Observation #1. Getting Behind.
I'm getting behind on the blogging. I write hypothetical blog posts in my mind all the time as I'm walking around, and then I never actually sit down to do it. Someone should invent a device that automatically uploads thoughts into blog format, I'd really appreciate that.
Observation #2. Cafe Arm.
I'm getting some pretty serious "cafe arm". I always sit in the cafe facing outward towards the street, and all 3 cafes on my street are on the same side. Since my favorite thing to do when I'm off during the day is sit in the cafe and have a late morning coffee, the sun is always coming at me from the same angle, hitting my right arm. So when I look in the mirror, my right arm has a significantly dark tan, while my left arm remains barely colored. So if you happen to see a picture where one arm is white and the other is brown, this is why.
Observation #3. Bread Overload and Loving It.
Once again, I told myself this morning as I bought a fresh baguette that I would eat half for morning/lunch and save the rest for dinner. As I've gone back to the kitchen several times to get "one more bite", I now realize there are about 3 inches of baguette left. People usually buy a baguette and intend to share it with their whole family for a meal. Meanwhile, I continue to eat whole baguettes by myself. I have a problem.
Observation #4. Must get iPhone.
I just had a fabulous week of vacation w/ Julie P. We had a blast in Paris, then in Florence, then in Paris again. I have so many great things to share, but how to even begin?? My camera card is actually bursting at the seams and leaking pictures out, there are so many. I can't wait to tell some stories!!
But now over the next 12 days, I have one day off work. If I had an iPhone, I could share these moments throughout the day in tidbits using a website that some of you may have heard of called "The Facebook" and "The Twitter". Instead, I go dark for two weeks and then resurface and want to create 400 blog posts. I should just get this internet phone device and be done with it.
So...I'm hoping at some point over the next 12 days, perhaps on the one day off, I can write a blog post or two. Because there's LOTS to share. If not, maybe this will force me to go into a phone store and sign up for a plan. Get myself a non stone-aged cell phone.
In the meantime, here is the Super Quick Recap:
Florence=beautiful, epic, old, adorable, ridiculous.
Julie P=fun, comforting, taste of home!
Food we ate in Paris=outstanding
Amount of pasta I ate in Italy = embarrassing
Gelato = multiple times daily.
The duffle bag Julie P brought = joy, happiness, excitement!!
Going back to work after taking 6 days off = :(
Italians = hilarious.
More soon! Ciao!
