100 Blogs in 100 Days

I can't believe it!
The Blog Herald featured little me in their 100 Blogs in 100 Days and of course it had to be my luck that it happened while I was away and I missed it. So here it is: Day 45: All Kinds of Writing.

My first reaction was jubilation naturally, but then I couldn't stop laughing (still am) at my luck. How could I not? I was featured on The Blog Herald, as Milly, while I was on a few different excruciating flights. That's me. Always a day late...

Oh, well. At least I'm featured and I even got the whopping number of five (that's 5!) visits from the Herald.

Must be my punishment for harassing the nice sales lady for half an hour yesterday when I was in the Milan airport about the right kind of Limoncello and grappa. Not to mention how I raided the Lindt sales guys who just kept giving me more samples (or was it me demanding more samples?). And they all had that adorable Italian accent.

Alas, Italy wasn't my final destination, but I'm here and I'm connected and I hope to have a more meaningful post by the end of the day. In fact, I started writing one on the plane, but the plane had an "engineering problem" and the lights went out, including the movie screen. So there I was, without a light to read or a movie to watch and with my laptop out of juice. I ended up staring at the back of the seat in front of me for over four hours. No wonder I took my frustration out later at the duty free.

Thank you all for coming to visit while I was away and commenting on my new template. I see I still have some work to do...

Raising a Limoncello glass now - To Friends!

Welcome back :) I hope you had a nice little Holiday (I'm anxiously waiting for my Thanksgiving! A few days off sounds wonderful).

That's awesome about being posted on the Blog Herald.

Mmmm. Men with Italian accents. I'm writing naughty movies in my head.

Small mind...

Congratulations, Melly! :) It sounds like you had a good time, despite the engineering problems.

Melly? In Europe??! How come I wasn't informed?! :)

PS: congrats for being featured on the Blog Herald! Are we allowed to feel a tiny bit jealous? ;-)
