Apparantly I do not like ricotta cheese. It kinda ruins perfectly good lasagna, don’t you think?
So anyway, I am back from a pathetic hiatus from the blog world. The hiatus being due to my vacation in Puerto Rico, which I probably should talk about, my busy schedule at work, my lack of computer access, and my overarching issue of having nothing terribly interesting to talk about.
So Puerto Rico. It was lovely. I would like to return there someday, and since I have all sorts of family there, I would certainly have a place to stay. Perhaps most importantly, I discovered that my skills in the Spanish language are pathetic, and that I spent so many hours in classes and I can’t remember much of what I learned. People talk so quickly there… there is no way I could comprender what they were saying. Luckily, almost everyone spoke English. So, this sort of deters me from studying other foreign languages, knowing that proficiency is such a long way off. I’ll just buy an English to Italian dictionary and a phrase book for whenever I get to go back to Italy. Oh, I’m horrible!
The best thing about Puerto Rico was the time spent with family, and what a strange family it is! Also, you really can’t beat the walks on the beach every morning, the beautiful sunny sky, and the almost perfect weather. I could spend a lot more time in Puerto Rico.
Well, it’s almost time to go home and eat some queso (that happens to be inside a leftover calzone), but I’ll leave you with a real treat… some quotes from the Puerto Rico trip… warning: they are mildly racy, but I laughed a lot:
-In reference to the small breast size (and large rib cage size) among family members my aunt said: “It’s ok. What we lack in breasts, we make up for in ribcage.”
-In reference to ‘sex on the beach,’ my cousin said: “It’s like doing it with a broom. You’d get splinters in your hoo-hoo!”
