Well, Sean and I made our decision. We weren't trying to really rush into anything, but with him taking this class over the next month which meant he had zero time to go look at more options and us wanting to settle in, we decided on the apartment.
Honestly minus zero grass, I think it's one of the better options I saw in the way of apartments. I don't know how they do private rentals at other OCONUS locations, but here they have computers that show all the info and pictures of your options.
I do think we'll be happy and I feel confident about the safety of the location that we have chosen. So, we start pre-negoiations tomorrow and hopefully we can get settled into our place in the next few weeks.
Now with that out of the way I can tell you guys about the most hilarious thing I've seen so far in Italy.
Italian Wheel of Fortune. Seriously, I wish you guys could watch this, it's non-stop laughs. Not because they are trying to be funny, but because it's so ridiculous you can't help but laugh.
Here are a few reasons why:
1. Their equivalent of Vanna White looks like one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends and at random times they show camera angles, pretty much looking up whatever dress she has on that night. Also at certain times they request her to break into impromptu dances.
2. One of the contestants the other night had a little laser gun that he kept shooting at the wheel whenever his opponents were spinning. Yeah...I have no idea.
3. The catergory for one of the puzzles the other night? Uno hit per George Michael. No I am NOT joking when I say that.
At night we've been renting DVD's from the library and enjoying some seasons of shows we've never seen before. So far we have LOVED Damages with Glenn Close. It's this awesome lawyer-esque show and I cannot wait for the second season, which is currently playing on FX. We recently started watching the first season of Six Feet Under. I find it odd, but like it for some reason.
Last night I convinced Sean to go see Bride Wars with me at the theater on-post. I thought it was a cute film, although a little predictable. I did however, love whatever Kate Hudson happened to be wearing throughout the entire movie. Sean was convinced before we went that he'd be the only guy there in a movie theater "full of chicks", his words not mine. Obviously there were many men there with their wives and oddly we saw three single guys leave after the movie together sans girl. I'm not saying I didn't expect guys to go to a "chick flick" I just didn't think I'd see three guys all going together. I have to admit it was kind of amusing.
Well, I need to catch up on reading some of the many blogs I've missed the last couple of days.
