A meme from Marina di Campo

So as a welcome to the blogging world, I decided to write a meme. By the way, work is going well. I have little free time and have lost my tan, but I like what I'm doing for the most part and get paid tomorrow.

1. My uncle once: sold Jim Beam. And then Jack Daniels. And now Absolute Vodka...

2. Never in my life: will I ever force myself to settle in a place where I don't feel at home.

3. When I was five: I spoke fluent Italian.

4. High school was: Strange. And I can't remember a lot of it. Except for the year abroad in France things.

5. I will never forget: the way my mom used to look when she would get ready to go out with my dad. They don't really go out any more and my mom looks more her age every day.

6. Once I met: Muhammed Ali. But I was a baby and don't remember it. My mom still has his autograph though.

7. There’s this boy I know: He can make the best cosmopolitans in the world and free styles with glasses and bottles. He's "dangerous" but I like him anyway and he knows it.

8. Once, at a bar: I met two couples from Coeur d'Alene on the Isle of Elba. The next day, I met a woman who had gone to WSU. It's a small world after all.

9. By noon, I’m usually: washing dishes and getting ready for the lunch time wave at the Garden Beach, my lovely place of work. Also very hungry.

10. Last night: I stayed out too late with a boy from Milano.

11. If only I had: more time to learn languages and travel around without needing to work or study.

12. Next time I go to church: I will light a candle for my nonna and the rest of my family.

13. What worries me most: is that I might never find what I really want. A good job I like, a place that feels like home, and my own family.

14. When I turn my head left I see: book and cards and drinks for sale.

15. When I turn my head right I see: another computer and an open window.

16. You know I’m lying when: when I seem really bothered, turn red, and try to leave as soon as possible. Or when I laugh, and then tell you thay I'm lying.

17. What I miss most about the Eighties is: that I didn't get to be a teenager during them. No leggings, no awesome music, and no big hair.

18. If I were a character in Shakespeare I’d be: A cross between Hamlet and Desdemona. Both doomed, but for different reasons and in different ways.

19. By this time next year: I will be getting ready to go back to the States after a year away. Christ.

20. A better name for me would be: somethings all americans can pronounce. Like Sara.

21. I have a hard time understanding: people who are dishonest with me.

22. If I ever go back to school, I’ll: try to actually graduate.

23. You know I like you if: I try to be around you all the time. I will also bite my lip at you and smile whilst raising my eyes toward you shyly.

24. If I ever won an award, the first person I would thank would be: Eric. Actually my parents.

25. Take my advice, never: fall in love with someone who isn't worth it.

26. My ideal breakfast is: Either a perfect cappucino with creamy foam and a raspberry tart or my dad's waffles drenched in maple syrup.

27. A song I love but do not have is: What's Going On? by 4 non blondes

28. If you visit my hometown, I suggest you: eat at Mickey's Gyros, have coffee at One World, hang at the Coop and John's Alley, and watch the sun come up at the water tower.

29. Why won’t people: let me be who I am and stop making fun of my accent in Italian?

30. If you spend a night at my house: I will take very good care of you. I love guests.

31. I’d stop my wedding for: a change of heart.

32. The world could do without: Nationalism.

33. I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than: be polite to a cruel person.

34. My favourite blonde(s) is/are: Marilyn Monroe (fake blonde though she was) and the Germans that come to the bar.

35. Paper clips are more useful than: Staples. They come off more easily and you can reuse them.

36. If I do anything well it’s: being a good friend. And talking too much.

37. I can’t help but: think about culture constantly. Seriously, all the time. Ask Eric, he knows.

38. I usually cry: when I'm really angry or when I'm really lonely. Traveling around by yourself is really amazing and makes you independant and stronge, but sometimes all you really want is someone to make you a cup of tea and hug you.

39. My advice to my child/nephew/niece: Learn early on in life who is worth trusting and caring about and who will just try to push you down. Also- speak up when you're uncomfortable, don't understand, or just want to say something.

40. And by the way: I'm really bad about keeping up blogs when I'm busy and don't have my own computer with me. Sorry.... :P
