Hi, everyone! I'm 30 years old and I've been a total Beatles' fan for a long time! I was born and live in Portugal (yes, that little country next to Spain) and, when I was 12/13 years old, I thought something like "I want to find another type of music, something very different from what my classmates like". So I went to a shop where, in those days, the shopkeeper played a CD for us if we asked her/him. For some reason I noticed a Best Of of John Lennon and something told me "Listen to it!". That's what I did, I bought the CD and I was totally amazed and thought "That's what I was looking for!". So I immediately bought the Anthology CDs, which had just started being sold, and I thought "Wow! I didn't know there were songs as wonderful, as genial as these! These guys are genius!". So I didn't stop until I bought all the Beatles' albuns. I simply LOVE their music! When I was a teenager, the other teens thougt I was a strange girl because I loved the Beatles' music (well, not just because of that; also because I loved reading and didn't like the things they liked, but the Beatles were a very strong reason for what they thought about me). Well, the truth is I didn't care they thought that, I felt they were the ones who were missing the best band in the world.

What else can I tell you to introduce myself? As I said, I'm 30 and I'm Portuguese. I studied languages and literature (Portuguese literature and English language and literature) at university and now I teach English, mostly to young children, but sometimes also to teenagers. Besides listening to the Beatles, I love reading (my favourite books are classics and Fantasy) and also writing (Fantasy). I also love anime (Miyazaki, of course, but also lots of 80's anime series). I enjoy 60's and 70's music very much but nothing compares to the Beatles, of course. I'll never forget how I felt when I went to Paul McCartney's concert here in Rock in Rio Portugal 2004. It was... Well, there are no words! I was also lucky because in Expo 98, when I was 14 years old, they had concerts and Ringo Starr came to Portugal. I didn't leave my parents alone until they said "O.K, we're going to the concert". a-hard-days-night-george-10

Well, I guess I've already written too much... Nice to meet you all! :D
