Coming up...

Confesso que tenho tido uns dias a roçar o infernal com muita coisa para fazer, e estou a passar por uma fase de writers block intensa. 
De qualquer maneira, não vejo melhor forma de fazer um comeback do que com uma série de posts sobre a minha noite preferida do ano: os Óscares. 

Quanto aos filmes, só vi ainda dois (The Help e The Iron Lady), sobre os quais será o meu primeiro post sobre a cerimónia deste ano. 
Passarei então ao best and worst dress ao abrigo da minha humilde perspectiva, como aliás já fiz o ano passado aqui, e aqui
Sem falar que Billy Cristal was back, o que claramente merece um post só dedicado a isso.
Não será hoje porque sinceramente tou sem coragem. Até já*

Of Karma

Oh boy...she's the ultimate bitch, that's for sure. And she is everywhere. She's like the Big Guy up there. Omnipresent. Just waiting to show up uninvited, normally with a big evil plan to make sure that we pay our dues. She's ruthless, blunt, and she has no manners. Basically, she's a beautiful savage. Has no mercy, and a twisted sense of humor. She's the dark side in all of us. Those cruel words we said, or that time we turned our backs on someone in need. She doesn't forget any of it. She's a freakin' sniper that never misses the shot. She's FBI, CIA, KGB, all in one. No matter how hard we try to escape, she will come after us. But, of course, there's the good karma. Well...that one rarely makes an entrance. And if it does, it's barely noticed. Because, obviously, it's the mistakes that cost us the most. Things have consequences and impact on ourselves and others around us. And forgiveness is a very important part of moving on, get some closure, and maybe (just maybe) fall on the good will of bad bitchy Karma. If forgiveness doesn't come, we are most likely doomed to her demands. And that's when the real lesson kicks in. And, damn, I've learned a few the hardest way imaginable. God works in mysterious ways; Karma shows you everything directly and crystal clear, with a bonus: a punch in the stomach and a kiss on the cheek. She's a bad ass chick that will mess with your head. And don't worry...she will get to you too.
