Getting back on track!

*Drools*




It's been forever since I last made jewelry and I'm really trying to get back on track and make pretty things while ruining my nails xD So I was going around some online stores to stare at pretty pretty beads and daydream about them.
Beads are one of my guilty pleasures, along with yarn and books and netbooks... and ebook readers and Robbie Williams... Ok! I have many guilty pleasures! But only the bead related one actully pays off :-p Though George wasn't doing so bad last time I checked.
But going back to the beads and the jewelry making thing... I don't really NEED new beads, but staring at them is so good! And even daydreaming about buying them...
Because, to be honest I do all the math about stuff like this... How much do they cost, how much would it cost me to get them sent and then fantasize of being sitting in my bed, with a gazillion of beads to choose from, just working and working endlessly in pretty pretty really pretty jewelry...
*Sigh* I know it's too much but it's hard not to do it when you find a good store with almost endless kinds of beads like it happened today at Beads Of Cambay I got lost there and just spent hours staring, calculating, planning, and even analizing what I would have to sell in order to get a new stash of beads...
I got sent here from a Social Spark opp (How's this for full disclosure? xD) but I got caught up by it! So this review is completely honest... I did spent hours staring, wanting... No wait... Needing new beads!
The site was new to me, and I can't believe it, it's so amazing! I guess I should start expanding my supplies horizons, because I'm totally missing out! They sell Wholesale Beads & Gemstones and it's wholesale pricing that makes it even more exciting to me. I mean, the cheaper the better huh? ;)
And shipping seems great! That's hard to find since I'm buying from Honduras, but they do offer international shipping and free shipping in the States, I think i should start looking for someone who's coming to Honduras anytime soon! :D

Moving...

This little post is just to let you know that we are moving my blog to Wordpress at last! So, it might be weird around here (like the photos that my phone keeps sending ! Though that´s my fault :-p )
So, please be patient and thank you for bearing with me ;)

When things get out of hand...

What happened yesterday in the National University of Honduras (where I study) is the proof of what happens when things go too far...

The so-called student fronts decided to make a protest supporting Manuel Zelaya, in front of the main entrance, closing the boulevard, while burning tires. Soon after the police arrived and at some point they started attacking each other. Rocks were flying by from the protesters side and tear gas bombs were thrown by the police... It was chaos.

Somehow the police managed to cornered them inside the pedestrian entrance of the university and forming a barricade they walked, forcing the students to back up... Meanwhile, rocks and bombs kept flying by... The students finally retreated to the parking lot near the entrance, still attacking the police. And a few minutes later, one of the protesters threw a Molotov bomb to a car that was parked there.

Somehow, I really don´t know how, things ended... at least with the police...

But the group of protesters decided to point their agressions against other targets, so they went to the Burger King, Little Caesars, Dunkin Donuts local on Hollywood (It´s a famous area of the university, with cafeterias and coffee shops, where many students spend their time...) and also the Espresso Americano coffee shop... What they did there is incredible! And trust me, words really can´t describe it...

When I got there today, I felt terrified of the hatred with which they destroyed those places... Nothing was left standing, nothing was left unbroken... What drives people to act like animals? A leader that is happily traveling while they risk their lives and the lives of others to defend him? An ideology that they don´t really know, but that leads them to believe that wearing a tshirt with the Che Guevara´s face makes them revolutionaries?

See for yourself the destruction they left behind...

The Cabonauts at last!!!

The Cabonauts: trailer
VĂ­deo enviado por cabonauts

After months of terrible anticipation Hayden Black has finally unveiled the trailer for his new series!!!
I talked about another of Hayden's series ages ago, Abigail's x-rated Teen Diary... He's super talented and is getting a big break with this new show that was presented last night at the Comic-Con... Co-starring with Nichelle Nichols, Uhura from Star Trek (not that I knew that... but many ppl actually knows who she is...), and great guest appearances like Miracle Laurie and James Leary for the first episode! It will be a hit!

So I'm just trying to do my bit and help him get the word out! Watch it! You'll be intrigued...

"The first trailer for our upcoming webseries The Cabonauts! It's a sci-fi musical comedy starring Star Trek's original Uhura, Nichelle Nichols and the creator or Goodnight Burbank and Abigail's Teen Diary, Hayden Black".

3 weeks later... Is it ever gonna end?

I have to say that after a few days I was tired of everything... The horrible coverage by the worldwide media, the lies told by Mel and the, even worse, lies told by Chavez!
My head hurts everyday and sometimes it actually lasts all day...

I tried to disconnect from everything but it´s impossible, with marches and rallies and the walls of the city covered with graffiti...

I wish it would end... I wish Mel stopped saying that he´s coming back everyday, asking the people to wait for him, to be prepared... And even asking them to break laws to support him... People has died for his recklessness, even when he tries to blame it on our new government...

Today I heard my third "bomb" in the last three weeks... First KFC, then Burger King and now the Lawyer Association in Tegucigalpa... all a couple of kms away from my house...
The world is slowly seeing the truth, but it´s not doing any good... What good are the Costa Rica conversations doing? Or the American Congressmen´s support?

Mel is still the victim before the eyes of the world and we are not allowed to go back to normal, because Pro Zelaya people is making sure to ruin our attemps, with the teachers on strike and so-called-student-associations closing the university one day, as if our two month strike wasn´t enough....

Honduras: Democracy at stake

I'm guessing that, by now, many of you have heard/read about the situation in Honduras, not the best way to be known but I guess the only one to be finally under the radar.

Whenever I mention, online, where I come from, people asks where Honduras is located, and they get even more confused when I mention Central America. My country is tiny, poor and has been battling against a leader that wanted to remain in the power by all means.

I could attemp to list all that has happened in the last week but I don't think I could be as accurate and clear as Mary Anastacia O'Grady from the Wall Street Journal. Her article, Honduras defends its democracy, is by far the best and more honest recolection of the events that have been going on here.

Before clicking on the link just let me tell you that it wasn't a coup d'etat. It was the people defending the democracy and fighting against a man that had systematically destroyed our country.

And just to make things clear, I voted for him. I'm one of the many he fooled and I'm actually heartbroken at the way this ended. When he was elected I had great hopes for my country, I figured it would be a fresh start, but I was so wrong. Little by little he started to show his true intentions and I was left feeling guilty by having supported him in the first place.

What concerns me the most is that the international community seems blinded by Zelaya's declarations and the voices of the people seem muffled under the great load of articles supporting him. I find hard to believe that the world can't see the obvious support of Chavez to our, now former president. The threats that Chavez has issued should be enough proof of the ilegality of Zelaya's intentions.

My only hope is that the international community will finally see the truth behind the lies they are being told, and that they will begin to listen the screams of a country that wants to be free and democratic and not fall in the hands of tyrans.
