The day’s round up

I went with an Italian friend to see Flags of Our Fathers today, which opened in Rome (in English).

Afterward we bought slices and chunks of wondrous things and bottles to wash them down. Joining us was an English priest who is in our residence.

Among the goodies consumed were olives from Gaeta, a stout percorino, some gorgonzola, prosciuto di San Daniele, sopressata "Romana", some great little spicy peppers stuffed with tuna under oil, and a very nice sagrantino for the washing down purposes. It was fine. We enjoyed music from Johnny Cash to J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations.

    If I brought candy bar to the theater here in Florida, never mind a can of sardines, they would throw me out into the street! Once I went to a dinner/show in Orlando (It was ‘Fiddler on the Roof’), and the show started after we ate. There was no eating or drinking allowed during the performance. I’m glad cause I couldn’t deal with all the glass clinking and smells . . .!

  2. Speaking of Roman treats: Fr. Z, have you ever had the “pizza hebraeca” (Hebrew pizza) from a little Jewish pastry shop just behind the Synagogue? It’s actually a dessert, but it is awesome. If you haven’t you should try it. It is a bit pricey, but man is it good.

  3. Dcn John: Maybe I am missing something here. Are you under the impression we ate in the theater during the movie? Read again. I can assure you that Flags Of Our Fathers wasn’t even a pop-corn movie, much less all that other stuff.

  4. Roman Sacristan: I haven’t been over that way for a while. I will check it out a time allows.

    Father,how was the film?Did it depict the heroic efforts of the Navy chaplains administering Extreme Unction to the dying Marines?Thank you and God bless you.

  6. Dan Hunter: Not a chaplain in sight, alas. They focused, rather, on the corpsmen (medics).

    Is that the same pastry shop that sells chocolate chip cookies?

    Yesterday, I saw a bumper sticker with the marine corps emblem on it. The words: DEATH FROM NATURAL CAUSES IS FOR WIMPS.
