• I know I'm late, but I hope everyone had a great Easter.

  • Finally I made an upgrade on my computer!!! It's super fast now and the graphics are so pretty with the new video card \o/.

  • I went to Morretes last Saturday with hubby, sister, niece and my parents. Lots of nature, great views and some delicious food (called barreado, a typical dish from my state) in a historical small city. This time we traveled there by car, but I did this trip once by train. Very relaxing.

  • I feel pain in my right hand lately, especially in my fingers. To the point I have to use my left hand to handle the mouse. Hubby thinks I probably have tendinites by repetitive motions while using computers. Here we usually call it DORT or LER. Well, I'm taking some anti-inflammatory medications and trying not to misuse my right hand, but it's not easy. I take a lot of time just to type a few words *sighs*.

  • I have to catch up with my TV shows and I have to watch Piccolo Dragonball. Is it the movie good? Is James good in it?

*hugs you all*
• Here I am, working while my hubby is at home enjoying his extended holiday (it's Carnival around here). He will be back at work only on Thursday. At least I will have a day off tomorrow \o/. We're planning on making some barbecue to the lunch ^^.

• Oh, finally we caught up with Lost yesterday (we were 3 episodes behind). They managed to explain some things, but they also put a lot of more doubts in my head, like usually they do, hehe. I still have to catch up with SPN, Heroes and Bones.

• About comics, I read the AtS 17 issue. Oh, loved all the spangel bits... a lot *g*. Also read the BtVS 22 one. The writers made me sympathize with Kennedy. I didn't find her so annoying in the comics.

• Still can't make graphics because my computer has no monitor at the moment. Actually the monitor is on my hubby's computer. His monitor has been weird lately (changing colors to shades of pink and blinking).

• Regarding the Oscar... Yay for Kate Winslet!!! I so wanted her to win!!! And loved that Heath Ledger won as well. That was really heartbreaking.

Hope you all are okay ;-).

*hugs flist*
Ohhhh, I have new icons!!! They were made specially for me, yay!!! Thanks so much for the prezzies, Carla, you are such a sweetie ;-).

Take a look at them )

I would love to make something for you, but right now my computer at home (the one I use to make graphics, layouts etc) is dead *sniffs*.

Well, talking about my computer...

Some days ago I gave my video card to my sister (she had an onboard one) and I bought a new and better one along with a new HD and more memory to my PC. The memory is okay, the HD is working (after getting some headaches to make my computer to recognize it), but my computer doesn't recognize my video card and can't even finish the Windows XP installation because the screen goes all black before the installation conclusion. And it's been already 2 weeks since I gave my video card to my sis and 4 days trying to install the new one *cries*.

I have some graphics to finish to post this month, so it just depends of getting back my computer. Hopefully we will sort this out this weekend *crosses fingers*.

WOW, take a look at THIS and THIS. Can you believe they're fake? They seem so real!!!

I am so amazed to see how talented some people are with sculpts. And they are so lifelike that could fool some cops that tried to rescue one of them thinking it was a real baby. I certainly would be fooled myself.

You can see more of this brilliant work HERE and HERE.
Busy week at work, so it's really hard to find time to post here. And when I get home I find harder to seat at my computer, cos it's been so cold lately that I prefer to stay with hubby, warming myself *winks*.

Well, I'm using my lunch time to say HI, I'M ALIVE!!! Also, some news and considerations below :))).

- I watched Get Smart last weekend with hubby, sister and my niece, and we loved it!!! It's been a long time since I had so much fun watching a comedy. Would be great to have a sequel.

- I've been watching X-Files DVDs with hubby while we're waiting for the second movie. We're half way through Season 2. I miss this show so much.

- Also trying to follow AtS and BtVS comics. I have to read AtS 9 yet, but this week I have been so tired when I get home that I keep procrastinating the reading of it. There are good and bad things in the comics (I like AtS better) and while very kind friends keep posting links to download them, I will be able to read them. Thanks guys!!!

- I noticed some of my old S1 layouts (those with sidebar) have an alignment problem in Firefox 3. Don't know if I try to fix them or if I make S2 versions of them, still trying to decide the best way to go. Plus, LJ has been changing the Customize section lately and I'm afraid that some of my instructions to configure layouts don't apply anymore. I will have to make a post about how to install my layouts and put a link in all my old posts. God, it's going to take some time.

- Oh, and I've been answering some old comments. I can be late, but I always try to answer every single comment I get ;-).


ETA: I found out a way to fix my S1 Generator layouts with sidebar and now they work on Firefox 3, YAY!!! Hubby helped me :)))). Still editing the posts and it's going to take a while to fix all the codes.

Acabei de descobrir que aqui no Paraná a lei da meia-entrada diz que doadores de sangue têm o direito de pagar meia-entrada em cinemas, teatros, eventos artísticos e esportivos e assim por diante.

Meu marido e minha irmã são doadores. Eu já doei uma vez (passei mal na época e quase tiveram que injetar o sangue de volta em mim), mas parece que hoje em dia não tenho o peso mínimo necessário pra poder doar. Vou ter que ganhar uns quilos se quiser doar de novo, hehe.

O que mais me espanta é que essa lei vale desde de 2002 e como que eu nunca fiquei sabendo disso? Se divulgassem esse tipo de informação, com certeza haveria bem mais gente doando sangue. Well, meu marido disse que já vai tentar pagar meia quando formos ver o Agente 86. Afinal, com o preço absurdo que estão os ingressos, não dá pra dispensar um desconto desses.
I know some people like to live in large places, but THIS IS JUST RIDICULOUS!!! What a waste of money!!!

And I hated the architectonic project, by the way. Looks like a pile of containers.

- Aieeeee, I WANT THIS!!! I bet every Star Wars fan would love to have one of these :)))).

- Watched Lost last night... )

- Take a look at this post. You know, some things we should never forget, NEVER!!! I had tears in my eyes reading this post...

- And what a freezing day we're having here. I've been spending some minutes at the sun once in a while to get warm, brrrrrr.

Boss said we could go home earlier today, yay!!! The weekend starts now!!!


Oh, I went with hubby at the movies and we watched Iron Man. It was a really good movie, Robert Downey Jr. was superb. I highly recommend ;-).
- It's non-stop raining since yesterday night. It's so bad to go to work with all this raining. And apparently is going to last until Friday. Gah, this way we are all going to turn into frogs *sighs*.

- Watched Bones, Lost and Supernatural last weekend. It's so good to have TV shows to watch again!!! But I miss Heroes.

- I saw some X-Files 2 promo pics and... OMG, I am so excited!!! Can't wait to see the movie *is anxious*.

- My hubby was surfing when he found a very interesting online shop selling the most sorted gadgets. He found THIS PEN STAND there. Don't forget to watch the video demo, it's hilarious, lol!!!

I just found out that my orkut account was deleted because apparently I violated the terms of use. Bah, I never did anything wrong, I barely go there twice a month to read the comments, delete the spams and accept friends. I'm writing a very angry e-mail to them and I expect some answers.

Okay, we had the coldest night this year so far and it's Autumn yet.

Here in Curitiba (state of Parana, Brazil) we had 0ºC (see the proof) and sleet this morning and it snowed in the state of Santa Catarina (one state below mine).

For a tropical country is too much cold, brrrrrrrrrr.

*drinks some hot coffee*
Woa, I posted nothing this month so far. Kinda lazy lately and nothing interesting to report *sighs*. Well, let's start the month then...

- I modified the codes to S2 Smooth Sailing layouts I made, so now there's no need to host the CSS files anymore and they work on sponsored plus accounts. If someone's interested, the layouts I fixed using Smooth Sailing are these ones:

1- Spike - Hands of a poet, heart of a man
2- Angelus/William - Best friends, immortal lovers
3- David Boreanaz/James Marsters - Glamour
4- Spike/Angel - Embrace the Darkness

- Planning on making more Smooth Sailing layouts soon, 'cos, IMO, that's the best S2 style with all those free text boxes to personalize ;-).

- I also modified my old Flexible Squares layouts, so there's no need to host the CSS files as well and they work with sponsored plus accounts. If someone's interested, the layouts I fixed using Flexible Squares are these ones:

1- Spike/Angel - I can't take my mind off you
2- Spike/Angel - There is a hole in the world
3- Spike/Angel - For eternity
4- James Marsters - Civilized Man
5- Brokeback Mountain - Brokeback is all we got

- I finished all the S2 version to my old S1 Generator OMWF layouts. I will post them as soon as possible.

- I watched the two last episodes of Lost. I will try to find inspiration to write about them. Can't promise though.

And next I'm going to write in Portuguese, 'cos I guess only Brazilians will know what the hell I'm talking about...

- Finalmente "Páginas da Vida" terminou. Agora vou poder ficar mais tempo na academia sem ter que ir correndo pra casa gravar as cenas da Renata Sorrah, que nem eram tantas assim. Santo desperdício de talento.

- Aliás, ô final mais meia-boca. Deixaram pra resolver um monte de coisa no último capítulo e o interessante que era a disputa judicial pelas crianças foi feito mal e porcamente. Pelo menos a Reni teve um discurso maior do que os outros dois advogados. E ela tava arrasando naquele conjunto vermelho :))))).

- O que me lembra que eu tenho que atualizar meu site sobre ela. Nem galeria de fotos dela nessa novela do Maneco eu coloquei ainda no site. Pra ver como ando largada, hehe.

- Afe, esse BBB 7 tá me dando nos nervos. Agora botaram Flávia X Diego no paredão. Pode uma coisa dessas? O Alemão com certeza vai ficar e espero que pegue a liderança pra começar a botar ordem na casa. Pois é, eu disse que não ia acompanhar o BBB, mas já tô viciada de novo. Fazer o quê, né?

- Segunda-feira dá uma preguiça, né não? Ou sou só eu?

I was talking to a co-worker about her wedding plans and I've decided to help her out searching some web sites with wedding stuff. Then I found an interesting guide in the humour section of a web site which made us laugh our asses off.

I've read to her the Portuguese version. Then I surfed for a while and came across with an English version. So I'm posting here now because it's Friday and I'm in a spam mood *g*.

So, are your men doing right lately?

I'm so tired to deal with this vid conversion thing. It should be easier to extract the audio from a vid and put it in other vid. Gahhhhh, I need to sleep...
