It's been two weeks since I have a contracture in my back and shoulder and it's ridiculous how much it's affecting me. No matter how strictly I follow my physiotherapist's exercises and advice, it isn't going anywhere. I'd need a vacation and not to increase the daily hours I spend in front of the computer T_T Well, wishful thinking.

At least I still find a little time to read for pleasure (from time to time). Fanfics aside, I'm in the middle of a wonderful semi-victorian novel, Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay, and I'm loving it to pieces. The story so far is masterfully written and I want need fics about Albert and Mike! I hadn't seen such a blatant male crush since Watson and Holmes! (Well, actually I have but that's not the question right now...). Problem is that it looks like there's almost no fandom at all about this book, and the only fanfic I found was about the female characters and nothing about the two boys. Maybe one day...

In the meantime, you can take a look at what could be my city's traffic nowadays (because of never-ending public works) at certain hours in the morning. Of course, the video could also explain quite a few things about Crowley's driving habits ;)

Now, sleep.

*le sigh*

I can't understand why I'm unable to find time enough to do all the things I want AND be connected to the Internet every now and then...

I miss you, guys!

Well, rubber-ducks race on Sunday and driving licence exam on Tuesday.

I can't believe it's july already! It means I've been two weeks doing almost nothing. I guess I had almost forgotten how awesome is to have free time day and night XD

I visited the Expo 2008 and got a funny passport to stamp at the different stands. Regretfully the better ones had queues so long that we had to wait for an hour or more to enter. In the end we visited the ones with less people, that is, Egypt, Nepal, Mongolia, Vietnam, Thailand, India, Brazil and Greece. And even so we were waiting at least 45 minutes for Greece and 30 for Brazil and Egypt! Next time we're definitely seeing Japan and another bunch of countries, and if we're lucky, maybe the Aquarius too.

The Bridge Pavilion let me astounded! Zaha Hadid's design is amazing and no matter what some people say, I'm glad all the new buildings and bridges will remain after the Expo.

Pics of the day -but don't expect many photos of the pavilions' interior because it was ridiculously difficult to find some light on the inside... )

The swimming pool has been another great pastime. And I'd rather not count all the time I've spent at one cafe or another with my friends :D Or the things I've bought! *lol* you know, there was this nice red and black bag I saw days ago...

Today however I feel all kinds of lazy and haven't written the report I should have written for my next journey. I'm going to Rome next saturday!! To take some photos of the ancient roads and, officially, to go to the library -though I reserve myself the unofficial right to decide how many days I'll spend in the library :P

The Fool is the spirit in search of experience. He represents the mystical cleverness bereft of reason within us, the childlike ability to tune into the inner workings of the world. The sun shining behind him represents the divine nature of the Fool's wisdom and exuberance. On his back are all the possessions he might need. In his hand there is a flower, showing his appreciation of beauty. He is frequently accompanied by a dog, sometimes seen as his animal desires, sometimes as the call of the "real world", nipping at his heels and distracting him. He is seemingly unconcerned that he is standing on a precipice, apparently about to leap, engaged in the supremest act of idiocy or trust.*

This Fool is currently prisoner of the High Priestess.
And needs sleep, not a knee ache.

That way tomorrow the Fool could go back to proper writing and wonderful eagerness for Saiyuki new scans ♥

*that's Wikipedia for you, 'cause I feel kind of lazy right now.

Sorry, I know most of you don't speak spanish but the 80s and 90s were more or less the same everywhere, ne? XD

I should begin with the packing cause I come back home on wednesday. Should also tidy my last notes and rewrite some things for tomorrow.
But it seems I can't get myself to do anything -.- I'm sure the gloomy weather has something to do with it, or maybe the fact that I finished Good Omens yesterday and I don't want to read anything today. No doubt one of the BEST books evar ♥ Today I'm missing all the laughing of the last few days.

All of a sudden all I want to do is draw angels XD

Ps: memes later~

V for...

Thanks to my knee I spent the whole weekend at home -by the way, in the end I went to the doctor and now my leg is all bandaged to keep me from moving it :( Luckily I could walk normally by the end of the week.

The thing is that as I couldn't go out, friends came to my place and we watched V for Vendetta. And all I can say it's that now it's one of my favourites films! It reminds me a lot of 1984 by Orwell and Fahrenheit 451 by Bradbury. Though it's scary when you think what a dangerous weapon the fear is. Even more when I think that Spain was a dictatorship 30 years ago...

But everything about this film is great. Hugo Weaving is an awesome V and he plays without a single facial expression! The visual effects also made me sparkle, and of course the fighting scenes! I have to buy the comic XD

Now back to work~

How to describe my day: full of joice would fit quite well. Right now it's the only moment of relax I've had today, which is great! Last year I spent all day long in bed with a horrible fever but today I had fun and presents to compensate the last two years XD

I had received so many japanese stile presents I think I could open my own shop next year -my friends know me too well... and I think they find appealing to have another kind of things to buy me instead of books ;P For one thing now I have a cute set for sake, another set of beautiful chopsticks in wood and nacre, a book on ukiyo-e that I wanted to buy time ago and a sumi-e picture dedicated to me! X3 As they seem to be in love with the chopsticks I decided to keep them for dinners in group: it'll be awesome to see them trying to eat with them *smirks* And they bought me JET last CD!! ^.^ I'll say in my defense I treated them all to chocolates and alcohol.

Meal with my mother was great too. Perhaps things like this are what I like the most about these days. She even lighted two candles over a strawberry mini-cake and made me wish something <3

But I also had work to do, and too much. Monday in Madrid was in the end another excuse to increase the number of projects we already had. Many interesting ideas and enthusiasm about new fields of research and of course very few people to do the job. At least Madrid looked beautiful from the taxi.

In fact I feel quite stressed this week but hey, B-day was awesome and with proper arguments I'm easily distracted from work worries, so YAY!

I'm almost done with the waking up early every morning. What a relief! I know I'm not a morning person but after too many days of sleeping much less than I should, I decided there shouldn't be anything before 10 11 in the morning.

I'll call today a exception, however. This morning it was the regional championship of jujitsu and some of my mates were participating. In the end my tori/uke and I will be there, too, next year -I'm not that convinced yet but well, there're 365 days to consider it. I guess I won't mind to try for once. And it would be inconsidirate not listen to my uke, right? XDDD

Kubo/Toki manifesto on going. Yay! Yesterday even arrived the first volume of W·A *g* My first Tokyopop volume in fact -who knows when it'll be released in Spain. I have the impression that here if there's no anime version it's better not to hope for the translated manga, meh. If only shipping costs were lower...

Lately I feel lazier than usual, it could be the weather; after Halloween, November begins and I hate it. November and December are just not my months. But October is great. So great that I always finish it in bankrupt. That's why I want to sincerely thank the gentle waiter who yesterday gave us a delicious chocolate dessert for free <3 Much love for him~

Yesterday night also brought to my mind a strange event:
in July, when I was with my fiends at the airport of Prague checking our boarding tickets, we met a teacher from university. He happens to be one of my favourite teachers and, we could say, my "academic angel" (he was the first one who bet on me).

The fact itself is quite normal. But what is the probability of that to happen?
I mean:
-we lost the car we should have taken to the airport.
-we almost lost the plane (we were the last passengers who boarded).
-I hadn't seen him nor couldn't find him during the whole last course.
-we were right in front of him in a queue with no one else and he didn't recognize us. (?)
-when we talked to him he acted really weird: generally, he's very gentle with old pupils, but I don't know, he was simply weird.
-we crossed the boarding door and right after, we heard the air hostess telling him he had misread his flight's hour.

Now, what is the probability to misread the hour of your flight -especially when there's no other flight till the evening-, arrive just in time to close the boarding queue and meet there with people you know but never meet in your own city? And if they are late and the flight is waiting?

Ok, while I'm writing this I realize it doesn't sound as strange as I perceived it. However in that moment and even now, I have that surreal feeling that weird dreams leave behind.

If I talk about all this right now it's because I remembered it this week for no reason at all. Curiously, one of my best friends, and traveling mate, had the same thought this week too.

Coincidences are this, but then I can't help but think if maybe sometimes Destiny tries to tell me something and I'm unable to figure it out.

The three packets that I sent from Rome have finally arrived \^o^/ (it took them more than a month to arrive, fear the Italian Post!) which means that I had three boxes plenty of books to place in a room with only three shelves alraedy occupied. The result is a weird view of books pretending to be unstable mountains over the old ones, but I guess that will do while I find more space (aka: restructure my room). Good enough I found a few things that I had almost forgot LIKE THIS XD. It feels so good to find this kind of memories X3
I'm still laughing: I swear that was NOT a Pocahontas cosplay! XDDD
