Dear Paolini,

Zombies? REALLY?? If they next time they appear, they do so yelling "BRAAAAAINS!" I'm putting the book down. Mind you, I'm only halfway through Brisingr and so far I'm only interested in Roran's storyline. Super powerful and all doing Eragon is annoying. And now, ZOMBIES??

Not amused,



Dear Heroes writers

A few bulletpoints for you:

- Mohinder and Maya STILL $UCK! Especially stud Mohinder. Yikes!
- Nikki's evil twin >>> Nikki, even more so if that means NO MICAH WHATSOEVER THIS SEASON!
- Petrelli family still ROCKS!
- Love Mama Petrelli's superpower
- Love Peter and Claire
- Still love Hiro and Parkman
- Mr. Bennett is still TEH MAN! My favorite character EVER in this series




Dear Barney,

Please, allow yourself to become Robin's boyfriend. It would be DE-wait for it-lightful!


Debora *who LOVED the last HIMYM episode*

...has been very nice! Perhaps not as good as August, but nice nonetheless!

First weekend, we had JEDICON - our SW convention - and although in previous years it had seen better editions, on this one I got to see [ profile] hgranado, who came from London to visit, and [ profile] priwskywalker who also came, but from São Paulo. I think what annoyed me the most was that another person that wasn't me made the SW EU lecture, but...oh, well. :P They had an amazing customs exhibiton, though, including a life-sized speeder bike! :D

On that sunday I had lunch at my sister's apartment, with our mom and my boyfriend. [ profile] rjann sure enjoyed the PS3 "Force Unleashed" preview Igor - my sister's boyfriend - had! But not as much as the real game - more on that later! ;)

Last friday I saw "Mamma Mia!" It's sort of a silly movie, with a few dialogue sentences only meant to connect a whole bunch of Abba songs, but the music was contagious, we kept clapping and singing, and moving our feet to the rhythm of the music! One thing bugged me though. little spoiler ) I left the movie theater singing though.

This past weekend, we celebrated [ profile] nandaweasley's birthday! We went to Outback - LOVE this restaurant! - and we ate, and we talked A LOT! Lots to catch up on! Sunday I had to work, but it was, thankfully, a quiet shift.

So. About "Force Unleashed". NO, I haven't played it - yet. But [ profile] rjann has. Last night, while I was WORKING, he spent about 5 hours playing it - he told me the last, what, two or three hours, were spent trying to reach just one more level...than just one more level...and one more...LOL. XD At least now I can play with Mara! Yep, he unlocked her character! And, until he finishes the game - which should happen by the end of the week - I'll stand by my belief that, in the end, Mara Jade kills Starkiller. It's so obvious! Vader tries to betray Palpatine, whom in turn sends his apprentice, Mara, to kill Vader's. :) :P But, yeah, if you are wondering, it sure sounds like a GREAT game!

OH, before I go, one link, two countdowns, and one question!

Star Wars (and others) dolls!

TWO DAYS to the Brazillian IRON MAN DVD release! YAY!

Also TWO DAYS for Brisingir! Yes, the third installment on Paolini's saga - or should I say the SW/LOTR/HP mixed homage? XD

FIVE DAYS to a new HIMYM episode! AWESOME! And I have the gut feeling it's going to be LEGEN - wait for it - DARY! XD

At last, the question...I have a Tungsten E, but it's old, and I never really got very used to it - always forgot to charge it - and I was thinking about buying a smartphone. Thing is, I have a few programs - NOT DATA, or PIM - in there that I'd like to still use in my new smartphone. That plus everyone I know who owns a PDA has a Palm OS based one, and most of the medical programs I know are in that system - although a few come in Blackberry and WM OS. there any way to make a Palm OS PROGRAM work in another operating system?

Gotta go now... Let's see what I'll do this next few weekends ahead... ;)

If I thought Eragon had a *LOT* of LOTR in it with a few Star Wars hints here and there - like Obi-Brom Kenobi, copyright by [ profile] alphabet26 - Eldest *IS* STAR WARS.

Spoilers for Eldest under the cut! )

Now, when does book 3 of Inheritance comes out? ;) Will he continue with SW and LOTR, or will he use another fandom? ;) XD

And before I go:

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!!! :D

I hope next year goes better than this last one!

ETA: meme! )

First of all, belated thanks go to [ profile] julie_weasley and [ profile] priwskywalker for their Christmas cards. I was not too Christmas-ey this year, that's why I didn't send any cards. Sorry guys, I will try to be more excited next year.

I know I've been MIA this past few days, but first, it was Christmas, although a quiet - and thankfully also peaceful - one spend home with my mother and sister, and then, there was book reading.

Since there was a movie adaptation of Eragon going out this Christmas, I decided to buy the book and read it a few weeks ago. Midway through it I got bored by it, but eventually finished, saw the movie and bought book 2, Eldest.

The book is NOT OMGTHATWASAWESOME and it's NOT a total FAILURE either, it's just...ok. That probably means a lot, becase as [ profile] rjann always says, I either LOVE stuff or HATE them, and this was one of the few things that was simply ok. Yes, it's a fantasy book, and one with dragons, but there was a few things that annoyed me. Mainly, the fact that it feels to me as a copy of various other fandoms/stories/books/movies. Come on! It's like reading a LOTR fanfic! AND I have never read any of those famous dragons books, but I'm sure if any of you have - [ profile] starpiper you read some, didn't you? - you could point out similarities to those as well! Just read the following (incomplete, for sure) list and tell me if you agree with me or not!

Similarites between Eragon, LOTR and SW. Spoilers up to the middle of book 2, Eldest )

The second book is better than the first - at least so far - because *gasp* of Roran's side story. I love secondary characters! And his, Katrina's, and Carvahall's story are very interesting!

And the movie was enjoyable - they shortened Eragon and Brom's journey, which to me was the boring part with they going around in circles and solving nothing, and I liked what they did with spoiler inside ) but not so much what they did with Murtagh. And Arya is completely off character. But it's entertaining. :)

This weekend I took the last two exams I had to take - one was in another State, and I had to flew in and out of there, but it was a smooth trip. I need to check how well I did on those exams, but I'm having trouble catching up with you guys - 600+ entries to check! Just skimmed through it all, didn't actually read every single one of them or I would be still at it! XD

Oh, ane before I embarked on the plane, I bought "Eragon" to read on the plane. The beginning got me interested - so much I didn't want to study or sleep on saturday night, but to read instead - but let's see if it still keeps me interested throughout all the book.

I just finished watching the last BSG episode - yes, I know it aired on friday, but I was busy and away, I only just saw it. Let me say that I LOVE the fact that Lee and Kara's characters are back on track, and that the writers sure know how to make you care for a character even if you really hated him/her to begin with! :D They did it with Gaeta, and now again! Very nice episode - I missed Laura though!

And now, for a lack of better thing to do - actually, for the lack of WANTING to do anything else - I bring you MEMES!

England, silliness, terrorism, a xmas stocking and a personality test under the cut! )

PS: Do you guys know what "being finished with exams" mean? CATCH UP TIME! All those shows I haven't been watching, and all the other shows I want to catch up on even though I'm seasons behind, now I finally have the time to watch them! YAY! :D No Heroes tonight, though. :(
