no. that´s mine. get your own!

yesterday maría luisa came into my room looking for a shirt she had lost. she said it was a white tank top that was a gift from the mother of a former student. i said, "well, i have a white tank top, but it´s mine." and i showed it to her. she said, "sí, sí, esa es la mía." (yes, yes, that is mine.) and i said, "no i don´t think so." and she went and got a beige one out of her drawer that happened to be the exact same brand. but i know that it´s mine. she went on to tell me that she had washed hers this week and that it was missing. and i went on to tell her that i had also washed mine and that i was pretty sure it was mine. and then she took it. communication is ridiculous when you don´t speak the same language...

in other news, i leave tomorrow for a week in dublin, rome, florence, and pisa. i expect that it will be lovely!

Hiya sister loo - if you haven't left already - when in Rome, no don't do as the Romans (smoking while riding a vespa is a nasty habit), but instead go to a restaurant called Myosotis and tell them to give you whatever they think is best - it will be a fantastic meal - one of the best of your life. In Dublin - go to Temple Bar area and check out Trinity College zone - also, definitely do the Guinness tour so you can kneel and pay hommage at the black gates. In Florence - hit the leather market by the Duomo and get gelato at the place on the river just off the Ponte Vecchio (on the "downtown" side)- again fantastico. Also, if you can take a day trip to Tuscany out of Florence (rent a car) - hit up the Gabbiano vineyard and a town called Sienna and/or Greve in Chianti - both are bellisimo. I am totally jealous...

o sad, sad to get your own shirt taken from you.

I don't want to know about these finger nails of Alicia's... i can just imagine.

O how I miss you and hope you are well. I cannot wait to see you and hear stories and tell stories.
