words about words

Oh man, this is the most amazing place I have ever seen in my life. So bummed I can’t upload photos for you, but this internet closet in my hotel (the only place with access!) won’t let me download the photo uploader thingy for Spaces.
So, go check ’em out on I took 180 photos yesterday, so there will be a lot when I get back.
Funny things I did not put on
  • Two of our finalists were totally sicked out by the cheesy smell at the parmigiano factory, and plugged their noses like babies.
  • One finalist actually brought a girl that is not his mom. she’s beautiful but only speaks french and clings to her boyfriend like a dryer sheet to a towel.
  • I have already had due espressi this morning and am running on 4 hours of sleep
  • Tensions are running high here. The finalists claim not to be nervous and won’t really talk about who is their biggest threat. Looks like dumb macho posturing to me.
  • The young aussies and brits have hit it off and are hanging out and joking around.
  • Just between you and me, I predict a win for MaxFatality. He’s a nice kid as well as a great racer and I really like his mom.
  • I have not had a chance to shop. I have not yet had a chance to change my dollars for euros. Yes, I could use a carta di credito, IF I weren’t a naughty little overdrawn bank account monkey!
  • Italy has crazy toilets that spray a ‘sanitizing mist’ when you stand up. Eek.
  • I don’t think I’ll ever straighten my hair again! Bologna is filled with bella italian chicks with hair just like mine. I thought this hair was a curse from my great grandmother Maria Guarnieri (nee Brescia) but maybe I could get to like it!

    What?  They gave you a driver?!  I spent a month in Sicily back in the ’90s, and Itlay’s the SCARIEST place in the world to drive!  Count your blessing, TriXie!

    That parmigiano factory sounds like heaven to me, I put that on
    everything.  Not to mention after a long night of drinking it’s
    fun to evenly coat whichever of your friends fell asleep/passed out in
    a layer of parmigian cheese.

    The trip sounds like a blast, thanks for the great coverage. I have read all the updates and want Maxf wins it all. I hope to visit Italy one day, but for now, thanks for sharing the experience.

    I’m glad to hear that you are enjoying it.  All that I ask in return is that you bring me back a bowl of spaghetti and a large pizza.

    Congrats on finding the ‘shift’ key!  🙂

    TriXie, top of your list for "items to bring back from Italy" should be one of those 40lbs wheels of Parmesan.  It’ll cost you about a grand, but I guarentee you’ll be a hit in the office.
