At 34

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

I’ve just turned 34. Yesterday.

Is it a sign?

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

The chair from my desk at home finally broke beyond any possible usage, after a month or two of suffering. I think it is another sign I should be losing some weight! God dammit, maybe one of these days I’ll get my thumb out of my ass and start exercising…

Al di Meola

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Last night we attended a brilliant show: Al di Meola live in Bucharest. Not much to say, really, because the show was indeed outstanding. Accompanied by (I’m sorry I didn’t get their names) an Italian on guitar, a Croatian on accordion and his old band matte Gumbi on percussion, Al proved again, although unnecessarily, that […]

April Updates

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

April 17 was the 5th anniversary of our marriage! Happy anniversary, honey! I know it’s a bit late, but better late than never 🙂 . Anyway, I didn’t forget about it (well, I did, we both did, but I was reminded by my mother-in-law, who called that morning to congratulate us), so we properly celebrated […]

Not quite news…

The law of the supermarket

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

On Saturday morning, around 11 o’clock, I was off to a local supermarket on a mission assigned by my wife Crenguţa: to get a list of prices for some 2 dozen products.

The Robert Plant concert

Monday, August 13th, 2007

The music, the sound quality, the light, the musicianship — they were all exactly how I expected. In other words: the show was great! The event management on the other side — typical for this fucking country: a complete mess.

Car Crash, continued

Monday, August 13th, 2007

I was promising you the story of the car crash. A little bit late, I know, but here it is. It’s probably better to start with the picture. On the following satellite view lifted from Google Maps I’ve overlaid a small blue car and arrow to represent me and my direction of driving. The red […]
