Probably not.

BEWARE! Long fangirly ramble ahead. It will probably not make sense. And I will probably not even use commas.

I watched it for the third time yesterday and it was just as awesome. My mom and brother came too and they loved it! Mom came back home saying how awesome RDJ is and that he is hilarious, how HOT Chris Evans has become since the first time we saw him on screen on Cellular, that the Cap really shows his talent in playing a variety of characters, that Mark Ruffalo is the best Hulk so far, that he is to cute, that Thor looks like Brad Pitt except better, and that the 'arrow shooting guy' is really cool and that DC needs to learn how to make movies because she wants a Justice League film to top Avengers and I said 'no way that's gonna happen, mom'. We went back discussing why DC movies usually fail at box office and Marvel ones break it. Now she wants to watch Thor and Captain America.

Isn't it awesome to come from a family of geeks? Sure, mom isn't as fangirly as I am (that is probably impossible), but she does like the prettiness. Her obsession is Johnny Depp and she has seen every single movie he has ever made lots of times and owns most of them.

All in all, it was a pretty good Mother's Day, even though she actually had to pay for my brother's ticket, lol. And she also had to cook for us instead of the other way arround. And she got no presents because we are all totally broke. But we were happy and had fun. That's what matters.

Oh, and my sister's new boyfy invited us to go watch a movie on IMAX one of these days. Exciting!

My holiday was extremely boring. I just stayed home without my laptop, all the time trying to stay online on my phone. Stupid service was intermitent at best most of the time.

New year finally officially started in Brazil. In here we have a saying that the year only starts after Carnaval. Classes will start on Saturday. Relief! Finally I'll have something to do!

My boredom was the trigger for me to do something that I've been wanting to for a long time. I've planned it since last year, but money has been short. The fact that my sister is now working in a department store does not help. At all. And she is evil enough to tell me all the sales, special days with insane discounts and new products that arrive. Damn her!

On Monday they held a sale and my sister said they would have 10 Samsung LCD TVs (and only 10) for a price that made me want to scream in frustration. She said that she could reserve one for me if I wanted and that the sale would help her a LOT with reaching her quota. Then my mom decided to be evil and offered to buy it in her credit card and that I only had to start paying in July when I could, if I could. Damn her for being such an amazing mom! I'll try very hard to pay her back if I manage to fill my day off with extra classes.

And now she just called saying my sister said my TV and DVD player has arrived at the store and that she is going to pick them up and also bring me lunch! Awesome mom or what?

Now I'll have something to do.

I wanted something to cheer me up so I started browsing through my pics and found these. They are not so recent and are from the day I went with my sister to the city of Itu, a city famous for making everything big. They are quite fun. Also, a couple of pics of Gabriel.

I think I finished the first draft of Time of Redemptiom. How did that happen? We didn't even have the first check in yet. Hell, the sign ups for the [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang are still going! How did I manage this?

15489 / 15000

Now I'll just need to go back and start editting. I'll do that next week since this week I have training to do in São Paulo for the new teaching job.

In more good news, my sis may have found a great paying job in a mall in São Paulo. Just like that. She was on vacations in her friend's appartment and bam. She starts on Thursday. She doesn't even have clothes for staying, or even a place to stay. But, you know, MONEY! She also send out a few CVs around the area and talked to a friend that is an interpreter. OMG! Maybe I'll get a job too!

The bad news are I've never had so many things to pay and so little money. I own the bank more than ever in my life, all thanks to the Christmas shopping and next year I'll have more things to pay like uni and transport to uni. The good news is that rent is going to have a negative raise. Which means it's going to get lower. I still need to hear from the landlord to see what he's going to do, but having no raise is already BIG, I'm not picky.

Other bad news is that my sister got fired for no reason whatsoever. She wasn't even a registered worker at the school and I'm still to see if they are going to pay her rights because of that. They simply, out of the blue, fired her. No reason given, nothing... The good news is that my mom spoke to our former landlord, who knows a LOT of people in the city and he's going to arrange a legal sue totally free of charge. My mom also went to the ministry of work and the judge was bafled to hear that a big school like Objetivo (one of the biggest private school franchises in the country) has unregitered workers. BIG FISH for them, so the school is probably going to have some surprise visit from them as well. All in all, sweet, sweet revenge is going to come and let's hope my sis can receive her rights in the end of all this.

Also, today lottery is going to pay the biggest prize yet and I still have to play. I can see how I'm going to regret leaving it for the last day. The lines yesterday were going around the block. I don't really need the full prize, for so many zeroes leave my head spinning. Half percent of that is more than enough to settle not only my life, but also my family's. Can you imagine having $120,000,000.00 in your bank account? I can't. But then I'll be able to go to any con my heart desires and finally meet JF. I'll probably be able to fund a whole new season of SGA and hire my own writers, which will be all the whumpers I know of. Yes, this is what I'm going to do if I win this lottery. xD

So my sister and my brother went yesterday to take the pics. They started at 11pm and got home after 2am. My mom said it was very beautiful. They took period pictures about the war for a magazine called Fashion Magazine and it'll be out on the second edition of September (around the third week). I can't wait to see it!!!

My sis and bro will be doing their first official photograph section today, for real money this time!!! Yay! It's for some British magazine, but I don't know the name.

Well, a bit of good news in this sad day. My brother is joining my sis. He's going to São Paulo tomorrow to take pictures too. There's an incredible lack of male models out there and he's got an excellent chance, along with my sis, because of our Japanese ancestry. We're a mixed family with Japanese, Italian and Portuguese and there's isn't too many of this kind of exotic beauty, lol. We're just a typical mixed Brazilian family, hehe.

Also, I can hardly breathe because of this horrible cold. I woke up half a dozen times at night and slept poorly. I was simply suffocating and I took medication before going to bed.

My sis left me a message on Orkut, saying that she arrived in the morning yesterday, hadn't slept and went straight to the class. She said she was going to sleep only at 11 pm that day *eek*. She said that Rio is really beautiful and Copacabana is wonderful, but you have to pay even to go to the bathroom at the beach. The place she's staying is nice and simple. I can't wait to hear more of the loads of stuff she's doing there!

I have no idea what I'm allergic to. I had coke a couple of times this week and had a very mild reaction, which I'll ignore from now on. On the other hand, I've been having strong allergic reactions every night to something unknown. Every night, like clock work. It can't be food, because I have been changing it every day to try to find out the culprit. I even tried not brushing my teeth to see if it was it. I don't think it was. Tonight I'll try to sleep with a different pajamas to see if there's any change. I hate my body! Even more so today, because I have a TERRIBLE sore throat. It hurts every time I even think about swallowing. Right when I have to go back to teaching.

I went to see X-Files yesterday. I really liked it. Happy to see an old fashioned Fox Mulder and Dana Scully adventure. Besides, SPOILER )

My sister leaves tonight to Copacabana. She's so excited! My brother left yesterday to spend a few days at a friend's house in São Paulo, which means my mom will be alone with Gabriel for a couple of weeks. She already called me to go to grandma's next week.

I listened to the Doctor Who Proms and really loved it. That little episode with David Tennant was a lot of fun. I also watched The Making of Me with John Barrowman and found it very interesting. It's certainly worth more research on the female's side. And I have female hands, YAY!

I'll go be miserable and sick now.
