Safe and sound!

Saí de Sutton na quarta feira às 7 da manhã, e depois da travessia Dover-Calais e uma noite bem dormida em Bordeaux Sud, eram 19 horas de ontem quando estacionei o Rover a rebentar pelas costuras frente a casa.

Uma nova etapa começa hoje!!!! Sigam-na aqui!!!!!

Adeus e até ao meu regresso

Carta aberta a Londres

Cara amiga, vou deixar-te! 1683 dias depois, largo-te da mão! Ou largas-me tu, talvez!

Cheguei com pouco mas acredita que saio com muitissimo.
Ao longo destes quase 4 anos e meio foram muitas as coisas que vi e que fiz, sonhos que realizei. Muito ficou por ver, por sentir, por conhecer.. mas nisso tu és madrasta, pois tens sempre algo novo a nascer em cada esquina.

Fiz erros de julgamento, decisões erradas e tropecei qb, mas nunca me decepcionaste, pois sei que a culpa nunca foi tua. Devia ter vivido mais perto de ti. Sei que por essa razão perdi muito do que tens para oferecer, perdi a convivência mais em privado com amigos que fiz e que levo no coração. Perdi tempo em empregos glamour mas chefiados por gente tacanha e sem visão. Podia ter feito mais e melhor, mas aprendemos com os passos que damos.
Nestes quase 5 anos ainda não foi desta que visitei o Design Museum, não fui ver um musical e pouco viajei para fora de Londres.

Muito fica para conhecer, mas como do futuro só Deus sabe, espero regressar para ver ainda mais.

Mas o mais importante de tudo é sair daqui com uma relação reforçada, um bebé lindo a caminho e amigos que sei que gostam de mim e eu de eles, e que com 100% de certeza que irei ver muito proximamente.

Quanto ao futuro mais próximo, acho que mereço umas mini-férias na praia e depois a ver vamos!!!

A todos os leitores, um muito obrigado pela vossa visita. Eu depois aviso onde me podem encontrar. Até lá, e como diz o outro, “deixem-me respirar”!

Fellow bloggers, be careful with what you write...

Sky - 1:54pm UK, Wednesday August 19, 2009
"A former Vogue cover girl has won the right to make Google reveal the identity of an anonymous blogger who called her a "skank".
Liskula Cohen, 37, was the target of a barrage of alleged insults on the Skanks in NYC blog. The Canadian-born model, determined to sue for defamation, launched a court bid in January to find out who was responsible.

In an unprecedented ruling, Manhattan Judge Joan Madden said Google must reveal the blogger's name, The Sydney Morning Post (SMP) reported. The judge said it was the blonde's right to take legal action against the author, who wrote on Google-owned, Live said. The search engine giant will now be forced to disclose the identity, presumably when the case next returns to court.

Judge Madden rejected claims by the blogger's lawyer that the comments were mere "trash talk" and only factual assertions could be considered libelous. Cohen told the New York Post: "When I saw that blog, it was awful. All I can say for this person is, I really, truly hope that they have more in their life than this." Her lawyer Steven Wagner hoped the decision would send a message that the internet was "not a free-for-all" and said: "Everybody is waiting to see who this coward is."

The blogger's lawyer Anne Salisbury warned the ruling would open the "floodgates" for anyone who has been the subject of a nasty comment online to take legal action.

In the news today... The nightmare of Afghan men!!!

On today's Metro there was a worrying piece of news that made me become very concerned about Afghan men...

"President Hamid Karzai has published a new law where men can now starve their wives if they refuse to have sex with him".

As great as this law may look for all men involved, I just had one question on my mind: How many Afghan men actually cook? :)

Quick note about London and skirts...

Two options to all the girls wearing tie-sized mini-skirts on public transport (train, tube, double decker buses):

a) When you are getting ready to leave your house, think about the amount of stairs/escalators you are going to go up/down during your journey and, if you think you will be slightly embarassed, change into something longer or tighter;

b) If you don't have a care in the world about strangers/pervs/the whole world (scratch the ones you don't fit in) and still want to go to work with THAT mini mini-skirt, then behave normally, walk normally... whatever you do, don't freak out.

Because it may happen to you what I saw today: A girl that, when confronted with a flight of stairs at Green Park station, decided the best way to prevent people from seeing underneath (which was not that difficult already), was to start running towards the stairs, so she could reach the top before anybody could have had time to reach the bottom of the stairs. It would have been a great idea if she hadn't tripped on a step and fall down head first (and bottoms up!), leaving everyone behind her to see much more than just a glimpse of her knickers...

PS - I read this morning that the weather people guaranteed Summer in London was starting today again. My soaked shoes/trousers/shirt beg to differ!

Song of the week #4

Justice are a French DJ duo (Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay) and they are hugely popular all over the world. I love their music and one of my favorite tracks is The Phantom Part II. It's an amazing rock/club piece, and I love it so much I had to put it on my Song Of The Week post.

However, as amazing as the track may be, it is nothing compared with what the Belgium geeks from Soulwax did to it!!! They transformed a 3 minute song into a 7 minute anthem!!!
It's like you taking your nice, fast, sporty Clio Williams to an underground garage and they made it into an Audi R8!!! That's how fucking good the track is!!!!

And if people were complaining I was arrogant about being in a shitty party if Jamie T was not on, then forget about ever attending a party if they don't play this!!!
