I dream of going to Brazil.  I want to see Seu Jorge live while I’m there!  I discovered him while watching one of my favorite movies, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (he played Pele, a crew mate that played Portuguese covers of David Bowie’s songs).  This is one of the songs I fell in love with. :D <3 -AK


TRANSLATION FROM PORTUGUESE TO ENGLISH:

Carolina is a girl who is difficult to forget
Sways nicely and a bright look in her eye
She has a fresh thing about her that drives me crazy
And I won’t even joke about her moves
A feminine wonder, a special sweetness
Intelligent, she is very sensual
I will confess that I am in love you

Oh Carolina that is very natural
Oh Carolina I need you
Oh Carolina I can’t stand not seeing you
Oh Carolina I need to talk to you
Oh Carolina I’m going to love you

From Monday to Monday I go crazy to see you
When I call you’re almost never there
That was the other thing that I wanted to tell you
We don’t have time so I better not
On Sunday tell me what you want to do
Make me a request and I’ll make it come true
Look friend, she only gives me pleasure
That Carolina rocks my world

Oh Carolina I need you
Oh Carolina I can’t stand not seeing you
Oh Carolina I need to talk to you
Oh Carolina I’m going to love you
Carolina, Carolina
Carolina, I need to meet you
Carolina, I feel lonely
Carolina, I need to tell you
Oh Carolina I just want to love you

Carol, Carol, Carol, …

One day, I’m going to dance in the streets of Brazil during Carnaval. Beautiful, topless, painted gold, and with feathers dripping down my back… Like the phoenix that I am. :) —A.K.

I want a pair of thunderbolt earrings for the summer.  Especially since a lot of “hero” films are coming out.  I could even sport them for Harry Potter nite. (yes, I love Harry Potter probably more than I should for my age…) 

Also on the list of jewelry that I’ve been wanting for years is a Bonfim Brazilian Wish Ribbon bracelet.  The story is that these ribbons come from the mystical town of Bahia, Brazil and they help grant wishes to all who wear them. Tie them around your wrists, ankles, bag straps, key chains, etc. When the material wears down and the ribbons fall off naturally, your wish will be granted. 

A little magic and a little luck. :)
