What did I do today? Well, for one, I found the way to get into the office firewall and be able to use Messenger and AIM. Am quite happy about it, since I procrastinated a lot with Rina on IM, and gave her the link to the Very Secret Diaries. I'm slowly converting her to my dark, hobbit-fancier world. Bwahahaha.

I also found this HILARIOUS interview with the LotR cast. I loved the girl who made the interviews. She made Sean, Dominic and Billy act silly. Then, she made Orlando Bloom giggle. Sean Bean had this sex phone voice while smiling confused by it all, and Viggo laughed out loud. What's not to love?

I have to stay at the office until my boss finishes her reunion because she needs to talk to me after that. What time? I don't know. Should I waste company time? Hell YEAH.

I'm also extremely hungry. I fancy baby back ribs. I won't have them. Am sad.

Well, the Pervy Hobbit-Fancier store is up. I'm soooo fucked.


Well, turns out Ellie, my Blogger Insider mate, was out of town, not abducted. But now that I think about it, "out of town" is quite vague... maybe she was abducted after all. ;)

You can see her questionnaire answered here. Mine is here:

1.- Who's your Hollywood dreamdate?

Viggo Mortensen, please. If you can convince him I won't bore him and I won't drool that much, I will be happy just to follow him around like a lap dog. Going out for coffee and take pictures of our surroundings sounds like a nice idea.

2.- Are you going to see NSYNC on this tour?

I wish. I was going to visit my friends Rina and Kate in Chicago so we could all go together to the April 14th concert. But alas, my savings account is smaller than I thought, and I've had way too many medical expenses this year. Bummer.

3.- How many U2 albums do you own?

Currently, I own six. The Unforgettable Fire, Achtung Baby, Zooropa, Pop, The Best of 1980-1990 and All That You Can't Leave Behind. My ex-boyfriend inherited my Rattle and Hum and The Joshua Tree. On hindsight, it was a bad move to give him those records. ;)

4.- Who would you love to be back up singer for?

Ugh. What a difficult question. I would have to be with either with...

a) A rock group whose lead singer's voice reaches high registers. That way I can follow his lead and give all I have in my throat. I'd pick Bon Jovi or Aerosmith here.

b) A female singer with a soft voice. Why? The soft tone of her voice would allow me to harmonize along on the background, enhancing her voice. Probably Sarah McLachlan or Alicia Keys.

I've never thought about this, why do you ask? ;)

5.- What movie can you not live without?

Trainspotting. With LotR:FotR coming in a close second.

6.- How often do you blog?

I try to blog everyday, but on weekends it gets harder, because I am sitting in front of the computer all day long from Monday to Friday. I just want to rest on my weekends... ::sigh::

7.- What's your drink of choice?

Non-alcoholic: Water.

Alcoholic: Margarita.

8.- Do you have a hero?

Anyone who has the balls to have a dream and make it come true it's a hero in my book.

9.- What's your take on death?

Although I do believe we'll go to a better place than this, most of the times the transition is traumatic for everyone left behind. It's sudden and unfair, and always unexpected. I wish I could say I'm ready to face it, but I can't. I guess I keep myuself on denial until I can't cope with it anymore, which is my take for many things. And I'm more afraid of other people's death than my own.

10.- What's the best thing about your life now?

My friends.


Friday, February 22, 2002
From MSNBC's "Best Kisser in Hollywood" article:

"... The two (Sandra Bullock and Viggo Mortensen) co-starred in '28 Days,' and the insider says that Bullock told a colleague that she was so taken with Mortensen’s smooching skills, that she purposely kept flubbing up during a kissing scene so that the scene would have to be shot again and again and again."

Well, some people get all the luck, don't they?



1. Hey, baby, what's your sign? Do you think it fits you pretty well?

Cancer. And yes, it fits me pretty well. :)

2. What's the worst birthday gift you've ever received?

Hmmm. That's a hard one. Probably a record I already owned, or crappy fantasy jewelry from someone I don't rememeber.

3. What's the best birthday gift you've ever received?

A surprise party from my friends on my 16th birthday. ::sigh::

4. What's the best way you've celebrated your birthday thus far?

See above. <.g>

Actually, I don't like celebrating my birthday anymore. I just like to spend time with my family and friends -- if someone were to throw a party for me, I'd get royally pissed.

5. What are your plans for this weekend?

Well, tonight we're going to Chili's and sing "I want my baby back" 'NSYNC style. Well, we're going mostly for the margaritas, but you get my drift. <.g> If I'm healthy enough on Saturday morning, I'm gonna drop by the gym for a couple of hours. After that, lunch and a movie with friends. Sunday: peace and quiet in my comfy bed. ;)

People already have Pervy Hobbit-Fancier t-shirts! I WANT ONE! Especially after Cassie said there'll be a store up in a couple of days. Whee!!

: : miggie : : spoke @ 10:08 AM :*: ::


From Yahoo!News: 'NSYNC's Bass in Talks for Space Trip.

An excerpt: The boy band member is negotiating to travel on a Russian rocket for a mission in November, according to MirCorp, the Amsterdam-based space travel company.

Bass said in a statement Wednesday that he was "completely overwhelmed." "I'm looking forward to completing this lifelong dream," he said.

I don't know what to do. Should I groan? Should I say "you go, Lance!"? Is this a desperate plea for attention? Is Lance is not getting any? Inquiring minds want to know.

Predictably, the Yahoo! boards are having fun. This is my favorite message so far.

Also, to celebrate this milestone on Mr. Bass' life, MTV has a poll called "'NSYNC In Space: You Write The Headline". Which one's winning? "One Down, Four To Go." <.g>

Yay for superficial news! ;)

I LOVE these tests! <.giggle>

Who's your Fellowship fella?

Tall, dark, and RUGGEDLY handsome!

Aw, you go for the tall, dark and handsome type. How trite. True, Aragorn's as much a man as any of the Fellowship, but the whole "I'm not good enough to be king" thing really gets in the way of bedroom fun. Whining can be a real turn-off, you know.



Quickie: Today at work we're doing this English skills evaluation with Berlitz. I just came out of the lecture/redacting test, and am taking a 10-minute break to stretch my legs before I go to the oral skills one. Well, I just saw the guy in charge of the oral evaluations. He's Odin. He's a Nordic God. He's tall, blond and yummy. I'm having a giggle fit in here. Very teeny of me, but I can't help it. Is it stress, or am I just plain horny? HOW am I gonna do that evaluation now? Wish me luck. <.g>

Update, 11:12 am: ::sigh:: I am smitten. The guy was very, very nice and extremely cute, which made me really happy. And I was charming and funny. You can't ask me for more in my state of stress. Oh yeah, and I did great in the test. ;)


Thanks to my dear Rina, I did two new tests. And now that I know the results, I should have linked you to her posts, because we got the same answers. <.g>

I'm Frodo/Sam! What LoTR Ship Are You?

And here I was thinking I'd get Aragorn/Boromir. Hmmm...

Take the What

Work is driving me fucking nuts.

Today's Scullyfic topic is children's books. Sadly, I have a complete lack of knowledge on this subject, and it makes me feel kinda weird. I mean, I read almost everything that falls on my hands, but no kiddie books. I can't recommend you any if my life depended on it. I guess my kids are gonna read Little Red Hood, Cinderella, The Sleeping Beauty and the Encyclopaedia Britannica like I did. Oh, and Harry Potter, just because.


Did you know Amazon.com has a Wedding Registry? Wow. Who's gonna ask for a blender when you can ask for the First Season of Queer as Folk on DVD, for example?

When (and if) I get married, I'm SO gonna use Amazon for my wedding gifts. Because I will marry a geek like me, you know. And he'll appreciate my choice of store.

Come to think of it, I should buy a ring for Jeff Bezos and get done with it. <.g>


Whee! next week they'll have Moulin Rouge 2 out. :) I'm usually not fond of second soundtracks, but this movie needed another CD, if only to include Material Girl and The Show Must Go On. This is the track list:

1. Your Song - Instrumental
From the "Rehearsal Montage" scene

2. Sparkling Diamonds - Original Film Version
Performed by Nicole Kidman, Jim Broadbent, Caroline O’Connor, Natalie Mendoza and Lara Mulcahy

3. One Day I’ll Fly Away - Tony Phillips Remix
Performed by Nicole Kidman

4. The Pitch (Spectacular Spectacular) - Original Film Version
Performed by Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, Jim Broadbent, Jacek Koman, John Leguizamo, Garry MacDonald, Richard Roxburgh and Matthew Whittet

5. Come What May - Original Film Version
Performed by Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor

6. Like A Virgin - Original Film Version
Performed by Jim Broadbent, Richard Roxburgh and Anthony Weigh

7. Meet Me In The Red Room - Original Film Version
Performed by Amiel

8. Your Song - Instrumental
From the "After The Storm" scene

9. The Show Must Go On - Original Film Version
Performed by Nicole Kidman, Jim Broadbent and Anthony Weigh

10. Ascension/Nature Boy
From the "Death and Ascension" scene

11. Closing Credits: Bolero
Original Film Version

This is gonna be good. And while I'm at it, I should go and buy the first CD too. Because I have it on mp3. :P


I am deeply saddened. I finished "The Return of the King" last night, torn between finishing the story *and* not wanting that book to end. But since I had made my decision, I read the last 5 chapters and an appendix. Somehow it was how I thought it would end, but it was all so beautiful and so sad at the same time.

Will you laugh at me if I tell you I cried for two hours after I closed the book?

Kevin Smith, 1963 - 2002

I read and reread the news and I still can't believe it. This is so sad and unfair. :(

"Say my name, bitch! Say my name!"





Wheee! It's Friday Five time!

1. What was the first thing you ever cooked?

God, I don't remember. Everyone in my family is very passionate about food and about cooking. When I was very little and my mom had to go to work, she would leave me with grams. We would spend most of the time in the kitchen, and I was happy to help her with anything she wanted. Especially because she would feed me afterwards. <.g> But my garndma's forte have always been the sweets, so my first grand thing to cook was probably a cake.

2. What's your signature dish?

I don't have a signature dish per se, I just have things I love to cook. For example, I love to make huge, yummy breakfasts on weekends. I love making wild rice. I love making scallops with mushrooms. I LOVE making pizza.

Now I'm hungry. ;)

3. Ever had a cooking disaster? (tasted like crap, didn't work, etc.) Describe.

Well, I've had flat cakes, gummy paellas, burnt lambchops... however, there's one that still makes me mad. On that bright, sunny day I had this horrible craving for pizza. So I went to the store and bought everything to make the Mother of All Pizzas, because I was planning to get stuffed until I exploded. I bought the best tomatoes, the most exquisite mozzarella... you imagine the picture. The pizza smelled like heaven, and when I took it out of the oven, my dog barked loudly and unexpectedly, because our neighbors were arriving and he decided he didn't like the sound of their keys that day. So, startled, I dropped the pizza.

Not only it landed upside down on the floor, but... oh. My dog was coming to eat the mozzarella!

I screamed, I cried, I pounded my fists on the walls, I kicked the oven and hurt my toe. If I didn't, I was gonna skin that fucking dog alive and kick him out of the window, and I live in the 14th floor. And I threw the pizza away, because if I wasn't eating the pizza, neither was he. FYI, I still have the dog. I love him. But he only had puppy chow to eat for two weeks after that.

4. If skill and money were no object, what would make for your dream meal?

Flavors From The East. Cantonese, Thai, Chinese, Japanese... you name it. I would be the Iron Chef, dude.

5. What are you doing this weekend?

Tomorrow's my Mom's birthday, and she'll blow the candles on a delicious cake from this French pastry place. I still haven't decided -- an Opera cake with nuts or an Oreo Mousse? Hmm. Decisions, decisions.

Oh yeah, Happy Valentine's Day everyone!


Wednesday, February 13, 2002
Because I want to throw myself into oblivion, I am stealing this survey from somewhere else. I honestly forgot where. I pasted it on my notepad without the reference blog... ah, well, you don't care.

Categorize Your Fandom Men In Three Categories:

1.- Sexiest: The one that makes you fan yourself, giggle, and say "what a man!"
2.- The Knight: The fairy-tale prince type who makes you sigh because men in the real world aren't like that.
3.- The One I'd Most Likely End Up With: Judging from past and present relationships, who's the most realistic guy for you.

So, let's split the answers in three fandoms: X-Files, Harry Potter and LotR, k?


1.- Sexiest: Krycek. Meow. I can even find naughty uses for the prostethic arm. <.g>
2.- The Knight: Mulder. No way he's that fucked up and that beautiful and that smart and that witty. He's so imperfect, he's perfect.
3.- The One I'd Most Likely End Up With: Probably Pendrell, if he'd been willing to get through his Scully!crush and if they hadn't killed him in Season 4. Bastard.

Harry Potter

1.- Sexiest: Professor Lupin. He's smart, witty and dark. Aw, yeah.
2.- The Knight: Harry. D'uh.
3.- The One I'd Most Likely End Up With: Although I wanna say Fred, I know it would be Ron. I'm a grown-up Hermione, and everybody knows we're meant to be together. <.g> [Hey, I'm noticing a pattern with redheads here.]

Lord Of The Rings

1.- Sexiest: Aragorn, bar none. He's mysterious, strong, fierce, passionate, loyal, protective, sensitive, and he has this... air of superiority. And I mean that in a noble way. And oh yeah, he's damn hot. Even if you haven't seen the movie, you read him and you know he has to be a beautiful man.
2.- The Knight: Sam. Yeah, Sam. Even more than Frodo. Because he loves beyond cognition, and is able to risk everything in name of that love. Because he's more deep and complex than meets the eye. That gives him extra points in my book.
3.- The One I'd Most Likely End Up With: God, I don't know. Probably Boromir, who's loyal, noble and beautiful, but with a human side. Simple and complex. That's my man.

Now you do it and tell me. <.g>


Fuck Barry Manilow, This Is News: Venezuela's Currency Plunges

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuela's currency plunged more than 20 percent against the U.S. dollar Wednesday after the government abandoned exchange controls to try to stem capital flight and restore investor confidence in the ailing economy.

The bolivar, which closed at 792 to the U.S. dollar on Friday, was trading at 990 by midday. Economists long have maintained that the bolivar was overvalued by as much as 30 percent against the dollar.

That's right. As of right now, 2:45 pm, the price is Bs. 1050 per buck. It's only 258 Bs. away from doubling the price it had on Friday. People is going crazy buying dollars everywhere. This, of course, pushes the price forward. Not a pretty sight, I can tell you. Especially because if the price keeps going up, I'll be soon earning half of what I used to last week. Which wasn't much to start with. Ha! Isn't that GREAT news?!?

How I LOVE my damn government. Great timing, you fuckers.

I'll go now and sink into the depths of my newfound poverty, thank you.


A Sure Sign That The World Is Ending:

Manilow Inducted Into Hall of Fame.

NEW YORK (AP) - Barry Manilow writes the songs that make the whole world sing, and now those songs have earned him a spot in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

I've been rendered speechless.

Oh, look at that. New Viggo interview here, via TheOneRing.net. Just a thought, Kathleen Manrel: if you've interviewed the man, couldn't you at least write his fucking name right on the article title? Jeez. ::rolls eyes::
: : miggie : : spoke @ 10:59 AM :*: ::


Good, good day so far. Woke up to see the Oscar nominations live, and I actualy shrieked when they mentioned Sir Ian McKellen's name for Supporting Actor. Wheeee! I'm so excited he's nominated. He SO deserved it. There were a couple nice surprises too, with Halle Berry and Renée Zellweger nominated for Best Actress, and Will Smith and Denzel Washington for Best Actor. What I did find disappointing was that the David Lynch stole a very well deserved Baz Luhrman's nomination as Best Director. Bastards. And where was the Ewan McGregor nomination, huh? He was in the movie, too.

Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring got 13 nominations, while Moulin Rouge and A Beautiful Mind grabbed 8 nods each, including Best Movie. And what's with Harry Potter only getting 3? Ah well. Can't please everybody. Although it's obvious Sissy Spacek's gonna win Best Acress, I'd love to see Nicole Kidman grabbing an Oscar, and blowing raspberries to Tom Cruise in the acceptance speech. Hee.

On a funny note, Marisa Tomei is nominated this year, too. You know who'll win if Jack Palance shows up. <.g>

Must contact Melissa for our yearly Oscar predictions. I've been kicking her ass for five years straight, yet we keep on doing this. I guess It's still fun for her. ;)

Ooooh... figure skating on TV. My favorite part of the Winter Olympics. But I must move this party to the kitchen, because I have to make lunch, even if I want that grilled cheese sandwich this badly.

: : miggie : : spoke @ 10:50 AM :*: ::


Monday, February 11, 2002
I'm still in my pj's, and I have a smear of pizza sauce on my chest -- these are the joys of having two days off. I've been sleeping like a log. I've been watching TV! I had not watched this much TV in a long time. I'm such a couch potato. The Oscar nominations are tomorrow and I'll watch that shit live, finally. Nothing like waking up early in the morning to watch vain TV. ::happy sigh::

Three things.

1) Happy Birthday, Carolyn! Have a fantastic day. :)

2) {{HUGS}} to Rina.

3) I've tried not to, but I'm on the verge of giving up. I give myself three days to buy the damned Arwen pendant. I hate myself.

Oh yeah, my Blogger Insider Mate hasn't updated her blog since January 26. I have nothing to ask her, except what are her favorite Bono sunglasses. Should I worry?


Friday, February 08, 2002
What the fuck is this??

Where is this image from? Why is Sean Bean holding those flowers? Why is he naked? Are his legs shaved? And is that a tattoo of a penis with a face on his pelvis?

I'm severely disturbed.

: : miggie : : spoke @ 10:01 PM :*: ::


In the spirit of Cassie Claire's diaries, an image.

Sam looks like he really will kill Aragorn if he tries anything. <.g>


Because it's better late than never, here's today's Frisky Friday Five:


1. What's the most romantic thing you've ever done for someone else?

Well, I once sent roses to a guy -- I was proud of myself. But the one I really did like was the one and only declaration of love I've ever made. It was quit dramatic, at night, under the rain, when I was so angry I couldn't see straight. I said something like, "I love you, asshole!"

I'm not really good with the romantic stuff. ::sigh::

2. [pardon the cosmo question] What are your erogenous zones?

My neck, behind my ears, my inner thighs. And my ears, come to think of it. Speak to me, baby. Aw yeah.

3. How old were you the first time you had sex? Care to expound?

21. Rob. Perfect.

4. What's the most unusual place you've ever had sex?

Office, at night, with people in the office next door. I wish I had a wilder answer, though. <.g>

5. Do you have plans for Valentine's Day or is it just another Thursday?

Oh, I have plans! I'm going to the dentist so she can continue to work on this lovely root canal thing on my tooth.


Don't work. Bad, bad thing. Keeps you busy and pulling out your hair in stress. Can you believe I must have sent like 40 e-mails yesterday? Each and every one work-related? And it's not as if I was forwarding stuff, I had to be charming and corporate to send them. Ugh. But then, it pays. Not that much, but at least you can manage to keep the credit card lawyers off your back for a couple weeks. ;)

Thank goodness I won't have to come Monday and Tuesday because of Carnival. Oh yeah. I plan to catch up on my movies. There's Serendipity, Zoolander, Training Day and Black Hawk Down to watch. Hee! At least I had my 4th LotR viewing last night. Aw man, the fun I had thinking of Cassie's Secret Diaries. And having read The Two Towers made me appreciate Boromir muchly. Not to mention Sam. I loved them before, of course, but now they had more depth. And yes, there was bawl-o-rama last night at the end of the movie. Unbelievable. Four times. FOUR times and we still cry. We're such geeks. And then, the credits roll, and you have Enya singing "May It Be," with this heavenly voice. She's an elf, my God. So we cried some more. <.g>

And I bought the soundtrack today. Yeheheah. And Robbie Williams' "Swing When You're Winning," and Garbage's "Garbage." I was thiclose to buy Westlife, but I didn't. So sue me. Oh, oh, and I got my Caracas Pop Festival ticket! I'm going to see Alanis, No Doubt and La Ley in a month. Coolness.


Wednesday, February 06, 2002
One more post before our ISP dies for two hours:

"De tanto andar una región que no figuraba en los libros, me acostumbré a las tierras tercas en que nadie me preguntaba si me gustaban las lechugas o si prefería la menta que devoran los elefantes. Y de tanto no responder, tengo el corazón amarillo."

The song/poem is "Otro/Letter From Nebraska." The performer, Mr. Mortensen himself, speaks Spanish fluently. His pronunciation is so impeccable it makes me weep. Is there something he can't do? Damn.

: : miggie : : spoke @ 11:09 AM :*: ::


It's Man In The Picture time, because I feel like procrastinating, and am too angsty to write things that have nothing to do with darkness, sadness or loud screeching noises.

The man in this picture has the longest ear hair in the world. Isn't that something to be proud of? I think it is.

The man in this picture looks healthy.

The man in this picture has this post-coital glow that makes me wonder if he didn't pull an AngelinaBillyBob before showing up to that place.

The man in this picture feels a little choked up. The other is kinda happy.

The man in this picture is wiping his ass on the doorway. I think. Then some weird shit happened, if you pardon my pun.

Finally, the man in this picture is disturbingly cute.



Dominic and Viggo love each other

Is it wrong that I'm moderately aroused by this?


Tuesday, February 05, 2002
Bwahaha. I really don't remember how I got there, but believe me when I tell you you'll never find a spy report like this one, Following The Chaps Man.


This made my day:

Daria is the poster child for "teen misfit," and holds in high contempt what she sees as the shallowness and superficiality of the world around her. She is also cynical -- though she'd say she's "realistic" -- and mistrustful of authority, and doesn't hesitate to make her opinions known when she sees fit. She has a talent for writing, a sharp intellect, an even sharper tongue (her sarcasm could cut tempered steel), and a wit so dry it makes the Sahara look like a rain forest.


It's really bad when you've had an awful sleep the night before. I fell asleep reading, and when I woke up at 3 am, lights on and drool over the book, I was pissed off. Not only because I didn't finish the chapter I was on, but because on top of that, I dreamt with this faceless guy that told me the problem with smart, witty women like me was that we always said what we thought, but never said what we feel. Asshole.

I also have a dentist appointment today at 10:30 I'm not looking forward to, because I may have to stay home for the rest of the day. Which wouldn't be a bad thing if I didn't have so much work to do. This morning at 6:55 am I opened this e-mail from our Norway headquearters that said I had to send a presentation ASAP to them today, because they have a Venezuelan business commitive there tomorrow, and they need it with urgency. Oh, the joys of deadlines.

In happier news, I found LotR: TTT images on FantasyPlanet, and I must say that I can't wait to see Éomer take off that helmet. Hee. I also found a great (and funny!) Legolas article by Michael Martínez here. Orlando Bloom fans may want to check that one out, because it has a couple fanmail addresses. Because, let's not fool ourselves, we all know hordes of Mr. Bloom's fans stop here everyday.

I also got in the mail my Blogger Insider mate, who couldn't be more perfect. Go meet Ellie. Or not. I don't wanna be pushy.

Last, but not least: I fucking love ToeTag. Where does he find all these cool toys, huh?

"Your Honor, I already did the, like, oath thing over the Bible, and I swear that me taping *NSYNC for, like, 17 minutes with my own camera was a mere coincidence. I was, like, really there, you know?"

Bid away, my lovely stalkers.


More tests! I need to get a life. Ugh.

oh baby, baby

miggie, your inner rock star is Britney Spears!

Feel it, sweetheart; the rock star in you is all Britney -- the envy of cheerleaders everywhere. One part girl next door, one part naughty sex kitten, you're definitely not as innocent as you look. And that is why nobody can get enough of you. You are the ultimate American girl with some serious staying power. Unlike other success stories, you and Britney are more than just a pretty face: you've got talent, confidence, and the brains to back it up. With a talent list like yours it's no wonder you're at the top of the popularity charts and young men's hearts. We love you. Shout out your inner Britney!

Who's Your Inner Rock Star?


Yay! Cassie Claire has a new post: The Secret Diary of Gollum. Heh. :)
: : miggie : : spoke @ 12:57 PM :*: ::


Following the pack, here I start the week with test results to freak me out:

say yes=

Miggie, you're the "Say Yes" candy heart!

Is it that surprising your candy heart implores you to "Say Yes"? Well it shouldn't if it's just mimicking what your true heart wants to say. Whether you're with your soul mate or still trying to find them, you're beyond flitting from date to date. You're ready for it all, the commitment of a lifetime, the white picket fence and the matching "his" and "hers" slippers.

Well, maybe not the slippers. But surprise you with a getaway trip to Paris, Ireland, the Southwest, and your partner can lock you in for good. And if you're still looking, remember this: The best ones are always in the least likely places.

Watch out, the chemistry between you two might start a chain reaction that could result in a far more serious question asked of you. But you know what to say...

Take the Which Candy Heart Are You? Quiz.

A little vintage Viggo to make myself giddy.



Maigua has me worried today. Not only she's in the worst mood since this morning and has been ignoring and mistreating Raquel (with no intention, I'm sure), but she also had an, um, episode at lunch, where she started to cry uncontrollably after teasing Raquel for this chocolate cake she had bought for her and me. She asked her why didn't she bought her any, and Raquel told her that it was because she loved me more. Bawling started, never ending. Noby knows the why of her reaction. A while back Rosa Mary asked her why she reacted that way, and she started crying again. So, we don't know what's wrong with her. Problems at home? At work? Argh! I want to help her, but if she's not ready to speak her mind yet, the only solution is to wait. I just hope she feels better for tonight. I'm sad to see her like that. :'(

And I just ran into her... she had the growl face on. Full force.

I'm outta here -- Almost Famous at 4:30.


I had a weird dream last night.

I was in some sort of class in this ancient place, maybe an old palace, that was beautiful and eerie. I remember knowing everyone, having friends in this class, and having a monstruous crush on the professor. I remember him on the dream and my knees get weak and everything. Go figure. I remember him having long hair, with a scruffy 3-day-old beard, but he had this intense look, almost haunting. He would look at you and almost pierce you with his eyes. And there was something about the sound of his voice that gave me chills. All this was a Good Thing, of course.

I really can't remember what the class was about, but he was walking us through rooms and corridors, telling us stories about this beautiful place. He really had a way with words, as if he had lived all the things he was talking about. I was in this constant awe, paying attention to every little thing he said. Did I mention he somehow knew I had a crush on him? And it's not as if he could't have done something about it because I wasn't 15 years old in the dream, I was quite grown up, thank you. And he wasn't an pervy old man, he was a nice thirty-something guy in the full bloom of his manhood (tm Mulder). Maybe he didn't like me. Whatever. But I digress.

Other thing was timespan. I don't know what year it was or where we were, but our professor (whose name I can't recall) was dressed all Aragorn-ish. With some sort of cape. Black. I don'r remember what was I wearing, because I wasn't aware of my clothes in the dream. But I do remember I had leather on. And pants.

The thing is, weeks pass, and one day he tells us he has to go to Sweden. Why Sweden of all places? Beats me. Of course, as I always react in these situations, I get depressed and in denial. Because, you know, I never got to tell him how I felt about him and everything. So I'm wearing this emotional burden until the day comes: the man is leaving. A few of us want to bid him farewell, and we're in this... airport? Bus station? I have no idea. But he's wearing a green t-shirt. He says his goodbyes to all of us, thanking us for being there and all. Then, he's in front of me and I wanna cry. He lets go of his luggage and holds me tight. Really, really tight. There's so much feeling and power into that hug, I'm somewhat shocked by it. Then, I give in and hug him back as hard as I can, not wanting to let go of him, in more ways than one. When we finally break apart and I've cried the Hudson on his shoulder, he gives me a small note, cups my cheek with his hand and goes away.

I open the little piece of paper, that says: "Believe when someone says you're special. Believe when someone says I love you. Believe when someone says you've changed his life with your existence. Believe you're more precious than you'll ever know. Believe when someone says your smile has the power to warm the coldest heart.

Thank you."

I just sit down, astonished by those words.

And that's the last thing I remember before System of a Down woke me up this morning at 5:55 am. Argh.


I've always hated Rubik's Cube, because I'm stupid and impatient and have never solved the damned thing. When I was younger, I used to peel off the stickers in order to achieve some kind of pathetic, frustrated victory. I've never picked up one of those damned things again. And now I find this. Ew, ew, EW!

1. Have you ever had braces? Any other teeth trauma?

Nope, no braces for me or any other teeth trauma, unless you count my visit to the dentist early this week due to the most awful toothache.

2. Ever broken any bones?

I'm glad to announce my bones are fine, thank you.

3. Ever had stitches?

Eeeh. No. I guess my natural aversion to blood has kept me from hurting myself so far. <.g>

4. What are the stories behind some of your [physical] scars?

I have a couple scars on my knees, mostly from the junior school's playground. I used to fall on my knees a lot. :)

5. How do you plan to spend your weekend?

I plan on going to the gym tomorrow morning for an extra powerbike class, but that will depend on the amount of alcohol consumed tonight. Also, I plan to watch with some friends "La Comunidad," a 2001 Spanish film that's supposed to be quite good. On sunday, some rest, some sleep, some couch-potato-ing.
