I wasn't offended by you at all. I'm sorry if you thought I was (I was actually referring more to Pietja's post with my second one.) But you're right, we should stick to the topic.

What's shifting me smoothly is my boyfriend's birthday present is FINALLY shipped after being in processing for two weeks. It's on time in transit and is supposed to arrive tomorrow. Woohoo!

wow, I go away for a few weeks and somehow this topic has turned into a debate lol.

Whats shifting me smoothly right now is the cup of hot cocoa in my left hand after a chilly 28 F/ -2 C day.

Well, Mother Theresa once said (forgive me if I misquote) that "If we judge people we won't have the time to love them". I couldn't agree more, yet I'm not able follow this advice.
Hm... sucks for me?


It was 22:30, -10 degrees outside and helluva strong wind.
As much as I hated the idea of going outside, I had to go for a smoke. I don't smoke indoors or in cars, only on fresh air. Well, I couldn't say if the air was fresh outside because my nose turned red just few seconds after I went out.
So, I took a walk, shaking hands trying to lit a cig., snow cracking under my feet, empty streets.
And then I hear a question through the sound of howling wind "got a smoke?". I turn around, and I see my neighbours daughter. She recognized me and, well, got a little scared. Why? Because of her reputation of a "good daughter". You know, good grades, good on piano and few other attributes.
I smiled, and handed her a pack. She hesitated, but then pulled out one, I lited it.
We stood together without saying a word, trembling on cold. She finished her, looked at me and asked "will this stay between us". I noded, smiled and replied "only if you'll treat me next time".
The rest... will be surely continued, as she guaranteed it to me Very Happy.


You know, I don't know 'bout you people, but I love meeting people on the streets when it's dark and the weather is unpleasing. Drunks, bored teenagers, once - a junkie, dumped women, and as the example above - even your "perfect" neighbours. For me, it has some magic in it, people are simply different than during the day. More poetic, mysterious... I don't know, just somehow better.

Another thing that shifts me smoothly would have to be sun showers. I love them so.

What shifted me smoothly today...

I gave my boyfriend his birthday gift, which he loved, and we went out for the day. Not only did he buy me a cute little bell to make a necklace out of, but he said this:

"I wish I could have proposed to you today..."

Wow, I bet that left you in a good mood for the rest of the week santa. If he ever does propose to you, here's a future congratulation and best of luck for the both of you.

What's shifting me smoothly right now is the fact that a hot shower had never felt so good in my entire life.

What shifts me smoothly is that I successfully finished my college term on a positive note, which includes finishing my furniture making project. It was a stepstool that I cut, planed, chiseled, sanded, and glued all by hand. It's going to be a christmas present to my dad and I bet he'll love it.

Thanks. Dante always leaves me with a wonderful feeling. We've been talking about marriage and the like. I'm so happy with him.

What shifts me smoothly would have to be music that is created by people like Nujabes, J dilla (RIP), Amon Tobin, Flying Lotus, and Psyche origami.

For those interested and havn't seen it, the Iron man 2 trailer: http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/ironman/

Points of interest (some SPOILERS: Highlight to see)

- Firstly, it seems the government wants Tony's tech, since he arrogantly declared himself as Iron Man. Sam Rockwell's Justin Hammer appears in the coutroom scene with Don Cheadle's Rhodey.
- Tony arrived to the Stark Expo in style. Women in Iron Man inspired costumes dancing.
- Mickey Rourk's Ivan Vanko (Whiplash) tearing up Stark's ride and showing off his namesake.
- It's implied Rhodey gets his War Machine armour from Justin Hammer, a rival arms dealer. A frenemy relationship with Tony?
-The last shot: War Machine and Iron Man standoff with Iron Monger inspired soldiers. Stark's wearing a new suit. It has a triangle shape now, as opposed to the circular one. For those who have read the comics, this has been a staple feature on Stark's "Extremis" armour. The suit in that shot also looks almost exactly like the Extremis one, which could mean Stark can fit all the pieces in a special suitcase and have it form round him without special machinery. And connect with any computer around the world... Probably not....

SPOILERS end there.

It's a kickass trailer.

Shifting me smoothly, tomorrow I get to spend the day with my boyfriend for his birthday. First half of the day out on the town with he and a friend, and the night in our own hotel room. Just he and I. <3

Every time I book a hotel room for the obvious, this kind of tune plays in my mind. Very Happy.


So, hotel rooms shift me smoothly Very Happy.

I had a good laugh because of my friends misfortune. Yes, that kind of man I am Very Happy.

I was walking towards clinic to check my health, as I wasn't feeling too well (the verdict was that I have a flu, no, not a swine one Very Happy) and I met my friend along the way.

She had a bigarse black eye and I asked her if that's a "present" from her boyfriend. Wich, I know longer than her and I can assure anyone that he wouldn't hurt a kitten. She, irritated, says that everyone says bad thing about him and they're "totally sure" that she experienced domestic violence.

Well, in some way, yes Very Happy.

As I persuaded more, she told me what happened.

She and her boy live in a small apartament with a smallest bedroom I've ever saw - bed, night table and a poster on the wall, nothing else that could count as a furniture/decoration.
And, well, they've decided to spice up their "bed life", decided to act "very wild". Unfortunatelly, when the girl was on top of him, playing jockey, she slipped, and with a "wild" force she was K.O.'ed by a nearby night table by falling onto it.

It was -16 degrees and I was standing there, coughing and laughing because of what she said. She added that it's not funny, not because it hurts, but because she can not show anywhere with her boyfriend without being stared at as a victim of domsetic violence.

What shifts me smoothly...waking up next to a scruffy, sleepy, but very happy boyfriend, walking out of a hotel room to remove the "Do not disturb" card from the door and hobbling to the front desk without even bothering to brush out disshevelled hair. Then giggling when the clerk asks us how our stay was.
