Buon pomeriggio! That means “good afternoon” in Italian, which I’m sure you guessed. Anyway, some exciting news here at John and Elana: I (Elana) am going to Italy. On Friday. With the fabulous and worldly Marmo (my mom).
Yes, it’s true! I am going to let Marmo run me ragged in the streets of Italy, shuttling me from one place to another, eating and drinking one thing after another. Sounds like torture, no? No! I’m psyched. Above is a loose schedule that we will be attempting to maintain.
Traveling with my mom is like being first mate on a very tightly run ship. NO SLACKING! Get back and swab that deck! I mean, drink that cappuccino! My mom has, in fact, earned the title The Little General for her ability to boss people around and take charge of events, trips and just about anything else. In this case, I am quite happy to be bossed around, and I have completely released myself from any duties EXCEPT reporting back to you! That’s correct, I will be posting from afar so you can travel with me. Kind of. Cool, yes?
Additionally, there will be a CONTEST while I’m away (read: FREE STUFF). All you have to do is post a comment on the blog (anywhere on the blog) during this time and you will be entered to win a prize. What is this prize, you ask? I have no idea! But it will be something Italian, and I will personally bring it back from Italy. For you (whoever wins). Bene?
Oh, and just so you know, John will be maintaining normal posts around here while I’m gone. Please make sure he doesn’t burn the blog down, k?
