Venezia, Milano, Germany

Venice Venice is a beautiful town. We took the train in and then the vaporetto around to the Piazza San Marco spent about 8 hours there, walking and talking and exploring. It’s an odd place. Beautiful. Part of the beauty is in the decrepitness, and perhaps in the fact that it’s dying, sinking into the […]

Exams Ireland Italy and...

Exams I’ve never been terribly bad at exams. They generally don’t stress me out, and I test pretty well. Which is fortunate, due to my extreme procrastination.

I have been made the Pembroke MCR Sommelier. That is nice. I think it basically means that I get to spend money that’s not mine on wine for the rest of the year. You can imagine what joy that brings me. Maren asked me this AM if I was feeling better. I realised that since […]

Traveling (through giant piles of information)

I’m now traveling around the US in something of a limbo. I’ve been through through seven states and the District of Columbia in the last four weeks and am ready to slow down a bit. I’ve managed to find three excellent people to rent my house, an old friend, an opera singer, and a Pilates […]
