Craving for pizza

Asa plictisit de duminica, si cum mi s-a atras atentia ca nu am mai scris demult, o sa va las sa cititi o istorioara funny funny de tot… Inca mai zambesc cand ma gandesc la ea… 

Diana: pfff, am o poveste naspa cu craving for pizza

.marius: order in 
Diana: no
Diana: merg vineri in oras w/friends
.marius: like next friday?
Diana: la un moment dat, mi se aprinde un beculetz ca vreau pizza carbonara
.marius: ah 
.marius: last friday 
Diana: i’m not into povesti din viitor
Diana: mna
Diana: si un prieten zice hai sa introduce you to supa de ceapa, ca el zicea ca-i buna
Diana: si ca ne luam dup-aia o pizza pe dindoua la marty
Diana: mergem la marty: “n-avem locuri, numai la nefumatori”
Diana: kkt, mergem in pub
Diana: gasim masa aproape de intrare
Diana: aprind o tzigara
Diana: vine chelneru “ne pare rau, asta e zona de nefumatori”
Diana: super
.marius: LOL
Diana: staaaaaaaaaaaai
Diana: mai este
Diana: vin niste tipi, prietenu cu prietenu asta, se duc mai incolo si gasesc o masa
Diana: bogdan merge la ei sa-i convinga sa facem schimb, ca ei nu fumau
Diana: ok, facem schimb
Diana: satisfacuti, scoatem toti tzigarile
Diana: )la urmatoarea masa inspre bar fumau toti)
Diana: apare chelneru “si aici e nefumatori”

I believe I can flyyyyy!!!

Damn sweet! via aiurea@ am ajus la un clip de pe cnet.ro si mi s-a facut pielea de gaina! Oamenii aia chiar ZBOARA! si nu, nu in modul “conventional” cu avionul/elicopterul/deltaplanul sau alte metode deja consacrate, ci doar cu niste costume speciale. Sunt convins ca s-a mai facut, poate ati si vazut dar chestia asta merita toti banii, toate zilele de spitalizare, TOT! Vorba celor de la mastercard: PRICELESS… 

Tocmai am descoperit ceva ce ar putea sa introduca mai multa adrenalina in mine decat bungee jumping, si daca stam sa ne gandim, e destul de apropiata miscarea… base jump + gliding…

The five stages of DRUNKENNESS

Stage #1 — Smart

This is when you suddenly become an expert on every subject. You know all and greatly wish to xpress this knowledge to anyone who will listen. At this stage you are also always right. And of course the person you are talking with is very wrong. You will talk for hours trying to convince someone that you are right. This makes for an interesting argument when both parties are “smart”. Two people talking, in fact, arguing about a subject neither one really knows anything about, but are convinced that they are they complete authority on the subject makes for great entertainment for those get the opportunity to listen in.

Stage #2 — Handsome/Pretty

This is when you are convinced that you are the best looking person in the entire room and everyone is looking at you. You begin to wink at perfect strangers and ask them to dance because of course they had been admiring you the whole evening. You are the center of attention, and all eyes are directed at you because you are the most beautiful thing on the face of the earth. Now keep in mind that you are still smart, so you can talk to this person who has been admiring you about any and all subjects under the sun.

Stage #3 — Rich

This is when you suddenly become the richest person in the world. You can buy drinks for the entire bar and put it on your bill because you surely have an armored truck full of your money parked behind the bar. You can also make bets in this stage. Now of course you still know all, so you will always win all your bets. And you have no concern for how much money you bet because you have all the money in the world. You will also begin to buy drinks for all the people in the bar who are admiring you because you are now the smartest, prettiest, and richest person on the face of the earth.

Stage #4 — Bulletproof

You can now pick fights with the people you have been betting money with because you cannot be hurt by anything. At this point you would go up to the boyfriend of the woman who had been admiring your beautiful self all evening and challenge him to a battle of wits for money. You have no worry about losing this battle of wits because you know all, have all the money to cover this bet, and you obviously win a fight that might erupt if he looses.

Stage #5 — Invisible

This is the final stage of drunkenness. At this point you can do absolutely anything because no one can see you. You can get up and dance on a table; you can strip down to your underwear, to impress the people who have been admiring you all evening, because the rest of the people in the room cannot see you. You are also invisible to the person whom you have picked a fight with earlier in the evening. You can walk through the streets singing at the top of your lungs (because of course you are
still smart and know the tune perfectly) and no one will think anything of it because they can’t see you. All your social inhibitions are gone. You can do anything, because no one will know.

And you certainly won’t remember !

Managerul si Inginerul

Un tip zboara cu balonul admirand peisajul rural pe care-l survoleaza. La un moment dat isi da seama ca s-a ratacit si observand un om dedesubt coboara balonul sa-l intrebe unde se afla.

-       “Nu te supara, am si eu nevoie de ajutorul tau. Trebuie sa ma intalnesc cu un prieten intr-o jumatate de ora si nu stiu unde sunt.”
-       “Cu placere: te afli la bordul unui balon, la 10m deasupra solului, coordonatele fiind 41 de grade latitudine nordica si 63 de grade longitudine estica.”

La care tipul din balon nervos zice:

-       “Cu singuranta esti inginer!”
-       “Ai dreptate, cum ti-ai dat seama?”
-       “Pai foarte simplu: toate datele pe care mi le-ai dat sunt corecte din punct de vedere tehnic, dar nu-mi rezolva problema, n-am nici cea mai mica idee ce sa fac cu informatiile primite, si sunt in continuare la fel de ratacit ca si inainte.”
Si inginerul:
-       “Tu cu siguranta esti manager!”
-       “Ai dreptate, de unde stii?”
-       “Pai e si mai simplu: Habar nu ai unde esti si nici incotro te indrepti. Ai facut o promisiune pe care habar n-ai cum s-o tii, si mai  mult, te bazezi pe mine sa-ti rezolv problema. Rezultatul e ca esti tot in cacatul in care erai si inainte de a te intalni cu mine, numai ca acum e vina mea!”
