duare: (tea)
But we are all well  aware of my fondness for procrastination. So I was thinking is this lovely remedy that I discovered years ago for the sleepless nights. It's an herbal tea, gorgeous scent and even more gorgeous taste.
It's called Sleepytime from Celestial Seasoning.

The thing is, you drink it, you sleep, there's no turn around. So I shouldn't drink tonight, you know. Because I'm supposed to write til my phalanges fall or my eyes just blow up. But it's been so long since I had a nice cuppa of Sleepytime... 
Well, we will see...

Just remember, if you are sleep deprived, give it a try!

duare: (bloqueo escritor)
Y como ando procrastinando, me duele el cuello una barbaridad, no me apetece hacer nada a parte de sofá-manta-peli y mucho no escribir las 4000 words que llevo de retraso, pues curioseo la flist.

Y como la señorita [livejournal.com profile] helenadax ha colgado un video trekkie K/S yo he pensado en colgar uno K/M (y así ya de paso que pierdo el tiempo, también fangirleo)

Pues eso...

The night you came into my life
well it took the bones of me, took the bones of me
You blew away my storm and strife
And shook the bones of me, shook the bones of me
By the way, I do know why you stayed away
I will keep tongue-tied next time

duare: (ST: Sulu confusing life)
So about the Nanowrimo? I'm just gonna say one word: fuck!
duare: (daniel not happy)
Sigh... I've been neglecting LJ so much lately. But really, I blame my muse(or the lack of her) and tumblr!
For once, my muse has been kicking my ass and I've been struggling so much with the [livejournal.com profile] dream_exchange , thankfully she's back and I'm on writing mood and it's all working all right.
I've also been avoiding Lj because... well, if I can't write I punish myself with no reading time either.
And then there's tumblr and if you have a tumblr account you know what I mean, and if you don't avoid it like the devil itself, because really, it suck your whole soul...

OH! Por cierto... participantes del [livejournal.com profile] aisinfronteras ,  ¿cómo llevamos los fics/arts? Que sepáis que os quedan 3 semanas y 5 días, ¿eh? ¿Eeh? ¿Eeeeeh?
duare: (Default)
Sorry for the delay, but I've been busy with other net-workings stuff, in this case my blog and the [livejournal.com profile] aisinfronteras  account and sign-ups, but here we are again. Doing another big catch up of several days.

Day 13 A fictional book ~ Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Do I need to say anything else?
Day 14 A non-fictional book ~  Invictus by  John Carling
It's the last one I've read and I loved it, I love the mix of politics, history and sport awesomeness. It made me feel a hurricane of emotions and that's what a good book should do.
Day 15 A fanfic ~ Just one? Ok, I'm going to say THE ONE that got me down the rabbit hole: Irresistible Poison by Rhyssen And 7 years after I read it, I'm still into fandom
Day 16 A song that makes you cry (or nearly) ~ Lux Aeterna by Clint Mansell
Gods... that song! Every single time I listen it is like the first time all over again. My skin all goose bumped, and be still oh heart of mine!

Day 17 An art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.) ~Lake Keitele by Akseli Gallen-Kallela.
Amazing piece of art... It'  just look at it and I feel calm again. I have an small print, bur one of these days I'm going to buy the biggest print ever, one of my white walls on my room is waiting for it actually.
duare: (Default)
Arggg... I'm so regretting starting this meme thingy-thing. But I'm going to do it, oh hell yes!
So here we go, the past five days:

Day 08 A photo that makes you angry/sad )

Day 09 A photo you took )

Day 10 A photo of you taken over ten years ago )

Day 11 A photo of you taken recently )

Day 12 - A photo that makes me laugh )

30 Days Meme - 12 done, 18 to go! )
duare: (amused sga)
Day 06 ~ Whatever tickles your fancy or "food/aliment I could eat non-stop and never be tired of": olives!!!!!

Day 07 ~ A photo that makes you happy: taken at the last New Year's Eve party (and the year before). I love to spend a few days with that bunch of crazy people, I love them all and I miss them so much, so every year I look forward to that meet up

30 days meme - 7 done, 23 to go! )
duare: (sarcasm)
Day 05 ~ Your favorite quote:  "No hands, no cookies" (or as it says in Spanish: "no hay manos, no hay galletas")
It's from a very bad-tasteful joke,  about a kid asking his mother for some cookies, the mother refuse to give him one again and again and again and tell him to pick one by himself if he wants it so much. The kid then say to his mother that he can't because he has no hands and well, the mother's answers is  "no hands, no cookies".
I know is cruel and not funny at all if you really think about it. But for me and my friends, when we were at secondary school and we were told it, it became a way to see the world soon enough. It was more a mantra than a joke. For us it meant that if we wanted something we must get it by ourself, because nobody is going to fight our battles.

30 days meme - 5 done, 25 to go! )
duare: (Lizzy LOL)
Day 04 ~ Your favorite book:  Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

"Is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters."

I've read it a dozen of times, both in English and Spanish and it never seems to bore me, I love it. Austen prose in this book is one of the more hilarious things ever.
Oh! And the BBC adaptation is superb!

"Too many ladies..." LOL

30 days meme - 4 done, 26 to go! )
duare: (SG1)
Day 03 ~ Your favorite television program: Stargate SG1
Most awesome science fiction TV show ever. It might not be the best and plot complexity thing, but girl! This is a damn fun series!
And I've been watching it for year with my parents. So you ask me about a TV show and I say SG1, that's a sure thing.

30 days meme - 3 done, 27 to go )
duare: (princesa prometida)
Because I'm going to spend tomorrow and most of Saturday on the beach with the family...

Day 02 ~ Your favorite movi
e:  Rebecca by Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock
Because what's not to love on that movie? Really.

30 days meme - 2 done, 28 to go )
duare: (autumn rail way)
It really was a matter of time before I did it. And as it seems, now I'm bored enough (or I have other things to do and I'm procrastinating because I just don't want to or don't feel like doing them )
So here we are.

Day 01 ~ Your favorite song: U2 -  But I still haven't found what I was looking for  (or any other song from the Joshua's tree album, actually)

30 days meme - 1 done, 29 to go )
