Tonight I went to Red's birthday party. Well... it wasn't really a party. His birthday was on Sunday, but he got together with us for drinks tonight to celebrate and just have fun.

There weren't many of us but we managed to have a good time anyways... Let's just say that fun with Red and his friends is always guaranteed!!

There was a beer special going on, so we all got fairly tipsy for very little! Lol...
This led to some fun and games... namely a round of "spin the bottle" where we decided to invite some american girls and some brazialian guys in on the fun.

Hahah... I really wouldn't have said, but no one had any problems kissing strangers!

Luckily the bottle never hit me! Though we did have our version of the kissing game after the tourists left!

A good time was had by all!

Tonight I had an official Christmas dinner with out IT & Operarions director, his managers and their respective partners
These are basically my direct bosses and the main figures in the company.
It was quite an honour to be invited.

The restaurant was beautiful and very refined. It was a sit-down dinner, as there were only 13 of us.
Apparently it's unlucky to be 13 at a table... but the evening went so smoothley!
I thought I'd be embarassed, sitting with all the big shots and whatnot, but it was a wonderful evening!
We actually laughed and joked around.
Fortunately, though, my co-worker Valentina was there too. She's the girl I'll be going to Barcelona with for New Year's.

After dinner, I hooked up with Crystina and her friends (the people I met the night before at the bar).
We went to see Piazza del Popolo and drove around a bit. Then we stopped off for drinks and took a few pictures.
They are really a great group and also met during a night at some other bar. Basically Crystina is here for work (she works near Venice) and her friend (omg, I forgot her name!) was here visiting.
The other two boys are from Brazil, but work in Geneva Switzerland and came to Italy just for a brief holiday!

Anyway, they are a cute bunch! Hopefully we'll hook up again some time in the future!

December 21st 2007 ˜ day 350



It's been really hectic at work lately. I guess everyone's just trying to tie up all the loose ends before the holidays.
This past week has been pretty busy!

Tonight we went to a party in a Villa some guy rented out for his birthday.. (a friend of a friend, you know how these thigns work...).

We had a good time, but it was a pretty interesting ride all the way there!
First off, I get my head bitten off because we have to wait for Hotel boy to come down, as he fell asleep!
So we get to the hotel t pick him up and he's not answering his phone! So I decide to go up to his room and get him, but he finally answers so then we wait for him in the car. In the meatime Flavio is getting impatient and decides to take it out on me.

Then, we fianlly are ready to leave as am I'm pulling out of the Hotel drive way some crazy lunatic almost hits me! Basically... this guy was driving at about 130 kms an hour!
I'm at the interection, I look behind me to make sure no one is coming and sure enough the road is clear. So I'm pulling out and already in the lane and all of a sudden I hear this screeching, braking noise! I look to my left and there's this car right up next to me... I swerve to the right and avoid the collision! We barely just tap each other's side mirrors and then both stop.

So I'm in the car, on the right side of the road, while this guy has stopped further ahead on the left.
He jumps out of his Mercedes and comes at me with a violence and anger I'v never seen before in my life!

Luckily i'm not alone as I have hotel boy next to me and Flavio in the car behind me.
We immediately lock our doors and just sit there calmly, waitign to see what's going to happen next. So the thug comes at me shouting all kinds of swear words (very educational, I must admit...) and starts pounding his fists on my window. I'm afriand he's going to shatter the glass, but fortunately he doesn't.
He then storms back to his car... checks his side and then gets back in and drives off.

As you cna imagine I am compeltely speachless, yet calm. Hotel boy makes sure I'm ok and then we drive off again.
I will admit... my legs were jelly at this point, but I managed to stay clear and focused. I can't believe what has just happened and that I was so able to avid the hit, but staying it the car and not doing anythind was the best thing that could have happened!

So, after taking a depe breath, we're back on the road again.
We're driving and then we get lost... all the while with Flavio getting impatient and Alex's patience being put to the test!

WE FINALLY get to the party. After a few drinks and some good music, Alex finds her smile again!

It was a pretty eventful night but I manage to have a good time anyways.
On ou way home, we stop off for a late night snack... McDonald's... LOL
Hotel boy and I stop and talk and before you know it, it's 5 am!

I really enjoy the wind down part of the night... sitting and talking in the car, like there's no care in the world always make me smile.

We're just friends hotel boy and I.... yet I feel like there's more.
I won't ponder it further, there's no point... but still... talking 'till 5 am feels like heaven!

I thought this was in reference to Tim's photo blog for a moment (since he just got in a car accident). I was thinking: 'jeez, one lousy day after the accident and they proclaim his style changed? Did I miss something?? And when did we stop reading people's blogs?!?'

As I went through that thinking process, I realized that you MUST be talking about something else. See what I get for skipping around the postings?!?

And sunshine - sounds like you had a harrowing car experience yourself - sounds like you managed it well though! Good job!

I barely got a chance to sleep in today... I had a few errands to run, tidy up my room and sort a few things.
I also had to cook as I was invited to dinner over at Max's tonight, and we'd all been asked to brind a dish.

In the afternoon hotel boy called and asked me if I wanted to go shopping dowtown with him, as he wanted to pick up a few things. So I get there to the hotel to meet up with him, as the subway is close to his place, and he asks me to sit in the car with him a second.

He then hands me a little package... my Christmas gift!
He told me that he wasn't going to get me anything because I don't celebrate Christmas and he felt stupid getting me something.. but then he surprised me!
I told him that it was ok and that I'd always gotten gifts from my close friends so he should just do what he feels, regardless. The fact that I was going to get him something shouldn't have to influence him.
Anyways... he got me a really cool belt by Jean-Paul Gaultier... Madonna's favourite designer LOL

After thanking him we hopped on the train and went downtown. We jumped from one store to the next... shopping with hotel boy is crazy! Hahaha he was in such a rush! My feet were sore!
I did however manage to stop long enough to take a picture of the Fendi building, all decorated and lit up especially for the Christmas.

Afterwards I had to rush home to go and cook for tonight's dinner, but unfortunately, the road was completely blocked due to yet another accident! ARGH!!

My mom called me as she saw that it was getting late and I wasn't home yet. She knew I had to cook and so was wondering where i was. When I finally got home, I'd found she'd cooked for me!! Awww I love her! She saved my life! Hahaha

Anyways dinner was a blast! We had fun just eating great food, dancing and generally being silly!

Last day if work, untill the 27th. Yup I only get two days off, the 25th and 26th, but that's ok. I've got Barcelona waiting for me!!

I managed to go into work early, so I could get off at 4,30pm. But, no rest for the wicked... and so I met up with Flavio after work and took him to get his last gifts...
How on earth can you wait 'till the last second to buy your gifts?? It's not like Christmas is a surprise or anything... I mean, it come around the same time every year... Hahha... I guess that's men for you!!

I must admit, when I see the crazy shopping frenzy each year, and see how much money gets blown on gifts and all, I'm kind of glad I don't have to go through with that!! Though I do miss not getting any gifts! Hahaha
Mind you, there's always one of two friends I exchange gifts with so... I'm not compeltely giftless!

Seeing as there's no big damily dinner, no relatives visiting, no celebrations in our house, I always have the evening to myself.
So I decided to meet up with the Brazilians I met on Wednesday. Unfortunately the American girls had already left.
We went for a walk downtown and ended up up at Midnight Mass in the Vatican!! How ironic... a Jew attednign Midnight Mass! Shh.... don't tell my mom, she'll freak out!! I already had Hotel boy give me a belt with crosses and tiny saints on it... next thing ya know I'll be taking comunion! *Gasp*



See the entire set.

Met up again with the Brazilian, but this time he was alone... strolled round the center again. Though it was Chrismas day, the streets were rather busy!

He's the most adorable kid... shame he's only 24! Hahaha

Great stuff... lol.. I personally think it's very cool that you participated in the mass. You get to see what and how other people go about celebrating their religions and stuff...

I did notice the crosses on the belt.. I thought I was seeing things at the time.. lol

Don't give your Mom a heart attack! LOL

About Portuguese... My in-laws are from Spain as you already know... My sister's in-laws are from Brazil. Last summer they all got together. It was cool, because apparently they are similar enough- they could kick back and carry a conversation together. in Portuguese/Spanish.
sunshinecity Posted 11 years ago. Edited by sunshinecity (member) 11 years ago
Oh "participate" is a big word... let's just say I hung out.. we weren't really there to follow the mass. LOL We just hung outside with the big crowd. You weren't allowed inside St. Peter's anyways, not during Midnight Mass... that's only for bigwigs, heads of state etc... LOL

As for the language, I will admit knowing a tiny bit of Spanish indeed helps undertsnd better. Fortunately it's not too far off...

December 30th 2007 ~ day 359.. (somehow I think I messed up my day count!! LOL)



Finally time to head out and venture the streets of Barcelona!!
We woke up pretty early.. and after a nice breakfast set out on foot and headed towards the Rambla. This street is about a km long.. and the heart and sould of the town center. Packed with locals, tourits street artists, bars, cafes and restaurants, you're never bored!

Afterwards we went to see the Barceloneta, the new dock by the sea. There's a cool Mall, the Maremagnum... very modern and pretty busy during the late hours of the afternoon!

I can't recall the exact route we took, but we sure did see a lot!
I think the place that really left its mark has to be Casa Batllò... Antoni Gaudì's house, entirely designed and created by him.
When you enter the building you feel like you're stepping in to Alice's Wondeerland. It's undescribable...
Be sure to check out the links and my photos of this magical place!

The buildings and architecture in Barcelona are truly stunning. The modern structures surprisingly compliment the end of century (1800s) buildings.

We also visited the historic museum of Catalunya, the Sagrada Familia (the basilica, to this day still under construction, designed by Gaudì) and the Agbar tower, another crazy modern structure that is a work of art!

Needless to say our feet were smoking!! I even got a blister on my heel!! Ouch!!!

Check out all of the pics from our first day here!

December 31st 2007 ˜ the last day of the year...



There's so much to be said for today. So much we saw...
This city is truly amazing!

We started off our day going to the Maremagnum mall again, to get our dose of Starubucks coffee. My friend Valentina really digs it... and is sorry we don't have one in Italy!

Then we headed to see Antoni Gaudì's Parc Güell.
This place is truly enchanting... it's like entering a surreal realm of crazy structures, houses and incredible landscapes.
Doesn't this building remind you of something taken from Hansel and Gretel's fairy tale?

Afterwards, we took the metro (aka subway, aka tube) to see the Arc de Triomf and then walked through the Parc de la Ciutadella, Barcelona's main park.

We got back to the hotel totally frazzled!!!
We napped a bit, before heading out again for dinner and new year's celebrations. Hahaha, these had to be the funniest adults I've ever met... a group of french people.

Well folks.. I've finally managed to wrap up my 2007....

See you on the flip side!

Thanks for all the Barcelona links, loved seeing and reading about it. Starbucks? You don't need it in Italy, surely, you've got Lavazza, you'vee got Illy....

My girls loved the Parc Guëll, and took hundreds of photos there.

I get a little light-headed when I press that flipside link, but I'll keep trying, and sure to see you there.

Ciao!

Holy smokes, the 30th.. that building! Looks like shark teeth balcony!

And, the 31st is going out of 2007 with a bang, that is such a artsy shot... the bright red boat leading off center towards the right in a field of drab white boats... That is an excellent shot, dear!

Aww thanks hon... I thought it was rather unique... a red boat amongst all those white ones!
