There is always a lot going on in December and this one is no exception. Yesterday was my birthday and my Italian final. The day before I finally shot a commercial that I found out that I booked the day before! I was very nervous because word has it that this particular director insults people and makes people burst into tears. As I stood there with my hair partly up, glasses, and suit and pearls, I waited but the worst I got was being referred to as Sara Palin for the day. Phew.
The Italian final took two hours and I have no idea how it went! Parts were easier but a couple of things ... well, it was as if I just couldn't find that file in my brain! After 5 pages filling in blanks, I got to the essay. 100 words. Unfortunately I think I might have used "molto" and "bella" about 10 times.
The best part of my birthday was of course when the professor stopped the final exam and everyone sang "tanti auguri a te" to me, the happy birthday song in Italian! Then, after the final, a group of us went out after class and I got another rendition of Happy Birthday at the Jazz place by the man who sang "I'm just a bill" for School House Rock! How cool is that?
As a child I collected mice and still have a great affection for the Christmas variety! Aren't they cute? The mouse couple didn't actually come as a couple. They were given to me separately as a child and I played matchmaker. The mouse below was from Anthropology a few years ago and I just think there is a stoic proud nature to this little mouse.
I fell in love with the "snowing blog" at Erin's Art and Gardens. She has one of the most beautiful blogs ever and if you haven't visited her, I would highly recommend it! Anyway, I think I may have to have Cobalt Violet snow for a few days!
I am off to more birthday celebrations and pastel class.
I hope you all have a beautiful and amazing weekend my dear friends.
I will soon have more time for blog visits and postings!
