Chillones

Luego de destazar por 3-0 a los Pumas, las honorables y poderosas Chivas Rayadas de Guadalajara sacaron un desplegado en diversos diarios de circulación nacional:


Pero al parecer los Pumas se pusieron a lloriquear y ahora la federación aplicó una multa contra Chivas (también contra el coach de Pumas por insultar durante su lloriqueo).

No puedo creer que sean tan chillones, y que los federativos sean tan idiotas. En Estados Unidos ya habría un juicio por aplicar censura a lo estúpido.

Chillones.

Voy a intentar obtener los demás desplegados. Recuerdo uno contra el América que decía "En su nido, sólo nuestros huevos" jajajajaja.

Slide Away

I entirely forgot about this Oasis song. Just heard it again when I put "Stop the Clocks" into my car stereo.

It's a bloody beautiful song:

Now that you're mine
We'll find a way
Of chasing the sun
Let me be the one, that shines with you
in the morning, I don't know what to do
two of a kind
We'll find a way
To do what we've done
Let me be the one, that shines with you
And we can slide away

Rock Band Game

Not the XBox - PS3 one to start with.

I got this from Michel's blog. The idea is to "create" the name, album name and album cover of your band. Instructions are:

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4.Use your graphics programme of choice to throw them together, and post the result.

For me, the results are:

NAME: Haematococus

ALBUM NAME: What we repeatedly do

ALBUM COVER:


It's important to say that the album cover is very crappy because "my graphics programme of choice" is MS Paint. I hate graphics and everything related to them. So I use Paint.

I used the Oasis font because Oasis rocks.

From South France with love...

No sé en qué pensaban...

... pero los organizadores del evento al que fui a Florianópolis reservaron en un hotel localizaco en la Calle del Marisco "Rua do Marisco"... y el restaurante del hotel se llamaba:


Maricota!!!

¡Así es! Estuve en la calle de los Mariscos comiendo en el retaurante Maricota

Ah sí. Y ya me dí a entender en portugués! Bueno... en portuñol. Isso cara!!

Patrulla Navideña

Ayer iba con Ojos a ver a mis H.H.H. Suegros y a despedirnos de su hermano que regresa a sus estudios en los inhóspitos territorios yankees. En el camino nos cruzamos con una patrulla que tenía un bonito árbol navideño colgando del retrovisor:

Polis navideños

La foto se ve del nabo porque no quería que la "autoridá" me viera tomándoles fotos (uno nunca sabe cómo va a reaccionar la tira).

El punto es que el espíritu navideño llega hasta la "autoridá" y brindo por ello.

Yaris on Ice

Hoy salí de mi departamento dispuesto a llegar temprano al trabajo. Sin embargo, al subirme a mi pequeño Yaris me encontré con lo siguiente:

Hielo!!

Tuve que pasar los limpiadores, luego un trapo, y eventualmente un cepillo como de escoba. Todo infructuosamente. Terminé saliendo tarde y manejando despacio hasta que el hielo se fue y pude manejar normalmente.

¡¡¡¡Y no vivo en un pueblo lejano!!!! Vivo rumbo a Toluca sí, pero en los primeros 5 km. de la carretera. Frío del mal.

Obviamente llegué tarde. ¡¡Demonios!!

2k7, 2k8

2k7
  1. Relationship with in-laws got to its lowest point ever, bouncing back unexpecteadly in December.
  2. Moved in with Ojos was by far the highlight of the year. It has proved to be the best move I've ever made in my life.
  3. Lots and lots of travelling... Río, South France, Central America, Kingston, Santo Domingo Montreal.
  4. Lots of credit card debt, dealt with thanks to the december money rush -yey!-
  5. Year ends with a big proffessional change... technically a promotion, but I'm waiting $$$for it to feel like one$$$ before I formally call it that way.
  6. I miss my dog, who couldn't move in with Ojos and Me (since we live in an apartment).
2k8
  1. More lots of travelling... but to more interesting lattitudes (apparently)
  2. New team, new boss, new challenges. And a new job if the promotion doesn't feel like one ;-)

  4. Posting more interesting stuff than this.

  1. Very cool black shoes
