My geofumadas

Geofumadas, which accompanies my gray hairs

I had to live in a different time, when I was a kid, my hobbies after the 5 in the afternoon was to play a football game with the neighbors, until the ball went to the fence of the grumbling neighbor or just did not look for the darkness; by then the electric power arrived, enough reason to go to watch television at the house of the only neighbor who had that privilege.

We watched series that now only happen in Boomerang, Tom and Jerry, Heidi, The Smurfs; others that from time to time I see in TCM as The A Team, The incredible Hulk ... J *, I better not follow that they can take me for guachupín or I can scratch half of a tear to some.

Now my boys live in a new era, they cannot go outside because it is not safe, so they must be visited by their friends. They prefer a painful punishment than a week without watching television and although absorbed in their world, I in mine, it is necessary to find a consensus to share hobbies and from time to time turn off the wireless, disconnect the mobile, lie down on the grass and let are thrown at you.

One of 10 years, exaggeratedly creative, cartoonist, in his fourth grade, into the world of building cartoons with his own characters that one day he hopes to commercialize to be famous ... simple and complex as php is.


The baby, from 6 yearsHe spends time in the mirror, a habit that already worries me. Tender, expressive, changing her teeth but always… technological, although she prefers to do it with my Motorola, she has spent my memory taking videos that one day I myself will enjoy watching.


And although I insist on preserving some customs that seem obsolete, such as going to the park, fleeing from the mall as much as possible, taking them for a walk inland, it has not been possible to disengage them from the current trend, in which half of their words sound like silicon . Partly to see me absorbed in it, partly because it comes in their veins, here are some words from them.

The phrases

    • Daddy, why do you always walk that one Asus in my hand?… by the way, can you lend it to me now that there's no wireless?
    • I know you are going to check your mail
    • ¿We chat? I from the room
    • Can I put on the wish list a Wii ?


    • How much we won today?
    • Let's look for my school in Google Earth... now I alone
    • Can you upload this Megaman drawing to your blog?
    • Send me for him Bluetooth


    • Do you adjust to buy it with Paypal?
    • Do you add me to your Hi5!! ?
    • When will you help me move on to Wordpress?
    • I think he fell the wirelessHave you paid yet?



This is a collection of memories that I have in my office, my son gave me an I-dog, she a rubber Dalmatian and made him a bowtie from a plastic bag. He made me a drawing of Megaman X with the legend "Demo Version for Daddy", she a blue star with glitter that says "Daddy I love you"

In the midst of a mixture of technologies with old games, we have found a good space that I think they will not forget… and neither will I, especially since my responsibility to travel a lot becomes complicated. They have learned to know rules, one day he will possibly be a great publicist, she an architect ... there are phrases that from this time that I will also like to remember:

  • Today is not Internet day
  • Will you leave me only 5 for more minutes and will you discount them tomorrow?
  • My mom will not let me
  • I love you daddy!

Anyway, if I were always around leaving comments you would get bored of me ... so I appear when something seems special to me and when what you write transports me to other places, moments, sensations ... By the way, children look very pretty, I never had said, right?
