We're All Going On A Summer Holiday

We finally picked up our new car yesterday. A Fiat 500, naturally. so today we’re grabbing a ferry and heading across to Sardinia (a place that is actually closer to Africa than it is to Italy, trivia fans).

We have absolutely nothing planned except to chill on beaches and maybe do a little snorkeling. And since we’ve got a car and I won’t be breaking my back carrying luggage, I’m bringing all those huge doorstep books that have been clogging up my “to read” list, like Anathem and Infinite Jest. If I don’t manage to finish at least one of those, it’s God’s way of telling me I was never meant to read them.

Back in a week. Peace out, suckers.
