Meow

Dear friends, I have not been ignoring you over the past few days. Or rather, ok, maybe I have been ignoring you just a little bit...but I think about you all the time! I just haven't had time to sit down and write a post. 

You see, even when I'm on my lovely, luxuriously two-month long vacation from my job teaching EFL at the University of Bari...I am never *really* on vacation because I do free-lance translation work. So, while I should be lazing about, relaxing and drinking mojitos (because that's what everyone does all summer long, right?) instead I am wrestling with unwieldy tracts on "fascinating" subjects like Securities and Investment Contracts in Italian Law” or a complete, detailed history of the Italian Navy.... 

I feel like the kitty in the photo below...a bit bug-eyed, with my tongue hanging out...yikes!

Hope to finish soon and have more time for the good stuff, like blogging and leaving comments on your blogs!

Completely understand... Mojitos and Investment Contracts just don't go together :D

What interesting topics, poor you ;)

Yikes. I would imagine those subjects help one catch on on her sleep. I was looking at your other blog and was wondering why you hadn't posted since 2006. Thank you for following.

Gah! That is utterly horrible. Here's to hoping you get through your work in no time!! :)

Sounds rather clever stuff to me, I am impressed at your skills. What a shame you cannot sit outside and work with a Mojito at your side.

Thanks for listening to me complain, friends!

LindyLou, with the mojito the translation might be more fun, but the result would definitely make less sense! ;-)
