It's fucking RAINING and I can damn well watch TV at the HOTEL!!

It’s fucking RAINING and I can damn well watch TV at the CONVENT! – WTF people!

Er, should I say POped. After months in Italia, our extended stay has come to an end with a crowning of sorts – the 1.5 Billion Catholics around the world seemed to surround us as we attended (in the rain no less) the Vatican’s Pope Show, waiting intently for that wisp of white smoke – siganlling the Cardinals have successfully elected the next Pope.

He is (Hmmm… no women, eh?) Bueno Aires Bishop, Jorge Bergoglio (see our Twitter feed) and he has teken the names Pope Francis the 1st after St. Francis of Assissi. I see the people sround us going apeshit and one almost made me drop this phone. Gotta get the hell out of here and back to the vino to celebrate – wish me luck making it to the other side of the square 🙂

See you back on the air on April 1st. Can’t wait – it’s time to speak fucking ENGLISH once more !!

13th | paraskevidekatriaphobia

Friday the 13th
Friday the 13th occurs when the thirteenth day of a month falls on Friday, which superstition holds to be a day of good or bad luck.

In the Gregorian calendar, this day occurs at least once, but at most three times a year.

Any month’s 13th day will fall on a Friday if the month starts on a Sunday.

In 2009 this applies to the months of February, March, and November. The next instance of this appears on the calendar for the year 2015
