i love the night life...

harro... so, i would have posted yesterday, but i was at the beach [tee hee] soaking up the sun and checking out the incredibly abundant number of people wearing speedos that really shouldn't have been wearing speedos... you know... there are certain body-types [mind you, only about 2] that work in a speedo, everyone else really shouldn't try. blah, so i came home last night with a wonderful tan [considering the depressingly pasty state that i was in before i went to the beach]. a few of the people i went with received pretty hefty burns and are somewhat of a pitiful scarlet color today.

i also found a really great bookshop in trastevere [open door bookshop] and i swear that it will be the death of me. they sell used and new english books and they have a really great selection for such a tiny shop... and the people who run it are staunchly anti-bush... as is the enirety of rome... so i really enjoy shopping there and they like me because i don't like bush. woo. it's going to be a wonderful relationship - me and a lovely bookstore - i will treasure all of my new treasures always.

yesterday evening was my second experience cooking in my shoebox [also known as my flat] and it's a really terrible thing... if i turn on both of the burners [yes, we only have 2] at medium heat, along with the vent, no other lights, chargers or the television can be active or we will short out the apartment. i HATE it. on top of the fact that i have no room in which to work and that it gets so swelteringly hot in there, i cannot bear to think that i have to cook in the dark. ahhh. i think that my roommates and i have decided that we will be an eating-dinner-out kind of group... lunch and breakfast are fine due to the small amount of natural light that filters into our tiny window, but i can't do the whole cooking-blind thing.

ok... so i will leave you with that for now, but more will come. toodles.

Nobody likes bush over there? what the hell is wrong with them??...oh nevermind, you're talkin about our alcoholic president. what was *I* thinking?? definitely eat out. nobody likes a dark, stinky, unentertaining place to hang their head.

And i think you should send a pic of the worst Speedo-ists. Make them sorry they've clouded the beach, and as Chris Griffin would say, "Hogging all the ugly".

i'm against posting pics of nasty italians in speedos.

jason... i think that we're headed back to the beach tomorrow [depending on the weather], so i will bring the camera and 'deliver the goods' so to speak... i am going to preface doing this with the fact that you may deeply regret having requested that i do this, but i will deeply enjoy the entertainment that it may bring to many...

hey, by the way... have a kickin' time in vegas baby... cause you're so money! yeah...
