If not now, when?

One American woman. Twenty acres and a 1650 farmhouse in Tuscany. Random introspection and hilarity, depending on the day.

06 September 2005


Aaaaah, since this tiny corner of the web has become a (totally dysfunctional of course) community of sorts, it's fair to interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for an important announcement.

People change. Times change. Lives change. and, therefore, blog nicknames change.

Our dear friend formerly (and TOTALLY justifiably!) known as 'Chickie' will now henceforth be referred to as 'UBlend'.

This rare nick-changing is taking place after a week-plus long joint roadtrip in France & Italy, during which at many points he wore: a Superman logo baseball cap, white running shoes, a bright red TAB t-shirt, a plaid CocaCola pullover jacket, and (GASP!) pleated khaki pants, a backpack, (I think at *least* once all at the same time?!?), and did everything except sing the star spangled banner in restaurants. Prompting, of course, my recollection of that scene from My Cousin Vinny (one of my favorite movies of all time):

Joe Pesci as Vinny Gambini: "You stick out like a sore thumb around here."
Marisa Tomei as Mona Lisa Vito: "Me? What about you?"
Vinny : "I fit in better than you. At least I'm wearin' cowboy boots."
Lisa (with all the New Yawker sarcasm she can muster): "Oh yeah, you blend."
(Would that I could embed video here.)

And now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
