    Hmmm... Only problem here (besides the fact that I am a nurse and never worked in an office) is the fact that I dont live in Brasil :-P

    @ Mandi: portuguese is pretty easy to learn, piece of cake actually, or should I say "canja de galinha" (it actually translates as chicken soup, but its the portuguese equivalent of piece of cake... not that portuguese people or brasilian people call chicken soup to pieces of cake, not even to egg puding, but I guess you got the idea :-D )
