today is a sunday.

Posted in movies, Personal stuff, thoughts by ladybug on October 9, 2011

Today is a Sunday. Probably the most inspiring day of the week. This post is the first post I write in this blog without having a clue what to write about, and I kinda like that.

Sometimes I think I should write really personal things in here, but then I think again and I decide to stay low profile, after all just by reading the few lines here, you can already get a trait of my personality. I don’t want to be over-exposed, chaque chose en son temps.

Steve Jobs died 2 days ago. Yey. Makes the world a bit less capitalist I guess. Or not. But all I want to say is that success and all the shit that comes with it, is waaaaaaaaaaaay overrated. I hate the world we live in. Argh sometimes I wish I was president.

Ok, I’m not in a good mood today. I’m rather in a bad mood even. In fact, one of the worst I’ve been in a long fucking time.

Cheers to Barbar, cleaning the cats of the streets and putting them in our sandwiches. I was out last night, after some drinking and a terrible headache, we decided with the guys to go eat a sandwich at 5 a.m. Probably the worst idea ever. 8 hours have passed since then, and I can still feel you, little chicken inside my angry stomach. You too Mr. mayo.

On another note, two great discoveries, and probably the best films I’ve watched recently:

Drive and Vénus Noire. They have nothing in common except that they are both very sensitive to the human kind.
