Honestly, is anyone else watching the Anna Nicole case unfold. The judge is having a field day in that court room. I happen to catch a bit of the trial today on FOXNews and I was amazed at some of the comments the judge was making. I have been in court many times and I have never heard a judge carry on the way this judge is carrying on. For some reason I don't by the mother's story. She was not believable to me today when she was on the stand. Especially when she was speaking about not receiving money from the media for her stories. I hope this story ends soon. I also thing this judge is interviewing for his own television show, what the hell is that? It has become a circus, a show only known to hollywood. Without a doubt this is bizarre case. It is funny that everyone is dancing around the word "drugs" they have been using the word "perscription". The judge is the fact finder in this case because there is no judge. I think the judge takes a liking to Vergie and Birkhead. This is a dead serious case, sorry no pun intented.

So today I decided to put some of my teaching skills to work. I have a client who speaks very little English so I decided to start practicing my teaching with him. It was actually very rewarding to teach and I enjoyed the joy that he got out of learning the English language. I will continue to meet with him once a week as that is all the time I can give at this moment.
I guess teaching English might not be so bad after all:)

Anna Nicole Smith

Why am I so hooked on this story? Her story is very sad to me. She died under such horrific circumstances. Whether she died of a drug overdose, was addictive to drugs, lived a promiscuous lifestyle she is still a human being. I am appalled by all the media attention her death is receiving. The question as to where she should be laid to rest should not have gone on for this long. There are so many parties who through this long drawn out process is making a shit load of money. The longer the proceedings go on the more ching, ching, individuals are collecting. Let the woman rest in peace already!

A dream!

Last night I had a very interesting dream, a dream that included my father. As you all know it is always hard to recall your dreams. I don't know the exact details but I know someone identified as "daddy" was in my dream. BTW, I don't know who my father is and I have no memory of him:( It has always been a goal of mine to locate my father so that my children would know there grandfather. So what I decided to do this morning, I called the JA consulate in Toronto and asked for direction in obtaining my birth certificate. By requesting my BC I would be able to get my father's name, as I do not know it. Once I get his name then I can start my search in JA and where ever else I have to go. I have some family and other contacts in JA so I am asking that they start the search with me. All we know is his last name which is no longer my last name as my mother went to JA in the early 90's to change my last name. I felt very compelled to start the process now. I had originally decided to put it off until I move over seas but something in that dream made me start the process sooner. I could ask my mamma for his name but I just don't want to go there with her. We talk about everything else but HIM, you know what I mean?


Yesterday I told you guys about salmon Sundays. I have to report that the salmon did not taste too good last night, it was eatable but it was just not the same as other Sundays. And I am not able to figure out why the salmon taste different......i have to ask the expert, my mamma.

Salmon Sundays!

Since my late teens, early adulthood my mother always made salmon on Sundays. She has a special way of making the salmon in the oven and then tops it off with the best made white rice. I love white rice and I love salmon. So since, I have been living on my own, I have adopted "salmon Sundays". Which means, every Sunday I make salmon w/ white rice. Each Sunday the salmon taste different. It depends on how long I cook the salmon, usually no more than 12-15mins, where I purchased the salmon and how much I paid for it. I try to purchase the best salmon how I do that? well I ask the guy behind the counter. I expect that he will sell me a good one. The rice usually cooks the same as I have had the same bag of rice since I moved here in 2005. That's not a bad thing is it? I eat a lot of rice but not that much.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Well Valentine's day is about to end in a few hours and really I am not feeling any different than I was feeling yesterday. I know that every day is a special day for my BF and I so this day is no more special than every other day he has been in my life.
I remember when I was younger I always wanted to have the perfect Valentine's day with whom ever I was with, if anybody. I wanted the roses, the chocolates, the diamonds etc, now as I have gotten older the meaning is different. Today I witnessed many men buying million dollar roses for their partners/mistress and thought to myself, why? Why must woman get roses on Valentine's day? why not just every day a woman/man could be appreciated for loving and being loved. We all know the answer to that.

Toronto had its first big snow fall today. It was wonderful, I would have taken some pics but I was too busy at work today. And now the snow is all brown from the slush and dirt so it is no longer pretty. Will I miss the snow when I am in Italy? probably, as I have become so used to it.

30 days....uggghhhhh

Well Chicco will not have his high speed for another 30 days. He called the company today and they said it would take an additional 30 days for his Internet to be back in full swing. I guess we have to tolerate the dial-up for now. It could be worse he could have no Internet at all...
I explained to him that if the internet company did to me what they have done to him here in Canada I would switch to anther company. His response was "it would be longer if I was to switch companies". Do they not know about customer service? My internet provider get's a mouth full when my internet is down for more than 1minute. Yes i know, I am a bitch. But I am hugh on customer service. How will I navigate the customer service gals and fellows if I cannot speak the language? Oh I will find a

Howdie, nothing new to report on this end. Actually the only thing is that it is VERY cold in Toronto. We are apparently getting a big snow storm from America (damn Americans) tomorrow night. I love the snow as long as its not too cold.
Chicco is good. I love him more and more each day. His high speed connection is down, so he is currently using dial up. Dial-up in Italy is awful, I wish that on no one. So our communication is not the same, the images on messenger freezes and we have to talk as our speech is chopped up. It's like not talking to him, that's how I feel when we are speaking. I miss you baby.

How is everyone? Chicco surprised me today with a lot of good news and I thought I would share with the world.
1) a package I sent to him a few weeks ago for valentines day has arrived. The funny thing is that the card arrived two days after I posted it but the box was missing. However today he received it and he will open the box on Valentine's day.
2) It really is who you know in Italy....that is all I can say as I don't want to jinx anything.

Super Bowl

So I managed to watch the super bowl with my family last night. My mamma prepared chili, drum sticks, fish cakes and lovely desserts. It was a wonderful time with family watching the game. I lost 50.00 dollars as I was hoping for Chicago to win...damn it! and how upset was I that in Canada we did not see any of the American commercials.
What will it be like this time next year when I am not able to watch the super bowl. It's been part of my life as long as I can remember...I guess next year I will know...
