I love it when people lecture me about how reading an actual book is so much better than reading an e-book. I don't disagree with the fact that the actual book is better. As a matter of fact, I love books. My whole life is linked to a book.  However, I've had a Kindle for a few years now and I love it. Working on cruise ships has made it quite hard to buy every book I want and carry it around, so having a bunch of books I could read during a five or six-month contract was a plus. Also, although Spanish is my first language, I just hate reading translations from books in either English or French; plus, I can't find the original in those languages available in my country; and if I do, it's way too expensive. 
 
So, yeah, I love it when they lecture me about it. I do think the smell and the feel of a book in your hands is priceless. I remember someone telling me once: 'you're not going to buy one more book until you've finished reading every book you already have in your library'. I actually did it. 
 
Still, it's just like, not enough.
 
So, when this happens, I just can't wait for people to finish so I can go back to my kindle and keep on being hooked by a lovely story I just can't put down.  Perhaps next time I'll find a book in the bookstore I just can't go home without...even if it's a translation.

Holidays cards are here with me YAY!

And I'm going to start writing down little messages and will send them out as soon as I can.

I'm actually so excited about doing this *.*

 "[…]And then one day the princess got tired of waiting. She took her dress by the hem, lifted it up enough so that she could go down the castle's stairs and walked away. 
 
She had finally realized, he was never going to arrive."

I feel so happy right now. Don't ask why, there are no special reasons for it, I just find myself very happy.

Things are not peachy, there are a lot of things that still need some changing, but I think that what needed to be changed inside of me is in its rightful place at the moment.

I am happy.

And it feels SO good.

Thank you, My Lady, for the road has been bumpy, but you've never given up on me and have never let go of me.  Blessed be.
ariadnem: (happy)
I have read what you write for me the past few days and I'm in love with them. I apologize for not having written before tonight, but life at sea has prevented me from doing it earlier.

Just wanted to say, once again, thank you.

xoxo,

:D

Thank you My Lady for such an amazing day.

Stupid, random, spamming comments like this are just making me feel more certain about my decision of not renewing my paid LJ account.

That is really helpful. It provided me a number of ideas and I'll be placing them on my web site eventually. I'm bookmarking your blog and I'll be back. Thanks again!



So many freaking comments in such a small amout of time. Is it a seasonal thing, maybe?

This has never happened on DW. Not once.

Grrrrrrrr

OMG!!

This year has sucked for me in terms of writing, but well, I know it's happened basically thanks to all the changes in my life. I haven't lost hope, though. I'll be boarding the Allure on Nov 12 (YAY!) and I'0m going to be working on my sesas while I'm there. Writing on the pc is a no no right now....so, I've been thinking about going back to the basics and write on a notebook so that my he-muse returns.

I actually think it's exciting to do it like that, weird, I know, but I'm looking forward to it. I can use one of the crew pcs once I'm on the ship and I'll be typying my heart away before the deadlines, so yeah...I think it's gonna work out ;)

Boy in the Closet

A woman takes a lover home during the day while her husband is at work. Her 9-year old son comes home unexpectedly, he sees them, and hides in the bedroom closet to watch. The woman’s husband also comes home.  She puts her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already.

 The little boy says, “Dark in here.”
 The man says, “Yes, it is.”
 Boy: “I have a baseball.”
 Man: “That’s nice.”
 Boy: “Want to buy it?”
 Man: “No, thanks.”
 Boy: “My Dad’s outside.”
 Man: “OK, how much?2
 Boy: “$250.”

 
In the next few weeks it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the closet together.
Boy: “Dark in here.”
Man: “Yes, it is.”
Boy: “I have a baseball glove.”
The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, “How much?”
Boy: “$750.”
Man: “Sold.”

 

A few days later the Dad says to the boy, “Grab your glove, let’s go outside and have a game of catch.”
The boy says, “I can’t, I sold my baseball and my glove.”
The Dad asks, “How much did you sell them for?”
Boy: “$1,000."

The Dad says, “That’s terrible to overcharge your friends like that...That is way more than those two things cost.  I’m taking you to church, to confession.”
They go to the church and the Dad makes the little boy sit in the confessional booth and closes the door.

The boy says, “Dark in here.”
The priest says, “Don’t start that shit again; you’re in my closet now.”

It's that time of the year when I'm supposed to pay for my paid time on LJ, however, I'm so tired of everything LJ has done for the past years that I decided not to renew it. I can't believe they're so narrow-minded that they have to wait for people to tell them what's wrong and still not listen.

I'm not closing my account, because it still keeps me in touch with people and friends and communities and stuff, but I'm not gonna keep on paying for a service that should be a lot better. I know I'm gonna miss my space in the scrapbook and the extra icons, but enough is enough.

We'll see if I change my mind in the future, although I seriously doubted.

I've officially signed up for this year's Make The Yuletide Gay Popslash Sesa.

I'm insane, not b/c of the challenge but over time and PC restraints...but I'll make it work out. I won't focus on silly stuff and I'll just think about writing something with the highest standards. Hopefully my Sesa will like it. I always have fun working on it, this year it'll be more awesome. I know.

So yeah, I'm in.

Sorry people, but I've been here and there working, working, working on the Caribbean, so forgive me. I had you in my mind and sent you all the best wishes on your bithdays, so, here they go:

Sarayhim, Hyocam, Muinteor, Moiralaquesis, and Pensnest.

Hope you guys have had an awesome time on your very special days.

*hugs*

Since I've barely logged in lately and LJ has worked for me, can anybody tell me what's happened with the service...again?

Found the info.

Thx!

Gah!

I had the most horrible migraine today. It was so horrible that I ended up crying and even got a shot and I slept all through the afternoon to let the medicine work.

I guess I won't be doing much tonight, since I can barely keep my head focused on one thing, not to mention I don't want to get the freaking migraine again.

Mmmm

One of the things I've learnt over the years is quilting and I've been thinking about going back to it. I've even told my sister I'm ready to learn how to use the sewing machine that's suitable for me (I can't use the industrial ones she does) and she said she'll teach me :D

So, I've been looking for patterns and stuff, and it's been a fun thing to do. 

I just hope I can actually manage to do it right again. It's been sooooo long since I last used a sweing.

It's midnight, I just got home from a friend's house and got online.  This is a meme as seen at [personal profile] pensnest in which you put your itunes in shuffle and answer some questions.
