i am a sucker for gh. when i used to work at earls, i would get up every morning and do double duty on y & r and this shit.
and now james-mother-of-all-things-good-and-holy-franco is guest starring as a artist/murder suspect?! i cannot believe that the one year i have no access to television, this groundbreaking event will be happening.
can someone please tape this for me? or whatever contemporary equivalent of that is possible? thanks.

caitlin is a neat girl. we play baseball together, and she makes cool clothes. she is moving to finland for a fashion design programme in january, which will be the perfect excuse for me to visit weird, wonderful helsinki.
look at her blog, it is next level.

no - i am not quite done wringing the shit out of hallowe'en yet. because mine sucked the big one this year, i decided to prolong my homesickness for debauchery and watch one of the best horror shorts i've ever seen. made by, and starring, friends!!
catch the full frontal feral terror fever!

so i just got back from an epic roman holiday. having never been to italy before, i partook in as many of the amazing things it had to offer as i could. basically, i stuffed myself with delicious porcini risotto, al dente pasta, unbelievable wine and walked around just staring at things until my eyes got blurry.
i was lucky enough to have been able to visit the pantheon, the vatican, the colliseum, the forum, and even the headquarters for valentino - where i got to touch (read: clutch and yelp at) julia roberts' and cate blanchette's oscar dresses, jackie o.'s wedding dress to aristotle onassis, a dress worn by princess di, j-lo's sea-foam green grecian-inspired dress from some sort of super-crazy event (you'd know it if you saw it), and about a million other amazing things that i can't even find the words to describe.
what an absolutely stunning city. everywhere you look, there's something there that reminds you of the ultimately very tiny role you play in the history of the world.. now back to reality!

this week's feature: rockers!
sick sick sick jamaican movie from the 70's - check the intro. and then hit up your local indie video store to rent it, because this shit is not available at blockbuster. spoiler: it's like robin hood, but for stoners.

so, these are pictures of my new 'hood. that's the 'mediterranee' in the background of first one - so gorgeous. tatiana and i went for a run this morning down by the pier and i am kicking myself for not bringing my camera. superyachts as far as the eye could see - insane-o stuff.
the last one is of dorothy, pavel and will walking through the tunnel near the hospital back to my place. the nights here are balmy, with a bit of a breeze from the ocean. i'd almost think i was on vacation, if it weren't for the financial accounting text book weighing down my shoulder bag - reality check!

wrote the worst ever mid-term on friday morning. financial accounting - sounds like a blast right? well, surprisingly not!
we were all feeling a bit bummed about our (lack of) stellar performance, so we hit the dance floor. really, really hard.
that's dorothy's friend bobo, on the far right in the first picture - she came up from south africa with dorothy's brother (her boyfriend) and we had a lovely dinner out near the casino. tatiana didn't make it out dancing, but we met up with will and some other people from class and worked it out.

today i got a package in the mail from krissy!! my first piece of mail since i arrived in this strange land. so she wins the prize for ruling my universe for the day.
inside: 1 package of balloons (note: will be used to celebrate my long-awaited arrival to the new flat in cap d'ail!), 1 plastic rib tip (think: fred flintstone's dinner) to put on the end of my pencil, 1 6-pack of moustaches (thank god - i only brought one pack with me, so i'd be sure to run out before the year was through!) and 1 lovely card with deer prancing on it.
basically, it really picked me up after this piece-of-work-weekend i've had. amazing, kris! you successfully:
a) reminded me of home
b) made me recall good memories
c) made me feel warm & fuzzy

oh snap - forgot, but will and i are going to see jane-freaking-birkin in concert in about a week and a half!! most of the entertainment stuff here strikes me as a bit busted, but at least we get to see one of my own personal legends perform!

okay, as per leah's request, i've been asked to go into a bit more detail with my posts. so, here goes:
last night, we went down to port hercules to check out the yacht show. it's your basic tradeshow, but filled with uber-rich, poorly dressed europeans and a decent amount of fake boobs. didn't exactly fit in, but whatevs - we had passes.
it was pretty beautiful, but a bunch of tired-ass students rolling into that scene was pretty funny - at least it was happy hour. glasses of rose for 2 euros!! we walked up this pretty cobblestone street and had some pretty decent thai food too. unfortunately, today we are double booked for class - finance in the morning (and seeing as i've been reading the wrong text book.. i have some catching up to do), and marketing this afternoon. i've been chosen to present a case study for my group on the fashion channel, and hoping that homeboy doesn't call on me. we're ready, but good gravy, i hate speaking in front of my class. yipes.
oh yea, these are my homies: tatiana, dorothy and will.
