What I did on my summer vacation (don't tell my teacher!)
In homage to old back to school assignments, in just one sentence tell us: “What did you do on your summer vacation?” Have fun with it – feel free to tell us things you would never have dared tell your teacher. Could be true or just make it up!
In my summer vacation there were many projects I had no idea how to do.So my parents did most of them! My teacher thought it was I who did it!

In July I visited Verona (Italy) in July with my husband and kids (age 5 and 7) where we saw the famous balcony where Romeo talked to his Julia and as a result the kids begged me all summer long to tell the love-story again and again, I think I have told it now over a hundred times and they still want more....

I've been to 19th century Italy and on a ship traveling to America. I learned much about the Italian-American experience thanks to Laurie Fabiao, Elizabeth Street.
I traveled from Hong Kong to America: Jean Kwok, Girl in Translation.
I learned about infant abandonment in Italy in the 1800's: Sacrificed for Honor and Amalia's Tale, David I. Kertzer.
I laughed and learned a lot about the gay community with David Sedaris, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and I read every one of his books!
I've toured the world thanks to Daily Lit's Wikapedia Tour and learned a little bit about a lot of subjects.
I've been all around Sweden, and sat at Harry's Bar off Main Street in Gibralter drinking Tullamore Dew with Lisbeth Salander: Thanks to Stieg Larsson, I learned so much about child abuse and women's rights.
I've cooked many meals in kitchens around the world with famous authors! How great is that! Thanks to Megan Halpern and Daily Lit.

I hooked up with some unsavory characters, pillaged a tiny hamlet, read "Hamlet," toured Japan with my new band "The Rollicking Rollovers," ate nothing but crackers and ramen, spent 30 days in the clink for impersonating someone with a 160 IQ, then came home to my little place in Austin to find it overrun by wild dogs, feral cats, and something called a liger.
