Comprehension of another one’s problems is bonded tightly with empathy. Each and everyone of us is the center of his/her own universe, and everything else revolves around that. It’s about choices, about desires, strength, but in the end, it’s reduced to empathy. Trying to help the ones around you is like the earth using the ocean’s tides to keep the moon just close enough from crashing… A jukebox is just a box if it’s missing it’s discs, but if it has them, it’s all lights and sound. Stuff that works, does not get noticed, broken stuff raises questions, like a traffic light, blinking for thousands of times every day, will be watched, acknowledged but it won’t be noticed until it breaks and causes a traffic jam.

Taking for granted the people we have around leads to confusing them with the background and missing them just after they dissapear. And many times they go away, because each and everyone one of us is the center of his/hers own universe, with their moon, with their jukebox with their traffic light…

– Why is this so difficult?
– What? they ask
– The only thing that matters… right now
everything else is cool…
helping others is cool…
seeing smiles is cool…
makes you happy that you helped…
seeing people happy makes you happy…
but just for a bit…
then you remember that one thing…
and keep the smile…
and look sad…
sad but smiling…
sad smile…
– what’s wrong?? they ask…
– nah, it’s ok…
just this thingie I can’t blurt out…
will work out…

But who is going to help me smile?

Un alt tricou!

In direct din Oxford, via Alexandra T. / Apolodor avem azi un nou tricou in seria de tricouri tricoaie si alte obiecte de vestimentatie “catchy”. Et, drept urmare, voila:

Mi-a promis poza demult demult, a trimis-o ieri, si s-a si scuzat pe tema asta (*hugs*):

…si dupa o mie de ani…:)

(sorry about the quality, it’s taken with my phone…)

MacGyver vs O’Neill

richarddean.jpgI’m a very big fan of Richard Dean Anderson as you might know from reading my posts, and me ranting about Stargate SG1 or Atlantis, and I am very disappointed that people around me don’t get the t-shirt joke. It’s about MacGyver, a show that aired between 1985 and 1992 where using science and his wits, rather than violence, MacGyver could solve almost any problem. The action-adventure format addressed social issues as well, and MacGyver became a role model praised by critics, parents, and teachers alike.  MacGyver continues to enjoy tremendous popularity around the world.

The fact that people don’t understand the joke culminated this weekend on St Patricks Day, when I was wearing it, and when someone said “Hey man, cool t-shirt!”  I asked: “But do you know who MacGyver is?!” and the reply was “Well, I guess it’s some irish dude…

That being said, I’m just sorry that many people missed out MacGyver’s adventures,  and the (life) lessons he taught. Forget the joke, that’s nothing… I just know I learned a lot from that character.

And now, a funny clip called “The funniest Stargate SG-1 prank”. Practically Samantha Carter just trashes RD Anderson’s character. I’m always rotfl‘ing when I see it.

La Pescuit

Din seria tricourilor interesante, vi-l prezint pe Radu, colegul meu de la SimpliQ, un nebun si jumatate:

img00221.jpg img00223.jpg

Tot azi, cu masina prin Piata Pacii, un militian era la dat din antebrat ca sa mearga totul bine, si mi-a ramas pe retina o dscutie intre doi oameni care stateau in spate:

Diana (Cu varicela…): De ce e politaiu’ asta aici?

ThotY (cu IGREC): Era prea fluenta circulatia..

Si, ca sa terminam in forta, un banc genial via Mircea Vadan:

Sambata dimineata m-am trezit devreme, m-am imbracat in liniste, mi-am pregatit un pachet cu mancare pentru pranz, am luat cainele, am mers apoi tiptil pana in garaj si am atasat barca la Jeep si am pornit la drum.
Spre disperarea mea, la iesire din garaj am observat ca afara era o vijelie de nedescris, ploaie amestecata cu fulgi de zapada, vantul sufla cu peste 95km/h. Am revenit cu masina in garaj si am pornit radioul. La stiri se anunta ca vremea se va inrautati in continuu.M-am intors in casa. M-am dezbracat inapoi in liniste si m-am strecurat in pat langa sotia mea soptindu-i la ureche:
– E o vreme ingrozitoare afara.
Ea a raspuns somnoroasa :
– Iti vine sa crezi ca sotul meu idiot e la pescuit pe furtuna asta.

Cool T-shirts

If you are one of the people who hang out around the places I hang out, you should already know I have some funny t-shirts like this. Well, this is about funny t-shirts I got to see worn by my friends, and had a chance to take a photo of.

  • First one, from Vlad Gorgan, one of the bigshots at Trilulilu.ro: “I hate my clothes, Can you help me undress?


  • Second one, belongs to Lorand Peli, good friend of mine: “Hamburgers are made of WHAT!?


  • Third one, from Dan Groza, good friend, and colleague from SimpliQ Media & Technology:”If I’d give a crap, you’d be the first one I’d give it to!


The pictures were taken with a BlackBerry 8100 Pearl, in not so good lighting conditions, so please excuse the quality.

What would MacGyver do?

I don’t know how many of you remember the show MacGyver (Dean Anderson) but I was a great fan. As soon as I saw the t-shirt on threadless I had to have it. I just got it, and here it is…


It says: “What would MacGyver do?


Later Edit: one of my coleagues just said (not knowing who MacGyver was)

Aalsen: stick the roll in his anus and free the negro’s ? then he wouldnt need toilet paper anymore
Aalsen: im not a rescist – i piss off all races equally…

OMFG! Hilarious!

blogging is fun!

Well, it is! reading blogs is fun, if the author has something nice to say, and writing blogs is fun if you have time for it, and you write some good crap…

You want to win a six figure amount from your blog? get a job that pays a six figure amount, and blog from work! This I read somewhere on the net, and it seemed excellent! 😉

How lame can you be, to need attention from someone and you resort to cutting your veins for it? well, one guy found a good way to get close to a girl who used to be his girlfriend, and called her telling her that he found one of her t-shirts, and he was going to return it. He did, and the girl noticed a funny thing… The t-shirt was a girls t-shirt, but it wasn’t hers!!! now that’s lame… 😀 I’ll add names here if I will be allowed to… but, later!

A cool gift I got yesterday from my sister was a nice RED t-shirt, which now I wear proudly and instead of making the sign “talk to the hand” to people who need that sign, i just show them my t-shirt… the first picture with me on this blog, check below:


Coming up in a later post, some other nice t-shirts I own… 😉

str8_logo.gif Later Edit: Also from Ania I got a chain letter reaction thingie about the perfume I use. Well, anyone who knows me a little bit should know I use STR8. STR8 Black since 2000 or 1999(via Sonia who introduced me to it) and and STR8 Green since the summer of 2007. I would like Andressa to tell us what she uses, also Fana and Mr. Fenomental 😉
