I’ll be the first to admit that today the bus strike gave me the best excuse to hit the snooze button and skip driver’s ed class. As I sit here blogging in my pj’s I am only feeling slightly guilty for not walking the 30 minutes to school. I could have taken the car perhaps but then again there is the issue of my International license being expired, Oops! Oh, and also, the reason I am still in driver’s ed here is because I never wrote the exam in December like I should have and now I have to study the darn thing in Italian because they stopped the English exams. (Yeah, I know, my laziness has bit me in the ass…)
The good news is that I finally have high-speed Internet in my new apartment! The guy came at 7:45 a.m. and I truly wanted to pummel him for being 15 minutes early (since when is an Italian early anyways?), but I was too thrilled to be getting Internet so I spared him from my wrath.
I’ve also had to have the plumber here at some ungodly hour because I broke the bidet (it’s best not to ask too many questions about this one).
So, as much as I would love to rattle on here, my bus strike excuse can only be stretched so far and I must get a shower and walk to work soon…
But, before I go I wanted to share this clip with you because I think this guy is great. I have already downloaded several of his songs and bought a double CD set. I saw him perform on TV at a Christmas special in Malta and I was instantly hooked! If you like jazz here is a great song sung by Italian musician Mario Biondi.
