Spray tanning [Aug. 23rd, 2007|10:13 am]

igornavitja
Could some please help me. I am going to Barcelona tomorrow and I’d like to know whether there are any places where there is spray tanning and if so what the name of the street is, if possible.
Thanks.

Well it's the end of the semester and I am just now trying this thing out. I'm not sure if we even have to do this thing. Does anyone out there still read this thing? If so, Prague was cool (literally)...Berlin was even cooler...and Paris was what I expected, big and full of French people. I'm ready to be home, though. I have had enough Europe for the time being....but I'll be back someday. I'm gonna go eat or something.


Holla,

1.5 years is too long to stay away. Melissa and I have decided to revisit this crazy place and invite all to join us. We are currently searching for jobs and settling in at our barcelonetta flat.
just so you know:
the doner is still the best.
tequilla is gone.
fairy bar still has some fairy dust left.

Ireland [May. 14th, 2005|11:51 am]

Ireland was fabulous. I got to be 100% self centered, sleep and get up when I felt like it, follow whims, make no plans. I had a super fabulous time.

I had a very weird moment, though, sitting alone in a restaurant. The waitress spoke to me and I was almost SURE, from her accent, that not only was she spanish-speaking, but Catalan. Sure enough, the girls at table next to me, though they were sitting with a bunch of Aussies, were from Barcelona, and talking to the waitress about home. So here I am, expecting to feel at home in an English-speaking country, and better able to understand the Castellano at the table to the left than the thick Irish to the right... and that made me feel at home.

The conclusion is, I'm completely homeless. Or I have 4 homes, none of which seem to take any precedent over the others.

Now I'm bored in Barcelona, alone... trying to avoid this guy who hit on me at the park yesterday and wants me to meet him for lunch... posting to a blog that no one is reading :)

Five more days.

so... yeah... thanks for the rice, everyone.

we finally had churros tonight, and they were quite nice, though not exactly worth the hype.

I have gotten crazy shitfaced drunk and gone dancing more this week than the whole rest of the semester, so that's fun. Betsy, Knox told me about my incorrect hearing of your request to "show me your moves", and I'm sorry for that. I don't think Knox is sorry, because he keeps bringing it up. Caroline, your friend Austin is lots of fun, we're showing him the true Chupitos spirit of Barcelona, and the flaming orange shot scared him so much he ran out the door!

Julie has bribed me with her leftover T-10 to escort the group to the Aeroport tomorrow morning, so maybe I won't feel quite as deserted. Thank god I'm going to Ireland on Thursday, or I'd be a lonely girl! But anyway it's only 15 days until I have the company I really crave. 14, now. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

Everyone's going home. I can't even picture myself there... except maybe ending up in Newark by mistake like Harold&Kumar. That happens enough that I can imagine that one.

Home Sweet Home [May. 3rd, 2005|02:44 pm]

I'm finally home! And it's everything I dreamed and more...Last week was hectic, stressful, and exhausting. After endless days of drawing floor plans and sections and one tearfilled frustrating evening of making our model, I walked away with blistered fingers and the satisfaction of knowing just how much effort I put into the project. The night of reviews was a blast, but I'm sorry I didn't get to say goodbye to everyone. I left friday morning, and just like last semester, I stayed up all night before so my flight was quick and painless. So now I'm back and here's what's going on in Charleston:
-answering my request for beef, as in cows that once said moo, for my welcome home dinner, my mom spent a small fortune on steaks from the New York Butcher. of course she left them in the refrigerator at her office though, so instead we had BiLo steaks from the freezer....I'm still awaiting my nice steak dinner.
-I somehow fried my cell phone by charging it the night before I left Spain, I used the adapter and all but somehow it got fried. so I got a new one yesterday and for some reason had to get a new number too. except the new number they gave me has Tom Cooper's voice on the voice mail and I get random calls from people I don't know. I'm not sure who Mr. Cooper is or why they gave me his phone/number but Suncom said I could have my old number back next week. I am so confused.
-my parents managed to lose both sets of my car keys while I was gone. the cause of more knockdown dragout fights than were necessary in my first 48 hours home. thank goodness Bradford had my spare, so I am no longer carless, but I'd still like to have my real keys w/ the little remote and all.
-I went to the grocery store and had a blast w/ Ned's credit card...I didn't realize just how much food we'd been missing out on!
Other than that I've just been hanging out w/ Bradford and Heyward, and started work yesterday. Home is great. I love it. And I'm not leaving here for a long long time!

Specifically, I will miss yelling lady, herpes dog, king doner, Carlos, The Bagdad, the Carnegie Mellons, and of course the 5.10 del dia. viva la Boqueria!

I had a dream last night that involved being on a boardwalk designed by Calatrava. Then I saw this chick from high school who won't talk to me anymore and I was so surprised I fell right off the boardwalk (there was no railing).

Calatrava does not belong on the beach.

Well, all classes are finished except studio at this point. This Thursday is final review, and once that's finished the cheap champagne will be out and corks will be flying all over. Until then, it's work, work, and more work. This past weekend was a good time, though it also marked the end of a few occurrences that have become more like traditions in the program. Oh well, everything's got to come to an end at some point. My parents are coming into town on Friday and then it's off for more traveling and touring. I'm looking forward to this b/c then I won't be on my own budget anymore. We're looking to head to Bilbao and check out the Guggenheim, and then we go to Florence for a few days before coming back to BCN for a night and then it's back to the good ol' U.S.! Enough updates, back to work. Until next time...

Today is probably going to be one of the last days that I can goof off and not do the shit that I need to, and that makes me sad. Studio has been interesting, i've been kinda dragging my feet, but it's hard not to when there's so much anti-academic stuff going on. Mom and Broseph are in town, and it's been fun showing off how much I know about this city. I'm really gonna miss this place. It's funny, just a month ago I was bored and ready to go home. Now, so much stuff is going on and I really wish i had more time to enjoy them. 9 days. wow. I don't even want to think about it. So, i'm going to take a nap until happy hour at P. Flah's!! probably the last one too. damn!!!! I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE!!!

-D
ps. you might have heard a loud thump followed by a "FUUCK!!" That was me rushing to the bathroom b/c my nose was running, and I tripped over a drawer that was sticking out and experienced a full-body crash onto the floor... this one's definitely gonna leave a mark.

4) Running along the port
5) Getting to go on the travel trip of a LIFE time...thanks ladies :)

Pidgeon death ruled suicide [Apr. 18th, 2005|06:11 pm]
Barcelona blog
consuelopitts
Police autopsy reports on Paul "Piggy" Pigeon, were released today stating that all evidence points to suicide by self-inflicted bludeoning. The shocking death of Mr. Pigeon came just three days after the release of a quite violent book entitled "How to Kick a Pigeon in One Easy Step" The books authors, Jonathan Pitts and Will Allured were previously suspects in a criminal investigation over the pigeon's death but as of today, all charges have been dropped. When reporters asked Mr. Allured about the incident, he said simply, "I hope the door came out all right."
Police reports also explained that Mr. Pigeon had wandered haplessly into the room of one Charles Warren Davis IV in search of some soothing sounds and when he found that nobody was home, he quickly began searching the room for alcohol. He soon sank into a depression on finding the cabinets empty and rammed into the door, breaking his own neck. One neighbor said, "When they found the body I could hear someone screaming 'There's blood everywhere, what do I do?"

Well its that time again where the workload increases to undesired levels. Studio project is coming along nicely. There was a slight interuption in the design process but I was able to recover and move along. This project has really made me look at spaces a lot differently. In the U.S., everything is very spread out so space is not really an issue. Here in BCN that is obviously not the case so a lot more planning and consideration for the site must be done. Anyway, last weeks case study was Parc Diagonal. I found this park to be the most enjoyable I have been to yet. It is a fairly new park so the plants have not grown to full potential but it was a very pleasant setting with the water features and mix of green space. I think I enjoyed it because of its positioning in relation to the surrounding buildings.

This past weekend some friends from Genoa came to BCN. It has been a great time of hanging out and catching up. The deal at Nubar is excellent. 1 Euro drinks is hard to beat. There have been some fun times the past couple nights at Nubar. We had a very interesting card game with some Canadian chicas(was it me or did they get better looking with the more drinks we had? The hen party was a crash--literally--the drunk chick fell off a stool and glasses were shattering everywhere. Enough stories for now-- On the discussion of good deals the doner has met its match. I no longer look at King Doner the same way. The sandwich is a pita from a Greek shop. The pita has all the normal fixings a doner would have only it has pollo(chicken), it is on a very soft pita, and the pita comes with feta cheese. The price for a pita with feta is 3.70, without 3.20 . The restaurant is called Dionisiss (sp?). It is located on George Orwell Plaza--same place as Veronica's Pizza. I wold recommend everyone experiencing one before they leave.

I guess I need to get back to work. Enough chatting for now. Its GO TIME!


See ya,

Jonathan

Well it's been awhile since the last update. Studio work has been picking up some, although its a little troubling that we only have 2 classes left and have yet to talk to the landscape guy.... could end up with one ugly looking park since I have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to plants and the like. Sounds like I missed out on some interesting stuff the last two nights, I was on tour guide duty with the parents being here. This semester really has gone by fast, kinda ready to get back home so I can make some money to pay for the shitload I've spent since I've been over here. Well I haven't done any work yet this weekend so I guess I should get on it.

Now we all know how Tudor's voice carries and how I can hear her from my bathroom, from my bed, well if her window is open, basically for everywhere. Usually I ignore the fuss, but when I heard "HOLY SHIT THERE IS BLOOD ALL OVER HERE!" I thought maybe Warren had cut his hand off or SOMETHING...
so I ran down to see what the heck is up. Indeed there is blood spattered all over her room... and a DEAD PIGEON on the floor!!! Right behind the door, rigid, legs in the air, in a spattered gore zone.

Stupid bird must have flown in her open window, cracked its neck and flailed around until it died. It was about the grossest thing I ever saw. Sheldon took it downstairs holding it with TP around its leg and the night guard Carlos (the man who smaoks in front of the no smoking sign, the man who doesn't speak a lick of english and has massive trouble with the american guys on this account, and who comes to enforce noise violations by having a glass of wine if you understand
spanish and can take a joke)... Carlos apparantly drew the line at a dead pigeon and is all "Tomelo
afuera AHORA!!!!" Meanwhile upstairs Tudor is standing on her desk screaming and everyone is coming over to see what the hell is up... taking pictures of the blood... laughing.

Whole incident gets a "wow" and a note to self: don't leave the windows open when you're gone.

I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry blog, I know it's been ages since I've written and I really have no excuses. So anyways I have a ton to say so I guess I'll make it short and painless:
--Speaking of pain...I don't recommend getting Spanish infections in your elbow, it's quite painful. Alison and Sarah kindly escorted me to the hospital up the street which was a frightening experience. The place resembles a bad horror movie from back in the day: puke green walls, old white metal beds, men w/ stained white uniforms, groans and screams from behind the curtains....Take my advice and don't get sick in Spain.
--Spring break was fabulous. Spending 10 whole days w/ Bradford was well-deserved and long-overdue considering this is my second semester over here! We had a blast in Paris, did everything there was to do. Had a blast in Rome, did everything there was to do and then took a break by spending a day in the countryside, Orvieto. Met up w/ the girls in Rome too which was fun. Then went to Chamonix to ski at Mont Blanc. The mountain was huge and scary, but once you get over that it's awesome. I highly recommend it! Coming back to Spain sucked, prolly the worst experience of my life. After spending 10 days w/ my favorite person in my favorite countries (France and Italy), coming back here is the equivalent to being locked in a torture chamber for a month. But it's ok I'm gonna make it!
--Hmm what else...Tudor, Alison, and I had Ghost Story Night...in the dark w/ candles for the full effect. Well we had a good time but scared ourselves shitless. Even I was scared, and I never get scared of ghosts, I've grown up w/ them, Charleston is like the most haunted city and I think everyone I know has lived in a house w/ a ghost. Others have wanted to join so we're planning another one, we'll let ya'll know when!
--The Genoa girls are here this weekend. We had a good time last night prepartying between Alison/Dana and Julie/Sandra's rooms. We all went to Ryans, I swear that place would have no business if it weren't for us. I think we took over, it was all Clemson kids. As always Warren and Kurt provided excellent entertainment w/ their fabulous guitar playing. Then we came back here, I found DonBosch sitting in the hall outside my door eating a doner, half of it was on the floor around him though. We went to Julie/Sandra's room and hung out and heard his story of his run-in w/ the cops for walking over cars to catch up w/ Le'er. Highly entertaining, apparently if you tell the cops you're American they immediately let you go b/c 'Bush will regulate.' Good to know we have that kind of diplomatic immunity over here haha.
--The Beach has been great lately. The other weekend I got fried on my back so Thursday I had to go even things up and fry my front haha. Gotta endure the first burns of summer to be tan the rest....Thursday was quite pleasant, except for the Irish man who would verbally attack the Indian men selling drinks. Eventually he started running up to them and pushing, but when he started throwing rocks that's when Julie and I packed up and left. His aim wasn't very good and we were nervous.
Ok so that's about it for now. I have precisely 13 days left here!!!!!! Yikes! Adios

well classes are winding down (while the workload winds up)... I've never done less in an architectural semester, methinks... spain+southerners have certainly chilled me out, and if you kids think I'm manic about having a daily agenda, you're seeing me as easy going as I've ever been (pathetic). Something about yoga, no car, a beautiful walk to the beach...

for a week or so I was killing myself about the decision to stay on until june... and now I'm patting myself on the back. Bravo me. One week of pining away after my far-away boyfriend is about as much self-pity as I will allow myself, so moving on, and living vicariously through Dana's retardedly beautiful conquests, I'm going to blow through my bank account and enjoy the shit out of the rest of my time in europe. I'm going to Ireland and winging it for 5 or 6 days, in the southwest, flying to Cork and probably from Shannon. I'm excited!!!! I've already spent a night's lodging (possibly a night and a half's) on a travel book but since' Let's Go has already saved my life on several occasions I think it might be worth it. And by saved my life I mean told me where the tourist office is and how much the bus costs. I've probably wanted to go to ireland longer than I've wanted to come to Barcelona... so fuck it... off I go... and probably will return with company when I'm old enough to rent a car and have had a reasonable amount of practice driving a standard transmission (only done that solo once, and thought I was going to kill my father's car).

also I need to whip out some motivation to do a project worth keeping in a portfolio, haven't got the grad-school time the rest of you have to spank out some work... I am beginning to feel like my design skills are coming together... I don't see buildings as much in little parts... some things are just right... cool, I haven't wasted my mother's hard earned money completely!!!

Gotta do some Rodney Yee, peace!

Wow. What is going on in the cosmos that all these crazy things have been happening to me?! I can't complain.
Last week i was sitting on the beach alone while some of the boys played soccer or football or something man-ish. Along comes a kite surfer running down the beach trying to control his kite that was flying around above the peoples heads that lay on the beach. I thought it was hilarious, though others were appauled. Out of no where (cue the singing angels) comes this gorgeous guy that grabs the kite down to the ground and out of the threat of decapitating everyone. I'm so dumbstruck (maybe a little high too) that I have this huge grin on my face as I stare at him. Good work, D, because he came up and talked to me. The idiotic state that I was in, I blurt out "you saved me". Ass.. But, it worked out well because after a good 20 minute conversation, he got the digits, said that he was leaving town but he would love to see me when he gets back. Oh, but i must mention that he texts me THAT DAY and says, "i can't stop thinking about your cute smile" and again later "... besos." I saw him again yesterday and I've been on cloud 9 since. He's a co-pilot for a german airline (so he's german), his name is Martin, his hobby is kitesurfing, he used to play bass guitar in a band (wow, wow, wow, wow...), he drives an old-school vespa, oh and did i mention that he's drop-dead gorgeous? But, oh and there's always a but, he has a girlfriend. WHAT THE FUCK. can i PLEASE get a WHAT THE FUCK?!!! This guy bought me a beer at the beach, bought me tea and a pastry at a cafe, bought me a beer at happy hour, drove me around on his Vespa, tells me that he thinks i'm cute, stares into my eyes, takes pictures, tells me he can't stop thinking about my cute smile? I really am at a loss for words. Without being over dramatic, I keep shaking my head unconciously because i just don't get it. Why would he tell me all these things and be so nice if he has a girlfriend? Can anyone explain this to me? Ah but he's so fun to look at. I love older men (oh yeah he's 28 oops.)

anyway, after he left p. flah's warren, sheldon, whitney, john, reid and i got shistie with these Welsh dudes. It was one's Bachelor Party, or, as they say over there in GB "Stag dues". They took Reid and I to a titty bar (the girl was fat and had fake tetas), bought us drinks there, took us to another pub where I met a long lost relative of the Fitzpatrick family who proceeded to tell me all about my irish heritage and introduced me to a traditional irish bevvy: Bed and Breakfast (Baily's and Brandy). I had to come back b/c i hadn't showered all day and was nasty....
anyway, that's my story. not like you guys care, but you should because I win.
LBC comes in a few hours, and tomorrow is our luncheon on the beach!

cheers

Well, last week my mom and sister came into the good ol' BCN for a few days. They had a good time while here, even though trying to decide what to do for dinner each night was a pain in the ass. We went to Ryan's Pub for the last night and had a good time drinking different beers and chilling with some of the people from the program. Now on a more depressing not, recently the workload has picked up quite a bit in all of our classes. There's not quite as much time to sit around and not do too much of anything. Luckily that hasn't stopped us from enjoying some interesting nights out at Chupitos and other places. Anyway, I need to get back to work on some studio stuff. Until next time...

Ah work work work sleep eat work. The book unveiling/signing went well today. Insane propers to my good friend Will. Also, thanks to all the little people who made this happen. I mean that literally, we actually had a team of midgets helping us get it done. If you're interested in some good Pigeon Kicking information, it's available at Happy Books and Barnes & Noble for 8 Euro. (that's 28 USD or 77.50 Canadian) Special thanks to Big John for providing such a good story for the book, and for keeping me from being the only one who's mercilessly killed a pigeon this semester. If anyone wants to come clean our Kitchen, feel free.

What's up with all the Spainish kids going crazy tonight? It's so loud in RESA and I have no idea why.

If anyone wants to give me money, let me know.

Wow we are actually having to do a lot of work now...It's like the vacation is almost over. Studio work is starting to get more intense and a research project is due pretty soon. Looks like it might be a pretty busy weekend. Just for future information I found two possible printing places: 1. Workcenter - Past Corte Ingles on Carrer d'Ausias Marc next to Plaza Urquinaona 2. Artyplan - On the corner of Via Laietana and Avenida Facesc Cambo (next to the Starbucks). However, the Workcenter did not print out at the right size, so you might want to give Artyplan a try. Anyways, now its time to get back to work.

Dear Sarah,

This post is to your prior inquiry on Amsterdam's XXX on the flag. I know you guys would love for it to mean something about porn, but I am sorry to have to bust this one. While finding some interesting information on the internet, I stumbled upon the Coat of Arms for Amsterdam...which went further into the meaning.

The coat of arms of Amsterdam is composed of three St Andrew's crosses, aligned vertically. Historians believe they represent the three dangers which have traditionally plagued the city: flood, fire, and pestilence. The city's official motto, Heldhaftig, Vastberaden, Barmhartig ("Valiant, Resolute, and Merciful") which is displayed on the coat of arms, was bestowed on it by Queen Wilhelmina in 1947 in recognition of the city's bravery during the World War II.


sorry to be a dork, but thought you guys might like to know.
peace bitches...back to work!

Hola amigos and BLOG!
For thirsty Thursdays, Happy hour has been a hit for us at P. Flaherty’s! I had a blast hanging out with all the guys; went beer for beer, smoked cigars, and talks of shaving….it was great! I found out Reid doesn’t get nervous and keeping up beer for beer with Whitney, will do a number on me. After that I was pretty much in for the night, but relentless Whitney talked me into going out and then gave me pep talks at the absinthe bar to take shots…as he claimed it was our one and only night to go all out before we leave! Warren’s ordering of jager bomb shots, ended up being jager bombs but not as shots…as drinks!!! I wasn’t really up for it, as I was having to force sips of it down, but then a little birdie in my ear (Whitney) was chanting for me to drink it and calling me a wuss, so I did! Needless to say, the rest of the night as you can guess, was pretty eventful. It was a blast, and high-fives all around who made it out that night…which was most of the guys and Sarah, Dana and I. Chupitos Bar was most fun and thanks to all the guys who bought rounds of shots. Just a recap on one crazy night in Barcelona! They tend to happen every once in a while.

Excuse me police,
I'm just sipping coffee.
I'm minding my business,
why is you trippin
why don't you get up off me.


Holla at your boy! Holding it down it Barcelona, bout to have to peace out of this biznatch. Got about three more weeks and the work load has just gotten serious. This week is going to be some hell, got lots of things due, but I'm just gonna keep sipping coffee and get this shit done. Been chillin at the beach a good bit lately, the weather has been too nice not to go out there and enjoy it. I do wanna find a big green area in the city and play some football or frisbee, something...I like running around in the sand but the rocks can be brutal on the feet. If anyone knows of a good space let me know, I would love to check it out. Well, it is nice outside and the Zine is calling me to get done so I guess I am out in the city bothering tourists as they check out the sites. Catch y'all on the flipside.

fire is beautiful
and we know that if we get
too close it will kill us
but what does that matter
it is better to be happy
for a moment
and be burned up with beauty
than to live a long time
and be burned all the while

when i am reading the blog like a dork....as if i don't know what you all are up to...and i notice that my last entry has been archived that usually means it's time to blog again. so in keeping the faith i will say this....i throughly enjoyed my 10 day free for all (yeah right!) around europe. amsterdam, rome, genoa, and cinque terre were all super. one of my favorite highlights was tudor getting hit on by the "24" (aka barely 18) year old (and that may be generous).....at the beach in riomaggiore....nice little set up though...if we were still in high school at first week or something (for the inlanders that is). a good thing about having a boyfriend hundreds of miles away is that once you say the b-word you generally get left alone.....haha. other than that the only other pitfall was our near death experience with ryan air. i had my very own little easter suday service on an airplane at 8 am as i bargained for my life for the second time and then a huge sigh of relief as we emergency landed in a field of an airport in france! needless to say i will NEVER fly ryan air again...in fact i may even try and get my money back since i arrived at my final destination 5 hours late and badly shaken. so i have decided that the only other problem with spring break is that it saps you of all motivation (oh yeah and money) right when you have tons of work to do. story of my life. so i am going to get on it now.....cause the suns not out enough to go to the beach....haha. jk?
