One moment in time

There are things that only happen in the presence of certain people (I’ve learned that more than 10 years ago, but I forgot it until now). Those moments are the magical ones, when some of the buildings appear in a new light, when some of the words without meaning seem charged with something else. I love those moments. And those people. And I always will. I think, without exaggerating, that my heart will be close to some man to whom I was never romantically involved forever (true enough, I can only count them on the fingers of one hand – don’t even need all of them).

Prima zi de lucru

Pe 26 noiembrie anul trecut mergeam pentru ultima data la serviciu la Bucuresti, iar pe 26 martie am inceput lucrul aici. Dar nu oricum, ci cu efort, facand un act in plus, Autonomo (un soi de PFA). Ma rog, partea dragutza e ca-mi place mult. Mai sunt si alte cateva parti dragutze pe care le enunt ca fiind colegii: Eva e din Cehia, Martine din Franta, Daniele din Italia. Ma simt bine cu nivelul meu de spaniola, caci e o limba straina pentru toti (eu o vorbesc, totusi, cel mai prost).
Dar pentru ca eu nu scriu lucruri fara sens, in postul acesta sensul este urmatorul: marti dupa-masa, pe la 6, m-a lovit una dintre cele mai cumplite gripe/raceli/viroze de care-mi amintesc: frisoane, tulburari de vedere, tuse, muci, dureri de cap (ce mai, tot tacamul). Asa ca miercuri dimineata, indopata cu medicamente care reduc simptomele si care mi-au incetinit reactiile, m-am infiintat la lucru. Bluza de pe mine era uda, uda, parul naclait (n-am indraznit sa-l spal, ca sa nu agravez situatia), iar privirea tulbure. Ce-or fi zis toti cei aproape 40 de colegi ai mei care m-au cunoscut atunci! Imi venea permanent sa rad cand imi imaginam cum ma vedeau ei. Norocul meu ca de a doua zi am fost mai bine, deci cred ca m-am scos.

Familia lui Harry

Asadar, azi noapte (spre dimineata) am terminat si ultimul volum din Harry Potter (and the Deathly Hallows). M-a lasat cu un gust dulce-amar, pentru ca mi-au placut aventurile lui (sunt mai coole in limba originala!). Mi-ar fi placut sa stiu ca vor mai veni si alte volume, dar, pe de alta parte, cat sa se mai lupte bietul baiat? Si, oricum, daca el a reusit sa aiba, pana la final, o viata buna, pentru noi, astialaltii, care n-avem lupte demonice de dus, ar trebui sa fie floare la ureche, nu?

Cesare Borgia

Am citit mult despre sora lui, Lucrezia, care, pe vremuri, m-a fascinat. Ieri am descoperit ca Cesare a murit la Viana, in Navarra, unde, tot ieri, era vant si frig, dar frumos. Micile localitati spaniole imi par neschimbate, asa cum trebuie sa fi aratat cu secole in urma; ma nedumereste faptul ca oamenii care le populeaza sunt imbracati ca mine si ca tine si ca au invatat sa conduca masini. De ce nu poarta hainele lor, pe care eu le stiu doar din poze si din filme?

Un filosof

Eu n-am stiut ca Schopenhauer s-a preocupat de homosexualitate. Interesant, ce sa zic!
He wrote that only those who were too old or too young to reproduce strong, healthy children would resort to pederasty (Schopenhauer considered pederasty to be in itself a vice). De pe wiki. O sa mai caut opinii despre subiect, mai bine la grecii vechi...


Suntem in vizita la masina noastra, ceea ce mi-a amintit de dimineata ca am uitat de aceasta poveste de 1/zi de la Irina.

Asadar, cica pe 18 martie 1858 s-a nascut inginerul Rudolf Diesel, cel care a inventat motorul omonim. Se mai spune ca s-ar fi sinucis, din motive financiare, pentru ca motorul nu a fost un succes. Macar s-a sinucis frumos: s-a aruncat in mare!

16 martie 2008


nisip in par. De la Vilassar del Mar, 37 de minute cu trenul de apropiere, de la gara Sants, la 7 minute de casa.


Ca, pana la urma, tot singur te descurci in viata, asta am inteles eu din Harry Potter 6 (aia cu printul semipur), pe care am devorat-o in 2 zile (J. m-a intrebat daca citesc pe bune - mi-a fost rusine sa-i spun ca e o carte de copii, care se citeste usor, pentru ca el are pana acum o parere buna despre mine).
M-am apucat cu avant de partea a 7-a, care-mi va lua mai mult. Caci e pe englezeste. Asadar, m-am gandit sa propun o interactiune (sa invatam cuvinte noi). Cine stie ce inseamna urmatoarele:
- deathly hallows
- wand
- cloak?
O sa ma distrez bine cu Harry asta si presimt ca o sa le citesc si pe primele sase in engleza. Ca pe Severus Plesneala il cheama aici Severus Snape, ceea ce e simplutz, dar o sa fie cool cand n-o sa recunosc alte personajele. Tocmai am inceput. Cine e Yaxley, asta? Insa, in ajutor meu vine asta.

Hijos de Babel

Dentista, fugarita sa termine in doua zile treaba la dintii mei, stia unde locuiesc. Si ma intreaba, de conversatie, cum e cu Hijos de Babel. Ii marturisesc ca nu ma uit la televizor. Noroc ca am aflat despre ce era vorba in stirile Hotnews.

Ca peste tot!

Azi am fost timp de 4 ore la institutiile statului roman. Am facut un flotant pentru cineva, am schimbat un abonament la internet, am schimbat numele de la "curent" si, de asemenea, mi-am schimbat numele pe care voi plati de acum inainte impozite, la primarie.
Am facut un snop de copii dupa toate actele, am completat un miliard de formulare si am cautat dosar cu sina (nici nu credeam ca mai exista). Intr-un final apoteotic, prin ploaie intensa, am ajuns si la dentist. Uda, murdara de noroi si nervoasa. Dar am rezolvat.
Maine ma mai duc pe la banci, sa vad daca e posibil sa-mi schimb numele de pe carduri.
Nu mi s-a parut nici simplu, nici complicat, am intalnit formulare stupide (la electricitate am completat cerere de deconectare, dar una de conectare pe noul nume nu!), dar stiu ca, in urma mea, cineva isi va lua liber pe 19 pentru a incheia aceste demersuri: vin oamenii de pe teren sa execute in practica schimbarile!

Primavara la Bucuresti

E asa de frumoasa! Imi amintesc cand am cunoscut-o prima data, tot frumoasa era.
La inceput, acum, la intoarcere, orasul mi s-a parut prafuit si murdar. Acum nu mi se mai pare. Dar cred ca e si din cauza oamenilor, de care mi-a fost tare dor.

S-asa-mi vine cateodat'

Mai dorule, s-asa-mi vine cateodat'... Inexplicabil, fredonez asta dupa ce am ascultat Dulce Pontes.
Adica vroiam sa zic ca-mi vine (cateodat') sa ma sui in avion ca sa dau "o tura" prin Romania, sa vad ce mai e! Dar cum biletele nu se pot cumpara asa, brusc, trebuie "sa-mi vina" programat. Hehehe!

Mi-e dor

De o Feteasca Neagra, cu Tudor pandindu-ma sa nu beau prea mult. Hm...

Un Cadillac care a facut istorie

Azi, la 22.31, ma simt profunda. Si scriu: Iulian a facut un site interesant, asa ca-l linkuiesc, si Irina mi-a trimis o chestie coola, in traditia de 1/zi.
Pe 5 martie, in 1658, s-a nascut A. de la Mothe Sieur de Cadillac, militar şi explorator francez, fondatorul oraşului Detroit (Michigan, SUA), dupa cum zice wiki. Numele suna cunoscut, caci asa se cheama masina 'ceea de care o sa-mi iau cand ma fac mare! A, si mai zice Irina ca tipul era pirat! Si din asta mi-ar placea sa ma fac cand oi fi mare.
Si mai am: nu l-o chemat asa de la inceput, inainte era Antoine Laumet, dar nu i-a placut cum suna! Cred. Foarte tare, oricum...

I'm neither modern, nor trendy

And I like this song because it reminds me of someone. A blond boy, with long hair. Never get to fall in love with him. He is just a good friend, in Timisoara.

La plaja

Da, ieri am fost la plaja. Am stat tolaniti pe nisip, sprijiniti in coate, la soare. Erau 26 grade. Need I say more? Minunat!

Un joculet

De cand nu m-am mai jucat... Ultima data ma jucam ceva cu un viermisor care citea si eu formam cuvinte (stiu, nimic distractiv, doar educativ). Si acum am dat peste acest joc superb la altcineva pe blog.
