When I See You High As Kites

Try As I Might, I Can't Get That High

Roma, Italia

So I just got back from Rome on Friday evening. I'll tell you, being in a foreign country is exhausting. And Rome was totally ridiculous, and we all masked our disappointment at Italy not being somehow fundamentally more fabulous than America by going to the IRISH PUB (of all fucking places) and getting schwasted more nights than not.

Now I am not saying that Italy sucked. Italy is probably fabulous, but ROME is a hot mess of tourists and immigrant souvenier hawkers coming up to you constantly and insisting that five Euro for a paper umbrella is a 'bueno price, just for you, special discount'. I swear that for every actual Italian person we saw, we probably saw three tourists, usually American or German.

And the food was not that great. Honestly, even when we went somewhere expensive (which covers practically every place in Rome, but you know what I mean, a real fancy joint with the candles and whatnot), the food was only as good as what my Grandma makes me when I come home (and my Grandma ain't even Italian).

And the traffic, my god. Everytime you step into the street, you just have to make the baseless assumption that you won't be killed or maimed by an oncoming Vespa.

And the people are so rude! And the buildings are old. I would say those three things summed up Rome: expensive, old, and rude.

But it was a cool experience anyway and I'm glad I went so I can finally say I got some use out of my passport. And I did get a wicked awesome tan.

When I got home, Dave had made me a candlelit dinner as a welcome home gift. Our new place is quite nice, but we haven't gotten the internet set up yet, so expect pictures and more stories in the future. I'm playing catch up right now in my class as well, so...I have the illusion of being busy with the reality of having time to do things, which haven't lined up in a long time.

I know this is an alleged music, fashion, and pop culture blog, but I'm not watching the VMAs tonight. I don't have the time and the VMAs are a complete peiece of shit awards show that mainly rewards artists that are terrible and hasn't been funny in, like, seven years.

So this is relevant:



Yeah, really.

PS) Things I got for free today:
chicken wrap
grande caramel machiatto
venti mocha
cheesecake
really awful catfish that I couldn't even finish (yet saved anyway...)
Tazo tea

The benefits of working in a cafe are amazing. The only thing I don't like about it is when people make up drink names, like a mocha latte (that is called a cafe mocha; as soon as you put chocolate in it, it stops being a latte...simple) or a mochacino. Also, cappucinos don't exist at our cafe unless you want your latte with half foam. If you don't want a lot of foam, it's a latte. Jeez, people, read a phamplet on barista work, would you???
