So I lost a good 20 minutes or so of my email time to computer problems in the lan house. Turn out when you go to a ghetto hole in the wall lan house in brazil, sometimes the internet/computers don´t function perfectly. It was a good oppourtunity to learn patience....?
So first off all, I sent a whole bunch of letters out this last tuesday because that is the only day I have to send letters and it´s been about a month since I sent one. It took a while because every tuesday seems to be a holiday. The funny thing is no one has any idea why they have their holidays. Brazilian independence day was a few months ago, and I asked a whole bunch of people about the independence story of brazil, and no one knows. They just know that on that day, you don´t go to work because you drink all day. Who cares why, right? It turns out that someone finally explained their independence to me, and they claim a portuguese prince just kind of got brazil as a present one day. Wooooo. Independence. Last tuesday was Dia das Crianças, or kids day. There also exists a ``proclomation to the family day´´ which is a new thing. haha. go mormons.
anyways, I was eating lunch the other day and I ate a ton of this pepper sauce, and got it all over my lips/face. 5 minutes later, my whole face was on fire. I thought through a list of mildly basic things to neutralize it, decided on milk, and when we went to our house after I just dumped milk on my face. PROBLEM SOLVED. seriously it solved the problem. Thank-you chemistry. I´m not even sure that milk is basic. But man, it felt good.
Also the other day I was walking and I saw someones foot turn allllll the way around. MY eyes got huge, and then their leg just snapped sideways at the knee and fell off. At this point I did that terrified face that Todd has seen 10 million times, and thought about the probability of a zombie apocolypse. uuhhhh. turned out to be a prosthetic leg. oh wells.
But yeah. woo. Sorry I can´t type more, but I don´t really have anytime left due to the poopinessss of the computers. I lurves you alls and have a good day.
also it´s good to know my nephew has balls. Thor it is then. I´ll make him and electric hammer when I get home right after I make a few other ideas my mind has been cooking up. Example:swamp boat bicycle. Link up a weed wacker engine to a big fan and slam it on a bike. It´d be sick, and you can still pedal. how cool is that? anyways gots to run. laters
