Back in action

Today was busy day full of getting things out of storage, and getting my electronic "nimbus" (as a priest friend calls it) set up again.

I had lunch with two great priests who are USN chaplains (for me: buccatini dell’amatriciana followed by a nice caprese of mozerella di bufala washed down by Frascati) and supper tonight with a Holy Cross Father friend in town for a bit (pretty simple: we had a bis of fettucine and funghi porcini and rigatoni with a covering made up of eggplant, guanciale, and a touch of asparagus; the great thing was that both the fettucine and (!) the rigatoni were fresh, and not dried; ever had fresh rigatoni? The wine was a highly structured bomb of a Sicilian La purezza. *whew*).

I have now hooked everything up again, pretty much. I can’t get my new wireless router to synch properly with my things, however, including my new wi-fi phone, so I reverted to my older router. Some day next week when I am better rested I will get that solved. Another gadget problem to solve!

    Father Z: Now that you’re connected again, I wonder whether you intend to post your Wanderer 10/10=9/2006 column on the super oblata (2) for the 29th Sunday of OT? (Hmm … no internet access from your Airbus over the Atlantic Sunday?) I was planning on including a link to it in a Wednesday newsletter this week to some local Latin Mass folks.

    Have you ever eaten at Walter’s? It’s near Campo Marzio.

    Any chance of giving us the names of some of the restaurants you frequent in the Eternal City?

  12. It depends on what I am about, really. For normal meals I very much like “Polese” and a place with the unlikely name “L’Isola della pizza”. “Er facciolaro” isn’t bad. A nice spot for lunch is “La danesina”. For Chinese I must suggest either “Mr. Chow” or “Il drago d’oro”. For something a little nicer, there is “da Pietro” on the V. Germanico, or “da Fortunato” near the Pantheon. There is a place nearby names “Pietro” for all things truffle. For seafood I am very picky: “da Benito” in the Borgo is great.
