Eternity just got a bit longer: Rome celebrates its 2,770th birthday today.
I want to say thank you to Sara from The Rover in Leather Jacket who alerted me to it. Have a look at her most recent post and give us your favourite words in any language in a comment. She will appreciate it and me too, and nobody needs to apologise if there are too many. (See what I did? These two are my favourite words in English.)
In other news, I have that kind of slight fever that when I look out, I see a face of a weird Star Wars beast instead of the usual pine tree. I think I need more dad’s tangerine liquor.
Also also, my laptop shut down by itself three times today which made me google the problem and I found a trick with a straw, Scotch (tape, not Four Roses) and a piece of bread. Bread is for stopping you salivate. You’re welcome. It felt MIGHTY silly but so far, so good.
Also also also, I watched Haneke’s “Amour” yesterday and “Lone Survivor” today and I feel the weight of living all of a sudden. If you ever have a feeling that your job is a pain in the ass, have a look at either.
But now a quick tour of Rome, the Eternal City. Imagine how many vampires live there. Photos are ordered from May back to April since I’m lucky enough that I can visit it in all seasons. More info in the captions if I manage to stop looking at that face. It has turned into a skull by now.
Happy birthday, Roma, e stammi bene.
