The Brazilian version of CNN (Globo News... the N channel) had a special on TV today about UC Berkeley! They were interviewing Brazilian foreign exchange students about their experiences at the prestigious American university. :o) It showed lots of shots of the school, like Sather Gate and Wheeler and the library and Haas, and it even showed clips of those damn sorority girls that sing a capella in front of Sather Gate. It made me soooo sentimental and nostalgic! It was also great because Alexandre got to see where I spent 2 years of my life. I miss the Bay Area sometimes, like when I'm far away and I just see still images and I can forget about all the annoying hippies and the crazy people and the cold.
Work stuff is going great; Visa stuff STILL has no answers. Time is running out! But we know that once we GET the answers we need, it will only take a day or so to get the paperwork to the appropriate people. And the paperwork just has to be recieved before my current visa expires; it doesn't have to be approved yet. I think we need to like, sit on the administrator's stomach and tickle him mericlessly until he tells us what we need to know.
Alexandre's in the process of making a delicious dinner of meat-stuffed pasta with tomato sauce and chicken. (Yes, 2 meats in one meal.) I'm going to eat that and rest.
I miss everyone!
