“When I started making those weird voices, a lot of people told me how whack it was,” she says, “‘What the fuck are you doing?’ they’d say. ‘Why do you sound like that? That doesn’t sound sexy to me.’ And then I started saying, Oh, that’s not sexy to you? Good. I’m going to do it more. Maybe I don’t want to be sexy for you today.”

Mistaken for European while in Europe.
It helps to wear mostly black/neutrals, have dark hair, and a fairly ambiguous “look” (mixed Asian and white but with a jewish nose [i can say it if it’s mine]).
So far I’ve gotten Italian twice, and Spanish twice.
Frank throws off my game …. I’m pretty sure if he didn’t wear a baseball hat during the daytime, I’d have better luck!

Dad had open heart surgery on 9/15 (it was planned, not a surprise which is good).
To say it’s “hard” to be across the world on my honeymoon is not right- it’s more along the lines of, I wish I could be in two places at once.
He had a really rough first night. He was a huge amount of pain with his heart rate going below what it’s supposed to, and the night nurse was not quickly responsive. He said he’s doing a little better, so that is good but of course I am very worried. I know he wants me to enjoy myself- which I am!- but when I sit and think for more than a few minutes, I worry.
So if anyone has a spare good wish or thought and can project it towards my dad and his recovery, that would be wonderful. Xoxo.

“All your questions can be answered, if that is what you want. But once you learn your answers, you can never unlearn them.”

I read American Gods over the first leg of our honeymoon, and it’s still rolling around in my head. I am not entirely sure I fully digested it. Anyways: I liked it a lot and am going to read up on it to hopefully help me to grasp a bit more. I might even consider rereading it at some point (like over Thanksgiving or Christmas). I picked it up because I had seen it floating around the internet because it’s being made into a tv show for Starz. I’m into that idea.

I didn’t believe it until I achieved it: there is such a thing as too much food and too much wine.

Is forcing yogurt and granola down your throat before going to the Vatican, after I was advised to not visit hungry… And because me being hungry anywhere is just unpleasant for everyone.
