She already has a style. I associate her with one of my 3 favorite painters (Gaudi, Frida and Miró). Her style is very similar to Miró's. When I see his paintings, I feel like those come from a more mature version of my sister!

That guy also wrote that Murray simply waits for his opponents' errors. How can people watch tennis and say these things? Can't they see the brilliance of these players? It must be a sad and sorry life to be finding top players so lacking. For me, even though I can see areas of improvement for Nole, Rafa, and yes, even the great god Federer, the interesting thing is how they compensate for the lesser parts of their games and also the psychological war on the court. Not just between the players but also within the player himself.
Bla, bla, bla! Mostly you just care for how hot they look.

Ok, I am joking. For me, liking Nole is also about his imperfections. If I were to mind mostly about the perfect, beautiful, delicate game, I would fangirl Roger. But that is boring.

That painting was a project for school. She had to "make" a project about the Holocaust. Most kids showed up with a dissertation, she did that.


Ok, I am going to swim now. There is a perfect Olympic pool 5 mins for here, I pay 2€ for 95 mins.

Yes, I am simply a fangirl. I realize that as a female I have no valid opinions or insights.

It is true that I don't have any ugly players as faves.

Some imperfections are endearing and others not so much. The overhead is not endearing. I don't understand it and I don't like it when others laugh about it although I accept they are right.

Demeanor on the court means a lot to me. Murray has the kind of game I normally like, but I can't stand the way he is on the court. Also he mumbles. I have tried and tried to like him because of his game, but I can't. I don't dislike him though -- except sometimes when he really annoys me. Roger's on court demeanor (well, off court too) is just --- words can't describe my feelings.

Wow. That's creative and a good use of lateral thinking.

Enjoy your swim! I remember the days when I liked swimming. It was a good few years ago, though. I more or less hate water now.

That's awful. I never like large logistical processes at the factories as there are dangerous things that could go wrong. Reall very sad.

This is turning into a very melancholy thread!

What a shameful thing to do by those two men.

Sorry!

I find a happy story.

U.C.Berkeley is considered one of our premier law schools. It's really shocking to me that these irresponsible young men are enrolled there.

What's dinner in your homes tonight?

I made myself pasta with cheddar cheese and ham. Simple but decent and tasty.

I think it would have been better if someone else had made it, though.
