Despre ziua mea

In ultimii ani mi-am ocarat ziua de nastere ceva de speriat. Aveam tot felul de argumente, de la “primesc un singur cadou, si de Craciun si de ziua mea” la “nu pot face petrecere ca nu vine nimeni” sau “nu-si aminteste nimeni de ea ca sunt toti cu capul in brad sau in cozonaci”. Si am ramas cu argumentele astea desi de facto situatia se schimbase dramatic.

De cand cu Facebook, toata lumea isi aminteste de ziua mea. Desigur, acea prietena care uita de ziua mea acum 8 ani, si acum face la fel, pentru ca probabil nu intra pe Facebook pe 24, in Ajun, ca sa-si aminteasca. Dar in rest, ziua mea a devenit o zi in care raspund mesajelor venite pe toate canalele si ma gandesc serios sa angajez un call center pentru asta 😛 :)).

Cat despre cadouri, de la ai mei in continuare primesc unul singur, insa mai sunt prieteni care imi dau doua, ca m-au tot auzit bitching around about this. Dar cred ca acum nu-mi mai pasa prea mult cate primesc. Ma bucur de ele, cate sunt, si cam atat. Imi place, in schimb sa fac cadouri de ziua mea, mi-am dat seama ca de fapt asta e tot scopul zilei asteia, ca d-aia m-am nascut eu in Ajun, ca uite ce frumos e sa dai. Si e adevarat, imi da o satisfactie mult mai mare procesul de detectare a cadoului potrivit si reactia omului cand il deschide.

Iar la capitolul petreceri, de ziua mea oamenii reusesc cumva sa se adune unii cu altii, in diverse combinatii, asa ca as putea spune ca oricum parte de un fel de petrecere tot am, chiar si fara sa ma stradui prea tare.

Deci gata, s-a schimbat feng-shuiu’. Ziua mea e misto. Si de fapt, chiar mi se pare fain ca am venit pe lume in momentul asta, poate ca Universul a incercat de la inceput sa-mi spuna ceva, iar eu abia acum incep sa pricep care-i faza :).

My New Age self

am dat peste o pagina pe net care imi spune tot felul de nazbatii despre ziua mea de nastere. De la zodiacul mayas, la cel egiptean, la ce piatra mi se potriveste si cu ce numar ar trebui sa ma cuplez, toate astea le-am aflat de AICI.

Si iata ce se spune despre mine :))

It finally snows

Oricat de mult as uri frigul, nu ma pot abtine sa nu ma bucur atunci cand ninge. As fi vrut chiar sa ninga si mai puternic, cu fulgi mai mari, sa simtim si noi ca e iarna. Adica daca e bal, pai bal sa fie. Daca e iarna, gimme some snow!

I other news, miercurea trecuta am cantat cu Lamaie la Netcamp Party. Poze vedeti la Simona. Am incercat sa ma ridic la inaltimea asteptarilor partenerei mele care a facut senzatie cand a cantat singura “Nothing compares to you”. Din nefericire, oricat mi-as dori eu si oricat as vrea, apparently am o voce varza. Well, but my Eugene a salvat situatia cu “Born to be wild” si apoi cu “Dragostea din tei”, ca sa incheiem apoteotic, cu Piticu si Lamaie langa noi, cu “Dragoste la prima vedere”. So it was fun:).

In afara de asta, pentru mine a inceput oficial sezonul petrecerilor de orice fel. A fost cea de 1 Decembrie, apoi vor urma cateva de Craciun, apoi vine ziua mea, apoi Revelion:). Asa ca am agenda plina, sa stiti:P. Cu toate astea tot stau si cantaresc daca sa mai stresez oamenii cu “ziua mea” anul asta. Nu a fost un an prea vesel nici prea usor. Nu prea imi dau seama daca e cazul sa ma bucur ca a trecut sau sa fiu in garda pentru unul si mai si. So we’ll see:).

Acum va las cu Dylan. Bob Dylan. Am ascultat melodia asta prima data la prietenii de la Wetpaper. Si mi-a placut:)

Miruna, 30 and fabulous:P

Bratu a facut 30 pe 30. Joe a facut 30 pe 15. eCostin a facut 30 pe 31. IO fac 30 azi. pe 24. Ca nime-n drum asa. Deloc nu-mi iese cu numerele astea, damn!

Dar, da Costine, la 30 viata e la fel ca inainte:). Eu nu pot sa ma plang deloc. Am inceput sa petrec de ziua mea acum 4 zile and presents keep coming:)). Ieri am fost un pic down, mi se inecasera toate corabiile si nu gaseam cu nici un chip vin de Porto. Dar cand ma trezesc de ziua mea in plin rasfatz, iar afara e soare si frumos, cum naiba sa fiu suparata?

Brad de Craciun – facut
Cadouri – avem
Ascultat muzica specifica – nu inca dar mama se va ocupa de asta

Asa ca va pup, darlings. Starea de azi e mai jos. O sa ziceti ca e cam exagerat. Nu e.

Ce vreau de ziua mea

Mai intai, sa dau o dezmintire: FAC ceva de ziua mea. Sa vedem cine apuca sa vina, insa pana la urma am zis ca nu poate sa treaca acest eveniment asa de important fara sa fie marcat in mod traditional prin valuri de alcool si inecat in fum de tigara.

Acum sa va dau lista cu ce-mi doresc de ziua mea si sa nu va mai aud ca ma intrebati:

– o poseta mare (poate sa aiba forma asta sau asta)

– o caciula ruseasca (fix ca asta)

– ochelari de ski/manusi de ski:P (avand in vedere ca ma duc la ski, desi n-am idee cum o sa ma descurc acolo pentru ca eu nu stiu sa schiez).

– sau niste manusi d-alea pana la cot tricotate

– niste urechi

– pentru colegi:)) – sa nu va bateti capul prea tare, magazinul de peste drum e plin de jucarii. Doua d-alea mai colorate si care tipa mai tare will do for me:P.

cam atat.. cred;)).

Am decis sa nu fac nimic….

…. de ziua mea. Dupa ce am stresat pe toata lumea around me cu problema “eu ce fac de ziua mea??”, in aceasta dimineata am decis sa nu fac nimic. Nici n-as sti cand pentru ca toata lumea are cate o problema cu ziua.

In plus, nu mai am energia de anul trecut, nici chef… deh, varsta:) (jur ca acum ii aud pe Costin si Robi rostind in cor “mamaiiiiiitzaaaa”). Simt eu ca cei 30 de ani ai mei ii voi petrece very quietly. Colac peste pupaza (rusine, rusine!), suntem in plina criza, daca ma intreaba cineva “pe tine cum te afecteaza recesiunea?” as zice uite, nu fac party de ziua mea:).

Totusi trebuie sa recunosc ca starea asta de Craciun incepe sa ma prinda. Am luptat din rasputeri impotriva ei. Conflictul cu “starea de Craciun” e vechi si porneste de la faptul ca it’s all about Christmas, it’s not about me. Au fost momente cand am zis ca e frumos sa-mi petrec ziua pe timp de sarbatoare, oricum toata lumea petrece, numa’ bine petrece si de ziua mea. Dar au fost momente cand am urat-o, mai ales ca, din cauza cozonacilor si a sarmalelor, unele doamne din anturajul meu uitara de mine. Dar nu pot sa ma lupt cu Craciunul, nu-i asa?

Asa ca, pana la urma, intr-una din diminetile astea mi-am zis what the heeell, oricum o sa cedez mai devreme sau mai tarziu. Asa ca acum o las sa vina peste mine cu toate melodiile de Craciun, mai ales aia a lu’ George Michael cu “last christmas”, toate glumitele de Craciun, toate pozele de sezon, toate stirile din lume si din RO despre asta. Nu ma vor uza prea mult pentru ca le stiu pe de rost pe toate, le scot doar din sertaras si le bag la inaintare.

Zic ca ar fi util un club al celor nascuti de Craciun (24, 25 si chiar 26). Sa avem unde sa impartasim toate problemele zilei noastre de nastere. Si poate sa ne reunim la o petrecere de ziua noastra, nu de Craciun! Un fel de Festivus for the rest of us:)).

Karaoke night!

I am having a very busy week. But once the month of December starts, it’s party time for me! And I start with the 1st of December, this Saturday, huge party:). Then, on Sunday, the bloggers from Bucharest organize a karaoke night out! And ya people all must know that my hidden fantasy is to sing at karaoke. This is why I even put my name on the list, downloaded the list of songs.. stuff like that. I’m taking it all very seriously, it’s my one-time chance to sing in front of a bunch of drunk people, me being quite dizzy as well:). I guess I’ll have some proof for that, I have people with cameras around me every day:).
After that it’s Joe’s birthday! After that, it’s my birthday that I’ll be celebrating twice this year: with friends and in Barcelona:). So… my wonderful December is about to start and I can’t wait for it to begin.

P.S. – My brother’s wedding will be on the 29th of June 2008. Can’t believe he’s getting married. (that is… my YOUNGER brother)

My mother’s birthday

Today is my mother’s birthday. It is also her 2 years older sister’s birthday. But, in the same day that my mother is celebrating her 60th anniversary, some other famous people celebrate their birthdays as well. People like Sharon Stone, Neneh Cherry, Chuck Norris, ….and last, but not least, ladies and gentlemen, Osama Bin Laden! :))). I couldn’t believe it when I heard it on the news today… I wouldn’t have made a difference perhaps, but I am a horoscopes/astrology/coincidences freak, so I am entitled to be surprised because of this detail.
Thing is I am really happy for my mom, her life is for the better I guess, because she turned 60 and on that very day she celebrates her birthday in Venice, Italy. It was her dream to go to Venice at least once in her life, and so she did. In the meanwhile, I’ve been having a tough week, I had no time for nothing so I quit carrying for anything, even for myself. I have to give up the English lessons because it’s eating too much of my time. Theoretically, I should be fine, but there’s always something else, a lesson, a document to translate, something…. And so I come home exhausted and I go to work again…not funny at all. So now I am going TO SLEEP.
