“I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.”

New Year's eve in 2 days, New Year in 3!

It's been 5 days since my last post, since Christmas eve and since I found out that dictionary has god with no capital G and Satan with capital S.
Anyway Christmas lunch went well or as expected. People making noise altogether, eating from the food which is not ready or served yet cause we just can't wait a bit, walking around the sitting room and dining room. When the food was ready, it disappeared in like 15 minutes. Desserts in 3. I'm  not complaining, everything went as expected as I already said but I'm surprised every year. Let's not  talk about the dishes...
I had a good time too though. Just not that particular day. But I went out the same night and it was fun. A couple of friends, not in the same haunt we go every time, nice music, alcohol, conversation. That happened yesterday also and it was even better. It's nice to get to know new people that you are able to talk with. People who have the maturity to get involved into a conversation and actually talk. Pretty nice.
But I think that I need to get out of this place sometime soon or not. It's not gonna be soon because there are no money to do so, but I really really need to meet people. To get out for a walk and see strangers, to meet someone and talk or get a cup of coffee. When I go out of my house, I meet the people I already know for years, we go to the same places over and over again and say pretty much the same things every time. No progress, no evolution. That is the worst thing that can happen when you are living in a small place, or even worse on an island where the only way you can get out is by plane or ship.
I wish I could take my car and just drive.

This is part from my previous post. Please notice how the word "god" was written (2nd line from bottom to top) and how "Satan" (last line) was written. No capital first letter. But I guess dictionary has a different point of view for the two of them.... So I changed it to be syntactically correct, it's not my fault!

Xmas time!.!.!.!

Yup that time has come.... I bet you all stormed out of your houses, storm coming or not, snowing or not and just filled those Christmas stockings up! Right? That was the best thing to do. I didn't. So this year's holiday is kinda black for me and filled with misery but no worries, I do try and hide these negative feelings deep inside. For the sake of all of us. And since I'm not telling anyone, thank god I have my blog for this!
But the truth is that I do love Christmas time. I do feel all warm inside, I'm no Satan's child or whatever. I do feel the love and I do love Christmas lights and whatever else is there on this holiday. The only think I don't like is that this is all about one person. And that is why I choose to ignore everything involving him.
Which I can't do with the entire family coming over for lunch tomorrow.... Oh boy.... I can't begin to explain and analyze the nature of our dialogue, the noise, the complaints, the "you never call to see how I am doing but never mind I was no near your entire childhood" attitude, the fact that I have to endure all this and not say a word cause we're family, the cleaning up afterwards..... I'm mentioning the cleaning up cause we eat a lot and we're quite a few. Cause we're Greeks. And when we say "family is coming over for lunch" that doesn't signify 4 or 5 persons nor 4 or 5 plates. So let it be and Merry Christmas to all of us!!

David Gray - Sail Away (Live Jools Holland 2007)

Do I love his voice? YES.

Does it take me far far away from everything? YES.

Does it leave me with a bittersweet feeling? Yes...

Does the moody weather and my hormones help? Yes...

C'est chic

I have never visited Paris. I imagine it to be so chic and elegant. People looking after the way they look, the way they talk and even the way they sit. Drinking coffee in the small neighborhood cafes with its tables and chairs on the pavement where one can sit and chat with a friend about what's going on with their lives. The sun caressing them and all you can hear is laughter and all you can see is smiles. No cars, no annoying noises, no yelling.
It's like a dream picture in my head. In a different era probably. I imagine even flirting happens in a different way in Paris. In a more classy and romantic way. I wouldn't mind living there for a year or two and see how life goes on in that part of the world.
I don't mind living in Switzerland either. Things are different there. Class and elegance of course exist but so does a lot of wealth. On my mind, Switzerland is full of wealthy bankers and very influential people all smoking cigars. Every important person in the world has a bank account in Switzerland* and of course they spend their winter vacations in the Alps in a beautiful chalet with a fireplace. Peaceful lakes and beautiful rivers passing in front of your house and not one piece of garbage on the streets. Life is for the ones having the money to spend it right. And life is short and we only get to live it once. And that kinda sucks! What would I do if I had another life to live? That's another thing to talk about. But I sure as hell would have made things differently.

*Historically in Switzerland a minimum of Francs 1 million was required to open an account in a private bank, however, over the last years many of them have lowered their entry hurdles to Francs 250,000 for private investors.

Goose bumps

This is what happens to me when I listen to this track http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYpDJw7fThU&ob=av2n :

"Goose bumps, also called goose flesh, goose pimples, chill bumps, chicken skin, funky spots, Dasler Bumps, chicken bumps or the medical term cutis anserina, are the bumps on a person's skin at the base of body hairs which may involuntarily develop when a person is cold or experiences strong emotions such as fear, nostalgia, pleasure, awe, admiration or sexual arousal.......

Genuine laugh

"I don't know the key to success but I know the key to failure is trying to please everybody." - Bill Cosby

 Please, please, please watch Bill Cosby videos on YouTube or wherever you can find them! This man is not just the greatest stand-up comedian in the world for me... he's a natural born talent.

Along with....

The fact that I played ping-pong this afternoon and boy was it fun?! Very revitalizing and I can say that I'm getting good pretty quickly. Maybe I'll go again tomorrow for a game or two. And we had delicious crepes for dinner! Filled with different kinds of goodies....sausages, green peppers, bacon, red peppers, onions, orange peppers, melting cheese, ketchup.... Oh man I love food. And I had to fill in for the calories I lost playing. Right?

A post in a cafe

Was I longing for blogging and drinking a hot cup of coffee in my favorite cafeteria? Of course. Am I annoyed by the loud and stupid voices who only want to be heard and do no good at all? Of course! Am I overreacting? Trust me, I'm not.

One day

Bittersweet. What do you feel more? Bitter or sweet?
When you watch a movie involving an almost unfulfilled true passionate powerful love and is brutally interrupted by death, what does it make you think or feel?

Εν αρχή ην ο λόγος

Και σε αυτό το σημείο θα ήθελα να δηλώσω οτι ο τίτλος του πρώτου μου post, ουδεμία σχέση έχει με το θρήσκευμά σας και κανένα άλλο θρήσκευμα. Και συνεχίζω.

Ότι θα μου έπαιρνε μέρες να αποφασίσω τι χρώμα θέλω να είναι οι σύνδεσμοι και οι τίτλοι του blog, τι μέγεθος να είναι η γραμματοσειρά και οι περιγραφές, δεν το περίμενα. Εμείς οι γυναίκες έχουμε βγει πιο εξελιγμένο μοντέλο τελικά. Και φυσικά με όλα τα προβλήματα του εξελιγμένου μοντέλου καθώς τα παλαιότερα είναι πάντα πιο σταθερά και χωρίς αχρείαστες πολυπλοκότητες. Ναι εννοώ τους άντρες. Αυτά τα πλάσματα που τόσο πολύ αδικημένα είναι.
