A NEW ARGENTINA FOR CHRISTMAS.

History-making events in Argentina! A woman assumed the presidency and it just so happens she is the wife of the outgoing president, Néstor Kirchner! His parents were Swiss/Croatian I believe. So just as hubby relinquishes power, the first lady comes in (rightfully elected by the people) and is now leader of the nation. Her name is Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and she's quite an attractive dame I must say. They both make a nice couple. Very photogenic these two, kind of like our current version of the Kennedys, the Clintons! As powerful and beloved as Madon...ER, I mean, Evita Perón was back in the day, even SHE did not get to become president like Cristina. So yes, she gets to continue living in La Casa Rosada, not just as the mere primera dama anymore. Wow. The Kirchners have been very popular in Argentina, leading the country into a bit of an economic boom, compared to a few years back where their economy was in the toilet. Wonder if BILLARY will get to make history in our country next year?

My Xmas tree is up and looks nice and festive, but I seriously can't wait till Xmas comes and goes in the next two weeks! Good riddance. I feel bad that I haven't really done any gift shopping yet, and I probably won't even do that much, if any, to be honest. The finances are tough this year, and although I love those close to me and stuff, I not only do not have as much cash as I have had maybe in years past, but the idea of having to step into a mall or store at this time of year makes me cringe. I guess Target is okay. I kinda like Target, for it is a pretty cool store with reasonable stuff and prices, but I'm just not a shopper to be honest. If I am gonna get anything, I better just do it online on Amazon.com, but now would be the time to do it so I can get my shipment in time for Xmas. If not, I can always call them New Year's gifts right?

Can you believe this crazy dude has a blog?!

She is one hot world leader, that's for sure. Hillary can't come close to her on looks. This is making Buenos Aires look more attractive for a semester abroad...

I did my seasonal (forced) shopping with one click of the mouse button. Everyone gets the same thing cause I hate shopping.

Well yes. The president of Iran has a blog. It is great to see such an influencial world leader share his thought. He has based his regime on being the "common man". I wish I could read the arabic language just to see how this man thinks.

G.B. "You want me to blog? Is that like log spliiting? Cause I already got plenty wood for a fire"

Good for Cristina Fernández de Kirchner! I love La Casa Rosada ever since I heard Patti LuPone sing it in Evita. It is sad isn't it that my first history lesson on Argentina came through a Broadway musical...and my second from a blog. (It is not really that bad but it smacks of drama doesn't it?)

As for shopping, I am following a theme this year. It is PJs for almost everyone. I have never had a theme before but it does make things easier.

Argentina and Chile now have two sane, progressive, moderate women as their leaders. Sadly, most people in the U.S. only know about that piece of garbage Chavez who diminishes all the other steps forward taking place in South America.
