Cheers

Iunie 30, 2008

Nu pot sa uit cat de adorabil a fost Joey in episodul ala! In Anglia fiind, a vazut genericul de inceput al serialului Cheers si a zambit entuziasmat, apoi s-a intristat din ce in ce mai tare.

 

The thing is… de obicei suntem de acord, de multe ori she’s inspirational, dar just this once i disagree with my cherie. Care, bref,  simte ca s-a „stricat” Vama pentru ca nu-si mai schimba muzica, iar in timp ce noi ne variem gusturile pentru muzica si carti si filme, acolo sta timpul in loc. Dupa cum spuneam, i disagree. Iata si de ce.

 Cred ca Vama e un loc „special”, in toate sensurile acordate acestui cuvant, pentru ca vamaiotii adevarati sau de weekend ii acorda libertatea sa ramana asa. Gandeste-te la locurile clasice: la stuf si in expirat este mereu lume, in timp ce pe la mushroom bate vantul si la shire sunt cativa rataciti. Pentru ca oamenii nu vor ca Vama sa se schimbe, nu mi s-a parut vreodata ca accepta noul si totusi au fost cateva schimbari de nuanta, in virtutea evolutiei (gen wi-fi-ul de la bibi si expirat).

 Depinde ce-ti doresti. Daca iei vama ca pe o oaza neschimbata, unde te simti comfy tocmai din cauza asta, accepti playlistul care se schimba doar in proportie de 20%. Daca vrei sa creasca in pas cu tine, sa devina usor mai trendy si mai matur pe an ce trece, cred ca pornesti de la asteptarile gresite. Nu ne dorim sa locuim in vama, vorba lui Bogdan. Si nu trebuie sa mergem doar ca sa semnam condica. E ca intr-o relatie: daca nu mai merge, nu mai merge si gata. Luam o pauza sau o taiem de tot. Cu amendamentul ca nu putem schimba partenerul, pentru ca nu e doar al nostru. Daca toti ar vrea sa se schimbe, s-ar pierde ideea de vama in care toata lumea e la fel doar pentru ca e acolo. Vama trebuie sa placa tuturor, that’s the charm of it, si conservarea ei more or less la fel ne aminteste de fiecare data de ce ne-a placut in the first place. Daca vrei alta muzica, ai un ipod foarte sexi la care poti asculta ce vrea corazonul tau all day long pana ajungi seara in expirat. But, of course, we can agree to disagree 🙂

Pentru ca sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name.

 

Anunțuri

Dupa o perioada mult prea zbuciumata sentimental pentru gusturile mele, am revenit fericiti la normal, asa cum ne place si cum stim ca trebuie sa fie. Big girls don’t cry ….anymore. E adevarat ca am reusit sa tuflesc un examen intre timp, concomitent cu umflatul pleoapelor de la atata bocit deznadajduit, dar a trecut totul firesc….deci total opus fata de cum a inceput.

Si am avut parte de prima Vama asa cum e vama de fapt pentru mine, cu Bogdan, cu multa lume, cu clatite pe plaja, cu nisip pe sub unghii si praf prin par, cu Frontiera si papanasi, cu meciuri de fotbal seara si crema de protectie solara, asternuturi albe si piele rosie, cu Stuf si Expirat, cu lectura in compania valurilor, la adapostul umbrelei si, bonus, cu masinuta mea bionica, la a doua sa prezenta pe litoral 🙂 Si a fost tare,tare frumos! Si maine, dupa scarbosul examen deja insuportbil de chirurgie, plecam la Covasna, sa ne rasfatam un weekend intreg…pentru ca meritam!

Asa ca, pentru cei care s-au intrebat ce s-a intamplat cu mine in ultima vreme, un scurt rezumat emotionalo-relational: pauza de doua saptamani (in care trebuie sa recunosc ca m-am distrat), impacare 3 zile (in care iarasi m-am distrat), despartire (imposibil de suportat, asezonata cu plansete si fata lunga, deprimata), impacare dupa 2 zile (gen yeeeeeeeeeeey!!!) si o continua stare de fericire ever since (ok, nu a trecut mult, i can grant you that, insa e fericirea aia care ne caracterizeaza si pe care o cam pierdusem along the past months si sunt foarte happy ca we got the groove back!).

Devine de inteles de ce nu am mai avut chef sa scriu?! 🙂

keep breathing…
