- The trash men are on strike as of earlier this week. Naples flashbacks won't stop. . .
- A pedestrian was hit by a car on my street a couple of days ago.
- I was at the park with my kids the other day and among the flock of pigeons that attacked us was a parakeet. A bright green parakeet.

Well, now, don't you tell me to smile
You stick around, I'll make it worth your while
Like numbers beyond what you can dial
Maybe because I'm so versatile. . .

I would have written much sooner, but I’m having a tough time logging in to blogger.com soooooo take it up with them.
Anyway, in the last week, I’ve made no progress on anything. I babysat a couple of times for an American family, which was awesome, but it’s not going to pay the bills. . . or all the rent. Dave showed up and promptly interviewed for the gig in Uruguay. He got it; I didn’t. And that’s all I’ll say about that.
I’m doing a little freelance writing, but I’m mostly spending my days watching Gossip Girl. Productive use of my time, I know. But I consider it an investment in my future, because when I am rich and have moved to the Upper East Side in New York, I will know how to conduct myself. Or. . . not conduct myself, I guess.
And I forgot to mention, I am in love with Buenos Aires. I get this city, I know how to get around it, and I’m showing other people how to get around. Dave and I are headed to Al Carbon, which is one of the restaurants that I went out to a couple of times with people from the hostel. He wants one of those famous Argentine steaks, and Al Carbon is one of the best places to get them (keep that in mind if you ever come to visit.
Lastly, I think I’m going to move the poll to this page and just show the results on the other page, because I can actually put a poll application on this page and not on the other (as far as I know). Enjoy.
