...and we're back!

...e voltamos!

i’ve been a bad, bad, bad blogge, and a bad, bad friend. I temporarily abandoned everyone for a noble mission, though. Missions, actually.
Eu tenho sido uma péssima blogueira. E uma péssima amiga. Eu abandonei a todos temporariamente, mas foi por uma causa nobre. Na real, causas.

Only now i can tell you what i have been doing since November 2009.
Só agora eu posso contar para vocês o que tenho feito desde Novembro de 2009.

I made a rabbit movie ( which still needs re-editing). You can see me babbling about it here.
Eu fiz um filme de coelho ( que ainda precisa ser re-editado). Você pode me ver tagarelando sobre ele aqui.



I helped Qatar win the bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Eu ajudei o Qatar a ser escolhido para sediar a Copa do Mundo FIFA de 2022.



And I participated in a Clown Workshop ( thanks DFI! )



E participei de uma Oficina de Clown ( agradecida, DFI!)

Why I haven't posted anything lately

Because lately, I have been using pen and paper. And have been more blog reader than blog writer.

Because my work requires a lot of writing and by the time I get home, I don’t want to type.
Facebook and twitter have made me a 140-character writer.

Because I am going through major changes:

1. I finally bought a bicycle and just want to ride. If you know me, you know how that goes.

2. I dramatically reduced the amount of cooked food in my life and am exploring the wonderful world of raw eating.

Also, it is Ramadan.

Time flies when you are having fun

Just before the taxi arrived, the taxi that took us to meet my father and you asked him for my hand in marriage, you took this picture with your phone.

Você tirou essa foto com seu celular, enquanto esperavamos o taxi que nos levaria até a casa do meu pai, onde você pediu a ele permissão para casar comigo.

youandme

I love this picture. I love the way you were looking at me then, and that you still look at me the same way.
Eu amo essa foto. Eu amo o jeito que voce me olhava nessa hora, e amo o fato de você ainda me olhar desse jeito.

On October 7 , 2004, in Cairo, we got married. Five years ago. Before the wedding, we went to the pyramids and laughed at how much better they look on pictures. We went to the museum and you were impressed that the ancient egyptians played dice. When we returned from Sharm to Cairo from our honeymoon, it was the first day of Ramadan, we had to hire a driver, and the “limoseen” didn’t have much of an AC. The driver stopped in the middle of nowhere, perhaps close to Suez, and we broke our fast at a roadside hotel/restaurant that had an empty marble fountain at the entrance surrounded by novelty store plastic toy dinosaurs. I wish I had taken a picture, but for some unknown reason we have no pictures of our honeymoon. However, we do have a cd with cheesy “habibi dance tunes”, a gift from the recreation crew at the resort.

Em 7 de Outubro, 2004, nos casamos no Cairo. Cinco anos atrás. Antes do casamento, nós visitamos as piramides e rimos porque elas são mais impressionantes em fotos. Fomos ao museu e você se encantou com o fato de que os antigos egipcios jogavam dados, Quando voltamos de Sharm El Sheikh para o Cairo, era o primeiro dia de Ramadan, e precisamos contratar um motorista para nos levar de volta -- e a “limoseen” tinha um ar condicionado muito fraco. O motorista parou no meio do nada, talvez perto de Suez, e nós quebramos nosso jejum num hotel/restaurante que tinha uma fonte de marmore, sem água, mas cercada de dinossauros de plástico de 1,99. Eu queria ter fotografado, mas por alguma razão não fotografamos nada na nossa lua-de-mel. De lembrança, além da memória, só um mixed cd com “habibi dance tunes”, presente da equipe de recreação do hotel.

Why I haven't blogged lately

Por que eu não tenho blogado ultimamente.

1. Because the weather is finally nicer and I have dear friends who invite me to spend a day at the Four Seasons pool & beach. And they give you orange sorbet in shot glasses made of ice there.
Por que o clima está finalmente ameno e eu tenho amigas queridas que me convidam para passar o dia na piscina do Four Seasons. E lá eles te dão sorbet de laranja em shots de gelo.

2. Because I have tons of paperwork to go through.
Por que tenho toneladas de burocracias para resolver.

3. Because I started this painting of a rock formation in Wadi Rum.
Por que eu comecei esse quadro de uma formação rochosa no Wadi Rum.

4. Because a new season of Grey’s Anatomy started and i have cried at every episode so far.
Por que uma nova temporada de Grey’s Anatomy começou e eu chorei em todos os episódios até agora.
