- Fizzy Thoughts: Curses, foiled again

Curses, foiled again

Wednesday, April 04, 2007

Back in the dark ages, I signed up to take an Italian class. Then I had a blonde moment and missed the first class (I thought it was on Thursday night, come to find out it was Wednesday. Geez, dontcha just hate it when that happens?). So I had them switch my registration to the next class being offered, which was to start next week. Yes, was. That's right, it was cancelled. Now I'm enrolled in the summer session, which ends the day we leave for Italy. Hopefully, I won't forget or be cancelled on again. Otherwise, I'll be walking around Italy saying attraversiamo.

Friday we're going to Mama's Meatballs for lunch, so at least I'll be able to practice my menu Italian. They've got outrageous tiramisu, so at least I've got that one down. Although now that I think about, the young man who took our order last time had an Italian accent...maybe I should trade HB in for a different model so I can have my personal Italian tutor?

On a different but sorta related topic, I'm still reading and still loving Eat Pray Love. She's in India now, and I'm learning all sorts of stuff about Yoga that I didn't know. The best quote so far from this section comes from Richard from Texas:

"Man, they got mosquitoes 'round this place big enough to rape a chicken."

Now there's a mental image.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
