Worth Losing Sleep Over...


Photosource: www.mightykat.net
How many all nighters can you handle in a row?

After the company Christmas party where I danced non-stop all night right through to the morning where the only pitstop was the shower before getting into work; the only image I had in my mind consisted of a bed and a soft pillow…

But then I got that call that told me I would get no sleep…
“I´m in Lisbon, as soon as you get your but out of work we´re going out!”
I managed to convince my buddy that I only had enough energy to last me until dinner but I surprised even myself…

Herman José´s Café Café in Alcântara…
I strongly recommend it!
The food is great and the prices are relatively low.
It felt good to live in the moment with two of my amazing friends.
The mood was so inspiring that we decided to draw up a list of the things we want to accomplish for the year 2007…
The list is meant to be common for the three of us, so before 2007 is through these are the goals we will strive to achieve:

1. Share a romantic bubble bath with someone special (S)
2. Find a soulmate (P)
3. Have dinner at the same place, around the same time with the same friends and their significant other (R)
4. Steal a kiss (S)
5. Convince Sunshine to go back to Madeira (P)
6. See Patricia Chapparinho´s singing carreer skyrocket (R)
7. Be responsible for a successful matchmake! (S)
8. Learn a new type of dance (P)
9. Reach our Professional goals (R)
10. Have a steamy night someplace we´ve never been before (And if possible with a position that hasn´t been tried yet) (P&S&R)

Hell… it´s a demanding list but they´re goals worth fighting for… i´ll be happy just to attain one… any one of them!

We sat between a hen and a Christmas party and once dinner was over, the entertainment began!
And the energy was such that I completely forgot how tired I was!

Kareoke…
There are people that should be sued for attempting it!
Luckily it´s one of the things I don´t suck at so much…
Saving all my Love for You – Whitney Housten.
I like the memory we created to associate with this song better the first one I had before.
I sang with my heart but it was my buddy´s voice that sang with me that allowed for a powerful and vibrating performance!
(better than on my regular performances in the shower)

We danced…
Never mind the fact that I´d spent the whole night before dancing without any sleep in between…
The way I see it… Dancing is like sex!
The rhythm is like foreplay…
Once you´re in the mood you can´t deny your body from moving!
The energy in the room was simply contagious!
Even the lady in the Father Christmas suit danced…
She was old enough to be my grandmother but she sure knew how to move it on top of a chair!

Thank God and Pirex for that Herbalife energy thingy!... It got me through the night! But after almost two straight nights without sleeping… I couldn´t wait to end the party in club duvet with the sheets are my partners and the blanket as the deejay!

When I finally did lay my head down on my pillow, I did so with a sigh and a smile of pure joy and contentment…

Ai, ai....deixámos-te antes das 5 em casa, o que andaste a fazer para não teres dormido?! ;) (não é para responder, just teasing!)

You´re right! Those were some of the most intense days of my life, when I look back all I can "hear" is Eagle Eye Cherry´s - Save Tonight! Man those were awesome times! Thanks for reminding me

Lord of Erewhon
I´ll learn your dance steps if you learn mine... When?
As for the common man... A common man couldn´t handle me. I don´t believe in subjecting someone to more than they can handle nor would I supress myself to any less than my full potential.

Isso agora... LOL, a verdade é que aproveitei para fazer tudo em "slow motion". Tomei banhocas, escovei cabelo... e aproveitei para reviver alguns dos melhores momentos da noite, quando dei por mim já era hora de trabalhar (Não consigo dormir apenas por uma hora ou duas, depois acordo xoxinha!)

It was a great night in deed! One of those that will stay in our memories forever. But... couldnt do it without you! You´re the soul of all parties. I´m so happy that you are part of my life. See you soon!!! There´s a lot of other people waiting waiting for their Sunshine here in Madeira! Luv Ya!!!!

Patricia Chapparinho
In case you haven´t noticed, all our nights out always turn out memorable because of the simple fact that we make the most of them! Couldn´t have done without you either!

Codigoverde

Thank god is christmas....
Pronto, bolto ao portugues.....
Sou dos poucos que usam esta linguazinha... whatever....
Dear Sunshine....(olha eu a dar ares que percebo de Ingles...)( lembra-me o Bono - Se eu falaxe portugues....)
Siga a rusga....
Vejo-te completamente extasiada e plena de planos a concretizar!!!!
Uau!!!!! deixas-me invejoso!!!!
Eu como planos a médio prazo tenho simplesmente mudar o MUndo....
Mas julgo que não vou conseguir....
talvez reduza os objectivos e me fique so por mudar portugaú.....
Minha muito querida amiga ( ou em estrangeiro...MY dear friend....)
como sabes é sempre um imenso prazer vir a teu espaço... ultimamente tem-me sido impossivel...mas agradeço-te as visitas que tens feito pelo Interior....e como já me deste teu presente de Natal (um pouco antecipado...mas vou rele-lo de novo...) vim dar-te o meu!!!!
virtual é certo....mas pleno de mimo e fantasia!!!!
Um beijo simples mas do tamanho do mundo!!!!
E dizer-te do fundo do coração que foi verdadeiramente um prazer e um privilégio partilhar contigo um pedaço deste ano!!!!!
Um raro privilégio neste dias de cinza parda que nos acompanham....
É verdadeiramente um prazer descobrir pessoas do teu caracter no quotidiano!
E muito sinceramente , é um contacto que quero manter!
Como presente , lanço-te um desafio!!!!
um dia destes, aluga o filme crash-colisão, estende-te no sofá e bebe uma bebida que gostes....
E garanto-te que parte de nós dois, enquanto humanidade, enquanto gente...passa na tela!!!!
E ainda que em silencio, na ausencia... brinda comigo!!!! brinda aquilo que de mais belo e autentico o mundo tem!!!!
A amizade!!!!!

Teu amigo ( na plenitude da palavra)

Paulo.

Um santo e Feliz Natal querida Carla!

Sunshine said...

Paulo!!!
Continua a dizer que és o único que escreve cá em português e alguém vai-se chatear contigo... lol.
Eu quero mas é saber das duas opiniões e ideias e estou-me nas tintas em que lingua tu te expresses... desde que faças-me intender o que te vai na alma!
Tu mudas o mundo começando por ti, se conseguires melhorar a atitude de uma só pessoa... tocar um só coração, já cumpristes a tua missão amigo! Tens um coração do tamanho do mundo e adoro-te por isso!
Aceito o teu desafio mas só se fizermos em conjunto! Tu fazes me lembrar um ditado que li recentemente que dizia: Eu ainda sobrevivia se me tirassem todos os meus amores mas morria se me tirassem os meus amigos.

Feliz Natal a todos… que 2007 chegue repleto de tudo o que precisam, pediram e merecem.
