And then he went on: "yeah I'm on call that day (during 24hrs we can be called to visit guys arrested by the police in the area, night and day) and I can't do it so I'm looking for someone who would like to switch their day with mine".

OMG I had to bite my tongue in order not to laugh
And after that call I went straight to the office of my co-worker and told her the story, and she was ROTFL as well Damn the guy has his very own way to start convos I tell you!!

(on a second thought, if he wanted to change his day that's probably to celebrate V-Day. Fuck him )
That's just cruel. See, this is one of the many reasons I hate Valentine's Day. Because of shit like this.

Welcome back, Anna Banana!! (I won't laugh at you for tearing up over Rafaello's grave, since I did the same when I saw Hadja Sofia in Istanbul. I'm a loser.)

So Thursday morning (which was his bday) I woke him up at 5 am and he was like WTF and I told him he needs to get up coz we have quite a long way to travel. He was totally huh???

I made him breakfast and gave him a sweet bday card and then put out clothes for him to wear which were definitely not February Moscow clothes and shoes So he started getting suspicious

Then the taxi arrived and when we got in the driver asked where we were going and I said Sheremetyevo airport. That is when Dima started getting mega excited

So then we arrived and I went for check-in and that's when he saw which counter I was heading to and went totally

He really was too cute but he was even cuter IN Rome. He was like a kid on Xmas, so happy and soooo loving everything around him, was adorable

Favourite spot in Rome? Are you kidding me? My favourite spot is ROME!

I'd pick three if I had to choose.

1. Piazza Venezia. We went on that super duper elevator which takes you on top of the Vittoriano building and you have a panoramic view of the whole city which is to die for

2. Vatican. For a breathtaking interior and art collection. Sistine Chapel is way too overwhelming, I couldn't help gasping every 2 seconds

3. Pantheon. Don't laugh but I actually shed a tear when I saw Raffaello's grave I adore him and his work and it was just too emotional for me.

But all of Rome is pure magic
That's so adorable Annie!

awww
But that was funny though. First it scared me because since I don't know him well I was like "WTF?! what the hell is he going to ask me? "

Later that night I complimented Vass on his beautiful hand () and he said "thanks but I won't be your valentine". Apparently Monday was the "Guess-what?-although-you-didn't-ask-no-I-won't-be-your-valentine" day for me

Re: THE GATHERING OF THE SAFINHOLICS

Hi All ... Happy Valentines or Anti-Valentines Day, whichever one you support

I got all inspired yesterday and went for a half hour jog last night and then did an hour of pilates this morning ... usually I'd be fine, but I am lying on the couch, completely knackered ... to further inflict pain and suffering, my neighbour's cooking a gorgeous curry and my taste buds are going crazy, so I'll probably drown in my own saliva at any moment (for once it won't be because of a near-nekkid picture of The Saf!)

Have a good day peeps

==========================================
M A R A T
S A F I N

==========================================

Don't cry because it's over ...
be happy because it happened.

Oh maaan, all this Rome talk made me wish the 76 days remaining to my trip there to pass faster and faster ( not that I'm counting the days )

Happy V-Day, Mush. Ah, curry... It's just like Marat, only you can order it. And it comes in 15 minutes.

Re: THE GATHERING OF THE SAFINHOLICS

Mashenka I was on a 3 week trip to Italy with my parents back in 1993 and visited Rome but just for one day so this time it was much better and I got much fresher emotions
