Amor é fogo que arde sem se ver

Amor é fogo que arde sem se ver;
É ferida que dói e não se sente;
É um contentamento descontente;
É dor que desatina sem doer;
É um não querer mais que bem querer;
É solitário andar por entre a gente;
É nunca contentar-se de contente;
É cuidar que se ganha em se perder;
É querer estar preso por vontade;
É servir a quem vence, o vencedor;
É ter com quem nos mata lealdade.
Mas como causar pode seu favor
Nos corações humanos amizade,
Se tão contrário a si é o mesmo Amor?

Luis Vaz de Camoes
The translation:
Love is a fire that burns without flame;
Wound that hurts and can't be felt;
non-contented contentment;
Pain that causes madness without hurt.
It's not wishing better than wishing good;
It's a lone walk amonst crowds;
It's an unsatisfaction in satisfaction;
It's even winning by losing.
It's being tied by wish;
It's serving, to who wins, the winner;
It's being loyal to the one who kills us, loyalty.
But how can its favor cause
Conformity in the mortal hearts,
Being love so contrary to itself?
I think that in Portuguese is much nicer!!! but ok... it is understandble also in English...
But anyway, I am writting it down here just to remeber myself that the first time when I heard this poem I loved (love at first sigh) but I though it was a sad description... and now, still in love, I see it as perfec description... It is not sad... can be not happy also... but it describes love!
Love, that even so contrary to itself brings in our hearts, not only conformity, but happiness!!!
I know, and I can not forget, that I will have a nice week after such very VERY nice weekend... in fact, PERFECT!

Vending Machine III - halloween horror...

I can't live like this!!!
Not was enought "they" had changed the vending machines from my office building, taking away from me the pleasure of the coke flavour (real coke, not pepsi...)...

The vending machine doesn't accept coins!!!! :-O

This only can be a trick from Halloween!!!!

Vending Machine II

Yesterday I went to buy some coke in vending machine, on my office building and for my surprise (a bad surprise) they don't have coke anymore :-(

When I say no coke anymore, I refer to the only one, the original, the Coca Cola... ahhhhhhhh

Unfortunately they only have pepsi now... it has coke, but doesn't taste like coca-cola! And I am not saying this only because I am a huge fan of coca-cola... but because I am also fan of a good coke...

Pepsi is not that good... coke is much better... and I did lot's of "taste studies" and the only one that approaches to the real coca-cola taste is a Alaskan coke (the one with caffeine please... what that hell is this of coke without caffeine?!) but pepsi is still far away from the cake taste

But, as fan of good coke I am addicted to the coke taste, I had to have the pepsi... sghs... sad news for my afternnons/evening at work... but at least they have ice-cream... (if the heat is strong enough, so I can forget that the winter is coming ;-))

Yesterday and Today

It's incredible how the same old same can sometimes look so different!!!

There is a construction next to Pieter's house obstructing the normal way to go to work... so we had to do a different way... in fact a slightl different way, we only took the next street instead the usual one and then we were again in the old 59 route... but only THIS detour (I hate my aim... it is asking for a f#$^% new upload, I sent install n times and keeping asking me again!!! I will just unistall it now!!! hihihi) well, continuing... and only this one sigle detour was enough to make me see everything different... a new angle, a new look... a new point of view of that old street... and seem more nice... all the trees were more bright, the whole day, everyhere

I think this did my day a bit happyier... I worked better... and I even found out a site with my favorite addicting game (Shise-sho: In fact... a site with lot's of the same game... it made my day!!!

Well, today the detour is old already... so, nothing was new! And been very realistic... also everything nice and bight wasn't really that bright but it was my new sun glasses that make everything brighter and redish/tanning, hihihi...

Nice new angle of view!!! -> new glasses :-P
