Time:12:22 pm
Current Mood:crappycrappy
Peace... I feel it´s all I need. Just peace and quiet. Make the world shut up. No more invitations. no more people in this endless list! Please! No matter how many names I put in here you´ll always come with more people god knows from where for me to add here in a rush! Make it stop! please!

I´m leaving my brain at work every day and at night I can´t even rest. I dream about work again and again! I hang up the phone and it rings again. I can´t take care of 3 events at the same time, not like this ones! It´s insanity! I was not made for pressure like this!

I was offered another job, or so I heard. Because I couldn´t even say yes or no. My boss said to her she could not have me and THEN he told me I was wanted else where. I´m so stuck here, so lost.

I think that´s one of the reasons I don´t object to kill myself hill up every weekend. Up there, work can´t find me.

Subject:Things that make a woman happy!
Time:03:23 pm
Current Mood:bouncybouncy

Well, I´m a woman and I´m happy!

Just went shopping to cheer me up because diet is not going as well as I would like. Got there, found a lovely shirt that I loved and even though I found it a bit expensive I decided to take 2 of the same shirt but in different colors.

Only when I had already taken a deep breath to pay for them I found out that they were ON SALE for nearly HALF the original price.

Oh, if only they had more colors.. I would have taken them all!

I knew I would have a lucky day today! I should have tried the lottery!

We went to Pedra Bonita again this sunday. I just can´t get enough of this view!
From up here, the city in indeed wonderful.
This the right view: Barra da Tijuca



The middle view: Pedra da Gávea



The left view: São Conrado



Little pause for breath.



Backs.... I don´t like seing me from behind, but this is not a bad shot.



A place by the sun.... paradise exists.



Conquering.... I´m still happy to be here!

The view is worth the sacrifice. 


Rê is a sister to me. She´s giving me strengh in these hard times. 

"Pedra Bonita" means Beautiful Stone. Thought the stone is really pretty, the view from up there is spectacular. Too bad we only had a cell phone to take pictures.

I could stay up there forever...

1- First of all, I did NOT read The DaVinci Code.

And I´m glad.

I think I had a great time by not knowing what would happen!

Now I can read it in peace. Period.

2- On some other news, I went trackking with some friends. You know, pretend I´m healthy, only I discovered I couldn´t leave my sedentary life behind. I couldn´t breath and now every muscle in my body hurts!
And that was only the smallest hill in the city (The first Sugar Loaf hill = Morro da Urca). It was me, two friends, my b/f and 2 little girls (one 5 and one 11). Of course the 5 year-old beat the hell out of me!

Just tell me if I´m stupid: I accepted to go to another track next week with them, a longer one.

I know I lost my sanity in the middle of that "jungle".

3- I have no problems with the "you help me, I help you" social behaviour, but there are limits. One very thin line between interest and abuse.

I have a massage therapist that is a really nice professional, but he´s put into his head that he would work on the Pan American Games. First of all, I can´t help him. All I could I did. I pointed him some steps, I presented him to the volunteers manager and everything else. But now every week he calls me to know when is the next event he can work. Today I was getting here and he call me to say he saw an interview of the general secretary on tv yesterday. He asked if we were all talking about it (like it never happened), and of course, asked about the next events and when we are gonna set our next appointment.

Well, i didn´t set any agreements with him that I would go there periodically. I´ll go there whenever *I* want, not acording to his wishes or needs. You just can´t call a client in the morning, not identify yourself and cut some cr*p about how is everything because you want to work.

If he didn´t change phone numbers every time he calls me I would block him for good.

Just one thing about massifying doctors attendance:

- Today I went to an eye clinic to check on my eyes, because I´ve been getting blind since I got this 8-hour job that makes me look at one same excel file with tiny letters. Head hurts, eyes hurt and I can´t see very well..

- Getting there there was a line to identify myself.

- After the line you had to way god knows how many minutes on some sofas till one of the 10 balcony people attended you to make your file.

- Go back to the sofas (with some other thousand people - most of them old) to wait till the pass your health plan card and ask you back to sign.

- Sign and go back to the sofas. Wait some more.

- Get your file and go to some other balcony at the second floor.

- The secretary tells you have to wait on some chair on the left side of the room and wait for somebody to call.

- You sit with some new thousand people and start to read a magazine and wait.

- Some girl calls your name and sits you on a machine. Check your eyes on the machine. Asks if I wear glasses (I say no).

- She tells me to go back outside to my chair (wich has been taken by some old lady and she also took the magazine I was reading).

- The same girl calls back some time later and leads you to the doctor (FINALLY a doctor - I was thinking he didn´t exist).

- He makes some quick tests, asks some quick questions, write you a notice for glasses and you leave. (I do have to defend him by saying he was very gentle charismatic and tried to leave me confortable).

And all that only took 50 minutes! *sarcasm*!

You think it´s over?!

- Some secretary from the clinic calls back and asks what name was written on my prescription.

- I look and it´s not mine!!!!!

- She asks me to go back there tomorrow to change it (like I had all the time in the world!).

Now, how in the world you put a Lina and a Nina one after the other for an appointment on a massed system like this?!

My dad, my stepmother and her niece are going to Paris today to spent 10 days.

And I´m still here...

Mother´s day is sunday and I won´t be able to see my mother because I´ll probably be working. Only my boss refused to let me start working last sunday on this event. Now I´m just thinking I don´t even want to go there any more....

The event yesterday was a disaster! Part of it is my fault, part not. I feel terrible! You take care of so many things at the same time and in the end, the details that count. I feel helpless, defeated.....

I also have a sore throat and my whole body aches, and still I came to work.

I want to go home, crawl in bed with a very warm blanket and sleep until it´s over.

Thank god it´s holiday again friday!

QUESTION:

Who is more wrong?

1- The girlfriend who went through her boyfriend´s msn logs?

OR

2- The boyfriend that had sex chats and cam with other people through those logs?
