It’s Sunday and it’s raining. I just don’t get it. Why does the weekend has to be so bad and during the week the weather is great, sunny and warm.
Oh well I guess it could’ve been worse. Like for example. It could’ve rained yesterday, when Johnny turned on the lights in the city, the Christmas lights that is. It’s true, the lights were off, and when we got there I just pushed on Johnny’s hat and the lights went on.
It was crowded and we didn’t got to see them too well. But the lights we’ll be on till the end of December so we got plenty of time. But here’s a preview:
I just realised what happened this morning. And I came to the conclusion that I am an idiot. Well not all the time but in the mornings when I’m to tired to realise what I am doing.
Well let’s say it involved one of my favorite blouse, me and a pair of scissors. Like most of the women in the world, I didn’t knew what to wear this morning. And I had the brilliant idea to try on one of my favorite blouses. Well I got it on me, but I couldn’t zip it up. But that wasn’t the problem. Getting out of it was harder then getting it on. Let’s say that I tried all my options and even had Johnny trying to pull it off.
This is what I call desperate times, when sucking of the belly will do no good.
I got the scissors and just chopped it off. And straight to the garbage it went. And now I am at work and I woke up. I realised that I shouldn’t put on things randomly on me, I might get stuck that way.
Sometimes, you can find interesting articles in the news. And today is one of those days. On the first page of MSN it says “Teen lived without a heart while waiting for a new one“. As far as I knew, so far, if you don’t have life support that’s pretty hard.
So reading on, the article says that the girl “survived with artificial heart pumps — but no heart — for four months between the transplants” That is something.
Also, I remembered about this article about a baby that was “born” twice. I read this yesterday.
And, this is really old news, from last year. But I think it’s worth mentioning cause the smile on the little girl’s face says everything.
I read this last year in a newspaper and I still have the article saved at home in a journal. I am just amazed how much medicine has advanced till today.
But what’s more amazing then all of the above happened here, well not in my country, but at our neighbours that speak the same language.
So a guy goes to the doctor so he could get an infection treated. But he was just stunned when he read what the doctor wrote on the prescription. The 41 years old MALE was told, that, every 3 days he should do vaginal washings. Now, I don’t know about you guys out there, but as far as I know, men have only two holes, and no vagina.
Today is a big day for us all. Well, at least for the people in Bucharest that use public transportation.
We’ve been waiting this moment since 1989. I’m proud to say that they opened the new subway stations, 4 to be more precise. I know that it doesn’t sound like much, but they actually finished them, after 19 years. They were saying that the new stations would be finished by 2004 (I’ve found an online article about it, sadly it’s in Romanian), guess what were in 2008, what a shocker:
Well, since they opened it, we decided to try it and see what took them so long to finish them (besides not having money). So this morning, we woke up earlier and we went for it. People, pay attention, cause we’re making history here, cause we went on the first day, at the first hours of the morning (the sun wasn’t up).
I sincerely liked the fact that they actually used colors, green, yellow and orange. That’s an improvement, cause all the other stations are all grey and very depressing. But, there weren’t many people taking the subway at 6 in the morning, and like me and Johnny, most of them were curious about it.
The downside is that they used old trains, but if they aren’t broken why not use them. Plus I like the graffiti on them, it gives a nice touch.
And this is where the subway takes you:
Right outside Bucharest. In the first picture it says “Goodbye, have a nice trip” (with just two words). So there you have it, the new subway stations brought to you by yours truly.
I know that our public transportation doesn’t compare with the ones from Russia or even Japan, but I would rather have a nice quiet ride to work then to be pushed in the subway, or to forget where I am supposed to be going because I would feel like in a museum.
