You guys are so patient. Here a new blog has not been forthcoming in weeks, yet you check back.

Since we last spoke, I have seen Assissi, Siena, Florence, Naples, Pompeii, Pisa, Roccasecca, and the island of Ischia. Things are great, but so ruddy hectic I barely find time to do homework and email my family. My friends all think I have fallen off the face of the earth. There are no apostrophes on Italian keyboards. I have been awake for 14 hours and have eaten nothing but two apples, half a bag of potato chips, and some Reeses Pieces.

I need food.


  1. Hey girly! I miss you. Also, there are appostrophes on Italian keyboards, but I think it's some sort of difficult combination of keys (kinda like the @ symbol). Have a great time!

  2. And that my friend is why you tote an American style keyboard to Europe.. ;P

    I too recall the " ' " key as existing on the keyboard, but not in the normal location (normal as in 'back home')

  3. She'll figure it out eventually.

    When are you leaving for the land of poles?

  4. Well, I mean, it's there. You just have to push something wierd.

    As in, you push the dash key for an apostrophe, and the apostrophe for the dash. Icky.

  5. I once reformatted my keyboard to the British standard form. It made writing papers much more fun because I had that occasional distraction of trying to remember just how to make quote marks.
