SO much to do

So I hope that the quality of this video is better than the first, because blogspot seems to totally pixelate my videos that really don't look that bad when I am editing them...oh well I will repost if it looks bad. Anyhow I have been super busy every day so unfortunately I must state that these videos (if you havent already guessed) shall arrive very sporatically, perhaps once every two weeks. My days are full of waking early and passing out late. I drink in the afternoon, at dinner, and late at night. I am working on videos, various writing ideas/stories, class searching, house searching, friend meeting, food consuming, wine hounding, bicycle riding, and profuse sweating due to the intense humidity. I have met a few local poets whose poetry I am translating and (according to my mother) the U.S. government will pay me for my work. Even if they don't I believe that I am appreciating this poetry much more than I would have if I had just read it over once. You all would have a blast here....

In this video my friend Valentina helped me film some things, but she went back later and deleted all the scenes with her in them, but I managed to squeeze some in of her. I also had a very ambitious idea for a fun film that I could post, but it was taking so long that I gave up and just inserted what I had in a random fashion. I did save some other fun stuff for my next video however. Enjoy! Oh, and keep it coming with the posts, its a nice way to connect with you guys.

my god you are effing adorable.

and, uhm, i can't remember when you said you were coming back, but i think you should stay til the end of august 2009, because then i would be able to come visit you! and by "visit you" i mean, have somewhere free to crash while i wander around the city and drink wine and coffee after i graduate law school and take the bar.

so, yeah.

yo sista

well, I got stuck in the narrative, the part where "I drink in the afternoon, dinner, etc," because I know you don't get UP until the afternoon, so what does that leave, but that's just me.

and I love the bike. and the towers. and seeing you there.

Ciao, figlioccio! We just adored the tour of Bologna, La Dotta, La Grassa, La Rossa! Brought back many good memories of the city and reminds us of the new ones we will create when we meet in Parma! Ricordo, cena a Parma, sabato,ottobre 4! Bring a pal if you'd like and we'll celebrate your birthday! Let's talk on the 3rd. You've got Bruce's cell# and your mama just gave us yours! Can't wait to see you in your new incarnation!
