"Tell me yourself, I challenge you--answer. Imagine that you are creating a fabric of human destiny with the object of making men happy in the end, giving them peace and rest at last, but that it was essential to torture to death one tiny creature...and to found that edifice on its unavenged tears, would you consent to be the architect on those conditions. Tell me, and tell the truth." ~~Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

"I despise nationalism. For me the world contains only two nations--the nation of good people and the nation of bad people. I am a nationalist of the nation of good people." ~~Yevgeny Yevtushenko

I'm just a John Lennon girl in a Lee Greenwood world.

There are two types of idealists in this world. Those who think things are perfect, and those who think they can make things perfect.

Overheard:

"Now how am I going to get out of this one. Oh, wait, I'll use a plot device!"
~~Billy P. (aka Lupo)

"Here's you a snickers--get over it!" Andrew G.

Greetings and salutations,

I am Demetria, High Priestess of Typos and Dumb, Stupid Grammar Mistakes that I shouldn't make because I actually do know better.

I'm not sure why anyone would want to know about me, but hey I'm bored right now sooo...

Name: Demetria

Age: Read my work and guess. No wait, don't do that cause pretty much everything here is two years old.

I'm going to take over the world. It will happen before two days after my thirty-fifth birthday. Why? Well, because the whole plan falls apart after that--really, it does. And, yes, the paradox that I'm both a pacifist who believes deeply that the government should be as small as possible, and a megalomaniac is not lost to me. My mother said I couldn't tell people I was going to be river bum when I grew up; the world dictatrix complex got started soon after that.

Constructive criticism is appreciated and desired. I know my grammar is terrible, but please point it out anyway because--like the dirty socks on my bedroom floor--chances are it'll take me six months to notice mistakes if left to my own devices. I will then proceed to kick myself and edit again. I am trying to improve.

New review policy. I review back if you leave me a review that is more than "good job" or something equally generic. If you like it, tell me what you like. If you hate it; tell me what you hate.

I seriously doubt that I will be posting anything new; however, I will still do my best to return any new reviews I receive.
