Pick-up lines

Ok, ok, ok... someone had to do a top 20 best pick-up lines, right?! And I know all of you girls out there experienced something similar. Guys, we do appreciate your inner talent, spontaneity, funny ideas and your visible effort to impress us girls, but sometimes you just need to try harder. Here's a hint on how you can succeed to impress a girl.

Here's a list of the best pick-up lines that I've ever heard:

20. You spend so much time in my dreams I should charge rent!
19. Do you have a bandage? I hurt my knee when I fell in love with you.
18. Do you have a quarter? I told my girlfriend I would call her when I found someone better.
17. You must be the cause of global warming.
16. Are those astronaut pants? Cause that ass is out of this world!
15. You dropped something. My jaw!
14. You know, we were born without clothes.
13. You must be a magician because every time I look at you everyone else disappears.
12. You don't need car keys to drive me crazy.
11. I suffer from amnesia. Do I come here often?
10. Did they just take you out of the oven 'cause you're hot!
9. Do you have a map? Because I just got lost in your eyes.
8. Can I buy you a drink or do you just want the money?
7. Apart from being sexy, what do you do for a living?
6. Can I get your picture to prove all my friends that angels really do exist?
5. Do you know karate? 'Cause your body is really kickin'!
4. Guy: What's your name?; Girl: Paula; Guy: Oh, I thought it was Aphrodite.
3. I envy your lipstick.
2. Oh my God...I thought I was gay... and then I met you.
1. You know, you might be asked to leave soon. Because you're making the other women look really bad.

Remember Jais?!

How come this country does not appreciate real artists? How come we lost such talents who just decided to live and work in the US? It is not only shameful it is also striking...Alina Giurgiu is the perfect example to sustain this idea. Former lead singer of the band Jais, that beautiful witty woman who bewitched us all with her deep voice is no longer a singer in Romania. A visual artist and a jazz singer, Alina chose to leave this country for a better life. Who can blame her? We couldn't appreciate her talent enough, I remember that year when they released this song, it was 2002, I was 17. It was love at first sight for me. I had goosebumps all over my body when hearing her brilliant voice. They reached no.1 in all charts in a week. Why did she leave? I wished I could see one of their concerts. They were just perfect. I searched some videos on YouTube and found 3 live performances from 2007 in Quebec...that's about all I know from her or her band. If you know something else about this Romanian band, please post a comment on my blog. And another thing, stop listening to manele, or that Barbie pop music with plastic-like blonde girl 'cause the real artists are shadowed by those low IQ super models and they just vanish into thin air. Please...

For what it's worth

I am in a romantic and mild mood today and as a result, today's track will sustain my feelings and my state of mind. It's a Cardigans song I picked as it brings me joy every time I listen to it. You know those mornings when you wake up and for no apparent reason, you are stuck with a song all day long. Today was my Cardigans day :)
I know I haven't written in quite a while now but I just couldn't find the necessary time to do so, as I had another exam yesterday evening and I am sooooooo thrilled that one's over. One more to go! I would like to get stoned after the Saturday exam 'cause I foresee difficult times in my company. 2 of my colleagues will be leaving for a business trip in Germany... :(
So I should better get a good grip of that vodka bottle. :) I was also searching for some summer trips and I would like to go to Spain, Portugal or Italy...Actually Italy is kind of expensive (Sardinia!!!), so that leaves Spain or Portugal. Tenerife could be an option or even Madeira...there's still time to decide but I would love to spend my holiday on a deserted beach, white soft sand, crystal clear water, palm trees, flowers and that wonderful sea-side smell which put a spell on me ever since I first went to the sea-side as a child. I just need a dog to keep me company and some novels and I would be more than happy and relaxed...Oh boy, what a life! Don't wake me up from this dream, not just yet. :)

Just 19, this sucker's dream...

I was listening to music a lot this week-end as you know I am alone during most of them and have to fill my time with anything at all, so I thought to myself that on Sunday I will have a "music day", just playing my favourite songs throughout time, trying to remember for each song I hear a face, a thought, a feeling from the past, good or bad, happy or sad...and I stopped at a Placebo song. I knew it before, I just forgot about it. Now this band is also a bit "dual", a lot of contradictory feelings accompanying their songs and lyrics...which is probably why I liked it so much. It fitted my mood like a glove. The next thing I did after listening to the song was to search for the lyrics so as to analyse the content a bit. Special Needs is a song which reminds you of the past, may it be your long gone youth or a relationship which ended suddenly without having any possibility to change what happened. Not sure if it's dedicated to someone else or maybe it's just a song dedicated to our own soul. Also, another strange thing is the video which shows two teenagers who are apart but feel very close to each other mentally and make love to thin air. (actually I found this idea just brilliant) Such a unique video! I adore it, can't get enough of it. However, I must say that I don't really like the abrupt ending of the song. Maybe it's just to sustain the main idea in correlation with time...one minute you're here, the next one you're gone...just like youth...just like a relationship. Remember me?!

"Special Needs"

Remember me when you're the one who's silver screened
Remember me when you're the one you always dreamed
Remember me whenever noses start to bleed
Remember me, special needs

Just 19 and sucker's dream I guess I thought you had the flavour
Just 19 and dream obscene with six months off for bad behaviour

Remember me when you clinch your movie deal
And think of me stuck in my chair that has four wheels
Remember me through flash photography and screams
Remember me, special dreams

Just 19 this sucker's dream I guess I thought you had the flavour
Just 19 and dream obscene with six months off for bad behaviour
Just 19 and sucker's dream I guess I thought you had the flavour
Just 19 and dream obscene with six months off for bad behaviour

Remember me...

Just 19 this sucker's dream I guess I thought you had the flavour
Just 19 and dream obscene with six months off for bad behaviour
Just 19 and sucker's dream I guess I thought you had the flavour
Just 19 and dream obscene with six months off for bad behaviour

Remember me...

Long Way Down

Back in track dearest visitors with 1 day of delay :) as I am still busy learning for my Master Exam Session. You are right Andrei, that Claudio guy was kind of goofy but it sure must have been more difficult than shown on camera and the important thing was that they made it and that no major accidents or problems occurred on their route.
Now in the second trip, "Long Way Down", UNICEF's involvement became even more obvious than in the previous expedition as the guys had another "hot" challenge, their main goal being that of reaching the southernmost point of Africa (you can see now the link between the title - Long Way DOWN- and the route).The trip started on 12 May 2007 and finished on 4 August 2007. Same trip formula, Ewan, Charlie, even Claudion von Planta and producer Russ Malkin, upgraded BMWs- R1200GS Adventure and lots of challenges. The route started from John o' Groats, in the North of Scotland and passed through 18 countries, downwards to Africa. The guys took the Euro tunnel reaching France, Italy, then took the ferry to Tunisia, thus starting their African adventure. From Tunisia, they entered Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Malawi (where Ewan's wife- Eve- joined the trip- girl power!!!!!), Zambia, Namibia, Botswana and finally South Africa. They finished their journey at Cape Agulhas,which is the most southerly point of the Black Continent. Rumour has it that the guys are planning a third expedition entitled Long Way To Go but nothig official has been released yet. I know that Charlie Boorman started an expedition on his own in 2008 entitled By Any Means, where he had to travel through 24 countries starting from Ireland to Sydney, by any means of transportation :). Personally I missed Ewan in that show so I am looking forward for the Long Way To Go adventure. I will keep you informed should I know something on the subject. Wish I could be part of such a trip in the future so if anyone is interested in motorbike traveling, post a comment and let me know. Bis dann!!!

The Long Way Round

stereophonics - long way round
Asculta mai multe audio Muzica »

2 men..2 bikes..20,000 miles. Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman started their first exciting journey on April 14 2004 and finished it on July 29 2004, traveling mostly on motorbikes for almost 20,000 miles through 12 countries. The starting point was London and the destination was New York. They traveled eastwards, visiting such countries as France, Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia, Kazahstan, Mongolia, USA and Canada. Their main target was to ride on the Road of Bones and to reach Magadan from where they flew to Alaska to continue their journey to New York. The two actors also had a fellow biker cameraman Claudio von Planta and a support crew which was usually keeping 1 day distance between the bikers, meeting only at borders or in such situations where team work was needed. It must be at least 5 times that I saw all the episodes and I still can't get enough of them. The fly-on-the-wall camera filming was just brilliant, Ewan and Charley are talented bikers and I wish to experiment something like that once. They rode on custom made BMWs R1150GS Adventure and had a series of challenges on the way, starting from visas, to fines, minor motorbike accidents, crossing the rivers on the way to Magadan and so on. You will have to check the episodes for yourselves, they are super cool and tomorrow I will be back with other pieces of information about the Long Way Down. Even the music was great, Charley and Ewan picked the songs themselves from their favourite bands like Sterophonics, Radiohead, Coldplay, Massive Attack and Orbitral. The Long Way Round soundtrack was composed by Stereophonics lead singer Kelly Jones. I will upload the song so that you can hear it and I will also post the lyrics. Enjoy them! And learn how to be free!! Do something crazy, something you always dreamt to do but was too afraid of trying it. Don't be limited; reach for what you believe in! It will be important for your soul and for your self esteem! Take care everyone!!!

Long way Round

Remember me my love?

I'm the one you're dreaming of.

I'm going for a ride,

I'll keep you warm inside.

I'm gonna roll up the sidewalk,

I'm gonna tear up the ground.

I'm coming round to meet you,

The long way round.

Sooner or later,

I'll get me off this track.

I gotta do what it is that I do

Then I'm coming back

Got sun on my face.

Sleeping rough off the road.

I'll tell you all about it,

When I get home.

I'm gonna roll up the sidewalk,

I'm gonna tear up the ground.

I'm coming round to meet you,

The long way round.

So dear boys and girls... missed me? I made some time to write in my blog this morning as the day has not begun yet and I still have time to listen to some music, or to watch a video, to check my e-mails and to chat with my colleagues. I will have my first exam today and I must admit that I do feel a bit stressed out and anxious, even though I spent the whole week-end reading for my Master Courses. Yesterday as I arrived home at 6 pm I still needed to finish a big juicy project for school but I felt like doing all sorts of activities I do not normally do, like taking out the garbage, cleaning my room, sorting my clothes, watering the plants, picking up my socks from under the bed, etc. These are all chores I absolutely hate when being asked to perform but anything was better than studying... I wanted to go to karate but was a bit short on time. Anyways, I did finish my project by midnight and sent it to my teacher, waiting for the results now and I hope I will pass this exam session because I really got tired of school and sessions and everything... I am so fed up! Probably after finishing this Master Course I will put an end to my education for a couple of years, just to make the best out of my evenings and week-ends. I would like to travel more, go somewhere new every week-end, take pictures and have fun, meet new people... you know?! Yeah, so anyways, I will upload a song which fits my mood this morning, an older song which I adore, and this one is dedicated to all those who got dumped! Raise your glasses for me and cheers!

Am primit ieri un link foarte interesant cu actorul Dan Bordeianu, pe care eu una nu îl agream în mod special, având în vedere reputaţia sa de "telenovelist". M-a şocat foarte mult filmuleţul, m-a surprins monologul atât de inteligent conceput şi mi-am dat seama că de fapt ceea ce se vinde pe sticlă nu are absolut nici o legătură cu omul în sine, cu talentul care se află ascuns în spatele unei imagini care vrea să se vândă. Să mai spun că m-a emoţionat mesajul în sine? Să mai spun că mi-a amintit de cât de răzvrătită m-am simţit eu când am trecut prin aceeaşi "despărţire"? Da, te face să strigi, să fi nemulţumit de tot ce te înconjoară, să nu-i înţelegi pe oamenii care cască sau care sunt îmbrăcaţi în gri, să îţi fie lehamite de aceleaşi feţe pe care le vezi pe stradă, în drum spre lucru, în pauza de masă şi in drum spre casă... Nu vreau să fiu limitată, în nici un caz nu vreau asta, dar mai ştiu şi că acea libertate pe care o caut nu există. Întotdeauna te vei agăţa de ceva, întotdeauna ai nevoie de cineva pentru a te păcăli pentru o perioadă cu fericirea există pentru că tu exişti. Nu eşti cu nimic mai special ca mine, nu sunt cu nimic mai specială ca tine, dar am nevoie de tine pentru a fi specială... cam asta ar fi.

blue or green eyes?

Ever since I can remember, I always wanted to have a different eye colour. I mean, it's so dull to have brown/hazel eyes, right? If you go to a store for example and you are surrounded by people, how many of them have brown eyes and how many of them have green or blue eyes? Did you ever pay attention to this detail? I have... and most of the people here have brown eyes...most of my friends have brown eyes, I have brown eyes... So I asked Voicu, a colleague from work, to take one of my b-day party pictures and to make my eyes green and then blue, just to see which one would be more appropriate for my physiognomy. I would say that I look more natural with green eyes than with blue eyes, but I am also waiting for your opinion as well. Well? What do you think? Ok, ok, ok, you can ignore that background character who looks like a Vampire version of Marcel Pavel, Voicu couldn't resist...he had to do something creative, it's in his genes! :) And, you can also ignore the colours chosen, which aren't that natural as Voicu just edited my picture in Paint.. so it is rather rudimentary, but we'll have to do with it. :)

6 horses, of course!

Deci iata ca inca se mai poate folosi episodul "6 cai". Dupa filmuletul aparut pe Youtube, melodiile remixate, acum apare aceasta varianta a emisiunii "Vrei sa fi miliardar" cu celebrul nostu personaj rromanesc :D. Enjoy it!!! Pe mine una m-a distrat teribil! (thanks fratellino)
Aaa, si pentru cei care inca nu au avut ocazia sa vada filmuletele pe Youtube, voi atasa mai jos link-urile:

My B-day Party

And it's over :), my great B-day party, that is. I had the most wonderful time ever! We celebrated on the 14th of January in Avi-Cola, on a Wednesday night- Karaoke night! GREAT QUALITY TIME, international atmosphere, lots of alcohol and good music. Seemed to be the perfect combination as by the time I got home it was already past 4 a.m. I woke up feeling sober and confused at 6 a.m. so as to get ready for a new working day. Now normally, I wouldn't do such a party during the week as my workplace needs me to be 150% concentrated on the job. I don't know how concentrated I was after a 2 hour sleep and the vodka still trapped inside of me, but I pulled myself out of bed, took a shower, got dressed and walked to work. Surprisingly, I just needed 2 green teas and I was able to give my best to translate all those freaking contracts... By the way, one of my pseudonyms is also "THE CONTRACT GIRL" :)

Back to my party now... I was thinking when was the last time I had such a great time at my own B-day party. It must have been at my 18th B-day party. That too was a party to remember, but this one was the best so far. I am speaking from my own point of view now, and I have to be honest and say that maybe this party was just an excuse for me to let loose and forget all my problems for one night. And I just did that. I danced the whole night till my feet started hurting, my hair was messy and my makeup started fading away. I was all the time laughing, telling jokes, being the old Aditza I used to know. And it felt great for a change... I needed that party, I needed my friends and colleagues giving me all those admirative looks, I needed to get drunk and I don't regret ANYTHING!!! Why should I? LIFE IS LIKE A CHOCOLATE BOX, before you know it it's over, so enjoy it to the max!

1,2,3... ready or not, here I come!

I am a "new entry" in today's Blog Scene and as a new entry, the first impression counts...

No need for me to reveal any unnecessary aspects of my life so far, these things will come out as the time will pass and it will feel more natural than if I would start enumerating all my hobbies, interests, jobs, boyfriends, girlfriends and so on.

So without any further introduction, let us start this online diary of the "little matchbox girl".

One of the reasons why I have decided to keep track of my life would be the intense period which followed the breakup between me and Vlad, with whom I spent 2 and a half years thinking and believing he would be THE ONE. It's been 2 months since then and during all this time we spoke twice on the phone but we haven't met ever since. Maybe it's for the better. I heard he has a new girlfriend now, as for me... I tried to start a new relationship but then I decided that I was not ready for anything serious. It's more like a mixture of feelings and memories which not only fill my entire being but also my room I am standing in right now. I feel sad and happy at the same time, I feel frustrated but also calm, greedy but also generous, naive but also skeptic, loved and hated, black and white, two souls living in the same person.

It's tough being a girl...
