Earlier today David Villa presented the eighth edition of the book ”Relatos Solidarios” – a compilation of short stories written by 42 journos with Villa contributing as well. The book was dedicated to Dani Montesinos, a journalist who tragically died in an accident but was represented in spirit by his parents, widow and brother (L-R, above) at Thursday’s launch. This year, all book proceeds will be put towards building a leisure space for teens at the Hospital de Sant Joan de Deu.
Whew. That was a lot of “real” reporting work right there, regardless of whether or not it was translated properly (it probably wasn’t – our fact checker’s out sick today).
As a reward to ourselves, we’re putting up our out of office messages so we can sit back and enjoy that sassy soul patch of Dah-veed’s for the next 30 minutes without interruption. We highly recommend you do the same, Kickettes.
There was a pool party at Eric Abidal’s house over the weekend, but we rescinded our RSVP after learning clothing was not optional.
Weekend went well for the rest of our Kickette Army we hope?

This lady is employing a classic Kickette distraction technique. Watch and learn, everybody, as she casually points to a random object in the middle distance, waits until her mark (in this case, the deliciously dressed and entirely unsuspecting Raul) is sufficiently engaged and then pounces, hurling him to the ground and doing what we all would, given this level of access.
Poor baby. He doesn’t stand a chance.
