I had some family problems a while ago and I got late with my swaps. For a long time I got away from here. Now I am back and I intend to do my best again. I have sent my late packages, but most people didn't change their ratings. I hope I can fix my reputation and make part of swaps again. I am going to try to erase the bad ratings from the past.
I am ThaÃs, from Brazil. I am a 38 year old teacher. I live with my happy dog and we have lots of fun together. I love music and cinema.
I love girls singing. Jewel, Joni Mitchell, Diana Krall, Sarah McLachlan, Amy Wine House, Dido, Sinead O'Connor, Amy Lee, Nina Simone, Norah Jones... I also love some Brazilian singers as Marisa Monte, Ana Carolina, Luiza Possi, Gilberto Gil, Cazuza...
Milan Kundera, Edgar Alan Poe, Agatha Christie, Khaled Hosseini, Herman Hesse (LOVE HIM), Thrity Umrigar, Kim Edwards, Geraldine Brooks, Irving D. Yalom, Helen Fielding... But actually I've been reading more international best sellers... They're the cheapest to be bought in English. Shame on me!
There are so many... When night is falling, Trainspotting, Volver, Amores Peros, Krzysztof Kieslowski's Rouge - Bleu - Blank & Double vie de VÃ©ronique, Nosferatu, La dolce vita, Bagdad CafÃ©, Le fabuleux destin d'AmÃ©lie Poulain, Hable con ella, Je Vous Salue Marie, Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, Indochina, The Name of the Rose... I love foreign films, specially European ones. Brazil has an "ok" film production and we have made some excellent films. We are very proud of some Brazilian artists working abroad, as Bruno Barreto, Fernando Meirelles, Walter Salles, Alice Braga...
My hobbies are Postcrossing.com, reading, listening to music, watching films (JUST LOVE THEM!!! - I have a HUGE collection of DVDS), cooking, spending quality time with my dog - my friends and my family. I love to go fishing. My dad and I usually do it together. I like to go to open markets, they have great criative crafts.
I like scentend, coloured, cute and happy things. Incenses, little candles, stickers, different and original postcards. I LOVE POSTCARDS! I like cute things and everything related to animals, specially dogs (Yorkshire Terriers!!!). I like cats a lot too, I used to have one a couple of years algo. I miss him a lot. I like stationary, doggy things, nature, waterfalls, city views, different pens, I LOVE PENS. But my all loving thing is: FROGS! I love these little green fellows. I like things you can put on my bed, cushions, pillows, sheets... I love my king size bed! It's all mine! lol I like everything that smells good! I'm a very simple person, easy to please. I don't mind very much about details and I guess thoughtful things are the best.
Sitcoms are great. I like them a lot. Two and a half men, Grey's Anatomy, Mistresses (I hope it's finally back!), Friends (I still watch it!), Cold Case, Without a Trace, Supernatural, The L Word, C.S.I., Orange is the new black, The Big Bang Theory, and many others...
There are some really "hard-to-be-found" things here in Brazil. * Books in English, any type. * The film Double vie de VÃ©ronique. I have looked for it everywhere. It seems this film has vanished from Earth, lol. Once I've found a copy with NO subtitles. :-( I don't understand French. I understand subtitles in English and Portuguese though! * Colored and cute POSTCARDS. Most of my swappers send me Postcards, I just LOVE them. * Doggy stuff, like notepads, pens, stickers, notebooks... * Little stuffed animals. There's a swapper here, "Star", who has sent me a little stuffed lion. I LOVE IT!! I wish she could send me lots more, lol.* ALTOIDS. (There are NO places to buy them here in BrasÃlia).* Things for ChloÃ©, my dog. I have already received lots of things for her. It's a blast!
