"Bring me back something French!"

That line always comes to mind when I say goodbye to people going to Europe. It's from Home Alone and that line has always stuck with me.

Okay, enough of the random. The reason I wrote that line is because I am accepting money and requests from people who want me to buy them things from Italy and England. I've had requests for English tea and Italian wine. So, the invitation is open. If you all want me to get you something, find me, give me cash and write down what you want. I will make sure to get it for you.

I can't believe that at this time next week, I will be in Florence. I'm so excited. Still quite stressed, but excited. I'm sending you all an invitation for an informal bon voyage party for me and Rachael. It's going to be this Sunday, I'm just trying to figure out if it will be at mine or Rach's house. You'll get the invite soon.

Other than that, not much to report at the moment, just tons to do.

Oh! By the way, check out the recent posts on the right side of my blog. We've got some brilliant minds on the left. You'll see what I mean. :)

Emily --

Promise me you'll leave all of the anti-American whining and Bush bashing back in the Old World.

Other than that...soak it all up, and savor every moment. Safe travels!

"bring me back something french" isn't from Home Alone. They took it from somewhere else. I don't know where though. I do know the phrase was used on a 70's british sitcom called "Are you being served?" but I don't think it was from there either cuz of the audience response to it as a punchline. ::sratches head::
