hey, i'm not dead. i know i have been posting on an almost weekly basis, but it sort of fell off this time. sorry i dropped the ball. i'll say my pentance later.

anyway, i'm in the middle of my practicum and it's going well. i'm meeting my counterpart next week and on August 20, i'm off to ruskulova! hoot hoot.

so, here's my fun kazakhstan story: yesterday my 19 year old host aunt and my 14 year old host sister GOT INTO A KNOCK DOWN, DRAG OUT GIRL FIGHT!!!!! it was the most hilarious thing ever.

let me briefly translate and reinact the situation:

adela: muhabbot, could you please help me carry the scraps to the cows? it's heavy.

muhabbot: you can carry it yourself. you are strong enough, judging by the width of your fat ass.

adela: shut up, bitch. help me carry the food to the cows.

muhabbot: why carry the food? it's already in front of a cow.

adela: shut your whore mouth! i'd rather be a cow that a ugly she-wolf, bitch.

muhabbot: fat-ass!!

adela: bitch!!

then they attacked. . . it was like two monkeys battling over who can dance for the organ grinder. the only thing that stopped them from clawing eachother's eyes out in typical cat-like fashion was my host mother beating adela into submission with metal spoon while my host grandmother hit muhabbot repeatedly with a rubber hose.

it was HI-larious.

now i'm off to buy a winter coat. i'll report more later.

Wow. I never knew the Kazakhs (is that how you spell the noun?) could get so angry. They seemed like a peace-loving and noble people.

NO iDEA WHY THAT PUBLISHED. piece of blog didn't let me edit and spell-check.

As I was saying, HMpnK kheplempt, cough,

In my mind's eye I saw you in an old western where everyone's fighting an throwing chairs and whiskey bottles about and there you are, calmly paying no attetiion to anything other than the iced te you are drinking.

You stand up, after a bottle whizzes pass you head, calmly down your tea and walk away quietly, as if everything is as it should be.

I don't think it was a white hat, it more of a brown, park ranger type. Howsoever, a most excellent recount of the activities.

Alway look foward to catching the adventures of ashli.

Sounds as though you're having a good time over in the Stan, but yes as Mark has mentioned it is a very sad day for the Peter Jennings Fan Club. {tear}{sniffle} The man who so bravely anchored the news for us and our fellow Tappanites during those scary, uncertain days following 9-11 is no more.

It sounds like your having the best time ever!!! I wish I could have been there with you. Or should I say I wish I could be there with you.
Just to set the record straight Aunt JoDee and I haven't fought like that since we were kids! Thank you very much.
So do you know what your address will be? Did you find a winter coat? How is the shopping in K-stan?
I hope your next host family is as cool as this family is. I hope they treat you as well as this family does.
Love you

Hey, anominimouse,

You got something to say, ? SAY IT.

I know I'm spoiled. But I love my children and I am so very proud of them.

You wish, no I do. How can anyone not be?

without chhhildren, how far away from eality can you be?

alley minimouse, I is sorry to lash out at you. you're'll be likely only doing what you feal is best for whomever,

Thank you for posting on this site. All who are aware of the fact that Rokulovo is pretty much exactly on the other side of the planet is with me to place prayers and love to the young women who is their in our stead. (blah, blah, blah- bleagh-!)

I'm sure Ashli is aware of her father's short-comings and is glad to hear from anyone who may know of its own self. Quite brave.

So, Ashli, I did not think my writeing would bother such emotion.

I'll write,

c'mon, the discription of the event did sound like an old western saloon fight. Give it up, the rendering of Ash's account is severe. It was like being there, and I know how calm our Ashli is in unusual situations!!

Ryan, I'm old fashioned. But I do need a new dictionary. However, I.m blameing it on this dvorkian keyboard.

Luv'Ya Ash,

Eric, just spend a few precious minutes and look at your posts before you hit the "login & publish" button...
You don't need a dictionary (well, maybe you do), just a clear eye and a few moments of reflection on what you wrote and, hopefully, that will let you make necessary changes before you post something on the Internet that can't be taken back.

I'm enjoying your blog even though I haven't been commenting. But I check in on a regular basis. Keep it up and live your adventure to its fullest!

PLEASE take all the personal advice and criticisms to private e-mail.This is about Ashli and her adventures!!! Not an ego-fest forum for bashing each other. If she doesn't want something on here, Ashli is quite capable of deleting things herself.

Having said that,
Ash! What sort of winter coat did you end up with? I look forward to when you will be able to take and post pictures . Vicarious vacationing raWks!

You're talking about the Nationals? At the Wood County Fairgrounds?

Oh, wait, I've a great memory(s) from there, with Jim (your dad).

Sorry,, This is Ashli's forum to let us know about how things are going on with her. Big Sis may have a point.


Maybe we could exchange e-mail adresses and talk amoungst ourselves.


Please keep them only to me @ mine e-.

Nyah!! {]:|-}


we check it alot (KZEXTRAvaganza) Alot more often than ashli ever has a chance to log. we all miss her and i may believe we're all a wee bit scared for her well being. well folks, all of those jitters should soon fall away and then the responses will become what it is why; that ashli created this spot.

Ahsli loves her family, all, and the charecter of it.

Poeple, pick up a pen.

luv y'all

As you may or may not know, Mike and Katy got married yesterday. It was pretty cool. When the bootie dancing started at the reception, I could only shake my head in shame at the girls who claimed that what they were doing was "bootie dancing." You could have schooled them all and not even broken out a sweat.
