That would be me, Mrs. Moglie. Married to a native Italian, Mr. Marito.
Mother to a daughter in high school, Ms. SmartyPants and a son in middle school, Mr. Uometto.
Employed at a private British School as an English teacher and Coordinator of Children's Studies.
Part of a small, but growing Protestant church in Frascati, a small town in the hills just outside of Rome.


This is where I sometimes gripe, complain and grumble about the things I dislike, have yet to get used to or simply don't understand about bella Italia.
I do, however, have many people, places and things that I dearly love and I am more than aware of being blessed by each and every one of them.
Also - a few helpful posts for visitors to Rome or for newly arrived ex pats. Check the side bar for tags. I've even some recipes that I've borrowed, tweaked or invented. One thing I've come to love about Italy is how it's changed the way I eat - slow food !! Although ... I do miss Taco Bell ... and Jack in The Box ... and KFC ... and ::sigh::
Thanks for stopping by !!

Outreach Team, Italian Gesticulation and Facebook

Last Sunday, the 28th of November, we had a visiting missionary team from Calvary Chapel's Bible College in Vajta, Hungary. These guys are ridiculously funny and so in love with the Lord. Most of them are originally from the US, one is from Canada and one's from down under, that is, Australia ^.^

We had such a fun time with them doing outreach, late night runs for gelato and here, below, they show us the proper Italian way to say, "What in the world are you talking about?!" 

Ma che stai a dì?!
As it turns out, one of the fellas has been to visit us before.
he said : We've met before, I'm Mr. T - I was here last summer.
I said : Oh ... sorry, I don't remember. *nope, nothing, nada, zip
he said : I helped with the Lifehouse skit at Calvary Chapel Rome. I was here with my dad, Mr. S ...
I said : hmm ... yeah ... um ... I ... sorry.

pause

he said : um ... you know, we're friends on Facebook.
