Hello earthlings! I'm back! I found a loophole in LJ that lets me post stuff! Yes, LJ is kinda blocking me out for unknown reasons. Oh how have you suffered without this enchanting being of light!

Aaanyway, I DID say I had some stories cooking up - well, actually they're a bit overdone - that I wanted to share with you. So I typed one that was kinda complete (meaning: raw and mangled). And it's in Portuguese, of course. It's called O Nevoeiro. Enjoy! Or not...

A little help from my friends

People, I've entered a photo contest to win a perfume aaand I'd like a little help from you. You see, the pic that gets more "likes" till Monday gets the prize. Since there are only a handful of pics, I think I've got a chance at winning this.

So, could you please hit "like" on this profile at Facebook (Perfume na Pele) and then "like" on my photo at http://me.lt/9PD2I? And I'd appreciate it if you summon your friends to do it as well. It'd help me a lot!

Thank you very very very much!

I'm sad, so utterly sad. Why in the world I started talking about politics? I just wanted to say to a colleague that Lula's leaving presidency with Senna's signature music. Then somehow we ended up talking about politics and I got yelled at and was basically labelled as a stupid and prejudiced elitist who is too narrow-minded to recognise Lula for the great and intelligent statesman that he is. He said Lula doesn't really need to be a learned man, since education is overrated and you can get by most jobs just by using common sense. That companies that hire people based on what's written on a diploma are prejudiced, since diplomas don't mean skill. Lots of CEOs don't have diplomas but have the smarts to run the business - and call in the specialists to think for you. Now, he didn't say whether hiring those specialists because they are specialists would be some kind of prejudice or not. Since, you know, they got diplomas.

He also said all the media is in a conspiracy against Lula, even though all politicians are corrupt and everyone should be scrutinised by the police.

He said the bolsa-família is the greatest accomplishment anyone ever did to this country, because misery is being eradicated and somehow somewhere people are having more opportunities in life. So the country's debt has increased! So what? The country is now so rich and growing fast because it left the 2008 crisis unscathed thanks to Meirelles's awesome economics super skills - and he's not economist, mind you! 

And he said he would send me articles by unknown people backing up his words. But hey, probably I don't know those people because I'm prejudiced and only know the white elite.

It is sad that I get sad with those things.

OMG! It's Xmas!
Mwahaha!

OMG! People, I actually remember my login and password to LJ! Considering I haven't checked in for such long time, it is a true miracle! Oh yeah, I saw LJ featuring on The Social Network and thought: "wait, I do have a LJ account! what was it again?" and realised how long I've been away from it!

So I was wondering whether to keep this journal, start one afresh in LJ just to vent my anger at the world, or maybe I should just stop it altogether. But the thing is I've got emotional ties to it - it was the very first blog I got, it was here that I learned how to code (yea, right) and where I learned what a blog was all about. And don't say that it's impossible for me to have emotional ties because I'm a sociopath! LJ seems to have changed somewhat, but is still very familiar: the layout, the friends page, the communities page. And it seems also like ages ago, before Wordpress came to life, before Facebook came to life, before Twitter...! Where in hell were we before Twitter? Oh, right: ICQ and MSN. I remember my ICQ number, but my password... Too many things to remember. That was before OpenID and the "one master key opens all accounts" that we've got today. Then again, we're a bit wary of the master key thing since identity theft is so common these days. It comes down to the OZ of Summer Wars: everyone connected and so close it is difficult to pull away from the screen. And we put so much of our lives online that identity theft hits us worse than actual robbery.

Anyway, I was talking about whether I should leave LJ since I don't come here anymore. Since my life is elsewhere at the moment. I've got 2 blogs besides this one. And blogging takes so much of my time. And there's so much work my time is waning. So I'll let this blog slumber once more.

Once I get my wits together, and that should happen by July of the next year - I'll figure out what to do with my life... and my many blogs.

Meanwhile, happy Holidays!!

I found some pieces of writing I did back then, when I actually wrote something instead of lazing around. I need to make a digital copy of them. I'm not doing this because they are outstandingly good, but because they are so very... weird! Very short, very descriptive, very pessimistic in nature. But they are not bad per se. I think.

MERRY X-MAS!!

 MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!!!

Why oh why am I always late at congratulating everyone on special days?!? Well, let's say it is to make those special days last longer! Yeah, let's keep on repeating that till everyone buys it.^^

But truly, I wish everyone a wonderful time with your families and friends this year and the next, and may 2010 be just the start of the best time of our lives!

Confession
Mwahaha!

 Hi everyone, my name is Mari and I'm an addict. I cannot think of a time when I wasn't hooked on that devilish gadget called Nintendo DS. I am not proud to say this, but I have been known to rave and laugh by myself under its influence. Yes, I lived in denial, escaping from reality into imagined worlds. I was an attorney, I had dogs and monsters to do my bidding, I ran for my life more than once, I was a spirit and an intern, I was a mighty king who ruled the world once, aiming for the stars with huge fundings in technology and culture...

How come culture means religion? I had to build temples and cathedrals! Me, a RATIONALIST über savvy king! Universities meant nothing to my citizens! Yes, without temples they became UNCIVILIZED! Then Mao would attack me because he said I was disgraceful in the eyes of erudite civilizations such as his! And that crazy Queen Isabela kept offering me the secret of Monarchy in exchange of my knowledge of Democracy! Hello! Democracy beats Monarchy! She kept harassing my cities until my armies completely ELIMINATED the Spanish from the world! And then they accuse ME of violence! So I had eliminated the Spanish - and the English, for that matter. SO WHAT?!? Then try to bring war on the Chinese so they can eat their words! Your very citizens VOTE AGAINST you! Man, I should have accepted Monarchy, then I could FORCE them to do it! I AM Napoleon! I am expansionist by nature! But nooo, I had built so many cathedrals by that time that my citizens became SOPHISTICATED and wouldn't agree to do anything that could make them bloody and messy. God! I had to build the United Nations! I DIDN'T want to build it! I wanted to build the SS Enterprise! I wanted to conquest some enemies' capital cities! But no, they SURRENDERED to me before that, they said they wanted to become part of my AWESOME civilization! That's no fun at all! Then I had all that money and no war to put it into! I had to apply it all back into the cities so my ungrateful people would thrive! AM I NOT MERCIFUL?

And that ends my confession. Where is my button for today's reunion?

 Here comes the sun! I am back after a long cold lonely winter! It feels like years since I've been here.

I have not read your posts yet, I won't read them all but I'll try to keep up with you. My life is slowly getting back to its tracks after running rampant for so long. Hopefully, I will get some time for myself in July, when all my courses finish and some curses are lifted. As for now, I've got 2 whole days to myself...! I intend to sleep sleep sleep and 3D 2D 4D and blog.

See you soon!

More goodness!!
