This is a Democracy

The staff here at Living and Loving has heard your cries, and the blog color scheme has returned to green. A total of 4 readers weighed in on this matter, which really isn't a lot, but one of them was my dad, and so that makes it uber-important. I actually didn't understand my dad's suggestion, but I got that he wasn't a fan of the white, so back to abrasive we go. Maybe one day I'll change the font on ya, just to mix things up. I'd like to draw attention to the fact, however, that although the background colors may change, the theme will always be the colors of the Brazilian flag, which is why you will never see red, orange, black, or purple here. (Although you would never see purple anyway, I really can't stand purple.)

I'd like all readers to know that this blog is governed with a system of democracy. Even if the important issues such as color schemes only get 4 votes, you better believe I will listen to the majority of those 4 votes. I, in true political fashion, will do anything and everything to just make sure you keep reading.

So, with that affirmation in mind, I'd like to make a call for suggestions on blog topics. Are you particularly interested in knowing how my Portuguese is coming along? Would you like to hear more about my readers? Would you like me to weigh in on what it feels like to be the only American (until tomorrow) at this church? Are you interested to know what it's like to be an American living here in general? Would you like me to explain what my parenthetical 'until tomorrow' is about? Do you want to know what my future plans are?

Stay tuned for my next post, which should come tomorrow, entitled "Well It's Been 6 Months...WHAT??" It should be a fun one. Until then, please vote (either on my blog topics or in the primaries in Texas, Ohio, Vermont, Rhode Island, etc, etc.) Happy March!

hey. I vote for all those topics (can I do that?) I especially would like to hear first about your plans for the future though. Also I've already voted in the primaries for Texas and if I could vote in the other states I would be all over that. Unfortunately, only one state is allowed.

Ummm... that Bob wasn't your dad. Maybe Sergio?
Mom
I prefer the green, too.

Cris said...

Thanks Mom. That makes a LOT more sense now. But maybe since I publicly declared Dad's opinion as more important that will entice him to comment more often.

all of the above, with an emphasis on readers

Perhaps you want to avoid detection by the Brazilian police force, but I would love a series of blog posts detailing your diabolical plot to take over the Brazilian government, install me in a puppet regime, and wield power from behind the scenes.

Yes, more of that.

I wasn't feeling the white, so I'm with your (fake) dad.

I saw on Jeremy's blog where you talked about eating at the 'Blo and I shed a quiet tear during a moment of silence. Man I miss that place and some papas tejanas!

p.s. You should come try and raise support in Tennessee while you're home, just sayin'...
