New quiz: what decade fits your personality best?

1930’s

You are strong and determined and have what it takes to get through life’s storms. You are very helpful to those around you– be it your friends, your family, or even a neighbor in need. You are a great leader and strong-willed person, and take challenges as a way to better yourself…But you also have a deep sense of warmth and nurturing for those you care about. You are well-rounded and tough because you have to be. You aren’t a “diva” but rather a humble person with admirable character. With more hard-working, quality like you, this world would be a much better place. By being able to turn a little into a lot, you know how to make life enjoyable even if it’s just through the little things.

So, mine is in the 1930’s. Funny how surprising those quizzes can be. 🙂

Reading

I’m suddenly very hungry for reading, so I’m doing it (almost) all the time at the moment.

In Rio Claudia gave me one of her books that she had double, The Viscount Who Loved Me, by Julia Quinn, and since I’ve read that one I had to read other titles by the same author, about the same family. Really funny. And interesting too, since she tries to show other aspects of the Regency times.

After that I’ve started reading some Mangas as well, suggestions from Ester.

The Color of Earth is a beautiful story of love and blossoming passions, the relationship between mother and daughter and about the needs of the heart and of the body. Very sweet.

Pluto, on the other hand, is a very dark and philosophical story of a police investigator, also a robot, investigating the murders of “well-adjusted” robots in society. And he might be the next victim if he doesn’t hurry up in finding out who’s behind it all…

And let us not forget For You Alone, the second and final part of Persuasion written from the perspective of Captain Frederick Wentworth. Really well-written. And so very romantic… 🙂

Reading-Watching / Lendo-Vendo

It has been first realeased as a book and afterwards turned into a TV series. It’s a bit creepy, but also very compelling.

Foi primeiro lançado como livro e só depois virou série de televisão. É meio assustador, porém muito cativante.

One of the phrases that really caught me.

Uma das frases que me “cativou”.

Eu sou um monstro organizado.
Eu sou um monstro organizado.

Carro “novo” / “New” car

Depois de debatermos durante uns 2 meses sobre a possibilidade de comprar um carro novo, hoje finalmente o fizemos. O que me surpreendeu horrores, uma vez que tudo que envolve grana leva um certo tempo para acontecer com o meu marido.

After debating for about 2 months about the possibility of buying a new car, we finally bought one today. What really surprised me, since my hubby takes his time when money is involved.

É novamente um Hyundai, mas desta vez o modelo é um Matrix, mais pesado e mais potente. Com espaço suficiente para podermos viajar sem termos de fazer limonada de nossos limões. Desculpe, irmãs, por não termos comprado o carro quando vocês estavam por aqui. Teria sido um pouco mais confortável…

It’s again a Hyundai, but this time it’s a Matrix, heavier and with more power. It has enough space for us to travel without having to make lemonade out öf our lemons. Sorry, sisters, that we haven’t bought it while you were here. It would have been a little bit more comfortable…

Aqui algumas fotos. É uma pena que elas saiam tão pequenas…

Here a few pics. It’s just too bad they show as very little…
