Favourite things

Do you have the most favourite thing that you use on the daily basis?
I do.
My favourite thing is this vintage "cup", though actually it's a glass with a glass holder.
It actually makes the process of drinking tea even more enjoyable for me.
Just look at it! Isn't it incredibly stylish? And those trees give it a sweet Christmasy feeling...)

My favourite treatment

I still think there is no better treatment for mid-season cold than tea, honey and lemons.

 Hot herbal tea makes you cozy, honey gives some sweetness and the smell of citrus raises your spirits :)

The evening of Kharm's

On one occasion a man went off to work 
and on the way he met another man who, 
having bought a loaf of Polish bread, 
was going his way home.
And that's just about all there is to it.

On the first of April we (my theater friends and me) participated in the literary soirée devoted to Daniil Kharms's literary works. Daniil Kharms was an early Soviet-era surrealist and absurdist poet, writer and dramatist. During his lifetime, Kharms was best-known for his humorous children's stories. His other works, held in private archives, were rediscovered in the late 1960s and today his fame rests chiefly on his experimental, absurd prose pieces.

Daniil Kharms

The evening was a bit funny, a bit sad, a bit ironic and a bit tragic... We read poems and sang absurd... The atmosphere was wonderful - spoons, cups, pots hanging from the ceiling... truly absurd!

 We did our variation of the "Rebellion".

Nastya and Anya before going on stage

-- Drink vinegar, gentlemen -- said Shuyev.
No one gave him any reply.
-- Gentlemen! -- shouted Shuyev -- I propose to you the drinking of vinegar!
Makaronov got up from his armchair and said: -- I welcome Shuyev's idea. Let's drink vinegar.
Rastopyakin said: -- I shall not be drinking vinegar.
At this point a silence set in and everyone began to look at Shuyev. Shuyev sat stony-faced. It was not clear what he was thinking.

 Three minutes went by. Suchkov smothered a cough. Ryvin scratched his mouth. Kaltayev adjusted his tie. Makaronov jiggled his ears and his nose. And Rastopyakin, slumped against the back of his armchair, was looking as if indifferently into the fireplace.
Seven or eight more minutes went by.
Ryvin stood up and went out of the room on tiptoe.
Kaltayev followed him with his eyes.

 When the door had closed behind Ryvin, Shuyev said: -- So. The rebel has departed. To the devil with the rebel!
Everyone looked at each other in surprise, and Rastopyakin raised his head and fixed his gaze on Shuyev.
Shuyev said sternly: -- He who rebels is a scoundrel!
Suchkov cautiously, under the table, shrugged his shoulders.
-- I am in favour of the drinking of vinegar -- Makaronov said quietly and looked expectantly at Shuyev.
Rastopyakin hiccupped and, with embarrassment, blushed like a maiden.
-- Death to the rebels! -- shouted Suchkov, baring his blackish teeth.

( The end )

Overall I enjoyed this experience a lot! We had much fun preparing for our scene and I liked our performance as well. I hope that's not the last time us doing something like that!

Lifeguard Training. Day 3

First stage completed! I passed my lifeguard test. Exhausted, but happy. Now the only thing left is to finish my training at the lifeguard camp at the end of May. Well, not the only thing of course. I need to get a visa, buy tickets and all that kind of stuff... Oh, that's going to be a very busy spring...

World Theater Day!

On the March 27 is the World Theater Day!
In my family it is a very important holiday. My parents run a theater, so I've been in this atmosphere since childhood - theater is my home and our theater crew is my second (and first :) family. When I was in high school, I helped my parents in the theater a lot and today I'm in our University drama club myself! I don't think I'm going to choose it as my future profession, but as a hobby I enjoy it a lot. 

So happy Theater Day!

Lifeguard training. Day 2

Hard day. We did more training, but the rescuing techniques become more and more difficult. Today we used a back board and were taught how a lifeguard should response when the guest in distress has a neck or spinal injury. Oh, I hope I won't mix up anything. Also we were shown how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (I've never imagined I'm going to to anything like that!) Tomorrow we have the final test, so the rest of the day I'm going to study the material.
Oh, and there is one funny thing I've noticed - sometimes I tend to behave like a real teacher (which I actually my major in the University - English teacher :)
Our instructors were testing our English knowledge today, so we had to read some lifeguard-related sentences in English. Oh, I got a headache from all those Russian "r"-s and "th"-s! =) I was about to start making corrections (just like on our phonetics classes) Yes, I'm horrid. I guess I need to take it easy :)

Lifeguard training. Day 1

Yes, I'm through the first day of my lifeguard training. I'm a bit worn-out but with a touch of happiness. Actually it was much more interesting than I expected. And the swimming test wasn't that hard - we had to swim across the swimming pool, then reach the bottom of the pool and finally float for one minute not using your hard. Likely I passed everything (as usual I was underestimate my abilities and exaggerating the difficulty of the task). The we were shown several rescuing techniques and then listening to some theoretical material (also with some practice). Now I know what to do if somebody is choking and stuff like that. So actually it is very interesting and useful. Also we have very fun instructors and there are quite funny guys in my lifeguard group. So, I should say that I like it a lot! And I have two more days to go)))

Get ready for summer!

Tomorrow is the first day of my lifeguard training. I'm planning to work as a lifeguard in the swimming pool this summer, so I need to complete this training. I'm quite nervous. I guess I'll have to pass some kind of exam or something like that... and listen to a small course of lectures. I just hope everything will go smoothly. And then - hello summer! :)
