Batman Returns - (H)ELLO (T)HERE

New Year's ReVolution

A couple of weeks ago I got asked about my New Year's Resolutions and I really couldn't come up with anything smart. I mean, now that I even (finally!) got my driving licence - which had been in my New Year's Resolutions list for like 5 years - I was out of ideas.
Then, days after (basically today), I started doing some serious thinking about my life right now and I realized that there are many things that need fixing.

In no particular order:

- Clean my room before unknown weird animals will come out of it and eat me while I sleep (and possibly keep it tidy and/or clean it more often when it needs it).
- Find a new job.
- Update my LJ more often.
- Fix the website and update it more often.
- Get organized.
- Renew my passport.
- Be a better friend.
- Sleep more.
- Learn something new.
- Finish the painting(s) I'm working on.
- Stop falling in love with the wong people.
- Stop thinking about that one person who stole my heart ('cause it's just not getting me anywhere).
- Stop feeling hurt whenever that one person don't reply the way I espect her to reply ('cause, seriously, no wound and no blood: no need to feel so much pain).
- Stop punching walls whenever I feel hurt and wanna break something ('cause, if you really wanna break something, a wall it's not gonna do it).
- Stop sending SMS to that one person 'cause they all go ignored and that's not cool.

These could change, especially the last ones, 'cause I'm pretty pessimist today and feel like nothing can go the way I hope.
Well, I should manage to come up with more resolutions, 'cause I want a 2009 full of... life.

Trouble with dreams is they don't come true...

Dear LJ, yes, I am still alive.
Sooner or later I should be able to catch up on those 500 posts I haven't read... *head meets keyboard*
Sometimes a day with only 24 hours doesn't seem to be enough anymore.

I want my uncomplicated life back.
Or not.

Here is fruit for the crows to pluck

Dinner with my co-workers and Brazilian party didn't go as bad as I thought it would. Clearly I wasn't dressed to kill - I just can't pull it off - but nobody really seemed to pay attention to it, so I stopped feeling totally out of place. I mean, I wasn't 100% comfortable, but I enjoyed the night.
The evening didn't start as promising though, cuz Ale wasn't feeling good (she hasn't been feeling good for a while, so it didn't surprise me that tireness and all finally caught up with her) and decided not to come.
The highlight of the night was the show of this Brazilian guy, sort of street acrobat, that took Stella, one of my co-workers, for two of his experiments... He basically lined up four chairs, had four girls (including our Stella) sit in each of them, and, after a short run, he jumped over all of them with a flip. Scary. Then, he took Stella again, picked her up and turned her upside down and put her back on her feet again, in like a second, with no apparent strain, like she was a doll. And Stella didn't even realize what he did, completely clueless, lol.
Funny is, she was waiting for her boyfriend to arrive, and someone mentioned "think if Sandro saw all this" and after a while we realized that he had been standing the whole time right behind us, near the pool, and when Stella saw him, he pretended to be mad at her for "playing" with the Brazilian guy. :D
Man, Sandro is just so funny. At some point he asked me and Samanta "what the fuck are you doing here?", like we didn't belong to that table - as I said, we work in different places (me and Samanta at the ice cream place, Stella, Sarah and Daniela at one sandwich place and Ale, Alice, Agata and Luisa at the other sandwich place) so he probably didn't remember us - and we went like "we work at the ice cream parlour!" and he was all "aaah! I thought I've seen you before!" guess without our bright yellow cap, we aren't that recognizable anymore.
Anyway, he asked me what my name was, but the music was loud and he didn't quite get the answer, so I yelled again "Ilaria!" and he went like "Ah, Ilaria! I thought I heard your name's Sylenia." lmao, Sylenia, and he continued "in fact, I was thinking 'what kind of name is Sylenia?!? A name like that you go at the register and change it!'... So, what did you say your name was?" and I was like "Sylenia!" and he replyed "Right, Sylenia! I thought I heard Ilaria!" and I played along "What kind of name is Ilaria?!?" and together "a name like that you go at the register and change it!" lmao, high five. So for the rest of the night he kept calling me Sylenia.
Collapse )
Lol, I like Sandro! XD
Anyways, we stayed there till about 2am, there was music, people dancing, people swimming in the pool, people drinking, usual stuff. I mostly sit at the table chatting with Agata and Samanta.
At some point I saw a girl with a really pretty gilet and I asked her were she bought it. Samanta was shocked "are you drunk?" Um, what's so wrong now? "Why? I liked her gilet... if you liked her shoes, wouldn't you have asked her where she bought them?" the easiest choice can be the right one, you know... But she was all "No! I would've looked everywhere for them and eventually given up." well, I'm lazy, I don't like wasting time like that. :P
In the end not a bad night after all. I like spending time with the girls even if I still don't know them very well.

Obligatory fashion meme: Collapse )

Batman Returns - (H)ELLO (T)HERE

I think I'm going out of my mind if it's not already gone by now

This is going to be a nightmare. I'm going out with all my co-workers tonight, we're having dinner and, um, not sure where we'll go then. Well, they're not all my co-workers, but we all work under the same person (no jokes here!), in the three places he owns, and we pretty much know each other.
I'm cool with going out together, you know, but I just want to seriously kill who picked the place. We're going to this super chic restaurant/hotel where there's this Brazilian party every Thursday.
I started panicing when the girl who works with me asked me if I was going to wear  high heels... *blinks* Like I have high heels shoes! Luckily I'm not the only one who doesn't own a pair of high heels shoes. They're probably gonna set a table in a corner for those who don't wear high heels. :P Seriously, apparently at this Brazilian party people dresses like they're going at a movie premiere. Not cool. I don't have that kind of clothes! And I can't even pull it off.
I went to the other place to ask the other girls about they're clothing choice. One asked if I was going to wear jeans... *blinks* Like I have other kind of pants besides jeans!
As I said, luckily, also Ale won't try to pull off the elegant look. I told you, they're gonna put us in a corner and we'll want to hide under the table.
I'm probably going to want to kill myself before this night is over. :)
Plus, I made the huge mistake of accepting a ride from Samanta who is always super elegant and good looking. Arriving at that restaurant with her is gonna look like Kathy Bates and Nicole Kidman walking the red carpet together. And I'm no Nicole Kidman.

Today is also my dad's bday. Yesterday at work I made two cakes for him. One had the shape of a heart. :) I brought them home today and we just had a small party. :)
Speaking of cakes, it's funny cuz I always had this nightmare about having people over (like, let's say, Sarah Clarke - in dreams it can happen!) and saying "you just wait here, I'll go grab a cake at the ice cream parlour" and then I'd get caught in some hostage situation or something. And when you have Sarah Clarke over, being late it's not cool. In fact, when I'd come back, the house'd be empty. Now that I can actually make cakes by myself, I hope that my dreams will realize that I'd probably have a good supply of cakes in my freezer.

Now I should probably go kill myself take a shower and get ready for the execution dinner.

Beat this, EW!

So Entertainment Weekly has put Twilight on the cover of the next issue. The pic looks kinda weird though, like someone said, it looks like the cover of a bad trashy romance novel... those my mom uses to read, so she might just lurve that. :P
Did I mention I made my mom totally addicted to Twilight? She's read Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse in like a month, which, I tell ya, it's quite a record for her (she's not a big reader). And now she's dying to read the last book. She's forcing me to order the original version and translate it to her. Like, for real. You just a little bit out of your mind, mommy.
Anyways, back to the EW cover, the caption near the picture says "Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart as Edward and Bella in the movie Twilight" so, following the fans' comments, I'll summ everything up like this: how come they both have blue eyes? Where's the contacts? And that hairdo? He doesn't look like that in the movie. And Edward does not have chest hair (LOL). And he's also supposed to be very fit.
And, I might add, why Rob doesn't even have his eyebrows plucked?
So, this is my attempt to making this somehow right. Couldn't do anything about Rob's hairdo, but I did my best for the rest, even though, deleting the chest hair made it look way too photoshopped (even more than it already was). It still looks somehow weird, but at least I got rid of the beer belly. ;-P


My version (aka, why EW should hire better photoshoppers ;-P):

AHAH, I amuse myself.

Clearly I remember from the windows they were watching

New layout! _ila_! _ila_! _ila_!

So Spain won the European championship. It was a good match to watch and Spain deserved to win, so congrats to the team.
This year I tried to watch all the matches that I could, minus Italy vs Spain cuz I was at work (not cool, I had to listen to it at the radio), but I got home in time for the penality kicks - and we lost anyway, so not such a big loss in the end.

LMAO, Sarah! The crazy clothes! And the crazier hair! And Xander sings! Check out #22 Rebecca.

Yesterday one of my former middle school classmates came by where I work, and she was with her boyfriend. Now, last November when we had the middle school reunion dinner, she was saying that she was in a relationship with this guy who happened to be the brother of a guy I knew; she even showed us pictures of him and he didn't really look that good looking (plus, his brother - the guy I knew - was not good looking at all). But yesterday, when I saw him live... Man, he's cute! He looks like Threadless' Ross - so totally adorable. Like, why do you have such a pretty boyfriend? It's not fair. Ok, let's move on or I might start crying.

Does it ever happen to you that one of your fonts disappears from the computer without you doing anything? I think my computer ate Century Gothic... And I'm really confuzzled.

And a meme. Taggey by goa_glows.

The rules are as follows:
1. Pick a hot guy... take a moment to think.
2. Is this really the guy you want?
3. Pick his top 10 hottest, cutest, most irresistible pictures.
4. Tag 5 other users.

Now, I have to say at first I wanted do Freddy Ljungberg cuz he's just really hot and I've liked him since I saw his CK underwear ad many years, then my aunt started obsessing me with this other dude, David Gandy, a D&G model - she basically sent me on a hunt for every kind of picture of this guy ("better if naked" she said...). And then I realized that the second season of Mad Men is going to premiere like tomorrow and I really can't wait, I missed the show so much, so here he comes, the mad man, Jon Hamm. (Who, in addition of being good looking, he's also a great and golden globe winning actor. Just sayin'...)

Collapse )

EDIT: AHA, forgot to tag 5 people. averita, whenidream, _omnivore_, on_the_ground, cecism!
_ila_ // Sarah Clarke - Feeling geeky!

Mad Men - Mad Don by call_me_daisy

You're the target that I'm aiming at

I hear everybody saying so many good things about Friday Night Lights, so I kinda started watching it. The tricky thing is I know nothing about American football so most of the times, when they're playing, I'm like um, interesting... what was that again? Why did they win? But yeah, it's not like the football match really is the main thing, so you know, never mind. Also, for some weird reason, after watching the first two episodes, I spent the whole night dreaming of Connie Britton and the guy who plays her husband in the show. And it was kind of awkward cuz, uhm, what are you doing in my dreams? Do I even know you? Like, I watched 3 movies with Lena Headey in 3 days, then I watched 2 movies with Sarah, and not once I've dreamt about them. I watch FNL once and I dream about it. My mind works in mysterious ways. Or it doesn't work at all... I've also dreamt I had a shiny green Jaguar. Not sure why. And I was very disappointed when I woke up and realized I didn't really have it. Anyways!
Since we're talking about movies and stuff, I've also seen The Lather Effect. Ok, Sarah was beyond adorable in it (although she says the best '80s song ever is the American remake of Umberto Tozzi's "Gloria"... go figure), but the movie? It kind of sucked wasn't as cool. Bad Sarah. You make me watch and purchase these silly movies I'd never watch. If it wasn't for you.

After 15 lines of the usual nonsense, I kind of have a favour to ask to my American pals... Hi guys! *waves*
So, I was kinda hoping someone could buy - and mail me - the June issue of Entertainment Weekly with Mad Men on the cover (pictured here on the left).

I have no idea if it's already out or anything, but if you happen to find a copy and would be willing to send it to me, I'd really appreciate. If you have PayPal then I can reimburse you the price of the magazine and the shipping, or I can get you an Amazon gift certificate, Threadless shirts (which is having crazy sale right now), etc.. I'm sure we can work something out. :)
nebakanezer FTW. :)
