Pink Martini reloaded

De data asta parca nu a mai fost chiar asa “ca la Ateneu” cum a fost data trecuta (Eugen crede ca a fost exact invers). Dar mi-a placut extrem. Am dansat in scaun, am aplaudat frenetic. Am ras la incercarile pianistului de a vorbi in romana. Mi-a placut surpriza cu Damian Draghici: au zis ca au un invitat special care sigur ne place si l-au chemat pe scena. Damian n-a zis nimic, a cantat la nai alaturi de ei, ca si cum era one of them. Erau relaxati pe scena, desi erau toti la costum. I just had a perfect evening, as an end to a hectic day.

PS – am muncit azi, de alegeri. Logic. Nu vreau sa vorbesc despre asta ca ma oboseste si mi se pare inutil. Prefer Pink Martini.

Pink Martini and a very busy weekend

It all started on Friday evening. I went out with a colleague for tea. I ended up in a bar, then in a club where I had the “misfortune” of having two shots of tequila. Home around 4. Next morning I was woken up by the phone, I was supposed to go to Sinaia for the wedding and I was kinda late, my friend Oana called to say she was waiting for me. I arrived at the station quite on time. Of course, I was on the train more time than I was in Sinaia, but I was there:) (pictures in a later post). Then, the Concert. I rarely had the occasion to see something so beautiful as the Pink Martini concert I was at. I mean… these guys are great! And I don’t know why, but in the end I felt like I went through my whole life with their songs. I remembered my trip to Italy (Una notte a Napoli), everything from my relationship with C (Sympathique, Brasil, Donde estas Yolanda…), he is after all the one to “blame” for my musical taste; and last, but not least, the present (Hang on Little Tomato). And for the first time in my life I regretted my Dad didn’t have the patience to properly teach me how to play the violin.
After PM, I went to a bar then to the same club as the other night.
Today I celebrated my brother’s birthday:). And his girlfriend’s too.
I can’t complain, I had quite a weekend which left me voiceless and a bit tired, but somehow ok with myself.

this, that (no other)


My mother says that the next will be great for me. She read this in a dime-a-dozen horoscope for 2008, knowing my hidden passion for this kind of things. Thing is everything referred to work, carrier, money. How about me? How about other things in my life? Hmmm, I guess it’s getting worse, right?
But I am quite looking forward for this weekend. Saturday is a busy day. I have to travel to Sinaia for Heta’s wedding. Then I come back in the evening for the Pink Martini concert. Then I believe I’m going out, that is in a club. Now that’s a good day.
I believe I wouldn’t have any reason to get bored. I have a pile of books on my desk, waiting for me to read them, I decided it’s about time to learn how to swim and, of course, besides looking for a house (which I only say I do, but I never actually do anything about it, it’s only an obsession), I might try taking up driving lessons again. This became a delicate subject in my mind, since I consider it a failure. My personal failure. And I am not at all used to failures.
So you see, I am a busy girl:). At least for a while.

yeah, right, October again


I guess I must find somewhere people I can hang out with every day. Because autumn makes me feel helpless and lonely, and I really hate going home after a long day of work. Now it’s a time to drink tea, talk to friends, in warm comfy places, away from the cold rain outside.
Anyway, October looks like a busy month. Not only that I celebrate my brother on this month (oh, yes, an his girlfriend), but my girl Heta is getting married and there is this Pink Martini concert I look forward to.
Yesterday we had Muse here. I didn’t go, everyone was saying that they are great, I was feeling weird I never listened to them before, but I decided not to go. I am not a hypocrite, I cannot go to a concert not knowing what it’s all about.
Now Chemical Brothers is somethin’ else. I’m going! On the 20th this month.
Gosh…. it would have been so great to have these guys here some years ago!
