The Show Must Go On

EN: Warning: This post is over two years old, so it's possible that the views, opinions, links or instructions reflected on it do not correspond with the way I think now or the way things currently work. I have evolved (and so have the World and the Internet), so it might be advisable to just take this entry for a glimpse into the (my) past. :)

ES: Atención: Este artículo tiene más de dos años de antigüedad, de modo que los puntos de vista, opiniones e instrucciones que se vierten en él pueden no corresponder con cómo pienso ahora o cómo funcionan las cosas en la actualidad. He evolucionado (y también lo han hecho el mundo e Internet), así que probablemente lo más recomendable sería entender esta entrada como un simple reflejo del (de mi) pasado. :)

I have just come from voting (well, I have just come from having lunch and taking a shower, but oh well :P).

We have had a performance this morning at the Festa do Caldo, in Mourente: between Pontevedra and Tenorio. Everything went ok, but it seems that there were not as many people as other years, and we kept one minute of silence for the victims of last Thursday attacks. I was in charge of conducting our show, but I also had to dance one piece and play the tambourine :dead: (my father played the Galician bagpipe and my cousin B. played the drum). But I managed to not fall down when running from one place to another :geeked:.

Well, just after that, we got my cousin to her house (she was starving) and my father and I went to vote: yup, with our folcloric costumes 8-) . The attacks have made a lot of people aware to go to vote, so in my opinion it wouldn’t be strange that the socialists win: a lot of people that refused to vote in past elections were socialists that were a bit disenchanted with the PSOE (the main socialist party), and I think they are going to vote this time.

By the way, the only thing about the attacks that is clear currently is that nothing is clear, so :vexed: no comments about that. (I’m still thinking that ETA is involved in some way… Bah, whatever.)

I won’t give my second whole class until Tuesday, and that means I can procrastinate a bit :tongue:; so I guess I’ll spend half of the rest of the day taking looks at how the elections in both Spain and Russia are going. The other half will be devoted to the 10th version of Callitoes Collectanea. I can give you a clue to try to guess what it will be about: version “10th” is version “X” too… :mrgreen:

Yup, the show must go on. And thanks a lot to all of you who e-mailed me asking how my family of Madrid and myself were. We are shocked, as everyone, but safe and grateful for receiving so many kind messages… I love you all too: I don’t say that as often as I should, but I do… :luv: =)
