@SniperWulfzen it’s the #sfgmc – always a great show!#

I can never hear the song San Francisco without thinking Fuck Anita Bryant#

Spent the morning talking node.js, now at the #sfgmc concert, tomorrow off to Milan. Yes, this is my life.#

.@jamescmcpherson Video can’t/shouldn’t totally replace the written word, each has its uses.#

Slept some on the plane, but it’s going to take a lot of coffee to convince my body it wants to be awake right now.#

@trochej Glad to do it. #illumos#

Long ago, I’d be disappointed if I arrived at an airport and there was no one to meet me. Then that became routine. But it’s still kinda sad#

Someone dear to me (and to many others) has died: Robert Alter-Alumni-Woodstock School, India #

Bob Alter Book Presentation#

so my site is definitely victim to a weird hack which sometimes shows spam pages. Any ideas?#

Back in Milan for the first time in > 2 years. Feels strange.#

@lucaconti Wow. You are very brave. Please come back alive! #Afghanistan#

#

Why, yes, I am going to torment you with food Sometimes it’s the little stuff that matters, like good bread #


Marinated raw seafood aka Italian ceviche


Pasta wih broccoli and clams. Never had this combo before, very good! #


besides eating lots of good food, spent the evening in conversation, in Italian, wih a former colleague. Warning up those language muscles#

In case you were wondering: yes, it is very, very hard translating technical training on the fly.#

So thanks to a wise friend found out my blog has suffered the pharma hack. Removing it may be beyond my abilities alone, but I’ll have help.#

@billblum Thanks. I think I’d better wait til I’m not collapsing with jetlag to tackle that.#

@rbanffy the downside is you won’t be there to drink with them#

Massive jetlag plus air conditioning outage = about to go to sleep on the table#

Milan doorway #


I hadn’t intended this to be a food tour of Milan, but when knife-cut prosciutto and burrata appear, what ca (cont) http://deck.ly/~HHkVB#

I take my job as hostess very seriously, even when it’s no longer my country (if it ever was, even after 17 years).#

@LusciousPear Well, dammit, now I’m far away!#

@sogrady @vambenepe Absolutely. It’s the teaser to get people to click.#

@Pinboard This might help: http://bit.ly/igqeY8#

Just generated a #TweetCloud, my top words are: people, joyent, time – http://w33.us/9q1g (http://twitpic.com/5f7dna)#

@ryancnelson good for you!#

RT @rosannecash: Happy Birthday, Kris Kristofferson, 75 today. As dear to me as a brother. http://lockerz.com/s/113102378#

This one’s for @jeffreytaylor #


A hard day’s work deserves… a giant mozzarella, flown in fresh from Naples. #

Two branzini and an orata. We ate the orata, or one of its kin. #

Crochette (potatoes n stuff, breaded and fried and YUMMY) #

@jeffreytaylor honestly, BlueBottle is as good – except for the ridiculous lines. and the price.#

@NomdeB it was an outdoor table, otherwise wouldn’t have been a smoking area. But no one was smoking.#

Absolutely miserable with allergies. Probably just as well I’m spending the weekend it Milton Keynes instead of on Lake Como.#

Wedding Vows in days both wretched and joyous, from this day forward, as long as you wish this from me http://bit.ly/jrYR98#

@craigmorgan Oh, I know – have spent a LOT of time there. But it’s where my dad lives (after a lifetime in many more interesting places).#

Allergies so bad I want to claw my eyes out. Now I remember one of the things I hate about Milan.#

Sorry, Netflix is not available in this country yet. At least let me queue up a movie I’d like to watch when I’m back in the US! Sheesh.#

@RaggedPoint Lived in Italy 17 years, it’s all sadly familiar. I know the workarounds, but want it fixed at the source. #netflix#

YouTube – Bryan Cantrill interviewed at Velocity 2011 http://bit.ly/mUdUVO#

Tried to get better allergy drugs, pharmacy closes for 3 HOURS at lunchtime. And you ask if I’m nostalgic for my former life in Italy…?#

.@pfuetz Yes, but as a US-based customer, why not give me access to my movie database from elsewhere, even if I can’t watch til I’m in US?#

.@pfuetz I understand the (stupid) restrictions on viewing the films. All I want to do is queue up something to watch when I’m back in SF.#

@pfuetz Got that. πŸ˜‰#

in Italy, order a cappuccino with your meal. It alerts the waiter that you know what you’re doing http://econ.st/lE1gJk#

Up early, but got ~6 hours of sleep, 3x the night before. Busy day ahead, starting to pack up my stuff at the former family home in Lecco…#

…then ~3 hr schlep to Malpensa to get a 2-hr flight to Luton to visit my dad. Yeah, this is my glamorous biz trip to Italy.#

@NomdeB Don’t know how much I’ll be able to bring, just doing excess baggage. Shipping from Italy ridiculously expensive.#

http://t.co/wWtFsCX#

Milan getting ready for Pride. Sorry I’ll miss it both there and in SF. http://t.co/hwUY7wc#

Milan Central station has had an upgrade, but the trains… http://t.co/FqoMXKh#

Had time to kill at Stazione Centrale in Milan today. Can’t believe I got this photo. #


Very cool purse: upcycled soda can tabs, crocheted together. #

Lecco to Milton Keynes: car + train + train + bus + plane + taxi = 8 HOURS. Europe makes itself feel large by making travel inconvenient.#

@wayfaringrob My dad was a hippie, doen that count?#

Pizzocheri! http://bit.ly/3eI9Pd (and the lady at Taverna ai Poggi remembered me,). #

the UK isn’t any better for my allergies right now, may even be worse. Vacation in the Sahara is beginning to sound very good!#

The Twitter Diaries: June 5-18, 2011 http://bit.ly/iV1uwO#

@willbldrco Right now deep Sahara is sounding pretty good.#

@CommunispaceCEO Maybe because of people who use Google’s search box as their URL bar?#

Yes, I’ve been awake since 3 am. At least in this timezone. No matter, must get up about this time for the next 2 days, + travel, packing.#

@trine Yes, very Norwegian! πŸ˜‰#

added the full photo gallery to: Villa Monastero: Varenna, Lake Como http://bit.ly/bkNp4s#

Trip home already looking like a hassle. 1st leg is on Alitalia, so KLM directs me to their site to check in. And they won’t let me.#

@riccardo_iommi I wish I could say I have missed Italy, but the frustrations still outweigh the joys for me.#

Closing my Italian bank account. They need 3 days to figure out how much money is left and give it back to me. Isn’t this a BANK?…#

…but, in true Italian style, they were accommodating and got it done anyhow.#

my daughter is earning more in her starter job at Apple in Austin than I did in my last job in Milan. Hell YES I wanted her out of Italy!#

Need expert mode for customer service hold lines, to NOT tell me things I already know but cannot do. If I coulda done it myslf, I woulda.#

And to think I used to love traveling.#

4 hrs sleep + 7 hrs travel + 4 hrs packing = desperate need for a nap. Sadly, I am vey bad at napping.#

deeply tired, but will I be able to sleep for the 3.5 hours available to me tonight?#

No athlete, I excel at the travel triathlon: baggage pack and lift, airport dash, seat collapse.#

The Dutch have a charming habit of assuming that I am Dutch. But then, so do the Germans, English, Scots… Everyone except Americans!#

This is more like it. Thanks @KLM – trip not a hassle after all. That upgrade was very well timed. http://t.co/uZqJtO4#

Trip far better than feared, on most fronts. But glad and relieved to be home.#

@ditucci @nonstick O gonna pay you the same regardless, if you’re already an employee anyway#

I feel a bit out of focus. Too much to process from this trip. Thankful for jetlag – takes the edge off.#

Summary of my visit to Italy: good friends, great food, but I don’t miss living there. In so many ways, I need more than la dolce vita…#

…I couldn’t afford la dolce vita anyway. What I had was hardly dolce – and this is true for most ordinary Italians http://bit.ly/ifORts#

.@NomdeB Very true. It’s never been US vs Italy (or anywhere else) but where can I have the most of what makes me happy in one place?#

Of course we all know that in the Real Italy, everyone sings opera all the time http://bit.ly/cxCt6t#

.@NomdeB Wait til you see my apartment in SF. πŸ˜‰ I like living small – less to clean, less unnecessary crap because there’s just no room.#

Jetlag does weird things to me. Was’nt hungry most of the day, then bolted down Chipotle tacos, chips, guac, & an entire Lindt pistachio bar#

If I can’t clear my site of the pharma hack, I’ll be faced with the interesting challenge of getting traffic without search engines.#

…and/or the search engines will need to get smart enough to realize that I don’t write about (ahem) male enhancement drugs.#
