Hey Dina! Just wanted to come on and say I was so happy for you. I remember how excited you would be for the World Cup and Messi. I was rooting for you!

Thank you Jin! You are so sweet! (((((((((((((((Jin)))))))))))))))) I hope you are doing well.
Argentina (the country I mean) was a party yesterday! It was so beautiful!  :)

What a match! Again, like with Netherlands, it seemed that we had all solved, all was well, and then in 2 minutes all went South and we ended in the penalties. But this time the supplementary time was even more emotional.

Yesterday (tuesday) was declared a National Holiday so people could go to the streets to see the players (and the cup) who were in a bus without roof for some hours until it was too much, they took a detour, board some helicopters and went back to the place were they all were spending the night. Apparently it was the more crowded manifestation in Argentina's history, including other World Cups (we won in 1978 and 1986) and the funerals of beloved people. Newspapers are talking about around 5 million people on the streets. It was incredible. So much joy. Argentina really needed it. Of course, our problems are not solved, but at least we were happier for a while. Besides, our players are nice and respectful people.

This is nice to hear. I am happy for you, Dina! :)


Apparently Mab is on holiday or something. Probably plotting with Kringle. She forgot to keep it cold here. All the ice and snow is gone and has been replaced by rain.
But OK, like this it will be safer to drive tomorrow. We will be having Christmas at our home.

I wish everyone a very merry Christmas!! :) ;D:) ;D:) ;D:) ;D

It is so weird to have Christmas decorations and Argentine flags, t-shirts and things like that all at the same time. The only December World Cup!
Argentinians apparently just remembered Christmas was coming after the Tuesday celebrations, so a lot of people invaded the stores to do shopping for gifts. I went to buy some pants (not as a gift, just because the old ones were too well-loved) and in some places it was terrible difficult to walk. It was full of people!

And Happy New Year for everyone!! Stay safe and have a lot of fun!

My Christmas were nice, and then I've spent the Christmas evening and dinner at my cousin's house, with family (2 dogs included). It was good and there was delicious food. I also got some great gifts, one of them was the full Mary Poppins books. I am looking forward to my vacation, so I can have time to enjoy it.
