Second Life - The Online 3D Virtual World

This is the first video you'll see when loading the page of the Linden Lab game's official website.


Another day...on Holidays...xD

Today I had a crisis with my right eye.
I thought it would pass more quickly like always but it didn't.
What you can say?
At last I wore my glasses and didn't take them off untill I was just a step away from the sea.

The sea was today crystal clear.
And soon enough we learned why. There was a whole bunch of little fish and a much bigger one right behind them.
Probably trying to catch some? Who knows?
It wasn't the perfect situation for us, that we aren't used to it. But ok.

I just had a bath.
And now I'm sitting on the yard once again.
My grandpa is sleeping next to me. Poor pappou!
What can you say, though?
In a few hours we'll go out with an uncle, an aunt and my 3 cousins!
All of them boys! But I never get bored with them.
Oh I have to ask them their numbers once again this year. OOF!

The song?

Another day in Paradise - Phil Collins

Getting used to holidays...

Well, I tried to upload a new photo but you know.. The usual problm...: INTERNET!

Tonight we had another UNO Party! So cool!
We ate a wholepan of pop corn with so many glasses of water because it had so much salt. After that we needed something sweet. So we ate the biscuits that are HALF WITH CHOCOLATE, HALF WITH STRAWBERRY, and then the biscuits that have SOME CHOCOLATE ON THEM, and right after all that a whole CHOCOLATE... Wow. I'm full with just the thought of ALL THESE!
We were the same people [Dimitra, Artemis and me] and Danai was added after some point..

Right now I'm sitting on my bed. Pappous [aka Grandfather] left almost half an hour ago.
Although I'm really nervous about this school year, I want to go back home. Well, not right now. Generally..
I don't know.
This is my final year at school and I can't wait for it to be over. It's the most difficult one, too..
Axx [in Greeklish...] -.-

Still on holidays!

This is one of the last photos I was able to take just minutes before my camera's screen betrayed me! My Lorelle has stopped working. I can take photos but the screen will always remain black like the night. It doeasn't matter, though. For now, I mean! Because I have my Calma! My mobile has 12 megapixel camera!
I just saw, by the way, that once again I DON'T HAVE INTERNET! Grrr...
Today I went to buy a modem from COSMOTE so that we'll be able to have Internet. And right now I'm connected not only to that modem, but also to the connection of my cousins! Aidaa...
Stupid Notebook. I'm sorry my Godric, but... [Now I've mentioned all my 3 children! Wiii! xD]

Today the sea was very wild. Many waves. They were also high. We liked them.

Oh! Catiana and Ed left on Saturday morning! There were so many english companies. They had a 2-3 hour delay, though. From 3:45 they left at 5:30...

[My dad was right. It's not that I relaxed, though. More like I made a program...]

Ah! I joined Second Life!
Soo nice! I can't wait. But this bitchy Internet I'm never able to play... Oof...
I'll join Hogwarts, too!

Is any of you also a member? If yes, then you can email me or something so that we can be friends!

Depeche Mode - Everything Counts

The handshake
Seals the contract
From the contract
There's no turning back
The turning point
Of a career
In Korea, being insincere
The holiday
Was fun packed
The contract
Still intact

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
All for themselves
After all

It's a competitive world
Everything counts in large amounts

The graph
On the wall
Tells the story
Of it all
Picture it now
See just how
The lies and deceit
Gained a little more power
Taken in
By a sun tan
And a grin

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
All for themselves
After all

It's a competitive world
Everything counts in large amounts

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
Everything counts in large amounts



I'll always remember you! You were the best cat ever!
I'll keep the secret! Don't worry...

Xchanging Boat Race 2010 Promo

Mathew Pinsent introduces the Boat Race Promotional Video 2010. Copyright BRCL.

This is a video I found on YT of Cambridge Vs Oxford boat races!
They're annual and whoever joins gets a lot of glory!
Thank you, Ed for telling me about the two Universities' rivalry!

More info about the race:

The annual boat race between the teams of Oxford and Cambridge Universities is held on the River Thames in London. It is a major social event with all the vantage points along the river booked well in advance. The teams train for a year and virtually give up their academic studies for the period. In the UK anyone who has rowed or coxed in the Boat Race is virtually guaranteed a job for life because of the prestige it brings. It is always covered on television. This year was on a Sunday due to the tide but it is more often on a Saturday.

Sitting on the yard..

Right now we are 3 people on the yard.
Dad, Ed and I!
My mum is with Cat in the kitchen talking!

Some minutes ago, we were much more people here, though..
Danai, Artemis, Dimitra, Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Michael, Aunt Niki and all the people mentioned abov, of course!
But after 4 of the majors left and we were totally 8 people on the yard, we started saying the numbers in many languages: English, Greek, German, French, Welsh, Italian, Japanese...

It was so fun! We have  agreat time together!
In a bit we'll leave, though..
Going back to the hotel where Catiana and Ed live! And then my parents and I'll come back home!

Let's hope that today I'll manage to sleep at least 8 hours!...

Good night for now, although I'll probably send something here...


This is the sweetest dog ever!
Her name is Nefeli [It's greek...]

Isn't she very sweet?

Right now she's next to me,  not very close, but it doesn't really matter!

She's so sweet. If I ever wanted to have a dog it would be exactly like her! In everything!

She LOVES it when we pet her!
She barks a lot sometimes, but she's scared og my grandma, so when she shouts Nefeli stops immediately barking! It's so fun looking at it!

She is a mix of Pekinoua and Griffon!

Oh! She also LOVES food! Actually she wants some oh human food! She doesn't eat her own! But when she gets hungry... It doesn't really matter I guess whether she eats human or dog food!

Stupid Internet Connection!

Well, The Internet has been a bitch for so many days now...
I can't stand it...
I have to sit on one side so that I'll remain connected...
How stupid, God!


I should absolutely say about my holidays and they way I spend them!
I should also upload some photos, but I don't think it'll be possible right now because of the stupid connection...
