Nothing left - Escrito 66

There was never love
nor lust anymore
neither friendship even

There is nothing left
But a casual chat conversation
I warned you could upset your wife
And a lost phone call in my cell
that I will never return... ever



9) Science Documentaries





10) Singing

Pool Season



Here in Chile is currently very hot, c.a. 88° F. And Summer is beginning today!

It was kind of hot yesterday also, and I had the first refreshing swim of the season at my sister's pool, which was entirely available just for me. It was delicious!

I love pools painted in aquamarine. Water looks so clear. Actually I love that color in jewelry, clothes, furniture, and almost everything.

There I was. Floating in the middle of the quietness of a Sunday afternoon. Just looking at a georgeous perfectly unclouded sky, and deeply engrossed in my ruminations.

Suddenly, the past attacked me, and I remembered all of the Summers that I used to go to "Baños El Corazón" pool. A very big pool at a thermal baths venue in Chile. I spent entire afternoons in the water, just fooling around with my cousins.

I remind that going to the pool was always an occasion to celebrate, and we felt it was a time for party. What a nostalgia!

Have a great week :)

Lovely Vintage Xmas Music





As you may have noticed from my last posts, I hate buying presents and watching people go nuts in this season. But it is always comforting to listen to oldies. They remind me movies like IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE where Jimmy Stewart stole my heart, and a young Bing Crosby in WHITE CHRISTMAS. Adorable!

While people fight for gift paper at the stores, I strongly recommend smiling and listening to lovely vintage Xmas music at HOLIDAY CLASSICS

That is my favourite December radio station, so I wanted to share it with you. Don't stress and enjoy!

Crapstmas



Well, I don't particularly like this season of the year. Since everybody is stressed and running to buy presents, you can feel the tension in the air. Besides, my grandmother died on 24th December 2003.

I think the best way to face all the compromises and office festivities is ignoring them and acting as natural as always. Don't rush, don't panic, don't do much, just apply the minimum effort rule and everything is going to be smoother.

I hate the "duty" of being perfect in this season. Lovely decorations, perfect dinner, exact present for each one are way too out of the reach of a normal human being. I think the best way to go is to relax and enjoy!

Have a nice crapstmas :)

More Photos



Yes, here I post some more photos of me preparing myself for, and impersonating Ursula, the witch from The Little Mermaid in October.

You can see the tentacles of my skirt in the first pic bottom right.

Since I love make up, wigs and disguising I just had a great time.

Have a nice Tuesday :)

Have a great day :-)

Master or Slave?



You are the master of what you don't say, and the slave of what you say.

Ursula, the witch



Yeah, that's me in disguise once again. I impersonated Ursula, the witch from the movie The Little Mermaid. I had a great time.

Happy November to everyone!!!

Happy Birthday, my sweetie's dad!!!




Today, my sweetie's dad was born. It's his birthday!

Generally, I havent had close relationships with any of my former boyfriend dads, but mostly with their moms. But this time it is different: I really appreciate this gentleman.

Since he studied in Paris, France, we started conversations related to French culture since almost the minute we meet, and we talk a lot (I studied French language because of my work). And although my boyfriend says his dad is not a great talker -specially concerning his work- we usually have never ending conversations about the factory he runs.

I admire this man because his modesty and simple way of life. Even being a man with a great position, he is not a sophisticated person, and never looks anyone over his shoulder (as we say in Chile). He knows his job and he performes it correctly.

I've heard he is a great boss. He sacrifices his vacation for his workers to have theirs. He is fair and  worries about his workers wellness.

I wish him a so very happy birthday from the deepest bottom of my heart!!!

My Best Birthday EVER!!!



I sang all night long. Battery (Metallica's Tribute Band) sang Happy Birthday for me!!!

Those guys rock!!!

Tomorrow I'll celebrate my b-day

Tomorrow is the big day. A Metallica's Tribute Chilean band named Battery will play at the House Of Rock & Blues (http://www.houserock.cl/) and I'll be there to celebrate my 35th birthday. It is my dream come true!!!



It may sound silly for most of you, but you got to know that I am just a simple person who is happy with simple things. I really don't need more things or money.

Lets see: I love music. I love rock. I love guitar solos. I love Metallica. I love James Hetfield's voice. I just whisper for that to have a perfect evening.

My closest friends (almost all of them) and my sweetie will be there sharing my joy. I think that is what counts, being surrounded by your dearest ones.

Well, I know I'll miss my friends who cannot make it for several reasons, but mostly because next Monday is going to be a holiday, so many people is getting off Santiago de Chile for 3 entire days. That is georgeous! I can understand they want to go away.









Even though I think I'll have a good time. I'm so excited about it that I doubt I'd be able to sleep tonight!!!

Next Sunday is my Birthday!!!

October 11th, I'll be 35 years old of pure joy, love, emotions, and rock!!!



It's been 35 years of being in this life: my life!!!

I've been a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a niece, a girlfriend, a class mate, a job mate and a rocker in ways that I cannot describe because it is not for me to say.
But I enjoyed every moment of singing, dancing, shouting and laughing.

I'm glad I've been here all these years. I love my age!!!

My Cat - Blue Monday


Go for more great posts of this event kindly hosted by Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/.



I made this set for my cat to try to eat from the plate. But cats have not opposite thumbs so I gave up the knife and fork lessons.

Anyway, you can appreciate his blue eyes, blue collar, blue bell, and the blue flower in the china.

Have a lovely Blue Monday!!!
