Update from Italy!  
Must go quickly, as am paying exorbitant fees to use hotel computer. Hehe... bad.

Italy is lovely. Even if I did just spend a precious moment looking for the question mark on this keyboard. (Just found it. Whoops.)

Ah... plane ride was interesting. Got no sleep but remained... er... basically awake. Food is great in Italy! First time I've willingly eaten spinach in my life.

Am currently in Sorrento. Pretty hotel. Pretty everything. I am convinced that everything the Europeans do, they do better than Americans. Sigh.

Went to Capri today and hiked for forty minutes up a mountain. Ouch. Visited the Villa Jovis, where Roman Emperor Tiberius used to watch people having sex and then toss them off the cliffs. Obviously the high point of my day, hearing about that. Bought Prisoner of Azkaban in Italian (and can actually understand a fair bit of it). Am also trying to find the Vogue with the very strange pictures of Elijah in it...? Have yet to find anything of the sort, but am continuing my dogged pursuit. Also bought LotR stickers aaaaand a SamnFrodo bookmark with a little ONE RING attached. It actually fits on my pinky, which is cool.

Will be in Rome... um... by Sunday perhaps? Oh, also visited Blue Grotto. Um... accidentally helped Beth to lose her wallet in the water. Oopsie.

Must go before I got completely broke! Leave me messages, so I can be halfway constructive when I get on the compy! :D Love me! (And many thanks to those who already do...)

Then Italy really is like it looks in the brochures and on TV? *Is most jealous* :p

Um... mostly. Very blue skies, very green greenery... but there tends to be garbage everywhere as well. There were Coke cans in Pompeii. And graffeti as well. Graffeti everywhere.

So it has its ups and downs.

*lurve!* Glad you're having fun :D Go hop a boat and visit Sicily real quick, lala! My distant relatives will feed you very, very well! And probably grope you, if you're into that . . . :D

I envy you! I want to go to Italy too.
^___^ You are in the same timezone as me now. ^___^ (The best timezone of them all. lol)

(Oh, and thank you for a new word for my hungry brain to eat. Exorbitant - I had to look it up in my dictionary. I love your LJ-posts, you have a wonderful talent with words and languages.
I have not, but I wish I had. ^___^)

It is a wonderful timezone. However... it's also six hours ahead of my normal timezone, so I'm slightly confused still.

you have a wonderful talent with words and languages

*blush* Aww. Thank you. Yes, I adore words and like collecting them. I really wish I could expand into a second language (er... a useful one. Latin is my second language, but it doesn't do me much practical good). But yes... Thank you!
