corner view "weekend evenings"


Friday 7:45; Cinema with B. We saw The Proposal. It´s amazing how well Sandra Bullock speaks in Spanish...



Saturday 7:45; Pinchos (tapas) with friends. "Having pinchos" is based entirely on the honor system. You order a beer and take as many as you want, and when you finish you tell the bartender how many you´ve had, and he charges you. Do you think this would work in the States?...



Sunday 7:45; Cheerymania (cherry ice cream with dark chocolate chunks) with Jorge. It´s to die for... (Have you noticed that I´m wearing a SWEATER!...)

Can´t wait to see how you spent your weekend. See many more creative Corner Views here:

Next week´s theme is "best kept secret". It will also be the last one of the summer. I´ll be away in August with no internet access. (Personally, I think my family is staging a little intervention...) Corner View will start again in September. Until then, start thinking up ideas of things you´d like to see! Thanks everyone!

¡Dos Besos!

glad I could offer some inofficial corner view from ireland to Spain. I will probably join in in September. Eliane

There are certain shows and movies that I simply cannot watch in German... especially when you know how the actor sounds in real life.

It seems that Germans are also very trustworthy, but I am assuming that your question was, of course, rhetorical. I love the idea that you have to pay for a shopping cart here, only to get your money back upon return, but I could imagine in the States... one would wander through the store saying... "I know I left my cart here"

Just can't beat ice cream in the summer... you can find Italian ice cream shops everywhere here in the summer.

What, you're leaving for a month! boo hoo you. I love that you sneaked that picture in the theatre!! LOL!! and do you mean "our B" of Cuttings? I'm confused.
I almost hate to post mine as it was no where near as exciting as your weekend...pouty lip... Ali.
in Switzerland when you take a newspaper for free service, you can leave without pay if you want because nobody is there to monitor you ... except of course, you put the swiss money in the box, an issue of honesty !
But how do you watch your movie in cinema? feet in the air? ;)

Your food shots always look like they are out of a food magazine and they always make me hungry. There may be some places here in the states where that honor system for tapas would work, but I don't think it would work in a college town like we live in. After living for awhile on ramen and take-out pizza, I think it warps your morals when real food is involved.
Love these. You are so good at this. And I want that ice cream. YUM!!!!!
caitlin said…
You have great style Miss Jane. I loved your weekend shots. And let's be honest.. if you drank a lot of beers would you remember how many there were?? I laughed so hard during the Proposal!
Kathy said…
No, it would NEVER work in the States! People would just assume it's an all you can eat buffet!!!! that comes with the price of the beer.
Kimmie said…
1) I loved that movie :)
2) no, it wouldn't work here - not much self control in the food area
3) is it cold there?

p.s. my vacation coincides with yours - what a relief - I didn't want to miss out :)
Kari said…
You have a beautiful life Jane.
Great photo's and what a wonderful summer weekend.
That ice-cream looks good.
janis said…
Food and cinema... This is why corner view was so difficult this week for me, I got distracted by food, cinema and the same! Though when the time comes (soon) I will do my best to post something close to the theme ;)

Happy holiday away from the computer, and looking forward to your return! Besos ...
Erin said…
I walked by our local theater this weekend and noticed "The Proposal" was playing. Would love to see it, but have a feeling I'll be going to "Ice Age" instead. :) I love the photo of you and the ice cream cone.. such a sweet simple pleasure. Looks like you had a lovely weekend!
ladybug-zen said…
sounds divine. love the photos.
Jodi said…
Oh Jane - good luck with the intervention... hehe. The shots are great and NO WAY in the states. I think too many beers is a certain sign that the numbers would be off. Cheers! Jodi
Lisa notes... said…
What fun to see how you spend weekend nights in Spain!
Amy Bradstreet said…
Oops, I almost forgot about CV for this week, until I saw your lovely post, that is. Around here, the honor system is frequently used for things like holiday wreaths farm fresh eggs and veggies and sometimes admission to an event or park.

I'm loving your top in the ice cream shot. It looks like you had a perfect weekend. Wonderful!
aimee said…
a charmed weekend! just perfect!
nicola said…
you kill me with the food! yum!
and that shirt you are wearing is so cute!

Love the feet!
Looks like a perfect weekend!
Francesca said…
No, I honestly can't believe you're wearing a sweater: what's the rest of the dress like?! Beautiful fabric, it must be Spanish, and I love the icecream scoop pattern:)!
liza said…
What a fun weekend! I love them all, especially your ice cream photo!
Myrtille said…
I can't play during holidays but i will be there on september. Happy holidays!
trinsch said…
what a lovely line of summer weekend evenings!

the beer thing would never work in denmark, cause people would be too drunk to remember in the end. and here in half would "forget" :)

have a lovely day
ibb said…
Seems great weekend.
One more and holidays.
B said…
Mmh! Yummy weekend!
I miss going for pinchos. I'm myself always amazed with that system (it's a Basque Country thing), but it must work if they are still doing it...
I always look forward to your corner views, they never disappoint!
I always like your program ! Have a nice day Jane ! Besos...
MUS said…
mmm what a delicious post!!
MUS said…
oh, and think i'm missing on the list ;-{)
Cabrizette said…
An other great week-end Jane !!! Bises
Cate said…
is watching sandra with a voiceover an improvement?

tapas honor system. well, i'm pretty sure that in most places this wouldn't work in america, land of the all-you-can-eat. it depends, though. when i lived in the east village, there was a coffee place that functioned like that. not sure whether they made any money or not. they did make a lot of loyal friends and customers.

the ice cream...oh yes! now we're talking. delicious.

i'm still reeling from that beach shot in your previous post, though. you're amazing all around.
n a t s u m i said…
Oh, I love tapas! There is my favorite tapas bar/restaurant in NY! They serve great wines too!

The ice cream looks delicious too! mmm.. I am hungry now... oxox
Erin said…
Btw.. love your sandals and polka top top.. you have fantastic style!
jgy said…
I love the photo of your feet up in the theater, and of the ice cream cone. The posts for this series have a cinema feeling to me. Did you ever make movies? Maybe you have, you have such a good eye.
Best! I'm late today to post...!
la ninja said…
aha, now I've found your blog (through a lovely colleague) you're off to internet-less land? ;)

I've really enjoyed what I've (briefly) seen, so I'd like to stick around (even if I have to wait 'till "la vuelta al cole")
how does one participate, btw?

cheers,
la ninja
rinomata said…

i'm really happy i'vo found your blog, is lovely
:)
Ida Nielsen said…
That ice cream looks yummy!! And I love the idea of 'eat, count and pay' while drinking beer...haha. Hopefully it turns out in favor of the restaurant ;-)
Ritva said…
oh dear,
i should have spent it with you!

and i have to confess that my friday and saturday just went by :(

hugs!
kyndale said…

Loved the Proposal. Looks like a fantastic weekend!
denise said…

Pamela said…
Great post, Jane. Sweater weather, I love it!
malo said…
It looks like a fantastic weekend. A movie, good food, friends, love and ice cream. Not much to add.
Joyce said…
Jane looks like a grrrrreat weekend. I love tapas too!
latisha said…
love that first pic. they had honor beer in prauge too when we were there. not sure this would work in the US, though some restaurants do have 'honor' wine. they just leave it at the table and you tell em...
travelingmama said…
Love your corner view this week! My first movie in a theater in Spain was SpiderMan. It cracked us up listening to Speedermon. The theater was packed with kids and they all went nuts during the love scenes. It was really fun! I also wondered what the Spanish thought when they showed the newspaper in English without a translation.
april said…
tapas....sounds wonderful to me..and i like the light in spain - in your photos - in the evening between afternoon and night*kiss
Pamela said…
We've got a clam shack within walking distance, too! Their clam strips are to die for!
Guusje said…
Hi Jane, i've been told that my link on your list doesn't work anymore. Could you have a look for me please? Lots of love, Guusje
epe said…
mmmmmmm quiero pintxos, muchos!
i'll miss you in august jane!
aimee said…
had to come back for another look at those pinchos! (i live in a college town; that would never work here. the place would go bankrupt!)
MisterE said…
What a great way to spend a weekend!
Susi said…
sandra in spanish? must be the same as a spanish flamingo singer singing in chinese!!!
i really want to see that movie, i like her a lot as i like your blog!!
Guusje said…
Thank you, dear Jane!!!!
Bonnie said…
wow ... your weekend was amazing ! are all your weekends like that ?? :) i can't wait til our kids are old enough that we can see movies that have a more than G rating together. i mean, i like ice age and all but ... you know !
MODsquad said…
Sandra speaking spanish... hilarious!

The ice cream and your shirt look lovely!

Happy Day, Jane!
Joanna Jenkins said…
You had me at Cherrymania! That is one seriously good looking ice cream cone!! Nice sweater to ;-)

Lisa said…

Have a lovely weekend.

dorit said…
Love this week's corner views! Sorry I didn't participate. I forgot it and now I can't even remember what I did at the weekend ;)
Dorte said…
Great post ... that ice-cream looks yummi! Must be nice to have to wear a SWEATER in the evenings these days!
Yoshy G said…
your snapshots of life in spain are definitely helping me through my last days in the States. the pictures are SO inspiring and they make me SO excited to be moving there! AHH I can't wait!
Esti said…
for some reason every actor and actress speak Spanish perfectly. It's in their genes, I guess... And funny, how I think it's so natural to wear sweaters in summertime too... ;)
(By the way, I kinda dislike Ryan Reynolds... Me da grima, and that keeps me from watching that movie...)
kim said…
not only does sandy b. speak spanish, but she has a place on tybee! i'll send you the link! (it's only a few grand a night, in case you're interested!)
