The Lord of the RIngs

First of all, I have to say I'm REALLY looking forwrad to buying my own laptop, because this whole "sharing the computer" thing doesn't really work for me. Especially since the computer is in the living room and everything I want to do I'll do in my bedroom.

Well, back to the title of the post, boyfriend and I spent the whole day (and I really mean the whole day, 'cause we started, like, at 10:30 am and it finished at 11:30 pm) watching the extended edition of the Lord of the Rings. I loved it! Although I think Frodo and Sam are the dullest criatures ever created.
To be honest, the movies could be just about Aragorn and maybe Gandalf. I love the battles and the entire first movie. But I just can't stand Frodo, Sam and Gollum. Aff. They just keep going in circles and get nowhere. What's the point in watching it?
But I have to admit I like Merry, Pippin, Arwen... Well, let's just say it's enough to make me stand all that F&S boredom

Isn't it beautiful???

I never thought I'd like a day-long session of painting that much. We bought the paint yesterday, so in order to keep the pace, I wanted to paint it a.s.a.p. So... I spent the whole afternoon doing it, and I think it's pretty much finished. There are still a couple of dark spots where the wall was stained already.
I'm SO HAPPY!!! It's bright yellow, and I already love it! Boyfriend said I'm going to get tired of it, but I really don't care. When I get sick of the whole thing, I'll just find another nice color to put on my wall. This one is called Splendid Sun, and every time mother and sister go near my bedroom they say it looks like the light is on. LOVE IT!!

(A picture will come later, I haven't had the time to take one yet.)


This is my new (and first!!) blog banner. It's just temporary, but I like it anyway. When I get my desk organized and a good camera, I'll make a new one, and I'll show you what my "new" room actually looks like. (yey!!)

Night snack.

Me, Mother, Sister and Cousins went out for a snack tonight. We went to Yogoberry, a store that sells the most fantastic frozen yogurt. I love it! It's just frozen yogurt with toppings, but I think it's one of the most delicious things on earth. I love the bitterness of natural yogurt.

We went there after mother and I came back from the store where we bought paint to get my room painted.
We are going to do it tomorrow!! I love redecorating!! Especially considering I already got one new decoration item today. Oh, how I looked forward to this moment!! (I know it seems rellay silly, but it's true. My room has never been really mine, so I think now it's the first time I feel like it is...)
I'm just SO happy!!!

Christmas gifts.

OK, I'm not usually the type of person who gets totally excited about christmas time. But I have to say I got really nice gifts this year...

#1: From dad.
My dad gave me some of the most weird stuff I ever got, but this christmas he got me a really good one. He gave me a Swiss Card. It's so nice!

Actually I had told him about this a few weeks before christmas. A friend of a friend showed me hers and I was very excited about it. My dad has a big one pretty much like this:

And I was always fascinated by the amount of cool stuff he would be able to do with it. So I'm pretty excited about my smaller version of it.

#2: From Boyfriend.

There's this great blog written by a friend of his that draws the coolest comics about god, Adam, Eve and a bunch of other characters:

The blog is now so popular he decided to make different products from the characters. The first one is God.

It's all sold out, but i suppose there are a few advantages in knowing the author... I was kinda planning to buy one next year, but Boyfrined gave it to me today!! (Yep, we actually had to wait until today to exchange gifts, cause I spent Christmas at dad's.)

#3: From Stepfather.

Actually I chose this gift myself, but I suppose it still counts... He gave me "The Age of Extremes: The Short Twentieth Century, 1914-1991", by Eric Hobsbawn.

I have been wanting to read this for a long time, but I never got the courage to spend the money... (I usually don't like to spend money unless I am sure about what I'm going to spend it on) I tried borrowing it from the college library once, but it just didn't work for me. Some books I need to have for myself...

#4: From Mother.

This one was also chosen beforehand and I had also been meaning to buy it for a while.
There's a store in Brasil that sells the funniest stuff. It sells all kinds of fun, modern, cool stuff, and it sells decoration items, clothes, accessories, almost anything. I love their stuff, and had been meaning to get one of their picture frames for a long time. So today we had this hanging on the wall:

I still haven't filled all the pockets yet, but I'll take care of it and then I'll post a picture of the whole thing when it's ready. I'm so excited about it! It'll look gorgeous hanging beside my bed!!

(It's actually quite an achievement to have it already on the wall, considering things usually lay around for months before being set in their proper places in this house. I so look forward to having my own place. Sometimes...)

#5 and 6: From Sister and Grandma.

I don't really have pictures of their gifts, but sister gave me a really cute white skirt (which I will obviously wear for New Year's, I suppose) and grandma gave a great b&w polka dot bikini (which I obviously loved. B&W AND polka dots?? gotta love it!!)
