Then don't be forward, ye hussies. Take off your shoes, go back to the kitchen, and wait.

I love Yahoo!answers where someone posted the following question:

Should you pray for a husband or wait?

Okaaaaaay.

They got the following answer which is so perfect, it's reproduced in its entirety:

yolanda, you should do both. Pray for the man God has prepared for you and wants you to have.

The problem with many women who wind up in lowsy relationships is that they have the wrong criterion for a man. And know little about what they should expect in a truly Godly man.

You should know that if you are the type of woman described in the proverbs for us men to look for, then God does have a man ready for you, and is seeking you. For you are likened unto a valuable treasure; as all God's daughters are.

The treasure never seeks the treasure hunter. There is a good reason for this too. For look at it this way. If the treasure is seeking a particular hunter, jumping from one place to the next, how does it know that the hunter is looking in place that the treasure just left. Liken that unto the good woman. For if you have looked around and jumped to some other man... a Godly man would not consider you because you belong to another.

SO be patient my sista. Trust that God is working on h.i.m. that will love you til your dieing day. A truly Godly man is not perfect, but God will make h.i.m. perfect for you. Selah.

He will come soon. Maybe not as soon as you like, but it will be soon as compared to the time you would have to spend waiting on the next one once you've missed the initial one.

As for me, when I missed and messed up on the first Godly treasure that I had in my life (way back in the 9th grade), it was almost 20 years before I came accross a next treasure of that calibre... and you can best believe that when I found her... I made certain that I made my self known... for she trusted God, and God gave her a man just like she wanted: Not perfect; but perfect for her. And sad to think of it, but she said, about the same amount of time went by for her...

I confess to being puzzled as to what the Japanese Emperor has to do with it and why he is supposed to be the questioner's Dad (the only H.I.M. aka 'His Imperial Majesty' left around is the Emperor of Japan), especially since he is not a Christian, but I suppose the Godly people know what I do not.

There is also the following question:

How many Vile Temptresses does it take for an Amish man to finally give in?

Heh.

YES!

72 episodes in, and Anna finally admitted she loves Vladimir back. Well, she didn’t say ILY, but I think when the lady in question:

a. tells the guy things like ‘The most important thing is I am home [his, btw]. And you are near.’
b. Continues by staring at him with her anime eyes, touching his cheek and repeating things like ‘I have never felt so good, never’ when he is sitting up there, a few inches away and is staring at her.
c. There is prolonged kissing

I consider her at least mildly interested :D

So, basically, it’s clear if you are hot and angsty and rescue the heroine repeatedly, she will love you back :D

Of course, in order to get to that point, Anna had proven that she has no brains at all*, but hey, I don’t think Vladimir loves her for her mind :D

rambling on heroine's dimness and other things )

Ooooh, and here is the vid of the scene, with my translations.



Translations behind cut )

Of course, seeing that there are almost 50 eps left, I can only wait in giddy anticipation what kind of angst they will get to keep them apart for the duration :D

Not related to anything above, but this video of hot-dog eating contest between Kobayashi, a Japanese hotdog champion, and a bear, is something that can make anyone's year!

Delhi has long struggled to cope with the marauding monkeys
The deputy mayor of the Indian capital Delhi has died a day after being attacked by a horde of wild monkeys.

SS Bajwa suffered serious head injuries when he fell from the first-floor terrace of his home on Saturday morning trying to fight off the monkeys.

The city has long struggled to counter its plague of monkeys, which invade government complexes and temples, snatch food and scare passers-by.

The High Court demanded the city find an answer to the problem last year.

Solution elusive

One approach has been to train bands of larger, more ferocious langur monkeys to go after the smaller groups of Rhesus macaques.

The city has also employed monkey catchers to round them up so they can be moved to forests.

But the problem has persisted.

Culling is seen as unacceptable to devout Hindus, who revere the monkeys as a manifestation of the monkey god Hanuman, and often feed them bananas and peanuts.

Urban development around the city has also been blamed for destroying the monkeys' natural habitat.

Mr Bajwa, a member of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), is survived by his wife and a son, according to the Press Trust of India news agency.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China's Shaolin Temple, the cradle of Chinese kung fu, is demanding an apology from an Internet user who said its monks had once been beaten in unarmed combat by a Japanese ninja, Chinese media reported on Friday.

Shaolin Temple, in the northern province of Henan, became famous in the West as the training ground for Kwai Chang "Grasshopper" Caine in the 1970s "Kung Fu" TV series.

Ninjas -- professional assassins trained in martial arts -- date back to mediaeval Japan.

"The so-called defeat is purely fabricated, and we demand the Internet user to apologise to the whole nation for the wrongs he or she did," the Beijing News said, citing a notice announced by a lawyer for the Shaolin monks.

Relations between Chinese and Japanese are sensitive at the best of times, with emotions still running high over Japan's invasion and occupation of parts of China in the first half of the 20th Century.

The Internet user, calling themselves "Five Minutes Every Day", said on an online forum last week that a Japanese ninja came to Shaolin, asked for a fight and many monks failed to beat him, the newspaper said.

"The facts that the monks could not defeat a Japanese ninja showed that they were named as kung fu masters in vain," the Internet user was quoted as saying in the post.

The Shaolin temple "strongly condemned the horrible deeds" of the user, the newspaper said.

"It is not only extremely irresponsible behaviour with respect to the Shaolin temple and its monks, but also to the whole martial art and Chinese nation," it quoted the monks as saying.

MOSCOW - When he flexes Russia's diplomatic and military muscle, Vladimir Putin always makes headlines.

But few could have predicted the squall of gossip and speculation that erupted after the president stripped off his shirt for the cameras while vacationing in the Siberian mountains last week.

The resulting images, prominently enshrined on the presidential Web site, inspired admiration, criticism and some racing pulses among his admirers.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Buddhist sutras are probably the last thing one expects to hear in a dim, smoky jazz club, but climb the narrow stairs up to Sound Music Bar Chippy in Tokyo's Edogawa Ward on the right night, and it will be Sanskrit, not saxophones, that fill the air.

Dressed in black robes and unceremoniously squeezed between a drum set and piano are Gojun Ichihashi, Shunkou Masuda and Hogen Natori, three Shingon Buddhist monks who come to Chippy once a month to chant sutras and remind patrons that Buddhism can be a part of daily life.

"I wanted a place where people could come after work, have some sake and experience Buddhism," said Natori, who first had the idea for the sutra sessions while listening to jazz at Chippy five years ago.

Buddhist temples, which once served an important role in community networks, have been criticised as only coming into people's lives for funerals and memorial services.

Soaking in the ritualistic harmonies while lounging on Chippy's dark red velvet sofas and downing beers, the mostly middle-aged bar-goers did not disagree.

"I don't go to temples unless someone dies," said Osamu Yamane, 68, who was hearing the monks perform for the first time. He said that, while the singing reminded him of his dead grandfather, he would likely come again.

The monks are currently the only Buddhist act in Tokyo's night clubs, but they invite their colleagues to take up song.

"If everyone did this, Buddhism would be much more popular," said Natori, 48. "Maybe after I turn 60, I'll climb mountains and become a sacred monk. For now, I think leaving the temple and going out to the people is the best way."

From here.

BANGKOK, Thailand - Thai police officers who break rules will be forced to wear hot pink armbands featuring "Hello Kitty," the Japanese icon of cute, as a mark of shame, a senior officer said Monday.

Police officers caught littering, parking in a prohibited area, or arriving late — among other misdemeanors — will be forced to stay in the division office and wear the armband all day, said Police Col. Pongpat Chayaphan. The officers won't wear the armband in public.

The striking armband features Hello Kitty sitting atop two hearts.

"Simple warnings no longer work. This new twist is expected to make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor," said Pongpat, acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division in Bangkok.

"(Hello) Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It's not something macho police officers want covering their biceps," Pongpat said.

He said police caught breaking the law will be subject the same fines and penalties as any other members of the public.

"We want to make sure that we do not condone small offenses," Pongpat said, adding that the CSD believed that getting tough on petty misdemeanors would lead to fewer cases of more serious offenses including abuse of power and mistreatment of the public by police officers.

Hello Kitty, invented by Sanrio Co. in 1974, has been popular for years with children and young women. The celebrity cat adorns everything from diamond-studded jewelry, Fender guitars and digital cameras to lunch boxes, T-shirts and stationery.
