Sorry for the month long hiatus!!

...and we still haven't resized all the pics from Brasil--so just sit tight. Our neighbors and their free internet have moved away, so access is a bit spotty right now. Here's a quick meme that I did to speed up the afternoon :)

We should get pics up by the end of the week. Oh, and we're running the Peachtree Road Race (biggest 10K in the US) on the 4th--wish us luck!


Six things I could live without, but really wouldn’t want to:

Six movies I’ve never seen before:

Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Soylent Green
Catch 22
National Velvet
It’s a Wonderful Life
Mask of Zorro

Six of my pet peeves:

Having to work 40 hours a week
The cost of gas
My Tupperware containers disappearing
Bland food
Being interrupted while reading
People knocking on the door when I’m in the bathroom

Six things I really love doing:

Drinking beer
Listening to music
Talking with my friends

Six things I was into as a kid:

Making up games
Climbing trees

Six things I was into as a teenager:

Going to Detroit Film Theater
Long walks
Playing in the sand dunes
Hanging at the beach
Waiting tables (yeah, I used to like working!)

here´s where we eat breakfast...

we weren´t lying--here´s Snoop and Pharrell at the Maze (see when the kid runs down the alley) which was filmed at our hostel. All the favela scenes are where we are staying--check the view. (not the palace thing, the place with the crazy broken tile floor at the beginning..)

Rio--even the poor have a good view

Wow--its not any surprise that we love Brasil. The amazing thing is that our hostel, in a favela (shanty town) no less, was written about in Newsweek International this week. Congrats to Bob and his family for running a fantastic hotel!!!

An article about our place in Rio de Janeiro--yeah, we´re staying in the same place as Snoop Dogg--we know what´s up ;)

crazy, huh? we´ll post pics as soon as we get home to our camera cord, that I decided to leave in Atlanta. Meanwhile, here´s a pic of the second most famous favela in Rio, (not the one we´re in--I have better pics of that!) This is Rocinho:

Rain SUCKS>.....
