I generally try to keep things positive here on ye olde blogge, as I know we've all got our problems and that in the big picture, mine are pretty puny, but I still have to say: yesterday was rough. Yes, even with my faaaabulous traveling lifestyle, sometimes I still have those days, where no amount of incredible weather, spectacular scenery, or blissful joblessness can pull me out of my funky mood.
It started (as most of my days do) when I got dressed; we had our laundry done yesterday (Which, sidenote: awesome. I want to always drop off my dirties in the morning and pick up cleans in the evening.) so my options were pretty limited. Unfortunately, the sweater-dress and tights combo I wound up choosing managed to leave me both overdressed (WAY too stinkin' hot) and underdressed (a little short-of-hemline for churches), so I was uncomfortable and crabby all morning. Top that off with having my requests to eat lunch ignored so long that I was half-dizzy with hunger, then discovering that all the lunch places in North Roma are closed at 4pm, and THEN getting ripped off (for one stupid euro!) buying a pathetic 'lunch' of potato chips and Coke (regular, ugh!) at the only bar we could find that was actually open. Although by the time we took these photos we had (mostly) made up from our (numerous) fights of the day, I will admit that any smiles in these pictures are at least 50% faking it.
Oh well. Fortunately today was much, much better, and tomorrow's looking good too.
(And for all my fellow architecture nerds: We took these photos in Renzo Piano's Parco della Musica. Except for the last one, which we took outside Zaha Hadid's Maxxi Museum. And yet I was still cranky.)
