43 things

Surfing the web, I came across a website called 43 Things. The objective of the site is that you list 43 things you want to do in your life. (really cool huh?)

Below the phrase: What do you want to do with your life? you fill in a field and the system starts creating a list of the things you want to do.

It has really good features:

1. It makes you think the things you want to do in your life.
2. It creates a list of them, up to 43 items.
3. The system matches users with the same goals.
4. You can include things you've already done, so you can keep track about your aims.
5. You can post a comment, about what you have done, and even if you want to help somebody else to achive a similar goal.

I wrote in my list (among others): Go to Iceland, New Zealand and Prague. Travel around France by bike, work in a big design firm, become master in CSS and standards, improve my photographic skills, read all the books I can in my life, see U2 live, understand Quantum Physics...

In the things I've already done, I wrote travelling around Italy by motorbike and teaching somebody to read and write.

My user name there is AleMontemayor (In case somebody wants to see my list)
I would like to see my friends things to do. Maybe I can help to achieve some of their goals! :) :)

It's really nice to focus in what you want, instead in what you do not want.

A really exciting website, definetely worth visiting!

14% of users pick up a call on their mobile during sex

Today I read in the newspaper that according to a global survey made for BBDO Europe, 14% of mobile users pick up a phone call while having a sexual intercourse.

Those users believe that phone call may be "exciting" (more exciting than sex? only if Angelina Jolie was calling...). Besides, having so many calls, specially in climax moments are a proof of "social success".

The majority of this percentage are germans and spanish. (Thank God I've never been with one of those)
On the other hand, only 7% of italians would interrupt an intimate rapport to answer their mobile. (Italia! Italia! Italia!)

Well... I'm telling you. If a guy picks up the phone while having rabbit time with me, I will make sure the one on the other side of the phone, may be responsible to please him next time.

Of course, if it is Angelina Jolie, I will call him so he picks up the phone. hihihih.

Good things about Mexico

I just came back from the supermarket with my father.

Poor him. Since I arrived, the bills have raised 300%. I told him having daughters was more expensive. He should've had sons. But he got stubborn, and kept sending the chromosome x. It's his fault.

I bought 3 pairs of socks, 1 pair of sandals, 3 pieces of sweet bread, 1 bag of marshmallows, 2 paletas payasos and lots lots! of fruit.

I was surprised about the variety of fruit we have in Mexico. I saw watermelon, pineapple, melon (2 types), bananas (2), apples (5 types), pears (3), oranges, grapefruit, guavas, strawberries, peaches, plumbs, tangerines, tamarindos, jicamas, guanabanas, kiwis, mangos (2), papaya, cocos, figs...

Happiness is to grab things without looking at the price. Double happiness is to see fridge full. But total bliss is that you didn't carry them 4 floors on your back.
