Blogues

I found this really cool website over the holidays. I found it on this other really cute blog. They're both in Portuguese, a language and people I LOVE. I was in Portugal in 1992 (woof! really?) and stayed in youth hostels and lounged on the beach and swam further into the ocean than I ever have before. I remember the people being incredibly warm and inviting, with a great sense of humor. The only word I retained is "obrigado". But, I think that one is pretty important.

When I found x-blogue, I loved the concept and thought it would be fun to be a part of it. But I can't find a way to email them or contact them...I've looked through all of it and translated and even found an english "episode" of the blog...but, to no avail. So, I took it upon myself to do one anyway...and, until I can reach x-blogue, I invite you to send me yours, too.

Here's the premise, borrowed from i-blogue: Ideas communicate. Love happens. Lives are fulfilled. Tell me something. Anything. I used to be a porn star. I was just here. I got drunk twice yesterday. Write on your left forearm. Cover your eyes. Get painted, use markers, make stuff up. Only the I is constant, by the wrist. The rest is up to you.

Obrigado X-blogue!

*To add, when one is dealing with the internet, things move fast. And when one is dealing with a 9 hour time difference, well, things get done: I've already heard from x-blogue this morning and they've generously let us know if we want to send in our photos to them, send the picture to aulasdeviolino@lsi.pt. Your photo should be a minimum 1600 pixels of width.
