Busy Year

Its been a busy year for me. As you can see I have been ‘away’ from this Blog since December 2010. Since then I had my first child – Gabriel Marcello, and I open his very own Blog here in WordPress . He is the joy of my life. I am still telling myself “I just had a child; I am a father!” He is 3 months now.

I have also decided to continue my classes towards a Computer Science degree. I will try to catalog my class experience during my journey in this Blog –> Computer Science diaries. My goal is to one day be able to invent something that would help make the planet a better place to live. Cliche? yes, but true. I don’t want to get rich, but if I happen to get money for my invention, then I will do the same thing Bill Gates and others like him are doing – give out to the world to help others. I admire that and therefore I am making it my mission too.

New Home Owner

I think I have finally finish my search for a house. I fell in love with this beautiful home when I saw it on Tuesday. The same day I decided to make the bank an offer. This morning at approximately 10:02 am my Realtor called me and gave me the news that they have accepted. My face lit up upon hearing this. I made several calls in the following order Wife–>Mother–>Friend. It is a great feeling to be done with the house hunting process. I am very excited about this :)

Your song Chiqui

I know that you are into this Betty la Fea ‘novela’ and I know how much you enjoy the title song. I finally found the lyrics for it. I also found the video of the original version by Tita Merello. I hope you enjoy.

thumbnail.aspxSe dice de mi…
Se dice que soy fea,
que camino a lo malevo,
que soy chueca y que me muevo
con un aire compadrón.
Que parezco un dinosaurio,
mi nariz es puntiaguda,
la figura no me ayuda,
y mi boca es un buzón.

Si charlo con Luis, con Pedro o con Juan,
hablando de mi los hombres están,
critican si ya la línea perdí,
se fijan si voy, si vengo o si fui.

Se dicen muchas cosas,
mas si el bulto no interesa
Por qué pierden la cabeza ocupándose de mi?

Yo sé que muchos que desprecian con mentiras,
y suspiran y se mueren cuando piensan en mi amor
Y más de alguno se derrite si suspiro,
y se queda si lo miro, resoplándo con temor.
Si fea soy, pongámosle,
que de eso ya, yo me enteré.
Mas la fealdad que Dios me dió,
mucha mujer me la envidió,
y no dirán que me creí,
porque modesta siempre fui
yo soy asi

Y ocultan de mi
ocultan que yo tengo unos ojos soñadores
y ademas otros timones que producen sensacion
si soy fea se que en cambio tengo un cutis de muñeca
los que dicen que soy chueca no me han visto en camison
los hombres de mi critican la voz,
el modo de andar la punta la tos
critican si ya la linea perdi se fijan si voy si vengo o si fui

Se dicen muchas cosas,
mas si el bulto no interesa
Por qué pierden la cabeza ocupándose de mi?

Yo sé que muchos que desprecian con mentiras,
y suspiran y se mueren cuando piensan en mi amor
Y más de alguno se derrite si suspiro,
y se queda si lo miro, resoplándo con temor.
Si fea soy, pongámosle,
que de eso ya, yo me enteré.
Mas la fealdad que Dios me dió,
mucha mujer me la envidió,
y no dirán que me creí,
porque modesta siempre fui
yo soy asi.

House hunting

I have been looking for a house for apprx two months now. Did not know how hard this would be. I have lost a few good offers for underbidding. Now I know better. I am still searching for the bargains. They are still out there. Best advise I got so far from a Realtor (that speaking at the First time owners class) is: “dont fall in love with any one home” because there are so many out there that you can fall in love with the next one just as easily. But, the other message I am drawing from this is that it could also be difficult to get that great low-priced house due to the multiple offers, that you can be badly disappointed.
