Super Bowl Sunday/ Very late post

Posted in friends, life, people, sports on February 16, 2010 by Robin Eller

Okay I was wrong “D.” The Saints won. It’s a good thing I’m not a betting person. 🙂  My friend was crying. Ha!! The worst part of the SuperBowl, those commercials and that awful Half-time show. Did the dig the Who out of their grave to sing?? Mamma Mia! I was shocked to hear Carrie Underwood sing the Star Spangled Banner so flat. She’s always spot on with her singing. Goes to show once again: Nessuno e’ perfetto.  I’m happy for “D’ that the Saints won. Now it’s back to the NBA action. Will it be the Lakers or Cleveland this year?? Chissa`.

Super Bowl Sunday

Posted in friends, life, people, sports on February 8, 2010 by Robin Eller

Being a sports fan, I’ll hang out today and watch the Super Bowl. Sadly, I have never been emotionally attached to any team. I do have a friend who is a “die-hard” SAINTS fan, so I’m sure my friend would like me to cheer for them. I have never seen anyone cry like my friend “D” when the the Saints lose and how insane “D” can be when they win. Needless to say my friend “D” is on cloud nine and cried when the SAINTS won the game to get to the Super Bowl. “D” recently moved back to New Orleans and is really excited about the game today. The week of the final play off game, “D” called and said that city of New Orleans was already celebrating 24 hours before the game. “D” said the whole city was drunk. LOL! After all the turmoil New Orleans has suffered, there is something special about the Super Bowl for them. However, I have to confess that rooting for the Colts because I’d like to see Peyton Manning win another Super Bowl. “D” will just have to forgive me. Besides, there’s always next year.

Idle time…Idle thinking

Posted in Italy, life, sports on April 26, 2008 by Robin Eller

I slept in this morning until 9 am. Even my dog slept in. I’ve been getting up early every Saturday morning for a 9:30 appointment. I don’t have to anymore. Yeah! It was so nice to sleep in but now I’m so lazy that I don’t want to do a thing on such a gorgeous day. I spoke to my friend in Rome this morning. It seems as if she’s been gone much longer than a month. I could hear contentment in her voice; something I haven’t heard in a long time until she made the decision to move to Italy. It’s no question that Italy is magical if the heart is open for that kind of joy.

Now I’m trying to decide when do I want to make my trip to Italia. I will definitely go between September and October. Of course my representation might be a little angry for my choice of time to go to Italy. Things tend to start up again in the land of television. But I only have one life to live. Besides, I’m trying to create work in other places and not limit myself to just L.A. I was told by a few people to refrain from coming to Italy in November again. I enjoyed seeing the beautiful leaves in the Fall; however my Italian friends seemed to be incredibly busy with work in November to enjoy the colors that surrounded them as I was free to do. I didn’t mind that everyone was busy because we made the most of the time we did have together. I’m told that business slows down in December so Italians are cramming everything in business-wise before shutting down for the Christmas holidays.

The NBA playoffs started and being the big sports fan that I am; I could sit in front of the TV this entire day and watch the games. I know that if I get caught up in good game, I will NEVER get anything done. Truth is, I don’t feel like doing anything so perhaps I’ll just listen to my body and just do….nothing. Oh here comes Guido Panini (photo) wanting to go out again for a walk. Now here’s something I will have to do….take the dog for a walk. We won’t be outside very long. It’s too hot and my dog hates the heat.
