18 * january * All Things Change

All Things Change

I got up early to go to the interview, when the HR lady gave me the adress I knew it was a little bit far but never thought it could be THAT far. I live in Mexico City, so I took a bus that goes through the neighbour state and when it was about to enter the next state I got down and took another bus that lead me to a parallel dusty road.

Lots of people were there for the interview and I even saw a guy who took a class or two with me in college. I think the interview went ok but the guy frowned a little when I said what I would like to earn.

As I was about to meet with the chief of design for the interview, my dad called me to say I just received a phone call for another interview, when I got home he explained to me it's for a school located in the same area of the company I just visited so I guess the answer for that one is no.

Later I went to the movies to see Saint Ange which was a little bit slow in my opinion. And today was "changing tootbrush" day.

:) I try to change it often because with an old toothbrush you just don't get the same results that you get with a new one

And I forgot to say in my previous comment: Saint Ange is a 2004 movie about a woman that goes to work in an abandoned orphanage in the Alps and hears voices, nothing outstanding...

19 * january * Nihil

Nihil

Friday was a very peaceful day compared to the pace of this week, pretty much did nothing except buying a birthday present for my brother.

Being a "die hard" Dallas Cowboys fan, my bf and I thought a cap would be ideal for him. I went to a mall with a Football store and found out they had all kinds of caps of ALL the teams but one -guess which one?- so I went to a sports store in the same mall and found some t-shirts that looked nice so I searched for his team and noticed a slight difference between that one and the rest. Dallas Cowboys are really popular here so to buy that t-shirt you have to pay almost three times what you would pay for any of the other team's shirts and since I didn't even had that kind of money with me I decided to get something else.

I went to another store and ended up buying the special edition Superman DVD and while browsing through the magazines I saw this one named a! diseño, it's about design and it used to be a very important publication but it's been very irregular in the last couple of years so it's almost a miracle to find it.

Weird thing: you can see in the bottom the date for the magazine, in print says: jan 20th and in the label says jan 26th BUT almost all the adds are for conferences held up last december so it's no wonder they are going out of business :P

20 * january * Bug Eyes

Bug Eyes

My brother's birthday is monday but since is not a very practical day for a party he decided to celebrate this saturday so around 3:30 my uncle came by my house to pick us (parents, boyfriend and me) up. When we arrived there were some friends of my bro and sister-in-law and later my aunts and cousins with their husbands and kids arrived.

The highlight of the day? the food, was sooo great that I ate way too much: a couple of steaks -tiny ones-, a couple of quesadillas -tortilla with melted cheese in it-, rice and some chorizo, all these covered in guacamole. Had some beers and in the end we ate cake and flan, great party it was but I just couldn't bring myself to take pics of that

In the picture you can see one of my brother's pets hiding under a drawing table. My brother has a dog-daughter: Hunter -you'll meet her later- and a cat-daughter: Holly and this is one of his cat's daughters, her name is Snow and she's really shy, the other daughter is Riot and she was hiding from the people.

21 * january * Wise up

Wise up

Relaxed sunday -as if I still have to say that with this lazy life I'm living these days-, didn't do much and then... we ate.

My mom works from monday to friday -sometimes even saturdays- so she only cooks on sundays, she cooks a big amount so we have food for the week and the rest of the days my dad cooks. This sunday she cooked Alambres -exact translation would be Wires, go figure...-, the recipe changes a little from person to person, hers have: steak, chopped onions, bacon, green peppers and chorizo and they're covered with melted cheese.

First we had rice -Arroz Poblano is the name for this rice cooked with tomato- and then the Alambres, we all ended up stuffed as turkeys because the food was amazing.

Later I went to the movies to see "Fuera del Cielo" and took this photo before the movie began, there, in the big screen you can read "Exercize", an advise I really should take after this past days meals.

22 * january * A Child in me

A Child in me

I had a relaxed d... ok, wait, to stop repeating myself let's all just assume that all days are relaxed until I state the contrary...

I went to the bank to fix a problem with an account I cancelled a few months ago, problem solved. While I was there I asked for my credit card debt for this month since I haven't got it by mail and I was shocked to see how much I spent last month, definitely the credit card will be grounded for some weeks.

In the picture you see a sandwich I ate while watching tv at night, it was a simple white bread/mayonaisse/turkey breast sandwich but reminded me of my childhood when my mother prepared my lunch for school. She gave me a sandwich made with wheat bread and ham, smashed beans, cheese and avocado in it and I always wanted a sandwich like the one I ate this night but she never gave it to me because it was too simple for her taste :P

23 * january * Perfect Day

2301

So far the best day of the year but let's not get ahead, first things first.

Normal day, a little bit of this and a little bit of that. The only plan for the day was going to the movies at night.

When my boyfriend came to pick me up he had roses for me, before I met him I never thought of flowers as something special to receive to the point that one day in the beginning of our relationship he told me: I don't care if you think flowers are nothing special, they are a way for me to show you how I feel so I'll give them to you, needless to say, I love them and always take a pic or two of the flowers he gives me.

When I saw the flowers I thought "there's my pic of the day, I want a pic of the flowers in the vase" but something happened later that made me change my flowers shot. As I said we went to the movies, we saw "Perfume: Story of a Murderer", coincidentaly we read the book some months ago so we talked about the details we liked and the ones we don't on our way back home.

Now, here comes the tricky part because we talked about something that put a big big smile in my face and, if it's possible, a bigger smile in my mind BUT... I can't talk about it yet until I have some things figured out so... for now you'll have to settle with the "there's something that makes me happy" part :D

Together Complete

It's a delight when you get out of work a couple of hours early to spend the afternoon with...

No, no, no, I don't have a job so that's wrong....

Let's see...

It's a delight when your loved one gets out of work a couple of hours early to spend the afternoon with you.

That sounds correct :D

Huge amounts of work have been keeping us a little bit apart but we had a great afternoon together and a delicious dinner at night. In the pic you see some "tacos al pastor" which is meat cooked in a vertical rotisserie, pretty much like the ones used for kebabs. The meat is seasoned with chilly, tomato and spices and is served over a couple of tiny tortillas and a little slice of pineapple, you can garnish with chopped coriander and onions and add lemon and sauce and there you have a typical Mexico City food.

The title of the post obviously has more to do with the highlight than the pic and I promise this is the last food pic of the week.

Cold Seed

It's been a couple of days with temperature going down and since I woke up this morning I felt like I'm getting a cold, let's hope is nothing serious.

26 * january * The Memory Remains...

The Memory Remains...

Definitely I have a cold and for what I'm seeing it's a nasty one, today I felt really bad. My other choice for today's pic was a runny nose (j/k) so definitely this was the best photo to post.

This is a very special box of tissues, and it has nothing to do with Winnie the Pooh being on it -although that's the reason why it was picked at the supermarket. This box is at least 5 years old and was given to me by my grandpa who passed away 5 years ago. I'll talk about him later so right now you'll only hear the story of this box.

The city government gives support for senior citizens -over 70 years old-, he was 88 when he started receiving this help. With the money he got bought things for his house and most of the times things for his sons and daughters. A couple of weeks before his 89th birthday something happened -we didn't knew back then- and he decided to stay in bed permanently so my uncle and his daughter did the shopping -and I suspect they took advantage of this.

My cousin loves Winnie the Pooh so I'm sure she picked this box for herself but forgot to take it out of the bags she left at my grandpa's. Me and my parents used to visit him every sunday to eat and spend some time with him, so one day he gave the tissue box to me and admitted no excuse when I tried to say no.

A few months later he died and I kept the box closed like it was when he gave it to me, one day -at least three years later- I decided to open it up and use it, but never too much. It only has a couple of tissues now and by the look of things it's gonna be over before tomorrow and I'll feel sad just like my mom did when she took the last piece of the aluminum foil he gave her.

27 * january * Fun for me

Fun for me

Last night when I was trying to sleep I felt my throat a little bit sore and guess what? this morning I woke up with a beautiful cough. I spent the lousy morning coughing and sneezing 'till my nose looked like a tomato and I got a little bit upset 'cause I had plans for sunday.

The evening was quite a joy I should say tho.

Lyn -my boyfriend- came by with supermarket bags, in one of them was this delicious cake with cherries in it, in another bag he had doritos and pringles but the third bag was the best: he bought board games because he knew I can't go out.

So we spent all afternoon playing games. First we played with memory cards, then we played a game with colour chopsticks and later chinese checkers, then we played dominoes and I had a blast The best thing? he paitently explained the things I didn't knew of the game -I knew the basics and that's it. After that, I took out the cards and we played several kinds of poker and a few games more until it was time for him to go home.

I spent the afternoon sneezing and coughing but felt really well, weird huh?

My wife says she likes it when I explain things in a calm, warm manner - to be sure I like it when she does the same ! Here is hoping you feel much better today.
