For anyone, if there is anyone, that reads this blog or receives my emails with any regularity you might realize that here in Rome I’m only pretty happy. I feel sad sometimes, a little lonely, I miss my friends, I’m alienated etc etc. However the good news is this Christmas I received a Playstation and realized that none of that shit really matters anymore. All that matters is mastering FIFA ’06 in time for the world cup this summer, and playing some of the vast array of games available for me to live in. I now have my own digital entertainment bubble. When I say “get lost” I don’t mean it in a harsh way, only in a “i’m over it” kinda way. This must be how Columbeus felt after he discovered his new world: “Get lost, Old World, I have whole new lands to exploit. You’re sooo 1491.”
