We had an incredibly fun and wonderful time at the Canada Day party last week, and on THIS coming Wednesday, we're going to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Brasilia).

Brazil Day should be amazing!

We'll visit the famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. We'll dance the samba, the rumba, and the cha-cha-cha. We'll drink South American beverages (whatever the heck they are) and we'll consume sumptuous rich food at the churrasco (barbeque).

And to add true excitement to this particular Zedstock event, we will
take a boat trip down the Amazon to the depths of the rain forest, where we will camp overnight with remote rain-forest villagers and fight off bugs, wild animals and bats. Ay caramba! Does THAT not sound like a fun time or what!!

Think about what you will bring to the party on Wednesday to help make this party go down in Zedstock history! You may contribute food, beverages, people dead or alive, animals, insects, clothing, you name it.

I'm bringing the soccer superstar Pele.

So don't forget to stop by on Wednesday for an exciting time in South America! Cucharacha!

This sounds like great fun, will bring Brazil nuts. Maybe some fruit & a littler Brazilian music.
Looking forward to relaxing on the beach.

Always wanted to visit Brazil. I'll bring a copy of the movie "Fitzcarraldo" to prepare us for what we might encounter in the Amazon.

I know suprising little about Brazil, time for some research.

I would like to dance atop that statue in a sleeveless and see through white cotton dress with my hair blowing in the warm breeze.

But, then I'd have to put on sun screen to protect myself from ultraviolet rays and that would make me all sticky, the dress would stick to my legs and body... it would no longer flow but create a wedge between my thighs only for me to trip and fall square on my a$$...

Ok, image gone!

Dr. Mom between your image and MixedNut wearing his thong it will make for an interesting party. Do it, we'll get more visitors that way.

Um, what's a "Brazillian Wax". Sorry, no clue. I'm still all a little 'vague' about this "trip", but I'm here. Behind the bushes. Watching......

Dick, I'm so glad to see you here! Don't worry--we will have a great time with Brazilian cuisine and beverages, dancing, singing, etc., starting tonight at midnight and throughout tomorrow.
Brazilian wax? I understand in general, I'm not sure of the details either, and don't think I want to know. Don't anybody tell me. :)
See you tomorrow, Dick Small! We'll all have fun! Bring something Brazilian to the party!

I dont know anything Brazilian...HELP! Can I just bring George Clonney? Well just because. And I am sure Johnny Depp could act Brazilain...he's so awesome!


Opps sorry got carried away with thoughts of Johnny and George, dueling for my favors....

Blogger Teri said...

oh, you should definitely look up the definition of a brazilian wax, it will make your eyes water that much more, especially if you're a girl. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!

Mel, PLEASE bring George Clooney and Johnny Depp. PLEASE!

Teri, I looked it up. I'm now quite sure that "OUCH" doesn't begin to cover that sort of pain. Ay caramba!

Don't forget your English/Portuguese dictionary.

Ah, yes, the English/Portuguese dictionary... I hope I learn a few more phrases than "Ay caramba" by tomorrow!

you sure you don't want to know what a brazilian wax is? I would be more then happy to share that info with you.

Please keep that information to yourself Teresa. I already know too much by checking it out on the Internet. Ouch.

If we are getting waxed, I need to skip. Or drink more.

Waxing isn't a requirement of this trip Lynda. Just be sure to bring Brazil nuts and learn the samba quickly!

Yeah, I had a Brazilian wax, didn't ask for it, but the girl got "creative"

Man did I itch!!! There's nothing that can cure that!

Of course there was much laying sod that went on despite the itching.
