The last pages of a great book...
Monday, December 28, 2009

I only have about ten pages I can read before the whole Twilight saga has come to an end, unfortunately. I really didn't know what all the buzz was about, until I watched the first two movies back to back while being ill and then picked up the books and then I was hooked. I read a few gossip sites and while I wasn't interested in the whole R-Patz/K-Stew shite but now I AM!!!

And I'm not even in their demograph, I'm such a nerd! I have a week off from work so I'm just gonna lounge a bit, hang around at home and find a good NY-eve party to go to.

Oh, and my Christmas was GREAT, I hope yours was as delightful as mine.

A random pic of Joe Gordon! totally dug 500 days of Summer. It had cute, believable actors, nice graphic effects and it's a realistic love story... I say go see!

After this, a rant about my mom. Ugh. ;-)

My mom has been having really foul moods for the last 6 months or longer and it's beginning to freak me out. It's really a grave's atmosphere in her and her boyfriend's house, my mom lies in bed, watching tv and her bf's sitting downstairs watching soccer games or something. There is NO LOVE out there. We don't hang out that often either, I don't know we just kind of drifted apart after her second divorce and her acting all weird. I was in uni at the time, so while I did my best to comfort her I had to choose me and not let me get sucked in like I did after she divorced my dad.

Last weekend I had to pick her up, cause it was snowing and she went by tram. After she got in me car she told me she had to swing by her brother, my uncle who's just a lost case (a sweet one, but lost) and she had to give him some money. That was fine by me. When we gave him some dough she asked me to swing by another uncle to give him some Christmas cake. I said no, 'cause we were all over the place with all the ice on the road and I didn't like to drive when it's a damn slip 'n slide out there. So, I told her that and she told me she didn't like to drive either and then I asked, if she didn't want to drive herself in this weather, why was she making me drive all over town?! Sjeesj.

That afternoon we were sewing my drapes at her place and she started to cry and tell me how she couldn't take it anymore and that she just wanted peace and nobody to bother her. We have quite a big family, and while some are very succesful, businessmen, pilots, athletics and entrepeneurs, some of the members are the exact opposite. And lots of people ask my mom for favors, and it has been that way all my life. My dad has always said my mom let her own family come before our family.

So when she started wailing I told her people keep asking her to do stuff for her 'cause she's been doing them all her life without letting them know her boundaries. I told her that nobody could smell she wasn't up for running their darn errands, and that she should tell them she couldn't/wouldn't do them and why. And then she told me she never asks anybody for anything and that she doesn't understand why other people do. Of course I told her that she asked me to drive in the snow and ice to two uncles, while it's unsafe and not a pleasure at all to drive that morning. And that if I hadn't told her I wouldn't do it, she wouldn't have known and therefore she should TELL people what's on her mind.

You know what she said: "But this was just an incident, I never ask you to do anything for me"
Woman? Nevermind.

I guess that makes me miss my dad even more.


Lots of more snow
Monday, December 21, 2009

It's been snowing so much, I think it's the thickest layer of whiteness I've ever seen in my life! (in this country)
It's beautiful but it sucks too, 'cause you can't go anywhere. I can't drive my car and I can't ride my bike and the buses and trams are staying in, too. B is such a daredevil he just hops in the car, so we've planned to go and go for a walk in the snow this afternoon.

Tumors, Schnee and TGIF!
Friday, December 18, 2009

A John pic, since I'm still grieving over the divorce;-)

I'm working from home today, due to the snow. It's great! I have a few stuff I really have to finish but after that, I have a 4-day weekend! After that 2 days of work, on Wednesday and Thursday, and Wednesday should be fun 'cause my partner in work-related crime and I are gonna celebrate our results after work, with a bunch of other people if they wanna come. Yay! We've won 2 big tenders in the last few months and that's really great considering the economy and the fact that we just begun working at this firm and have zero experience in this field. We have lots of fun together so it makes it extra special that we can also have great results.

Went to the neurosurgeon yesterday, with my uncle. He has to have the tumor removed at another hospital, so we have to wait 'till they contact us and then they'll get it out. The good part is that the tumor is quite far away from his motoric and speech areas so he thinks they can get 100% of the thing out of his head.

Went to Austria with my granny, mom, uncle, aunt and brother last weekend. We had a blast! We went sleighing and shopping in Salzburg and had an alround lovely time. I have pics but B has got the cable so I'll post whenever they're on my disk. Have a great Friday!

John has left
Wednesday, December 16, 2009

There were lots of rumors floating around the internet and well, I guess we can finally say for real, that John Frusciante has quit the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He has his own site (, where he does not post that often but today he has and it is what it is:

When I quit the band, over a year ago, we were on an indefinite hiatus. There was no drama or anger involved, and the other guys were very understanding. They are supportive of my doing whatever makes me happy and that goes both ways.

To put it simply, my musical interests have led me in a different direction. Upon rejoining, and throughout my time in the band, I was very excited about exploring the musical possibilities inherent in a rock band, and doing so with those people in particular. A couple of years ago, I began to feel that same excitement again, but this time it was about making a different kind of music, alone, and being my own engineer.

I really love the band and what we did. I understand and value that my work with them means a lot to many people, but I have to follow my interests. For me, art has never been something done out of a sense of duty. It is something I do because it is really fun, exciting, and interesting. Over the last 12 years, I have changed, as a person and artist, to such a degree that to do further work along the lines I did with the band would be to go against my own nature. There was no choice involved in this decision. I simply have to be what I am, and have to do what I must do.

Sending love and gratitude to you all.

It sucks but we have lots and lots of albums to listen to, plus he ain't quitting music so we have all of his solo shit and whatever else is gonna come. But it feels like a divorce.

This is me. 32-year old, mother of 1 and living in Europe. Going through life with one hell of a man, lots of love for my family and a pretty tight circle of mismatched friends. Very self-confident even though I don't know what the fuck I'm doing! (more)
