...and the guy that played Garak also played Liberace (which sounds Italian).

Obsidian? Seriously? Do they *want* the kid to hate them? As the future Auntie of this kid, I think it's your moral duty to change their minds and help them see the error of their ways!!!!! Think of your poor, defenseless niece/nephew!

Sounds like fun. I prefer paper maps myself.

All I keep thinking of is here's Count Obsidian, Lord of the Underworld, right hand man to Anubis. Yes, he has a jackal's head and a federal identification number, why do you ask?

My plan so far: First, I've made her feel guilty and bad for me that my sister didn't accept any suggestions for baby names (though on their own they came up with Charlotte, so pretty good) and so my friend Jamie has agreed that I can keep making suggestions. My second step, I text her two or three baby names throughout the day and I'm just hoping some of them stick. I've done Topaz and Opal and Ruby, which, you know, whatever, but I'm also throwing in some other theme names. I did flowers one day and cities one day. Her husband has said no Disney names (freak) like Belle. Fine. So I've done Alice and Wendy and Peter and Christopher. Maybe one of those will slide under his Disney radar. Plus, all of Jamie's brothers and sisters have J names, so keeping with that theme I've done Jane and Jack (no Jasmine 'cause of the Disney thing) Fingers crossed she's not just humoring me.

Matt: Safe travels tomorrow! Enjoy your land/sea package! Make sure to try all of the gelato so you can give good recs when we get there.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

I'm starting to do some packing preliminaries and the list making has begun in earnest.
I hate having to decide what I want to wear 19 days from now. I can barely wrap my mind about what I want to wear when I get up each day.
One thing is for sure ... I don't do laundry in the bathroom sink, so having the right amount of "unmentionables" is a priority.

I've at least got the bags out so the cats will get used to seeing them out. I pretty much just pack everything I own. That way I don't forget anything.

Thanks! Am now in Adelaide, Australia at possibly the worst Hilton in the world (I know thats a big call).

Anything that isn't in the bag/s now isn't coming to italy, I will see home again in a months time.

No problems trying all the gelato in the world - I started at Sydney Airport last night...

I just spent some time talking Italy with a co-worker that studied there. She's sending me recommendations on restaurants...including one that "was the best meal she's ever had".

Can't believe that two weeks from now I will be waiting out my layover in Charlotte for the final leg to Rome.

The 2 week realization hit me today as well. Don't know if I can wait.
