it is just so that every girl loves chocolate.. i do .. still it is kind on a forbidden list for me but i used to break the rules every now and then... even taking into account that it may hurt me i still do eat chocolate sometimes ;))

"There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate"

“Forget love, I'd rather fall in chocolate.”

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.”


just a thought...

“When I saw you, I was afraid to meet you... When I met you, I was afraid to kiss you... When I kissed you, I was afraid to love you... Now that I love you, I'm afraid to lose you.”

The Departed

That was a great movie. Havent watched such one for months, may be even for years. Scorsese is the best, the movie is just a masterpiece. Though it is really long, i havent noticed the time, it just flied away..
Ok, now a bit about the impressions..

So you get one of the best directors in the world, a cast of outstanding talent, a brilliant script and you end up with the departed the best film of the year so far. There is so much that is good about this film, it is exceptionally well told, keeping you hooked from the word go, the music is great the cinematography outstanding. You move from scene to scene in a state of anticipation and excitement, not quite knowing what is going to happen next. The acting, well the Oscars need to extend the number of nominees in the categories of best actor and supporting actor because all involved in this picture deserve to be up for a gong.

Leonardo DiCaprio - i dont like him, really, not a fan, but sure he IS a great actor. He really held his own against an acting powerhouse like Jack Nicholson (who was, of course, great as usual - here the real talent goes). If ever there was a character you sympathised with from the very beginning, it was this guy. And DiCaprio's performance really helped build that feeling.

Matt Damon .. i just love him... love him from "Dogma" when he did a great job of a fallen angel together with Ben Affleck - that was fun ;) Solid performances every time. No exceptions for this one :) It was nice to see him play a character like this. He was believable, it worked.

Martin Sheen was, well... Martin Sheen. No comments ;)

Alec Baldwin was hilarious. I guess nobody will doubt it ;)

So the movie was just great with outstanding performances, great story and it is sure the best film of the year :))

And i will repeat it again... Martin Scorsese is the best, if not for him i am not sure the movie would be as great as it really is :)

Sorry for such a stupid review, just i guess i left all my talent writing the previous entry :p
Besides i am still having too many impressions of this film, just cant describe everything the way i would like to :)



here is me again...weekend is here.. actually it is better to say weekend was there :P because my weekend is almost gone already....sooooooooooooo happy that i am finally home... not that the weekend was bad.........not at all :P it was a great one, really enjoyed this one soooooooooo much :)))
First, i didnt make any plans for it... because everytime i do make plans..everything goes wrong :P And so, this time i decided - why plan, will do everything spontaneously... i have this great ability of doing all the wonderful things spontaneously and then en voilà une surprise! and everything goes successfully.. it is wonder how most of successful things in my life have been done not on plan but really spontaneously..it was only my spontaneity (is there such a word in english :O - abhay, where are you? please help me out... did i invent a new word? or did someone invent it before me? :P) ... so what was i talking about... again lost the point ... oh, yeahh... here it is - "spontaneity", that was a key word :P Only because of it i ended up studying at my University, only because of it i came to germany - it took me about 15 mins to make such a decision and about 1 day to prepare all the necessary papers, in a month... voila - i've got this invitation letter, even didnt have time to think about it... and only because of this spontaneity thing i never stopped to amaze my university friends because i was the only one who almost never prepared any essays or compositions or retellings, papers etc I just somehow managed all these things ... you know... just spontaneous :P
anyways i started talking about my weekend... i didnt have any plans and didnt want to do anything as well, but...........there is always a but, isnt it :P............so but i woke up with a feeling that i need a party... and that i need it right now........... of course there are no parties in the morning. What a pity, really! Someone should have organized a party in the morning, it would be fun... everyone so sleepy, hungry and looking quite terrible ..., no offence, people :P - it is at least how i am in the early morning :P - no, really there are really few people on this planet who look great when they wake up, i am not the one of them.... not that i complain... no i do not complain, because other who knows how many billions of people are just like me - look terrible, are sleepy and hungry :P
dont you think that this entry is becoming too long... well since i do have adsl connection i dont really care how much time i can have when using internet and am using this my ability of talking to people online while writing this entry, so no wonder i lose a point every now and then.. i do it even when i better concentrate, but now i am not concentrated on this entry at all.. :P so whoever will read it pleassssssssse, dont complain, i know i could do a better job, and i will ... next time... promise ;))
so when i woke up on saturday i wanted a party, but since there were no crazy people like me who wanted party at that time of the day.. am i a crazy one? probably... but who cares, i hope nobody minds ;)) ok, where am i right now.... WHAT? Still SATURDAY MORNING? i am really slow today, sorry :P well... not really sorry... actually i have lots of fun writing this entry ;)) - it is a good one.
Well ..back to the weekend... do you still remember i am talking about MY WEEKEND? What?! NO?! OMG... my fault i guess :P ok, dears here we go ... weekend, my weekend started with shopping, i just literally made one of my friends go with me... you know i can be a very dangerous girl sometimes ... :D "really?" will you ask.........."of course, not" will i reply, who are you taking me for... i am the nicest one on this planet :P just i have this power of being able to persuade people to do what is the best for them (and for me) right now.. and the best for my friend was really going out - so we went shopping, then were stuck in McDonalds for couple of hours... i know, i know... junk food etc.. but really who cares... :P
All that time i still remembered that i want a party, that i need a party... and O, Lord - I was saved...;) i remembered that i WAS invited to a party this day (better to say this night), i really didnt intend to go there before but now i wanted it, so it was only logical, that i called my friends and told them that i will come to their party. The party was in a night club and it was for the whole night. So after McDonalds i went hope to relax a bit and to talk to some people online whom i promised to talk to on the weekend :)) I was really surprised that in addition to them i was able to talk to you, Abhay, too - it was really a nice surprise (btw.. hope your weekend was at least as good as my was, love ;)) After that i went to a party - that was great, really a cool party with everything in it - good drinks, good food, good people, good music... As for dancing... regarding the possible questions... NO, i did NOT do dirty dancing, but it actually came to dancing on the tables, was really fun.. I came home at 7 am, then slept for 4 hours and woke up at 11, checked mails, nothing really interesting, well.. then i decided to do something spontaneous again... you see i was in my spontaneous mood :P and i just went to a movie, practically dragged in my friends with me. They werent very happy about it, but couldnt resist me, because if they had i would just have killed them ;) - you see, the cruel and dangerous Lena comes here again :P But after all they thanked me because the movie was just GREAT - havent watched such one in a while (review in the next entry :))
Now i am home chatting with people and it seems nice to be home after all this going out... finally something not that spontaneous (still have no idea if there is such a word in english :P)

ok, enough about it, bye for now, but not for long, am going to review the movie right now :)))

sharing a memory

When i was about 13-14 years old - it was the most popular band in Russia - Ace of Base.
Everyone knew their songs, no matter if they spoke english or didnt... i didnt... neither of my friends did.. we just listened to it and believed there were good songs...they werent bad, really..:)) just looking back now i understand we just didnt have much of western culture at that time - madonna, michael jackson, britney spears - they all came a bit later.. at that time we teenagers adored Ace of Base..

i have lots of memories about their songs but the most wonderful i have about this song "Happy Nation" - the only words we understood there were the words from the title - we never knew the meaning of the song, just liked it a lot. I cant remember anything in particular, just know that this song was always with me during my teenage years... and when yesterday 10 years later i heard this song on the radio - i smiled because it brought me back to the years when i was a careless teenage girl, when i knew that my future was going to be the best, when i knew that everything will be just wonderful no matter what...

I still do believe that everything will be fine in the end, otherwise it all has just no sense... thats why no matter what i smile and go my way.. I am glad i heard that song on the radio because it brought back to me the memories i that i thought were long lost and forgotten :))

Here the song goes:

Laudate omnes gentes laudate
Magnificat en secula
Et anima mea laudate
Magnificat en secuala

Happy nation living in a happy nation
Where people understand
And dream of the perfect man
A situation leading to sweet salvation
For the people for the good
For mankind brotherhood

We're traveling in time

Ideas by man and only that will last
And over time we've turned to the past
That no man's fit to rule the world alone
A man will die but not his ideas

Happy nation…

We're traveling in time
Traveling in time

Tell them we've gone too far
Tell them we've gone too far
Happy nation come through
And I will dance with you
Happy nation

Happy nation…


me today

i guess i caught cold... the weather here is quite winterly - is there such a word in english??? (i guess even if i sometimes do invent new english words, my english did improve for this year :))
ok, back to me... yesterday after lesson i got at home at about 9:15 pm and felt just miserable - all i wanted was to get to bed but somehow i was roaming senselessly around the flat without doing anything positive... i even cant remember what i did.. i read some emails.. but was too exhausted to write any replies.. i checked out the new modem my mom bought yesterday, hope i will be able to change up to adsl connection in the beginning of the next week... i am absolutely sick of this dial-up at home, yesterday the connection failed 3 times for 15 mins, it is pretty annoying...
after i did nothing.. i went to bed at around midnignt and fell asleep almost immediately, had a good sleep, though cant remember any dreams.. at least i didnt have bad ones :))
in the morning i woke up with a feeling i am sick... and yes.. i am really sick... i'm lucky that i dont have fever..
had to cancel a lesson today.. my mom told me that if i dont do this she will kill me personally... i decided "why take any chances" - dont want to die now :P
life is good so far, i am happy in love and enjoy life..
wanted to visit friends on the weekend.. but since i am sick and thay have a little child i guess it is wont do any good to go there. seems i will be again stuck at home on the weekend... i hate it, as soon as the weekend arrives i fell ill, it is like my body doesnt want me to enjoy the weekend much... at least i have books to read and movies to watch..finally gor "Shakespeare in love" on dvd .. you may be able to find in Russia on dvd the newest movies, the ones that werent even shown in the cinemas yet, but it is almost impossible to get the old ones.. i got the dvd with 10 movies with Gwyneth Paltrow - "Shakespeare in love" is sure the best but there is also"Sliding doors" which i like so much and some others too.. so i guess i will make the weekend of Gwyneth Paltrow :)))
Am sitting in the office and doing nothing.. just too lazy :P and besides my boss isnt there.. i guess things with me getting the new position are almost settled though i still have doubts, wont believe this until everything is official :))
Today there is a day of my favourite song.. "Girl" by F.R. David - it is being played endless on my computer today, just cant get enough of it :))
i guess thats enough for now, want to write something else but it will be another entry :)))

Letters to God

-found in the Net, written by children :)

Dear God,
Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don't you just keep the ones you have now?

Dear God,
Who draws the lines around the countries?

Dear God,
Went to this wedding and they kissed right in church. Is that okay?

Dear God,
Thank you for my baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy.

Dear God,
It rained for our whole vacation and is my father mad! He said some things about you that people are not supposed to say, but I hope you will not hurt him in anyway.
Your Friend (but I am not going to tell you who I am)

Dear God,
Please send me a pony.
I never asked for anything before. You can look it up.

Dear God,
If we come back as something, please don't let me be Jennifer Horton, because I hate her.

Dear God,
I want to be just like my daddy when I get big, but not with so much hair all over.

Dear God,
I think the stapler is one of your greatest inventions.

Dear God,
I think about you sometimes, even when I'm not praying.

Dear God,
I bet it is very hard for you to love all the people in the world. There are only four people in our family and I can never do it.

Dear God,
Of all the people who worked for you,
I like Noah and David the best.

Dear God,
My brothers told me about being born, but it doesn't sound right. They are just kidding, aren't they?
Dear God,
If you watch me in church Sunday, I'll show you my new shoes.

Dear God,
We read Thomas Edison made light. But in Sunday School, we learned that you did it. So I bet he stole your idea.

Dear God,
I do not think anybody could be a better God. Well I just want you to know that I am not just saying this because you are God already.

Dear God,I didn't think orange went with purple until I saw the sunset you made on Tuesday. That was cool!

Dear God,
Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had their own rooms. It works with my brother.


a joke of the day

A man in an office found a magic lamp.
He took it to his boss, who was meeting with his financial advisor.
The man showed it to his boss and handed it over.
"Bit grubby" his boss said, rubbing it vigorously. Out popped a genie!
"I will grant each one of you in this room 1 wish!" Boomed out the genie!
Immediatly piping up the finacial advisor said, " I wish I was on a far away beach lying in the sun and drinking cocktails."
"Done!" said the genie, and the financial advisor disappeared.
Next the man who had found the lamp shouted out, " I wish I was in the Alps snowboarding and surrounded by beautiful women."
"Done" said the genie, and he disappeared.
"So what do you want?" - The boss looked thoughful for a moment and then said, "I want those two back here by lunch-time!"

Moral of the story- Always let your boss have the first say!

i guess ... i really do have to stop :P because another entry of mine disappeared... i guess thats a sign :P so i better stop and will just listen to music, not write about it ;)))


Every little thing she does is magic

i just wonder if i am able to stop today.. :P

Artist - Police
Song - Every little thing she does is magic

Though I've tried before to tell her
Of the feelings I have for her in my heart
Every time that I come near her
I just lose my nerve
As I've done from the start

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up getting wet

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
And ask her if she'll marry me in some old fashioned way
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone?

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

[Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Every little thingEvery little thing
Every little thing
Every little thing
Every little
Every little
Every little
Every little thing she does
Every little thing she does
Every little thing she does
Every little thing she does
Thing she does is magic Eee oh oh...]
Every little thing
Every little thing
Every little thing she does is magic magic magic
Magic magic magic



just the way you are

before i continue.. i just want to make clear that i dont relate to any of songs, i just like them because they are really good ones :))

Artist - Billy Joel
Song - Just The Way You Are

Don't go changing, to try and please me
You never let me down before
Don't imagine you're too familiar
And I don't see you anymore
I wouldn't leave you in times of trouble
We never could have come this far
I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
I'll take you just the way you are

Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care

I don't want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are.

I need to know that you will always be
The same old someone that I knew
What will it take till you believe in me
The way that I believe in you.

I said I love you and that's forever
And this I promise from the heart
I could not love you any better
I love you just the way you are.




i already wrote this entry but somehow it all went lost :(
i wont repeat much of it though, dont feel like typing :P
Today i am in my music mood and since it doesnt happen often the next few entries will all be about music :)) - something like the songs of the day, i just cant choose only one for today... I even wanted to post the lyrics of Richard Marx's "Right Here Waiting" and Bryan Adams' "All I do I do it for you" or even Reamon's "Tonight" but then i realized i have posted them already in my other blog, dont want to copy myself :P

ok.. lets start... the first one for today...
Artist - Chicago
Song - Hard to Say I'm Sorry

Everybody needs a little time away, I heard her say, from each other.
Even lovers need a holiday far away from each other.
Hold me now. its hard for me to say Im sorry. I just want you to stay.

After all that weve been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.
And after all thats been said and done,
Youre just the part of me I cant let go.

Couldnt stand to be kept away just for the day from your body.
Wouldnt wanna be swept away, far away from the one that I love.
Hold me now. its hard for me to say Im sorry. I just want you to know.
Hold me now. I really want to tell you Im sorry. I could never let you go.

After all that weve been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.
And after all thats been said and done,
Youre just the part of me I cant let go.

After all that weve been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.

Youre gonna be the lucky one.




I had a very lazy day at work yesterday :) My boss is away for a week, so not really much work to do :))) - i guess i need some rest after having such crazy weeks recently.
After work i went to the cinema. It was different this time compared to the last visit when all we did with my friend during the movie was just making fun of each other.
We have a Festival of New Britain Movies here ... so me and one of my co-workers went to see a movie yesterday. It was a good one. It wasnt one i would have chosen on my own though. I mean it is not a movie you are eager to watch right after you have heard about it or read about it. Not a blockbaster... just a very sad, sometimes very funny movie... set back into 1969-1971... a very kind story of people who happened to live far away from their native country, who had to go through family dramas, divorces, losing their loved ones... a story about a boy who had to choose between the mother who left him and his stepmother... a story about a man who never stopped loving his wife who betrayed him with his best friend... even when he happened to remarry and who has got a wonderful wife after all...a story of a real life with real people, no supermen there, no magic other but magic of people's feelings...i havent written a review of a movie for a while, mainly because i havent watched any decent filmes for ages... so i guess i am a bit out of practice and this review is a bit chaotic.... but nevermind :))
what i loved most of all about this movie is that it is honest, something we often miss so much not only in the films but also in the real life.. and it is a very warm story, really touching, the one that can make you cry.. i really loved the movie as you can see from this chaos of my thoughts, usually i am a bit silly but always think very logical and clearly....
ok... *starting thinking clearly* - here is the official webpage of the movie http://www.wahwahthemovie.com/ :))

The quote of the day :)
