Barcelona memories

Here are just a few of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite cities. Dominated by Gaudi, I know, but he's just so good!

Oh, I've just been wittering on in your other post (the dancer guys). Keep the Barcelona pictures coming, blogger, because I love that place. It is freakishly gorgeous, isn't it?

And - double hurrah with cream on top - you look absolutely lovely, too. That was a good surprise to find you there. I really like knowing what my fellow bloggers look like.

Say hi to your cat and be sure to start teaching her Irish. She'll fall behind in school, otherwise. Word.

Kind regards cetra cetra....

Fabulous pictures!!! I see your sister's battery eating camera takes some good shots :-) You look awesome! Maybe we could take a jaunt over to barcelona when we come in June. It looks gorgeous & I'm jealous.

I LOVE the actual picture of the blogger. What a great shot of you!

TPE - I agree, Barcelona is just way too cool for words. I'll definitely be making a return trip. I think Meesha would age out of the Irish requirement, don't you? I pity the teacher who'd try to get pound Irish into her head. Meesha is no joke!

Sirmelja said...

Hello Mrs. CB! If you see my sister, would you let her know that I abjectly apologize for any and all disparagement of her wonderful camera? You're right, it takes great pictures! :-)

No need to be jealous. You're coming for 2 weeks, so there may just be time for a quick jaunt over to Barcelona. Check with Mr. CB.

Sirmelja said...

Hey n'drea, haven't heard from you for awhile. Glad you liked the pics :-)

Sirmelja said...

Beth, I decided to follow in your footsteps and be brave enough to out myself pictorially :-) Glad you liked the picture!

Thanks y'all for all the compliments. I'm blushing (but secretly pleased).

THE PERIODIC ENGLISHMAN said...

Yay. Being secretly pleased totally rules, doesn't it? It's a brilliant feeling. You are super gorgeous, though - but enough already, before you start getting all secretly big-headed.

Anyway, look. Meesha may very well be too old to attend school, Sirmelja, but surely you have heard of night classes? If she wants to hang out with Irish cats - and she will - then she's going to need a smattering of Irish. You would have her being entirely misunderstood by her new feline friends? Why would you do that, blogger, why?

Besides, newly arrived family pets - whatever their age - are expected to join the government sponsored organisation GASP (Gaelic And Stuff for Pets). Everyone knows this. Sheesh.

My dog speaks five languages. No, eleven. Shame on you.

(all of the above is 100% true, except for most of it.)

(sorry - couldn't resist it.)

Sirmelja said...

You are an evil, evil man!

tpe said...

I know. My bad.

I'm funny too, though, if I say so myself - and I do, Sirmelja, I do.

Anyway, I hope you're happy and well, silent blogger.

Hey Black Irish, I like the addition of cyber meesha. I got her to bat at me and spin her head but how do you make her bite?
Only love, only love. I have a great picture of the little darling in the window I will send you soon.
Much love,
Laurie

Hey Laurie! I can't believe you're back home already :-( I had a great time when y'all were here, despite gaining 5 lbs from all the eating we did :-)

BTW, I'm standing on my dignity (I'll find it around here somplace) and ignoring your little snarky comment about Meesha biting. You know she loves you! :-)

Sirmelja said...

Thanks Jamaican Girl! Glad to run into another one :-)
