Not that I'm shallow but that man is fine. Oh how I wish I was his thumb yesterday. On Erica's blog she has a photo of the Dolce & Gabbana underwear ad the team shot. D&G designed the uniforms for the national team. People were losing their minds over the game yesterday on the NYT's soccer blog. All those haters need to shut up. It was a stupid foul. The ref did not give them the game. The better team won.
Speaking of Italians, Giampiero called me yesterday afternoon to invite me to a dinner party. He still has an apartment in L.A. and is in town until tomorrow. He is shooting two shows in Rome so this was a short trip to renew his work visa. Last night he said my Italian is getting better. I'm not taking it this summer, so I hope I don't forget everything. I might meet with a tutor a couple times a month. I really need to understand the subjunctive verb tense before I move on to Advanced Italian. Giampiero told me to email him in Italian and he would correct them.
I had an event at CAA before the dinner which was fun because I got to see some people I haven't in a while. I am bummed that one friend (a real friend not a industry friend) who I haven't seen in ages came up to me said "hi" and left two seconds later left to talk to one of the agents. I get that these are work things and you have to schmooze. However, some of my other friends who are just as busy were able to have a conversation. Real conversations.
Dinner was very good but I only ate a little pasta. He held it in the courtyard of his building. It was way too late for me to eat. When I left at Midnight people were still there drinking wine. I am usually in bed by 10:30 so Midnight on a Monday is pushing it. I still got up at 5:30 and went to the gym. I have to get this post Italy weight off. I also need to continue to put more effort in my wardrobe. I got several compliments on my outfit last night, even from some of the male agents. Maybe I should wear blouses, skirts and heels more often.
One of my studio exec friends was telling me about her new boyfriend. He works for a film company overseas and they saw each other during the Cannes film festival. I forget which country he from. It's funny, a couple of my single female friends are dating men on other continents. Talk about long distance relationships.
