...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... ;)

OK, it's 3:40 AM and I'm still up because I was watching the Brazillian Volleyball team, just like I did two nights ago. Read more... )

Oh, well, since I'm up, I have to review two movies I saw!

Last week, I saw Mummy 3, and I hated it. Tbe reason? Read more... )

And last night - well, actually, since today it's already thursday, the night before - I saw Clone Wars at a premiere. And I hated it, mostly because it's a kids movie. Read more... ) At least it was nice seeing old friends from CJRJ that I haven't met in a long while!

Ok, gotta try to sleep at least for a couple of hours before I go to work. *sigh*

I wrote this sunday night monday morning at 3AM but LJ has NOT let me post it since then! *fumes*,

Guys, I'm back! Actually, I've been back for a few days, but had no time to post whatsoever trying to catch up with my friends and family, and also making for the lost time with my boyfriend! ;P

Anyway, Celebration IV was every bit what I was expecting and more! The panels, the signings, the lines, the shops, the thrill! It was AWESOME! I even had a piece of cake to celebrate the Star Wars 30 years! :D With 3PO on top of it!

New York quite surprised me, though. I didn't know what to expect and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Times Square was my favorite place in NY - and, obviously, I took an "YATTA!" picture there! ;) XD

I have tons of stuff to tell you guys, a very big and LONG retelling of my adventures at NY and at CIV, but it's quite late now - that's what happens when one tries to catch up with her flist after almost 3 weeks! I went through the last 700 entries up until May 21st - and I couldn't go any further because, apparently, back-reading my LJ flist stops at 700 entries!

Anyway, back to CIV...I have many many MANY pics to sort through - almost 900, but most of them are out of focus - no matter how close I was to the stage, it was never close enough. I just want to show you guys one picture of it - actually, two three four and one CIV related pic! - a pic from NY, and a few from the Warner Bros Studio Deluxe Tour I took! :D

NY picture - Times Square )

CIV pictures - and a CIV related picture )

WB studio tour pictures )

And now, the only down point in my whole vacation - and on the second to last day, before going to WB, I sprained my ankle! It hurted like hell and it's still swollen!

I know what happens in Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice - SPOILERS FOR THAT BOOK UNDER THE CUT! )

Geez, I don't remember a time when it took me so long to update here!

Yes, I still owe you a BSG season finale LONG reaction-post.

Yes, I've been watching Heroes and LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT - the Petrellis RULE! Although in the last episode I think Peter was dumb to go to that plaza, and Mama Petrelli kinda scared me

Yes, I've been on vacation since the the begin of the month, but have mostly stayed home.

But all that is NOTHING compared to what news I bring you! NOTHING!


Yep, you heard - er, read - me right!


Actually, first I'm going to New York, THEN I'm going to Los Angeles and CELEBRATION IV!

Anyone from my flist wants to meet up while I'm over at the USA? For the FIRST TIME in my life?
