I’m so looking forward for Wednesday. It’s been a very hard year at work. Being all the time with the same person at the same work space isn’t good, and if you don’t like your mate or if he’s a bullshiter it’s still worse. But thanks god I had a fight with this old man and I sorted out all my problems and fears. Alleluyah, he ain’t no more in me head! Boy, am I going to enjoy these five weeks.

Actually I don’t want to go anywhere ⎯ why should I go anywhere when I live in Barcelona. I’ll pay a visit to my parents and then I’ll stay in Bcn, at home, with the brand-new MacBook and connected all day now that I have internet for the first time ever. And if I go out, I’ll visit some of the places one must see in Barcelona and that I haven’t seen yet after eight years; or I’ll go and see Jack, help him with his next short film or have some cocktails in his bar.

And dates. Don’t forget the dates. Remember your doctor.

Spare water and soap by doing the dishes with used coffee. In the desert they do the wash up with sand.

This is what I've tried for hours to write on the "updates" section.

The bad part of listening music as it should be done is that if you don’t have noise-proved walls and if you live near motorbikes some other people listen that music too, and probably not enjoying it. On the news they always talk about the space a person should have, but sound doesn’t seem to be considered. Sounds invade other people’s personal space, up to the intimacy. Let’s try at least not to invade with useless noise.

Ears don’t have eyelids.

Last night sleep caught me while I was entering the NASA web site. The battery of the MacBook run out and 20 hours later when I turn it on I'm back at the space. I’ve just been downloading some pictures, so I can change the desktop. All day I’ve thinking about the idea of “Friday on Earth”. If someone asked me which is my favourite day of the week no doubt I’d say Friday. It’s always been. Friday was the best day during school. Everyone was in good mood, and today when school has turned into a Mon-Fri job, Friday still is a day when people come down to the kitchen and have a beer or two. I remember one day I saw a not very serious start of a fight, and what came to my mind and went out through my mouth was: “Don’t fight. It’s Friday.”

I wonder if Friday is the favourite day on Earth or if it’s only for a 10, a 25, a 50 or a 75 % of the six continents.

Today it was even a better Friday. FC Barcelona won the European Super Cup beating the UEFA champion Shakhtar Donetsk after another match of excellent football. How beautiful is this sport when is played by Barça. And it’s only the start of the season.

One hour later -There's more than one Paris.

Diary 2

August 28, 2009 - What object can never be stolen in an office? The clock. All the employees have always their eyes fixed on it. - I often remember that old joke by the French Coluche when I’m at work.
Sometimes I think of grabbing the clock of the kitchen I work in and change the time so we could get out earlier, say, at 7:00 instead of at 8:00. That would be just so great, even it the effort was useless, as we all have to punch out. But man, one hour. It feels like the most precious present one can get. Do you want a new dress? No. Do you want new shoes? No. A new mobile? A CD? A car? No, nein, non. Just give me one hour, and I’ll be the happiest man in this town.
It’s probably the proof that very few people work in a job they like.

Diary 1

August 27, 2009 - I'll try to write a bit now and then. I never entered a web page like this one and never had a blog so I don't really know how it works. About wireclub: it looks a nice site, but I don't understand how I can date a girl in Barcelona if only a few persons from Barcelona are chatting up on line. A good point: I doesn't look like a henhouse (gallinero) like some other chat sites.

Songs I would put on a road trip mix CD

Two of us (The Beatles)-La puerta de al lado (Los Rodríguez)-Alberto Caeiroren bisita (Ruper Ordorika).

Sous le soleil de México (Luis Mariano)-Have you ever seen the rain (Creedence Clearwater Revival)-Shibuya Station (Louise Attaque).
