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. 🙂

As I only have 5 hours of work per week this month and I have to stay at home to supervise the workers job in our bathroom (the whole appartment is upside down and in a mess, by the way), I thought that I might as well tell you all my average day dealing with boredom :tongue:.

I am transcribing my sms from the phone memory to a notebook, by hand.

I’m reading ramdom pages of Polish Grammar books and a history book I bought in Pontevedra last week (love it! It’s about diseases -including mental issues- in the Spanish Royal family from the XVI to the XVIII century :geeked:)

I’m browsing the Internet checking, searching and founding.
Here’s the list of the pages I have currently open (yep: all at the same time)

  • Círculo escéptico: Asociación para la difusión del pensamiento crítico — Yo también opino que el principal mal del mundo es el analfabetismo en todas sus facetas, y por mucho que me pese, no creo que nos hayan visitado extraterretres inteligentes nunca…
  • Hotscripts: Everybody knows this one (or should, at least) — Looking for stuff to add to my sites and my enterprise project :mrgreen:.
  • Childrens Book Online: The name says it all — I always prefered children orientated books, honestly; they are usually better in both stylistic and plot issues… Less idiotic, let’s say.
  • El Principio (sociológico) de Peter: (aplicado al diseño) — Es la repera, y tan cierto… Como muestra, su enunciado: “En una jerarquía, todo empleado tiende a ascender hasta su nivel de incompetencia” Laurence J. Peter
  • La symbolique: (dans Harry Potter) — Assez intéressant, í  vrai dire.
  • All things kawaii: ¡Aiiii, que riquiño! :pray:
  • Hillary Clinton: Support Hillary Clinton and even organise a Host a Hillary House Party – Yes, I am *that* bored :smh:. También está en español, por cierto.
  • Wikipedia: I searched for hepatitis c, bicicleta, Svetlana Boguinskaia, cafeína, etc., etc.
  • DoLOREM ipsum…: yes… I am that idle… Again :whistle:.

And I do some flips from time to time to avoid my legs and brain getting numbed :dance:.

(And I’m missing my beloved Extremadurian so much… :eh:)

  1. :mrgreen: I’m guessing most of the diseases mentioned in that very book are of sexually transmitted nature. My Spanish history prof used to drop remarks concerning the sexual preferences of the European royalty here and there to keep us listening. He said the Bourbon line at the Spanish court (any court) was the “worst”. One time he was going: “When Isabella II. was forced to leave the country she mourned ‘Oh, I thought I had ‘struck deeper roots’ in Spain’…. well, a lot of Spaniards had struck roots in HER, but… *shrug*” – that man is at least 75 years old and a living example for the term “viejo verde” (what is it that makes these things the easiest to remember?). But his command of all Spanish dialects,
    Portuguese and at least 10 other European languages plus large bits of Chinese and Arabic was really awe-inspiring. He insisted we should learn at least 5 languages to “open doors” when abroad. And he’s right, my Polish flatmate learning new expressions and terms makes me so proud of her every time we talk. Muah! :dance: 😳

    Other than that, I share the idleness. *slacks around*

    These days I wonder whether the whole concept of global warming is a big fat lie. It’s gotten so cold within the last week with no real summer beforehand. Hmpf. But then I’m the ultimate autumn child – love the fog over the fields and the fallen leaves making the pavement slippery. :luv:

    Weariness got the best of me by now and I better stop. Wish you a fresh new nice and shiny week in Poland! 🙂

  2. I’m particularly interested in the Austria (Habsburgo) dinasty. They were not as promiscuous as the Borbons, but almost x)
    There were several real love stories in that family, and most of the queens died giving birth =(
    I also enjoy reading about them because some were painted by my beloved Velázquez :smile:.

    It seems that you are really enjoying your Spanish stuff lessons. Great!
    I envy you quite a lot. I’ve forgot the little German I knew and I don’t know when I will be able to take it up again :neutral:.

    And yeah: amazingly shiny but also really cold here in Poland too :sick:.

  3. No, no soy extremeña, y de hecho no se me había perdido nada por Extremadura hasta hace unos meses… Supongo que ahora soy extremeña “por parte de novio” :tongue:
    Lo que decía en la entrada es que echaba de menos a mi extremeño (qué mal me suena el posesivo ese, pero bueno :razz:).

    Soy bastante gallega, por cierto.
