I just thought you all should know that Jimmy is on ANOTHER business trip, and this one truly pisses me off! Where is he, you ask? Well, un bastardo is in ITALIA!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, the home of MY people and he gets to go for the second time since April, and again in first class no less! A week in Italy just to test out a big old machine that they need to use in the states. Looky at the map there. He's about 1/2" below Switzerland, and nearly directly below Milan, in a small city called Pavia. He tells me there's not much to do there but eat, but you know damn well that if I were there I'd be finding some major shopping to do, whether I had to hitch to Milan to do it or not!
So for five days he and his coworkers get to cavort around Pavia while they're not staring at a big dumb machine, and get to eat 3-hour meals of delicioso food that they don't have to pay for. Now let us add insult to injury, because for one night they're staying in a luxury hotel on the canal in Venice!!!!!!!!! Bastardo! Vaffanculo cazzo!!!!!!!!!!!
And what is just a wee bitty boat ride away from Venezia? None other than the island of Murano where they blow the glass in the factory where you can watch! Oh my, I'm getting all veklempt. There, now I've added some Jewish slang to my Italian. That's it! Stick a fork in me, I'm finito!!!!!!!!!!
Until next time, Justine :o )
