Saturday Snippets

1. This Egypt situation is freaking me out. I'm also very glad that this upcoming vacation isn't to Egypt because it would be a no-go. Also...I'm disappointed I didn't get to see Egypt before all this went down.

2. Sean and I have been sick for the past week. Sean got sick before me and he's been much worse than I. I was feeling bad for about two days and I'm feeling like myself again, minus the massive amount of sniffling I've been doing. I'm not used to Sean being so quite and going to bed so early. It's kind of freaking me out.

3. I think Boomer needs to go to food rehab, he's gotten to the point of food obsession and it's really, really annoying.

4. I had a girl this past week ask me a few questions about moving to Italy and about the unit here. I told her what I knew and about the expansion that is supposed to happen here in the next couple of years. She basically told me their branch manager said something else and she didn't believe me. Um...ok? I only live here in the place you're referring to. I'm pretty sure your branch manager doesn't have a handle on what's going down here more so than I do. Mmmkay?

5. Jersey Shore is going to be filming the 4th season here in Italy. Can you say disaster? I watch the show from time to time, but it's like a train wreck. I can't help but watch it. I'm a teensy bit tempted to find out where they are filming so I can go get some pictures.

6. I got my hair done yesterday. I have to admit I was a little nervous, even though I had my good friend (who is Italian) go with me to interpret. It turned out pretty good, but I would have been happy with a little bit more blonde highlights and a little less hair. The funniest thing? They were obsessed with my hair being naturally blonde.

My family (without me) is supposed to be going to Egypt in a few weeks. Of course, by then, anything can happen. But needless to say, they're anxious now.

I must have missed the Egypt me mom...maybe I need to check the news.
I love Italy used to live in Rimini!

Elle Sees said...

Yeah, my husband and I were supposed to go to Egypt in December, but couldn't make it into the port because of bad weather. Now I'm even more disappointed. Well, hopefully things will balance out there eventually. Definitely scary stuff.

Um, pictures!!!!

Just a few days ago, I was talking to a friend who had been deployed/stationed in Egypt about wanting to travel there...guess that's being put on hold for a while...

Adrienne said...

That Egypt situation is terrible!! I wanted to go while we are in Germany (for the next 3 years) maybe it will end by then??? lol

Branch expansion? In Italy? I want to hear more about that! Maybe there is hope for us to move overseas one day!

We're supposed to go to Egypt in late Sept. I'm hoping all this mess will calm down by then. We're also planning to take the Disney Med. Cruise again this summer (I'm waiting IMPATIENTLY for them to put their military rates out) and we're guessing they might change the stop in Tunisia. It's too bad because we really liked Tunisia when we stopped there last year.

Um, really? I'm pretty sure I would believe you with first-hand experience over someone who lives here. That's just silly!

Yes, please find out where they will be filming Jersey Shore and take some pics for us!!! You'd be my hero. :)

Okay, normally I'd agree with you about the not believing the branch manager. But I heard some weird little comments from very senior people at our ball recently that actually kind of contradict what i've assumed is going on here. How's that for cryptic?

I have never seen Jersey Shore, but read enough People mag to know and I will confess to being curious about where they are filming too.
