*Give me something cheap and cheerful*

*
So, where do i start? Here am i, trying to think straight, blog and organize my day, all at once.
.
The day is dawning. Apparently, at my parents place, i recover my ninja power of becoming fully awake one minute before the alarm goes off.
.
i really, really want to go outside (despite the insane fog and the humid cold) and walk for an hour or two. Walk. My tattoo is still quite painfully crusty, so i don't even know if it is recommendable. It is recovering at a faster rate than i expected... maybe by tomorrow it will be fine. Hopefully.
.
Meanwhile, people awaken in the household. My younger brother is in the shower, and offered to make me coffee. Must suck to lose his bedroom (and computer) to me, every time i show up. Well, this was my bedroom growing up, so be it. He's a cool guy... he just makes a lot of bad choices, thats all. Sometimes i feel like the prodig
.
And yay, i have photoshop! What, you think i was gonna let you see any photos without editing?
.
Apparently, music runs in our blood. Have never seen such a family to be ALWAYS listening to something, even if each and every one of us has a different taste. Explains a lot.
.
Now back to something cheap and cheerful.

So much catching up on sleep for my first week of vacation. i must have arrived here around 6 am yesterday. Ask me if i slept. No, i didn't.
.
Luckily, the weather is dry opposed to the usual horrid winter humidity. Aside the mist, obviously. And because there is no altitude here (near the coast), its warmer. i'm having a pleasant time, so far.
.
So, after a proper breakfast, i just unpacked and hanged out after what was probably one of the most uncomfortable bus rides in my life. Sucks not to be able to sit on my legs. Whatever, it's totally worth it.
.
Then lunch. Mom made a quick, simple meal: stew. But so good. i really need to exercise. i'm gonna get fat with all the yummy goodies around here. If there is one thing they are good at in the south of Brazil, that thing is food. Specially sweets. Oh, the torture.

.
This home has a strange schedule of its own. People here tend to sleep as much as possible (when possible), and to sleep as late as they can. My parents arrive late. My mother usually leaves home really late. As usual, i watch and adjust. i guess i'm good at that. Adjusting.
.
Oh yeah, vacation. i even sketched. Guess thats what happens when one has to keep off SuicideGirls for modesty's sake. Um hum, right.
.
By the time i finally dolled up (can hardly believe i wore, at last, the skirt i have been thinking of for a good while now - and made on Wednesday) and left the house, it was 5 pm. No big deal... i only had one place to go, and this is a small town.
.
Usually takes me a couple days to adjust to the fact its OK to walk alone at 9 pm and no big deal to ride a car with the windows down. Big town paranoia, much?
.
Well, i made it to my objective: THE DANCE FESTIVAL. According to the Guinness Book, the biggest in the whole world. Yay! And even though i was afraid there weren't gonna be anymore tickets, i scored 2 out of 3. Pity about the Dom Quixote ballet though. Really wanted to see the Dom Quixote Suites, performed by the Russian Bolshoi Ballet Solo Dancers. By the way, the only other Bolshoi school in the world is right here, in Joinville. So i get to watch:

The competitive jazz and ballet night (and i scored the last seat in the house, how lucky!)

The competitive tap and ballet night
Plus i also enrolled in two free workshops. One is this Saturday afternoon, on Tap Dance, and the other is next Friday, about lesions in dancing and how to avoid them. How appropriate.
.


Oh yeah, lets not forget the shopping:


Sure, i spent almost R$400 in dance gear, but it was totally worth it. i would probably spend 75% more if i had bought everything outside of the Feira da Sapatilha. Yay for plenty of dance shoes! Lets call it an investment. Hmmm, maybe i should get some more suplex stockings.

Pauses for another cup of coffee and a bowl of fruit with orange flower honey.
*

*
Basically, that was it. i got home, took photos and ate. I was in bed before midnight.
.
And now... ego shots!

i made this.
this hurt

i'll take photos of the city while i am around later. But don't be fooled by its lovely looks. This is the quintessential wicked little town.
.
i mean, try growing up here!
.
My mom is up. Time to rock it! Have a great weekend.
.
Over and out. Its a beautiful day outside.

Mood: hyper. Too much coffee, too early?
Now playing: Cheap and Cheerful - The Kills

"Cause love is just a dialogue
You can't survive on ice-cream
You got to see me dancing dog

It's alright (it's alright)
To be mean (to be mean)
It's alright (it's alright) To be mean (to be mean)

I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're boring baby when you're straight
I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're stupid baby when you're sane"

Current time: 10 am.

P.s.: i miss You. The only thing short of perfect is that You're not here. (L)
