does anyone know: – a site where I can enter in the name of an airport or city and find out what direct flights are available to and from there? For instance, we want to go to Dublin, Cornwall and Italy and are trying to figure out where we can go direct from those cities, […]

I just saw Mr Lebovitz’s post about anti-thanksgiving with foie gras and black truffles… And here I thought I’d had the most fabulous post-Thanksgiving dinner… We had gone to Lucca Friday afternoon, despite the rain, and toured a few churches and the supposedly “area pedonale” narrowly avoiding death by italian drivers.

Jim Carroll! You scored 45 Demeanour, 72 Debauchery, 41 Traditionalism, and 50 Expression! Oh, now, aren’t we just so dark and brooding and too-cool-for-school!

I saw three films at the SFFS Italian film festival this week. Sunday: The Wedding Director(with David & my italian teacher Anna) Beautifully filmed but hard to follow (even for italian speakers) and multiple dream endings left me with that feeling of triteness. Some interesting commentary and allegories with filmmaking, but overheard lots of people […]

a reader asks: If someone was a really good baker and gave you cookies they made, would you still eat them if you knew they had mice in their kitchen? we had a mouse in our “kitchen” this week. caught it in a glue trap behind the counter, and then david shot it in the […]

I’ll admit, I didn’t think it would really happen. Still, I’m annoyedly bitter that the Dems seem to have only won because the Repubs did themselves in with a lot of particularly stupid news bytes and reactionary mudslinging campaigns.
