I'm back! I've, so far, have had a fantastic holiday. I go back to school on Monday, and I'm going to spend my last few days of break resting, hanging out with my family, writing thank-you-notes, and eating. Because it's not a holiday if you're not eating, I always say. My mama is making baked mac and cheese on New Year's Eve, per the request of Will and me, along with some hotdogs.
Will and I have extraordinarily elegant tastes, no?
Wow, this post is so easy to type. My fingers are just flying.... everything's so natural... why would that be? Oh yes. Because guess what Santa left under the tree for little old me? A new laptop. You've heard me moan about the mostly-broken nature of my Dell, and I am now a proud owner of a 13 inch MacBook Pro. I strongly recommend this exact computer to, well, anyone. And I'm lucky to have my big brother here to help me set it all up. He's a computer whiz, that fellow.
Our stay in Tuscany was bellissima. The most beautiful place I've ever seen! It was a villa on an olive farm, and we got to see an olive oil factory.
Now that I know how they make supermarket olive oil compared to the real stuff, I don't think I will ever want to use Bertolli ever, ever again.
I'll have some pictures of the whole shebang for you later, but for now I must go to sleep. The villa was a little dusty, and Pasta and Waffles is highly allergic to dust mites. Because of this, I've been snuffling, sneezing, and coughing all week, and it will probably take a few days to get all of this out of my lungs and for my skin to quit itching. But I don't really care, because, overall, the trip was amazing.
I hope you all had a great Christmas as well, and I'll get back to you soon.
