Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

En Cuatro En Cuatro...

Lo que yo quiero es ponerte a ti...
En Cuatro, En cuatro, En cuatro
En cuatro balcones, que tengan flores de todos colores
Que te levantes por la mañana y que no tengas que hacer nada
Porque todo, todo lo vas a tener, dinero rubíes, diamantes también
Las prendas más finas, las perlas más caras, comida divina y ropa de
marca, serás la princesa que reina en mi vida, y no querrás separarte de mi ni un día, yo te lo aseguro, yo voy a darte un lindo futuro, para que me creas te voy a dejar esta canción que te va a enamorar, lo que yo te digo no es nada en vano, así que vente y no sueltes mi mano.
Lo que yo quiero es ponerte a ti...
En Cuatro, En cuatro, En cuatro En cuatro caminos que te lleven a un mismo destino
Que seas mi amante que seas mi esposa, te aseguro serás una rosa en mi
vida y no voy dejar que ni siquiera te puedan mirar,
yo siempre seré el guardián de tu lecho, te amaré como nunca lo he
hecho, pero, ojo ten mucho cuidado, y no quiero verte con otro al lado,
si te descubro en alguna movida, yo no lo pienso te quito la vida y te
mato y no me arrepiento, te diré, “mira como lo siento”,
buscarme mujer no sera complicado,
y mucho menos si tengo a mi lado a mis panas que son infalibles,
tu no los ves porque son invisibles
Mosca conmigo, ten mucho cuidado y así no te iras jamás de mi lado

Spent a perfect Sunday afternoon among the trees and music at the Stern Grove Festival. Thanks to my lovely friends at the Grove enjoyed the show with ten of my closest city friends at a coveted table. Gracias for the love with the preferred parking, table service with endless wine and beverages, and the nicest server (that has seen me at my best sangria inspired moments at our local haunt).

She upgraded me finally someone did, the princess title was getting old! Goddess, she said in her perfect accent and made sure the table was never dry. The friends arrived bearing a great selection of cheeses, bread, fruit and vegetables. We caught up, planning out the rest of summer.

A Spa Camping trip in the Santa Cruz Mountains- girls only. A carne asada when my papi's are in town, the boys should come because most of the girls are vegetarians. Burning man updates, dissertation updates, research, relationship, engagement updates, we accomplished all of this without an empty glass.

When the music started we could not get enough of Los Amigos Invisibles, the anthem of our afternoon became en cuatro, and I laughed because at the end of the show the ones who understood finally shared the doble sentido with those who did not.

After Los Amigos Invisibles, Os Mutantes brought back the sixties psychadellic sounds of Brazil.

I smiled extra when they announced Brazil beat Argentina in the Copa de Oro: Afterall it was Argentina that knocked Mexico out of the running...I heart the hip young talent that brings us the SGF.
