Feather Fantasies & Fabulosity



So after a full week off work and a lot of bone aches and bed rest, I seem to be mostly dengue free! Went back in to get my platelets checked yesterday and my blood is fully coagulative, so no excessive bleeding for me! And work again tomorrow, but I finally feel up to it. The bad news is there won't be many outfit posts coming up for while since I was too lethargic to get out and wear them.

The Ups & Downs of Rio



Finally, the promised Carnaval pictures! These are all from the Sambadrome (sambódromo), where a couple nights a year Rio's favela communities come out to play in all of their finest, sparkliest regalia! It was a fabulous time and an incredible show that starts at 9 pm and keeps right on going until 5 or 6 am the next morning. We headed out around 3 because we were exhausted, though, but not before we snapped these! (Click here to see a selection of the press photos.)

The Lazy Sunday Chronicles


Weekends, now that I'm working a job and a half and a blog and a whole lot of job applications in my "free" time, have become pretty mandatory hardcore fun-and-lounging days. Saturday is Funday, where we go out and get some good wholesome SP experiences, and Sunday is lie-around-and-pretend-we're-going-on-a-run-later day. And then Monday is too soon.

(Wouldn't life just be infinitely better if we all only had to work 4 days a week and had 3 off?)
