Of Writing and Love Struck Spiders

I can’t write.  Well, not in the tradition pen and paper sense.

Honestly, if you were ever to have the misfortune of  seeing my dire handwriting, you would probably run away screaming and feeling confused.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

About the only being likely to find my handwriting even moderately attractive would be a female spider in search of a mate.  This poor deluded lady-spider might just about mistake my illegible scrawl for the love poem of some amorous male of the spider species.

Thanks be to computers and their neat keyboards, is what I say.  Some of my readers though, may well wish that I had never discovered computers or the joys of blogging!

Sorry, if I write too much.

Can You Guess Who this Famous Italian is?

Quiz: Guess the Italian – Part 2

The second in this series of quiz posts featuring cut down and distorted images of famous Italians for you to guess.

This Guess the Italian Quiz is just for fun and to see what people who are not Italian know about Italians. While Italians are welcome to have a go, I’d prefer it if they gave those who are not Italian a chance to guess.

Thanks Italians!
