The Rosa system on Measuring

(As taken from the original "Rosa's adventures in wonderland" where I wrote about funny/odd/amusing things that I had said/had happend to me and everybody became very amused and for a short while realised the full weight of my incredible intellect i.e alot)

I am not very spacialy aware. In fact I am rather unaware. When people tell me there height they have to tell me in feet if not I have no idea what then meen and refuse to learn other ways of measuring. Even then I can only pretty much estimate that 6 ft is "tall but not as tall as my brother" and 5"6 is "about my height". Meters are beyond me. Cms dont exist in my world. Mms dont even try.

Recently I at a bar for a semi-good friends going away party. A friend and I had managed to isolate ourselves from the gathering and sat in the corner laughing at jokes that only we would find funny and usualy dont even involve full sentences. This semi-friend is an Architect and he had some cool stylish architect friends hanging around and looking suave. One of them was kind enough to involve himself in my friend and I's isolated giggleing fest. As I attempted to sound knoledgeable about architecture (some what common ground and he designs houses and I have been known to live in them...). I asked him if he considered himself very spacaly aware. He said "Yes I suppose I am really".

Now after this things become a little fuzzy for me. I remember say "Ah yes Im not atall spacaly fact the only way I can ever really judge the size if things is that once read the average male penis is about 3 to 4 inches when soft and 6 when erect. So when people tell me somthing is about 6 inches I just imagine a penis..."

Yes I told the world that I mesure in penii. And yes the plural of penis is penii.

But why cant this be a legitamet form of mesuring? We measure in feet dont we? in hands? why not the penis?....Im going to write a book based on this method (i imagine it will be quite short...about 6 inches?....u just imagined a penis didnt you??)

Of course questiors arose (sic) of what is average and maybe my pereception of average could be some whate warped but I assured everyone that (soley for scientific reserch) I had thourghly investigated this.

Which is of course a joke.

update: I have since been informed for future refernce a 30cm ruler is about "2 cocks"

Anyway distract yourself from this filth with pretty pictures:

Handbags and Burritos

Yesterday I ate a burrito, played with my camera and my friends




and then a man tried to steal my handbag, But I didnt let go. There are somethings which this girl would never let go of and clearly my handbag is one of them.





Autumn is beautiful and sadly it is fadeing and the bright leaves are being replaced by twinkly christmas lights.


Fair trade.

Cornered Beef

Having a reletionship with someone where you dont share the same first language can be fun, confusing, frustrating and often amusing...

My boyfriend and I communicate in english, Spanish is his first language but he learnt english while working in London.

Some people have great trouble understanding him but I find it easy.


Hes a chef and recently he called me when I was out and told me he made me dinner. "I have made you arepas and cornered beef" he told me.

I laughed but he still dosnt seem to understand whats so funny about cornered beef!

(he is cute though)


(I had images of coming home and him looming over a poor lump of beef in the corner o the kitchen)

p.s Play was great, next week Im working with a drag queen yay yay!

I cant seem to add pictures to my posts unless they only show up as text when Im editing them which I cant handle! How am I supposed to edit or move them? Can anybody help me???!

Red hair and sequins

Remember when I said I was going to grow me hair ad keep it brown? Well I didnt. Instead I moved in to a flat that has beautiful autumnal leaves around the windows. So instead I decided to do a short side a lá the Galmouria and dyed it a red the colour of grenadine.


But this colour
The days are shorter, the nights are darker. I want to sparkle.

My whole life Ive been hooked on changeing the house to suit the seasons. Id spend hours pouring over my moms "country living" magazinez, collecting wildflowers and drying leaves, longing for dry summers and winters so I could recreate the candle light dinner parties and picnics.


My nesting instinct is strong, any new room I move into is immediatly filled with lamps, scarves, pictures, all the little objects I have picked up, grown attached, or carted from house to house and back forth from ireland with me over the year.

Christmas is of course the ideal time for someone like me, an oppertunity to go over the top and decorate without anyone telling me not too! Heres some fotos from my house last year...
I wonder what ll do this year :-)

p.s Ohai (inside a black apple) lady...can I have you room please?

Home sweet home

The lack of activity blog-wise has been due to a series of unfortunate events...

I found the most beautiful apartment and had planned to move in last monday, however when I went to sign the contract on saturday mornig the woman decided she wasnt sure if she wanted to rent to me anymore! My boyfriend and I had to move out of our flats on Sunday and were left without any choice but to pack up and move to a hostel.

Luckily, the universale delivery service dropped a beautfiul room at our feet early on this week but as is Murphys law, the woman rang me after I had paid for the new room and told me she had reconsidered and decided she would rent to us. However as I had already made a 3 month deal with someone else and spent a small fortune on moving once, paying to stay in a hostel, paying for the new room, moving AGAIN and because I wasnt sure if I wanted to be locked into a deal with someone who changed their mind so easily, I told her I wasnt interested...

So although I am happy in our little room I am still pineing for the flat of my dream that I almost had (twice).

Thank you all for the well wishes :-) I appreciate it!

On a lighter note the boyfriend friend is a big famous artist and Im attending his opening show here in barcelona 2moro night. The guys kind of Banksy-style so I need to be kind of Facehunter-chic. Cultured, polished yet acheingly hip. I need inspo! Anyone have any great ideas  for me? Im considering a black plastic bag as my wardrobe seems devoid of choice...

Besos xxxx

p.s sorry for all text no images, my internet seems to be on strike!
