Puzzle Pieces

The Cetra look identical to regular humans, but are deeply spiritual in nature. According to Sephiroth, regular humans were Cetra who forsook their migratory nature to form permanent settlements millennia ago.

Damn Period.

My week-end plan will be to stick to my bed and drink coffee with cinnamon and eat pills.

On the bright side though:

Finally getting around watching ERGO PROXY: it's been on my to watch list for years now.
It also reminds me that I DO NEED TO quicken my writing pace.

Millenium Mambo

On rewatch.

This reminds me.

Trying to update my playlist

I've tried to add some novelty from my friend over here and went through my Youtube favorites to pick up old stuff from three years ago and more.

By far, this is what I got:

I said by far because once I remembered A Pure Person, I didn't stop fidgeting about rewatching Millenium Mambo.

And that's when I stopped.

Kaiji lately

Heika told me about the second season of Mushishi and I'm really in the mood of a marathon.
But if I find time -which is solely in the early morning- to get on my laptop, and if I can manage to watch something, it'd be Kaiji.

I have to admit

I came around actually "appreciating" pasta. I used to be disgusted by the thing.
Another week-end away.
Yet full of its own motion and laughters and surprises.
I really really want to remember those moments:
It's not everyday that you get to swim in the sea with all your clothes under careful watchful friendly eyes.
Not everyday either that you get to hang out at the early hours of the morning eating breakfast with the loveliest of couples at the beach.
It's not everyday that you run into your adorable awesome fantastic technical tutor with his lady outside work.
It's not everyday that you share personal stories of different matters on the same level of trust with the other person.

My cutie-patootie of a roomie and her boyfriend are simply my own personal plushies.

Rigor Mortis

Being keen on Takashi Miike's work doesn't mean I'll know Rigor Mortis was already out when it's labeled for 2014 on Youtube.

And yet, I got excited to watch it and actually watched it on the same day: AWESOME!

The Reader

On rewatch.

This speaks to me on so many levels I can't possibly convey in words.

The girls are home: Croix the little boy, the twin sisters Cocona and Crona, then the magnificently high mother of all, Cocoon.

It's a mashup of Soul Eater, Final Fantasy XIII and Ar Tonelico. It's also the vervein family finally in the apartment.

They'll need the baraka of some Shai-huluds. And possibly some sand beach to hold on the moisture within the soil. Or gravels at best. We'll see in the holy worms matter first. I wonder if Casanegra has a fisherman's market.

Kaiji on morning cartoon time.
I know now why my tutor loves this anime and ACTUALLY saw it.

Sahar reading The Stranger.
The sun.
The bugs. The soil. The worms.
The quietness. Then the talking, or the laughing, or the music playing.
The food. The comfort of a sweet company.
That was such a sweet cleanse of a Sunday in Bouskoura.

We said good-bye

One of my homies leaving Morocco for her hubby's land, Cairo in Egypt.

You're departing with so many blessings and I'm sending with you a bouquet of my best intentions.

That you find warmth, mutual affection, a nourishing environment, genuine goodness in the food and the people.

First of May

The First of May that came with the sole perfume I've ever cherished, the one I've ever felt anything towards. In her incredible witty way, Smile managed to find the last bottle of Fleur de Thé by Yves Rocher et brought it to me as a gift. I just couldn't believe she was able to do this.

To think that after more than seven years, I still keep the old bottle that Path' gave to me as a gift -once again- just to hold the lingering magnificent scent quite enough to see if someone can reproduce it someday!

In some hours, we'll be off to the hammam, my first hammam session ever. And while we talk, Smile and me, I will be drugging myself with this beautiful scent.

I'm NEVER EVER letting you spill or wither.
