Michelle, from Tiny Bubbles, passed a meme to me a week ago. Before I procrastinate even more, here are my answers.
What were you doing ten years ago?
Hum… let me think… I was studying (fazendo cursinho) to get in a public university (USP – University of São Paulo) for cinema – which didn’t happen. I was feeling like the least person in the world, because I hadn’t passed the first time, and I didn’t that year either. I was thinking that my high school sucked and that I had lost three years for nothing – well, at least I made great friends there. And that year I made my tattoo.
What were you doing one year ago?
The same thing that I’m doing now: blogging! The good news? I now have more readers then I had then, my English is better, I’m learning French and I write reviews to another site, but for free. No big changes… I am still needing a real job.
Five snacks you enjoy?
Difficult question… I think we have a different definition of a snack over here, but someone explained to me what snacks are in the US. So, according to that definition five snacks that I like are: popcorn, chocolate biscuits, Danette (of chocolate), pão de queijo and gominha (= bala de goma = jujuba = similar to the fruit gums of Haribo). Can I put salad as a snack?
Five songs you know all the lyrics to?
Just five? I know many! “Cotidiano” – Chico Buarque; “Yesterday” – Beatles; “I left my own devices” – Pet Shop Boys; “Never Tear us Apart” – INXS; “Faroeste Caboclo” – Legião Urbana.
Five things you would do if you were a millionaire?
First build myself a super powerful computer with a huge LCD and terabytes of space. Buy an apartment, a big apartment near the metro. Make a cinema graduate course in Paris. Travel to many countries (i have a list of places whose museums I would like to visit). Donate on-line: to blogs, organizations that treat animals, sites of artists, and other organizations.
Five things you like doing?
Watching films in the theater. Blogging (or you would think I’m a masochist, since I am not doing this for the money). Eating: at home, at restaurants, at friends’ homes… just don’t ask me to wash the dishes or cook. Visiting exhibitions of art, photography or history. Buy books: I’m compulsive… or I was… I’m trying to control myself.
Five things you would never wear again?
A tiny bikini (and I think that I just wore one when I was a little girl). A skirt called “balonê”. The “boca-de-sino” trousers (those models used in the 70’s), but I never used them. Clothes with big dots. Any clothes that makes me look fat or fatter.
Five favorite toys?
My palm, the computer, the plush alligator, the photo camera. I would like to put a LEGO and iPod in the list but I don’t have them.
And five blogs to pass this:
Gloomy Sunday, Miguel’s Weblog : 3.0, scribblingwoman, Martin Klasch and The Cartoonist. I don’t know if they are going to do it or not, and that’s why I didn’t pass to other blogs, but feel free to decline my invitation.
