This time, though, I'm taking unityofeffect

"When you read the book," says Pattinson, looking appropriately pallid and interesting even without makeup, "it's like, 'Edward Cullen was so beautiful I creamed myself.' I mean, every line is like that. He's the most ridiculous person who's so amazing at everything. I think a lot of actors tried to play that aspect. I just couldn't do that. And the more I read the script, the more I hated this guy, so that's how I played him, as a manic-depressive who hates himself. Plus, he's a… Continue

BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS.
1. And you thought "Albus Severus Potter" was the most godawful name in the story of literature? Meet the lovely Renesmee Carlie Cullen!
2. Stephenie Meyer is the only author who can pull off several sex scenes, a pregnancy and a birth without mentioning not even once words like "vagina", "breast", "penis" or "uterus". Not even euphemisms. Oh, wait, there's, I think, one occasion on which the word "breast" is used: when the little… Continue

The movie script of doom isn't letting me write much else at the moment, so the next installment in the noble and fine chronicles of my London Odissey shall have to wait a while.
There is, however, some time for a little divertimento, in the shape of this survey. Gabrielle tagged me, and I'll just copy her layout (I hope you don't mind) because I'm too lazy to come up with my own.
*Pick any celebrity or fictional character for each… Continue

Foreword: Welcome to the wholly illustrated memoir of my trip to London! A short warning, though: Two days before Thursday, that is, D-Day itself (D for Departure), I got sick. Strep throat, with some mild fever and general illnes. Also, some spectacular throwing up (all the more because I'd had tomato soup for lunch). This might add some suspense to the story (will she make it to the airport? will she faint at customs?) if it weren't for the fact that you already know I did make it to London,… Continue

As you may or you may not know, I only just returned this afternoon from an AWESOME long weekend in London, and seeing how most of what I did there is nerdfighter-related, I decided I'd add a blog post about each day. So stay tuned if you want to find out more about:

Little He-Cheese and I were supposed to meet this afternoon to go shopping. And he stood me up. Just like he did when we were dating. He called in the morning, whined a bit about a ridiculously hot friend who hadn't called when he said he would and about what a terrible headache he had last night and then said he wasn't in the mood for doing anything and he'd call me tomorrow. And. Had. The. Nerve. To. Hang. Up. As. If. This. Was. Acceptable.
Sorry, darling, but this is FAR from… Continue

Today Marc left for summer camp. We're all edgy because he'll be gone for ten days, and it's the first time he's away from home for such a long time.
Marc is my only sibling. He is eleven years old, and to say that I love him to pieces would be the understatement of the century.
He was a surprise, both to my parents, who, in their early forties, thought they'd already done their share to contribute to the world's
population with a bespectacled and nerdy… Continue

Oh, Gabrielle, your comment to my last blogpost came at the worst, or rather the best possible time.
If you've been keeping up with the nimble drama that's been unfolding in this blog over the last couple of posts and were even mildly interested by it, you're in for a treat. It concerns my insane and hugely unhealthy crush on a hero-god-angel-like in-all-things-utter-perfection university professor, and how he, to his defense, totally unawarely, ripped out my heart and ate the bloody… Continue

Last Saturday, I went home barefoot.
Let me explain myself, lest you think I was brutally mugged and stripped even of my footwear, or that I had to run away from some imaginary prince and lost both
shoes in the attempt.
I went to celebrate a friend's birthday. Seeing how I had to meet people I hadn't seen in a while, I wanted to look nice (also, I was looking forward to meeting some friend's friends, who turned out to be rather dull engineers whose clothing seems to… Continue

So my ex-boyfriend, whom, from now on, we'll refer to as "Little He-Cheese" (long story, but I just refuse to acknowledge the man with whom I spent almost six years of my life and who was supposed to be the father of my children and the co-owner of my dog with such an expeditive word like "ex-boyfriend") called today to tell me he had a date tonight with a girl he fancies.
Ho. Nobody freak out. I meant it when I said we wanted to stay an important part of each-other's life, and we've… Continue

Over the last months, I've detected an increasing tendency in the general international media to portray Americans as a thoroughly stupid people. Videos such as what I will refer to as "The Kelly Pickler Incident
" ("I'd heard about Turkey, but HUNGARY?
"), or those Julian Morrows interviews for CNNN
. And I have to say I find it confusing. I am pretty sure that, on average,… Continue

If you haven't had a fairly close cultural (for lack of another word) relationship with Europe, then you are most likely not familiar with the Eurovision festival. So I hope those who do know what this is all about will forgive me for giving a brief explanation:
The festival was created a few decades ago to promote a certain sense of unity between all European countries, and I guess they thought the best way to bring together such different cultures was through the universal language… Continue

I was overwhelmed at all the marvelous comments that I received over the last week in response to my very melodramatic post about my sentimental breakup. Thank you for your lovely words of encouragement and love, it was the very best balm for my poor, fractured heart, which now is less so because of you.
And that has been... surprising. I will be honest: I never thought "real" emotions could be transmitted over the internet. Strangers we meet by means of forums and communities such… Continue

...is a word of the English language that I am particularly fond of. Not because of its meaning in itself, more because of how it phonetically manages to convey it.
If you have dutifully watched my latest NFI video, then you know where the aforementioned grief comes from. After five years, ten months and eleven days since we started dating, my boyfriend and I decided we can no longer be a couple. There was no dumping, no betrayal, no sugarcoating. We reached the same conclusion at… Continue

Even if I had to beg for it, I'm finally allowed to play the tag game! Go, undignified me!
1. I speak five languages fluently.
Catalan, Spanish, English, German and French. Okay, so that's probably not very impressive, but I'm proud of it. I adore languages. I love being able to communicate with people from different countries and cultures. I marvel at the way different tongues work and what they have in common. Other than for traveling, my polylinguism has gotten… Continue

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
admit impediment. Love is not love
which alters when it alteration finds,
or bends with the remover to remove;
O no! It is an ever-fixed mark
that looks on tempests and is never shaken.
It is the star to every wandering bark,
whose worth's unknown although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
within his bending sickle's compass come.
Love alters not with his brief… Continue

If you haven't seen "Juno" yet, what are you waiting for? It is a movie full of nerdfighter characters and nerdfighter trouble, and a very nerdfighter attitude in all. The people behind it are in all likelihood nerdfighters who made a movie about their nerdfighter interests (punk music from the eighties, orange Tic-Tacs, italian masters of gore) and put them, all tongue-in-cheek, in a movie that is now in the running for the best pictue Academy Award. It is not the best movie of all time,… Continue

So I was walking to work this morning (lately, the events in my life most worthy of being blogged about seem to always happen on the way to work), and I went past these two men who presumably worked in the nearby factory and were taking a well-deserved break. As I walked past them, my ears plugged safely with my earphones, and my step brisk (because I was late), one of them said "Niña, qué bonita eres
", which roughly translates into "You aren't half pretty,… Continue

The Blair Witch Project + The War of the Worlds ( - Tom Cruise) * (Godzilla/Alien)
You may like it, you may hate it, but nobody can deny the fact that this movie is a) More post-modern than post-modernism itself, b) Frickin' brilliant and c) Scary as hell, despite the fact that someone might tell you it's not when you inquire about it minutes before the beginning of the film.
