My Failure to Remember

I’ll soon add a new year to the row of the other ones and, as some people say, this is an important one for a woman (or for a man; I don’t want to be a misandrist). As this is the way it should be, I started to weave nostalgias and sum up the things [...]

The curiously long case of Benjamin Button

I didn’t see the Oscar Ceremony because I was at the movies last night. I saw “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. Pretty good, I’d say. I give it about three stars, if anyone asks me.

Of course, it rained, soft and petty, just enough to get on my nerves and spite me. I still had my share of little breaks, though. Long enough to [...]


I don’t know if it’s the rain but … something must be blamed

Ruined weekend in Laguna Beach
Happy Anniversary without …
Terrace only for party of 4, party of 2 eats inside
Hotel room with an ocean view and a large hole in the budget, already “taken” by a cockroach (economy?!?)
Furious bags back in the car
And leave
And such [...]
