I know, I know...

I've gotten few yelps of protest from the handful of wonderful folks who read my blog...

I apologize for not posting lately; I've been preparing for a trip to Rome and haven't had time to write. I have the privilege of accompanying my mom on her "dream trip" to the land of La Dolce Vita. We leave on Mother's day for a weeklong trip.

I've brushed up on a few Italian phrases, and even learned how to deal with the kiss on the cheek thingy; I accidentally kissed a seventy-something man straight on the lips trying to figure that one out a few years ago. Mom and I are going to stomp around ancient ruins and get our pictures taken with Gladiators. I'm stoked.

I promise to finish up the two or three stories I've been working on while I'm away, and I promise to gather new fodder as well. (Let's see how masterfully I embarrass myself and those around me in an international setting.) We'll be escorted our first day by a buddy of mine who is a story in himself, so there's bound to be a thing or two of interest to write about.

Sorry to make such a "bloggy" post, but I wanted to let you guys know what I'm up to. Until then, Ciao, Arrivaderci, Buon Giorno! -V
