    Just wanted to drop by and say hello! I hope you're having a marvelous February, I've been thinking of you lately! You are such a kind soul and I miss our lengthy conversations!

    I shall see you in the clubhouse.

    Your dearest friend,

    Hi, dear! So lovely to correspond with you once again. It's been so long!

    I had a lovely Halloween, I went to a few parties and had a blast. How was your Halloween? Did you enjoy the play? I must admit I'm not very interested with theatre, but Dracula is such an interesting character, I bet the show was marvelous!

    I've always wanted to take a DNA test, of course I most likely will once I'm older. Did you receive your results yet?

    Anyways, have a happy Remembrance/Veterans day!

    Christmas will be upon us shortly and I can't wait!

    Take care, hun! Chat with you soon!

    - your dear friend, Lina

    Hey girl! Thanks for the happy birthday wishes. With some love from my beautiful friend Lina the month of September was complete!

    I am doing good. Looking forward to the holiday season. Any Halloween plans tomorrow? I am headed out to watch a stage play of Dracula. I'll be watching with my witch hat on.

    I'll give you the run down of all the interesting cultural history I stumbled upon after my DNA test if you feel like hearing a story. If you want me to I'll send it in a private message or on Discord. I think I friended you? I hope so!
    I would totally recommend testing if you are interested. An autosomal DNA test like I did is really reasonable with rates between 50-100 dollars and covers both sides of your family. I took mine for 70. A mitochondrial DNA test is more expensive and only traces the female line, but it is even more specific. And at the end of the day you can't put a price on your roots :)

    I do love to see you on PC hun. Don't be afraid to come on down here whenever you feel like. Always room for your bright presence here!

    Hope to talk to you again soon,
    Xoxo

    Happy late birthday, my dear! It's been ages since I last chatted with you and I hope you are splendid!

    Also, I'm excited that you were able to learn a bit about your heritage and your family history! It's fascinating to learn where your ancestors came from, isn't it? I'd love to take a DNA test and discover more than I already know!

    Anyways, I hope all is well for you and I should come on PC more frequently. Can't wait to hear back from you! Take care, hun!

    Hey girl! Now that July has come the suspense is killing me! How did your projects go? I have a feeling you nailed your finals just because I know that sharp mind of yours. Still my friend, it is time I check in with you. I have stayed away far too long/hugs/

    Shawn/Dragon has sent me photos of beautiful Ontario.I look forward to Canada's museums, national parks, fine cuisine and more! There are so many possibilities, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec.

    By the way I'm still green with envy over that selfie of yours. You mentioned you had Russian ancestry, and I think I can see it in your strong features. Annie pointed out that you could look like Lauren Graham. Who I thought of was Megan Fox when I saw you. What do you think?
    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.allure.com/gallery/megan-fox-makeup-lessons/amp

    Speaking of heritage I also had some interesting discoveries from the ancestry DNA kit I purchased. I will tell you about my family migration on discord. I sure learned a lot. I also found a lot of great black and white family photos and was able to trace my mother's tree back to the 1700s using Ancestry's record, I could go back even further... but alas it would cost me extra, and I gotta save right now. But it has been really fun taking a walk through history, learning sides of my family I did not know I had.

    Thank you so much for your kind words about Olivia! She is blushing right now to hear your compliment as she is a modest Renaissance maiden!

    I noticed that you like Sebastian from Black Butler. I have an outstanding Taeyang Sebastian doll. Taeyang is the male counterpart to Pullip like Ken and Barbie. He's the Kuromuksuji: Book of Circus Sebastian. I also have a doll of Ciel wearing his phantomhive dress. It is a beautiful reconstruction. These guys have been in my doll collection for a couple of years, but this week I got my paws on a new doll I found on sale from a convention, a stunning Taeyang of Grell. I was lucky to run into that convention sample doll because Grell has been sold out for years. Since Grell was unboxed on display he was cheap. Would you like to see a group photo of the three?

    For the first couple of years I was here I didn't venture much into Deep Discussion (which is now serious prefix OT) because I liked keeping discussions light-hearted and fun, mostly Pokemon-related. I saw PC as a refuge from the world and life's stresses, and I still do in ways. But when I was unexpectedly modded last autumn it became more important to me to get to know other sides of the forum and get into discussions that might be intetesting.

    There are some issues that I am definitely passionate about like our environment. I try to keep things civil, and stay fact-driven, but sometimes things can come across as more aggressive than the spirit of a robust debate I strive for. So I am glad if it seemed firm but level-headed for the most part because that is what I hope to be. I'll wear the mystical ninth tail seal of approval as my badge of honor :P

    Hope you are having a splendid weekend! Stay gorgeous, brilliant, talented and cool. <3

    Hey, lovely! So nice to hear from you after such an extended period of time!

    I actually haven't had my finals yet but they're coming up at the end of June along with my graduation! I'm hoping that I do indeed ace them! Some of my finals are just projects, which I am relieved about. My biology exam is the only one in which I truly need to thoroughly prepare for. Wish me the best of luck!

    And I can't wait to hear all about your travel plans as winter approaches! I'm sure you'll have the most splendid time overseas! AND YES!! Do come to Canada, our country is vast and there's many beautiful sights to see!

    Olivia is a gorgeous doll, I love that dress and her jewelry is stunning! Also I like her more natural look. The lip colour pairs fantastically with her rich skin tone! Very well done! You are such a creative soul, it's astonishing.

    Also, I'd love to hear all about your books so feel free to share if you desire to do so! I've read so many amazing books since my last post in my club and I've been dying to share them! My dear, let's hope that our clubs have the revival that they so desperately need!

    (Also, I love the way you debated in regards to your "million species threatened with Extinction" forum. You handle yourself with such class while preventing the solid, cold facts. Your posts are always so mesmerizing to read!)

    Anyways, take care Sam! I hope to hear from you again soon!

    Hey there girl,

    Its been awhile. I'm finally getting my act together, this response is a million years overdue!

    How have your classes gone? When last we spoke you were juggling midterms, but I imagine now you have taken your finals, which I have feeling you aced! :)

    I'm super excited about traveling to many wonderful faraway lands if I do say so myself. I'll be taking a journey to Cuba, Bahamas and Jamaica this winter. In fall I want to spend some time in Canada because that is where my bf lives! <3

    I need to do some thread revival too. My doll club needs some cpr, especially since I am the mod of that part of the forum, I don't have any excuse! Speaking of dolls, I finally finished Olivia. I played it a conservative with this doll's appearance, and might add a little more blush or lip color in the future. I wanted her to have natural look without much makeup, but it almost doesn't read on the camera at all, especially after I put the sealant on her face, but she actually does have subtle rose cheeks and a sorta beige lip up close.

    Spoiler:





    She's not perfect, but I still had a lot of fun making her. I like the big dark, doey innocent eyes and am happy with the color scheme of the dress and wig. I like the faux pears strewn throughout her hair too and crystals I stuck on her face.

    I might buy Olivia a little toy lute to make her look even more Renaissance.

    By the way, my Neil Gaiman books just arrived in the mail, so hopefully I will have something new and fun to share with the book club soon! You have a wonderful club Lina, remember that my friend :)

    Lots of love

    Oh thank you, darling! You flatter me. Spring has been such a busy time for me so far so I'm sorry for my late reply. Midterms were quite something. Now your trip sounds lovely! I'm so excited for you, dear!

    I really aught to contribute to the History club because there's so many things that I could talk about. Also, you are welcome to discuss a novel in my book club, or multiple novels if you wish! I've been meaning to revive it as it's been dead for quite some time now. I haven't sat down and read a book of my choosing in over a month and I really need to! I just cannot decide which book I want to drive into, as I've amassed quite the collection! I'm a very indecisive person, I'm not exactly known for making swift decisions!

    Anyways, you've been very active on PC as of late and I enjoy all of your posts! I hope you have a splendorous weekend, Sam!

    Lovely Lina!

    How are you dear?

    I hope all is well.

    Valentine's Day is a wonderful holiday. I spoiled my sweetie with macaroons! I also have been watching romantic movies and miniseries of late. I just can't seem to get out of the V-day spirit. Each day is Valentine's Day. It might be time for me to visit the book club with a romantic novel under my arm. I don't know whether or not to start with some Jane Austen perhaps or a work by the Bronte sisters. Maybe something newer? I just really enjoyed the 1965 movie Doctor Zhivago, and think it might be time for me to visit the Pasternak book.


    Oh wow! Lina's talents are boundless, you can even give a makeup tutorial and do a fine makeover. Awww. I can see why your mum is so pleased.

    We have gotten our itineraries ready for Tanzania. I am looking forward to visiting the Arusha cultural heritage center where there is art from all over Africa, and the Shanga village down the street, an artisan place where they help people with disabilities, you see them making glass there and other crafts. I also want to go to Lake Manyara and see the flamingos. As an environmentalist I am really glad that the Magombera Nature Reserve has come under protection, and if possible I would like to see it, new species of wildlife have been discovered there!

    We will spend a week in England and France before hand. I want to see The Phantom of the Opera on West End, and maybe then go to the real Paris Opera House in France, I would love to hear Bryn Terfel in Boris Gudonov. I like that opera, and love his rich, lyric bass-baritone. I have ambitions of doing far too many things at once, but I will at the very least view the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. I hope to catch a train to Versailles palace.

    You know how Shawn and I feel about Japan!!! I think many of us here in our PC family admire the Land of the Rising Sun. The idea of choosing beween Thailand and Italy is a hair-splitting one. Oh gosh, how can you choose? Thai and Italian food are both so good, and then you have the two different but equally stunning architecture styles that feel like a walk through history. I would kill to see theater in Thailand, the dancing, the splendor of the masks, but in Italy I would enjoy the museums. Maybe I would give the edge to Italy for a gondola ride since I love the water, but ask me tomorrow, and I may make a different choice!

    We will have to talk much about Rome! The Caesars were fascinating, were they not? We need your voice in TheGhostHunter's history club.

    Oh thank you so much for your kind words Lina about my Shawn and I! he is a blessing to me, and I give thanks every day that such a kind, wise, handsome and hard-working man was sent to me. I'm a lucky lady!

    I definitely have my quirks, but I am glad to know that my good intentions are visible. I hope you are happy too Lina, you are so beautiful outside and inside, you are strong, fun and have a brilliant mind. I think you have it all if you don't mind my saying so!

    Cheers! Have a sublime weekend my friend!

    Lovely to hear from you again! I hope you had a splendid Valentine's day, I know I certainly did. As a hopeless romantic, I always enjoy the day, single or otherwise. ^-^

    Anyways, my mom loved the eyeshadow palette that I got her. She's used it nearly every day! I've given her quite a few tutorials on how to do a plethora of different looks, everything from a peach cut-crease to a classic sultry smokey eye!

    Also, I love how you are as fascinated with your ancestry as I am! I hope your trip to Africa is marvelous. I'd love for you to tell me all about it once you return! :) I haven't been able to do a lot of travelling in my eighteen years but I am ecstatic for my trip to Japan! Afterwards, I'd love to visit either Thailand or Italy, although I can't decide which place I'd like to go to more. On one hand, I've never journeyed to a place with a tropical climate and that's something I'd love to do! Besides, the architecture in Thailand is stunning. On the other hand, Italy is full of culture, delicious food, and so much history! I've always been enamored by the ancient Romans. I'd also love to visit the Vatican. I suppose I'll have to do some saving up and then I'll see where I'm at.

    I also saw that you posted a picture of your partner and may I say that he's very handsome indeed. You two make a lovely pair! I truly hope that you're happy, hun. You have a big heart and you deserve it.

    Anyways, I hope you have a lovely weekend.

    My carriage drawn by a team Slowpoke has finally arrived so that I can delivery a reply teehee! I’m getting back into the rhythm of pokecommunity at last after a technological failure that held me back. I’m happy to return. Things are looking pretty around your profile as usual.

    How are you Lina? I hope your Christmas holidays were amazing my friend! Also wishing you an extraordinary new year!

    I'll throw some spoilers tags on this just because my message ended up much bigger than I expected it to, and I don't want to gobble up your whole profile. Enter if you dare!

    Spoiler:

    There are indeed a lot of good adaptations of a Christmas Carol. I love pretty much every version I have seen too. Picking a favorite Christmas Carol is darn near impossible, most of them are 5 star classics. I’m tempted to pick the Muppets Christmas Carol because it makes me laugh so, and Michael Caine is just as great of an Ebeneezer Scrooge as any.

    Choosing a Christmas Carol is very hard though because there are different elements I like from each version, and always enjoy the messages of goodwill and justice in the writing of Dickens that permeates through every adapton

    You had an excellent Christmas movie list! How did I remember to watch Frosty the Snowman, but forget to also see Rudolph? T_T
    The adorable gif is cheering me up though. And at least I didn’t forget The Peanuts this time! I recently received the honor of being called Linus. That might be a little generous for me, I thought that I was more of a Lucy, but I’ll take the compliment.

    I also enjoyed watching video several ballets during the Christmas holidays. The Nutctacker with its enchanted giant Christmas tree is one that we see performed often in my family. There is a local production every year in my hometown, and my mom likes to cart everyone off to the show. It is I think somewhat nostalgic for her as dancing was yet another one of her talents, and she was a sugar plum fairy in her day. We also collect lots of dvds of nutcracker ballets Bolshoi, Dresden, the American Ballet company and more. My favorite Nutcracker prince I think is from the Bolshoi 1978 Vladmir Vassiliev. My favorite Clara is Alina Somova from 2013 Marinsky.

    I was glad they used Misty Copeland in the Nuctacker movie. I found myself a new favorite dancer in Misty after I just recently saw a video from La Scala of her dancing Romeo and Juliet.

    The peach pallette sounds lovely! I bet your mom loved it. My mom is a bit of a sticky fingers too. Fortunately my cosmetics are safe because we have different complexions and don’t generally wear the same colors. But she is very nosy about my essential oils. I try to hide my bottles, but the peppermint, clove and lavender have all mysteriously disappeared. I shall have to investigate.

    She definitely loves the herb garden!! I'm not loving it so much though because that ultra violet light is a lot more annoying than I thought it would be. She keeps it in the kitchen, displaying it with pride, and the whole home ends up looking like a lighthouse even when every other light is turned off.*hiss* I feel like a vampire perishing under extreme sunlight!!

    I hope that you get to the United Kingdom too Lina. A journey back to where your ancestors came from.

    My toes have tapped to a Celtic tune more than once. On last Saint Patrick’s day I was lucky enough to be invited to this wonderful concert of traveling Celtic tenors. All of them had the voices of angels.

    My, what an interesting background you have! French, Celtic, Russian. No wonder you are so artistically-inclined. You might have an impressionist painter, dance impresario or pioneer of fashion somewhere in your family tree. As Hellen Keller once said, “There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his.”

    History and world culture is fascinating to me, and I have decided to perform an ancestry dna test to find out more about my own heritage. I’ve been a little reluctant because they’re awfully pricey, and it still is only a little piece of the puzzle because such tests can only show you about the last 6 generations of your ancestry unbroken I believe. Still, I will happily take any new information I can get when I have some spare change. It is all part of your past.

    My mother spent some time looking through the archives at genealogy.com and had some success tracing her European heritage, which she says is U.K and French. She told me her father’s last name Wharton is an anglization of the French Quarton/ Charonton. I have no idea about the etymology so you would probably know better than I with your French-speaking skills.

    My mother passes down a lot of colorful family lore, and says that we have some Native American ancestry too on her mother’s side. I have no idea whether this is true or just a legend, but her mother’s mother was said to be half Cherokee Indian. We don’t have documents to verify any Native American ancestors, though it is an interesting possibility. Who knows? America is a melting pot of so many different cultures.

    Since we are traveling through many different countries in Africa this summer, Madagascar, Kenya, Tanzania, I wish to find out where my father’s ancestors came from before we go on vacation, and maybe visit that country. We are likely to have West African roots on my dad’s side because it was mostly people from the west coast who were brought to the United States through the transatlantic slave trade. But where were our forefathers from Mali? Ghana? Togo? I’d love to know.

    If you travel to Japan you must tell me about your adventures there! Take photos, and live the good life for me.

    Buddhism is indeed fascinating. I was also raised Christian, yet I have always enjoyed learning about lots of different religions ever since the 6th grade when I first got to study Greek mythology. :)

    Some people view Buddhism as a philosophy rather than a religion at its core level. Since Buddhism does not have personal deities, I can see why it could be studied as a philosophy. It is at least not an ideology in the way that one might expect. For Buddhists the Buddha is not someone you worship. It is not the same as Christians would worship Jesus. This was one of the key distinctions for me as a western outsider looking in, contrasting Buddhism with other Eastern religions like Shintoism or Hinduism that have a polytheist belief system.

    Buddhism is not denying the existence of a God above us either, it is just not about explaining the origins of the universe. It is neutral. What Buddhism is about is letting go of the ego, and freedom from suffering. Buddhists believe anyone can be a Buddha, and the practices that we typically associate with Buddhism such as charity, meditation, simple diet and lifestyle are techniques for disconnecting from our current material world to find enlightenment, or that “serenity” you referred to so accurately.

    I think attaining such a level peace of mind is something we can all respect and let into our own lives to live more constructively and help others as well as our selves, whether we do it as Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Muslims or by another name, and think I that this is fundamentally what we all do seek ultimately.

    I’m the one that is rambling now I guess, but my conversations with you always lead to such interesting places that you’ll have to forgive me if I also get overly-excited ^_^

    I’m sending many blessings your way, and hope that you are having a wonderful weekend.

    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!
