I HAVE A NEW MONITOR!!! YAY!!!





It's so beautiful and the image is perfect in it!!! It's a Samsung T190 and I'm in love with it *g*. It was about time to retire my old CRT *pets it*.

Hubby installed it in his computer at first because we need to make an upgrade on mine so it will be able to enjoy the full potential of the new monitor. You know, change motherboard, CPU, memories and video card. I guess it's going to be kinda expensive.

Well, this week isn't entirely perfect because I got hubby's flu. Feeling like crap today *sighs*. At least I'll be seeing things prettier in my new shining monitor *g*.

Kinda lazy lately, even to write here *is ashamed*. I will use some bullets *g*.

• Last week I made a small surgery, a cauterization in fact, to get rid of some wars (fingers and face). I'm recovering well. Last year it was worse (had big holes in my fingers for weeks). This time no holes at all.

• Going back to English classes next month. Me, hubby, sister and niece. It's gonna be amazing :)))))).

• All my personal web sites vanished from T35 (Pedra Sobre Pedra, Renata Sorrah, Roxette, my portal), even the one with all my layouts (well, kinda saw that coming). Don't know yet if I'm going to host them again (such a hard work). So, to find all my layouts, just search through my memories or take a look at the comm [livejournal.com profile] layouts_for_fun.

• Reccing a great fic I just started reading. Go check On The Right Path by [livejournal.com profile] sawsha12. It's really good ;-).

• Yesterday I watched Supernatural (episode Criss Angel Is A Douchebag) with hubby and tonight we will watch Lost and Bones. Kinda late, but we're trying to catch up ;-).

• I also have to catch up with AtS comics. Didn't read the last issue yet.

• Read that the brilliant director Kim Manners passed away. He worked in Supernatural and X-Files. May he rest in peace. His work will never be forgotten.

• Just noticed something really weird. I was going to use one of my userpics in this post and I saw that it was replaced by another one that it's not mine!!! Never saw THIS USERPIC before and it's in my userpics list!!! Is LJ messing around with us?

I wanna say THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH to all those who congratulated me for my birthday!!! You are all so sweet and kind!!! Reading my f-list and e-mails today put a big smile on my face and I'm sure this is one of the best birthdays I'm having since ever!!! I love you, guys!!!

And [livejournal.com profile] xenodike, your v-gift is absolutely lovely!!! Thank you!!!

:))))))))))
I need some chocolate!!! I have one paçoca (peanut candy) and a half. Do you wanna trade? Yeah, it's "that" time of month again *sighs*.

And hubby and I watched X-Files Season 3 yesterday night, including that episode with cockroaches. I really don't like cockroaches, they make me nervous *shivers*. At least we don't have those at home... But, on the other hand, we have mosquitoes, a lot of them. Hubby even bought an electric racquet to deal with them. He has so much fun zapping those annoying flying bugs.
• Loving my new life as a wife. Being married is so good ;-). About babies, maybe in 3 years.

• Earthquake here in Brazil? And it was a 5.2 one. That's new. It seems some regions of my town felt the tremors. My hubby and I felt nothing.

• Oh, about that priest who floated off under hundreds of helium party balloons? What a crazy idea. And he didn't even know how to use the GPS device he had with him. He is still missing.

• Watched Torchwood season finale. And I cried.

• Hubby is downloading Bones new episode, so I hope to watch it soon *g*.

• Can't wait for Supernatural!!!

• I have lots and lots of comments to answer. I've being really lazy lately, sorry.

• Tried to buy the JM's Like a Waterfall album on James Marsters Live web site, but it seems they work with Worldpay only. So, I can't use my International Credit Card? I'm confused.

• I miss making graphics. Maybe I should subscribe to [livejournal.com profile] spring_spangel. Or maybe not *ponders*.

• Have lots of work waiting for me. Bye ;-).

Back to work after 4 days of holiday due to Carnival. I don't like the frisson of Carnival, so I spent almost all the holiday at home.

- I finally watched Torchwood - episode Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. James was wonderful and his interaction with the TW team was awesome, especially with Jack. I nearly combusted seeing those Jack/John scenes, hehe.

- Also watched the season premiere of Lost (gasp) and Supernatural (well, it seems Ruby isn't that bad after all). Oh, and I had to watch Smallville, episode Persona to see James performance ;-). James always makes everything more interesting.

- We had the visit of my fiance's mother during all the holiday. Everything went all right and she's back to her town.

- And my wedding is in 4 weeks and 2 days!!! We have practically everything set up, with just some few details to arrange yet. I am so nervous.

Here I am working on a sunny (oh well, not that sunny) Saturday *sighs*. Not the best way to start a new year.

Anyway, I want to change some of my icons, but I'm a bit lazy to make some. Any suggestions of places where to find great icons? It's not necessary to be only fanish icons, okay?

And I'm trying to answer the comments... Working on it...

We have an extended holiday going on here and tomorrow I'm going to the beach with [livejournal.com profile] nighttechno (about 100 kilometers from here).

You know, we need some rest from all the wedding craziness. The bad thing is that the weather is not helping... is too cold. So I hope to find some heat there. We'll be back on Sunday night.

In the other news, I've read about James' new role and I am both excited and apprehensive about this. I know Dragon Ball Z will be a movie with a big budget, but it can turn into a great failure if they don't do it right. So... I wish good luck to James. I really hope he can get a good exposure with this movie and get great roles after that.

Have a nice weekend flist!!!

I'm home right now. My boss sent me home because I've got conjunctivitis. My right eye is watering, red, itching and swollen. And I feel like if I have sand in it. At least I still have my left eye.

So, I have an appointment with an ophthalmologist in an hour.

*sighs*

Acabei de chegar em casa depois de um curso de 16 horas na Petrobrás (começou ontem cedo). Ô povo pra gostar de um treinamento. E detalhe, teve provinha no final e se não tirar acima de 70 tem que fazer o curso tudo de novo.

Mas o legal é que teve coffee break de manhã e de tarde e no almoço de hoje teve sorvete de flocos de sobremesa. Adoro sorvete de flocos, hehehe.

Afe, tô com as costas estouradas...

We're having an event about workplace safety during this week at my work with lectures, plays and workshops.

At the end of each day, they have been raffling some goodies like t-shirts, basketball balls and... CARICATURES!!!. Yeah, that's it. A very talented caricaturist spends about an hour every day drawning those people who won the right to be drawn.

And today was my day, hehehe. It was a very interesting experience...

Do you want to take a look at my caricature? )

You know how it works: caricatures are either a portrait that exaggerates or distorts some features of a person. So, don't worry, my head isn't that big, lol.
I should be at the gym, but it's too cold and I'm too tired. Nah, no gym for me today... At least, I have a little time to post here. So, I have some news...


- About the new job

I have lots of things to learn, but I'm very optimistic. My new co-workers are very kind and I guess it won't be hard to socialize with them.

But I'm feeling kinda exhausted these days trying to adjust to the new rhythm, so when I get home, I usually want to eat, to take a shower and go to sleep. Sometimes I read quickly my flist, but I barely have time to comment. Consequently, I have more than two hundred e-mails to answer and I can't find strength to do it *sighs*.

The good thing is they don't block the internet. So I can see my personal e-mails and surf a little. I just don't feel confident enough to surf through LJ yet. It's better to take things slow in the beginning.


- About the wedding arrangements

We still don't have a church for the wedding. We visited two churches, but they don't have the date we had planned available. Maybe we will have to make the wedding in another date.


- Fics

[livejournal.com profile] girlpire updated Friday, YAY!!! Going to try to read at least a few paragraphs before going to sleep *g*.

Today was the last day in my current/former job. I cried a lot. My co-workers were so sweet with me, everybody wishing me well and good luck in the new job. God, I am so sentimental *sniffles*.

Now I'm going to rest during the weekend, watch The Simpsons at the movies and Tuesday I will start in my new job. I get nervous just thinking about it. But it's normal, I am kinda insecure. Well, let's see what happens ;-).

Well, here I am trying to post at least once a week ;-).

- I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to those people who congratulated me for my birthday. It wasn't one of my best birthdays ever (it took half a day yesterday to my dad to recall it was my birthday and we live at the same house!!!) but I have faith next year I will have a better one. At least I have [livejournal.com profile] nighttechno in my life who does everything he can to make me happy. LOVE YOU, BABE!!!

- Do you remember I said I had gone to a job interview for a better job? WELL, I GOT THE JOB!!! I AM GOING TO WORK IN A PROJECT AT PETROBRAS!!! IT IS MORE THAN AWESOME, IUHUUUUUUUU!!! The salary will be much better too ;-). I will have to stay at my current job until August, 17th. They want my help to choose someone to my place.

- Still no answer from Orkut, so no news about my profile yet. I have read that they could take weeks to answer me. That sucks :(((((.

- Oh, so we have wank going around on LJ again *sighs*. This time it's more related to Harry Potter fandom, I saw. Still, not going to leave LJ, but as I said before, I have a Greatestjournal account with the same username. Feel free to add me there.

- Talking about journals, there's an interesting post teaching how to use Semagic to post simultaneously in several journals. Take a look HERE. Very useful.

Hope you are all fine!!!

Kisses

- Working, working, working. And I have been receiving new tasks. Well, guess my bosses think I can handle the work, 'cos that's a lot of responsibility.

- Bugger, Latin Fox aired Bones last Monday but the episode was dubbed in Portuguese. I WANT THE ORIGINAL AUDIO, DAMN FOX!!!

- My fiance and I have plans to marry on March or April of 2008 (it depends of when I will get my vacation). I have so much things to think about the wedding arrangements that it's scaring, gahhhhhhhhhhhh.

- I am addicted to the Brazilian version of American Idol. I'm watching it right now *g*.

- And I have no more interesting things to post now, hehehehe.

I'm posting quickly to say thanks so much to everybody who commented on my last post and congratulated me for my engagement. You are all so sweet *kisses all of you*. Going try to thank everyone of you personally as soon as possible ;-).

And I read about James going to make a guest appearance in the TV show Torchwood. Yay, go James!!! I know nothing about this show, I just found out it's a Dr Who spin-off. I hope to be able to watch the episode with James when it airs.

And I am still with that damn flu, do you believe it? Can't stand it anymore :(((((.

No internet at work anymore

I have been absent from here these last days. But, it's not my fault. The fact is since last Friday the company where I work decided to take some energetic measures and they blocked the Internet for all its workers in the country (I work at a national public bank). I can access only the intranet now. So now I can't surf through my flist, I can't post at livejournal and I can't even read my e-mails from Yahoo, Gmail and so on. The worst thing is that I need Internet to do some of my job, like when I need to do researches about programming, databases and related stuff. Yeah, that sucks big time.

Don't know if this situation will be permanent (it seems it will), so by now I can access Internet just when I get home. And sometimes I don't have much time to do it at home either (I have to go to gym on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays). Exceptionally today I'm home because I'm sick (I got a damn flu). And in the weekends I usually go out with [livejournal.com profile] nighttechno or go to his apartment. Apparently you will not see me here so often then.

But I am a rebel, you know, I can't stop reading fics. So I have been searching for some fics (I noticed some excellents ones these days around here) and I have been saving them to my pendrive. So, when I have nothing to do at work, at least I will keep reading fics. I will have to wait to leave feedback when I get home, but at least they can't take the porn from me.


----------------------------------------

Engagement

Stopping with the whining, I have something important to say... Yesterday we had our Valetine's Day here (we call it Lovers Days) and [livejournal.com profile] nighttechno took me to a restaurant to have a delicious dinner. There were even a violinist and a keyboardist playing love songs. Very romantic.

After we finished the dinner, he showed me a gorgeous ring and then HE PROPOSED ME!!! And I said YES!!! Now my bf is my fiance *squeeeeee* and I am so stupidly happy!!! He is the best man who could have appeared in my life and I am so proud to have him by my side. We have plans to get married next year and I'm so scarred because there's so much to plan, my life will change and I am so insecure (kinda fear what is new). But he is with me and I know we belong to each other *big smile*.


----------------------------------------

Nekkid Spike

Last Saturday I posted at comm [livejournal.com profile] nekid_spike_day with THIS MANIP and I got THIS BANNER for my participation. Yay, I loved it!!!


----------------------------------------

Buffy comics

I read Buffy Season 8 issue 4 and I'm not in the mood to make comments about it now. Maybe tomorrow.


----------------------------------------

Now I'm going to take some medicines and go to bed. My body aches, my throat hurts and my head is heavy :(((. Hope you all are fine.

*hugs flist*

My head is hurting like hell. As my entire body. It must be hangover...

I went to the a party at the beach (about 100 kilometers from here) to celebrate the anniversary of 20 years of the company. The lodging, food, drinks, everything were for free and there were games and so much fun, even with the cold weather and the rain. On Saturday night, a band came and they played until 3 a.m. I danced until I couldn't feel my legs anymore.

I usually don't drink alcohol enough to make me feel sick, but I guess I drank more than I could hold. Now I'm feeling the consequences. I took painkillers and coffee already and my head is still hurting. I'm going to be very quiet here at my desk and pray to not be disturbed *sighs*.

At least I'm not the only one feeling this way here today. Some of my co-workers aren't feeling okay as well.

And to make things worst, my period came and I'm with cramps, arghhhhhhhhhhh.

:((((((((
I spent the weekend in a country house with my bf and some of his co-workers and respective girlfriends/wives (a total of 12 people) about 30 kilometers from my town.

We had a great time eating great barbecue, playing cards (including poker), playing board games, chatting and having fun. I didn't have how to access Internet there, so I'm kinda late with answering my e-mails and comments. I'll try to put things in order as soon as possible, so if you're waiting for my answer, hold on ;-).

Oh, and I still have a friends list to catch up. Luckily, it's been a very calm day here at work so far. Hope it keeps this way.

And I watched Lost and Supernatural. I will comment the episodes, if I get the time and the mood...
