Use the force

Star Wars is on the telly!!! Love Star Wars!
Love it even more when trying to be smart and creative, if I only use the force all will turn out good. The thing is, Harrison Ford as Han Solo is such a sweet distraction I can actually be very bothered. And Sir Alec Guinness brilliant acting skills are always a joy to watch.

Don´t disrespect

The coaches of swedish soccer team should need to not only take some style classes, but also to learn how to give bad news to people. Getting the information that you will not play the biggest championship there is by voicemail is not good, regardless the reason why.
Feel really sorry for Alexander Östlund.

Summertime and the living is - should be - easy

And I´m not saying it´s not, but it´s like The Craze Before Christmas - everything´s supposed to be done before Midsommar. No easy living. But it´s lovely to finally be able to stroll around in a dress, no jacket or cardigan needed, and enjoy the light and crisp Stockholms-, or should I say, Kungsholmskvällen.

I was supposed to go straight home and work, work, work after a job meeting, I really have to get my shit to the accountant or he will most probably drop my sorry ass as a client. Mygod. Really have to shape up, but as I wrote - I can change, yes I can.

And regarding to that - no, I am not in love, so don´t forget it, just had some kind of epiphany because of some stuff that happened to happen with someone. But that´s it. (Pheow!)

Anyhow - I was supposed to go straight home and work and I almost did. With a brief stop at favourite shop Katitzi. Loved the books, love the shop. Of course I found something that I didn´t even know I needed.
A black/white cardigan from übergenious Nina Jarebrink.
Now I not only have performance anxiety regarding my work, but guilty bittersweet pleasure regarding my finances.
Oh, whattefuck. If I die tomorrow I´ve least died with good taste, huh?

I can change

I guess it´s as the swedish saying goes: "When the Devil gets old, he becomes religious".
Or similar. Anyhow, this goes out to kind of a special someone. And no, don´t ask and start breaking the balls I don´t have, cause I won´t tell.
And this ain´t no sweettalking goin´on, this is for real, gotta' believe me, I'm telling the truth.

(Snoop talking)
Hey yo niece check this out girl
Now I know you got that bad man right there
You aint even tripping off of him
But he doing all of that for you
He got this, he got that
He’s off the hizzle I mean when you find one like that
You got to make that change girl
Cuz they don’t come too often
And when they do come
You gotta be smart enough to know when to change
Like Sam Cooke say change gon’ come niece
And you better believe that

As I look back on all that I've done to you
My biggest regrets
The things that I never could do
I see the light now baby it's shining through
Gotta give up the game
Yeah I got some changin’ to do
I won’t get high if you want it
Get that straight 9 to 5 if you want it
Keep my ass home at night if you want it
Whatever you need me to do
When you talk I’ma listen
Give you all that attention you missing
Man I swear I’ma handle my business
Just like a real woman should do

I can change
I can change (you know I can change baby)
I can change
For you (you know I can stop baby)
I can change (you know I change baby)
I can change
I can change
For you (you know I can stop baby)

I’ll give up all the places I used to go
Stay out the club
Stay home because I’m with you
I’ll give up all those boys that I used to know
They don’t compare
Baby I swear it’s the truth (you know it’s the truth baby)
So I’m through with the men
Yeah that’s right I give up on the pimpin’
Boy I’m gonna repent from my sinnin’
If that’s what you want me to do
I’ll get right if you want it
Go to church
Get baptized if you want it
Boy you opened my eyes and I’m gonna
Be much better for you
Baby believe me
Baby believe me

I can change (you know I can change baby)
I can change (know I can change baby)
I can change
For you
I can change
I can change
I can change
For you

(Snoop’s Rap)
Take me to the river
And baptize my soul
I’m so outta control
Needing someone to hold
Man it’s cold I aint been clubbin’, drinkin’, or smokin’
I’m focused
Bowin’ down every night prayin’ and hopin’
I’m trying to figure out a way
But I just don’t know how to say
But I’m rearrangin’
Hopefully I’m changin’
And you can see that
Baby cuz it’s hard for me
Kinda sorta odd for me
But aint nothing to it
If you need me to do it I guess…

I can change
I can change
I can change
For you (I’ll give up on the pimpin’ for you)
I can change
I can change
I can change
For you (sing it again y’all)
I can change
I can change
I can change
For you
I can change
I can change
I can change
For you

You know I can stop baby
Gotta believe me (you gotta belive me baby)
Gotta believe me (mmm yeah)
I telling the truth
You know I can stop baby
Gotta believe me (believe me)
Gotta believe me (believe me yeah)
I’m telling the truth
Get baptized if you want it
This time I mean it
Gotta believe me (this time I mean it)
Gotta believe me I'm telling the truth


Haven´t had time nor energy to blog in the last couple of weeks but here is some of what´s been on in the world of Gonzalita:
  • brunches galore - love week end brunches!
  • reading - being a book reviewer is fun although demanding, but above all - you discover the reason why the classics are, well, classics.
  • working out - got tired of feeling like Jabba the Hut. I know I´m not FATfat, but I wouldn´t mind a lighter, leaner and more toned physique.
  • working - checking out stuff for next season, planning stuff, presenting ideas.
  • drinking coffee - more coffeine, less alcohol makes Gonzalita a more awake girl .
  • watching Nip/Tuck Season 3 - my favourite surgeouns are back!!! Hell Mary and all the angels above, sunday evenings are yet again glorious!
  • cleaning up - living in a small place is highly demanding.

Santa madre, Santana!

Went with mom, dad and lil'bro' to see Carlos Santana perform yesterday and was totally blown away! Fabulous! Hearing Smooth and Corazon Espinado live was just - awesome. People were dancing in the aisles, just as it´s supposed to be!

I´ve listened to Black Magic Woman since before I was born (unfortunately he didn´t play it this time) and I´ve really liked his funky, international beats, long before his supersuccess with Supernatural. The man is a musical genious.

And lots and lots more than that, check out where his various projects are listed, from fab shoe designs, fragrances and wine to stuff that really make a difference like the Milagro Foundation.
Not that shoes don´t matter, but considering a big part of this worlds population doesn´t even own a pair of shoes - you get the picture.
