FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE?

I decided to write Nadya back for a couple of reasons:
1)I've been bored as Hell lately, and her broken English letters crack me up!
2) Sometimes, blog material is hard to come by!
3.) If only to give Jon, Marc, and Neighbor Dave something to talk about

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I GIVE YOU THE FUTURE MRS. PHILIP DESKINS!

Heeeelooooo!

I guess Mother Russia has Glamour Shots!


Hello Philip!
My name is Nadya. This letter shows you, that I not live in the USA. It is a
mistake. I live in Russia. I wrote, that I live in Russia, but it was said
anyhow, that I'm from the USA, therefore not to be surprised. I live in Russia.
The matter is that acquaintance on the Internet now is popular all over the
world. I have noticed
your profile. Philip, you live in the USA and this is a good place to live!
America is the country of freedom. I've never been to the USA however, but I
know about your country much. Each person has the right to a good life and you
have enough freedom to have a worthy life. Everyone has equal opportunities. In
the USA I think more opportunities for a good life. There where I now live is
not the best place to live and create a family. But even in such country I can
do a good living. I like to work, I have family values and I want to have the
best life with a good man, the man who I shall love and who will love me as
well. I think that women here are good enough to be the wife of the American.
I am the woman who appreciates love, fidelity, honesty. I am not spoiled by easy
and carefree life.
I saw your profile on the Internet and you have drawn my attention. We
can know each other better. I also want to draw your attention by my letter and
that's why today I won't write much to you. I only willl tell now, that I'm of
28 years. My height is 172 centimeters (5 ’ 7 "). My weight is 55 kg (120
pounds).
I hope, that you understand, that I want to create a family, I want to live in
the USA and to have the best life. I achieved in life much, I have got used to
go up to the end in achieving the purpose. I have verything in this life except
for family and true love. I am searching for love now. I am not a poor woman. I
belong to the middle class in Russia. I have a good work and I have enough money
for living here. Besides I am rich spiritually.
I hope, you can see my pictures. With hope, Nadya.

One question: How can you have a middle class in Russia? It's still communist, right? Or no? I forget.
Anyway, As much as hate to admit Marc is right, I agree with him. This is either a scam or someone wanting a greencard. Don't worry, I'm not gonna send her my credit card number or anything. And if it's a greencard she's after, well I guess I could use a good sex slave. Hell, who couldn't?

Nice looking, but you're gonna feel like shit if she is for real.
Strangely though, Match.com returns no results for a 28 year old female -5'7" woman living in the Russian Federation...

As info, The Russian Federation is a 'Federal Presidential Republic'. The 'Red Dawn' days are long gone. (cue 'Winds of Change' by the Scorpions) The current president is Владимир Путин (you may call him President Putin).

Thanks for the Info Dave! I guess when I think of Russia I always think of those old James Bond movies. I suppose I couldve googled it, huh? By the way, Nadya has since wrote me again and I'm getting the feeling she may be an actual person, so I already kinda feel like shit!
WOLVERINES!

Sherman said...

Why should you feel like shit? If she's sending out emails to some guy with a profile online, she has to believe it's less than likely to get anywhere. Of course, we've seen her response, but not your emails to her. You're not leading her on, are you? Toying with her emotions? Sending a picture of some other guy who is actually good looking? Asking her for naked pictures (if so, be sure to post them)? Telling her you'll marry her?

Maybe you know, Putin & co. are allegedly behind the recent poisoning of former KGB spy Litvinenko? They poisoned him with polonium 210 which they then found traces of in his home, a sushi bar and a hotel where he visited so this has caused a big public health scare in London. Other people may have been contaminated. Litvinenko suffered for a month before he died, lost his hair and everything. He lived in London with his wife and children.

I don't think you should 'feel bad'. I don't imagine Nadya is naive. She knows the deal.

GOOD LORD RUN, PHIL! She is so looking for a green card (or whatever)

So what if she's looking for a greencard - go for it Phil! Don't feel bad either - she contacted you first. At minimum, have her visit for a week (on her own dime)and make your decision then.

Jon said...

Do they have dimes in Russia?

Anonymous said...

I didn't know you were a numismatic Jon.
A Ruble is divided into 100 Kopeks (or Copecks), and a 10 Kopek piece is listed, but since 1 Ruble is worth about 4 US pennies, I'd hold out for a US dime....
I need to get out more.
Neighbor Dave

Amber said...

A couple things... first of all, a Ruble is worth about a trillion dollars in my mind. Second of all, I appreciate that the Russians have Glamour Shots, but why is she holding up her hair? Do they not have bobby pins? Third of all, even if she doesn't really like you, she's sure wanting to get with you. Isn't that usually enough? Do it to it, Phil!!

Sherman said...

Don't worry, Jon. You can probably find plenty of dimes in Russia. Over a third of their economy is done on the black market, and black markets favor US money.

I'm a bit surprised by the support for the "Use the prospect of a green card to get cheap sex from a Russian girl" theory. After all, it is a bit like higher grade human trafficking.

MistyBarker said...

I agree with Marc. Lets see your emails to her.
Hell....I think you should go for it. Sex slave doesnt sound so bad does it? Heck...see if she has a friend for Jon!

Putin is a dog. I knew he was a dog back in 1995.

Know what else I knew in 1995? People who are kind, gentle and life-respecting folks do not debate whether or not someone may make a good sex slave.

This woman may feel like Phil could provide her with a good life. She may feel like it's OK to offer her body (sex), so she will not have to que for food. Perhaps some of us would do the same. Perhaps, men, your sisters might do the same.

When she signed up for an online dating service I doubt she knew she was putting herself up for critique from a bunch of Americans, who don't know what it's like to live in a place where when you run out of toilet paper there might be some for sale in your village and there might not be.

Anonymous said...

no toilet paper to spare.. isn't that an episode of that old Seinfeld show?

Philip Deskins said...

A few points
1) I'll vouch for my friends. Aside from Marc, they are all kind, gentle, and life respecting folks.
2.) Who's debating whether or not this woman would be a good sex slave? It's obvious she would be a great one!
3. I can remember living in a household that was so poor we had to "borrow" toliet paper from Toys R Us....Does that count?
4. Are you gonna help me on this movie or not Liz?

Jon said...

WOW

Sherman said...

Sure, Phil, keep telling yourself that so you can sleep at night while betraying the misplaced trust that poor girl put in you.

Shannon said...

I have lived in a place where you don't have toilet paper you use the daily 'rag' the newspaper written by useless journalists (useless because they would be put in jail, or worse, shot like the Russian journalist that Litvinenko was investigating--if they were productively critical.) And women and men do what they want/need to do to get what they want/need. I don't think one party (i.e. Phil) has all the power here. Most relationships have some sort of economic exchange involved although its seems to oversimplify them if you reduce them to just that. In other words, its more complex than she's good and innocent and he's powerful and bad right? Its also about more than a green card although that may figure in her thoughts. I thought about my life partner's work & leisure habits, citizenship, age, looks, debt, religion, politics, values etc. etc. Conflicts over Money and Sex are the primary causes of divorce so you're fooling yourself if you think your relationship is any more or less pure because you're with an American.

Ms. Thomas said...

Shannon's right. Forget marriage. Just have sex with her. That way both people are giving their consent to getting screwed.

Jana said...

My mom is an illegal immigrant, still waiting on her greencard. Do you want to help her out Phil?

Anonymous said...

me thinks Shannon not understand sarcasm...or maybe Shannon possesses such superior sarcasm that I not understand...
hmmm....

Ms. Thomas said...

The S in Shannon actually stands for Superior... silly rabbit anon.
