pic :: Siberian "Ushanka" hat !!!


Not all is lost in Provo, there is still light in the end of the tunnel. Guess what I found in one of the stores. Yes, a Russian style "Ushanka" hat. Of course it's not as nice but still...

Now, I can call myself a real Russian.

What, was there not enough Russian in you before you got the hat??? Although, it does not matter, we all know who real Russian is, and it is ME :)

Hey Miss Ukraine (or wanna-be-russian, whichever you prefer), shhhhhhh!!!

Ok, sir. First off thank you for calling me Miss Ukraine, I am happy that you think I am THAT pretty. Secondly, I am not a wanna-be-russian, I am one. I have Russian blood flowing in my veins. I may have been born and raised in Ukraine, but that would only make me a Ukrainian citizen, the prettiest out there according to fake lol. So here. Oh, and also I do speak better Russian than you, but you are pretty good too. Oh, why do I feel that there is one mean comment coming?!?!?!?

Let me start by simply describing the frase wanna-be-russian first so we're clear on that: "A person who thinks he/she is Russian and really desires to be one but in reality they are missing some very important, I should say key, features for that".

Now, since we're done with that, let's move on...

No comments on the first part of the response but the second one. Do you call a Chinese a person whose parents immigrated to US and he/she was born and raised here [in US] a Chinese. The obvious answer is NO. You call them a second generation Chinese immigrants who are Americans to the bones (with some culture occasionaly retained). Same with Russians who moved to Ukraine (you said it yourself that you were born and raised in Ukraine). Now since that's done, let me move to the last part.

Let me explain to you something very important. When you're Russian you don't usually ask other fellow Russian of the meaning of some words and frases that are usual street talk or even some more elaborative expressions or terms. If I say how "to put" wrong every time, the only thing it means is that I know the right way just never got used to using it, plus if you do a statistic then you'll see that half of Russian uses it wrong.

I know that you spoke Russian while you were growing up but you have to live in the contry to experience it's fullness, plus you were studying in pure Ukrainian high school... So yeah... Miss Ukraine

Hey, are you done typing? Cause I am falling asleep here. (Note to admin: you should limit the comment space to about 20 sentnces, not 20 pages) Honey, I see you are quite passionate about this. All I am gonna say is that I have always known and been told by my parents that we are Russian and we go way back for many generatons as Russians. There is not one Ukrainian word spoken in my family, and I went to the Ukrainian school (which is really rear in the pat of Ukraine where I live) just to be more well-rounded, and it was a very good school. You have really got to chill about this, babe. Nothing or noone will change my knowledge or appreciation of my heritage and nationality, which is Russian. I repeat nationality, not citizenship. I consider Ukraine to be my home country, but myself to be a Russian, and I appreciate and would not change for the world that combination in me.

We will let the facts decide and for now it as an open question (for some at least), as simple as that...

Whatever you say, sweetheart :)

By the way, it may sound pathetic, but I want to change some mistakes in my previous comment.

When I was talking about the school that I went to, I meant to say that it is very RARE in the PART of Ukraine where I live :)

Do I want to get into this? I think I'd rather sit on the sides and watch (: Popcorn anyone? :P

I'm part English, Irish, Scotch, Welsh, and I'm even 1/364th black (that's why I get crunk every now and then).

All I know is I'm 100% american and proud of it. :->

Please pass the popcorn.
