Avem asteptari prea mari cand intram in relatii, de tot felul, nu doar in iubire. Avem impresia ca oferim totul si ca nu primim suficient, ca noi suntem in centrul universului si ca de fapt suntem unicii care iubesc, care ofera, care suntem raniti, care suferim, toti ceilalti sunt egoisti, rai, nemernici …

Si nu vom reusi niciodata sa privim altfel lucrurile, intotdeauna vom avea asteptari si intotdeauna vom suferi, cu totii. Atunci cand lucrurile vor sta altfel, cred ca vom atinge culmea altruismului, … sau vom minti.

Zilele trecute vorbeam pe messenger cu un tip despre cum ne folosesc oamenii, cum ajutam si nu primim nici macar un telefon inapoi, de ce trebuie sa asteptam mereu ‘something in return’? De ce nu putem oferi doar de dragul de a oferi, de ce nu putem ajuta fara sa asteptam un ‘multumesc’, de ce nu putem iubi fara sa regretam mai tarziu?


Mi s-a spus de curand ca sunt boema, intr-un context oarecum profesional dar care atinge multe aspecte legate de cum sunt eu, de ce sunt eu. De ce trebuie sa existe o ocazie ca sa oferi bomboane, (asta o sa-i placa lui Gelu :D) de ce trebuie sa existe o ocazie ca sa primesti un cadou, de ce trebuie sa fie ziua ta ca sa primesti o felicitare, de ce trebuie sa sarbatoresti ceva anume ca sa oferi pricomigdale :), e ca si cum … de ce trebuie sa fie soare ca sa zambesti?

Mie imi place sa ofer, indiferent ce, bomboane, felicitari, carti, zambete, jucarii, si multumesc acelei divinitati care m-a facut in felul asta, sa nu astept nimic dupa ce ofer, si sa ma bucur mai mult, si mai mult, de fiecare data cand o fac.

A nu se intelege ca nu am asteptari, doar ca le mai temperez si stau mai mult cu picioarele pe pamant … cred … 🙂

Astazi am citit, si am ascultat povesti cu care am crescut. E adevarat ca imi lipseste pick-up-ul — si ca am rugat-o pe mama sa nu dea la anticariat discurile vechi — dar povestile astea au acelasi farmec, chiar daca sunt in format mp3 si le ascult in winamp.

Una din povestile care mi-a placut mult este “Cei trei muschetari”, poveste, sau piesa, din cauza careia de fapt nu am putut niciodata sa citesc cartea :). De fiecare data cand o ascult descopar noi intelesuri, si realizez cat de mult m-a impresionat cand eram copil.

Mai jos sunt cateva citate din piesa care mi-au placut mult, si o sa incerc sa pun povestea si pe trilulilu, sa o ascultati si voi de va va face placere.




Fii credincios cuvantului dat, dar nu ti-l da cu usurinta,

Prietenii n-au nevoie, dusmanii nu-l merita

Nu alerga dupa glorie, dar nici nu fugi de ea

Fa in asa fel, incat oricand sa te insoteasca de la sine

Mai bine sa-ti sangereze pielea, decat sa-ti roseasca obrazul

Mai bine leu mort, decat caine viu

Pleaca-te capului, nu palariei





– … sunt lucruri care nu se pot vinde, pentru ca sunt de neinlocuit,

– Ce lucruri?

– Onoarea, prietenia, dragostea

mancarica de ardei


Super buna, complimente bucatarului

Si ca bonus, salata de vinete cu ceapa si cu maioneza si bere timisoareana, asa ca sa fie rasfatul complet. Acum, ciocolata After Eight, putin blogging si perspectivele unei seri perfecte de vineri se contureaza incet dar sigur.

Din pacate nu am reusit sa ajung la Motoare, Danut, s-a trezit prea tarziu, si desi imi plac surprizele, de data asta nu s-a putut aranja 😛


In rest, ma asteapta un weekend plin de tot 😛

so long, London

Following my last experience flying out of Heathrow Airport, I took SOME time before the flight. Robin was so nice to drive me to Terminal 2 and although the flight is only at 12:30, I arrived here at around 9:15. The check in for Tarom was just open so I got the chance to chose my seat (window, you are right:)). The security check went very smoothly this time, but I had to get rid of my jacket, get rid of the shoes, luckily I do not wear a belt or some other metals and so I did not need to strip there, ugh …

After all this was done … free shopping time 😀


I spoiled myself this time, a lot :D, I had the time, the money, the opportunity, so … you have to understand that I am not a shopping maniac and that I usually do not buy things just for buying, but now was the first time when I could actually afford to buy a perfume, the perfume I liked, and this not by counting the money or renouncing the chocolates, it feels so good 😀


So yes, I spent some money, but it was worth every penny 😛


And now, I’m just waiting in the airport, waiting for them to announce the gate for my Tarom flight, and wondering what other shops are still around to visit :P. I just called Delia to ask her if she still wants that book of … God I forgot his name, … for Emad, but she didn’t answer, so I’ll just ask anyway 🙂 and … maybe I’ll try some Harry Potter literature as everybody was talking about how good are the books and that the movies are just a touch of those, so … who knows what else I’ll buy until departure.


This is it now, more tonight, from home.


[later update]


of course I found the book shop 🙂

I did not find Stephen Covey for Delia, but I bought the second book from the series of Harry Potter, … the Chamber of Secrets, I bought a book of Paulo Coelho I did not see in Romania – although I would preferred The Witch of Portobello that in Romania is not yet published – as I did not find it, I bought this Like the Flowing River, a collection of short stories that I like already. What else … I bought one of those easy, commercial books, like the american soap opera series inspired by Cosmopolitan and another one that just seemed very interesting from the synopsis, combining some adventure, mysticism, fantasy and some crime probably. So, although I have at home five books still waiting on the shelf, I added four more today, as the summer is over, the fall will pass very fast, and as they say, the winter is always long … let’s just say that I’m preparing for those cold, winter nights 🙂 not to mention that I also bring with me home a box of fine English tea … for those evenings also.
