(paréntesis)

Son 2 años recolectando cachivaches y voy a hacer un paréntesis. 2 años dedicándole horas a este blog - tiempo que obviamente disfruté- , pero que ahora necesito para ocuparme de otras cosas, de nuevas ideas, de nuevos proyectos, de evolucionar, de mí...

No le pido perdón a nadie, ni a ustedes -lectores que todavía pasan por acá- ; porque tengo alergia de tanto desempolvar, porque tengo flojera de seguir mostrándome a través de una pantalla y porque si sigo posteando terminarían por borrar esta dirección de sus computadoras. Sólo me desenchufo sabiendo que ser "cachivachera" siempre será parte de quién soy y por eso me voy feliz de este URL.

La colección no muere, quedará aquí expuesta hasta que los cachivaches regresen, si y sólo si, soy capaz de reinventarlos...

Au revoir!

"Common Sense" R.I.P.

Esto me lo mandaron por mail y quería compartirlo!

An Obituary Printed In the London Times
Interesting and sadly true

"Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, "Common Sense", who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don"t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouth wash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.
It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust. His wife, Discretion, his daughter, Responsibility, his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights; I Want It Now; Someone Else Is To Blame; I"m A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing."

X-MAS Wishlist

Tengo tres intercambios esta Navidad... Todos los años digo: "esta vez no", pero me terminan convenciendo. Entonces decidí - ya que estoy en este paquete - pues hacer mi wishlist de cosas que de verdad necesito (sobretodo por mi recién adquirida reorganización compulsiva).

El tiempo es corto y el presupuesto también...
Así fue pensada esta lista:

- Un Shower Caddy (npi de cómo llamar a esta cosa).
- Un Jewlery Organizer (ok! en inglés suena mejor).
- Una pizarra de marcador chiquita.
- Un set de paños (los blancos nunca están en sale).
- Cualquier libro interesante para empezar el año (aquí no pongo links porque sería muy largo).

Una nueva cabeza sería ideal... pero está bien! cualquier cosa buena, bonita y barata (o según césar: cool, jeje) hace el trabajo!

Merci!
