six letters, determined by the above rhyme. (clue: it's actually two words but still six letters in total0
what a crap riddle that was.
I am not up to full speed yet.
(even if it's mostly an acrostic). Kudos!
Got total art gallery fatigue, but I love all that stuff, and it was brilliant going around with my friends who are studying it all. Good food too - the best pizza I've ever had. I wish I wasn't back here. Nice to hear (read) all your voices again though. Is that sad?
I was wondering why he was saying ciao if he went to France.
you're on the ball today.
"Sir, I from Florence."
"And that's in France, you idiot!"
I've been using it as bye
"I am your servant"
"Screw you, Sealion-breath"
no wonder that sexy, hirsute italian man grabbed my boob.
I'll say anything to get them to touch my boob.
Any advances during my time away? I'm living vicariously through you.
No advances whilst you've been okay but we are going out on Saturday which will be quite nice!
Anything happening with you? Meet any nice french girls?
The friends who I stayed with are doing an art history course, and we went out with some of the other students on a couple of nights. They were all really rich and posh, but quite nice. I got chatting to one who seemed really smart and mature, and then it turned out she was in Florence on her gap year, before applying to Oxford. She was 18! It made me feel so old.
They sounds quite sophisticated. 18 though? Even though i'm only 22, meeting people of 18 is so odd. I don't really remember being like that when I was 18. This girl sounds mature though so thats good!
If you afford to spend thousands of pounds on learning art history with no actual qualification at the end of it, you're bound to be.
She was nice, we haven't kept in touch or anything though. Hypothetically though, I don't think a 5-year age gap is that weird (I'm 23). But she did have a whole different attitude to a lot of things (she thinks the Phantom Menance was a good film), and when I realised that I was sitting my finals when she was doing her GCSEs, it is a bit odd...
Any actual romantice stuff, I ain't going to talk about on the boards. Enjoy your date though - it wasn't actually a Disser, was it?
yeah, you're on the borderline there, son :)
1) She considers Harry Potter to be a great work of fiction (this cannot be blamed entirely on her age).
2) Her middle name is Araminta.
3) When asked why she was applying for her paticular Oxford college, she replied: "Oh, because that's where my father went. And my grandfather."
I think I could get on with some posh totty, but you have to draw the line somewhere.
Anyway, there was also this well posh half Irish half French girl with the most amazing accent ever who was 24, but she was also a bit moody and mental.
Now, I should probably stop reminiscing about girls I have met once and will never meet again.
My last boyfriend was 12 years older than me and it didn't bother me in the slightest as we met in the middle, mentally. It is a bit odd when you think about things like that though.
Understandable. I won't talk about personal stuff on here but sometimes its just nice to say.
Erm...he may post on here. I wont say his username though as its VERY early days.
Very, very good.
also: "My nipples explode with delight!"
Ca't believe I've let myself get dragged into this thread.
When speaking to Italians?
Usually walking away from someone, whilst flicking my hand over my shoulder and going "ciao!"
Have you found it yet?
I dragged my friend along. It was incredible. Well, it was pretty shit, but that sort of added to it. Full-scale wax works of Albert Fish, Charlie Manson, and best of all, John Wayne Gacy as a clown popping out of the floorboards... It was clearly done a shoestring budget, but the passion was there. I was going to bring you a souvenir but they didn't really have any. I picked up some fliers you can have though.
That's brilliant you found it...I think it's the oddest thing to have in Florence. Haha I hope you took a photo of Gacy popping out of the floor boards! Amazing stuff.
You know that wax work place in Blackpool that's sometimes in the papers because it's so bad? It was kind of like that. You basically had to rely on their clothes and the top trump-style cards nexst to them (Victims: 44 / Motive: Lust, dominance / Method: Strangling) to work out who they were.
That has made my day.
Though I could have sworn there was one in Blackpool too...
Which Flemish-born mannerist sculpture who worked predominately in Florence during the 16th century enjoyed having fruit preserves on his spaghetti?
It's the way I tell 'em.
POBWJO (plate of bolognese with jam on)
dear god, i need to quit the internet
it's much more difficult these days, now you can't just change your password to something like zsd90876n4s2ndsSRs and then log out
As if my colleagues didn't think I was strange enough :)
You're on the right tracks...
but bologna's not pasta
So it works.
He's a fucking boss sculptor, by the way.
Hot, full of flavour, and absolutely dripping sauce.
University Challenge question, surely?
Michaelangelo, Donatello... any of the Turtles, fine. Giambologna might be a bit out there though.
Works on SO MANY levels*
you've missed all this nonsense haven't you?
Worshipped the god of facepalm far too often recently
I would never ever have remembered that. "Hiya you dick. You love bread with jam on you dick." I'm sure I found that massively amusing at the time. Sorry.
