In Memoriam...

Lilith aka pink_gloomy  (1983 -2011)

Happiness and grief.
Two words.
Two twins that never go apart.

Last week I buried one of my best friends. My soulmate. I miss her so much already. It's still not really sunk in that's she's gone, forever. So mayn things I wanted to say. So many things we wanted to do. She's at a better place now. I hated to see her suffer. But still... I feel alone right now. It's like a little hole in your heart and it keeps aching but you can't do anything against it... There's this line I keep thinking about because it's so true:

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. 
Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.

May she rest in peace. With all my love.

Writer's Block: Meaningful Words

What is your favorite quote? And why?
I believe in truth, beauty, freedom, but above all things I believe in love. - Moulin Rouge
I think those are the things that everyone should believe in - and love is so important. To love others and to be loved. Life would be awful and very lonely and meaningless without love.

The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits. - Albert Einstein.
It's true, unfortunately. And sad, concerning out society. But still a smart comment.

Luciano Pavarotti

Above all, I am an opera singer. This is how people will remember me.
- Luciano Pavarotti

Yesterday one of the greatest artists of our century died. Luciano Pavarotti. I know most of you aren't that much into classical music but I adored his voice. His "Nessum Dorma" is my all-time favourite. I will really miss him. A pity I never got to see/hear him live.

Writer's Block: Time Travel

If you could travel back in time to spend a day with someone, who would it be and why?

Rudolf Nureyev. I always wanted to see him dance live, but he died in 1993 (I was 9 at that time). He's said to to have a very strong and complicated personality and I adore his passion and dedication for his profession. It would just be interesting to get an insight into the life of a dancer, especially someone so popular and hard-working as he was. And to see the man behind the superstar. He did so much for ballet dancing (like new choreography) and he gave so much pleasure to his audiences. Apart from that, he was an exile - spending all his life being on the road. I would love to talk about that too. it must have been both physically and mentally exhausting.

more gifts for me!

My lovely friend Juana from Spain was in Vienna this week but we were both so busy that we couldn't meet. But she somehow managed to sneak in today and put a little gift and a note in my mailbox while I was at work! How sweet is that?! It was a pretty green fan with floral pattern. So cute!

Off topic: My job interview went great! YAY me!

Happy nameday!

Actually it has been on August 8 (in France) but everyone, including me, forgot about it. It's not such a big thing anyway, but my mom insists on 'celebrating' them. She felt a little guilty for forgetting about it - especially since she made quite a scene when I forgot to compliment her first thing in the morning on her nameday. (And hopefully for dropping things on my toes as well... duh!) I got very posh flowers from her, with red roses - she knows I love them. We always dry the bouquets... And self-knitted socks in different shades of green. I love my mom's socks, they are the best. I'll get mittens from the same wool now as well since there was enough left over. Lucky me!

So, what's in a name then?

Dominique {pronounced do-mee-NEEK} French name that derives from Latin (Domenica). It means "of God" or "belonging to God" and also "God's disciple". Gender can be feminine and masculine. Form of Dominic (Latin; meaning "of the Lord". This name was traditionally given to a child born on Sunday. Several saints have borne this name, including the 13th-century founder of the Dominican order of friars.)

Although the name Dominique causes an active mind and a restless urge to explore new ideas, we emphasize that it causes a materialistic approach that frustrates higher humanitarian qualities. This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the solar plexus and reproductive organs.

The name of Dominique brings opportunities for success in business and financial accumulation. It fires you with ambition and promotional ideas, ideas that are original, progressive, and large-scale. With this name, success to you is a foregone conclusion, for you cannot conceive any reason for not reaching all your goals, as you have self-sufficiency, supreme confidence, boundless energy, and enthusiasm. As long as you have a sense of freedom from monotony and drudgery, and can see progress being made, you feel buoyant and optimistic.

How sexy is your name?
D - Once you get it into your head that you want someone, you move full steam ahead in pursuit. You do not give up your quest easily. You are nurturing and caring. If someone has a problem, this turns you on. You are highly sexual, passionate, loyal, and intense in your involvement, sometimes possessive and jealous. Sex to you is a pleasure to be enjoyed. You are stimulated by the eccentric and unusual, having a free and open mind.

Fan of my name?

Last night my mom did the washing up. She put all the dishes on a huge pile to dry. And our huge (and heavy, I can tell...) glass casserole fell down. Amazingly it didn't break. Rather painfully it landed on my toes (because I had no free hand at that moment) which are now blue and swollen! And it hurts a lot. Why is it always me?

Writer's Block: Trading Spaces

If you could be another person for a day, who would it be and why?

The UN Secretary General. I've always wanted to know what exactly the duties and responsibilities of this position were. You're in charge of so many things and so many people. How do you handle the pressure?

my pretty pretty shoes!

I got myself 2 pairs of pretty ballerinas: actually it's the same style, in black and chocolate-brown! They are pointed with a little lace at the front! Really cute and, even better, not expensive. I had to fight hard not to buy yet another handbag - there were so many cute ones! (I already have about 50+ at home and no space left to store them up... *whispers*) I feel so much better right now. Shopping always lifts my spirits! hehe
