You guys. I have six Antonio related icons. Shaki is no longer engaged to/dating Antonio. While they have said in a press release statement that they consider this separation to be temporary, she is dating someone new. Enter Gerard Piqué. They are very adorable together. My love for Antonio is still pretty strong but I have to accept that Shaki has moved on in her romantic life. She is still friends with Antonio and he is still her business partner. So my question to you all is...do I keep a solo Antonio but remove the Shantonio icons and add some Shiqué ones as well as a solo Piqué ? Seems to me the best option. It feels weird having OTP Shantonio icons when they aren't together anymore. I mean, it's not a tv show pairing...I have no say whatsoever in who she dates. Oi. I am growing fond of Piqué but I really loved her with Antonio. Damn real life all to hell haha

Dear Friends,

During our almost 11 years together we have loved each other deeply, taken care of each other and stood by one another. They have been the most wonderful years of our lives, and thanks to that love and the respect that we share for one another we have been an exceptional couple and partners.

However, since August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship. Throughout this time we have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private until now.

We view this period of separation as temporary and as a time of individual growth as we continue to be partners in our business and professional lives.  

Antonio continues to oversee and conduct my business and career interests as he has always done. We move forward as partners, developing projects together, working hand in hand and in close communication. Our friendship and understanding of one another is unwavering and indestructible.

We would like to advise that we will not be giving interviews or making more statements with respect to this matter and we appreciate in advance your understanding and respect during this sensitive time in our lives.

Shakira and Antonio

Okay so..this explains the lack of pictures of the two of them together. Temporary? I fucking hope so. I mean as long as they still love each other then I want them together. If something has changed then I hope they wouldn't force it...but man, you guys..I love them together so much. I just want them to be happy. So whatever that means I wish them well.

At least now I can fantasize that Shaki is a lesbian. You know until she gets back with him or dates someone else. haha

First post of the new year. Oh the excitement! haha I haven't been up to too much. The new year is starting off kind of slow. Been sick with migraines and the stomach flu. Feeling better now though so yay for that.

I calculated my books for last year and I am ashamed. I only read 59 books. WHAT?? That doesn't sound right at all...I know I was under a lot of stress and therefore slept or had migraines a lot but still...I can't believe I read so little. :( This year I plan on reading mostly books I've never read before instead of mostly rereads. I keep buying books and piling them up and then I reread Stephen King instead of reading them. haha So not this year! Oh, I'm sure I'll reread my King books. Let's not kid ourselves, eh? But I really do intend to read a bunch more "new" books as well. :)

I've been working on 4 mixes. I'm making them for my brother's lady friend, Rose. I tweaked a Shakira mix and a Madonna mix I had made in '09. Originally the Shakira mix was split into two: English and Spanish. This time I chose 25 songs and put English and Spanish together. The Madonna mix I changed a few songs around track number wise and then switched a song for another. I also made a Brandi Carlile mix that is fantastic! I'm still working on the Patty Griffin mix. I could only find 3 of her albums so it's kind of limited. Luckily the three I found are my favorites so it works out :)

That's pretty much what I've been up to. Like I said, it's been pretty dull. Hopefully I'll have more things to talk about soon.

I don't know how many of you remember or know how much I've always loved Edgar Renteria but yeah. I have. So much. I know he wasn't very good when he played for the Red Sox in '05 and I know a lot of people liked him better on the Cardinals since he was the last out that let the Sox win the World Series in '04 but I've always adored him. So I was extremely happy to see the San Francisco Giants make the playoffs and then win the World Series and for Edgar to win Most Valuable Player. You better believe my Renteria bobblehead was going furiously!! haha He won MVP back in '97 for the Florida Marlins at the beginning of his career with a series winning home run. Guess how he won it this time? Yeah. He is fucking awesome. I am so happy for him! What a way to finish off his career. I really do hope he retires and goes out on top. With the injuries he's had the last few years it'd be wise to go out gracefully. He seems like such a genuine person that I believe he will do just that. Check out this article. It's sweet. Awww Edgar!!

Shaki tweeted about his win. hehe Aww. They are from the same place: Barranquilla, Colombia. Any of you want to guess how much I would squee if I ever find a picture of the two of them hanging out together? Yeah. It'd be off the charts. :)

As much as I would have LOVED the Red Sox to even make the playoffs let alone win the World Series...I am SUPER happy for the San Francisco Giants. Well deserved! :)

Why yes. I laugh at that every single time I look at it or even think of it.

I think it's so adorable that she wears lil kid colors on her nails. Also. I want to lick her armpit. Is that wrong?

The best news I've heard this week? THIS JUST OUT with Liz Feldman is BACK!!! It starts on Monday which just happens to be National Coming Out Day...oh Liz. :) For those of you who don't know who Liz is...shame on you...and here is a brief introduction to her awkward interview skills. Love this woman.

So far I've kept true to my word to watch at least 1 horror movie a day for the 31 days of October. I'm watching the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead right now. Cracks me up that Bill Moseley was in it. :)

That's it folks. Don't forget to check out Jane Lynch hosting SNL tonight. :)

Izzy is at it again. She killed another chipmunk. :( I can't help but be proud of her hunting prowess but I am so sad for the lil rodents. They just don't have a chance once she spots them. I came out of the house and saw it at the foot of the stairs and she came scampering around the side of the house, meowing, chirping actually, and did a little dance. She was so happy with herself. Then Irvy walked over it and his lame back leg stepped on it so he turned around and gobbled it up. I shrieked. He dropped it. Then Izzy hissed at him. Pawed the dead chipmunk, saw it was relatively the same as she'd left it then moved on. Then I walked Irvy. My animals are awesome.

Speaking of awesome animals: WILD TURKEYS!!!!!!! There were 4 wild turkeys on my street today. Four JUMBO wild turkeys!!!! I tried to get pictures but the humidity fucked up my camera lens. :(

It is the last night of September and you know what this means kiddies. OCTOBER!! So ... 31 horror movies!! No no for real. I'm going to do it this year. Probably more than that (as usual) but at least one a day. I'm going to have to use HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and Encore to add to my own collection. Although I might actually own over 30 horror movies. Hm. I shall check. I'll let you know what I watch. :)

I think I'm going to promote [community profile] shaki  in [site community profile] dw_community_promo and see if I can't get some more members.

I just checked out some previews for all of the tracks off Shaki's new album Sale El Sol and you guys..she wasn't lying when she said there are some songs that are a lot like songs off of Pies Descalzos. YAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!! I am so fucking excited for this album now. Also the new video is out and I AM SO THRILLED with how screen-cappable it is. ICONS GALORE!!


And with that I am done. It's almost time for The Rachel Maddow Show. Hope all of you are well. :)

Hi kiddies! It is time to squee!! Yay!!

First off, this wonderful quote from Madonna: "Speak your mind but not louder than me." haha I love her so fucking much. Who doesn't really, deep down, feel that way? Exactly. We all want to be educated and hear from each person and see every side of the situation but deep down we expect that we'll be logical  / right and therefore unless you agree with us, shut up. But yeah. She said it during an interview with Lola on the red/pink carpet of Lola's new clothing line Material Girl. Speaking of which, I cannot get over how grown up Lola and Rocco are. I feel so old but then, I suppose, Madonna does, too.

The preview clip for the music video to Shaki's new single "Loca" is out today and I'd like to make a prediction based on these 30 seconds: I will make more icons from this music video than any of Shaki's previous videos. Ohmyeverlovinggod does this look like a fun time. :)
the clip plus 99283758235 things unrelated to Shaki )
