Special entry for Izar

So, dear Izar, I’ll do this one in (rusty) English for you. Thank you so much for also nominating me, you know I speak from the heart when I say that I love reading your blog and I’m so happy that other Romanian bloggers also enjoy reading your articles.

The rules:

  • Thank the person that gave you the prize – done!
  • Give the award to blogs you’ve recently discovered and think that deserve it – done!
  • Contact those bloggers and tell them about the award – that too!
  • Write 7 random facts about you – this should be interesting for me to write 🙂

Now, the blogs:

7 things about me:

My boyfriend took the liberty of bitching and moaning about me in the parentheses. 🙂

  • My boyfriend says I’m lazy; well, I’m just trying to maximize my leisure time, so what’s the big deal with lazyness any way? With laziness comes procrastination, which is one of my worst habits.
  • I have this thing with frogs… more precisely I suffer from frog phobia. My boyfriend can hardly wait to pull frog pranks on me, perhaps he’s just trying to get even with me for using him as a tree/fence to climb on whenever I saw a tiny/large/nice/ugly/dead/living/moving/still/happy/jumpy/etc. frog. Did  I mention the screaming? Yeah, I totaly  lose it when I see a frog.
  • I hate cooking but I love eating! Not a win-win situation for me. I enjoy making cakes and other homemade killers for my teeth and pancreas. [She whips up someting about every 3 weeks or so… I have to eat crappy fast food because my cooking is actually lethal. No really, if anybody eats my cooking, they’ll probably have the runs for about 3 days.]
  • Favorite writers: Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (A.P. Cehov would be the spelling in our language) and a German dude, Herman Hesse.
  • I believe in second chances. [Seeing as we’re still together, she apparently believes in third, fourth, fifth and nth chances as well, at least as regards specific subjects.]
  • I’m an underachiever and I’m totaly fine with that. [She really is totally fine with that! For real!]
  • Aside from my phobia, I’m a very calm person. That is until something or someone gets to me. Then I become a WOMAN! Everybody knows how bitchy women can be, so I guess that says it all. [She truly is a very calm person. As in she gets mad about stuff, sometimes major stuff, says nothing and remains calm, and everything goes in a big „bag of whoopass” which she unleashes when she had enough of that. So instead of having to deal with a littler bit of bi… womanhood for every issue, I get to deal with 4-5 months of repressed bitchiness when sh*t hits the fan].

Mhaha, trebuie sa recunosc ca sunt geniale comentariile consortului :hihi: Si la ultimul trebuie sa fiu de acord cu el (nu de alta, da` si consortul meu tot asa reactioneaza 😀 )

Eu i-am zis că nu mor fără el, dar el vrea să mă suporte 🙂 Sau ei vor să ne suporte, în cazul nostru 🙂

Stai că zic în română că-n engleză sunt alte nuanţe. Vai cât mi se aplică fazele din filmuleţ! Fundul meu cel leneş s-a simţit puţin prost că stă toată ziua în loc să fie pro-activ 🙂
Mă consolez cu ideea că mai sunt şi alţii care se sabotează singuri.

Aww, you’re sweet, thank you! And your English is anything but „rusty”; it’s absolutely great! Congratulations to your and your teacher(s)! 🙂

I wonder if you’d love or hate Disney’s The Princess and the Frog…? I mean, it’s got really cute cartoon frogs in it, nothing cold and slimy, but who knows, right? 🙂

I have the same problem with cooking: I hate it (can’t even do it properly), but I just love to terrorize people’s pancreata with my cookies and cakes. 😀 But since I’m a procrastinator too, I probably won’t be learning to cook anytime soon…

I also really anjoyed your BF’s remarks: made me giggle a lot. 😀

The blogs you passed this award to look great, I’ve already checked them out and have fallen in love!

Thanks for doing this, I’m glad I got to know more about you. 🙂

I haven’t seen the frog movie yet… I guess I should, since I’ve heard nice things about it. And cartoon frogs are ok, it’s the real ones that make me loose my grip.

Regarding cooking… I can cook, I’m a natural talent in the kitchen, I just hate cooking. I’m a fan of the ‘division of labor” concept but sice I have no one to divide my labor with – my BF is a lazy spoiled [add pejorative word of choice] – I’d rather spend my time blogging or picking my nose than cooking and doing housework. 🙂

You should see it, it’s great! 🙂

Yeah, I know what you mean about cooking: I don’t have a single recipe in my head, so if anyone asked me to cook, say, chicken soup, I’d be stumped. But if I get to have a cookbook, I’m unstoppable. 🙂 I just hate cooking (messy!), and hate washing up afterwards even more. Also, the prospect of cakes and cookies motivates me much more than chicken soup. 😀

Draga mea ai un premiu la mine pe blog http://blog.biobeauty.ro/2010/04/12/premiu/.

Gabriela, spune-mi te rog, fondul de ten Revlon Colorstay are putere mare de acoperire? Trebuie sa imi cumpar un fond de ten, dar as dori unul care sa nu aiba un efect de masca pe fata. Vreau doar sa uniformizeze culoarea tenului astfel incat sa arate cat mai natural. Acesta ar fi potrivit pentru mine?

Merci anticipat pentru raspuns.

Răspunde

Gabriela

Are medie spre mare, dar îl poţi face să arate natural, căci nici mie nu-mi place efectul de mască. Eu umezeam un bureţel şi aşa îl întindeam pe faţă şi arăta bine, exact cum zici tu, uniformiza culoarea tenului. Faza cu buretele umed e valabilă la orice fond de ten, dacă vrei să nu absoarbă buretele prea mult fdt şi să arate natural pe faţă.
