|Nothing turns me on more than this.|
Well, for those who read religiously and are wondering what I possibly could've been doing these past few days that didn't allow me to write another post, I'm sorry to say that nothing profound has happened. I did some shopping, and that's about it. My favourite store in Rome is called Tally Weijl, which is similar to Forever 21. I bought a hot pink skirt, black glittery top, and a dippy-wrappy-kind-of-funky leopard print top. This means that the next time I choose to go clubbing, I won't be standing in my closet for a decade trying to remember what I wore the weekend before. I also bought some cool jewelry, a new scarf, and, best of all, A NEW COAT. But not just any new coat! A snow white, winter pea coat that fits me beautifully, even when wearing a thick sweater underneath. It has these cute silver buttons that make me feel like an adorable and feminine British soldier. Because its white, I can wear any coloured scarf with it, which is wonderful. It also has these white silk-lined pockets that make me feel like I'm touching heaven whenever I stick my hands inside. I wasn't planning on buying a new coat, but my beloved grey bell coat is tattered.

So - on a more important note... This Wednesday, I am moving in with my new family. This day has crept up on me, and I'm beginning to pack my belongings, which is making everything more surreal. I'm not really sad about it - I'm excited, more than anything. Actually, I'm realling looking forward to it, and I don't totally know what to expect. Sure, I'm still a bit nervous, but wouldn't you be too?
Luckily for you, I'm in a wild writing mood which means that I've decided to write about my many random thoughts of the moment. The first thing on my mind - Italian salad. Italian salad consists of lettuce and nothing else, unless you decide to add some sea salt, balsamic vinaigrette or olive oil. At home in Canada, we add carrots, cucumbers, shredded cheese or even possibly cubes of cheese, a wide variety of dressing, croutons, etc. So salad here is very plain, and some of the American au pairs have complained about this. Personally, I don't mind. Its healthy and delicious.
Second thing on my mind - waffles/crepes/pancakes with hot chocolate dripping down it. I don't have anything else to say about it, just that I would really like some at this moment in time.
