. It all requires a little experimentation.

    I am nuts about a certain Korean doll called a Pullip. Though every pullip doll uses the same face plate, the way you paint the face gives each doll a dramatically different look and personality. I'm building my own Pullip doll Olivia who is inspired by an Italian Rennaisance noblewoman. I have collected everything else she needs, a beautiful wig, dress, eyechips, all left for me now is to paint her face. I'm nervous! *gulp* I've been stalling buying my can of sealant because it is an intimidating project.

    What I think I do best though is write. I hope that I will have the determination, discipline and skill to become an author one day.

    I think it is absolutely great that you want to become a psychiatrist or nurse. You are frankly brilliant and I think you would excell being so mature, smart and knowledgeable. You also can help people, which is what you love to do, maybe even save a life. I have always been fascinated by character studies and getting a peek into the psychology of a character.

    At the same time makeup artistry is also a beautiful way to express yourself. It requires its own kind of discipline according to my friend Lil who is a makeup artist. So much detail goes into a work of art. But its so glamorous and exciting too.

    Maybe you will take classes in both, and see how it goes? I don't see why you couldn't be a freelance makeup artist too! You could use the money to help pay for medical school or your own private practice.

    Hooray for Scooby Doo! Now you must tell me about this Peanuts Halloween special, because that sure got my interest! Is this the Great Pumpkin King or is there another that I must check off my list? I like the peanuts too.

    Oh my goodness, your pumpkin vanished? This is such a wonderful mystery. The forever young, dreamy part of me hopes deep down it was transformed into a carriage.

    I feel similarly to you. Gore doesn't amuse me. I like mystery and suspense, things that go bump in the night, ghost stories, Agatha Christie stories, maybe an old Alfred Hitchcock movie. I like the atmosphere or just going all out with imagination, witches, monsters and ghosts. It sounds like your house is just the place I would want to visit.

    It is splendid to have you in the Halloween club now to make mischief with us!

    Great Pyrenees are adorable! My cousin has one named Luca and he is the sweetest, most loving canine ever! Such a stunning breed. Anyways, I do suppose I should join the kennel club.

    A stage makeup class does sound riveting, indeed! You certainly strike me as an individual with immense creativity! I bet your transformations are alluring. Personally, I've always had such a love for makeup and I've even considered becoming a makeup artist in the future. (However, I do plan on either becoming a psychiatric nurse or a clinical psychologist. Perhaps I could be a freelance makeup artist on the side?)

    There isn't anything wrong with doing Halloween activities in the comfort of your own home! I do plan on binging every single Scooby-Doo move that I own as well viewing The Charlie Brown Halloween Special (A favourite of mine!) Eating candy corn, sipping pumpkin spice lattes, munching on Pilsbury pumpkin cookies and indulging in other Halloween delicacies is also something that I look forward to as well. I must admit that I haven't carved a jack-o-lantern in yearsss! Although, last year we had an ordinary, rather bland pumpkin on our front porch. (I might add that last year I had a party at my house a few weeks before Halloween and the following morning I noticed that the pumpkin had vanished. What happened to it remains a mystery. Of course, it can be assumed that it was stolen by a drunken teenager, but perhaps it was looted by an unruly spirit? Who knows.)

    My humble abode is famous for consecutively being the most decorative house on the block. My mother simple adores decor! (She re-decorates the entire house for each season/holiday!) Although we aren't ones to go all out and make our horse appear gory or anything of that nature. I'm not overly enthralled by anything horror-related.

    A dog-lover did you say? Well that is great to know! I don't understand how anyone could not love a dog. They are so smart, friendly and save lives, and beautiful. You have picked a great choice of breed in a husky I might add! They are some of the most handsome and capable dogs around!

    I have a Great Pyrenees at home, and people mistake him for a husky sometimes, but they are wonderful dogs too. They like to look after small things like kids and other pets. I guess I will see you inHo-oh's dog kennel club then? I think a lot of folks feel the same way about playing with dogs and puppiesall day being pretty much heaven. I went to look for another part-time job this one at a dog daycare, and they had 3,000 applications in one week just to walk our furry friends.

    Lemme add you to my friend list right now. Why dd I wait so long to add such a cool, smart lady? Its long overdue!

    Wow, here you are doing all these cool things, and I don't have anything nearly as fun planned. Becoming a butterfly sounds beautiful. I did something a little similar while taking a stage makeup class as an elective. My face was painted teal as part of my blue morpho butterfly look. In that class I became in addition to a butterfly an old lady, a clown, various other animals, a rag doll, the painter Frida Kahlo and the beautiful Chinese-American film actress of the silent era Anna May awong. Now if only I could sew...

    I've gotten soft and lazy this year though. i don't even have a costume, though I do have this old gold Venetian mask in my closet on standby in case of emergency. Unless I get an unexpected invitation to do something cool and different then I'm probably going to chill at home and do family activities this year, carve the jack-o-lantern, string up decorations and make the house look haunted, give out candy,all of us watch movies together with ghosts or witches or monsters and maybe bake some goodies like roasted pumpkin seeds or pumpkin bread., cut up cookies into spooky shapes.

    Its almost here and we can't wait, so ring the bells and celebrate!

    That's hilarious! People can have the most peculiar fears, that's for sure.

    I will admit that I am a dog lover! I have a Husky-Pomeranian cross and she is an energetic, playful sort. Working and playing with dogs and puppies all day would truly be a dream! Oh, I would be simply delighted to have you send a friend request!

    To answer your question, I have a lot of plans for this Halloween season. I'm going to two different parties on the weekend of the 27th. I also intend to go to an event held the same weekend. Essentially, this facility downtown hosts events during and around holiday seasons. It's basically a club that minors can go to. There's a gargantuan dance floor, A dj, strobe lights, it's so much fun! I attended last year dressed in somewhat of a daring angel costume and it was a splendid time indeed. This year I'm thinking of wearing a strapless black dress with a pair of butterfly wings, I'd do my makeup all glam and I'd put some glitter on my face, and I'd have a little antennae headband or something. As for the parties I'm attending, I plan on being a vampire. (I'd pair extra pale foundation with a deep rogue lip and some dark shadow, with blinding highlight of course!) And I'd wear a tattered dress or something along those lines. My friends and I were also discussing doing a group costume and going as the Scooby-Doo gang or being characters from Mean Girls for the other party! Who knows what we'll decide.

    A club dedicated to the discussion of holidays sounds like a fabulous idea to me! I'd gladly join!

    You are never alone, we all have our quirks. My dad is 6 ft 2 , was an athlete in his day, swears like a sailor, a real macho man...and he is scared of cats. I myself once literally jumped at the sight of a mouse. My friend Hyzenthlay loves mice though and has shared so many wonderful stories about how smart and clean and affectionate they can be that I am going to try to be braver. lf you happen to like dogs you might be able to just work with them if you ever get curious about visiting an animal shelter. At the Humane Society in my home town the cats and dogs are separate.

    Working with special needs kids is already a plenty big responsibilty though. I know you are bringing happiness to a lot of lives. You are super nice.aww shucks, you are making me blush as red as a vupix now! I don't even know what to say bit thanks! Would it be okay if I sent you a friend request?

    Got any special Halloween plans like a costume party, or visiting a haunted house, watching scary movies? After all you need to have some fun too! One of the things we are discussing right now in Clubhouses is potentially a new thread to celebrate the holiday season.
    Hope to talk to you again soon!
