Photographic evidence:

The message Neil left on FLIP's guest book.

!!!!!!!!!! (no explanation needed)

The size of the line to get him to sign books. Neil signed from 1 pm to 6:45 pm. I was glad I was able to talk to him before, but, if I hadn't, I would be one of the last people there. This was the size of the line right after the panel finished. I was very much *glares*

And last but not least, my copy of American Gods, and the cutest drawing of Odin by Gaiman (didn't manage to put it on the proper position. My photo editing IQ is the equivalent of that of a blind amoeba).

On a not completely unrelated note, I've started reading David Sedaris' Me Talk Pretty One Day, a book I bought at FLIP after watching some of Sedaris' panel. This book is so hilarious I magnificently failed to prevent myself laughing out loud while inside the car with a French author and her translator on my way back to Rio. They obviously thought I was nuts.

So I yesterday ended up in the hospital because of my stupid thorat and have no idea when I will be able to go to São Paulo. Getting better, though, so no need to worry. I will try to travel as soon as possible, so, good people of São Paulo, have faith! *grins*

Meanwhile, I was going through my Photoblog archives (I miss those times so badly --bloody Belgians) to find some pics for [ profile] anokam and decided to make a post with some pictures since I've never did that here. Some of them are more than one year old, though.

Anyways. Have fun, kids.

Just take my picture )

Brasileiros que nunca comentam aqui porque ou não lêem inglês ou não estão a fim:

- As fotos são de vocês e para vocês. É só clicar no lj-cut. Tem umas bem memoráveis.

- Eu estou ficando melhor - acabei parando no hospital - mas eu vou fazer o possível para ir à São Paulo o mais rápido o possível, ok?

- Amo vocês. óò

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
