These past two months, my cousin Fabio (abduzeedo) has been hanging out with me here in Raleigh, North Carolina. Sunday at 3:30 am he returned to Brazil leaving me here with memories from our wonderful summer.

HOLD! You should really listen to this song while you read this post! It will enhance the experience. ;)

I thought it would be cool to share with you guys a little bit of our adventures in America so you can see what we got up to and give you a taste of what our lives are like. Everytime Fabio said something stupid I'd write it down, so what better way to show you what our lives are like than to share with you some of the funniest quotes from the man himself. Oh, and I promise he's not as disgusting and mean as he sounds ;)

Fabio: I'd give anything to take a shit right now. Fabio: Oohh, they left the virgin margarita.. let's get drunk! Fabio: Your birthday is 27... July... June! Amanda: You said July.... Fabio: That's because my English sucks F: I'm gonna fart really loud now. That deserves a quote. F: If I knew English my jokes would make so much more sense F: For the one year daily inspiration we're gonna post 365 images... it's gonna crash computers all over the world..... haaaaa I'm so diabolical F: I'm a ninja F: Sunny D is good but it gave me heartburn... more like hell in my heart. Like heartburn in my ass. Don't quote that. A: He's Jewish F: Marry him. Don't marry because of love, marry for money. Money is more romantic. A: He used to do a lot of drugs... F: And? F: I'm like a machine of beautiful quotes F: That was too much for your little peanut brain F: Nothing like some good old KFC fried in the oil of death. F: I'm like an oyster of quotes... pearls after pearls F: Your taste in men is weird. A: My taste? Your taste is anything living. F: That's a good definition of my taste. You nailed it. I have an appreciation for all female forms in the world. The least I can do is love them all. F: Not even the greatest chefs in the world would be able to assemble such a beautiful gnocci mountain F: If there's something I can cook it's greasy sauce. Delicious greasy sauce might I add. F: You know, people call me Mano because my retarded brother couldn't say Fabio. How bad is that?
