viva italia






erica and i went to north beach today. you wouldn't have known it was fourth of july for all the italian flags up. it was also the italians in the world cup soccer match today, which we didn't realize before deciding to go to north beach, not being espn types. that place was crazy with mad, happy italians watching soccer and cheering. we ate at the checkered sidewalk restaurant (which i've always wanted to go to cuz it is so euro) and listened to the waves of cheers coming down the street from the bars. funny. i love how italian sounds.

we also saw wordplay. it's good. i recommend it. bill clinton is in it. i miss that guy.

snapped the above photo of the bruno's bar sign in the mission. the sign is so orange and brown and the letters are so fat. very satisfying.

went to the sean hayes/jolie holland show a couple days ago. jolie has such a riveting voice, but i have to say it feels like going home seeing sean. so good to see/listen to. he has a new site too.

oh I love jolie holland and that big fatass letter! Was Ms Holland very moody? she was in a right old mood last time I saw her, no eyecontact and everything.

when I went to go watch fireworks over the Hudson river yesterday all these people had Italian flags and I had no idea what was going on. It took a few minutes to realize they were all cheering for the world cup..haha...guess I am not too up on my sports.

I loved that the italians won against Germany! But tonight - THE BIG FINAL - I'll be routing (rooting?) for the french (surprise!...) and Zidane!

Allez les bleus! :-)
