Yesterday was a long day with accidents and mistakes but also some luck. Tomorrow I’ll find if it was good luck or… misleading luck. :P
Sometimes is getting late very-very quickly…
Since I came to US I shot 38 rolls of film.
Whisper of the Heart
In ’95 I was 16. I remembered this because tonight I watched Whisper of the Heart, a movie about a boy that wants to become a violin maker, a girl that wants to become a writer, and a cat. :-) Seiji: “Does it sound corny?” Shizuku: “It’a a little corny, but you’re a violin maker, not a writer.” Seiji: “That’s true. This is great!” Shizuku: “Come here. It’s getting cold.” It’s...
Exercitziu de aberatzie
Am ajuns din intamplare la un articol al carui subiect pricipal este… branza. Un minunat exercitziul de aberatzie se gaseste la comentarii la numarul 58 care zice cam asha: 58. Discriminarea cardiacilor de catre tarani… europeanul otravit (18 ian 2007 0:51) Am o mostenire genetica foarte neplacuta: un sistem vascular slab, cu predispozitie la accidente vasculare si incerc sa-mi...
I hate Textpattern! With a huge amount of pain and some manual SQL I managed to finish adding pictures to the post about the Zhou Yu’s Train. I have no idea what was wrong but I know that I’ll have to go ahead in write a small blog script based on plain text files to avoid further problems. :| PS: If I could have easily edit the above mentioned post I would have added the link to all the...
Smiling is not my strongest point so I guess I’ll have to try with the roses. :P
A mask from two days ago:
Now I’m very-very tired…
An interesting perspective on research: What is research but a blind date with knowledge? — Will Harvey
An interesting perspective on calories (from Puppy, or course :P): A gourmet who thinks of calories is like a tart that looks at her watch. — James Beard
Another quote from Puppy: Virtue would go far if vanity did not keep it company. — La Rochefoucauld I wonder if this is as true today as it was in the 17th century…
Grass is growing so fast! Here are two pictures taken one day apart:
Today, from Pupy: You go slow, be gentle. It’s no one-way street — you know how you feel and that’s all. It’s how the girl feels too. Don’t press. If the girl feels anything for you at all, you’ll know. — Kirk, “Charlie X”, stardate 1535.8 I get the “go slow, be gentle” part. I also get the “you know how you feel” and if I’m trully in a happy mood I’ll even buy the “it’s how the...
This evening I watched the MacWorld 2007 Keynote. I didn’t plan to do it but I had to wait for Raluca and the presentation fit quite nicely in the amount of time I had to fill. Here are some thoughts about it. I’m not writing them because they are extraordinary but because I might want to remember them some time later. I don’t have a TV and I don’t plan to have one in the foreseeable future,...
It's here, it's here!
My new MacBook is here! :P In fact I got it yesterday in the late afternoon. The FedEx tracking said it was delivered in the morning but I think they left at the security desk (this never happened before :|) and it took some time for someone to bring it upstairs. The machine is nice looking and is very speed. During the initial configuration steps I said, for the first time, that I want to...
It would have been so smart to place the ‘0’—‘9’ exactly before ‘A’—‘Z’ (or ‘a’—z’) in the ASCII encoding…
Today is a nice and warm outside and I just remembered about the wonderful movie called La vita è bella. A very nice quote from there is this one: Buon giorno, Principessa!
I just watched Lilya 4-ever. I don’t remember when I first heard about it but the name was familiar to me for some time. The movie talks about some of the most sad and dark corners of the world we live, things that we don’t want to be true even if sometime they are. It brought tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart…
Another interesting quote from Puppy: The world is full of people who have never, since childhood, met an open doorway with an open mind. — E.B. White
This one is from the bottom of a Slashdot article: Jealousy is all the fun you think they have.
Suzhou River is a Chinese movie that I watched recently. It’s a low budget movie that talks about the bleak life in Shanghai, along the river called Suzhou. The whole movie has a very strong documenary feeling. I actually liked it but not enough to encourage anyone else to see it. :P I think it’s a little to rough for most of the tastes. Now, the reason I’m writing about this is that my new...
