Letterman: A Top Ten List for you
David Letterman’s Late Show has been doing a “less than stellar” show these days, and the ratings are showing it. Well, David, I hate to see a dirty old man being beaten by a man with a car fetish. Therefore, in light of recent events, I compiled a Top Ten List for you. Please credit me: TOP TEN QUESTIONS JEFF ZUCKER WILL BE ASKED IN HIS NEXT PRESS CONFERENCE: 10. Are you going...
Eat, Pray, Love
Last night I went to the movies, and watched “Eat, Pray, Love”. It’s has been a while since the last time I went to the theater (last two movies I saw on the big screen were “Toy Story 3” and “This Is It”). I don’t go to the movies as frequently as I did on college (almost every Tuesday, Student Night). Since I’m mostly a hermit these days, I watch most of the movies on DVD. However, yesterday I...

Reflections after 9/11
Six days ago, the world remembered the unfortunate terrorist attacks to the United States. Thousands of innocent lives were lost, and the world, as we knew it, will never be the same. Like everyone else, I remember the events, where I was and how I felt. Today I want to share my reflection of what I’ve learned and what is my opinion. Point # 1: Hate and intolerance is what brought us here; not...

I don't have knives to pack
I love to watch cooking shows. I’m a diehard fan of the Food Network, and I could watch it all day, if not for the complaints of my sisters. In my defense, I have to say that I’ve learned a bit about cooking techniques that I have adapted to my cooking (when I actually cook). Apart from most Food Network programs, my other favorite cooking related show is Top Chef (Bravo). I’ve been hooked to...
Siete de Septiembre
One of my favorite pop music artists is the Spanish group Mecano, composed by the composers, musicians and brothers José María and Nacho Cano, and the female singer Ana Torroja. The band started when they were very young, at the beginning of the 80’s decade, as part of a cultural revolution occurring in Spain called “La Movida Madrileña”. Their initial songs were light and funny, and their music...
Write what should not be forgotten.– Isabel Allende
Most people make Bucket Lists, that is, lists of things that they want to do before they “kick the bucket”. Today, I want to share a different list. Is a list of unique and extraordinary things I’ve done in my life that I can throw in the “memory bucket” (lame, but bear with me, please). Here it is: Been a Godmother Eaten Ice Cream at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower Danced with a world-famous...
Bregando con tumblr.
I’m a virgin… at this blogging thing. I have always enjoyed writing. Recently I found all my college diaries (Active ingredient: 95% the whines of a broken heart), and I thought: Why I am not writing now? The answer: because I’m an undisciplined lazy ass. I believe I can contribute to society with my great ideas… or at least I can save money telling people I don’t...
