...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... ;)

After a lousy week, being sick and all, I had an AMAZING weekend!

On Saturday we had our annual Jedicon, and I had a blast! The fanfilms were great, the speeches and debates were AWESOME, and I had my EXTREME fangirl moment when only myself and another guy in the entire audience knew what exactly the Outbound Flight Project was - since the books were never translated to portuguese, AND the american versions are only occasionaly imported by our bookstores, only few of us have access to the EU - the speaker even joked that he knew we both would knew about it (he knows me and my EU obsession) and that we were the "nerdiest" in the audience because we knew what it was! Then I gave some info about the Dark Nest books, and Aaron Allston writing again about Wedge and the Rogues, and he said that I was their "official Del Rey representative" because I'm always up to date with everything EU books related - or I was, when I had the time for it, now I only get little bits about it. I was actually proud of being the "nerdiest"! Not ashamed! LOL! XD

But the best part were the costumes myself and my boyfriend wore! I have been planning my costume for almost two years, and last year, when I failed to make the helmet and almost went to the Jedicon without it, my boyfriend said that if I waited another year, he would accompany me, and, well...

I present you Leia as Bouush, and Chewbacca! )

And on Sunday, it was even better, if possible! The whole family got together - all my grandparents' sons and daughters, and their children! Well, except two uncles and one cousin. My mother and one of my cousins organized panels with old photographs of my grandparents, my aunts and uncles, and of ourselves as children...everybody brought great home made food (cakes and such) was so great, and fun! I got to catch up with my cousins, whom I rarely see nowadays! Family really is what really matters, you know?

My family! )

Today I didn't do much, except obsess over my missing camera - my boyfriend forgot it at Jedicon, but apparently one of our friends who organized the event has it with him - and at night we watched The Island, with two of my favorite hot and yummy actors: Sean Bean, Ewan McGregor and...Spoilers!! )

Oh, before I go, and because she said such nice things about me, I must plug Mollywobbles' LJ! I mean, Patricia's LJ! XD [ profile] patigwblack! She is our "official" Molly cosplayer, and much more friendly and reasonable than Ootp!Molly! Just don't accept any Snape video she sends your way, or you will be scarred for life! J/k, Pati! THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP WITH THE CAMERA! And all the chat last week, when I was down and sick at home! ;)

Off to bed! I go back to work tomorrow! *groans*
