I Will Not Pee 4 A Week!!!!

I just have received the 

BEST Christmas present EVER!!!
My sister sent it to me from Canada...

Apart from the sweetness of the card (that made me cry an ocean - I don't know if at this moment I have enough water in my body, I think I am not going to pee for a week or so...), she sent me a book...

It is a compilation of quotes and thoughts by Jim Henson, the creator of The Muppets, and compiled/edited by his daughter Cheryl.

The book is awesome, beautiful and GREEN!

The title is like that song from Kermit 
"It's Not Easy Being Green!"

The introduction of the book says:

"We chose to use it as the title of this book
[regarding using the song as the title of the book]
because its lyrics capture not only the feelings of Kermit the Frog but a universal message that it's okay to be different,
to embrace what makes you special,
and to be proud of it".
I so much love my sister...
What a better way to tell me so many things?
Well, just if I post here the content of the card will you see why I cried like I don't remember crying in a long, long time.

Here you have the video of the song and the lyrics...
Thanks millions Cala-Sito...

[Como le decias a mama cuando estabas pequeña, te quiero mas arriba del cielo y mas abajo de la tierra...]

ARTIST: Muppets
TITLE: It's Not Easy Being Green

It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green's the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
Like a mountain, or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful
And I think it's what I WANT TO BE!

Not to forget!!!

"Within the typical secondary school curriculum, homosexuals do not exist. They are 'nonpersons' in the finest Stalinist sense. They have fought no battles, held no offices, explored nowhere, written no literature, built nothing, invented nothing and solved no equations. The lesson to the heterosexual student is abundantly clear: homosexuals do nothing of consequence. To the homosexual student, the message has even greater power: no one who has ever felt as you do has done anything worth mentioning".

Gerald Unks

But they have been PAIs, they have been successful and happy!!!
And they have had the best of all gifts...
...the promise from their friend that if their kids are gay will not suffer what they suffer...

A Phone Call...

A Phone call that was made...

that just made you tremble...
that just made you believe more and more in what you think...
that finished in...
"I will call you later"
before it did even started...
Funny ha???

Christmas, time to come together...
And so I wrote, because I believe...
And so I got back a number...

I just wanted to say i am sorry if any "I am sorry" from my side was needed...
Here I am...
There you are...

Happy new year...

Leona Lewis
Run [as you have always done]

I’ll sing it
One last time for you
Then we really have to go
You’ve been the only thing
That’s right
In all I’ve done
And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we’ll make it anywhere
Away from here
Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear
Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you
Can’t raise your voice to say
To think
I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say
Our long goodbye
I nearly do
Light up
Slower slower
We don’t have time for that
All I want is
To find an easier way
To get out
Of our little heads
Have heart my dear
We’re bound to be afraid
Even if
It’s just for a few days
Making up for all this mess

When a Song Just Hit You Hard!!! And makes You feel Shit, Sexy Shit!!!

Not much of lyrics, just the needed ones...
And the rythm....
And that's it, I am in tears...

Hope you like it as much as I do...
It makes me happy,
It makes me sad...

It makes me feel alive!

This Is The Life

Oh the wind whistles down
The cold dark street tonight
And the people they were dancing to the music vibe
And the boys chase the girls with the curls in their hair
While the shy tormented youth sit way over there
And the songs they get louder
Each one better than before

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

So your heading down the road in your taxi for four
And you're waiting outside Jimmy's front door
But nobody's in and nobody's home 'til four
So you're sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew
And where you're gonna go and where you're gonna sleep tonight

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Too Silly, Too GOOD!!!

I saw this in one of my friends notes in facebook and could not resist to post it here.
Specially dedicated to Latinos del Mundo!!!

It's a romantic full moon, when Pedro said,
'Hey, mamacita, let's do Weeweechu.'

'Oh no, not now, let's look at the moon!'
said Rosita.

'Oh, c'mon baby, let's you and I do Weeweechu. I love you and it's the perfect time,'
Pedro begged.

'But I wanna just hold your hand and watch the moon.'
replied Rosita.

'Please, corazoncito, just once, do Weeweechu with me.'

Rosita looked at Pedro and said,
'OK, one time, we'll do Weeweechu.'

Pedro grabbed his guitar and they both sang.....

'Weeweechu a Merry Christmas,
Weeweechu a Merry Christmas,
Weeweechu a Merry Christmas,
and a Happy New Year.'

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.

From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.

Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:

From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,

From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,

From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

Edgar Allan Poe

WARNING: "WE" does not exist without "I"...

Lately I have been witnessed how so many new "gurus" of leadership, social entrepreneurship, etc. keep on making this strong emphasis on the "we" as the most important element of any human and organizational process...

I assume that those people are making a point that is very valid under the premise that cannot exist WE without "I"...
However today I saw a slide show in which stated clearly the countdown from the 5 more important words in Leadership...

The 5 more important words...
The 4 more important...
The 3...
The 2...
And the MOST important word is....
So far, cool...
After that, and out of the blue, in a slide that I not really understand why is there, I read:

"The least important word: I"


I lost all interest for the opinions of whoever made the slide show...
Not because different opinions are not welcomed, but because of the fact that I think stating such things as truths can mislead people, mostly young people in search for answers and that trust what "gurus" have to say...

Unfortunately, we live in a stupid world where people are taught to listen and learn from "gurus", to believe what they say, and to follow the "book"... (whatever the book is, we are all surrounded by books that we are supposed to follow...)
Instead of living in a world where young people are encouraged to live and discover by themselves life and make their own conclusions...

Well, I am here not to state a truth, but MY truth, what I believe...
I believe there cannot be WE without I.
I believe the most important word in life is "I"...
I makes us take responsibility:
I made a mistake vs. They do not listen
I believe vs. This is the truth
I feel vs. People think/say/never... (looong etc here)
My use of I has freed me...
The absence of I in some parts of my life condemned me to sorrow and self-pity, excusing myself for everything by blaming the others...


Don't get me wrong, is not about isolating myself from the world, at the en of the day "I" is the result of my interactions with all the people that I have meet in my life, the ones that I loved, the ones that I disappointed, the ones that made me laugh, the ones that I cried for... All of them...

But I feel deep inside that is so dangerous to live in a world where we are being brainwashed about it, to believe that WE is more important than I...

I believe that:
WE is crucial for US as a community of life.
I is crucial for LIFE itself.

For Dey:
The most important word is "I"
The rest is secondary.
Because I love myself and accept who I am I can be part of the world, 
I can belong to WE.
I am not looking for a solution to my problems and a scape to my sorrow in the WE...
I am looking for a sense and feeling of community in the WE.
A community of very strong, determined and powerful Is.

Love tons.

From the I that I am to the I that is reading...

Why Working On Our Strengths and Not On Our Weaknesses???!!!

Just came across a new post on my friend David Pollay's Blog that caught my attention...

While leading discovery conversations and talking about focusing on Strengths, people usually ask me why not to work on those things that we are not good at... It seems he is getting the same type of questions...

I have found several ways to explain the reasons why I find it more effective to work and focus on what we are good at; however David has mastered the usage of own tales from his family experiences...

Here is an excerpt from his post:
The other day one of you wrote to me and asked, “David, why should we focus on our strengths? We can do some more work on what we’re already good at, but why not just get right to our weaknesses?” Let me tell you about an experience I had with one of my daughters.

Making a bracelet

Last year, Eliana, who was 4 at the time, came into the kitchen with a big smile and a “rattling” box in her hands. She walked past me, climbed up on a stool, and dropped the box on the breakfast counter. I had barely enough time to read the box cover, “Jewelry Making Kit,” when Eliana said, “Papi, let’s make a bracelet.”

Eliana and I delicately strung beads on a bracelet wire. We used beads of all colors, beads with numbers, and we even spelled Eliana’s name. One hour later and our bracelet was complete.

Not a fit

There was just one problem. The bracelet did not fit Eliana’s wrist! I couldn’t believe it! After all that effort, it was too small!

I wouldn’t accept it; I had invested too much time to give up, and I didn’t want to disappoint Eliana. So I tried everything to make it work. I took off beads. I made the knots on the ends smaller. I tried to stretch the wire. And then finally, somehow I found a way to hook the bracelet, but just barely.

I was relieved until I heard a yell from the playroom five minutes later. I ran in to find Eliana, and Ariela, my then 3 year old, looking at the floor. Not only had the bracelet popped off, all the beads were now buried in our carpet!

Missing material

The bottom line was simple: The bracelet just didn’t fit. It didn’t matter what we did, there was not enough material to work with: We did not have enough wire to make the bracelet.

The same is true when we try to do great things in our lives by spending our energy focusing on our weaknesses: We get coached, we get trained, we get motivated, we get inspired, but there’s only so much we can do. Why? There’s just not enough material to work with; that’s a principal reason why they’re weaknesses.

Chronos & Kairos

My life is getting so full of miracles, coincidences, signs, smiles, intensity...
Long ago since I felt as alive as I have been feeling for the last month...
Right now, my life-time is in Kairos mood!!!
Just wanted to share that with you all...
Just that...

I found this in Marijam's Blog:
"I’m back wondering over the chronos and kairos – two approaches from old Greek to consider time. First one is the chronological sphere of time and the second is founded on belief that there is a right time for everything to happen, whereas right time has nothing to do with the clock. Both are needed in different situations [...]"

Sarah McLachlan

It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

The sky knows when its time to snow,
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow.

It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you everyday;
Open up and find a way
To give some of your own.

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like every time a rain drop falls,
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

Birds in winter have their fling
But always make it home by spring.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away;
Hold them close to your heart
Cause we’re all a part
Of the ordinary miracle.
Ordinary miracle

Do you want to see a miracle?
ohh ohh ohh, ohhh ohh ohh...

It seems so exceptional
That things just work out after all.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

Sun comes up and shines so bright
And disappears again at night.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.
ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohhh ohh...
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

The Dark Night - A Farewell Love Poem

I just found this poem in a small paper when going through my things...
It was given to me by a very special person that just some days ago came back to my life to support me in >> my new adventure... <<

Life is wise...
Give you signs...
I am listening!

The dark night is getting light,
and in this room,
a light so bright...

Wine and juice a few minutes ago;
a paper and a ugly ink left untold...

Could this be or could this not...?
What was that that I got?

I do not know,
I do not care,
it's the tears
I cannot bare!

From this heart,
oh so pure,
accept this song
to endure.

In the happy days that will come,
I leave you with my love undone.

The dark night is getting lighter,
and in this room,
a light so darker...

I love you,

Good bye!

The Questions Of My Friend...

My friend Ali wrote a post on >> his blog << that took my breathe away and I decided to ask for his permission to post it here...
Obviously he said yes!

Take a deep breathe before start reading, and read with clean mind and without thinking too much, you can read it several times after the first one, but let yourself flow with the questions the first time you read it...

Here you have...


I am a freak of nature,
and I hope you'll realize that so are you...
because if you don't,
you're missing one of the most amazing things in life...

Who are you?
Which are you?

The child?
The friend?
The one who wants to study that language?

The one who walks funny?
The one who talks more than you need?
The forgiving one?

The one who just got the best day ever?

COMPUTER >> Male Or Female??!!

A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike
English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'
'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

A student asked, 
'What gender is computer?'

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two
groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves
whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. 
Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the
feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:
  1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;
  2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;
  3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and
  4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be
Masculine ('el computador'), because:
  1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
  2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;
  3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and
  4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.
The women won.


Firstly, I am so happy I am gay!!!
It does not work like that for us... I guess...

Secondly, I am so happy I have a Mac!!!
It does not work like that neither... 
I am sure now that I got one!

You Were Always On My Mind...

Haven't happened to you?

That when you are alone you start to develop this sense of who the person that you wanna be with should make you feel?

It is not about the aspect...
It is not about what that person does, or has accomplished...
It is just about how being with that person makes you feel...
Even without knowing who that person is...
Who is that Soul Mate...

I do.
I have had those thoughts, those pre-sensing thoughts...
And I have treasured them.

That is how I know when I meet my soul mate.

What Does "DEY" Mean???!!!

I just tried this for fun,
but actually mirrored me so well that gave me a lot of food for thought!!!

What do you think?
If you know me, 

is this a reflection of me?

Try it out!


What Dey Means

You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.

You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.

People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.

You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.

At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.

You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.

You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

Your Inner Color is Green

Your Personality: You are a high achiever who is very competitive. You're bound to reach your goals, no matter how lofty.

You in Love: Picky with high standards, it's hard to find your match. You need someone as driven as you are!

Your Career: You need a high profile, challenging career to satisfy you. Consider finance, sales, or running your own company.

Get Rid Of Ur PC - Get A Mac!!!

For years I avoided Mac...

But it followed me everywhere I went...

I was so scared of not catching up fast and get used to work in a new environment.

This last two months have been the happiest ones of my relationship with any computer in the whole world...
I got a MacBook Pro!


Honestly, get rid of your PC, your laptop, whatever you have...
Get A Mac!!!
I am just happen to be extremely happy with my Mac today, when I thought I have lost a lot of things and, really easily, MyMac gave them back to me...

Hey, and what about all the things that I do now in a couple of clicks?
The most amazing videos, I upload directly to youtube...
Cartoons, movies edition, etc, etc, etc...

My only problem?
Word (Microsoft) got stuck twice...

And in two months I have restarted my MacBook Pro 0 [ZERO] times!!!


Get a Mac.*

Need More Reasons???
Here you have...

Who's Painting The Picture Of Your Life???!!!

I am in a stage of my life in which I have decided to take the colors of my rainbow and paint my life, and the world around me, using only the green of hope, life and renaissance.

I have decided to take another bold step and speak out loud.

And I am making of my life a different painting, an original one, a unique one...
And I am GREENly Happy about it.

As usual, the Madness Of My Mind of Stuart Knight arrived at the right time to reinforce my feelings, as a sign of life telling me: "I am backing you up..."



If I gave you a white canvass, a paint brush and a palette
containing the primary colours, what kind of picture you would

I'll bet that everyone would paint something different.

Some of you would splash vibrant colours across the canvass, while
others would create pastel images invoking a feeling of serenity.

And if I had the fortune to be able to observe your finished
paintings, I would see pictures of outer space, cities, open
fields, vast oceans, families sitting around a table, children
playing in a park, animals climbing trees, older couples walking
hand in hand, snow capped mountains and much more.

I could literally give thousands upon thousands of people the exact
same supplies to paint with and yet each picture would be

So then why are so many of us painting the same picture in our lives? 

We were all given a heart and we were all given a brain.
We were given lungs to breathe with, lips to talk with and hands to grab with. 
We were given the same supplies, but so many of us are painting similar pictures. 

Does everyone believe work should start at 9am? 
Does everyone believe that happiness comes with a sensible retirement plan? 
Does everyone believe that we only have one match when it comes to love? 
With all of the colours we've been given,
why are we painting pictures that look the same?

What if we turned around and told that person behind us who is trying to guide our hand that we can handle it from here? 
What would your picture look like then? 
I'll bet everyone would love it. 
Especially you!

Much love,


I am definitely loving my painting!
Here I leave you a video I found of a sports team, but the energy and the lyrics are the real reasons for the video to be here, enjoy!

A Whole New World in Youtube!!!

Recently, and due to my new Blog/Vlog, I have discovered a whole new world in Youtube...

I have my account since February 2007... 
But I just happened to create a new one for the Vlogging...

With my old account, the only thing I used to do was to watch videos and rate them and so on...
But never really got into the Youtube world...

Apart from my new Vlog, Also the story of Ana Free inspired me to get more into it.
Now, I don't have an account, I know for sure that I have a channel.
I have started to meet people there that have awesome videos and they actually give you advise on yours, on how to edit them and so on...

If you are curious, just go there...
Search for videos you like and explore the channels of the people who post them.
However what I love the most are those channels were people actually Vlog and share...

I have been invited to participate in a contest [and I have just three days Vlogging]...
There are several channels by topics, this one I have been invited is a Gay Channel...

The main idea that is considered posh right now in the Youtube World is to have collaborative channels with 5 people, so each Vlogger post each day of the week.

I will love to be Wednesday Dude..
I don't really know what it is with me and Wednesday... 
Maybe that I am the sibling in the middle?

Just wanted to share this in case there is someone else outside there with similar interests.

I am leaving here a couple of links to some of the channels I have enjoyed.
I love the honesty and the simplicity...

Davey Wavey Channel...
GDProphetXVII Channel...
Apples33ds Channel...

PS: Even if my new Vlog/Blog is taking a lot of my time I promise on keep posting here and in my Spanish blog as well...

There Is Always A Way In Which We Can Fly!!!

Going through Alexandru's Blog, I found this video...

Thanks for sharing your thought and experiences in such an honest and transparent manner.

We can always find our way to fly...
Our wings are not necessarily physical...
And most of the times we forget that 
we don't even need wings to fly.
We Need Guts!!!

Raining Inside - The Art Of Crying Without Doing It!

I just saw this video...

In a very weird and powerful way... 
I felt my feelings projected...

I felt how all my Self let itself be interpreted by the background, the music, the boy, my memories, my little town, the river behind my house, the rainy days in which I used to go to the river, to cry over the river another river... 
The river of my shame.
I am not ashamed anymore.
I though so...
Why is this video bringing all that back?

Those images are still there, just covered by the dust of the days, as I am used to say.

I am cleaning dust out.
I understand partially why this video made me cry without crying.

Tomorrow I am hosting a party.
Today I need to get the shit out of me.

One step at a time, as the rain is made of one drop at a time.



Te echo de menos, le digo al aire
I miss you, I say to the air

te busco, te pienso,
I'm looking for you, I think of you,

te siento y siento que como tu no habra nadie
I feel you and feel that there will be nobody like you

y aqui te espero,
and here I wait for you,

con mi cajita de la vida
with my little box of life

cansada, a oscuras, con miedo
tired, in the dark, scared

y este frio, nadie me lo quita
and this cold, nobody can take it away

Tengo razones, para buscarte
I have reasons, to look for you

tengo necesidad de verte, de oirte, de hablarte
I need to see you, to hear you, to talk to you

tengo razones, para esperarte
I have reasons, to wait for you

porque no creo que haya en el mundo nadie mas a quien ame
because I do not think there is anyone else in the world that I love

Tengo razones, razones de sobra
I have reasons, reasons in excess

para pedirle al viento que vuelvas
to ask the wind for you to come back

aunque sea como una sombra
albeit as a shadow

tengo razones, para no quererte olvidar
I have reasons, to want not to forget you

porque el trocito de felicidad fuiste tu quien me lo dio a probar
because the little piece of happiness was you who gave it to me to prove

El aire huele a ti, mi casa se cae porque no estas aqui
The air smells like you, my house is falling because you are not here

mis sabanas, mi pelo, mi ropa te buscan a ti
my sheets, my hair, my clothes are looking for you

mis pies son como de carton
my feet are like cardboard

que voy arrastrando por cada rincon
that I am dragging around each corner

mi cama se hace fria y gigante
my bed becomes cold and giant

y en ella me pierdo yo
and in it I lose myself

mi casa se vuelve a caer
my house is falling again

mis flores se mueren de pena
my flowers are dying of sorrow

mis lagrimas son charquitos
my tears are little pools

que caen a mis pies
falling to my feet

Te mando besos de agua
I send you kisses of water

q hagan un hueco en tu calma
to make a dent in your calm

Te mando besos de agua
I send you kisses of water

pa que bañen tu cuerpo y tu alma
to bath your body and your soul

te mando besos de agua
I send you kisses of water

para que curen tus heridas
to heal your wounds

te mando besos de agua
I send you kisses of water

de esos con los que tanto te reias
of those with whom you laughed so much

The Search For A Boyfriend

Well, in two days I am releasing my new blog...

I have thought about it for quite a while...
I am kind of wondering now if it is a good idea or not...
I have passed from happy about it, to scared, to excited, to afraid... 
and on and on... 
and so many times, that now I give a damn... 
I just gotta do it.

All this situation has, again, awaken rage on me...
I don't know why, or towards what...
I just know that I have a huge storm inside me...
A twister is taking place, and I don't know how my inner Self will look like when the storm is over.

I just want to call out and receive a hand back.
I want the hand of a lover to be the one I see...
And the lover is not here...

I am tired of reaching out with no answers...
I am bored of being publicly available and wait for something to happen...
For someone to approach...
I hate waiting lines...
I will reach out louder... regardless of what that can mean later on.

In two days I will launch a blog that clearly states that 
"I am looking for a boyfriend in Lisbon!"
Or should I say that I am looking forward to be found by a boyfriend?
It does not matter, really...

I will go out there with my blog, will post who I am, what I am looking for, and will make sure that every gay guy in Lisbon gets to read my blog...
I will also be looking for advise from friends in what to do next...
It will be a journey...
I hope my friends make me company, I will need you!
I also hope the journey ends up in a happy ending.

2 days, just 2 more...
I'm shaking...
But I am moving ahead...
[I have made this post so that there is no way back]

Looking forward; very, very much...


PS: The video relates to the rage that I am feeling.... and the things that I feel like screaming out to the world right now... 
PS2: I love my extremes and my passionate way to face my emotional states!


Afraid Of Me

[Chorus x2]
I'm so
Hidden and you're never gonna see
I'm cold
Forgiven all because of my beliefs
I'm no
Body that you ever wanna be
Cause I know that the world is afraid of me

[Monoxide Child]
Now you can try to sedate me, assassinate or just hate me
But there's nothing that you can do to me lately
I'm greatly accepted in the mind so I'm confused and intertwined
From being rejected so many times, I wanna leave it all behind
So kind of you to pick up the album and give it a try for once
And run and tell your homies that these motherfuckers will die for us

So many questions, fingers pointing for answers
Suggesting that I'm the cancer that lingers inside the pasture
With green grass up to my neck, and situations that's too fast
To think about and most people can't dream about
A hundred million miles and every single second
And every time you hear this record I want you to feel me on every sentence
Reminisce from descendants of past treasures
We'll embark on a journey that'll stay alive forever
Plus I would stand over on my side of the fence
Regardless of the circumstances or the consequences

[Chorus x2]
I'm so
Hidden and you're never gonna see
I'm cold
Forgiven all because of my beliefs
I'm no
Body that you ever wanna be
Cause I know that the world is afr
aid of me

[Jamie Madrox]
I am my own worst enemy
I'm not the smartest motherfucker and shit, I don't pretend to be
And why I am the way I am is not a mystery
My mind's not in proper working order or in therapy
The brain's confused and mentally abused
Life's been hanging on a string so what the fuck I got to loose?
And what the fuck I got to prove to you?
If you don't know me by now, you'll never know me
You can put that on my real homies
I got problems and they stack like bills
And I relate to the broken, bleeding heart love killed
And I awaited in the shadows, awake in the dark
Hoping to talk to the passed on, I'm falling apart
I'm such a mess and decisive, I'm fading away
I'm out of touch with society and living today
Never relying on my sanity, I threw it away
To become the maniac that's
got your attention today

[Chorus x2]
I'm so
Hidden and you're never gonna see
I'm cold
Forgiven all because of my beliefs
I'm no
Body that you ever wanna be
Cause I know that the world is afraid of me

[Monoxide Child]
Can you keep a secret?
Well I'm afraid world because they want me to die, can you believe it?
But I'm still alive... and been floating since '95
With my chin held high but I'm so dead inside
Let the problems just roll and put them back into a pile
Because it's just a bunch of shit that I can't deal with right now
And I'm tired of always guessing and messing it up again
And the next day it's even deeper and I'm steady sinking in

[Jamie Madrox]
I took a look at myself and came to grips with what I found
It was a vision of a child, disturbed and broke down
No soul, no heart because I gave it away
No time for feeling sorry, I'll grieve another day
And all those tears are stored in storm clouds
That hover above me and cover the ugly
Continued to haunt me when I was feeling low
That's the same reason
I hold on and never let go

[Chorus x4]
I'm so
Hidden and you're never gonna see
I'm cold
Forgiven all because of my beliefs
I'm no
Body that you ever wanna be
Cause I know that the world is afraid of me
