I found really interesting how we associate certain sounds with specific situations, even if we don't have a clear visual of the action. Our imagination tends to fill up the hoies our perception tends to produce.
This is a fun example. First you have to watch this movie then the next one.
The sound is the same, the images tell a different story.

This is one of our favourite spots. Nice sunny day, nice environment, nice service, great music and... fresh coffee.
For my kids of course is nice hot chocolate and coloring books.

We got a Cat; we call her "blue"
So, a couple of weeks ago we went to the shelter and got a cat. Ok, I've always been a "dog" kind of guy. And since the time we had to leave our dog "Arnold" in Spain, I was still hurting about having another animal to replace him... But Fabia was insisting so much.
Anyway, we got this 2 years old female called Sheba, from whom we didn't know much. She just looked shy.
The first week she become the "cat from hell". She run and hide in our closet and would hisssssss at us when approached. Pretty much we thought we had an antisocial beast in our household. We were advised to be patient and so we did (it was hard since I love having animals around so I can pet them and touch them and didn't make much of a sense to get one that disappears and just come back to eat and poo.
But for the last week, "blue" (her new name) has turned around. First coming out of the closet, not hissing at us and now she loves jumping on our bed and having a "petting" session from any of us.
We hope with time she will come out of our room and join the rest of the family. I love this cat!.
Watch the movie.
Xmas is coming. My wife went shopping and got me a present. Just a bit of a problem... She has a hard time keeping a secret. So, lucky for me I got my present a month in advance.
A sweeeeeet black, 60 Gb, iPod. Videoooooooooooooo.
Now I will be seeing my favorite Podcasts and Vlogs from my brand new baby.

Being the Underdog
Watch the movie.
Yet another of my monologs. This time I dissert about being the underdog in this culture.
"I am number ONE", our kids are taught in school, TV and sport events. "Number TWO is the first looser", they repeat to us....
I want to be the underdog.
