what is with this weather??? i wore two pairs of sweatpants and a sweatshirt to bed and was still chilly. jeezus. our apartment seems to absorb cold...maybe that will be nice when it gets hot.
this morning i woke up again to the sounds of cats attacking/getting attacked. i hate cats.
so i had class in ipanema and felt awful, from lack of sleep and from a cold i seem to have gotten from it being cold, but it was ok. i came back briefly and then went to centro for my new 12:00 class at the same oil company i have class in on monday/wednesdays with a lovely lady who understands probably 20% of the words that come out of my mouth. she is very sweet so it's hard to lose my patience with her but she barely understands anything. oy vey. on the way back home, i saw the sad homeless man playing a flute (??) and this young hip couple at the pet store near our house, getting onto a motorcycle after buying pet stuff, with a shaggy Yorkie strapped to the chest of the woman in one of those baby holders. oh rio.
now eli made lunch so let's see if it's edible yay...then class again at 6. and food shopping!
ps. yesterday i forgot to add that all the teachers at the kids school have to wear smocks. and all the kids have little backpacks and tee shirts with the school logo, even though it's an after school program. oh man.
Update: so i went food shopping today and got a reasonable amount of food for a reasonable amount of reais but i am growing increasingly broke as i have to pay my rent tomorrow. it's not fun. eliseu is out getting a pizza and a movie so we can have a nice little night in. i am pretty exhausted so it should be good. i had class in centro at 6, but it was pretty easy since the guy is almost fluent. those are the best. also, i saw a guy on the bus today selling pens who had long manicured and painted fingernails and huge gaudy rings, but he wasn't pretty enough to be a drag queen. weird. anyway. i have another long day of classes tomorrow so...off i go.
