Morning Scribbles

Yahoo! wants to know if I've ever used a credit card on their site...to verify my supposedly incorrect sign-in information. Of course, I assume this is phishing and send it off to their security department. But then, a quick Google search turns up a host of info that makes me wonder if it wasn't a fake after all. But I didn't type my password incorrectly, because when I reloaded the browser, it opened to my inbox. I'm starting to dislike the Yahooligans...

Anyone know anything about this?

Yesterday we walked a sight more than I'm used to. Around Copacabana, around Ipanema for some really divine ice cream across from absurdly expensive haute couture stores with massive bodyguards and red carpet laid out on the cobblestone sidewalks...from Urca and Sugarloaf to the Rio Sul shopping mall where we inhaled burritos in a restaurant where all the windows were crooked and on the ceiling...

I can't believe Mom's only here until tomorrow night. That's kind of a depressing thought.

On a slightly up note, I should be heading off to São Paulo state right after Christmas to spend time with my friend Zé and her family. As much as I wanted to hang out on the million man + crowded beaches of Copa and Ipanema on New Year's Eve, watch the Black Eyed Peas and John Legend and a couple other artists perform for free before the midnight fireworks show...I think I'll give it all up for a little peace and quiet and the chance to NOT get macerated in the crowds. Or trampled. No matter how good the music might be...it just isn't worth it. :)

I hope you had a wonderful time with your mom - it sure sounds like it from the descriptions. Thanks for thinking of me in Santa. Our house is bright pink and has columns, directly in front of the Bar do Mineiro and the Anglican Church. I wonder if it was one of the ones you can across...

Have a good trip to SP. We are headed off to South Africa for a road trip and some much needed time away from Moz.

And...big news that I'm not putting on my blog just yet for multiple reasons...we are moving back to Rio in April!! Will you still be around?

beijos, boas festas.
