illy near Philly

Starting to miss Rome a bit as I realize I have to start this new semester in Philly on Tuesday. It's almost like I feel I should be going back abroad instead. Gosh I have done so much moving around in these past few years. I've had 5 semi-permanent homes in 2 different states and 2 different countries, and even had to speak 2 different languages, over the course of 3 years.

What will I do without my espresso every morning?

Which, by the way, I just ran out of. Time to find a US-based Italian espresso producer! Luckily I was able to get these locations for illy near Philly:


  2. WILLIAMS-SONOMA, INC. 200 S. BROAD STREET PHILADELPHIA, PA 19102 Distance: 2.45 miles

  3. KITCHEN KAPERS 213 SOUTH 17TH STREET PHILADELPHIA,PA 19103 Distance: 2.49 miles

Thank goodness I will still be able to get my morning espresso boost, even if I can't enjoy it in my red-and-white cucina italiana.

Polliwog (Lollipop Remix)

Remember Gullah Gullah island? That Nick Jr. television series from the mid-90's? Laura showed me this video today. It was a much-needed relief from work on the Tri-State marketing plan and IBA web design which I have been working on wayy too much in the past few weeks.

One of the best remixes I have ever heard/seen to a music video, haha:

Original song here.

Now back to Disturbia, just ◊ Shut Up and Let Me Go ◊.
