**i wrote this entry a few days ago when i first got here bc i couldnt get my STUPID internet to work but now it works! so ill have new fun things to read up sooooooooon....write me comments afterwards in case i dont get to talk to u next time im on and ill answer them...you better just bookmark this page altogether lol...**
This is going to be a very long entry about my first few days in italy. I figured this was the best way to do it since I cant be online for that long since its expensive…im actually not even online as I type this I just did it on word and copied and pasted it. Aren’t I smart?!?!
Anyway, so the flight was really good for a few reasons – (a) the hot guy sitting next to me. (b) the fact that my mom and I both got our own window rows because the plane wasn’t crowded at all. (c) there was no turbulance. (d) there was a hot guy sitting next to me, who was Italian, had an accent, talked to me a lot, and was hot. Yes. Anyway, so it was fine, except for the fact that Gucci was kind of annoying bc it took forever for her tranquilizers to work, and even when they did she was still on and off rowdy. Oh and also, I realized that I am still scared of flushing the toilet on the plane. HEY. STOP LAUGHING. Don’t even ACT like that scary exploding noise doesn’t make you jump a little. Its kind of like popping balloons, its scared me since I was a kid and I don’t think im gonna get over it anytime soon…so I just put the lid down (to muffle the noise), open the door and press the flush thingy and run out as it begins to flush. Yup.
Oh and at JFK, EVERYONE was flipping out over Gucci….we like, went to the stores bc we had time before we boarded and the dog was hidden in her bag and all the store workers would be like, hey, we saw you around before with a cute dog! And we were like, yes, we still have her, don’t worry, we didn’t throw her out or anything, weirdos. Oh and when we had to go thru the metal detectors and stuff there was a funny black woman that held her after we went thru so we could put all the stuff back in (like my laptop which I had to take out completely) and put our shoes back on bc now I guess its mandatory to take off shoes with wedge heels (which was gross bc I had to walk thru the detector barefoot)…and the woman was like ooooo shes a little Gucci with the little louis vuitton bag ooooooo lol she was all excited it was so funny.
So eventually we got to italy and got to the car, which is a new car that we leased, not rented, and its soooo nice. So my moms like ok I need to get gas the car isn’t filled up, so we go to the station and my moms driving the stick shift and we’re both really jetlagged and she goes in to pay for the gas and she said she came out and saw me putting on my lipgloss in the car with the mirror down, totally not noticing that the car was slowly rolling backwards. I was just like LA LA LA then when I look out at her and realized it I was like AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She thought that was pretty funny.
It takes a really long time to get to my house from the airport in Milan so that ride was like reallllllly long and the people drive soooo fast on the big highways it was crazy, id totally forgotten how fast they drive. Oh and in italy, truck drivers are ALL HOT. Well the young ones at least. Its so weird like, its not really that looked down upon to drive a truck for companies I guess so like, HOT GUYS do it. I was like, how did I never notice this before theres so many damn trucks around. That was nice eye candy. Except when hes driving the huge Parmalat truck and riding ur ass while ur going like 90 mph…
Anyway, so my house has been un-lived in for 2 years, so we had to spend Tuesday and Wednesday hard-core cleaning. Like, Dylan, you would have DIEDDDD….why? well, there were spiders. Spiders, spiders EVERYWHERE…like full webs spanning the edges of CIELINGS ok…and not just like, little happy spiders, like MOMMACHONCKIN MOTHERLOAD DADDY LONG-LEGS’ that legs are like the size of my fingers. It was easy to get rid of them tho bc we just sucked them up with the vaccum cleaner. It was so funny the Italian vacuum cleaners have this long extension that is like a huge gun, so id like go up to the webs and the spiders would feel it coming and start getting all frazzled and id be like OH YEAH BIATCH?!?! And suck it up. So we had to like scrub all the floors and clean everyyything and put up the curtains (which is really annoying bc theres high windows and ceilings and we need to use huge ladders), and we had to like put all the carpets down and arrange everything that was in storage, it was a lot of work, it was like, harder then work at the lawfirm! But it was totally worth it bc now its like SO clean and nice and relaxing. I still have to clean my room bc of course I put it off and I need to unpack too but BAH, who wants to do that!
We’ve been eating out for every meal, the lazy gluttons that we are lol…its SOOOOOOOO good omg…the food here is like so amazing I cant even stand it, I totally missed it so much last summer. I’ve been drinking wine with dinner too, like a real Italian!! Lol…and they have this really good sweet fizzy white wine that tastes like champagne…yeah don’t worry, I learned how to order the GOOD SHIT for when Florence time rolls around. I like asked my mom how to order it bc I didn’t listen when she first got it and she was like HEY, I KNOW WHY YOU WANT TO KNOW THAT!! Lol but she was totally cool with it she was like YOU BETTER ORDER IT! Its so good! Good old mom!
Okay so the funniest thing is that the Italians are OBSESSED with the Eamon song “don’t want you back,” but they play it TOTALLY UNCUT! My mom was like what the hell is this!! Like they seriously play it every 5 min on every radio station, even in stores and restaurants. And they even have a dance remix of it (of course)…never censored always uncut…its so funny. Every time it comes on I like flip out bc I find it so hilarious to hear like, on the radio, FUCK WHAT I SAID IT DON’T MEAN SHIT NOW, FUCK THE PRESENTS MIGHT AS WELL THROW EM OUT….FUCK U U HO, I DON’T WANT YOU BACK…like its just so funny to me. Ive seriously seen Italians like singing along in the Gelateria and im like im gonna pee in my pants. HOLY SHIT MY MOM HAS THE RADIO ON UPSTAIRS AND IT JUST CAME ON. IM NOT EVEN JOKING!!!!!!!!! HAAHAHAHA OMG lolllllllllllllllllllllllllll
Wow craziness. Anyway so that’s pretty much whats been going on the last 3 days ive been here, im gonna try and update all the time with more exciting updates lol I promise…the only thing that kind of disappoints me is that we only have basic Italian cable we don’t have the satellite cable yet with the movie channels and the porn. I mean….what?
Ok ill be updating later so check often! Ciaoooooo!!!!
