hereafter (movie)

January 30, 2011

the weather this weekend was not nice at all. we could only watch a movie at the cinema and spent time mostly at home. as you can see the pictures below, i collect tickets from almost all movies i have watched since 2005 and put them in this cute wooden box. i also collect ticket from concerts i have watched, from the museums i have visited, or anything that i can keep as a memory. in the 5th picture shows my collections. i think i have to organize them but i still have no idea how.

talking about movie, we watched ¨Hereafter¨, another masterpiece movie by Clint Eastwood. if you watch the trailer, you might think that it's a thriller but it's not. it's a thoughtful movie and i can tell you that it's terrific. the casts are just perfect and they did amazing job. my favorite part was the cooking class. it's sensual and a bit erotic. definitely i will watch this movie again but in original version (we watched it in spanish).

el tiempo este fin de semana no fue nada agradable. sólo pudimos ver una película en el cine y pasamos mucho tiempo en casa. como se puede ver debajo, colecciono las entradas del cine de casi todas películas wue había visto desde 2005 y las pongo en esta caja de madera tan mona. también colecciono entradas de los conciertos que había visto, entradas de los museos que había visitado, o cualquier cosa que pueda tener como un recuerdo. en la quinta foto demuestra mis colecciones. Creo que tengo que organizarlas, pero todavía no tengo ni idea cómo.

hablando de cine, vimos ¨Más allá de la vida¨, otra obra maestra de Clint Eastwood. si veis el trailer, podeis pensar que se trata de un thriller, pero no lo es. es una película reflexiva/profunda y os puedo decir que es excelente. los actores son perfectos y hicieron gran trabajo. mi parte favorita fue la clase de cocina. es sensual y un poco eótica. definitivamente voy a ver esta película otra vez pero en versión original (lo vimos en español).
our cooking arts:
1. steak with caramelized onions and roasted potatoes (made by pascual)
2. congri rice/rice with beans and avocado (made by me)

nuestras artes de cocina:
1. solomillo con cebollas caramelizadas y patatas asadas (hecho por pascual)
2. arroz congrí o arroz con frijoles y aguacate (hecho por )

strange feeling

January 24, 2011

that's what i feel now after my brackets were removed this evening. well, i feel very very happy too. i can't stop smiling. i remember two and half years before how my teeth looked like. i have a small jaw and big teeth, so 1/4 of my teeth needed to be removed. it was a torture.

eso es lo que me siento ahora, después de me lo quitaron está tarde el aparato que llevaba. bueno, me siento muy y muy feliz también. no puedo dejar de sonreír. recuerdo que dos años y medio antes como estaban mis dientes. tengo una mandíbula pequeña y los dientes grandes, por lo que me tuvieron que quitar un 1/4 de los dientes. fue una tortura.

they're crazy

January 23, 2011

pascual and his friend, jose luis, went to the ¨Picos de Europa¨ at 6 o'clock in the morning, sunday morning. of course, i'm not as crazy as they are, i stayed in bed 'till 10. 
he came home at 5 o'clock in the evening and showed me the pictures that he and his friend took during the adventure. after seeing the pictures, i chose these 3 to show you how crazy they are. 

Pascual y su amigo, José Luis, fueron a los Picos de Europa a las 6 de la mañanadomingo por la mañana. por supuesto, no estoy tan loca como ellos, me quedé en la camahasta las 10.
llegó a casa a las 5 de la tarde y me mostró las fotos que él y su amigo tomaron durante la aventura. deapués de ver las fotos, elegí estas tres imágenes para mostrar lo locos que están.


read more books

January 19, 2011

normally, i don't read much but this year i will try to read more. i read books in english and in spanish. 
i read in english because if i don't, i know one day i will forget it completely. actually, i'm starting to forget my english. for example, i have problems in writing posts for my blog. maybe you notice some grammar mistakes in my posts, therefore any correction is welcomed.
moreover, i should also read in spanish to practise and to improve my vocabulary. at the moment, i'm reading ¨La elegancia del erizo¨. for me, this is such a hard book to read; too many complicated words. i hope this book is worth reading. 
the next 5 more books for me to read:
-¨To kill a mocking birds¨ by Harper Lee
-¨The right attitude to rain¨ by Alexander McCall Smith
-¨The great gatsby¨ by F. Scott Fitzgerald
-¨En lugar seguro¨ by Wallace Stegner
-¨The miracle at speedy motor¨ by Alexander McCall Smith

any other suggestions perhaps?
