My mom and stepdad (and probably both grandparents) are gone since morning. They went to that temple in Moscow where the Cincture of the Virgin Mary is on display. The thing is all over the news, it’s crazy, there are so much people that the line of them does not even move. Seriously, there was a reportage about it on one of the main TV channels of Russia (НТВ). Mom called me and asked to tape the news program about it ‘cause they asked her questions and she must be somewhere there. I watched it and taped it, bud sadly (or on the contrary - luckily) they didn’t show hew. But they did show a huge mass of people all over Frunsenskaia water-side (this picture is a two days old, what happens there now is 10 times worse. And it’s snowy and cold and dark).
I’m sick of my parents being so religious. Glad I was smart and didn’t go with them (as if!). Yesterday they tried to pursue me to go, telling how this “cincture” helps young girls to get married and whatever.
[I said I don’t believe that stuff.
And then my stepdad shouted: But you have got to believe!!!! Do you wanna get married??? Do you wanna be happy at all?????!!!!!
I said: Yep, I wanna be happy. But married - not really. (Actually I do want to marry, but only not like that, not with the ‘help’ of some superstitious thingy that is thousands of years). But I don’t believe in all this mythical stuff of your so, please, stop shoving your religion into my throat!!!!]
Ah, well. They still there! They went off early in the morning, somewhere around 6am, and they are still there and they didn’t even see that thing yet and mom texted me saying they won’t be back till tomorrow. They will stay untill they see that damn thing. Ugh!
