Well, I tried to buy...

but after FOUR hours of download tries, iTunes 7.0 finally made it through the notoriously unstable Brazilian telephone lines. And then I found out that my purchase order didn't go through. And now iTunes doesn't want to load the TV shows...so maybe that's a sign. Okay, God, I'll not be watching any television tonight!

My mother, from the last comment on the library art post, is insinuating that I am an art thief...that a meager $150 fine would be tempting enough for me not to return a library book. Honestly, no matter how cool the book, I couldn't do it! This is the person who can't keep a lie for more than a day or so without breaking out into a rash. I am compelled to tell the truth. I once found a lovely Patagonia fleece jacket at camp in Colorado. I knew who it had belonged to, but she'd already gone home...and tempted as I was to keep it, my conscience tore my brain to shreds until I found her address and mailed the fleece back to its rightful owner...oh, beautiful red fleece, I still remember our fleeting days together!

On another note, I'm extremely thrilled that Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie" is becoming popular around here. And the Pussycat Dolls...I think I'm going to dance around in my livingroom!

Yay Shakira!

What's with the total prejudice against musica en español in Brasil? With so much great music on that continent I'm really surprised there isn't more intercâmbio in both directions.
