Amelie in Wonderland part. II: The headless Queen

8 Dec

Suddenly the tea party was interrupted by the sound of thunders and we could hear the steps of the Queen’s army quickly approaching. Not knowing what to do Amelie stayed in her chair, slowly drinking tea and eating a cupcake.

- Hurry Amelie, if she gets us she’ll cut our heads off!!!!

- Who?, she asked.

- Amelie, The  Red Queen!!!!!!

- But, but…i saw her downstairs and she seemed nice!!

- You better start running now… just saying, said a voice.

- Who are you?, asked Amelie.

- My name is Amelie, but everyone here knows me as the Cheshire Kitty.

- Oh, i see Amelie is a very common name here!!

- Yes, and we’re all mad here, so you two better start running!

- But where to?, asked the Mad Hatter.

- See that big mirror? Just close your eyes and walk through it, you’ll be safe if you’re fast enough!!

Soon they found themselves in the snow, it was cold and they had no idea where to go. Luckily they found two people sitting on a bench, under the snow…

-Hey there, who are you?

- I am TweedleDee and this is my sister TweedleDum. We’re waiting for the bus.

- But there is no road here, i don’t think there’s a bus either.

- Foreigners, the twins replied at the same time.

- I found you!!!!! Now you’re going to regret not inviting me to that damm party!!!!!!!

They were so impressed with the twins that they forgot about the evil queen. Now they had nowhere to run to…

- You, little girl, you’ll be painting those damm white roses, and i want them red!!! Red like blood, red like cherries, red like…like tomatoes!!! I just want them red, capiche?

- Noooooo that is not red, that is orange!!! Orange like….oranges!! I want them red, stupid girl, red…REEEEEEEEED!!!!

Amelie kept painting as fast as she could, but the queen kept screaming like mad. They are all truly mad here, she thought.

It was so cold her fingers were turning blue…and that damm queen kept screaming. Just when she was about to shout she saw something shining between the tree’s branches…

- An axe and a knife?

- Shhh grab them Amelie…grab them and do what you came here for, said a voice behind the tree.

- But who are you?, asked Amelie.

- I am Amylee, but most people here know me as the White Queen.

- And where is your crown? Why should i trust you?

- I don’t like crowns, i prefer teacups. And i doubt you’re in a position to choose, dear…

She thought the White Queen was right after all, so grabbed the axe and the knife. Right after grabbing the magic weapons she felt fire inside her, fire burning inside …her clothes changed colour too and she became someone totally different.

- WTF? Said the Red Queen. And those were her last words.

- Off with your head!!!!! Said Amelie.

- Ok, now i want my cupcake back!!

Mmmmm cupcakes…

Beware of wolves?

30 Oct

That’s what the sign says, but shouldn’t the wolf be aware of the little girl?

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest.  She loved dressing in red, said it was “her colour”, so everyone called her Little Red Riding Hood.

One morning, she asked her mother if she could go to visit her grandmother while they were partying in the city, as it had been awhile since they’d seen each other, then packed a basket full of goodies to take over to her grandmother and left.

At the same time, the wolf was heading to the girl’s grandmother house too. The wolf…that girl drove him crazy. He was madly in love with her, but she  kept ignoring him. Maybe it was the hair, the fangs, the smell, or maybe she didn’t like guys with 4 legs, who knows.  One day he got desperate and thought that maybe if he made friends with her family things would be different. Her parents weren’t home so he decided visiting the grandma. While he was on his way, he could smell Red Riding Hood on her way too…what a great idea, we’ll meet there!!!, he said to himself. Unfortunately the old grumpy woman wans’t too friendly, and he was hungry so…he had to eat her.

After eating, he looked into through Granny’s wardrobe to find a nightgown that he liked, knowing the girl was about to arrive.  He added a cap to hide his ears and waited. A few minutes later, Red Riding Hood knocked on the door.  The wolf jumped into bed and pulled the covers over his nose.  “Who is it?” he called in a cackly voice.

-  It’s me, Little Red Riding Hood.”

-  Oh how lovely!  Do come in, my dear,” said the wolf.

When Little Red Riding Hood entered the little house, she could barely recognize her Grandmother.

- Granny!  Your voice sounds so weird, are you ok?”,  she asked.

- Oh, I just have a cold,” replied the wolf coughing.

- But Grandmother!  What big ears you have,” said Little Red Riding Hood as she edged closer to the bed.

- The better to hear you with, my dear,” replied the wolf.

- But Grandmother!  What big eyes you have,” said Little Red Riding Hood.

- The better to see you with, my dear,” replied the wolf.

- But Grandmother!  What big mouth you have,” said Little Red Riding Hood her voice quivering slightly.

- The better to kiss you with, my dear,” roared the wolf and he leapt out of the bed and began to chase the little girl.

-You are not my granny!!!!!What have you done to her?

-Of course not, I am the wolf and I love you!!!!Who cares about your old grandmother, she wont make you happy like I will!!!

-Omg you annoying freak, I thought I made clear I am not interested in you!!!What have you done to my granny?, she said while looking at the wolf’s belly.

-I’m sorry, I didn’t want to, I just…I love you!!!

-She ran outside, shouting: “Help!  Wolf!” as loudly as she could.

Outside, next to an old stump, she found an axe and then walked inside the house again. Where are you, my hairy friend?, she said. Come on, I never really liked that old woman anyway, come outside so we can go dancing to celebrate…

The poor idiot then came out of the wardrobe and, so fast he didn’t even feel it, she cut his head off. In the last second, he could even see her smile…

Verne’s & Jules’ first vacations part II: meeting Chucky & Damien

30 Aug

Knowing that school will start soon again, my two little creepy creatures wanted to spend the last day of vacations playing on the beach. I just covered myself in sunscreen and sat there watching them play.

 

After a while they both needed to dry, despite how they love water everyone knows the damage it could cause in their tiny metallic gears.

I was almost falling asleep, listening to the sound of waves, when someone hit me with a shell. I looked and just saw two awfully ugly kids growling and creeping on the sand. Then, out of the blue, Jules started screaming…

- Chucky!!!!!Chucky and Damien!!!!

- You know those…things?, i asked.

- They are my cousins!!!

 

- Hey Jules!!!, how’s you little one?, they both said at the same time.

- I’m great! Now i live with Verne and this woman in a very nice castle, we’re on vacations now. How is the family? Have you seen my parents?

- Oh everyone is fine, they are touring around Russia now, we hate the cold so decided to spend a few days in this island. We’re staying in that cave, very comfy!!

- That is great, please do tell them i miss them, and that i am waiting for them in Ame’s castle, ok?

- Sure we will!!!

 

I gave them both the landmark to my place, so they could find Jules in case his family decides to pick him up someday. They were chatting for hours, and even Verne started to like the two scary kids (they’re soooo damm ugly) and asked them to visit us sometime. We layed on the beach, ate some marshmallows and watched the sun set in the last day of vacations.

The next morning me and the creepies headed home, and Chucky and Damien decided to stay in the island a couple of weeks more, before joining the rest of the crew in Russia.

Something tells me we’ll see those two again…

A night at the Titanic

28 Aug

Ever wondered what would’ve happened in Titanic (the film) if Leonardo Di Caprio saved his life? Maybe they would’ve married, have pretty kids and so…or maybe they would’ve realised they had nothing in common and just break up. Or maybe they both joined Second Life and live happily in the virtual version of the ship ;p

One of the best things in SL is you can be able to explore the virtual version of cities, planets, beautiful landscaped and yes, even the Titanic!! And no signs of icebergs here, actually the only thing that can put you in danger there is some occasional singer i am not going to mention.  I will just say he makes ME sound like a good singer.

Thursday night we were lucky and HE wasn’t there, the singer was actually not bad at all, the stars were shining and the moon was bright and we were looking gorgeous as ever.

 

Except a small area at the entrance that’s stuffed with ugly vendors, the rest is very well decorated and well, the company made it even better.

You dont get to see Jops in a tux often, so i had to get the chance and make some pics to get some graphic proof of this moment!!

 

Thank you for the last 6 months of my SL.

 

 

Btw, if you want to spend a quiet night, just dancing and chatting and…whatever else you wanna do while dancing ( ;p) just grab this taxi to the Titanic and explore it yourself!

Faith or Joke?

21 Aug

These past days i’ve been thinking a lot about faith, religion and why we people do certain stuff. I’ve been raised as a catholic, and i was quite happy with going to church every sunday and so on, til something happened and i started to change my mind and my point of view, not my faith. Also i was always the kind of person that questions almost everything, i’m curious about everything too and that made me have a mind of my own since very young. I respect other people’s choices, but certain things just make me very angry and dissapointed at the same time.

So, millions of youngsters from all over the world spend their money in some low cost trip (considering the discount on flights, the free accomodation in colleges, 80% discount in transport and tickets for 3 meals per day) in visiting another country and suffer the heat to be walking around and collapsing the public transport for a week…oh and getting drunk in parks!!! Sounds good, doesnt it?

I would be very happy with that, done it myself but…these people are supposed to be moved by their faith and their religous ideas, and are also supposed to believe in a guy that preaches stuff that scares me sometimes.

I know i said i respected other people’s ideas, and i do but…honestly, if Jesus could talk to them, don’t you think he’d rather the millions of euros spent in the Pope’s visit to be spent in feeding the hungry, buying medicines or helping those who suffer, those who see their kids die just because they can’t drink clean water?

And i also doubt the motivations of some of these youngsters, when they see a homeless guy beggin in the street, and they sit 4 meters from him to eat like 20 pizzas without even giving him a portion. Makes me wanna puke.

And all this payed with public money and tax refunds, while people are kicked out of their houses because they cannot afford their mortgage.

Finally they left, and i really hope things change in the minds of those who think they are good enough to tell others how to live their lives. Not sure of the english expression, but they should live like they preach.

Enuff said ;p

Missing

13 Aug

 

Sometimes it is funny how you never notice how people appreciate you til you leave. Yesterday i left my old job (RL) after 4 years, and people i hardly talked to came and hugged me and told me how good i am and how sad was seeing me go. And they were honest.On the other hand, people i would’ve wanted to say bye left without even shaking hands with me (LOL).

It has been a hard hard week, doing both jobs at once and next week i have even more job interviews so who knows where i might end…

And sorry i can’t help it, i miss YOU. Yes, i promised not to miss you too much and have fun and blah blah…but i do.

I miss your laugh in the morning, all that squeeeeeeeeeeek and the cappuccino machine. And i miss the nights too…

 

 

P.S: Soon i will continue those tales you love ;p

Turn off the tv and read a book

8 Aug

Yesterday i saw something on tv that socked me and made me wonder how will the future be when the teenagers of today become the adults of tomorrow.

This tv reporter was on the street, asking foreigners that were in the process to get the spanish nationality questions about Spain concerning history, culture, artists…ecc. They replied correctly most questions.

But, when she asked some spanish teenagers…the result was scary. Not only they didn’t know how many communities we have but, when asked about our civil war they replied stuff like:

- What war?

- Oh yes, civil war was between Spain and France (ermmm what part of CIVIL war you don’t understand?)

Then they thought 12th October was the anniversary of a football match between Spain and Malta, and that is why it is a National Holiday: because we won.

Not to mention i am sure most of them don’t even write spanish properly…how are they suppossed to learn another language?

Suddenly i felt embarrassed and, at the same time, very sorry for them. I do love internet and computers, and i do watch tv sometimes too, but i also enjoy reading a good book, watching a film, reading a newspaper to know what’s going on in the rest of the world…

And in other countries it’s not much better i believe. Still remember when some guy from Canada told me Barcelona is the capital of Spain, and many north americans think Spain is next to Mexico…

I am thankful for the education i received, both at school and from my parents. Even the television was better!!!

Hoping i am dead before those idiotized teenagers get to rule the world, i’ll leave you with a tribute to the tv show that trained my imagination when i was a kid. They said stuff like. turn off the tv and read a book. Those were the days when tv taught kids useful stuff, opened their imagination and their minds…

And yes, i’ll post some new fashion pics tomorrow.

Doofy & Snow White, just another bizarre love story

29 Jul

Being a princess isn’t easy, specially when your dad gets married with an evil woman that is jealous of your youth and beauty. Snow White got tired of all those boring princes that only wanted the secksin and her dad’s money so she was quite glad when her stepmother sent her to the dark forest…

No animals , no people, nothing. She was about to die of boredom when suddenly she started hearing some music…Following the sound she found a club in the middle of the forest and there he was, giving it all on the dancefloor.

- Hey pretty!!! My name is Doofy, how are you?

- Hello, i am Snow White, but my friends call me Snowhite. I am a bit lost in the forest.

- Oh, don’t worry i can take you home. Used to live with my 6 brothers but i got tired of them. Wanna see where i live?

She was hungry and needed to pee badly, so was quite happy to go somewhere nice, and that little dwarf looked harmless…

 

- Ohhh i love roses, thank you!!

- A girl like you should always have roses.

- I like you, Doofy.

Snowhite was feeling safe with that sweet romancing dwarf, they danced and danced and finally rested a bit on the beach.

 

- Mmm Doofy, you have a big thing in your pocket!

- Oh…that…that is my mobile phone sweety. Anyway, do you wanna see the rest of the place?

- Sure, do you have a toilet?

- Ermm…yes i guess…

 

Doofy said they’d play a game, and after playing she could pee. Snowhite agreed, after all she was very curious about this guy and always liked playing.

 

- Ooh a cross! Dad’s wife has one, but i never knew what was it for.

- It is a very funny toy, just let me adjust the cuffs and…voila!

After a while she was sweating lots, so Doofy gently offered to help her get undressed… and they continued playing.

 

After an hour or so Doofy and Snowhite were both tired, and the idea of a massage seemed nice…

 

 

- Oh, almost forgot, next week it’s my birthday. My 6 brothers will visit, wanna join the party?

- Sure Doofy, i am not going anywhere…

Can a fantasy become a nightmare?

17 Jul

 

Second Life is a virtual world, a place to play, have fun, explore, laugh, love, and also a place to meet some people you would never have the chance to meet in your Real Life.

In my case i joined SL because a friend said i’d like it, it’s fun, we can do stuff together there…sounds familiar? Since that day, around a year and a half ago, i have met friends that i’d love to keep in my life doesn’t matter if i keep playing SL or not. I have also loved, i have been stupid and i have learned from my mistakes. There was a time when my SL was affecting negatively my Real Life, i got too involved in things that i should’ve never known about.

We all have lives, some have partners, and some have partners that also play SL. I think the most important thing is being honest, first with yourself and then with the people that surround you.  I really believe what goes around, comes around…keep that in mind.

And no, this is not about me. It is about a person i know that is suffering and i don’t know how to help. Wish i could do something to make you feel better.

I couldn’t be happier in SL. Someone in SL that makes your RL better, happier, brighter and helps you achieve your goals? A great friend that makes you smile all the time? Yes, that exists. :)

 

Verne & Jule’s first vacations part 1

13 Jul

Summer’s here and Verne finnished school, his results weren’t as good as i expected but i think we all deserve some nice vacations. We asked Jules if he wanted to so somewhere, some place he wanted to visit but, since the poor creature never left his circus before, they let me choose the destination.

Looking for the closest teleporting station, and checking all the fares i found out they don’t have special prices for creepy kids in Second Life, so we decided to do something different and travel by balloon!!

The two creepies wanted to travel in their own balloon, maybe so they could chat and play without their annoying mom, so i let them do it.

 

- You two, fasten your balloonbelt right now, you’re gonna fall!!!

- I am safe in my jar mommy, don’t worry!! , said Verne.

Poor Jules was too terrified of heights to say anything, but i could see his tiny clockwork body sliding out fo the safety belt and imagined him crashing on the ground…

- Ok, you two, now jump on my back so we can all continue without having to regret any accident.

- But i want my balloon mommy!!

- I will buy you a balloon Verne, now jump on my back!

 

Finally they did and we could continue out trip…

 

- And where are we going mom?

- It is a surprise, you’ll both like it.

- And how long will it take to get there?

- I am not sure, depends on the wind, the traffic…

- And what will we do there?

- We’ll rest and have fun!

- Mommy, i want to pee!!!

- Damm kids!!!

 

To be continued…
