Letter(s) to Joseph (USA)

Letter 1

Hello Joe! I want to admit how good to hear from you! Your reply is the magnificent event of my day! I have a happy smile on my face because you have become interested in me! I worry a little, I don't know from what to begin my e-mail, before this time I have never used the computer and Internet also, but it's very interestingly and surprisingly for me! Well, at the first I want to ask you, Joe, do you really understand my english language? I don't know, but when I studied in the university, it was five years ago, in that time I could write on English and understand it, and also my speaking English was very good, and now I think that I haven't lost the knowledge of english language, but nevertheless I want to ask you once again, please, estimate it, and how is my English language good. Dear Joe, I want to ask you, was my requesting message as the astonishment for you? And how do you look on it? It's important for me, because it's my first attempt of the acquaintance by the Internet. I heard about Internet-acquaintances before, and I didn't think that I'll do it. Some of my girlfriends have found the love in other countries, and many have the family and live happily! Around two months ago, my best girlfriend began the acquaintance by the Internet with the man from Germany, and she's very pleased by their correspondence. And my girlfriend has advised me to make the attempt to begin the acquaintance by the similar way. Why not..She has given me the name of the dating web-site myspace and I have decided to write to you. May be you will have the question, why I have chosen you among other men? I don't know how to explain my choice of you, but it seemed to me that your profile is the some especial and original than the profiles of other people. Also truely speaking, I was afraid that you could lose the interest to me after the sending of my requesting message, and fortunately it didn't happened, and I am very pleased with it!!! Well I'd like to tell you a little bit concerning me. As I told you before I'm 30 years old single chestnut haired female with grey eyes, my weight is 62 kgs, my height is 5'8", I don't smoke and don't drink, I have never been married and I don't have the children, but I like the kids, do you like the kids? :) I have many good friends, and we like to spend the time together. According of friends's words I am trustful, sensitive and cheerful female. I like my friends for their kindness and care. By the way I was born and live in beautiful russian city called Samara, around 1 thousand miles from Moscow, I love my city very much. But I have never been in USA and outside of Russia, and it would be interesting if you will tell me about your city where are you living. Would you like to tell me about it? Hopefully you would :) By the way I work as the nurse in the hospital. The point is that my mum is the doctor-surgeon, and I have decided to go on medical traces of my mother having ended the medical university five years ago. And what about your job? Do you like your job? What do you like to do in free time from your job? By the way what is the weather there in USA? Here is around +20 degrees Celsius. Oh well, on this note I'm finishing my message, the point is that I don't have the computer in my home, and I write you from the internet-cafe, and my time is almost finished, so I'll can not to write you every day, but I'll try to check the mailbox regularly, with an impatience I'll wait for your e-mails soon. In the application, as I promised you, I attached my pictures, what do you think about it? Do you like animals? As you can see I have one dog :) The dog is he, and his name is Polkan. Ok, take care and I hope to hear back from you really soon! I hope that we can continue to keep in touch and learn more about each other, I promise also to send more of my pictures in my following e-mails. I eagerly await your next message!

keep in touch,
sincerely,
Yuliya

Hi Dear Joe! I'm so very pleased to receive your reply, it brightens my days to hear from you!!! Every time I get an reply from you I am more and more impressed with you and get more excited about getting your next e-mail. But dear Joe, I am in a very sad mood right now and I am not sure how long I am going to feel this way. Yesterday my aunt Irina (the cousin of my father) passed away. She had a cancer of head's brain, I didn't tell you before, but it's so difficultly now. It was the hardest thing my parents and I ever had to do in our life. She is the most beautiful person I have ever known and I don't know what to do with out her in my life anymore. She raised me from a baby and she is also my God-Mother. It was very difficult to see such a strong woman laying in a hospital bed not being able to speak or move, but to see the strength in her eyes and all of the Love that she has in heart when I looked at her is worth more to me than anything that I will ever own. She lived a very long and beautiful life. She was 56 y.o. My father have the similar age, and my mother's age is 54 It's feels strange knowing that I'll never see her again. Sometimes I find myself just crying for no reason at all. There is a! big empty space in my heart now and I have to figure out some way to live with it. The aunt's funeral will be tomorrow..I am so sad, I am terribly sorry if I made you sad too Joe :( By the way my girlfriend Zina calmed me very much, and she decided to distract me from sadness by the going to see the movie, we with her just came from the cinema, we looked film-catastrophe "The Day After Tomorrow".. A terrible pictures: in Antarctic Continent the ice bursts, the birds throw jacks and with shout fly somewhere in an unknown direction, the animals in a zoo are beaten in a hysterics, the hail with the size of egg, tornado destroys an inscription "Hollywood" and all Los Angeles, New York at first disappears under a huge wave of water, and then freezes. And only the torch, which is in a stone hand of Statue Of Freedom, sticks out from the ice, as the reminding about existing at one time civilization... Horror. Really, I cried :( If I knew before that this film is so sad, I didn't have the desire to look this film..And did you look this movie, Joe? What kind of movie do you prefer; comedies, dramas, tragedies, romantic films? Most of all I prefer comedies as for The Mask, and Dumb and Dumber of Jim Carey. Also recently I looked The American Pie 1,2,3 at home on VHS/DVD player..Really very funny :) And what kind of music do you like? I like to listen to a large variety of music. I love to listen to classical music such as Bach, Beethoven; also I like Pink Floyd, Offsprings, Sting, Abba, Rolling Stones and so on..Also want to ask you Joe, do you like to read? I like read the culinary magazines, love to collect the recipes of tasty food, it's my hobby :) And what kind of food do you like, do you prefer to prepare the food at the home :) or do you like to go to the restaurants? I like to cook at home..Like fruit(especially bananas), pizza very much especially with the champignons and with cheese, do you like the pizza Joe? What is your favorite food? Mine is the spaghetti in tomato ketchup with a fried chicken :) Also we like to have the camping with my parents on the nature looking on the blue sky, my favorite color is blue and what's your favorite color? Do you like to fry sausages, fish or chicken on the nature? I like it, and don't want to hide from you Joe, I like the meat :) But not looking on it, I try to keep my body in a good constitution, like to have the sports aerobic and swimming in sport pool two times per one week besides morning gymnastics every day, I hope you like to sport too. Well...What to say. Dear Joe, want to say to you that I have a large desire to have the talking with you by the phone, I want to hear your voice very much, hope that you don't have the objections? But there is some problem, unfortunately I don't have the telephone at home. But I'll can make my calling to you from city's telegraphic station! How's this idea? Certainly, I asked about using of the telephone at friends, but they don't have the phones, and also I asked about using of the job's phone, but I was refused as I thought before. Business in that the hospital has the state order of the prohibition of phone's using in a personal purposes for all hospital's workers, by the strict order of hospital the phone line should be free always for reception of urgent emergency callings from the patients. Really it's a difficult situation with the phone here Joe. Therefore my calling to you in USA from city's telegraphic station is one way. So I need to know your phone number Joe, please, give me it in your next e-mail..Ok? And I'll can make my calling to you in USA soon. I really want to hear your voice, and hope you want mine.. Oh well Joe, I have got to close for now, I am going to say until we speak again. Because I don't like to say good-bye. You have a great day! I value our friendship very very much, and look forward to a better relationship. I hope to hear from you soon and I will be thinking of you! I also attach my following picture, most of all my pictures were made by my sister Lilya basically :) My parents with Lilya and Zina asked me to say to you deep hi!

take care for now,
thank you for inspiring me,
yours Yuliya

Hi Dear Joe!!!!! How are you? How good to hear from you again, I am happy that you replied back to me, Joe. It was so happy part of my day when I have saw your reply in the computer! Your pictures are amazing! But Joe, before the coming to the internet cafe, I had so sad mood because today was unpleasant case. We with my girlfriend Zina sat in the some bar, drank a tea.. And at this moment some man came to the bar, he was very in alcohol status, and he bored to us with Zina by his insolence and by his various abusive words. Eventually the cafe's security guard has protected us, but my mood was awfully bad :( But now my mood became so good because you e-mailed to me Joe and I have a happy face! Dear Joe, I see that we are interested in each other more and more, and I think that it's so good for us, because I have so good and liked friend as you, Joe!!!

I believe in God Jesus, on religion I'm a christian, and sometimes I like to go to the church, and do you like it? We went to the church after the aunt's funeral, we put a candle and prayed for her soul, now I am very happy that she has moved on to a better place. I know that she went straight to heaven and that God was waiting for her to home. I know that she is happy now! By the way we put a candle for my deceased uncle, it was five years ago when the mother's native brother died, we pray for the his soul, he was the officer of the army and was killed in Chechen Republic by the chechen gangsters.. May be you know about the conflict between Russia and Chechen terrorists. I hate the terrorists! It's so large shame for the people who engaged in terrorism, the terrorists are not the people! Dear Joe, do you agree with me? Also I remember that Sep.11,2001 was so Tragic Day for all american people, I remember that in this day were the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington :( So many innocent people were dead... Oh my God... Dear Joe, please, accept my most deepest condolences.. I know, God see this so dirty acts of this shame terrorists, and that God will be punish this terrorists!! Also may be you heard that the July, 5, 2003 was the tragic day for Moscow. In the Moscow Air Station Tushino was the rock concert. Many fans have came on this festival to listen their favourite music. By the way on the concert were two woman-terrorist and when the people bought the tickets on the concert in the cash departments, this two terrorists have blown up explosive devices which were under their clothes.. Oh my God.. It's so large nightmare! As I heard on TV, to this two girl-terrorists were around 16 years old..Oh my God. Also I hope that you heard about the 1st of September 2004 (The Day of Knowledge) is so tragic day for the tiny Russian town of Beslan and for all Russia, in this day hundreds of schoolchildren and adults were slaughtered by insane thugs-terrorists.. Nightmare :( Dear Joe, the terrorists will never stop killing us if they are not stopped.. I am really sorry if I write you about this so unpleasant things, o'key?

Hello my dear Joe!!! I hope you are well, as I am! I'm so much happy receiving your reply, as usual it brings me great joy to hear from you!! I feel closer and closer to YOU each day, I AM SO HAPPY WE FOUND EACH OTHER JOE! I want to say to you that your mails became an important part of me, they keep me smiling an make me feel all "warm inside", they make my heart skip a beat! Well dear Joe at the first I want to ask you, what's the date of your happy birthday? As for me, I was born on October, 21st, 1976, I'll be 31 y.o. soon! The point is that the day before yesterday my friend Zina had her Happy Birthday, she became 30 y.o. We with our girlfriends was so happy for her! We celebrated Zina's birthday in her home. It was a great time..Many happy smiles, gifts. I gave as a present to Zina a jacket :) But most of all we were surprised from news of Zina, she told that she and her german groom Fridrih decided to live together in Germany, in Munich City where Fridrih lives. Zina said to us that in some days she will go to do the necessary papers for her coming to Germany. We with our girlfriends are so happy for her and her happiness, she is so happy now! Zina is as a native sister for me, I love and respect her as the best friend, and I wish her only large happiness! By the way Zina is writing the message to her Fridrih sitting in the next computer here in the internet cafe, and just she said me that Fridrih sent her the gifts on her birthday some days ago by any Federal Express Service and by any UPS Postal Service, but Zina didn't receive this gifts, and she was sad, she didn't receive any postal receipts, she went to the post offices, but there said to Zina that there are no Parcels for her..Obviously the gifts were lost by this services for the unknown reasons, it's the larceny..Fridrih said that he sent to Zina beautiful necklace and some other jeweller products, but no delivery to Zina. Fridrih said to Zina that he will submit to court on this postal organizations, but Zina dissuades Fridrih from it. From this my dear Joe, please, don't send me anything by the any post office services, ok? I don't want that will happen as it was happen with Zina and Fridrih. Also dear Joe, I want to return to the problem of the terrorism. Some time back I heard that terrorists have sent the biologically infected messages to major government agencies and editions of the newspapers of USA. Nightmare! I worry so much if you will send me any parcels, that terrorists will can to infect your parcel, I hope that you understand my anxiety... Dear Joe, I want to say to you, that I am thinking about you more and more, I feel that our relations became more than friendship, really Joe??? I feel it by all my heart and soul, because I can't without your messages now. My parents asks about you so often, and I answer to them that our correspondence go so good, my mom and dad approve our relations, and they asked me to give you their warm hugs and greetings! I wish we lived closer to each other so we could meet and go do things together, and probably I'll look forward for my coming to visit you in the near future! Well, Joe, I must go now. I am attaching my following picture, it's me with Zina in the cafe on her birthday. I'm waiting for your e-mails as soon, as possible, so keep smiling and have a great day, accept hello from Zina and from my family of course!!!

Thinking about you, Joe,
kisses,
your Yuliya
