...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... ;)

So, let's see what I did this week - did I do everything I planned to? Er, NO! :P But it was a good week! :D

On sunday, I went to the movies, but King Fu Panda was sold out! :(

Tuesday I went to the movies, but I ended up watching "What Happens in Vegas" with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher instead of "Prince Caspian". Cute movie, funny, and my friend kept telling me how Ashton was hot, but everytime she told me that, I thought "But, OMG, he is KELSO!" Yep, "That 70s show" fan here! :P

Wednesday night I worked on one of my extra shifts outside the medical residence.

Thursday was my second attempt to watch "Prince Caspian". Met [ profile] weirdgirlie, had some Pizza Hut - gotta love their Pepperone! :P - and then...guess what we watched at the movies? Ta, da, taranan...yes, IRON MAN! RDJ FTW! XD

I sooooo wanna a Iron Man 2 or an Avenger movie, like, RIGHT NOW, so I can actually watch ANOTHER movie! :D Though..."The Dark Knight" would also do the trick - hell, it would be AWESOME! Is it July 14th yet???

And last night I finally managed to watch "Kung Fu Panda". It's a cute movie, perhaps one of the best Dreamworks 3D movies...but I still prefer Pixar! :P

This week! "Hancock" tomorrow - or perhaps the new Shialayman movie - and, again, I will try and watch "Prince Caspian" during the week - though now we don't have the subtitle version showing in theaters anymore, just the dubbed portuguese version.

One last thing before I go, though!

Got this from [ profile] alphabet26

Despite a set back this week in one of my projects, I have two GREAT news!

#1 I'm on VACATION this month! I sure need the rest! I'm still doing my extra shifts because they aren't connected to my medical resident...and my boyfriend will be working... One can't have it all, I guess. But it's some! :)

#2 AND I finally, FINALLY and OFFICIALLY am OFF SUNDAYS DAYS SHIFTS! Still doing the nights, but I'm OFF THE DAYS!!! YAY!

Btw, last night I went to the movies to watch WAAAAAAALL-E! So cute! And it sure sends an important message about how we are handling our one and only World.

Speaking of movies, last week I saw Get Smart and it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO funny! Hilarious, really! My boyfriend laughed so much and so hard a guy in front of us kept eyeing us annoyed! But I love Anne Hathaway, and I think Steve Carrell is incredibly funny - come on, you just have to look at his face and you'd want to start giggling! The effect is even greater when he is doing a comedy! Loved the uterus dialogue, btw! XD

So, plans for this week:

Tomorrow - OMG! I HAVE FREE SUNDAYS! YAY! - I plan to watch Kung Fu Panda with [ profile] rjann in the afternoon.

Monday is actually my last day at work before vacations, so, work is going to be done! XD

Tuesday - or Wednesday depending on one thing - I think I'm going to Barra to watch two movies at UCI NYCC. At 20h45 Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian and then, perhaps, at 23h45 Iron Man - yes, again! :P Perhaps followed - or preempted - by some Pizza Hut. Hum. I guess if anyone would like to make me company?? *cof[ profile] weirdgirliecof*

Let's see if I actually manage to make all this, shall we? ;P OH, I will also try to post later this week my TO DO list for the vacation!
I have work to do, but I so DO NOT want to! My head is aching. A LOT! This has been happening every other day for the past two or three weeks. UGH! And I slept almost 12 hours this past night, so...why do I feel so tired and have a headache? I have a nagging feeling it's my allergic sinusitis again...Can it be July already? I need my vacation already! Though I'm not going to travel anywhere...*snif* So want to!

At least this past sunday I didn't work during the day, after working 9 months straight every sunday day! YATTA!

I saw Hulk. It's definitely no Iron Man, but it's better than the other Hulk movie - well, duh! Also, I love Edward Norton, so, everytime he transformed into Hulk...I got bored. Liked the little nods to previous Hulk versions, though! And the last scene...AWESOME! You guys know what I'm talking about! ;)

As for BSG midseason finale...OMFG IS IT 2009 yet??? I have to say Lee and Tigh were my favorite characters this episode - which is quite a surprise, since I always hated Tigh and Lee began as a favorite of mine but have been quite a pain in the ass the last few seasons.

Also, also...My guess at who is the Last Cylon...SPOILERS )
Just a warning - Iron Man and Hulk casting spoilers ahead.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still more of a DC girl than a Marvel girl, but I do have to admit that Marvel is going about his superheroes team movie better than DC is.

Let's, for the purpose of this little essay, take this two team formations - both are just assumptions/suggestions made by me and not really canon-accurate:

Justice League: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Flash (and perhaps Ajax and/or Hawkgirl)

Avengers: Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor (wishful thinking: Spider-Man and/or Wolverine)

What is DC doing?

We had four Superman and four Batman movies in the 80s and 90s respectively. They had few qualities, but they also quite a few problems. Then, in the last few years, they decided to ressurect - or rather reinvent - this characters. We had Batman Begins which is an AWESOME Batman movie with a previously not so well know actor, Christian Bale, who had a lot of actor expertise. And we had Superman Returns, with Brandon Routh, who is hot but, frankly...not so good an actor, and unexperienced. *runs from the Brandon Fans Mob (TM)*

And now they want to do a Justice League movie with NEW actors in the roles of Superman and Batman, and with Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the rest of them UNINTRODUCED, without previous movies dedicated solely to them and their storyline set up.

Now, what is Marvel doing?

We had three X-Men movies. The first two were TOTALLY AWESOME and were responsible for the trend of Marvel - and why not say also DC? - superhero movies made to be blockbusters every other year. Then we had the three Spider-Man movies, which were also awesome.

Ok, we had two Fantastic Four and one Daredevil, movies that were not that great, and an Elektra movie I'm not even going to count - let's cross it together and throw it in the trash with Catwoman, shall we? - but we had great Marvel movies. And Hulk 2003...well, it had Eric Bana as an eyecandy, and that was it.

But, BUT! Now we have an AWESOME Iron Man movie, and a new Hulk movie coming out. Iron Man featured Robert Downey Jr, who I always thought was a GREAT actor - I LOVED him in Chaplin! I know he took some wrong steps in his personal life but now he put that behind and just made the GREATEST COMEBACK EVER! AND we have a new Hulk movie coming out, with Edward Norton, another GREAT actor, with great acting abilities - LOVED him in American History X!

Two great actors, perhaps not Big Names - and therefore with not so large a cache - but with great acting abilities. OMG, just to imagine Robert and Edward acting in the SAME movie, in the SAME screen...AND we would have Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury! I SO WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE! XD

Also, Marvel intends to make movies for the other Avengers members before an Avenger movie, setting up each one's storyline.

So, I'm sure they are going to go the same way and choose nice GOOD actors to do Captain America and Thor - heh, I personally would like to see someone like Dennis Quaid as Captain America, but that's wishful thinking. And yes, he is a nice actor, I like him. :P

Man, the day this Avengers movie comes out... I might fall to the Marvel side of the Force! :P

Yeah, I know I rambled...but I just wanted to put that to the paper, so to speak.

On three unrelated notes:



3) In 15 minutes it's going to be Valentines Day here in Brazil, so...[ profile] rjann I LOVE YOU! Let's see if I'm going to eat chocolate the day after tomorrow or not...Miss you, see you tomorrow! ;)

Just a quick stop to leave a review for Iron Man!

It was a great movie, I haven't seen such a great blockbuster in a while!

Granted, I don't know much about Iron Man, so, I don't have any nitpick his hardcore fans probably have to complain about, but I thought it had a great set up storyline, and great fighting scenes with AWESOME special effects - heck, even better than Superman Returns! *runs and hides*

I like Robert Downey Jr. - yes, he has made some poor real life choices and some huge mistakes with his life, but he is a great actor, and he was great in it. Even Gwyneth Paltrow, whom I usually loath, was OK! Loved the UST, btw! ;)

But there were two or three things that really blew me away in this movie!

Under the cut because IT CONTAINS SPOILERS! )

All in all, great fun, great movie...when is the next one?? ;p
