I rarely buy manga’s and when I do I am very picky, cause they are a bit expensive. I’m more focused on buying completed manga’s, so I won’t have any surprises in the future.

But I broke my rule and bought the first 5 volumes from Yotsuba&!. And I’m glad that I did so because it seems the manga was written especially for me. It has all the things that I like, crazy neighbours, a lot of ice cream, a lot of running and going on “daily adventures” and even guinea pigs.

In fact, I’m actually looking around the Internet looking for the anime, if it’s out or not, if it’s for sale or not, if they deliver to Romania or not and so on. I’ve only read the first 3 volumes, I’m keeping the other two for the weekend so I can enjoy them properly.

By the way I now miss my guinea pigs. T_T


Lewis Carroll

Since last week was very stressful because of work, this week I decided it’s time to take it slow.

So what better way to relax than reading a book. The only hard part is choosing what book to read. Since all the public libraries are closed till October, my only options are my own books, and I don’t have that many books. 

I just picked randomly and I started reading The Complete Illustrated Lewis Carroll. It was a present from my brother and his wife for my birthday this year. I don’t think I ever read Alice in Wonderland in English.

But what caught my attention were the illustrations, which were rather freaky, well some of them.

And I also remebered reading about the new “twisted” version of  “Alice in Wonderland” by Tim Burton. Well after seeing the illustrations and re-reading the story again, I think it will be a spot on remake.

Actually I can’t wait to hear Helena Bonham Carter scream her lungs out “OFF WITH HIS HEAD!”.


Emma in Teen Vogue

Oh wow, both Emma Watson and Alexis Bledel have come out with new photos. Ain’t I lucky.

Emma will appear in the August number of Teen Vogue magazine and she’s on the cover as well. Click this to go to Teen Vogue website for more details and for all the photos. I just picked my favorite pics of her. Trust me it wasn’t easy, since she looks amazing in every one of them.

The air conditioner dilema

I’m thinking that most people that work in a small space with a lot of co-workers had some issues with the air conditioner at one point or another.

I’m not against working with the air conditioner on, but in the past 2-3 weeks my left eye has been twitching like crazy. It’s pretty annoying to say the least. And I’m not the only one that has a problem because of the A.C. Another co-worker has a really bad cold and it seems like he’s never going to get better.

And all this because we have a third co-worker who, no matter how cold it is in the office, she’s always hot and always complaining about it. Seriously, she turned the A.C. on and set it at 20 degrees C. And guess who was feeling the cold air. ME!!! It pisses me off cause when the air was focused only on her working area, she complains that she might get a cold, but she doesn’t want it turned off, just repositioned.  

In fact, it seems that whenever someone mentions her name, my blood tension rises. I could go on and start complaining about her, but she’ not worth the effort. It would be just wonderful if I could just ignore her existence completely. But, as things are right now, that’s not possible.
