Should we make New Year's resolutions?

I was reviewing my New Year's resolutions for 2008 and well, I did not accomplish any of them. They were not so far fetched... the usual. Lose weight - I maintained it, did not put on any extra but could lose some. Find a job - I tried and tried. Will continue trying harder. Improve my relationship with Peter... well, it's still going, right? Not improved-improved, but we are still together.

2008Collapse )






It's better to watch other communities....

than writting my own journal! I am watching

kittypix, cat_adoration, kittyloaves, tortielove, graycatclub, and many other cat related communities instead of writting something meaningful. I just love cats, and love my cats so much!

We were fiishing our bedroom and I was sleeping in a camp bed... most of the cats found it quite appealing


 
My brother sent me this Atlantis luchador mask... I tried it on during Christmas (in classic "luchador" stance)



I think my cats would be scared if they saw me with the mask, so I don't think I will try that one


 


Long time no posting here

I always forget that I do have a journal here... I had been only posting to other communities and reading and looking at everybody else's pictures and nothing more. ugh.

What had I been up lately? I finished my Multimedia Design studies - got a 10 on the final exam. I got a new kitten (Felix) that just walked in our shop one day and asked to stay. We were not that busy this summer at the shop... seasonal place and crappy summer weather here in Bornholm did not make a good combination. Our cat family is looking good and all of them are so cute. I had not been able to find a job.

Talking about jobs, how do you like this: the news in Denmark say that there is an urgent need for engineers in all sorts of companies and all sorts of positions. Some of the big companies, like Vestas and Danfoss, clamor that they have to go all the way to Poland to find engineers. Well, I am an electronics engineer, have a residence permit and passable Danish. Every single application I have submitted has received a "thank you but no thank you" answer. Jerks.

I will write more soon. Need to go and make a pizza now...

mercury in retrograde?

I read a few days ago that if "things seem to be going crazy, computers are not working, people are acting strange, etc." you should know that Mercury is going retrograde and the phase will last until December 5 or so. HA! Well, today I think that the infamous retrograde came en force to us. First, computer at school conks out, so we cannot work with the databases. Next, I get home and the moment I turn on the light the fuse blows. Next, Rumelita (her from my picture) has been sick and didn't make it to the cat box and I had quite a bit of cleaning to do. Now at the pizzeria, I start chopping onions that looked so good on the outside and were rotten on the inside; next, I defrost some kebab meat and the smell was so funky it made us dizzy. We had to tell the pizza baker to throw out the pizzas and give discounts to the customers. We need to take the stupid meat back to the wholeseller tomorrow. I'm afraid to open the fridge now, God knows what will jump out and attack me.

Tarot cards and ripe nectarines - bad combination

I forgot that I had put a ripe nectarine in my handbag and threw my beautiful Tarot of Prague cards in there. I suddenly remembered about the fruit and in a panic rushed to open the bag. Too late, the nectarine "exploded" and ruined my cards. I have nectarine juice stains in the beautiful card case and several of the cards got badly damaged - wavy edges with brownish stains. I was almost in tears. I wonder if the new edition of the Tarot of Prague is printed in a better card stock, just like the Fairytale Tarot. It's so flexible and with a soft sheen. I will find out now that I get a new deck :-(

In the previous posting I was sad because Maugli and Lucky had gone to their new home. Well, guess who's back? We had to pick them up today, after the new owner complained that her adult cat would not accept the kittens and was getting too mean with them. She did not like the kittens running all over the place either, so she called and asked us to take them back. I feel happy that the poor kitties are back with us, they were so scared and ran to meet me when they heard my voice, but I feel disappointed - the stupid owner made an agreement with us to get the two kittens when they weren't even born, and then a month before we delivered the kittens she goes and gets an adult cat. Good for the cat, not responsible from the owner. En fin. Así es la vida.

bye bye kitties

Today is the last day we have the whole kitten tribe. Lucky and Maugli (name is the Lithuanian version of Mowgli from the Jungle Book) are going to their new home. They are the two grey with stripes, Lucky has very lady-like white gloves.



So far, we get to keep Batman and Toño, but we also have three adult cats plus these two crazy 6-month kittens, I don't know. We are moving soon to a smaller apartment and it will be kind of crowded with five cats.

An unexperienced blogger

I decided to join Life Journal after looking at all the nice things posted in the baba_studio blog. I just LOVE their work. But then, I've never wrote anything interesting in my own blog, let alone anybody else's blog.

I just got a copy of the Tarot of Prague... I find the book absolutely fascinating! I had read so many reviews about this tarot set. The good reviews are wonderful, but the bad reviews... Jeez-us, they are negative. So I was in two minds about getting it, after buying the Fairytale Tarot and the Baroque Bohemian Cats' Tarot. So, I got it. Now, I simply must travel to Prague. One of these days. First I want to travel home to Mexico City. Next time I am able to take some time off, I want to go to Prague and explore.

Another thing I just saw are the "real" cards from the Victorian Romantic Tarot - gorgeous picture published in the baba_studio journal. I am so much looking forward to having these cards, plus the journal. I think Karen is so right about the feeling she has for the cards, I also believe the cards will talk. By looking at the pictures at http://www.victorianromantic.com/ I can say that so far, my favorite cards are The Devil (gorgeous temptress), Three of Swords (an image of heartbreak and desolation captured with so much precision), and the Queen of Swords (that's dignity!). When are the cards coming????

They are my favorite people now. I admire so much their creative ability and gorgeous works. I wish I could do something as fine as they do. So far I have to be happy with buying their products and looking at their cards and other works again and again
